PORTUGAL: MADEIRA

MADEIRA

Sedate in style, Madeira -the ‘Pearl of the Atalntic- basks in constant spring-like conditions in the warm Gulf Stream Waters. Dormant volcanic slopes are blanketed in lush emerald forests, their craggy peaks wreathed in mist and peering down across the rugged coastline to the shimmering seas beyond. Palm trees and flower-strewn parks and gardens, grace the sophisticated harbour capital of Funchal, and in picturesque coastal villages, crystal-clear waters lap against smooth pebble beaches. Lovers of the great outdoors are lured to Madeira by the unique network of levada walking trails. Those seeking top-class creature comforts can select between sophisticated colonial elegance or more intimate family run quintas.
