Make a holiday rental home or cottage in Gaula, Portugal your home away from home

Gaula is a small parish that is located just a few kilometres south of the city of Santa Cruz, in the south-east corner of the Portuguese archipelago of Madeira. The island is well-known for its laid-back pace of life, and Gaula is a perfect example of this, being a sleepy village that is situated out in the middle of the countryside. Self-catering accommodation options in Gaula are mainly rural cottages and houses – making the most of these unspoilt surroundings.

Things to do in Gaula, Portugal

Agriculture has long been the most important industry in Gaula, and this is evident by the sheer number of fruit orchards dotted around the parish. In fact, the entire surrounding area consists of countryside and unspoilt scenery, with mountains to be found to the north-west and the Atlantic Ocean to the south-east, meaning Gaula is a great place to visit for a relaxing, ‘get away from it all’ holiday. In Gaula, fishing is also a mainstay of the local economy, and a great fish market can be found along the sea front, on the way to Santa Cruz.

With its great scenery, mountainous terrain and fantastic weather, Madeira is almost designed for walking and hiking. There are an abundance of walks to be found around Gaula, ranging from beginner-level to those that will challenge even the seasoned hiker. Outdoor sports lovers will also be pleased to find that several golf courses can be found in and around the parish.

Within the centre of the village are all of the amenities you require to enjoy a self-catering vacation in Gaula, including several food shops and small restaurants. If you are looking for more vibrant evening entertainment you can make the short journey into the city of Santa Cruz.

Places to visit on holiday in Gaula, Portugal

Santa Cruz is the nearest place to head if you are seeking busier tourist facilities such as large supermarkets, busy restaurants and cafe-bars. Funchal, the islands capital city, steps things up another level, and has by far the biggest array of attractions, amenities and sites of interest in the island. Though you may prefer the serenity of Gaula as a base, no visit to Madeira is complete without a visit to Funchal.

Weather in Gaula, Portugal

The geographical position of Madeira results in a year-round warm climate. August and September are the hottest months in which to visit Gaula, with a daily average temperature of 26°C, and little in the way of rain. Even the ‘coldest’ months, which are found at the beginning of the year, often receive temperatures above 20°C, though rainfall does increase significantly during this period.

Flights to Gaula, Portugal

Madeira Airport (FNC), also known as Funchal Airport, is just a few short kilometres from Gaula, and receives a number of flights from the UK, particularly during summer months. The cheapest prices are usually found through easyJet, but it is worth checking every operator, as there are often special offers to be taken advantage of.

Relaxing holiday home

4 of 5
We spent the Christmas week in the apartment and enjoyed it really well. The environment is calm, and the airport at the bottom of the sea did not bother anyone. The apartment had all the necessary and really large terrace was nice to enjoy both the sun away from meals. The hosts were very helpful and friendly.
