Make holiday rental accommodation or a rental villa in Madeira your home away from home

Madeira Archipelago, 1,000 km off the coast of Portugal, consists of two inhabited islands, Madeira Island and Porto Santo, and two groups of uninhabited rock formations. Having been an important coaling station for cross Atlantic ships, Madeira quickly became a holiday paradise retreat for those on cruise ships. Madeira Island has become one of the world’s favourite island paradises, where visitors can sit back and relax in the tranquillity and charm of a Madeira holiday villa.

Places to holiday in Madeira, Portugal

The capital, Funchal, is a charming city which climbs the rocky hills from the harbour. The sights and sounds of Funchal are all accessible on foot from any self catering Madeira apartment. There are many sights to see in Funchal, but much of your time here will be spent in a café or restaurant sampling the cakes and fine sweet wines of Madeira.

The famous port of Calheta is best known for its yachts, although in my mind it should be known for its stunning natural beauty. A sailing holiday to Madeira would hugely benefit from a Madeira holiday rental in Calheta.

Santa Cruz is a magnificent destination for a Madeira holiday rental. Set in one of the most rural parts of Madeira Island, it has a variety of magnificent secluded beaches to enjoy.

Things to do in Madeira, Portugal

A Madeira holiday does however have the advantage of a magnificent climate and blissful surroundings, so there are many leisure activities to be enjoyed if you can tear yourself away from the Madeira beaches. Madeira is such a small island, it is hard to imagine just how much there is to see and do on a family holiday to Madeira, but one trip will certainly not be enough! Fine beaches, picturesque villages, huge volcanic caves, awe-inspiring views, fine wines, magnificent walking and superb deep sae fishing are all regular features on a Madeira holiday.

Walking in Madeira along the waterways or ‘levadas’ provides a remarkable experience. The countryside is spectacular, and the walking is not to strenuous. Public facilities for tennis, squash and many sports are available at Quinta Magnolia.

The deep sea fishing in Madeira is second to none. From June until September the best fishermen in the world arrive looking for blue marlin and blue fin tuna. Most fishing trips will take you past Cabo Girao, the highest cliffs in Europe.

Golf in Madeira is great. There are two main courses, but be warned, playing a round of golf in Madeira will test your fitness! Weekends in Madeira however should be spent sampling a local festa. Local music, food and dancing at these festas occur every weekend throughout the summer.

A family holiday can also take advantage of Madeira Theme Park, Santa CruzAqua Park and the Island tours on offer. Whale watching, surfing, scuba diving and balloon rides are also available, so there is certainly no shortage of entertainment from a Madeira holiday villa!

Fabulous view and secure off-road parking

5 of 5
Just spent 9 nights at this lovely apartment and enjoyed every minute. Bruno was very welcoming and the apartment had everything you could need. As we had a hire car, the secure off-road parking was really useful as the roads around Funchal are very narrow and parking is limited. The view was amazing, although there is no outdoor space (made clear when you book it), and the location is a good way out of the town, making a car essential. We did walk into town a couple of times (about 20 minutes downhill), but be prepared for a real slog back up the hill on the way home! There was a bus stop outside the apartment, but having a car we never needed to work out the logistics of using the bus, and there is a large supermarket easily accessible in 5 minutes by car. Overall, this was a great apartment on a lovely island. Thank you Bruno!

WOW! Faultless

5 of 5
After searching many self catering apartments in Funchal this one, in particular, looked rather special. The excellent reviews further confirmed this to be the one. We were not disappointed. The accommodation is faultless and all crockery and kitchen utensils are of a high standard - it is quality throughout the home. Then we have Hugo......attentive, caring and truly generous to his guests. There is a small supermarket close by which sells most provisions at very reasonable prices. We truly had a wonderful stay and highly recommend the apartment and Funchal. Enjoy!
