Make a self catering villa or holiday rental at Sao Vicente, Madeira Island your home away from home

Things to Do at Sao Vicente, Madeira Island

Beaches

Some of the best beaches on Madeira are along the north coast and Sao Vicente is no exception. They offer ideal surfing conditions along with snorkeling, scuba diving, boat trips, sport fishing charters and whale and dolphin spotting.

Enjoy Local Food and Drink

Madeira has some fine local and international restaurants which serve mainly fish and seafood. Bread soup is a local delicacy along with "espada com banana", scabbard fish with baked banana. The Madeira wine makes a wonderful dessert wine to round off any meal.

Walk the Levadas

Madeira is ideal for walking along the levadas which were aqueducts built centuries ago to carry water down to the agricultural areas on the drier south side of the island. They now provide around 600 miles of scenic paved trails with stunning scenery and waterfalls.

Places to Visit Near Sao Vicente, Madeira Island

Santana

A little further along the coast from your Sao Vicente holiday villa is the small town of Santana, best known for its traditional A-framed houses, called "palheiros". These tiny houses are covered with thatched straw roofs and are mostly used for storage nowadays. There is also a cable car at Santana which takes visitors past a waterfall on the journey down the cliffs to the shore below.

Funchal

The main city on Madeira is Funchal and it is located in a natural amphitheatre around the busy port. The compact city centre has plenty of shops and restaurants along with botanical gardens, historic churches and wine cellars for sampling the locally made fortified wine. The old flower market with its exotic blooms is a popular attraction, along with the Cathedral, the Santa Clara Convent and the Sao Lourenco Palace.

Cabo Girao

One of the most popular places to visit from your Sao Vicente villa is the Cabo Girao cliffs. These are some of the world's highest ocean cliffs and offer dizzying views down to the sea 590m (1935 feet) below.

Weather at Sao Vicente, Madeira Island

                                                              We had a lovely week in this comfortable home. The gardens which belong to the house and to the owners' place which is adjacent are very well kept and must be even nicer as the year goes by. We used the indoor BBQ on several occasions, first time we have encountered such an opportunity! The immediate scenery was good and you are very close to the north coast road which we explored at length.

                                                              Wonderful holiday property with a superb balcony to enable you to listen to the crashing waves

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              We visited in November and found the property to be spotlessly clean, very new and modern and with a wonderful balcony overlooking the sea. With shops just next door (and a superb bakery/cafe underneath the apartment) and the town just a 5 minute walk away the location was spot on too. Would recommend to anyone.

                                                              We had a very enjoyable 10 day stay at Casa da Ribeira Seca. The property is situated well above the road with great views and is very quiet. Very comfortable bed and a good shower. Teresa, who showed us round the property and called in from time to time, was charming and helpful. We would gladly stay here again.
