The Madeira Region: Here in the Atlantic Ocean, not too far from the centre of Europe, we find the islands of Madeira and Porto Santo. The archipelago is famous for its friendly people, exceptional natural beauty and mild climate. Madeira Islands are just a short trip from Europe, to a destination where you can combine holidays on the beach, in the mountains or in the city. Madeira and Porto Santo are the ideal places to relax and restore the balance of mind and body that you need to face the stress of daily life. Madeira (Wood) is a beautiful verdant island. It is Portugal's 'Jewel in the Atlantic'. The island is a haven for anyone who enjoys walking, whether your taste runs to gentle strolls or hard core hiking. Madeira’s system of irrigation channels, known as levadas, carry water down from the mountains on gentle gradients. These levadas provide a ready-made system of trails. There are 1300 miles of them, crisscrossing the island, and they have level footpaths running along their entire length.

Die Wohnung liegt in einem Apartmenthaus sehr ruhig am Rande von Canico, ca. 50 m oberhalb des Atlantiks, so dass man das Meeresrauschen immer hören kann. Zum Strand Reis Magos hinunter sind es 3 Minuten, hinauf 5-8 Minuten, je nach Kondition (hat uns als Bergsteiger aber nichts ausgemacht). Der Blick von der Terrasse (ca. 3 x 7 m) ist einfach traumhaft: Atlantik pur, fast bis zu den Kanaren, und Sonne von Sonnenaufgang bis -untergang (8 - 18 h im Dezember). Sonnenschirm, 2 Liegen und ein großer runder Tisch mit 4 Stühlen sowie Außenbeleuchtung für abends sind vorhanden, so dass man den ganzen Tag dort verbringen möchte. Die Wohnungsbeschreibung und die Fotos entsprechen genau der Realität und die Wohnung ist sehr sauber und gut ausgestattet, sämtlicher Küchenbedarf ist vorhanden. Kleiner Nachteil: die Bratpfannen sind etwas abgenutzt; dafür gibt es einen riesigen Kühlschrank mit separatem Gefrierfach und die Matratzen sind neu. Die Agenturinhaberin Cecilia und ihre "Girls" waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit, unsere Wünsche hinsichtlich Kaffeemaschine und WiFi wurden sofort erfüllt und die Wohnungsübergabe war absolut problemlos. Wir konnten unser Leihauto sogar in der Tiefgarage parken. Mit dem Auto ist man schnell auf der VR1, die Bushaltestelle ist nur ca. 100 m entfernt. Zu guten Restaurants geht man ca. 10 - 15 Minuten zu Fuß, ebenso zu den kleinen Supermärkten, besser Großeinkauf im Modelo Canico.
The apartment is situated in calm surroundings of Canico, circa 50 m above the Atlantic ocean; so you could hear the sound of the sea all the time. Down to Reis Magos Beach it takes you 3 min, upwards you need 5-8 min, depending on your constitution (we’re both alpinists, so it was ok). The view from the terrace (3 x 7 m) over the Atlantic is really fantastic: almost to the Canaries, and you can sunbathe from sunrise to sunset (8 – 18 h in December). There are a sun umbrella, 2 sunbeds and a big round table with 4 chairs and outdoor lights for evenings, so you will spend there the whole day.
The describtion of the apartment and the photos correspond totally to reality and the apartment is very clean and well equipped, all kitchen tools are in place. Little minus: the pans are a bit outworn; but there is a huge fridge with separate freezer and the mattresses are new. Agency owner Cecilia and her “girls” were very nice and helpful, they promptly attended our wishes concerning coffee maker and WiFi and the key delivery was absolutely easy.
