Escape from the continent, travel far out to sea, and discover the magical archipelago of Madeira. Just North of the Canary Islands, the warm climate here is windswept by the forgiving trade winds from the Atlantic Ocean. The charming locals are welcoming, the beaches are pristine and idyllic, the Madeira apartments and villas are comfortable and affordable, and the historical attractions hearken back to the past days as a vital Portuguese outpost in times of both war and peace. Historic Madeira is a testament to the country’s grandeur and wealth, a veritable string of diamonds amidst an otherwise rough Atlantic. Atlantic cruise liners regularly make these splendid shores one of their most prized ports of call, although such a short stay on Madeira is hardly enough. Anything less than a week is too short for exploring the emerald brilliance of Madeira’s countryside, the white-walled splendour of its architecture. Portugal is an enchanting travel destination for those in search of somewhere to relax.
Enjoy the amazing views and lovely cities with a villa in Madeira
Regardless of how long you stay in a holiday home or apartment on this Portuguese territory, you are bound to spend time in the biggest city on the island, Funchal, Madeira’s port of call. In Funchal, the Cathedral is one of the most oft-visited historical attractions, and several wine bars will let you taste the local elixir that truly puts this island group on the map. But be sure to try your best to escape the hordes of Funchal and get out to experience the quaint charm of the untouched Santana and Monte Palace villages on the main island of Madeira. Booking a holiday rental property here offers an escape from daily life. Monte Palace is a fine testament to aristocratic splendour of the island, which extensively landscaped gardens that provide a romantic maze of flowers and hedge work for you and a loved one to get lost in. In addition to the splendid gardens, the city, whose houses crop up upon a hillside and offer a beautiful view, is a trendy destination for the rich and famous.
Discover a fascinating island during your stay in Madeira apartments
Santana, a small village, is a destination replete with historic wonder and intrigue. If you are taking a tour of the island, be sure that you do so with this city in mind. Throughout the islands, elegance is the name of the day. Holidaymakers will experience some of the finest, most upmarket nightlife in Portugal, although hundreds of miles away from mainland cities like Lisbon. Holiday accommodation in Madeira is a great way to discover this enchanting island of Portugal, but if you're looking for a beach location somewhere a bit closer to home, why not visit Porto or Faro, which has a particularly Portuguese atmosphere.
