Madeira Winter Break

Madeira, located to the north of the Canary Islands, is only 65km long but for an island so small there is plenty to discover. Considered to be the Atlantic’s most beautiful island, it boasts spectacular scenery and is often teeming with plants and flowers. We stay in the capital, Funchal, an ideal base on the south of the island.
