There is an efficient bus network criss-crossing the island but hiring a car is a distinct advantage as it allows you to explore the island. There is a designated parking bay for the apartment.

The local beaches (two have soft golden sand) are about a mile away and can be reached on foot via pathways or by car in a few minutes.

Madeira is, of course, famous for its levadas. There are over 2000 kilometres of levadas on this beautiful island. There are levada walks for beginners and for more experienced walkers. The more advanced ones require you to have proper boots. Many of the walks take you to the inner island where no car can reach and you can experience the real unspoilt Madeiran countryside.

There are 2 golf courses on the island with a third underway. There are health and leisure club facilities locally.  Horse riding, water sports, whale/dolphin watching and sea fishing trips are also available.

Madeira is very popular with bird watchers and ramblers, and there are various web sites and publications of recommended walks to explore this beautiful island.

There is information in the apartment covering a wide variety of activities including walks, hang gliding, balloon and helicopter rides, diving and gardens and other places of interest to visit.

Madeira is a beautiful, quiet island and an ideal 'all year round' holiday destination. It is famous for its all year round mild climate rarely dropping below 18C nor much above 25C.

Funchal is about 25 minutes away and the airport, about 40 minutes. Both are straightforward journeys. Various flight options are available including many low cost flights from provincial airports including Easyjet.
