Majestic beauty near Madeira District holiday lettings

Little more than a pinprick on the map, Madeira certainly isn't humble when you see it for yourself. It hulks from the Atlantic Ocean like some petrified giant, a mass of black-rock volcanic stone and verdant rainforest that's set to take the breath away. Together, the isles of Madeira, Porto Santo and Desertas form the archipelago, packing in football-mad cities like Funchal, world-class golf courses, misty botanical gardens, rustic Portuguese tavernas – the list goes on. Seek out your Madeira holiday rentals to get a poolside view of this handsome, ocean-ringed getaway this year.

Things to do

Attractions near your holiday rental in the Madeira District

Madeira might just be the most football-mad place in all of Portugal. That might sound like a tall order, but this is the home of one Cristiano Ronaldo, after all. You can now unravel the rise of the island's own megastar at the shiny Museu CR7 in Funchal. Trophies, 100s of them, sports kits, sculptures and all sorts of footie paraphernalia help to chronicle his glorious goal-scoring career. Nearby, the Jardim Botanico is for those less soccer-inclined. It's got multicoloured orchids and palms and curious plants of all shapes and hues.

Activities

Things to do near Madeira District holiday homes

Madeira's ethereal landscapes of mist-gathering volcanos and forested valleys are a veritable playground for those who like an adventure. Some will hit the hair-pinning roads on a motorbike or 4 wheels for a montage of banana farms and sweeping Atlantic views. Others will pull on the walking boots to conquer the rugged trails of Ponta de Sao Lourenco or Bica da Cana, where waxy orchids and unforgettable panoramas unfold. Others will seek out Madeira holiday rentals by the sea, whiling away days on kayaks or with scuba gear to spot octopi and dolphins and more.

Weather

Climate during your stay in Madeira holiday homes

Fold up the swimming shorts and tropical shirts if you're heading to Madeira in the summer months that begin with June and end with September – those are the hottest times of all. You can expect regular highs nearing 30 then, often with the edge taken off courtesy of the ocean breezes. Trips in winter mean swapping booming crowds in popular towns like Funchal and Estreito da Calheta for lower temperatures more suited to hiking. What's more, seeking out Madeira holiday rentals between November and March promises to leave plenty of euros for those local seafood smorgasbords.

Natural features

Madeira's mighty peaks

It's the mountains that give Madeira its striking outline. Soaring to almost 2,000 metres above sea level with the cloud-piercing summit of Pico Ruivo, the islands are actually the tip of a colossal underwater volcano. Losing altitude means passing through a ring of lush laurel forests that suck in moisture from the regular sea fogs, growing moss-green and verdant above the ocean. Along the coast is where the black-stone ridges mingle with the Atlantic, forming salt-washed cliffs and the occasional beachfront, all encompassed by dolphin-peppered waves and the dramatic reserves of the Ponta de Sao Lourenco.
