HOLIDAYS IN MADEIRA & PORTO SANTO
Hotels and self-catering accommodation in Madeira

Madeir and Porto Santo - map showing the loaction of these  islands
Madeira Wine

Madeira has long been regarded as a place for honeymooners and the older generation - but now is fast re inventing it self as as a more vibrant destination which offers more then afternoon tea at Reids Hotel!

In contrast to most of the brash Canary islands which are also located just off the coastline of North Africa, Madeira offers lush green landscapes, valleys and high mountains instead of the volcanic beaches and barren landscapes offered by the Canaries.More gentile in character but Funchal has changed dramatically from the cruise ship guests and the few five star hotels that once catered almost exclusively for the British.

Now more international in outlook – the island offers two of the best golf courses, Funchal has more varied selection of restaurants bars and shopping than ever before. It also has a NEW airport now extended to almost twice its former length - so a much more pleasant landing than a few years back when aircraft had to take two attempts to land within the landing strip length!

Funghal Marina

Funchal still attracts the cruise ships and there are plenty of shops and facilities to keep them entertained - lively cafés and trendy shops amidst buildings dating back to the 15th century.

Madeira scenary

However, it is the beautiful scenery, which remains untouched, and walking is a pleasure especially in winter when temperatures remain mild. The islands best secret is the countryside in the two thirds of the island that remain protected and where there are many National parks – ideal seeing exotic plants and birds alike.

Other attractions include game fishing. Then there is Scuba diving in the marine reserves - manta rays, turtles abound. Then there is cycling along non-traffic paths, riding, three golf courses, hang gliding, climbing both mountains and cliffs, treking, Jeep safaris, jet skiing, sailing and wind surfing.

So you still think it’s for the romantics and the OAP’s!!

Madeira has few beaches - but the sister island of Porto Santo is surrounded with them and also has a Ballesteros designed golf course, some enchanting beachside hotels and within 40km away by boat or plane. - We can offer a two-island centre holiday with flights included (ring us on to discuss your requirements).

Temperatures average out in winter to 20°C (68°F) to 23°C in summer (73°F)

Last point: the islands are very safe you stand about as much chance as being mugged as in an English Police station….
Go for it – Try Madeira!!
you will never forget your visit.

Island of Porto Santo (Madeira)

A beach scene on Porto Santo

Just a twenty-minute flight away (or a 2 hours 40 minutes boat ride) is the island of Porto Santo, which measures 14 miles long by about 5 miles wide.

In contrast to it’s larger sister island, Madeira, it has lots of fine sandy beaches and dunes.

This is a ”get away from it all” sort of place although if you are a golfing fanatic you will be able to play on a Ballesteros designed 18 hole course. Then there is horse riding possibilities, sailing and a scuba diving centre is on the island.

Most of the beaches are on the south coast, which extends for some 5 miles. The nice thing about Porto Santa that it has only a few hotels - so the place never gets swamped with tourists.

A potted history is that the island was discovered by accident during a storm in 1418 and it’s most famous inhabitant was Christopher Columbus who met the Governors daughter and married the lady-his original house is now a museum dedicated to his exploits. The island is very dry in summer - great for the beach enthusiasts - in winter when the temperatures run into the low 70's the main growing season the island produces figs, melons and tomatoes. The scenery is not as rugged as Madeira - low hills with the odd windmill on top. Despite being dry in summer the island has a thriving bottled water industry very much in demand in Portugal.

The attraction of Porto Santo is that it is quiet - very little nightlife, which is reduced to some excellent in-expensive restaurants offering seafood, bars offering local wines.

A great place to relax and stop watching the clock!

The sea temperature is fairly constant all year from 65°F in winter to 74°F in high season (18-23°C) so is ideal for sea bathing and scuba diving.

Hotel Porto Quinta do Serrado

Hotel Porto Quinta do Serrado

A delightful four star hotel which has only 25 rooms and suites and located in a small valley overlook the blue Atlantic ocean on the islands north coast. The nearest beaches are about three kms away so a car would be very handy.

The property has been constructed from local stone and timbers and is very attractive from the outside and much thought has also gone into the interior decoration and furnishings with beamed ceilings offering a high quality but rustic charm to the whole hotel.

Hotel Porto Quinta do Serrado - bedroom

The bedrooms have beamed ceilings and are fully air-conditioned. Each one has a small garden terrace or a balcony and the en suite bathrooms have hairdryers.

Complete with an outdoor pool and surrounded by 2,000 sq yards of exotic gardens with footpaths that lead through bougainvillea and mimosa trees. The hotel is a far cry from the large holiday factories that exist throughout the globe. The other facilities of the hotel include:


• TV Room
• Library
• Games room
