Painting & Walking Holidays Madeira, Portugal

Portugal • Madeira


Madeira – waterfalls & ancient levadas

Officially discovered by Portuguese navigators in 1419, the archipelago of Madeira is situated in the north Atlantic, some 437 miles away from the coast of Africa. The island has a rich history and still maintains many of its traditions.

With its mild climate and luxuriant vegetation, Madeira is a wonderful oasis and the people seem to be moulded by the land itself - austere like the mountains yet sweet and warm like its famous wine.

Where we stay

Pousada dos Vinháticos

Just 20 minutes from the capital town of Funchal, and set high in a valley amidst lush vegetation, this mountain retreat offers superb views, a place to relax and easy access to some of the great walks and painting locations of the island.

Pousada dos Vinháticos is a small rural retreat. It is a simple, comfortably furnished and cosy hotel, run by friendly, hospitable people and serving good food and wine. All the rooms are en-suite and have spectacular views from the windows.
