Luxury Funchal Holidays

Funchal is the capital of Madeira, where the majority of locals live and most visitors stay. Narrow cobbled streets are lined with shops, restaurants and cafes, while lively bars and the Casino Madeira provide a varied nightlife. Elegant avenues are lined with colonial style houses and there are a multitude of pretty parks. In the heart of the town stands the 16th century cathedral, with its beautiful ceiling carved from local wood. Take a stroll along the marina to admire the yachts, browse the colourful Farmers' Market in the old town, or visit the memorable Botanical Gardens and many museums and art galleries. Visitors flock here for the Spring Flower Festival, where you can immerse yourself in a riot of colour and scent, as a spectacular parade of elaborate floats display the island's flora.
