About the location
Jardins do Lago is located along Madeira’s southern coastline, where you’ll find the pretty, cosmopolitan town of Funchal. The town is home to a spectacular array of facilities and is full of upmarket shops and restaurants, as well as stunning botanical gardens just waiting to be explored. One of the main attractions is its cable car, which will take you from the top of the surrounding cliffs, over the whitewashed buildings of the town, to the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean. 

The whole town of Funchal is full of wonderful plants and greenery, with bougainvillea adorning the walls and the mountain forests providing a luscious backdrop. The abundant nature of its surroundings has made its way into the town’s cuisine, where you can enjoy fresh locally caught seafood, produce from the island’s farms and delicious locally made wines.
