Funchal holidays transport you to the south east of the idyllic island of Madeira. It is the capital city and lies in a valley shaped like an amphitheatre which reaches the height of twelve hundred metres, giving natural shelter from the elements. The town creeps up the hillside from the harbour, its white walls and red-tiled roofs surrounded by stunning flora. It is a very attractive area indeed, with historic buildings and beautiful gardens; cobbled streets and charming squares; the Lido Promenade and harbour; all combing to make a winning combination. Low cost Funchal holidays are very popular with couples of all ages. While the lack of beaches tends to deter those with young children, the three public swimming pools on the promenade are ideal for families with teenagers. Walkers come to Funchal in their droves to access the interior by walking along the levadas, irrigation channels that crisscross the island. Funchal also attracts golfers. Six miles from the town is the Palheiro Golf Course which has stunning views in all directions. It would be hard to find a more beautiful setting for the game.
Whatever type of accommodation you choose, the quality will never disappoint and your welcome will always be warm and friendly. The wide variety of restaurants caters for all tastes as there is everything from traditional fare to international cuisine. As you'd expect on an Atlantic island, fish features prominently on menus. Always fresh and simply cooked, it is delicious. Shoppers will certainly find all they need in the many shops. Madeira could never be called a party island and Funchal, although the capital and having some lively venues, does not provide dusk to dawn entertainment.
Low cost Funchal holidays can be taken at any time of year as the winters are pleasantly mild and the summers are never too hot. The arrival of spring, when the island becomes an abundance of colour as trees and bushes blossom and early flowers open, is a particularly popular time to visit. Several low cost airlines fly direct to Madeira from regional airports. You can check on the Cheekytrip website for the availabilty of holidays from your local airport.
