Boasting year-round sunshine, a friendly atmosphere, a wide range of places to see and things to do, Madeira is one of our most popular destinations.
We offer a wide range of hotels on the island with a number of special offers exclusively for solo travellers.
The Quinta do Monte Hotel is a classic country-house style hotel set high in the hills above Funchal. It’s elegant, relaxed and a peaceful hideaway.
Quinta do Estreito Vintage House is similarly elegant and boasts stunning views from its commanding position on the southern coast of Madeira.
The four-star Girassol Hotel enjoys a particularly high number of repeat guests – it all comes down to the hotel’s friendly and relaxed atmosphere, together with the exceptionally courteous service and ideal location in Funchal.
Walk around charming Funchal where highlights include the old town, which is an easy 2km walk away, the Se Cathedral and covered market.
From gentle strolls to strenuous hiking, walkers of all ages and abilities can easily enjoy some of the finest countryside and flora in the world. There’s climbing, scuba-diving, horse-riding, golf, surfing, deep-sea fishing and boat rides for dolphin and whale watching (the peak season is April to October).
British Airways operates direct flights to Funchal from Gatwick.
