The island of Madeira is located just a hop, skip and a jump away from any city in Europe – the island with year around sun, just waiting to be discovered. Every corner of the island is special, and brims with a unique mix of African and European heritage. Traipsing through the northern edges of the island, with its luscious green valleys and ubiquitous “Laurissilva” trees, you could be forgiven for thinking you’re in Asia.
With the old properties from the island’s British past and the beautiful surrounding fields, the centre of the island feels like a mix between the Swiss Alps and the English country side. Along the coastline the feeling is truly African – the rocks and gardens full of different flowers so close to the warm blue ocean.
One of the greatest attractions of the Island of Madeira lies in its spectacular landscape. Its luxurious vegetation continues to fascinate all those drawn to nature. This archipelago, included in the bio-geographic region of Macaronesia, remains a place of great scientific value, distinguished by UNESCO as a site of World Natural Heritage.
