Dazzling cliffs set the scene on Madeira for a rugged and lush backdrop to the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. The cliffs twist and turn around the island and bring a feeling of wilderness that stretches across the interior of the island. From these cliffs, you can watch pods of dolphins rising in unison as they surf the waves. Picturesque fishing villages also hide down below, their scents of coffee and seafood carried on a breeze. Farming hamlets dot the interior hills, serene and picture perfect as they mark the panorama. Madeira is a perfect place for you quickly succumb to nature and overcome any travel fatigue.
You will be greeted at the airport and transferred to a timeless hotel that will overlook the ocean. Your hotel has been entertaining luminaries for over a century and is a place of indulgence and decadence to complement the wild feel of the island.
