The region of Madeira is constituted by the islands of Madeira, Porto Santo, Desertas and Selvagens, all in one Autonomous Region.
In Madeira island, the sun and the flowers reign and you find villages over the sea, pools and marinas with a cosmopolite taste, dominated by mountains and mysterious mists. On the other hand, Porto Santo has long extensions of golden sand and a vast ocean view.
Almost the entire Madeira island is classified, forming the Natural Park of Madeira, which headquarters in Funchal hosts the Botanic Garden – probably the most beautiful in the World.
Taking a walk by the “levadas” – dating back to the 15th
century , being used to transport water to the lower areas – is a must- do due to their high landscape and biological value. These take the visitors to places with specific classifications of natural reserves, like Caldeirão Verde, Pico do Areeiro, Ponta do Garajau and Ponta de São Lourenço.
Walking by the village’s routes, we find Calheta, with excellent planting areas, the fishing village of Câmara dos Lobos, Machico with all the strength of its history, Ribeira Brava, a crucial point of passage to the north cost, the micro climate and the exotic flora of Monte and the traditional houses of St. Vicente.
