Madeira is certainly known for its wine and beyond! Thanks to its subtropical climate when temperatures drop in the rest of Europe, the sun keeps shining on this island. The landscape of Madeira changes quickly within a few kilometres, going from sandy coasts to cliffs to a mountainous hinterland to flat areas towards the sea.

Regardless the location of your accommodation, you can always choose between the elegance offered by traditional structures and the comforts of more modern facilities. There are small independent apartments, often located inland and near the nature, as well as different types of hotels offering a series of high hand services.

All accommodations in Madeira are recognised for their hospitality, service, good taste, and quality. Here comes a small guide on where to stay in Madeira in order to make the most out of your holiday according to your passions and your needs.


Funchal by night

Funchal is the capital of the island as well as the most developed urban area. It is a modern city that managed to preserve its original charm. It is very central and here you will find some great accommodations as well as many agencies offering tours of Madeira, boat cruises, car and scooter rentals.

Funchal is the perfect choice for those who want to spend their holidays at the beach, making the most out of all the available services. Accommodations range from luxury to budget hotels, as well as apartments featuring private gardens and a great view.

This town is ideal also for those who are visiting Madeira for the very first time and prefer staying in an area where it is possible to find different kinds of services.

Southern coast

Câmara de Lobos, in the south of Madeira

Those who are looking for a more isolated accommodation far from the tourists, will find the southern coast of Madeira a great choice. One of the most comfortable and welcoming villages is the Jardim do Mar, located on the south-west side of Madeira. This area is known for its climate, which is usually warmer and more sunny compared to the rest of the island.

Other quiet areas are Ponta do Sol and Calheta. The southern coast is definitely the best choice for those who want to experience the beach and enjoy some privacy. Here there are hotels and apartments that can be rented for short term or even for the weekend.

If you choose to stay along the southern coast we recommend to rent a car in order to reach it and to explore the surrounding area.

Northern coast

Sao Vicente, on the northern coast of Madeira

During the last 15 years the northern coast of Madeira has been at the center of a modernization process in order to connect this area to the rest of the island. If you are looking for a good base to alternate the beach with hiking trails, then the northern coast is the place you should go for.

Here nature lovers will make the most out of the island; Estalagem de Mar is surrounded by the beautiful mountains of Sao Vicente, a lovely town located along the coast.

Another interesting town, despite its small size, is Porto Moniz located on the north-western side of the island. Many trekking paths start from here, ranging between different levels of difficulty. There are not many tourist services in Porto Moniz. This is definitely a good choice for those who are looking for a simple and basic type of accommodation.

Staying in the hinterland

For those who love trekking and mountains, the inland area of Madeira offers different accommodations, mostly small guesthouses and hotels. Eira do Serrado is a good base where to stay.

If you choose an accommodation in the inland you will surely save some money, however climate conditions around here may be pretty unpredictable. Perturbations around this area of the island are more frequent all year long, and you will be interrupted by some rainfall during your hikes and excursions.

Dorisol Pousada dos Vinhàticos: the beauty of the landscape is the main strength of this structure. A basic farmhouse featuring 11 rooms, all furnished with rustic decors. It is the ideal place for those who want to enjoy long hikes and dive into nature. The owners of the structure will be happy to help you and give you all kinds of tips.
