MADEIRA & THE AZORES BROCHURE
Madeira & The Azores – The "Jewel in the Atlantic” or the “Floating Garden”, the island of Madeira is an unspoilt oasis.
Not surprisingly referred to as the "Jewel in the Atlantic” or the “Floating Garden”, the island of Madeira is an unspoilt oasis enjoying a year round sub–tropical climate less than 5 hours flying time from the UK.
The British have been regular visitors for over 300 years, inparticular last century, when wealthy Victorians chose the island as their favourite retreat to avoid cold, damp winters. They fell in love with the warmth, natural beauty and the Madeiran people – not much has changed since.
The isolated island, 400 miles from the Moroccan coast and just 35 miles long and 14 miles wide, is made up of jagged volcanic mountains soaring above the clouds to 6000 feet. Much of the island is covered in forest and is protected as national parkland. Once the important stepping stone for the New World trade routes many examples of exotic plants exist and today English Roses grow alongside Asian Orchids. Hydrangeas, bougainvillaea, magnolias and azaleas bloom effortlessly in the warm gulf–stream climate and the magnificent parks and gardens are a joy to explore.
The high quality accommodation, Madeiran service and hospitality, along with the islands natural beauty, combine to make the ideal holiday choice for couples and families alike.
