Holidays to Madeira offer Portuguese luxury at its finest

With flights from the UK to Madeira clocking in at under four hours, you'll be sipping glasses of Madeiran wine in no time.

As the birthplace of a global wine phenomenon, Madeira is privy to some show-stopping luxury. Nicknamed the 'Floating Garden,' it's a tiny Portuguese island in the Atlantic known for its rainbow-coloured vistas speckled with flowers, forests and terracotta roofs. With man-made beaches featuring imported sand, fresh seafood-touting restaurants and more wine than you'll know what to do with, Madeira dishes up holidays that are heavy on style.

Funchal is the island's capital and one of the cleanest capital cities in Europe, acting as a picturesque backdrop for a holiday in the sun. The gorgeous architecture sets it apart, so peeling yourself away from your hotel's spa is a must here. Another Madeira destination, Calheta, offers a rugged skyline and a little beach shipped from Morocco, while Canical and its beautiful marina are home to a luxurious hotel complex styled after a traditional Madeiran hamlet.

Living the high life in Madeira

If you're going to live large in Madeira, you'd be wise to add tasting Madeiran wine to the top of your list. This particular brand of vino originated in the Madeira islands, ranging in flavour from dry to sweet, and is available to drink at the vast majority of restaurants here. Wineries and vineyards can also give you the full Madeira wine experience. Once you've secured yourself a glass, simply sit back and bask in the Portuguese sunshine.

Being the capital, Funchal comes with the widest range of luxurious style. It hosts upscale hotels, a wide array of botanical gardens – including one high in the hills that you'll need to reach via a scenic cable car – and the biggest selection of top notch restaurants. Both Calheta and Canical keep things on a lower key, with Calheta offering a Blue Flag beach and its very own arts centre, and Canical impressing with its sweet little marina steeped in old world charm.
