Our holiday in Madeira

We had an absolute blast in Madeira for our one week stay. Same as last year, we took a parents holidays, while Luca stayed with my parents in Romania. It works out very well for our family since Luca gets to bond more with his grandparents and we get to enjoy some much needed time alone.

Madeira is just breathtaking, with the ocean on one side and the green hills on the other. It is not your typical beach holiday since there is less sand and more rocks. For us this was not an issue, we do love laying on the beach, no doubt about it, but we prefer to sightsee, to walk around and to stay by the pool for a day or two. The infinity pool was not too big, but it offered the perfect view of the ocean.

The hotel was really nice. It was probably one of the best choices in hotels we did in a while. Thanks to Travelettes for recommending it, it was the best!

To move around the island, we rented a car via the hotel. The roads are mostly hills so you need a car with something of an engine to be able to get by without having a nervous breakdown.

We had the best meals at the following restaurants that were recommended by a local.

Santo Antonio, for the best meat

Polo Norte for the best fish

La Planka, stunning view and very good food

Snack Bar A Pipa, Porto da Cruz, ate the best fish here as well

We did a hike one of the days to Vereda dos Balcoes and since it was morning and in the woods, it was a bit chilli so I put on all the summer clothes I had with me and ended up looking like a crazy person. We met the sweetest old lady that was knitting hats and I got one for Luca.

The natural pools that are built with water from the ocean are a great experience. Spent a few hours there enjoying the sun and the water.

Cabo Girao had the most spectacular view
