“Madeira is one of the most ruggedly beautiful sights I have ever seen. Sheer drops along the north coast send waterfalls cascading into the foaming sea. In December you can have snow on the peaks, while sensuous bougainvilea caresses the houses in the south of the island.
The levadas provide world class walking, in addition to the irrigation which is the island’s life blood. Every inch of the terraces is utilised to feed the islanders, and produce the wine which is exported throughout the world. The Portuguese flavour is there in the intricately tiled streets, but Madeira has a determined character all her own.”
