Located several hours’ flight time from the European mainland, Madalena Do Mar is a civil parish offering apartment rental and villa rental accommodations on the Portuguese island of Madeira. Nestled between the ocean on one side and sheer cliffs on the other, vacation rentals in this settlement are sheltered from the North Winds and benefit from the heat of the steep cliffs to create a unique climate perfect for not only banana trees, but vacationers from all over the world.
The lowest average temperatures you could experience in a vacation rental occur during January and are usually a comfortable sixteen degrees Celsius. Though the climate is considered to be mild sub-tropical, the Gulf Stream keeps things warm throughout the year. During the summer months, temperatures usually climb up to the mid-twenties, leaving vacationers free to leave their villas at any time to enjoy all that the island has to offer. The busiest tourist months of the year are June, July and August, so if you want the best selection of apartment rentals and villa rentals, April, May and September would be your best bet.
The name Madalena Do Mar originates from the fifteenth century, when a Polish prince named Henrique Alemao built a chapel in honor of Saint Mary Madeleine. The seaside town that grew from then on has since thrived on sugar cane and more recently bananas. The residents soon discovered what a jewel they sat upon was and opened up vacation rentals for tourists from all over the world. Condo rentals and Apartment rentals are plentiful.
As with most seaside destinations, water sports are a big hit on the island. So take some time away from your condo rental and dive into a vast selection that includes surfing, sailing and snorkeling. For those wishing to take a more relaxed approach to the deep blue, daily cruises and fishing tours are a perfect alternative.
After settling into your vacation rental you will quickly discover just how much the island itself has to offer. Take a horse riding tour and view exotic island scenery from below, or strap into a paraglider and get a sweeping view from hundreds of feet in the air. You’ll find yourself drawn away from your accommodation to tour a series of natural cave formations throughout the archipelago.
Lodging on the island like villa rentals and apartment rentals offer spectacular views of the horizon and are all within walking distance of the ocean. One of the first things you’ll want to do after settling into your accommodation will be to plant a sun umbrella on the beach and leave your footprints in the sand.
