Madeira island has its ups and downs, being a mountainous place, and all of them are a must-see.
The Hotel Residence Conde Carvalhal is a great place to base your camp. Away from Lido's hotel center (although you can walk there easily, if you want to), makes you believe your one of the locals. If you treasure your independence, stay there, in the old manor or in the design studios (with a nice kitchenette), full of light, space and garden views that goes as far as Funchal and the busy harbour. The staff is precious in giving away great tips for good food (Olives and Venda da Dona Maria are not to be missed) as well as in how to get your appetite back, trekking away in the 'levadas' and other official paths (we recommend the PR1 trek from Pico do Areeiro to Pico Ruivo). Great breakfast (if you want it), good indoor parking and a lovely walk to the old town and center (don't take the car, it's hard to find a parking spot in town). Luxury made simple.
