I'm planning to visit Madeira in early November, I'm sure the weather will be unpredictable, but I wonder if any locals or regular visitors to Madeira might be able to tell me what the weather is normally like at this time of year - early/mid November?
Also, is it easy to hire a car from the airport in Funchal?
Is Funchal the best location to stay in at this time of year? Is it central enough to then visit other places too?
Last question! - would anyone recommend any bed&breakfasts in Funchal? Something simple, but good.
Lastly - can you swim in the sea in November? I'm used to the English channel/north sea so I don't need it to be too warm!
Would love to hear from anyone!
Thanks in advance.
