    • What to pack apart from boots and waterproofs!

      Funchal Feb 22, 2015 at 8:39 AM

      Apologies if I am duplicating the question - had trouble registering. Arriving Funchal 25th Feb. and forecast not good. Should we pack jeans and jumpers or lightweight trousers and tee shirts? Not much space in Easyjet hand luggage with husband's size 12 trainers. Dress/skirt for evening hotel dinner? Any advice much appreciated.

      Câmara de Lobos Oct 14, 2014 at 10:04 AM

      I have been told that many years ago (1800s), unwanted children were left at the hospital/convents in Camara de Lobos and often got the last name of 'de Camara'. How can I verify this? I have several people in my lineage from Camara de Lobos, Madeira with this last name who also have 1 parent or none listed on their baptism certificates.

      In about 1980 I was in Funchal. Not far from the port, I came across a huge old steam locomotive, painted and polished, standing on a section of rail in a garden. I have not been able to find a trace of this locomotive since. Did I dream it ? Help. Keith Woods, London.

    • Buses schedule and routes

      Madeira Island Aug 28, 2013 at 5:16 AM

      Hello,

      Can you please help me consulting on the buses routes and schedules (or maybe taxi fares) on Madeira? I will be travelling to the island in September. I am travelling with my fiancee on a romantic trip and we would like to visit a few gorgeous places.

      These are the Jesus Christ statue, the Cabo Girao cliff, the Ponta do Pargo lighthouse and a ride on the Cable car with visiting the Tropcial garden. Our driving experience is less than 1 year, so we are unable to rent a car.

      Could you please help me and explain how can we get from our hotel to the desirable places? We have booked Vidamar Resorts hotel on Estrada Monumental.

      First we would like to go to see the Jesus Christ statue, then get to the Cable Car and see the famous Garden there. After that we would love to visit one of the europe's highest cliff - Cabo Girao. And last but not least, we want to see the Ponta do Pargo lighthouse, have a meal there and then return to the hotel on Estrada Monumental in Funchal.

      I appreciate your help!

    • Query about the four views hotel in Funchal

      Hi

      Myself and a friend were thinking of booking a holiday at your hotel through Thomsons Travel Agent on the 3rd March 2014.

      On the reviews it quotes that your hotel will be closed due to refurbishment.

      Please can you tell me if this is the case because all the travel agents are not telling customers.

      Can you also recommend any other hotel which is suitable for senior citizens.
