With enchanting valleys of small houses nestled on the edge of cliffs surrounded by tiny cultivated vineyards, the eastern side of Madeira has a rugged natural beauty - much like the north of the island.

Accommodation:Vila Gale Santa Cruz Hotel
Room:Double Or Twin
Board:All Inclusive

Very quiet, we had been here before so knew what to expect. However, the hotel does put on a free mini bus service that does about 3 drop off collections to Funchal during the day. This service does get filled quick - I booked on the Monday to use the service on Wednesday.

Just 5 minutes from the airport but the noise didn't bother us at all. In fact, it was great to see the aeroplanes coming into land/take off. Where we stayed there were a couple of small supermarkets and a few restaurants although we didn't eat in any of them as we were all inclusive during our 4 day stay. The hotel offered a free return mini bus into Funchal and this was a nice change. For children there is a play area within walking distance. There weren't many families staying at the hotel but then it was only April.
