Sail away to a gorgeous island destination...
Posted: 17 August 2011
This sub-tropical island in the Atlantic has a flight time of just under four hours, and is becoming increasingly hip. It’s a great place to take children who can have fun hoisting the Jolly Roger aboard a 15th-century galleon in Funchal Bay or swing like Tarzan from the treetops in the Laurissilva Forest. Quinta Estalagem do Vale was once an 18th-century manor house and is now a 41-room hotel with heated pools, a mini golf course, croquet field and Turkish bath. Prices start from €66 for a double room and €20 per child.
