MADEIRA – MOUNTAINS & LEVADAS Moderate or challenging walking on the Garden Isle of Madeira
 Famed for its levadas and flowers it is an excellent walking destination with an equable year round climate. Some walks take us along levadas – the irrigation waterways ingeniously engineered both over and through the rock to bring water from high mountain springs, there are well over 1,000 miles of them on the island. Others explore peaceful mountain valleys and coastal tracks follow the line of rugged sea cliffs with spectacular views. Regional R1

Its highest point, Pico Ruivo, at nearly 1800m, looks out over a mass of peaks and a violently formed landscape. Over the years Madeira has been described as the "pearl of the Atlantic" and "the floating garden" Regional R1

PALACES, CASTLES & GARDENS OF SINTRA A week of Portuguese charm and splendour - an Adagio holiday
Cooled by the Atlantic breeze and partly shaded by forest, the hot sunny climate of Sintra was the summer residence of Portuguese monarchs for six hundred years. The quiet fascination of Sintra deserves a slower pace, time to sip the wine of European culture touched by the earlier hand of Islamic influence.
