Garden House trip to Madeira 2023

Saturday 18th February - Saturday 25th February

Join the Garden House for our second trip to the island of Madeira, a very special place and well-named as a ‘plant person’s paradise’.

We had such an enjoyable time in 2019 that we knew we wanted to return, hence this trip – and February is a great time to escape the short days at the tail-end of winter!

The cost includes:

*We’re staying in the same hotel as before.  7 nights, bed & breakfast, at the 4* Golden Residence Hotel in Funchal.

*Return flights, Gatwick to Funchal.

*Guide, plus luxury coach for all Madeira trips.

*Visits to several interesting gardens, including Monte Palace Exotic Gardens, the Palheiro Garden, and the Quinta Jardins do Lago.

*Four lunches (*) and two evening meals in selected restaurants.

*Madeiran cooking experience – learn about traditional Madeiran food and prepare a lunch to share (*).

*Madeiran wine tasting

*Cocktail and nibbles at the famous Reid’s Hotel.

*Levada walk, and Toboggan ride (not compulsory!).

*Cable car ride.

*Free time to explore further or shop!

We are delighted to confirm the same guide as our last visit.  She was friendly, professional and fun – and very knowledgeable about the gardens, plants and history of this very special island.

Cost: Sharing, either in a double or twin-bedded room, is £1,700 each person (approx.), and for a single room, (double room with single occupancy), is £1,950 (approx.).

Those of you who have travelled with us before know that our aim is to give you all an enjoyable, fun, and informative time. Our planning is based on personal research, and recommendations, and we always offer something a bit different as well as visiting the key gardens/places.

Please tell us as soon as possible if you would like to join us, so we can finalise our reservations etc. and flights asap.  We look forward to hearing from you – please CONTACT US
