My husband and I are thinking of visiting Madeira from Oct 1st-8th. I must admit that we don't know an awful lot of Madeira, apart from that its meant to be beautiful. I am an avid amatuer photographer and love taking photos of the landscape, nature, etc.
We really just want a week of chilling out though. We aren't in to drinking or partying, but do enjoy good, fresh food.
Do you think that a week is long enough? Where is the best place to stay? Will there be enough activities to keep us entertained? Should we look at hiring a car?
Any tips or advice on excusions, the best area to base ourselves in or info on the weather at this time of year would be greatly appreciated.
