The Vine Hotel, Funchal: save up to £170pp at this modern boutique hotel in marvellous Madeira
Madeira, known as the "Pearl of the Atlantic", is another great destination for a late summer or early autumn break, thanks to its balmy subtropical climate. The average temperature rarely falls below the mid 20s and there's at least nine hours of sunshine every day. Our mini-break offer includes a stay at The Vine, a modern boutique hotel in the heart of Funchal, Madeira's capital. With a fabulous rooftop pool, which has 360-degree views over the bay and port, it takes its name - and overall theme - from the island's famous fortified wine. Local designer Nini Andrade Silva has created the hotel's stunning interiors, which mix volcanic rock with rich purple fabrics and furniture designed to resemble twisted vines.
Plus each of the four floors of the hotel represents a different season in the life cycle of the grape. Food - and wine of course - take centre stage, and Uva (grape in Portuguese), the restaurant and wine bar, is a foodie's dream. Even the spa offers vinotherapy treatments, including a red wine bath with antioxidant wine extracts. Outside the hotel there are beautiful botanical gardens to explore, walks along the levadas - Madeira's famous network of canals - or museums including Museu CR7, which is entirely dedicated to (and owned by) Cristiano Ronaldo, who was born in the city!
