Portugal » Ribeira Brava
Pousada dos Vinhaticos is perfect for those who want to discover the island by car. This is also a very pleasant stop-over for those have come to walk the Levadas, which are walking trails along the maintenance paths of mini-canals. Although the Levadas were primarily constructed to bring water from the north to the south side of the Island, they are just as important for tourists and local people alike who want to enjoy incredible breathtaking scenery. The levadas cover a total distance of 2500 km, and date back to as far as the early 16th century. Most rooms are decorated in a rustic way with functional furniture. Most rooms have incredible views over the valleys below and surrounding mountains. They offer a small cosy restaurant where you can eat typical Madeira dishes such as "Espetada" or potato-bread with garlic while watching the magnificent views this unique hotel has to offer. The lobby is very small in size.
