"Old-fashioned charm, wild mountains and relaxed inhabitants" are Madeira's calling cards, according to The Daily Telegraph, while World Travel Guide simply calls it "Portugal's most beautiful island". Single travellers can explore this Atlantic outpost from £745 per person.
Saving up to £250 on the original price, the deal includes return flights to Funchal with 20kg of luggage and seven nights' accommodation in a Garden View Room at the 5-star Pestana Casino Park with daily breakfast and dinner.

A 2-minute drive from the hotel, Funchal harbour is described by World Travel Guide as "one of the most spectacular bays in the world, rivalling even Rio de Janeiro's harbour".
