Magical place in the North Atlantic Ocean
A little less than two hours flight from Lisbon, north of the Atlantic Ocean is Madeira Island, awarded as “Best Island Destination in the World” by the World Travel Awards, deposing the equally beautiful islands of Bali and Maldives. The island of Madeira is one of the few in the world that offers the excitement and vibrancy of life on an island and, at the same time, the bustle of a city on a continental territory.

Booming real estate market
Funchal, the capital of the island, is the place to be. The city is not only the main tourist center, but also the political, economic and academic center where all higher education institutions, including the University of Madeira, are located.
With a population of 105,795 inhabitants (data from 2021), Funchal is the main city of Madeira and has about 42% of the population of the entire archipelago.
Given the population density, the real estate market of Funchal is home mostly to apartments and villas, leaving aside tourist developments whose sector has a strong influence on the economic development of the region.
