The Island of Madeira

An enchanting natural paradise

Known for its delicious wine and heavenly climate, Madeira is a highly anticipated new addition to our schedule. Located on the northwest coast of Africa, the Portuguese island boasts dramatic and wildly unique landscapes; think rugged volcanic cliffs, rich greenery, pebbled beaches, and enchanted settlements along the Fajã River. With gorgeous restaurants and boutiques overlooking the busy harbor, it makes sense that this island was a vacation favorite for the like of Winston Churchill and Gregory Peck.

Madeira Housing

Co-living at its best

This time, we’ll be setting up shop in Ponta do Sol, a 500-year-old town right on the waters edge. Your room comes with ocean views, desk and en-suite bathroom, plus you’ll find a communal workspace, lounge, kitchen and laundry room within the building. This little corner of the island, surrounded by rugged cliffs and banana plantations, has recently been repurposed as a digital nomad village. Expect easy access to surf beaches, mountain hikes, and cute Portuguese cafés.


Work, meet, and collaborate

Time to talk about some perks of where we will work:

  1. The wifi is fast and reliable. No worries here.
  2. The newly renovated working space is in the same building as our accommodations. Your commute just became a roll out of bed.
  3. Open the French doors to enjoy that cool ocean breeze while you work — ’cause you’re just steps from the beach!

We’ve got everything you need to be productive: nice chairs and desks, a well lit space, and more.

Madeira Highlights

Just a few reasons you'll fall for this destination​


Nature Lover's Paradise

Come explore the island of natural wonders and eternal spring. Madeira is known for its natural diversity, magnificent views, dramatic waterfalls, misty valleys, and UNESCO forests of laurels. It’s also a great spot for divers, hikers, ultra runners, surfers, paragliders, …and the list goes on!


Flower Power

The annual flower festival brings the whole island to bloom, literally, with carpets of flowers covering streets in the capital, Funchal. Although we won’t be there for it there’s no escaping the lush garden of flower gods on every step.


Wine, anyone?

Ever heard of Madeira wine? This local specialty is a fortified type of wine, ranging from dry to sweet, has a long history and great appeal. There’s a great story behind it, too, dating back to the Age of Exploration. History and wine tasting? Sim, por favor!


Cape of the Sun

Ponta do Sol is the new emerging hub connecting locals and international community, with events, workshops, and growing start-up scene, and it’s the hottest place on the island (pun intended). The picturesque coastal town sports a pebbled beach and historical centre, all embraced by breathtaking landscapes. Fairy-tale sunsets guaranteed!


Festival Island

There’s always something going on on this tiny island. Festival that could compete with Rio? Celebrate local handicrafts and embroidery, rum and wine, fruit and sugar cane! There’s even an onion festival but we get that it’s not for everyone. Madeira is also famous for its fireworks show (Guinness record here!), 24hr dancing parade or cider and trout festival. Do we have to go on?


Small island, big food ride

We can’t list all the yummy local dishes here (would be a loooong list) but we’ll do our best to try them all! We’re not leaving the island without tasting the Black Scabbard fish fillet, the traditional “espetada”, marinated beef cubes barbecued on a laurel skewer, accompanied by “bolo do caco”, madeiran bread served with garlic butter, and topping it off with the most popular dessert of the locals - queijadas.
