Making the most of Madeira Literary Festival
If you’re planning to attend the literary festival in April, you’ll find that this is a wonderful month to be in Madeira and to enjoy the stunning scenery of this North Atlantic Island. Although Madeira has a warm climate and is a sun haven for the vast majority of the year, spring in Madeira is one of the most pleasant seasons of all. This is partly due to the fact that the temperatures haven’t reached the searing highs of the summer months. However, although the chances of rain are fairly slim, it’s worth bringing a waterproof with you and plenty of layers as it can still get a bit chilly once the sun sets.
