  • Wonderful place to feel traditional spirit of Madeira. Absolutely magnificent embroideries (pictures, pillows etc.), a wide range of table wears and beddings. Very helpful and friendly staff eager to help each customer. Definitely worth visiting.
  • Bordal is the best shop for discovering the Madeira embroidery made on the island. The works are displayed nicely and there were lots of different works to choose and are well organized so you can find them. The clerks were very helpful in finding the different pieces and making suggestions for purchase without a hard sell (like some other shops). Prices reflect the amount of work put into each item and are comparable with other shops. There is a historical display of how the Madeira embroidery patterns are created. The clerks can describe the process as well. Many books of old embroidery patterns are part of the display.
  • Exquisite household fabrics, clothes and a wonderful range of embroidered items for babies. All hand made and finished. Expensive until you see the work that goes into producing the products. Worth a visit just to see the standard of work and skill. Helpful assistants. Workshops held on Thursdays so you can learn some of the skills.
  • Wonderful place. Submitted by diversified local needlework: tablecloths, underwear, clothing, embroidery, and more, all very beautiful, want to buy everything. The second of their shop is located opposite the Casino on Av. Do Infante, in front of the entrance sits a woman in traditional dress and is engaged in needlework. A year after a trip to Madeira wanted to buy another embroidery (beautiful paintings that itself vyshivaesh wool), contacted the shop through the site, the staff were so friendly and kind enough to even call back, clarified that there are available, sent additional options to choose from, all neatly and nicely packaged for shipment. Many thanks Bordal and his staff! And highly recommend to visit, to feel the spirit and flavor of Madeira and its traditional arts!

Where to stay in Funchal

Funchal's array of accommodation presents an interesting conundrum, as many of the upscale hotels and budget options lie outside the city center. If you opt to stay there, you'll need transportation in order to best explore the city. Luxury hotels touting outdoor pools, spas, exclusive restaurants, and other amenities certainly dazzle with their locations along the coast. To get a taste of authentic Madeira culture and history, try staying at one of the
