We are returning to the island for a couple of weeks over Christmas and New Year. My wife's mobility has deteriorated and we might need the use of a wheelchair and was wondering if anyone knows of somewhere near the Zona Velha where you can hire a wheelchair? Hopefully we won't need one but just in case,
I did some research and came across a couple of links that may prove useful for people with mobility problems when in Madeira.
This site can hire out wheelchairs etc and will deliver/collect from the hotel
This site does tours for wheelchair users etc
Maurice, we stayed for 7 weeks at the Hotel Porto Santo Maria over Xmas and New Years.
There was a man with a wheelchair that he had rented in Funchal and it was brilliant and he got details from reception in the hotel. His wife said it made all the difference to their holiday, in fact he went sailing ahead of them!
As I have bad mobility I feel for your wife. Enjoy your hols.
We are looking forward to being back. The doctors have come up with something so we are hoping that helps by the time we get there. We like to go out and about on the buses hopefully she will be able to manage.
