Holiday in Madeira: from Peter Thomson on 2002-04-21

Just got back from an excellent holiday in Madeira - walking mostly.

Found that the food in the little bars in Funchal where they serve the locals is nearly all gluten-free anyway - if you avoid the bread.
Ate extremely well for the week and no mistakes.

The paradise gardens tearoom on the main levada bakes fresh gluten-free biscuits.

Any one able to recommend an hotel
