I was lucky to meet up with Ari and Anita Montonen, before they left their second home of Madeira, and returned to their home in Finland for the summer.

Authors of Madeira in a Nutshell, Ari and Anita have put together a very impressive guide to our beautiful island.

Madeira in a Nutshell was first printed in Finnish in December 2012, aiming only to the Finnish visitors to the island, the book was such a success they were asked if they could translate it to English so it could be put out to a wider choice of visitor, so with a lot of hard work and translation, in December 2015 the book was launched in English.

The guide covers every part of the island and its content is laid out in a very easy way, so you can find content easy.

The book covers so much, a good to know section, getting around Madeira, travelling, arriving and living in Madeira, Culture and much much more. The book literally covers everything in Madeira.

The book is available on Amazon or Troubador for 20.00 UK pounds.

In Madeira you will find it in many souvenir shops and kiosks, also in many hotels and Pingo Doce supermarkets, from 20.00 euros, but anything up to 30.00 euros.


I have a great offer for you all, I can sell the book for the low price of 20.00 euros, with 5.00 euros of this price going to my Animal Charity on each book sold. so you will have a great book of Madeira with all the information you need, plus helping the unwanted and stray animals on the island.

For this offer I will need at least 20 orders and the book can be collected from me in Madeira, or arranged to have it delivered to you on the island. I can also post to Europe for an extra cost of 5.00 euros, this is a discounted shipping rate.
