Hotel Da Vila, Ponta do Sol, Portugal
Madeira’s rocky coasts, mountains, and terraced banana plantations inspired the decor of this boutique hotel in a 500-year-old fishing village. The influence appears in custom lamps carved from untreated driftwood, local wheat framed in lucite boxes, and slabs of gnarled lumber repurposed as coffee tables. Hiking, mountain biking, rock-climbing, paragliding and surfing are all less than a 20-minute drive away.
Cost: From $68
Don’t Miss: Sister hotel Estalagem da Ponta do Sol’s dramatic clifftop infinity pool. It’s open to all Hotel Da Vila guests.
