Destination: Madeira

Posted in: Arena Destinations, Elite Fuerteventura Club News, General, Members, The Harbour Club News- Jan 21, 2014 No Comments

Madeira is a Portuguese island about 250 miles north of Tenerife in the north Atlantic Ocean claimed by sailors in the service of Infante D. Henrique in 1419, and settled after 1420. It has an extensive natural reserve, the most famous being the prehistoric and exuberant Laurissilva (laurel) forest (similar to those found in Tenerife and La Gomera), which has been recognised by UNESCO as part of the World Natural Heritage.

Nature, the temperate climate, the unique waterfalls, the local traditions, the culture, the cuisine, water and mountain sports, immense gardens and flowers, popular festivals, embroidery and Madeira wine, and the cosmopolitan city of Funchal make Madeira a multi-faceted destination.

Take advantage of your Arena Destinations membership and stay at the beautiful resort The Residence @ Porto Mare in order to visit this beautiful island.

The Residence occupies a wing of the Vila Porto Mare resort and guests can enjoy the use of all its facilities. We have available a one bedroom unit, which, like all the units are carefully furnished and fully equipped with guest’s comfort in mind and decorated with a touch of exoticism. The Residence apartments combine views over the ocean with tropical gardens.

The Residence is located in Funchal within  the Vila Porto Mare resort which offers facilities common to three outlets – Suite Hotel Eden Mar, Hotel Porto Mare and The Residence; four restaurants, six bars, one ice-cream parlour, five pools, SPA, sports and children’s facilities.

The resort’s botanical gardens represent one of the most interesting in Madeira with 20,000m2 of subtropical gardens and surroundings,  more than 470 unique botanical species, identified with individual explanatory tags. Here you will be literally enveloped by some of the flora that is so abundant in Madeira…

We have availability for one week from the 24th March 2014  – only available to full members at present! Now booked.
