The Portuguese island of Madeira is one of the hidden gems of Europe. While it may not get as much press at Spain or Portugal itself, Madeira is shaping up to be the hottest holiday destination in Europe. The Pestana Palms is set amid lush well established gardens and the main hotel is an historic manor house that has been restored to its former glory. The entire resort has exceptional views of the bay of Funchal and the towering cliffs that make up the coastline.
The apartments at the Pestana Palms have all been decorated in muted tranquil colours so as not to detract from the magnificent surroundings. Guests can dine at the Flor do Mal restaurant with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean or indulge in scrumptious light snacks and high tea at the Vila Lido Tea Room. Amenities at the resort include an outdoor pool with views of the bay, a well appointed fitness centre and spa and the unique opportunity to learn to SCUBA dive at the dive centre training school at the resort.
Each of the 66 studio apartments has a comfortable living and dining area and a well equipped kitchenette and there are a select number of apartments that sleep four and six people in style and comfort. The Pestana Palms is less than 2 km from the centre of the Funchal and you need to spend a couple of days exploring the city and discovering the very best shopping districts, restaurants and museums that are dotted throughout the town. The highlight of a holiday in Funchal in the spring is the Flower Festival with parades and colourfully decorated floats, as well as the 'Wall of Hope' found in the Largo do Colegio in the city centre.
