4****Pestana Garden Village Resort

Known as the ‘floating garden’, the sub-tropical Island of Madeira is home to many wonderful varieties of plants and flowers, some of which are unique to its shores. An island in flower the whole year round, Madeira is one of Europe's most sought-after tourist destinations, an archipelago of fascinating natural beauty and favorable climate. Situated in the Atlantic Ocean approximately 400 miles west of the African coast, Madeira is 36 miles in length and 14 miles wide with a population of around 300,000 about half of which live in the capital city Funchal. Landscape and climate combine on Madeira to create an island of all-year-round appeal. In winter, while northern Europe shivers, southerly Madeira is basking in balmy sunshine. In summer, while searing heat turns much of southern Europe arid, the island remains a green semitropical paradise, the air heavy with the scent of flowers.

Portuguese is the main language, but English is widely spoken by the friendly locals. The warm land temperatures of 21°C (June average) ensure there is always an abundance of tropical plants in flower. The pace of life on Madeira is much slower than continental Europe - Madeira is best described as exceptional and you are unlikely ever to visit another destination that is comparable.
