This was our fourth stay at The Residence and it is always a treat! Our appartment is very comfortable and well equipped and has been refurbished since our last visit - floor sanded and repolished, walls painted and new TV's with wider range of programmes.
The private gardens are quiet and relaxing but also give us the opportunity to meet neighbours.
Being part of the Porto Mare complex means that there are a wide selection of activities to take part in or not as we choose. Guided visits to the gardens, the kitchens (with cookery lesson) and wine tasting are interesting and provide another opportunity to meet other guests. The regular shuttle bus into Funchal is useful but there is good transport from the end of the road anyway.
There is a good and varied programme of music in the evenings. We often choose to go out to concerts in Funchal but breakfast or dinner on our balcony watching the birds, enjoying the flowers and the sea beyond is just about as good as it gets for us.More
