PORTUGAL

Portugal, officially the Portuguese Republic, is a unitary semi-presidential republic. It is located in South-Western Europe, on the Iberian Peninsula, and it is the westernmost country of mainland Europe, being bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west and south and by Spain to the north and east. Aside from continental Portugal, the Portuguese Republic holds sovereignty over the Atlantic archipelagos of Azores and Madeira, which are autonomous regions of Portugal. The country is named after its second largest city, Porto, whose Latin name was Portus Cale.

Tourist hotspots in Portugal are Lisbon, Algarve and Madeira, but the Portuguese government continues to promote and develop new tourist destinations, such as the Douro Valley, the island of Porto Santo, and Alentejo. Lisbon is, after Barcelona, the European city which attracts the most tourists.

When to go:
Portugal has a typically Mediterranean climate, characterised by hot, dry summers, and cool, wet winters. The southern coastal region of the Algarve is more temperate than inland regions. The best time to visit Portugal is during spring and autumn, when the weather is warm and fine, and there arent too many tourists around. However, summer is the high season, and is probably when the ocean is at its most appealing.

Vidamar Resorts Madeira

Vidamar Resorts Madeira
The Vidamar Resorts Madeira (previously the CS Madeira Atlantic Resort and Sea Spa) is a glittering jewel of a hotel - its clean and contemporary fascia and décor give it a very prestigious look and feel. Situated on the West side of Funchal, the island's capital, it gives easy access to the fabulous city, and from there, the Old Town in the East - where you'll find so many of the city's best attractions.

As you would expect of one of Madeira's foremost hotels, picturesque ocean views are abundant. Just step into the beautiful hotel gardens and you can look straight out to sea.

Funchal looks like one of the world's foremost garden paradises - and it's well within reach of us Europeans. So isn't it wonderful that hotels like the Vidamar Resorts Madeira manage to maintain such impossibly high standards? One might think it would be impossible to match those views, or that staying in any hotel would feel like shutting yourself from all the beauty out there. That's certainly not the case at the Vidamar Resorts Madeira.

This is a light, airy and open hotel and totally given over to your comfort. Rooms are truly luxurious and have private bathrooms, as well as fabulous balconies overlooking the gardens. Featuring cable TV, phone, minibar and more, you'll have all the facilities you need.

Holidaymakers to Madeira will certainly have ample opportunities to swim - and the Vidamar Resorts Madeira provides some of the best. You can choose from a superb indoor seawater pool and a dazzling array of four outdoor pools, as well as the amazing Vidamar Club Spa facility. Not to mention the ocean itself - easily accessed from the hotel.

Sporty types are similarly well catered for with a variety of seasonal watersports activities, squash, tennis and fitness centre. The hotel also provides a Teen's club, providing a wide range of activities including computer games, volleyball, diving lessons, aquatic polo, and more.
