On the beautiful Portuguese island of Madeira, laurisilva rainforest and distinctive hilltop houses give way to verdant terraced ravines, and thence to the azure blue waters of the Atlantic. The Bond’s fully serviced holiday village of Encosta Cabo Girão is situated atop one of Europe’s highest sea cliffs – some 11 miles from Funchal – and enjoys panoramic views across the valley to the capital and out to sea.
Madeira is just one of 30 glorious UK and European locations that you and your family could enjoy - rent free for life - as investors in the Holiday Property Bond.
The "How HPB works" section below explains in detail how the Bond works. To find out more about Madeira, the other 29 locations - and how the Holiday Property Bond could transform your holidays forever - visit www.hpb.co.uk.
Madeira offers the best of all worlds: enchanting countryside, temperate climate… and more than its share of history and culture.
This being a volcanic island, there are many physical similarities with largely unspoilt La Gomera. Yet the capital, Funchal, is modern and well-served, with restaurants aplenty; six cinemas; lidos and water parks; superb shopping; markets, museums and more.
Beyond the city limits, however, you'll find absolute peace: parks and stunning gardens, gentle levada walks and delightful villages that appear unchanged in decades.
Having your own vehicle allows you to explore the island on your own terms. But it's by no means necessary - thanks to the programme of excursions that manager Gouveia and the team, offer throughout the week.
A detailed list of the many accompanied day- and half-day trips is available at www.hpbtravel.co.uk.
