As usual, we had a really marvellous holiday in the Porto Mare Residence. The weather was hot and sunny (particularly compared with home!), the trips in the cable car up to the Monte and Botanical Gardens and around the island were magnificent. The local cuisine in and around the hotel was enjoyed to the full. The amenities, activities and entertainment (led so capably by the incomparable, lovely Cindy and the able Pierre) were as always first rate. The good news is that we'll be coming back next year. The sad news is that our first week in our apartment in Porto Mare Residence will be our last in January 2014 . The second week in our other apartment will terminate the year after. The sad news is that we'll miss all the wonderful friends and staff (from the ever-smiling and amenable Manager, Antonio Pais, the F & B Manager Jao, the wine tastings with Paulo's excellent knowledge, and Happy Hours with the waiters, especially Roberto and waitress Andreas...all have become our friends too!) when our ten years in both apartments have come to an end. The good news is that we intend to continue coming to Vila Porto Mare every year. So no sad (or negative) news to report after all! We'll still see all our friends and this beautiful island of Madeira every year.
