Madeira is a most beautiful island which can be explored by hiring a car, or indeed
a taxi for the day. Funchal, the capital is five minutes walk past the harbour. Most
of the island is completely unspoilt with amazing walks and drives through the volcanic
mountains - and no kiss me quick hats! Each season is considered “high” and virtually
any season the island looks different with some lovely flowers lining the roads.

We have three consecutive Timeshare, Gold Crown weeks in Funchal, Madeira. For
those who are not familiar with RCI this is equivalent to a 5* hotel. Two weeks are
at the Madeira Regency and the third week is at the Pestana Miramar just opposite
the famous Reids Palace where Winston Churchill spent so much of his free time.
The weeks can be those below, or we can bank them with RCI to have any other period,
if that is preferred, but this will involve an extra fee to RCI. Weeks are available
