Estalagem da Ponta do Sol

The beautiful town is called Ponta do Sol: Point of the Sun. My friend Alice had told me that the sun shines more there than anywhere else on the floral island of Madeira. When I walked onto the beach of Ponta do Sol, I noticed a gorgeous old quinta perched on top of a cliff. With a couple of modern buildings basking in sunlight just behind it. I couldn’t resist my curiosity and it wasn’t too hot just yet, so I decided to make my way up.

Before long, I arrived at a hyper modern designer hotel. My face was red from the effort and the lady behind the counter quickly gave me a glass of water. ‘Feel free to take the lift next time around!’, she said, but I barely heard her. I gazed at the vibrant and original interior of the old building. A truly remarkable combination of the old and the new. So much jaw-droppingly gorgeous contrast! They had thought about everything: soft lounge music in the background, modern seats to enjoy the spectacular view of the old town and rugged coast, remarkable incidence of light... And then there is the heated indoor pool, steam bath and jacuzzi! I didn’t know what to say. Luckily, they had a room available because the temptation to spend a couple of days at this contemporary palace was too much to bear.

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options. 
  • Are you the main driver? Then you must meet the minimum or maximum age requirements as stated in the car rental terms and conditions, have a credit card in your name (including PIN number) and a valid driving license.
