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.
