Dear Andy and Lucy,

I thought i would throw this one in as i feel it just might interest you, the year round climate, easy access from Bristol, ocean front location, amazing sailing and stunning scenery etc. An adventure waiting to happen! let me know what you think?

Linking nature and the human spirit, the Quinta do Lorde Resort Marina emerges from the crystalline ocean waters of the Pearl of the Atlantic, Madeira Island, only 20 minutes from the capital - Funchal - and 10 minutes from the Madeira International Airport.The Quinta do Lorde Resort is located on the peninsula of Ponta de São Lourenço, Madeira Island.
Ponta de São Lourenço is a unique area of the island, due to its terrain and unique vegetation. It is considered one of the calling cards of the region, where the blue of the sea blends into nature on land.

Your home at Quinta do Lorde is a lifestyle investment for the present and for the future. It is a resort for sharing family moments and forging new friendships, for making discoveries and embarking on new adventures.

Placed in an unrivalled setting, there are 127 traditional-style dwellings. Both apartments and houses are available in extremely spacious variations of 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom residences.

On the balconies, stimulate your senses with the uninterrupted views over the gardens to the ocean. Quinta do Lorde is your opportunity to invest in a truly unique paradise to be enjoyed at any time of the year.

Self-sustainability and environmental management

Awaken the five senses and live with intensity all the experiences Quinta do Lorde offers you. Go to sleep contemplating the starry sky, awake to the sound of the waves and breathe in the aroma of the vegetation.

ventoinhaThe construction of Quinta do Lorde was based on the "Green Hotel" project, co-ordinated by the Regional Agency of Energy and Environment of the Autonomous Region of Madeira (AREAM) and carried out in partnership with international entities.Quinta do Lorde has invested in the full implementation of an eco-resort status, and is a truly sustainable resort, self-sufficient in water and energy.
Located in a zone of high ecological sensitivity, the resort features a carefully integrated master plan combining a cultural and architectural treatment drawing from the Island's rich history with special use of traditional local building materials.
An outdoor lighting system is used that will not upset the local coastal fauna or drown-out the night sky. The resort's generous landscaping plan will also intelligently reflect the local diversity of regional plant species.

One of the principal aspects of the sustainability of the resort is its usage of innovative renewable energy systems combined with an inherent energy efficiency designed into the buildings and systems. This is a strategy that provides high levels of comfort with low consumption, thus minimizing the environmental impact.
Quinta do Lorde uses electric sustainable vehicles for getting around within the resort and facilitates walking, guaranteeing a clean environment free of noise and motor pollution and complementing the healthy lifestyle at Quinta do Lorde, in general.
