Sun, colourful bougainvillea, good wine, port and high spirits - all excellent ingredients for a wonderful holiday in a villa with its own swimming pool in Portugal.
Madeira is the flower-filled sunshine island that belongs to Portugal in the Atlantic, just north of the Canary Islands. Stay in a self-catering apartment wih a swimming pool in Madeira and enjoy a sunny Portuguese experience in a sub-tropical paradise.
Self catering accommodation abroad with a swimming pool
Families take villa holidays abroad because they want wall-to-wall sunshine for the duration of the vacation. This cannot be guaranteed in the UK although renting a cottage with an indoor swimming pool at least assures of a satisfactory indoor climate and something to do despite the weather. There are long periods of good weather in Britain although it is impossible to predict far in advance and holidays tend to be booked in advance, often several months beforehand.
Any holiday that gives people the chance to exercise and enjoy swimming has to be a good thing both physically and psychologically. The more pleasures that can be included in a holiday, the more satisfied holidaymakers are with their self-catering break, irrespective of whether it is in Portugal, Madeira or elsewhere.
At one time, before the days of skin cancer scares, people would often lie for hours beside a pool acquiring the desired level of sun tan. Swimming tends to increase exposure to sun because a couple of hours can pass by quite happily without noticing. We hope that find that perfect villa with a swimming pool at home or abroad that leaves you with happy memories for years to come.
