Located in Câmara de Lobos bay, less than 10 km from Funchal, Pestana Churchill Bay, the new Pousada de Portugal in Madeira, opens its doors starting today and bookings are available from 168,00 EUROS in a Double Room with breakfast included.
The information was presented today by that hotel group, which recalls the new service of that hotel unit with “57 comfortable rooms located in the first water line and consists of two buildings framed in the volumetry of the architecture of the place and the palette of colors of the landscape contrasts between the neutral tones of typical houses, the green tones of the planted banana trees and the deep blue of the Atlantic Ocean. A landscape punctuated by the typical fishermen’s boats of the region and that maintains its unique and genuine character “.
The same note refers to the personality that visited the Region and left a mark on Câmara de Lobos with an image, painting, that ran the world from then to today. “This was the place that inspired the iconic British statesman and Nobel Prize for Literature, Winston Churchill. He visited Funchal in 1950 and chose this beautiful landscape of the bay of Câmara de Lobos to be able to portray one of his paintings. The moment was immortalized by the photograph of the author of Raul Perestello and the image crossed the world. This same painting is now displayed on the wallpaper of each room and this memory is extended through the statue that honors the charismatic presence that now designates space. “
To welcome guests, and next to the reception of the new Pousada de Portugal, “there is a bronze sculpture developed by the Madeira sculptor Martim Velosa that depicts this historic moment of the Wiston Churchill sitting on a wicker chair, painting the bay of Câmara de Lobos. At his side, there is now another wicker chair that invites those who pass by to record the moment in photography “.
The statue is installed on the terrace of the Dock Bar serving all day snacks with regional flavors, as well as regional drinks such as the poncha. The Câmara de Lobos tradition is also served at the table in the Pier One restaurant. Taken from Funchal News.
