Wake up in a tropical banana tree forest, listening to the waves by the beach and the spring water falling down the cascade. This new Glamping site in Madeira Island is the perfect spot to relax by the hill, camping with all comfort and glamour.

The space
The story behind the project
I was 8 years old the first time I went with my grandmother to help her irrigate the banana trees in a land down the hill. I still remember how happy I was with the surroundings, even if I had to walk down the hill for 2 hours to get there through some old trails. The sound of the springs, and watching the boats down the sea was so amazing for me, that I continued to join her on the weekends.After some time my grandmother was getting too old to continue to grow on this land so it was abandoned for almost 20 years, until it happen that I came by and decided to bring it again to life.
It was in December 2008 when I started to prepare the field and begin planting the first fruit trees. In 2010 I built a small house and started buying abandoned land around to increase the property. In September 2013 the time came to rebuild the old walls people used to build to sustain the land and to be able to cultivate by the hills.It took one year until the new part of the field was ready, and it was because of this result that I decided to move forward and prepare it to provide a new experience for locals and people visiting Madeira Island.

My name is Roberto and I'm an entrepreneur from Ponta do Sol, Madeira. My friends say I'm passionate about creating new business, but I like to think that my ventures can provide new and interesting experiences for others. I left the Island to study at the university in Rome at the age of seventeen, and this experience changed my life forever. I met people from many different countries and backgrounds, some of whom I became great friends with. When I returned to Madeira Island I imagined how I could bring these friends, and new ones too, to the land I love. It wasn't until I came into possession of my grandmothers land in Anjos - Ponta do Sol, that I saw potential for a very special project, the Canto das Fontes - Madeira Island Glamping. After several years of development, the space came into its own natural beauty. I receive every guest as I would one of my old friends from Rome: with great joy and pride to show the best that this Island has to offer.
