The Benefits

Known as the “island of eternal springMadeira’s subtropical climate makes it a great destination to visit all year round. Given Madeira’s diverse landscape, it has quite dramatic micro-climates which means that you are never far away from sunshine, wherever you are on the island.

If somebody had told me 20 years ago that at the age of 60 I would be playing competitive football, I would have laughed at them. Here I am living the dream with a gang of new friends.
