Encosta Cabo Girão is part of the Holiday Property Bond portfolio offering exclusive access to over 1,400 properties to its 42,000 investors across more than 30 locations. You can find out more about Encosta Cabo Girão below, but first a brief explanation about the Holiday Property Bond.

A. How can I holiday better?

Invest from £5,000 in the Holiday Property Bond for exclusive access to a portfolio of over 1,400 top quality villas, cottages and apartments in over 30 locations across the UK and Europe. For each £1 invested you will receive one Holiday Point each year which you can use to book the properties. And when staying in them you do not pay a commercial rent, just a no-profit user charge covering actual running, maintenance and refurbishment costs. This charge is level throughout the year so there are no high season premiums. For a studio for two the charge averages about £300 a week, for a two bedroom property sleeping up to six around £460 a week. And there are larger properties available. This no-profit user charge is only payable when you want to go on holiday. Your only ongoing commitment is a quarterly fee of around £30 – that is around £120 a year.

B. Will there be more properties in the future?

As we attract more investors the more properties we will add to the portfolio – increasing your holiday choice still further.

C. How long can I holiday with HPB?

For life if you wish – the holiday benefits last as long as you hold the Bond. In due course you can pass it and the holiday benefits to your children and grandchildren, as many of our earlier investors have already done. If, however, at some point you and your family no longer wish to holiday with us you can surrender your Bond back to the company after two years or more (subject to deferral in exceptional circumstances). You will not get back the full amount you invested, although we would hope that you will have had some wonderful holidays. What you do get back will reflect initial charges (25%) taken before your money is invested in the HPB fund of holiday properties and securities. The fund itself also pays annual charges of around 2.5% and other overheads. The value of the fund’s properties and securities can also go up or down and so, like most investments, your capital is at risk.

More about Encosta Cabo Girão

Encosta Cabo Girão in Madeira is a delightful, fully serviced private resort of well-appointed holiday villas and apartments situated atop one of Europe's highest sea cliffs. It is located some eight miles from Funchal, the island's capital, and enjoys panoramic views across the valley to the capital and out to sea.

Nothing quite compares with Madeira when it comes to fantastic scenery and spectacular views. Here, Laurisilva rainforest and distinctive hilltop houses give way to verdant terraced ravines, and thence to the azure blue waters of the Atlantic. In fact, this beautiful Portuguese island offers the best of all worlds: enchanting countryside, temperate climate and a lavish helping of history and culture.

If you wish, you can spend days relishing the stunning natural beauty of the island. Here you'll find absolute peace in parks and stunning gardens, gentle levada walks and delightful villages that appear unchanged in decades. Yet the capital, Funchal, is modern and lively, with countless restaurants; six cinemas; lidos and water parks; superb shopping; markets, museums and more.

With a luxury holiday in Madeira you can enjoy all of this plus the many amenities on offer including a swimming pool, pool bar, restaurant, spa centre and much more.

Visit the village Winston Churchill painted

Winston Churchill was a big fan of Madeira and particularly enjoyed going there to relax and paint the wonderful scenery. Camâra de Lobos was one of his favourite villages to capture, and it's easy to see why; it's so picturesque. There are many sites of interest here, from the beautiful bay to the Pico da Torre peak and Bocca dos Namorados viewing point – so bring the hiking boots along!

Enjoy a levada walk

Levada, or mini-canals, make for great walking trails. They criss-cross Madeira's mountains, and there are a variety of routes to choose from – travel through tunnels, under waterfalls and through forested mountains. These walks really are one of the best ways to experience Madeira.

Celebrate a festival

No matter what your passion is, there's a festival celebrating it in Madeira. Throughout the year, expect to see special events focusing on food, flowers, music, fireworks and more. No matter what season you visit the island in, the locals will be celebrating something!

Learn more about Madeira's natural history

Want to know more about how the Madeiran Archipelago was formed? Then visit the Volcanism Centre, which recreates the evolution of the area's caves and the volcanic eruptions that happened here. Make sure you see some caves in person too – Sâo Vicente's are famous for its lava accumulations and stalactites. The 700m underground walk really is fascinating.

Admire more than 2,500 exotic plants at the Monte Palace Gardens

The Monte Palace Gardens is one of Madeira's most popular attractions. Covering an area of more than 70,000m², the garden boasts in excess of 2,500 exotic plants from across the world. The colour and beauty of this space really will impress you.

Once you've explored the Gardens, you can take the Monte toboggan ride down towards Funchal's city centre.
