The Pestana Churchill Bay overlooks the bay of Câmara de Lobos, a picturesque Madeiran fishing city a few minutes away from Funchal. Now occupying the former Council Chamber and fish wholesale market buildings located on the seafront, the Pestana Churchill Bay was the very first hotel to open in the historic centre of Câmara de Lobos.
The backdrop of the city’s white houses, green mountains and deep blue waters of the Atlantic is the ideal setting for a holiday in this charming accommodation.
With 57 rooms inspired by the paintings of Winston Churchill, a restaurant offering regional flavours, with a bar and esplanade, a panoramic rooftop pool and a sauna, the Pestana Churchill Bay offers all the conditions for a relaxing holiday in a genuine locality of Madeira.
Next to the reception, open to the public, there is a bar and lounge, superiorly decorated, with an outdoor terrace two steps from the water, where poncha and other traditional drinks are served, in the company of Churchill in full-size bronze sculpture, a hotspot for lovers of selfies.
Pestana Churchill Bay
Accessible from Funchal / Lido in a pleasant walking promenade by the sea and 25 km from the airport, Câmara de Lobos is a city renowned for its traditional cuisine and natural beauty. Once a fishing and agricultural town, today tourism is the main industry. The city owes its name to the large population of sea lions found by Gonçalves Zarco in 1419, when the bay was first discovered.
