Estalagem da Ponta do Sol has a varied and specialized cultural programme that merges the local community with its guests in carefully selected events, and is already widely recognized as a valuable cultural institution.
Because the hotel is built on different levels our guests can choose to participate or not in the events without being disturbed.
It is the most important experimental digital festival of Portugal, co - organized by the hotel and two other cultural institutions. The concerts happen in the Arts Center Casa das Mudas in the village of Calheta (10 minutes driving from the hotel), and the after- sessions take place in the hotel, where the artists mingle with the public in a more relaxed environment, with mini - concerts, workshops and live djs.
The Madeira Micro International Film Festival is a festival of indie and experimental films, that happens in an (almost 100 years old) Art Deco cinema, located in the village of Ponta do Sol, just in front of the hotel. The festival is organized by the hotel in partnership with the production company Digital In Berlin.
L - Concerts
A unique event organized by Estalagem da Ponta do Sol, once a week for several months , mainly in the summer. The concerts take place in the main garden of the hotel. These are small and intimate concerts with the participation of very good national and international artists. These concerts are very much sought after by the local community, who has access to them through a guest list, thus originating a mixed and harmonious atmosphere between our guests and the local population.
