Reviewed 28 May 2017

We had a very relaxed 10 day stay at Quinta das Vinhas. It is a nice and sunny place, and because it is location some hundreds of meters above sea level it is warm during the day and cool during the night. Staff is very friendly. Meals are very good and tasty.

A choice is offered of hotel style accommodation or a nearby cottage. Our room was clean and comfy, staff were attentive. The breakfasts are buffet style which works very well. Evening meals are taken around one large table thus a mix of nationalities add to the atmosphere. Staff speak English and one or two also speak German. Evening meals are also available and highly recommended in nearby Prazeres. All together a quiet and pleasant area. The nearby hills offer good walking.

We came home unsure what the Quinta was trying to be...a four star hotel, or a walking centre...
We went in February to find some sun,and enjoyed some good walks in the levadas of Madeira. The vineyard Quinta is well positioned for this, and is also close to the west coast, but is not alone in this.
We used one of the cottages in the grounds which gave freedom to come and go, and mix self catering with visiting local restaurants, but we were disappointed with the basic quality of the accommodation...ok to return to after a strenuous walk, but we have found some British youth hostels more comfortable.
If you are going in the winter, you may be as lucky as we were with the sun, but beware those cold Atlantic winds...the cottages are not draught proof!
Plusses were the friendliness of staff; the ability to light a fire (wood is for sale)and the very hot water for baths!
Warning: if staying in the cottages at the bottom of the site, the walk up to the main house (reception, breakfast, dining room...)is along a path with very steep sections and rough underfoot. Guests who are less mobile may find this difficult.
Some local restaurants offer excellent food including Madeiran dishes...try O Chico`s in Prazeres for its excellent cooking and warm welcome. The kitchen of the Quinta was closed for refurbishment during our visit, so we cannot comment on catering.

I was looking for a remote place. And this is what I found. No big tourism, nothing fancy. It's self catering (but with fresh bread rolls hanging on the door every morning and a starter kit in the kitchenette, you can also join the dinner) but very homely. Gorgeous little cottages in an old wine yard. Lovely hosts (thanks Yvonne) and an easy and cozy place to start your everyday activities. I can definitely recommend this place.

Friendly staff, all spoke English and quite a few German. Rooms and grounds are clean and well maintained. Dinners in the garden were excellent with great wine list. Pool was small, but large enough for some laps.
