Holiday Rental House
This traditional Quinta, built in 1871, was restored from ruin in 1999 into an award-winning home. Benefitting from stunning views of Funchal and sea, rooms are large, light and luxurious and the surrounding gardens abundant with palm trees, camellias, scented climbers, avocado trees and dazzling bougainvillea. The house sits peacefully on the hillside on the Caminho do Monte below the famous wicker toboggan run, with breathtaking views over its own heated swimming pool to the town and bay of Funchal with sea beyond. Owner Joy, a Madeira resident for over 30 years, offers this villa and neighboring Casa Belflores (each with total privacy) to those wanting quiet surroundings, stunning views over the bay of Funchal and perfect location. You can book both together if you need 6 bedrooms! L...This traditional Quinta, built in 1871, was restored from ruin in 1999 into an award-winning home.
