Quinta da Boa Esperança

Link to Madeira-Island.com


The Quinta is in a position that can be quite envied by many other local and close accommodations. It is located close to the sea front, the city centre and the Lido swimming pool area, but just far away enough to avoid the "tourist-centric" areas and the busy streets the package tourism hotels and restaurants are located in.

Indeed the road in which the Quinta is situated is a narrow and colourful road that gets very little traffic. There is a football stadium - about 300 metres away - but because of the angle of the hill behind the house any noise from a football match is localised and sent off in the opposite direction. The villa faces south (towards the ocean) and the swimming pool has sunlight for nearly all the day.

Please see our location on a small map below. It is clear that the Quinta is in close proximity to the centre of Funchal and many of its other facilities, including the Quinta Magnolia Gardens (where tennis can be enjoyed) and the world famous Reid's Palace Hotel (great for a tea break). The harbour is in walking distance and the easy traffic means getting about by car from this position is enjoyable and quick. There are many restaurants, snack bars, and supermarkets nearby. Ten minutes walk in either a westerly or easterly direction and you will find a variety of international and local restaurants. Night clubs and bars are also in walking distance. So too all the major facilities of the resort hotels: massage, hydrotherapy, gymnasiums, health centres, live music, and local arts and crafts. A taxi ride from the city centre to the villa should not be more than € 4,00 Euros one way.

Please note that unexpected arrivals or guests enquiring in person at the Quinta as to availability withour prior contact by email or telephone will NOT be received. Please use our bookings form to make any enquiries.
