We stayed at this wonderful accommodation in May this year and were so warmly welcomed by Abel and Teresa who spoilt us with their generosity, fruit and veg from their beautiful gardens, and many other things left for us on arrival, we shall definitely return.
Like all the other reviewers we were delighted with this place. It felt like we were in our own park, sitting in the gardens on the terrace. Being greeted with the beautifully laid table with fresh bread and all the other goodies got us off to a perfect start. The location was great - 2mins from a fantastic bakery and supermarket, a 20min walk into town and a 7 Euro cab back up the very steep hill! The fresh eggs, fruit and vegetables provided were the icing on the cake. Highly recommended.
The delightful Quinta was a perfect place to stay in Funchal. It had everything you need and more. The hospitality extended by Abel, Teresa and family was unbelievable including the fruit, vegetables and groceries supplied.
The view from the terrace across the marina was stunning.
What a beautiful house and such lovely people!
Teresa and Abel welcomed us, after seamlessly booking through TripAdvisor with Edgar. We parked in the carport and were lead through the most beautiful, and very private, vegetable garden and up to the house. The table was laid, a bottle of wine ready and some yummy bread from the bakery a short walk up the road. Sun loungers, sofa seating and a parasol all ready. We were shown all the amenities and left to our own devices, with sooooo much fruit and vegetables from the garden, for us to consume during our stay, and told we can have anything in the garden!
Unfortunately the parasol and outdoor furniture weren't used for a week of our week and a half there, due to the rain! Madeira had an unprecedented about of rain for the time of year (we always have some kind of natural impact on our holidays, tsunamis, monsoons, flooding...), but we made the most of our hire car to get out and about.
All the facilities are fantastic, the shower is awesome! Everything worked as it should and the quinta is wonderful! Teresa and Abel couldn't be more welcoming hosts, and certainly not in anyway intrusive. Abel let us see the rest of the property as well, and the development of the rest of the house, which is stunning!
Thank you for letting us stay, the Quinta was definitely the highlight of our holiday!!
An amazing location with great views over Funchal. Abel and Theresa gave us a warm welcome, left us fresh fruit and produce from their garden during our stay. They were very kind and helpful if we needed any help. The apartment was well equipped and spacious. It was really nice to pick herbs from the garden for tea or cooking. We would recommend the apartment and Mr Edgar and his family as hosts.
