One doesn't stay at the Quinta das Vinhas to enjoy the city of Funchal, as the establishment is totally secluded in the heights of Madeira. However, one chooses this establishment for its charm and quiet setting. This former private residence has long been in the hands of the same family and is totally lost among the vineyards. The place exudes serenity and peace. The main house was restored and retains some of its past features.
