    Located on one of the hills outside Funchal, 3 mi from the town and 15.5 mi from the airport. Allow 15 minutes to get to the town centre and 30 minutes to reach the airport.

    Accommodation 8.30 /10

    The Quinta Das Vistas Palace Garden is an intimate hotel. It has only 71 rooms: a presidential suite, 4 suites, 3 junior suites and 63 rooms. You can reach them by lift or via a majestic staircase that would not look out of place in a huge palace. Background music plays quietly in the corridors. The colours of the rooms are based around different shades of beige, with an oak parquet floor and Wilton fitted carpets. As a welcoming gift, a small bottle of Madeira wine and a delicious honey cake await you here. All the rooms have a balcony offering one of three views: the garden, the mountains or the sea. Note that the rooms on the ground floor have direct access to the garden. The soft light of the bedside lamps will immediately help acclimatise you to the relaxing atmosphere. All the amenities are provided: cable TV, air conditioning, a full mini-bar, safe (free) and a telephone with a direct external line. In the bathroom, you will find hospitality products and a bath equipped with a shower head and an alarm in case of an accident, as well as a hair-dryer hidden in a desk drawer, bathrobes and a magnifying mirror. Note that room service is available during the day till 11.00 pm.

    Overview 8.50 /10

    The main entrance of the hotel is through an immense wrought-iron gate. A small pond that two swans have made their home is at the top of the stony hillside typical of Madeira, surrounded by a luxuriant garden. The reception area is reached through big revolving glass doors. You will find yourself in a reception area containing two varnished wooden desks, and a very warm welcome. You cannot help but feel the tranquillity of the surroundings in the spacious marble hall. Comfortable, elegant armchairs are arranged here and there. The decoration is based around different shades of beige. After passing through the Albatros Piano Bar and its leather sofas, you will find yourself in the dining room. A covered winter garden with a view of the sky is located down below the reception area. Its black and white decor makes for a more modern style. On the ground floor is a beautiful heated infinity swimming pool, half indoor and half outdoor. Overlooked by a luxuriant garden, its rounded shapes allow it to blend in perfectly with it surroundings. You can therefore choose to sit on the wicker deckchairs either inside and outside (beach towels are provided). The added value of this hotel is that it has its own spa. This offers everything: a jet shower, whirlpool bath, sauna, hammam, Turkish bath, ice room, etc. The epitome of tranquillity, the centre has two massage rooms and a comfortable relaxation room. There are a number of treatments on offer: from a simple facial massage to reflexology and aromatherapy. Manicures and pedicures are also available.

    The main house has been entirely restored to accommodate "La Belle Terrasse", the hotel's gourmet restaurant. It is divided into three parts: the covered part, the outdoor terrace and the winter garden. All the spaces offer an unbeatable view of the Funchal heights and the Atlantic Ocean. The laid tables are covered with white tablecloths and decorated with flowers. There is room to seat 130 guests. The three daily meals are served there. A gourmet buffet dinner is served twice a week. You can choose from a selection of Madeiran and Mediterranean specialities. At lunch time, you can also eat by the swimming pool, whose menu consists of light dishes.However, the most important time of day is still Tea Time. Next to the bar, you can try a selection of home-made pastries, small sandwiches and various kinds of cakes. Twenty-four types of tea are served. Expect to pay around £13 to enjoy this lavish spread.

    To know

    The Quinta Das Vistas Palace Garden certainly merits its name: "vistas" in Portuguese means "view". This establishment, a member of the "Charming Hotels Madeira" group, offers a 360° view of the majestic mountains of Madeira, the town of Funchal and the Atlantic Ocean. Due to its location and its verdant setting, it is the jewel in the crown of the "Charming Hotels Madeira" group. Five other hotels belong to this group, three of which are in Funchal: the Quinta do Monte Panoramic Gardens, the Quinta do Estreito Vintage House and the Quinta Perestrello Heritage House. It is worth noting that you are free to enjoy the other restaurants of the group at no extra charge. Originally, this Quinta was a hospital. Therefore, it looks more like a real hotel than a stately period residence. It was completely renovated before opening in May 2002, in order to transform it into a place for total relaxation. As it is surrounded by 3 acres of gardens and trees a hundred years old, it is located outside the town. Curious guests can satisfy their desires by taking the shuttle from the hotel, which makes the trip to the town centre six times a day.
