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.
Like most traditional villas in Funchal, 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 to those wanting quiet surroundings, stunning views over the bay of Funchal and perfect location, where the famous Monte toboggan run ends.

Large terraces in the spacious gardens and around the pool are
ideal for sun worshippers or, should you prefer, there is plenty of

Some seven hundred kilometres west of the African coast, Madeira is a stunning mountainous emerald island, lapped by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. The first island to be discovered by the Portuguese navigators in 1419, Madeira became an important resting place on the long trip to the new world. From these humble beginnings, the holiday trade was formed and this spectacular island, which used to be the favourite place of the rich and famous, is now the preferred choice of all sorts of visitors, from those seeking year-round warm temperatures to nature lovers and sightseers, sports and active enthusiasts of all ages. Culture, history, stunning nature, a myriad of sea and land activities, added to a great foodie scene means Madeira has something for everyone. No matter where you go on the island you are rewarded by fabulous scenery, tiny villages and friendly people. With a population of over 100,000, Funchal is not only the capital, but also the heart of Madeira and home to many of the islanders. This makes it a busy, chic, cosmopolitan and fun city, full of shops, shopping centres, bars, cafés and a great variety of restaurants and entertainment; a vibrant, cosmopolitan town where historic splendour and breath-taking natural beauty combine with a thoroughly modern atmosphere.
