Quinta da Bela Vista

Madeira, Funchal

Behind the 19th century façade of the Quinta da Bela Vista lies a hotel of great sophistication. An elegant, ancestral manor house, uniquely managed, this hotel has been in the hands of the same family since 1844 and is renowned for its first-class cuisine, personal service and warm hospitality. Situated three kilometres from Funchal town centre, in a quiet residential area and among stunning established gardens, this hotel commands wonderful panoramic views towards Funchal's amphitheatre and bay.

The Quinta's welcoming public rooms are furnished with antiques, while the luxuriously-appointed guest rooms comprise either individual suites, situated in the Manor House or traditionally furnished bedrooms, housed in the hotel's modern wing.

About the location
Funchal is Madeira's colourful hillside capital. The island's biggest draw, it’s an appealing mix of old and new that ticks the boxes for culture, nightlife and beaches. The narrow cobbled streets are dotted with interesting shops, restaurants and cafes, and at the city's heart is a towering 16th-century cathedral (remember to look up – it’s got a beautiful ceiling carved from local wood). The old town is home to bustling farmers' markets and flower markets in spring, and is fringed with a mix of parks, galleries and museums, as well as pretty botanical gardens. The marina is the best spot to spend the evenings, lined with bars that fuel a buzzing nightlife scene. If you're in need of some beach time, there are a couple of black-sand beaches that are a lovely spot for a swim.
