About the location
Located in a quiet area of Funchal, at the south of the Portuguese island of Madeira, Quinta da Bela Vista offers guests the chance to explore the best of this stunning island. The town itself is well known as an ‘island garden’ with greenery, flowers and foliage around every corner, and pretty bougainvillea clinging to the whitewashed walls. The town’s backdrop is of hills full of forests where guests can explore with mountain biking and hiking. 

Funchal is home to a cosmopolitan feel, with upmarket shops, bars and restaurants throughout. Try some delicious local Portuguese cuisine, made using ingredients fresh from the island’s farms and fishing boats, washed down with a crisp glass of famous Madeiran wine. Those wanting to explore further can take the iconic cable car from the beach to the cliffs or hire a car and drive around the island’s small fishing villages.
