Overview

Funchal House Rental Photos and Description

Superb Location. Bakery & Restaurants Locally & Funchal and Sea 10 min by bus.

This traditional Quinta, built in 1871, was restored from ruin in 1999 into an award-winning home. Rooms are large, light and luxurious and the surrounding gardens abundant with palm trees, camellias, scented climbers, avocado trees and dazzling bougainvillea. A conservatory entrance leads to a dignified lounge and dining area, with open log fire for winter evenings and French windows opening on to the gardens and heated pool. The kitchen/breakfast room, with laundry room behind, leads to a BBQ area and shower/WC for use after swimming or sunbathing. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms; 1 double en-suite, 1 double & 1 twin and a second bathroom. Maid service is provided by friendly Ciseltina. Owner Joy, a Madeira resident for 31 years, offers this villa and neighbouring Casa Belflores (each with total privacy) to those wanting quiet surroundings, stunning views over the bay of Funchal and perfect location, where the famous Monte toboggan run ends. You can book both together if you need 6 bedrooms!

Reasons for choosing Madeira: For nature lovers, Madeira has plenty to offer, with superb vegetation, and hundreds of subtropical plants to keep the most enthusiastic gardener occupied. Part of the island has been pronounced a World Heritage protected site, this is the area of the Laurisilva forests which are located in the Western part of the island , an area well worth exploring, especially on foot. Walking the island has become very popular with visitors who can follow long trails along the islands water courses, locally known as levadas. For golfers there are two excellent golf courses, one of which is only a ten minute drive from the house. The capital of the island is of course Funchal, a town which as well as being very attractive and spotlessly clean, has many restaurants for all tastes and budgets, and an excellent variety of individual shops, in addition to several very interesting museums.

More for your comfort and peace of mind: Owner Joy, having adopted this island as her home 30 years ago and with years of experience in the hospitality industry, offers a holiday home which probably rates as the most desirable and luxurious on Madeira. Attractive teak garden furniture with table and chairs are provided, as well as sun loungers and parasols and her gardener will be on hand to keep the pool crystal clear. Maid service is provided by cheerful and very kind maid Ciseltina, who is also responsible for changing linen and towels twice a week.

Quinta-ssentially perfect!

  • 5 of 5

A stunning quinta, sympathetically restored, and beautifully maintained.

Madeira offers everything for the discerning traveller. Short of staying at Reids you could do no better!

Traumurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Die Quinta D´Alegria ist ein traumhaft schönes, altes Herrenhaus. Wir wurden von Joy freundlich begrüßt und erhielten die genaue Wegbeschreibung zur Quinta. Die schmalen, steilen Straßen und die Einfahrt in die Garage sind eine Herausforderung. Man ahnt von der Straße aus nicht, welches Schmuckstück sich hinter den Mauer verbirgt. Der schöne Garten, das großzügige, geschmackvoll eingerichtete Haus und der Ausblick über Funchal sind einmalig.

Das Abendessen, dass wir für unseren Anreisetag bestellt hatten, war absolut köstlich - vielen Dank an Joy und Tina. Wir kommen sehr gern einmal wieder.

It was a very great time. The Place was beautiful. The House was clean and very nice. We come in the house and we become a present: A lunch box. This was a great idea. In this week the housekeeping come 3 times. It was a great Holiday. When we drive a other time to Madeira then we stay also in this house.

A wonderful, beautiful traditional house

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic, very traditional and stylish, providing all the home comforts you would need. The gardens were lovely with tremendous views over the city and out to sea and the pool was excellent, just the right temperature.

The property was immaculately clean, the welcome pack excellent and Joy the owner was very friendly and most helpful with local knowledge and information.

We plan to return this house, it was our third visit to Madeira but by far the nicest place we have stayed and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family.

We ate out every evening and all meals were excellent, a particular favourite was Gaviao Novo, Rua de Santa Maria in the Old Town.

A thoroughly enjoyable holiday in this excellent property

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a positive review, we are naturally very pleased that Quinta d’Alegria fulfilled your expectations and having said that this is your third visit to the island, we guess you may decide to return yet again in the future ; Madeira is like that, it grows on you for all the reasons that people have been visiting the island for so many years, the beauty of the island, the security, and the friendliness of the local people. We hope to see you and your family one day soon.

Great views and very nicely decorated interior.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Quinta D'Alegria for one week end of April. To property is located half-way from Funchal to Monte right at the final Station of the Tobbogan. You can walk to the city center in 30 minutes, although the way back up the hill requires some training. Joy has decorated the house very nicely with lots of antiques and nothing is missing. We would highly recommend to book the welcome dinner with her, which was very delicious. However, you have to bear one thing in mind. The house is approximately 400m above sea level and therefore the temperature is usually lower than in Funchal and it appears that there is less sunshine than in the city. Besides that Quínta D'Alegria is a great place which we can fully recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your enthusiastic review of our property Quinta d’Alegria, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. The area of Livramento where we are located is in fact just 250 metres above sea level, and you are right that it’s slightly cooler than the city of Funchal, on the thermometer its’ usually a difference of 2 degrees centigrade. Unfortunately your first week in Madeira at Quinta d’Alegria, the weather was very changeable all over the Island, and it probably seemed to be sunnier down at the coast, however since the day you departed the weather has been much, much warmer and we have enjoyed clear skies and sunshine from morning until night. We do everything possible to ensure our guests are happy and comfortable but unfortunately we cannot influence the weather!!

Madeira’s charming capital town of Funchal, with its 140,000 inhabitants, sits in a large bowl that rises from a natural deep-water harbour on the south of this sub tropical island to an impressive backdrop of high mountains. It is the island’s centre of activity, with something for everyone: an opera house/theatre, chic shops, street stalls, open market, wine lodges, museums, city parks, bars, cafés and restaurants without number, multi-screen cinema, a Roman Catholic cathedral dating back to the 14th century and an English Anglican Church built in 1822. This beautiful island is famous for its tropical gardens, two championship golf courses, truly wonderful mountain and coastal walking, ocean swimming, sailing, game fishing, etc. and, above all, its friendly Portuguese inhabitants. Verdant and with varied and stunning scenery, it is definitely worth exploring and the new network of roads and tunnels make this so easy now.

Other Activities: tropical gardens, ten pin bowling, cinemas.
