Swimming in Madeira: Madeira is not known for its beaches as it is basically a volcanic island. However there are two very nice yellow imported sand beaches. One is at Calheta about 40 minutes away by car or taxi and the other is at Machico about 30 minutes away from Funchal city centre by rapid bus. There is a swimming pool at the Hotel de Penha Da Franca where our guests can enjoy swimming in either of their pools or in the sea. This hotel is a 10/15 minute walk away from Quinta Elena. The daily cost is €14 but our clients can enjoy these facilities for €10 per day on a Sunday or Bank/religious holiday or €10per day during the week.

Owner purchased this house in 2006
We fell in love with this Villa immediately...the space the quality of fixtures and fittings....the short distance to the centre of Funchal...Restaurants of excellent quality are only a short distance away.
Two balconies...one for the morning sun and then one for the afterrnoon sun....flowers in pots on both of these balconies...views of the sea and of the mountains.
We cannot think of enough superlatives to describe this house(except that it exceeded our expectations!!). The house has everything that you need for a wonderful holiday plus a great location as well. We will be recommending it to our friends. Richard, Anne, Alan and Barbara
A home in the sun for Christmas! What a treat! We enjoyed a whole week over Christmas at Quinta Elena - especially breakfast on the sunny rooftop terrace overlooking Funchal and its bay. Elaine and Richard did their best to provide the house with personal details which make you feel like home immediately - especially with the hearty welcome by their housekeeper Emily. Obrigada for sharing your cosy and elegant Madeira home with us - in a quiet area but in walking distance to picturesque Funchal and the best bakery in town! // Quinta Elena ist sehr zu empfehlen - sehr persönlich, in ruhiger Lage und doch fast im Zentrum von Funchal!
The house itself is wonderful, spacious and full of character. The house made it for us. We loved it, and spent a lot of our time hanging about the house. There is a small garden/patio area and two balconies to sit in to soak up the sunshine. If you want a house in the city, then this is a perfect place to stay.
We stayed for 1 week in mid February. The house was exactly as described. Very charming, oozing with character and spotlessly clean. It is in a very central location. The taxi airport pickup, included with our rental, was seamless and efficient. The house is a comfortable walking distance to nearby cafes, park, supermarket and to the old Town with many wonderful restaurants. We did not rent a car, but bought several one day tour packages from nearby tourist kiosks.
We were 5 friends/family who rented the villa for one week. We really enjoyed our stay. The villa was great and the garden was amazing. We sat in the garden in the morning, in the late afternoon and every night when we came back after having had dinner.The location was perfect. It was a very quiet area and only 5-10 minutes walk from the center of Funchal. The owner provided good service and was very helpfull. So we highly recommend this villa.

Quinta Elena liegt in 10min fußläufig zur Innenstadt Funchal in einer ruhigen Wohngegend am Casino. Das Haus liegt im einem kleinen Garten mit einer Natursteinmauer umgeben. Das Haus hat einen englischen Stil. Alles ist sehr sauber und alle erdenklichen Küchengeräte sind vorhanden einschlieslich Waschmaschine. Das Haus ist perfekt für eine 4-5-köpfige Familie. Wir haben immer morgens und abends im Garten für Frühstück und Abendessen gesessen.
I have been to Madeira many times but Quita Elena was the best house I've ever stayed at. The house was clean, very well maintained and simply beautiful. It's a really large house with great views from the many terraces and a gorgeous front garden that was very private and comfortable. We spent many nights relaxing in the garden. The owner of the house is lovely and the customer service was excellent. I highly recommend this house not only because it's such a beautiful and comfortable house, but also because of it's location - 5 minute walk to downtown Funchal and 2 minute walk to Casino Madeira. The rental of the house also included a free pick up from the airport and the driver was wonderful - we booked him for all our island tours and he was knowledgeable and very friendly. This is a home away from home and you won't be disappointed. I can't wait to come back to Quinta Elena!
