It is very beautiful to see all kind of orchids there, but for the price you pay, 5 eur entrance, I would expect an spotless clean and well maintained garden. The roof needs urgent maintenance.

While in Funchal I took a look in this garden. The plants and the grounds were all immaculate and the place was beautiful. Highly recommended.

for flower lovers this a feast for the eyes. its a bit of a trek from the botanical gardens but well worth it. If you are coming by taxi its worth combining a trip to both. well worth a visit.

Well worth a side trip,but you must make sure you get the highly educational explanatory tour. Learned a lot about orchid propagation from scion of Austrian family who developed this property. No commercial growing so study tour. Our May visit among the best times for multiple colourful plants

On our previous visit we went to see the Boa Vista orchid garden, and based on the reviews we wanted to visit the Pregetter's garden this time. But what a disappointment it was!!! These people do NOT have a love for their garden or for orchids (any more)! The place is rundown, with roof glass missing. There is no staff... More

your guide books will say that the jardim da orchid is 200 mts below the cable car to the botanical gardens, but what they mean is below the bottom of the botanical gardens, which is far more than 200mts in size. We walked downhill for ages and finally asked in a shop and were told at least another ten minutes... More

We have done many tours but visiting the Pregetter’s Orchid Gardens was one of the most interesting we have achieved. It was informative, enlightening and what the presenter didn’t know about Orchids and wild life plants wasn’t worth knowing. He was passionate about his guided tour and was prepared to spend as much time as you want walking around the... More

Our visit last August to this wonderful natural setting of all varieties and sizes of orchids in a rustic natural setting was well worth time and money. Casually walking through the walkways through the "house" was very interesting and the artistic original displays were beautiful. A very worthwhile stop for all who love orchids as well as great views of... More

Even visiting in February was good. Walking around the orchid houses surrounded by orchids and other lush plants was fun and there are some beautiful orchids and other plants to be seen.

We were recommended by our hotel to go to this orchid house. It is linked to the Botanical gardens in Madeira. On arriving, we thought it was just a house with some garden but quickly realised that there was enclosure after enclosure. Even in December it was lovely. A great find and well worth going if you like orchids. The... More
