“Excellent cottage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We were fortunate enough to learn about the Quinta da Faja from friends who stayed there while cycling and hiking in Madeira. It is a working farm! We picked fruit, pulled up lettuce for salad and generally loved walking around what was clearly a grand estate. If one wants fresh air, calm and a degree of seclusion from the noise and bustle of Funchal center, this is the place. In addition, the Madeiran owner, David de Gouveia is a cosmopolitan, multilingual gentleman who has lived in other countries yet knows Madeira thoroughly. His advice is invaluable to understand more about Madeira.

Room Tip: There are four cottages. Each is different. Ideal for couples or families.
