“A little gem”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The hours spent trawling the Internet for a rental property with heart and style in Funchal was well worth the effort. My friend and I stayed in the Lavender Apartment for nine nights and in our opinion was the best, although all the apartments are wonderful, especially the orchid apartment. The lavender apartment opened out onto its own paved terrace and was very private. We enjoyed many lunches with local wine and bread bought from a small supermarket and wonderful bakery just a short walk away and the old town of Funchal was only a ten minute walk away where we sampled the delights of local food. The garden has lots of nooks and crannies where you can escape for a quite read or siesta. Roberto and Helena, the owners of this beautiful retreat were welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We will certainly be returning next year. Many thanks for re-juvenating two women that needed a rest!!

Reviewed March 8, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Lovely place to stay. Not surrounded by other hotels or apartment blocks. Above the old town. Bus stop right outside. Studios very comfortable. Lovely outside areas. Fantastic shared balcony looking down on to the town and harbour. Easy with a car to get from here around the island.

It's difficult to know exactly what to say about this wonderful quinta that hasn't been said already, but I will tell you that the apartment,Orchid, was fully equipped I never had to buy a thing, even coat hangers were of a high quality, an item which I'd considered bringing from the UK but no need,truly everything has been thought about in great detail, beautiful glasses ,crockery,cutlery this was all of a high standard.
I've only stayed in hotels when travelling abroad, but have got to say,that this place has changed my mind about ,'Self Catering'. It's great,I agree with everything that anyone has said about this place,with the exception of one,maybe, !
Buses,taxis are plentiful,and a wonderful Butcher,grocer,and baker are only a 2 minute walk away,other clients have said about the views,gardens,quietness,and friendliness of the hosts Helena and Roberto, and will only add that all this is true,thanks for reading this,and just book it,you won't be disappointed ....honest

“Simply beautiful, we will return”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

This beautiful property lovingly restored to a high standard by owners Helena and Roberto, is the perfect place from which to enjoy Madeira. We stayed in Orchid apartment which has stunning views from its balcony over Funchal towards the harbour. The location is excellent, away from the busy tourist area, and close to the old town with an easy walk to the sea front. The apartments and gardens are all beautifully renovated (we saw inside several of them) and very well appointed, and the owners are very helpful, friendly and welcoming. Altogether a lovely tranquil place to stay, and we are already making plans to return.

“A delightful apartment with fabulous views”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We had a lovely stay for one week in the Magnolia apartment which looks out and over Funchal. Breakfast outside in the sun on the quiet patio made the whole experience even better. Our friends stayed in the next apartment and we enjoyed several BBQ's in the evening sun. Our hosts were very helpful with their local knowledge and an added bonus is that the 31 and 31a buses stop right outside the door whether you are down into town or up the botanical Gardens. A real taste of life in Madeira.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Had a wonderful stay here at the end of April. The accommodation is well appointed and very comfortable. Helena and Roberto are very welcoming and can't do enough to make your stay more enjoyable.

The rooms are large, nicely decorated and have everything you need for your stay. We particularly enjoyed cooling dips in the pool, walks around the garden (with a little lizard spotting!) the use of the barbecue.

Notes to consider:

We recommend the option of taking Mr Alves's taxi to and from the airport.
The walk from town is rather hilly, fine if you're fit, but you'll need to take a cab otherwise.
Try to make sure you visit Mariazinha bakery for their wonderful cakes and mixing with the locals.
Local dogs and cats are poorly cared for and barking can be noisy at times. Accept this cultural difference...
Ants WILL get into poorly stored food, do not underestimate their determination.
Los Combatentes restaurant in the city centre highly recommended.
Walk the levadas!!!
Hire a car and tour the rural parts of the island, it's utterly stunning.

“Lovely place, amazing and relaxing stay”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This was our second stay in Madeira via Helena and Roberto Valente? This time we stayed in Orchid Apartment 4 - 9 Oct 2013. The quinta and the apartment look even better in real life than from the photos. Good location, good facilities, very friendly owners. Helena and Roberto are restoring this quinta with their heart and having further plans with this place, so we cannot wait to see it after some years! A place with history, for sure. Quinta is having 4 apartments, however during our stay we shared the place only with 2 lovely couples, 1 apartment was not occupied. Meaning, we all had a lot of privacy, all quests respected the quinta's rules and other quests (e.g. no loud music etc). Orchid apartment is located on second floor and have most beautiful views to Funchal and ocean. We liked our morning walks to local bakery for good coffee and bread. We adored long evenings in opened balcony with sunset. We loved walk to the city (only 10-15 mins) and coming back by bus (31 or 31a). If you want to stay only in Funchal, then car is not necessary. Helena and Roberto can arrange several tours to see island and levadas, you just need to call or e-mail Helena! Mr. Alves can meet you at your arrival and can take you back to airport when leaving. It is truly a paradise island and breathtaking quinta to stay! We would love to come back soon... Heli and Heiki from Estonia.
