Quinta Da Penha De França, Funchal

Just a ten minute walk from town, this Quinta, set in beautiful mature tropical gardens, is a real delight. Owned and managed by the Ribeiro family, the emphasis here is on something a little different from the other hotels in Madeira.


The hotel has 36 superior side seaview rooms overlooking the garden and pool, many inter-connect making them ideal for families. The traditional charm and elegance of the original Quinta have been cleverly complemented by the addition of the garden wing and the sea level wing. The sea level wing with direct sea access is connected to the original gardens by a foot-bridge over the road, here you will also find the diving centre.

In the original house there are no balconies but four rooms have a view across the gardens to the sea. The garden wing offers terraced balcony rooms, again some with side seaview, whilst all the sea level terrace or balconied rooms including junior suites overlook the pool to the sea. All rooms have TV, Wi-fi, mini-bar and air-conditioning (except those in the original house). Single occupancy rooms are available.


There are two seawater pools plus a children’s pool, both surrounded by ample sun terraces, the upper level pool is heated in winter. The two restaurants and two bars offer greater choice to guests with calm, efficient service throughout. Near reception you will find a delightful lounge furnished with antiques whilst the games room offers snooker/billiards and bridge. The hotel can also arrange massages.

Early booking is recommended at this charmingly individual hotel.

We will get you here from the airport by private taxi in about 20 minutes.
