How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count The Ways.
This is a fresh listing to this site but a well established property. Apologies for the quotation from Elizabeth Barrett Browning but I have stayed in this apartment the last four Christmas periods and the poem sums it up beautifully. I have come to know the owners very well and they will do all they can to make your stay special without being intrusive. A house stood on this site for several centuries before the Quinta was built so it stands in beautiful private grounds with fabulous views. Orchid apartment is on the second floor accessed by an exterior spiral staircase so not appropriate if you are disabled. However I am a pensioner and manage the climb perfectly well albeit slowly, the reward being the stunning views from the private verandah.
As you can see from the photographs this is a spacious studio apartment with a modern bathroom containing a good size shower. I enjoy the way that original features have been retained providing modern facilities yet something more satisfying than an impersonal hotel room. There is a bus stop outside the gates convenient for going both into town and directly up to the botanical gardens. The Quinta is to the east of Funchal in a residential area yet within easy reach of the picturesque Old Town with its restaurants, shops and the marina. It is well away from the busy hotel zone if something more relaxed is your preference with a small store and coffee shop within walking distance for breakfast rolls etc.
Dear friend, we will keep doing our best in this unique offer in Funchal which is a listed property and will try to make all our efforts to maintain it and assure our guests they will have an unforgettable stay.
Look forward to having you back soon and thank you so much for your testimony.
Helena and Roberto.
A great place to spend holidays
A well-tended park welcomes behind a big iron gate leading to a manor house and passing a nice swimming pool. Wrought-iron corkscrew stairs bring up to the apartment Orchid on the second floor. The perfect view on downtown Funchal and the harbor invites to stay on the little covered terrace before stepping into a charming 1-room apartment lovingly decorated. There is a large and comfortable bed and a big wardrobe. The bathroom is new and just perfect. The kitchenette contains all one needs. Three large windows one of which opens to a little balcony perfectly match the plastered white ceiling decorated with an appealing lustre. Cable-TV provides many foreign programs, and there is a WLAN router in the apartment enabling very strong and stable Internet-access.
The Quinta Esperanza is just a 15min walk away from downtown Funchal and a bus stop at the gate provides additional comfort.
Finally, he landlords, Helena and Roberto are genial, personable and their hospitality is just great!
