Your Destination

Situated just under a mile from the historic centre of Funchal, the 5-star Quintinha de Sao Joao is a short taxi ride or 20-minute walk (uphill) from the cosmopolitan capital. 

In the centre of Funchal, there is a good variety of shops, restaurants and amenities, as well as places of historical interest and natural beauty.

For nature lovers, the levadas present you with an experience of a lifetime. Explore the island by walking the Madeira Levada paths and marvel at the island's fantastic natural beauty; visit one of the many botanical gardens and the protected Laurissilva Forest during your stay on this enchanting island.

For golf lovers, Madeira annually holds the Madeira Island Open and boasts two golf courses, the Palheiro Golf (18 holes) and the Santo da Serra (27 holes).

Choose this island in the middle of the Atlantic, and a world of nautical options open up to you, such as canoeing, diving, game fishing, sailing, surfing and windsurfing. There is so much choice that there is a different one for you to try-out every day of the week!

Please note: the walk to the centre of town is via some very steep hills so may not be suitable for those with mobility issues.
