description Description

In the heart of Madeira's Santo da Serra region, with its towering green mountains and spectacular views, this magnificent country house, full of light, space and character, lies in an idyllic setting at the end of a private driveway amongst the trees of its extensive garden.

Two characteristically Madeiran verandas run the length of the house, one on each of its two floors, lending a touch of colonial flavour to this gracious building. From these shaded balconies you can look over the swimming pool (10 x 3.5 m), another of the Quinta's strong points (available May-October, shared with guests staying at the property's smaller cottage).

Being within 1 km of the village Santo da Serra (shopping  facilities, restaurants), 2 minutes from the Santo da  Serra Golf Club, and only 15 minutes from the airport and from the ocean, the property offers you peace and seclusion without the inconvenience of being remote or inaccessible.  The grounds offer you peace and seclusion without the inconvenience of being remote or inaccessible. In a similar manner which applies to the main house, the Quinta grounds can be visited by all visitors and organically produced vegetables can be purchased as and when available.

Accommodation is particularly comfortable comprising spacious (huge even) sitting and dining rooms, both with open fireplaces, 4/5 bedrooms each with twin single beds (and some with washbasins), two full bathrooms, fully fitted kitchen (dishwasher and wash machine  included), breakfast room, secondary living room and cloakroom (WC and  basin). Central heating is an added benefit during the winter months.  Given the size and extensive facilities of the  house, we would certainly recommend it as suitable for two families.

Wireless internet connection (free of charge), direct dial metered  telephone, central heating during the winter months, barbecue, croquet, swimming  pool (10 x 3.5 m, shared with cottage guests) - available from May to October.
A car is required, no public transportation available.
A twice weekly cleaning service is provided.

Sleeps 8 adults + 2 children, self catering.

edit_location Location - Area

Following the road from Funchal and continuing on it through Camacha, you will encounter a small village called Santo da Serra. This is the home of the former Blandy Park, where the paths are lined with wonderful blooming camellias.

The park has a small variety of animals including deer, horses, goats and even a kangaroo has been sighted.

Weekends are a good time to visit the village as the local people stage their market stalls along the main road and a surprising assortment of food and other goods can be acquired very cheap.

About 1500 metres off the centre of the village you will find the Santo da Serra Golf course - the official venue for the only PGA tournament taking place every year in Madeira. From this course golf players have incredible views over the island and the Atlantic Ocean.
