A perfect location for the centre of Funchal and all interesting gems that the town has to offer. On the gentle stroll downhill you will pass the glorious avenue of Jacaranda trees that are riot of colour from late April through until June. On the right side is the large open space of Santa Catarina Park that also has many interesting trees and shrubs and also sweeping views of the town, the mountains and out to sea. The harbour area is spread below.
Nearby we have a number of very good coffee shops, convenience stores and good restaurants. There are also bus stops which will take you to various other areas..
This rather special house is of a traditional style, a family home known as a ‘Quinta’. Built over a century ago it is painted in typical colours of Madeira with a red tiled roof and has a delightful enclosed garden with many flowers and shrubs. A little haven of peace where you can sit, relax and enjoy your surroundings. There are also two sun terraces with views across the town, up into the mountains and out to sea.
It is spacious and although an older style, has been charmingly modernised. The atmosphere provided ensures that you will feel that you are staying in a local family home rather than a hotel block.

Breakfast in the sunshine while it was snowing in Scotland was an ideal tonic at this time of year. We had a great week in this lovely house.
An amazing time, thank you Richard & Elaine for making us so welcome. Quinta Elena is a beautiful house to come back to at the end of a long day sight-seeing.
Every day we came back tired from walking with the warm feeling of – HOME. No better place to start the day than in the lovely garden and no better place to chill out after a long day
A most enjoyable holiday in a lovely villa. Immaculate and well equipped.
Lucky us to have rented Quinta Elena.
