Quinta da Bela Vista

Surrounded by the scenic landscape of Portugal's island of Madeira, this walled estate was lovingly transformed from an antique manor house into a cozy holiday sanctuary. The ambience of a private residence is enhanced with homey furnishings and warm touches such as fireplaces, curio cabinets and understated artwork. Views look out over the well-tended gardens, the distant mountains and/or Funchal Bay. For dining, Bela Vista offers an old-fashioned formality, while Avista Navios is sure to remind you of a classic European café. Facilities include a charming swimming pool and tennis court.
