Quintinha Sao Joao Hotel, Madeira
Hotel Features & Facilities
Located just 3 minutes from downtown Funchal via courtesy shuttle bus, the Quintinha Sao Joao Hotel invites you to experience a unique holiday, a romantic honeymoon or an unforgettable anniversary celebration.
Quintinha São João Hotel is one of “Quintas da Madeira”, an association of hotels that are able to recount something about the history of Madeira, with the intention of preserving an interesting and valuable heritage, in our case the manor house or “Quinta” within the state, home of the hotel owners.
A total of one acre of sub tropical gardens surround the original 150 year old “Quinta”. More than 300 different species of flora abound these gardens, together with 25 different examples of cacti. Century old trees watch majestically over the Quinta as their branches sway in the breeze.
The delicate fragrance of jasmine fills the air whilst a gentle stroll through the gardens brings peace and tranquility to the soul. Begonias, hibiscus, camellias all thrive in this varied and colourful corner of paradise. What better place to pause from the rigors of everyday life and regain a sense of harmony and well-being? Relax amongst the trees on one of the benches, sun-beds or hammocks. Listen to bird song whilst reading that long awaited novel. Meditate in this sublime setting which offers the ideal opportunity to tune in to your inner self. Perfection.
