The
Experience

Climb up the hill from the bustling town, drive down a narrow street and through a driveway (even narrower – watch the car) to enter a green oasis, and be greeted by friendly Andrew, passionate about this place and bursting with plans. It’s B&B but incredibly free from fuss: you may put your own food and wine in the fridge, flop out in the sitting room or in the pretty garden, wander the vines from which delicious madeira wine is produced (ask about the family history), come and go freely. Breakfast is outside on sunny days: homemade granola and jams, fresh fruit, cheese. If you can’t face walking into town or fending for yourselves then opt for dinner – 3 courses of traditional dishes mainly from Madeira, Portugal and Italy. Bedrooms are upstairs off a long corridor and aren’t in the least surprising – more of an old-fashioned homely feel – but all are large, light, comfortable and spotlessly clean; bathrooms are generous with proper windows. Hard core walkers can storm into the hills from the house and there’s swimming from the beaches in town. A friendly place to stay – not for the helicopter brigade.

Local points of interest from Andrew Blandy

  • Its a family home that goes back 7 generations, and belongs to one of Madeira´s wine making family the Blandy´s.
  • Guests are welcome to use the kitchen to cook their own meals (we supply the basics) and pick fresh herbs and lettuces from the farm.
  • Spend sometime exploring the Quinta; We have animals (sheep and hens) a vineyard and you can also book a workshop with one of our onsite artists (painting or ceramics).
  • Rich flora and fauna. Madeira possesses a uiquely rich variety of species; from the endemic UNESCO world heritage site forest the Laurrisilva , to introduced species from all around the world making this a nature lovers paradise.
  • An abundance of walks, along Madeira´s irrigation canals, takes you to some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in Europe. All within easy reach of the Quinta.Other activities include; canyoning, deep sea diving, mountainbiking, whale watching.
