Each room features an en suite bathroom with a shower and bathtub, a kitchen with fridge, cooker, microwave and tea and coffee making facilities, and a private balcony or terrace. Other in-room amenities include a direct dial telephone, Internet access, a safe, ironing set and central heating.

Excellent appartements in the mountains

Review by marikas639

Quinta de Santo Antonio da Serra is beautifully located next to the quiet mountain village Antonio da Serra. The two-story appartment we stayed in had absolutely everything: it was nicely furbished, sparkling clean, well-equipped kitchen, a veranda with a beautiful view of the garden and the mountains, very comfortable beds, 2 bathrooms, a fireplace, good parking. The appartment was also serviced every day with new towels etc when needed...

The hosts were super-friendly and very accomodating. It really couldn't be better! We had an very relaxing and enjoyable stay and can highly recommend it.

Will be back!

Review by BrendaA1030 Mgarr, Malta

My husband and I stayed here during our first visit to Madeira. The property totally exceeded our expectations. It is set in a lovely quiet village and has everything you might need including a kitchenette...

Very cosy and welcoming. The manager was really friendly too. Will definitely return to this property when we next visit Madeira.

Fantastic stayed high in the mountains

Review by evasion2011 Montreal, Canada

We stayed at Quinta Santo Antonio da Serra six nights and it was quiet, comfortable and cozy. It gets a little bit chilli in the nigth but you can enjoy a nice fire place! You are surrended by a beautiful garden and the view to the mountains is breathtaking. The nearest supermarket is in Machico and you will find all you need...

The location at the Quinta is strategic if you are planing to do different tracks in the area. From there you can drive to multiple trekking starts. Paulo will welcome you and make sure you have all you need. We highly recommend this place!

Review by aoc1961 Leicester, United Kingdom

We stayed here for a week and had a great time. The apartment was very well set up, clean, tidy and staff visited on a regular basis. The views are lovely too with garden areas with chairs to sit and relax...

Everything has been well thought out. The kitchen had all the facilities. Nice touches too like washing up liquid, scourers, cloths etc. I usually end up buying this sort of thing. The local shops are well stocked and very handy and there are a few local restaurants too. The local bus service runs every couple of hours. Another review on this forum was very helpful. Definitely worth getting the SAM local bus app. It's nearly a two hour bus drive in to Funchal but worth it for the views. We hired a car for a day to see other parts of the island. The bus also stops at Machico and this is a lovely place too. The staff at the apartments could not have been more helpful. Their local knowledge was so useful and they organised the car hire too which was very reasonable. If you are looking for a beautiful place to stay and peace and quiet, this us the place to stay. Thank you for a wonderful time.
