This elegant small luxury botanical garden hotel in Madeira Island is Quinta Jardins do Lago.
We are delightfully situated on one of the green hills surrounding the city of Funchal and very close to its principal area of historical interest.
This charming Madeiran Quinta was built in the 18th century. More recently it was the home of well-known French and British families. During the Napoleonic wars General Beresford, Commander of the British forces on the island, chose it as his residence. His magnificent sideboard, a reminder of his stay, still adorns our dining room.
Today, Quinta Jardins do Lago, with 32 double rooms (12 Standards and 20 Superior), 4 Historical Junior Suites, 4 Premier Suites and 1 Presidencial Suite, all facing south to the luscious gardens, have been passionately designed to offer the best accommodation with modern functionality in traditional comfort and style.
