  • Having a brochure of this site from a few years back we decided to give it a visit. The 32 bus took us nearby, so we followed the signs and entered via a doorway. Almost no-one about, hardly any orchi...  more »
  • The entire complex is beautifully situated on the hillside of Funchal. The State is desolate. Unfortunately, the maintenance has been neglected. The entrance to the Orchid House is totally cracks 4.5 euros. The exhibition is small and without creative quality. Unfortunately unpleasant. You could do something in this place.

  • Beautiful arrival with spectacular views in every third turn. Views with more than 180 degrees degrees! Better one is afraid of heights. The wind can blow it even colder.

  • Stayed self catering in a converted cow shed called Casa Grande, which was in a garden estate, hence the name Quinta da Boa Vista, which in English means an estate with a good view. The views from our garden were fantastic. We could see right down into Funchal town and the cruise liner terminal, not to mention the boats at sea. Our garden had Aloe Vera and other succulents growing in the border. The garden had a small lawn, so we could sit outside for meals. It was bordered by a banana plantation. The cottage was very comfortable and had a lovely modern kitchen. There was satellite TV but out of over a hundred stations just a few English. As the estate is on a steep hill you need to get the bus up from town and then walk down hill. Bus fare only euro 1.95 ! As holiday makers on the estate the owner allowed us to roam around and even visit the world famous orchid collection housed in greenhouses on the estate. The owner of the estate was so kind to my wife and I. He helped us make so many happy memories, as we celebrated our wedding anniversary in Madeira.
  • Lovely place with tons of orchids. Worth of visit. Easily accesible by bus nr. 31, 32, or walking from Funchal. You can buy some flowers or books here. Small caffey is next door and you can enjoy amazing view from the garden.
  • Fantastic orchid display and homemade cakes but really unsuitable for those with poor mobility. Also mosquitos in the greenhouse
  • Beautifull natural working garden,also lovely cake and coffee.
  • Fantastic and exclusive hotel where you feel in heaven.
