The Madeira Islands region

Quinta das Faias is located on the site of Vale Paraiso (Paradise Valley), Camacha village, near the city of Funchal.

Since Vale Paraíso (Paradise Valley), settlement where the Quinta is, is crossed by two “levadas”, there are 5 different walking tours along the ”levadas” (levada walks) starting from the Quinta: in the levada of Serra do Faial, in the levada dos Tornos and pedestrian path connecting Camacha to Caniço.

You can also find several emblematic levada walks or mountain pedestrian paths that are relatively close, allowing visualization of Laurisilva forests, distinguished by UNESCO as World-Wide Natural Patrimony.

Staying at the Quinta you can also reach the right places in case you wish to practice sports, such as: ­ golf, two courses, which are at a distance of 10 and 20 min by car; ­horse riding; or various maritime activities, such as sailing, diving, fishing and boating.

Alternatively you can choose to swim in the sea in Garajau, Caniço, Santa Cruz or Funchal, which are located about 15/20 min drive.

In Funchal you will also find many cultural events, museums and shops, plus restaurants of all kinds.


Quinta das Faias is situated at an altitude of 700 m, where you will find large garden areas with different flora and trees such as Camellias and Til, a variety endemic to Madeira and belonging to the Laurisilva forest.

The Quinta is 1 km away from the center of Camacha, where there is a pharmacy, health center, post office, banks, supermarkets and small restaurants. You can find a supermarket 400 m away from the Quinta.

There is a restaurant just the other side of the road of the Quinta, with walking access.

"A Dream"

Casa das Hortenses on the estate of Quinta das Faias, Camacha, Madeira, was exactly as described and absolutely charming. Set in wonderful grounds, away from mass tourism, beautiful and quiet surroundings full of flowers, excellent hiking opportunities and teeming with collected plant specimens it was peaceful, beautiful and a total getaway.

We were made to feel very welcome and nothing seemed too much trouble for the owner Rita and Filipe and the care of both is excellent during the holiday.

A lovely place at a central place! Close to Funchal, airport and the mountains, to come back after a day walking or a visit to busy Funchal.

As an architect I appreciated the quality of the recovery of the old house, the high level of construction, its thermal insulation and soundproofing, and its decoration, contributing to have a wonderful time.
The house is equipped with everything you need to make a meal, and has TV, wireless internet and a slove, a beautiful garden, good service, it really is a dream!

Angela, was very friendly and took care for cleaning and everything. Nearby there is a big supermarket and some local restaurants.
Madeira is amazing for hiking in the mountains, swimming in the sea, it has everything and the local firewater, poncha, is not to be missed - strong but delicious! There are good restaurants nearby and nice little bars in Funchal but it was so nice to buy fish in the market and the local garlicky bread by the roadside and eat it at home by the fire.
Can't wait to come back, will recommend to all my friends!
