Ideal for families; two rooms (double and twin with shared bathroom) located within a wonderful old style Quinta house, with beautiful views over the family vineyards and bay of Funchal. A rural oasis in an urban setting.

Guests can use the kitchen

The space

Quinta das Malvas is one of the finest properties in Funchal, and indeed Madeira. Boasting fine views and a luxurious interior this historic house goes back to the 19th century. Recently renovated in 2004 to a high standard, this property, situated within Quinta de Santa Luzia, offers comfort and privacy at very affordable rates.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to explore the surroundings of Quinta de Santa Luzia, (there is a natural entrance from Malvas onto the property), where you can select your own herbs and vegetables, visit the family vineyard and enjoy the spacious surroundings of a traditional working Quinta (farm or estate in Portuguese).

Interaction with guests

We like welcoming people and enjoy seeing people feel at home. Margarida our housekeeper is always available for any questions you may have during your visit.

Other things to note

You are welcome to use the kitchen for any meals you wish to prepare. There is a donation box for the basics we supply (teas, coffee, sugar, olive oil etc.). Alternatively you can ask Margarida to prepare a delicious home cooked meal (please give 12 hours notice ) for you.

It was a lovely place. Very relaxing. I would definitely recommend it to friends. My only suggestion is some coasters as I didn't want to damage the beautiful furniture.

This is a cosy, well-run B&B at a traditional, spacious Quinta! Margarida and her team are very welcoming. You'll be treated to tasty breakfasts and great views of hilly Funchal. With a car, access to the city (5-10 min) and the highway is a breeze, making it an ideal spot to explore all of Madeira without having to be in the centre of it all.

We had a wonderful stay at Quinta dad Malvas. A lovely B&B with wonderful garden full of beautiful flowers and trees as seen in the photos. Andrew and his staff were very attentive and helpful. We enjoyed our stay very much.

We throughly enjoyed our stay at Quinta das Malvas. The rooms were airy and spacious, the breakfasts were simple but delicious, and, much to our son's delight, there was a slide, swing and little house under a big beautiful tree in the front garden. We were made to feel quite welcome, and they were extremely helpful when our luggage was delayed and put a screen on one of our windows (to keep the mosquitos at bay) extremely quickly and efficiently. Only one thing to note - this particular booking showed up under a search for an entire house. It didn't matter for us in the end as there are plenty of living rooms and we hardly saw any other guests but it might be worth noting. Would definitely recommend!

Quinta Das Malvas a un petit goût de l'ancien temps très appréciable. Cette demeure bourgeoise est située au sein d'une ferme et a un beau jardin. Le salon avec cheminée nous a permis de passer une soirée de Noël "comme à la maison". La chambre est très grande et agréable et elle est séparée de la chambre des enfants par une salle de bain en parquet géante. A recommander!
