Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in São Martinho - Quinta Freitas

A classic traditional Quinta style home suitable for families and small groups

Quinta Freitas is testimony to the reincarnation of a style of property that was enjoyed by the owner as a young child in Madeira. It is reminiscent of the way grand old Portuguese families lived by in the 'good old days'. It has traditional style furniture but it is also a modern property. It was recently built and has a huge skylight in the stairwell to invite the lovely Madeira sun into the home. There are five Bedrooms with large king size beds in every bedroom and five ensuite bathrooms.

Please visit the Quinta Freitas website: http://www.madeiraapartments.com/index.php/property/unit/Quinta_Freitas

There is enough parking for the guests if they hire cars and there is regular bus services less than thirty metres away from the Quinta should you prefer to travel by bus.

There is a coffee shop/bakery as well as a bar/pub within walking distance of the Quinta Freitas too.

Apart from the year round mild weather and excellent 'green' eye-candy you may also just want to stay somewhere nice when you visit Madeira. Somewhere where it is warm, where the south facing position of a very personal and traditional property enjoys excellent sunny dispositions and floral filled gardens, and where the best of heartfelt warmth and welcome is provided by your affable and sometimes gregarious host. With a convenient location near to Funchal City Centre, easy access is had to almost any part of Funchal within minutes, and to the rest of the island from between 10 to 45 minutes.

What makes this villa unique

This is a unique property not only for its very spacious living area and large Bedrooms, but also because each Bedroom has their own private ensuite Bathroom which is very important especially for large families or groups.

The house is tastefully decorated and is fully equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, and clothes dryer. It also has a large Barbecue area, lots of parking place in case you decide to rent a car and a balcony with sea view where you can sit, relax and enjoy the sunshine!

Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife and I, my children and grandchildren all enjoyed our stay at Quinta Freitas. A beautiful home, nicely furnished, full of family heirlooms and irreplaceable treasures.

Mr Freitas was a most attentive, jovial and kind host. My grandchildren loved him. All the bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms of ample proportions were well furnished.

The entrance drive was a picture, full of flowering plants lovingly attended by the host. We felt very comfortable staying at Quinta Freitas and were sorry to leave. We are already thinking about when we might return.

Lovely quinta, welcoming host

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Quinta Freitas. Our host Nelson was very helpful with everything we needed and made us really feel at home. The house and the garden were very well taken care of and near the highway to the different attractions. What a great week. I hope the fire has respected the area.

Very very nice week in Quinta Freitas

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in Funchal. It began at the airport where Nelson came to wait for us. Nelson was very attentive and always available to make service.

The rooms and bathrooms are very large. We had only one worry : the first night, we had mosquitoes but Nelson has taken measures as soon and we did not have other worries. We recommend this property to anyone who have a good stay in Funchal.

it was luxury home from home

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful, and although it was large was homely and comfortable.

It felt secluded and, although there is a motorway behind the property it did not intrude on the holiday. We slept very well.

The property was maintained to a high standard, and was cleaned every day, with regular changes of linen and towels. The rooms are light and well equipped, it truly felt like home for home.

Nelson, the owner, was an absolute treasure and could not have been more helpful or friendly. My husband and I enjoy gardening and Nelsons garden was well cared for, and we often chatted with Nelson about the plants and gardening.

He insisted on taking us to the supermarket when we needed to go shopping, and gave us information about where to go and what to see. The restaurant he recommended, Londres restaurant, was superb, but sadly we did not get to it until the day before we left. We took small trips around the island but our favourite was the Land Rover safari tour which took us to through the forests and around the tiny roads to see the real island.

I would recommend this property to any of my family and friends as it was a relaxing and homely property to stay in.

Madeira is a beautiful island with such friendly and helpful locals.

we really enjoyed our stay at Quinta Freitas.

Car: recommended

There is a bakery/snack bar across the road from the Quinta Freitas where you can get fresh bread and pastries on a daily basis and there is also a bar/pub where you can relax and enjoy a “poncha” or “nikita” which is highly recommended.

Located in the city of Funchal and a stone's throw from Câmara de Lobos. Very easy access to the ER 101 express way ('Estrada Regional 101' or 'Via Rápida'). Which means you are minutes away from everything. You gain very easy access to almost any part of Funchal or the rest of Madeira. Less than 2 km (as the crow flies) from Madeira's largest Beach: Praia Formosa.

Quinta Freitas website with more details: http://www.madeiraapartments.com/index.php/property/unit/Quinta_Freitas

Golf: To get to the closest Golf Course (Palheiro Golf) you use the express way (some 500 m) away from the Quinta. Nearly everyone or anyone who wants to play golf has to use the express way to get to the course. So it is as easy as anywhere else on the island to get to the golf course since it is in such easy proximity to the main thoroughfare that leads to the off ramp off the express way to the road that leads to Palheiro Golf.
