Property Description

Casa do Feitor (the Factor's House) is one of three charmingly restored gems that sit within the 4-acre working estate of Quinta Vista Alegre where bananas and vines are grown and century-old tropical gardens are tended. Astonishingly, this oasis of tranquillity is found in the main tourist zone of Funchal, near the sea and Belmond Reid's Palace Hotel.

Converted from the old Billiard House, Stables and Factor's accommodation the cottage walls are of original stone and interiors are spacious, characterful and well designed with top quality furnishings and equipment. The large swimming pool is shared with the owner and their family (for a few days of the year this may include family children).

Casa do Feitor (Factor's House) has comfortable 1st floor accommodation with a large balcony, suitable for 2 guests. Accessed by an old stone staircase, the front door opens into a living room with sofa, 2 armchairs, a coffee table locally crafted from chestnut beams used in the Quinta, a desk, side tables, a TV with over 600 cable channels, including German satellite channels , broadband access and table lamps.

Beyond, the kitchen/diner has table/seating for 4, an electric hob, oven, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, toaster and kettle and plenty of crockery/serving/cooking/storage equipment. Sliding glass doors lead to the deck-floored balcony with wicker table & 2 chairs.

The bedroom (with king double bed) has a mahogany chest of drawers with mirror above and a full length mirror. The bathroom has bath with shower, basin, bidet, loo, heated towel rail and a fitted double hanging cupboard (with small safe).

Linen, bath & pool towels and weekly cleaning are provided. There is a shared separate laundry room with washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board available for guests' use.

These villas in Funchal are adult only and do not accept children. The swimming pool may be used between 09:00 and 17:00. Free Wi-Fi and a Bluetooth speaker are available for guests' use. An electric fan is provided in summer and a portable electric heater provided in winter months.

The 4 acre estate of Quinta Vista Alegre has been in the Zino family for 70 years, the owners being the third generation. The main house (currently occupied by the owners) was built around 1867. It is a working Quinta growing vines and bananas. Much of the garden was laid out by an English family, the Stanfords, between 1902 and 1912 and Charles Thomas-Stanford wrote "Leaves from a Madeira Garden" about his garden and the island.

Opposite the entrance to Quinta Vista Alegre (where the cottages are) is the entrance to Quinta Magnolia, previously an British Country Club which is now Government owned. Here you can enjoy beautiful gardens, a fitness circuit, and two tennis courts, all set in an area of about 40.000 square meters. Just down the street you have the two most prestigious hotels on the island, Belmond Reid's Palace, and the Savoy Palace.There are no other villas in Madeira that offer this mix of tranquil character and traditon with a central sought after location.
Nearby are other excellent hotels and a good variety of restaurants, cafés, bars, and small supermarkets. You can enjoy sea swimming at the public Lido about 1 km by foot, or you may just want to walk along the coast in this area. Funchal town centre is only a 20 minute leisurely stroll away (less than 2 kilometres).
Buses/taxis are close and frequent. A car is not essential but advisable to explore this beautiful island.
