Description

TDP Alojamentosaude Logos 07THIS VILLA IS CERTIFIED CLEAN AND SAFE BY THE PORTUGUESE TOURIST OFFICE

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.

    it is an absolute gem in the middle of the "bulging" city of Funchal. The hosts Zito and their lovely dogs are very friendly and attentive! We were already for the second time in this great facility

    Dear Sabine, We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Quinta Stanford. Also the fact that you consider it a absolute gem in the middle of Funchal and that Frank and Buffy were great hosts. We look forward to host you a third time in Madeira. Kind Regards, António

    A perfect sanctuary in the centre of a beautiful country. Not to be missed if you want a peaceful retreat after a day's adventure in the heart of Madeira!

    Thank you for your kind words about our property!

    This is a very unique place in the heart of the city - a mini-estate of banana trees and grape vines. It's clean, spacious, modern and private. Everything works well and the wi-fi is especially strong (no problem chromecasting to the TV). The location is very convenient for the attractions of Funchal with a variety of bus stops within a five minute walk. If you're not planning regular excursions outside the city, you won't need a car.

    Madeira is brilliant, but it's useful to pick a base that makes travelling around the island as convenient as possible. We think we got this just right in our decision to stay here with Our Madeira. The walk into Funchal was very acceptable, and taxis and buses were close at hand - as were restaurants, shops, swimming spots and a diving school. The accommodation itself was great, with everything we needed and lots of helpful extras like guidebooks and tips from our hosts, as well as good communication throughout. We have a personal highlight though that might not be everyone's top choice! One thing you'll find on Madeira is you cannot get away from wall lizards, which are everywhere, and we loved that we shared our balcony with a lizard couple. No one should be scared of them as they are very sweet, calm and unintrusive - they'd pop by to keep us company and maybe eat a small piece of fruit, but are too timid to venture indoors even if you happened to leave a door or window open. I hope whoever follows us in staying at the house will be kind to them! :)

    Many thanks for your great comments

    This Casa was an absolute delight to stay in for our 10 nights in Funchal, a wonderful oasis in the midst of busy Funchal. The Casa lacked nothing and worked perfectly for us to get out and about exploring the island using public transport, the pool is generous and lovely at the end of a hot days exploring, fantastic local bakery called Sesamo for great bread and cakes and local small supermarket. The Casa is light, bright, airey, spotlessly clean with excellent cooking facilities and equipment, bed very comfortable and the balcony is lovely to sit out on anytime. Hosts are genuinely interested in you, welcoming and knowledgable.

    Wonderful

    We're almost reluctant to review this property but that would be selfish of us. Having found it, we don't want to share it. We can honestly say that we have never stayed anywhere like it. It's like a different world - peace and quiet reign. The cottage was beautifully furnished and had everything you could need - a fully fitted kitchen, balcony, TV , dvd player, books, Wi-Fi. There is even a washing machine and a tumble dryer available. Every home comfort is provided. Outside is spectacular with vines and banana trees. The large pool is beautiful with loungers and umbrellas. We spent every morning at the pool and sometimes returned for a swim later in the day. Buffy and Frank made us very welcome, as did the dogs who came to see us most days. The property is well within walking distance of the centre of Funchal and all amenities including supermarkets and restaurants. We've fallen in love with Casa do Feitor and hope to have many more holidays there. We really can't praise this beautiful property highly enough.

    Perfect in every way

    This was our first visit to Madeira and we found Casa Do Feitor to be perfect in every way. We felt so at home surrounded by the banana trees. Some days we were reluctant to open the gates and venture into the outside world. The owners, Buffy and Frank, are special people Phil and Hazel, Northampton UK

    A great place to stay and relax

    Our stay here was part of our 50th Wedding Anniversary celebrations. The accommodation here did not let us down. The comfortable apartment is fully equipped for self catering although there are many places to eat out close by. We had a car and although the entrance is a bit tight after a while presents no problem. Owners Frank and Buffy made us most welcome. We would definitely recommend this property.

    Congratulations again on your Golden Wedding and delighted that part of your celebrations were with us. We do advise guests to hire a small car which is easier to drive into our entrance gate. Yes, guests comment on our central location where we re surrounded by many restaurants within walking distance. Many thanks for your comments.
    Clean spacious and comfortable
    Apart from a couple of niggles, which could have been avoided had the owners, who were on holiday, left someone on site to ensure that guests were OK, this is a def recommend from us. Do not, like us, make the mistake in hiring a car, unless you are a professional driver, or a masochist, or own an Insurance Company. The only access to the cottages is so difficult that we elected to largely stay on site, as the thought of having to return through the entrance spoiled any excursions

    We were sorry to be away during your stay and had sent you an e-mail advising you about our absence and giving you various phone numbers to call should you have any problems. There is also a welcome handbook in the cottage asking you to contact various people with any queries. Our employee, Ivone, was on the premises Monday to Friday and would have been able to help. Our entrance is rather narrow but it was an existing gateway when we restored the cottages and could not be changed. Most people with a car do not have a problem. Many of our guests do not hire a car as we are so central with so many amenities, especially restaurants, within walking distance and local transport is excellent. For walking, which Madeira is renowned for, it is often easier to take a bus and be able to walk from A to B and get a bus home, rather than having to retrace your steps back to your car. Taxis are very reasonable too. Thank you for recommending us and we hope to be able to personally welcome you back
    Perfect hideaway
    Based on previous reviews these cottages had a lot to live up to! We stayed for, sadly, only one week in Casa das Vinhas. It certainly lived up to every one of our high expectations. Right from the start, walking up through the vines and bananas to our front door, we felt instantly at home. The surroundings are lovely, private, calming. The cottage itself didn't really feel like a rental property, more like someones little home we had borrowed. A lovely atmosphere. Everything there we could want. We swam, laid by the pool, drank wine on our patio, generally chilled out.....exactly what we needed and this cottage delivered it in spades !! The sea, Funchal's shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance. We didn't have a car and didn't miss one. The owners, Frank and Buffy were away for the first few days of our stay but came to see us once they returned to ensure all was well and were we happy and did we need anything. That was such a kind personal touch which made us feel so welcome. They also came to say goodbye when we left. Its not often that we say this but we would definately return to Madeira and without doubt we would return to "our" Casa.

    Lovely pool, beautiful gardens, tranquil location
    The cottages were set in beautiful gardens and we loved listening to the birds singing away while lazing by the pool. The gardens were also very nice with a mixture of grape vine, banana plantations and an abundance of bright, brilliant flowers. So pretty. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the terrace every morning and a post dinner drink in the evening. I suppose it helps that we had glorious weather and not a drop of rain during our stay. I love older properties and both the cottages, the Quinta and its grounds oozed old world charm. We found the owners to be very pleasant. On hand when you needed to ask them questions but not at all intrusive so very easy to relax. The cottages were cleaned at the end of the first week and all towels and bedding were changed. The only niggle some might have is that you could hear distant traffic noise. We live in an area where there is no passing traffic so I'm used to total silence at night and am a very light sleeper. Therefore I closed the bedroom windows at night. Not a problem in May but I could imagine the cottages could be quite warm during the summer months. I'm sure most people could however leave the windows open at night and not be disturbed by the traffic noise. Perhaps at some point, air conditioning could be installed in the bedroom, even if you have to pay extra for it locally? The cottages provided everything we needed for a two week break. The kitchen was small but we only eat snacks and breakfasts in the cottage anyway so suited us fine. Lots of wonderful restaurants within walking distance of the cottages, which was an unexpected bonus. Excellent value for money and I would return again.

    Thank you to Buffy and Frank for a very comfortable stay in the delightful Loja da Lenha. The accomodation is light and spacious. It is tastefully decorated and well equiped. The Quinta is well located near the centre of Funchal giving good access to all parts of the island yet provides a haven from the busy surroundings. Buffy and Frank are excellent hosts. Both welcoming and attentive but not intrusive.

    Perfect Retreat, really peaceful & relaxing
    stayed here in September 2013. These cottages are a perfect retreat, really peaceful and relaxing we had the lovely large pool to ourselves some of the time. But even when all 3 cottages were occupied there were only 6 of us sharing the pool and there were plenty of sun umbrellas and sun beds. Each cottage also has a patio area or a balcony. The patio areas have a table and 4 chairs and sun umbrellas which made it ideal for eating outside in an idyllic location surrounded by banana trees and vines. All 3 cottages are decorated and furnished to a high standard. Casa Das Vinhas where we stayed was very well equipped, with ample storage. Frank and Buffy are perfect hosts who helped make our stay very pleasant, we were made to feel very welcome from the start. They were both very helpful answering any questions and dealing with a couple of minor issues we had. The cottages are close to the centre of Funchal, where there is a good selection of restaurants and bars. Madeira is a beautiful but hilly island, but if you don't want to walk there are plenty of buses and taxis. The views from the cable car are excellent.

    Accommodation is clean, well finished and spacious, great for a relaxing break away. Perfect location, central and no need for a car. Swimming pool is a real bonus, brilliant for lazy days around the pool. A choice of restaurants within a 5/10min walk. A lovely week away.

    Casa Do Feitor- The Factor's House
    What can we say that hasn't already been said before, what a wonderful apartment, facilities and location! We booked after a recommendation from a friend who stayed in one of the other apartments this July. I think that Casa Do Feitor is the best of the three options, as being upstairs you get the fantastic views with light and airy rooms, not to mention the private covered veranhah. The apartment was spotless and fitted with everything you could really wish for. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. One of the many helpful guides in the apartment was a comment book written by previous guests with plenty of recommendations on places to eat and visit. We found it very helpful. We hired a car for a week but it wasn't really necessary, you can walk into Funchal easily, there is so much to see and do. If you are thinking of visiting Madeira then any of these apartments are a must! Thankyou for a fabulous stay on a very beautiful Island, if we get the chance to come again WE WILL!

    We were so sorry we were away and so unable to meet you but delighted that you enjoyed your stay. I am sure your comments will be useful to prospective guests. People find the guest book comments and tips very helpful, though we are normally on hand to give any advice or suggestions if we are asked.
    Regular visitors to Madeira
    We spent our second week in Madeira at the Casa de Feitor. Our first floor accommodation was excellent. The accommodation is set within a working banana and grape producing property and has been tastefully converted from old working buildings. The surroundings are peaceful and it is hard to believe the centre of Funchal is only a short walk away (the hill to the property is not for the faint hearted) The accommodation is smart and comfortable kitchen well equiped with modern cooker, micro and dishwasher. Bed comfortable and everything clean.We almost had the pool and garden to ourselves as the other tennants were out and about most of the week. But had the other two properties been fully occupied there was plenty of room for everyone to be quiet and private.The owners were away during our visit, but one small problem was quickly sorted out by the agents. We have no negative comments and really enjoyed our stay. Suggestions: We choose self catering accommodation because my husband likes to cook local dishes when on holiday. For us a couple of extra oven proof dishes would have been useful. We were also anxious about hot dishes on the glass table. We were lucky in that the weather was really warm and pleasant but Madeira can be cool and rainy at times so a TV can be handy. Unfortunately I have poor eyesight and found the small screen of the TV almost impossible to watch unless I sat directly in front of it.

    We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and sorry to have missed you, but we were in London. We are glad that you appreciated the privacy of the pool and garden, which we feel are rather special. We are also very happy that in our absence our agent quickly sorted out your minor problem.
    Excellent apartment close to shops, etc.
    We stayed in the upstairs apartment of this complex which allowed us to have great views over the capital of Funchal and the sea. We were met by the owner on arrival, who is really nice, and showed us around the complex and property. The facilities were exactly as described and the property was nicely furnished, clean and well equiped. It even had a really good fan oven which we found unusual for properties overseas. We could only find BBC world service to watch on the tv and it might have benefited from an i-pod docking station. Otherwise a fantastic apartment. Being on a small banana plantation made it very unique and added to its charm. The only thing to be aware of if you have a hire car, make sure it is a small one - perhaps no bigger than Class C - as the entrance is VERY narrow and can be a challenge. Being close to the town centre was a dream and you could walk to the centre of Funchal or the "hotel area" which had lots of shops and numerous restaurants - all within a 15 minute walk. Alternatively you were relatively close to the main roads allowing you to explore the island by car. We really liked the cable car trip from Funchal to Monte where you can see the tobaggons that travel on the road; the caves near St. Vincent; and Port Montiz (where you can see the Atlantic Ocean with all its power); the views looking down onto Nuns Valley; and the dinner and dance show at the Casino (15 minutes walk from the complex). We would highly recommend it.

    Very many thanks and we are delighted that you had such an enjoyable time with us. We do actually have two TV systems installed in all the cottages. Cable has over 100 channels, which includes the BBC World Service, but we also have a satellite dish which covers all the BBC and ITV channels available from UK, amongst others. We look forward to having you back!
    A very special place.
    I'm rather reluctant to comment on Casa do Feitor at all; I would prefer to keep it a secret. That being said, this is a very exceptional place to stay. As other reviews have stated, it does have everything one could reasonably wish, provided to a very high standard. The location is also exceptional, somehow combining the tranquility of an almost rural retreat with the convenience of immediate access to the city centre (an easy walk into town often got the juices going for a delicious meal in one of the local resturants). I really can't imagine a better place from which to explore the powerful beauty of Madeira.

    Perfect
    We spend 2 weeks in May 2009 in the casa de feitor and we were absolutely delighted. Pictures can't show how beautiful and perfect this place is for a holiday. The apartment was perfectly clean and in the best condition one can imagine. Rooms are quite spacious but not lacking the coziness you need to relax and unwind. The kitchen is well equipped. The biggest asset of this place is its location in the middle of a banana plantation but only a short stroll from the city. To enjoy Funchal you don't need a car, but if you plan to explore the countryside (which you should) you'll we able to park the car inside the property in an absolutely safe place. The thick walls of the house helped to keep it cool in the day. From the windows you have a nice view on the city of funchal. The owners are charming and helpful, you really feel welcome in this house. Conclusion: This place is absolutely recommended! Chris
