The Hotel Quinta da Penha de Franca is a hotel of two halves.

The original manor house is known as Quinta da Penha, and has a cosy, traditional-Portuguese feel surrounded by beautiful gardens – of the seventy-six rooms, our favourites are the balcony rooms overlooking the gardens. The more modern half of the hotel is the Penha Franca Mar with thirty-three sea view rooms (which also overlook the outdoor pool). There are two excellent restaurants, one for each wing of the hotel – and there’s a nice selection of café bars and local restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel. The seafront Avenida Sa Carneiro is also five-minute’s walk away – it’s a pleasant way to stroll in and out of the centre of the city, (or it’s just five minutes by taxi).



Air conditioning











Of all our hotels , Quinta Penha Franca has the easiest walk into the centre of Funchal: it’s five minutes down to the seafront Avenida (the Avenida Sa Carneiro) which leads you directly into town. You’re also very close to the ferry terminal, if you’re thinking of including a stay on the neighbouring island of Porto Santo.


Most of our guided activities begin in Funchal: our guided tours, cycling trips, and guided hikes. Quinta Penha Franca is also a good option if you’d like to go whale watching from the marina in Funchal.
