The Quinta Jardins do Lago is an elegant hotel with a rich history.
Built in the 18th Century, it was once the home of Viscount William Beresford, Field-Marshall to the Duke of Wellington during the Napoleonic wars. Nowadays, the Quinta is a luxurious hotel with thirty-one double rooms and nine suites, all overlooking a beautiful botanical garden with over 500 different tree and plant species. The quinta’s Beresford restaurant offers first class Portuguese and international cuisine, and it’s a short taxi ride into the centre of Funchal where you’ll find some of the best restaurants on Madeira.
If you’d like easy access to the centre of Funchal but with an escape from the hustle and bustle in the evenings, then Quinta Jardins do Lago is an excellent choice. It has private parking facilities, so you can have your car delivered to the hotel and be ready to explore the island of Madeira.
Most of our guided activities begin in Funchal: our guided tours, cycling trips, and guided hikes. The quinta is also a good option if you’d like to go whale watching from the marina in Funchal.
