The Quinta da Serra mansion on the Portuguese flower island of Madeira dates back to 1800 and belonged to the then British consul.
In 2002 the quinta was converted into a hotel and changed hands in 2013. Since then, the house has been continuously converted into an organic hotel and now has a modern part of the building in addition to the old building. The house is beautifully situated over 800 meters above sea level in the middle of a tropical garden.
The building shines bright pink towards the guests and their spirits rise immediately. All around is the garden with endless flowers and birds and a wonderful view of the valley and towards the sea. The hotel has a total of 52 rooms, a large spa area with a covered pool and a modern organic restaurant. The rooms are large and decorated in light natural colors, high-quality wooden furniture completes the classic style.
The menu in the "Green Valley" restaurant is based on the current harvest from the farm and is put together anew every day accordingly. The fresh fish dishes, salads with blossoms and delicious desserts are particularly popular. There is always a large selection of vegetarian dishes. In addition to the restaurant, two bars invite you to linger. In the morning there is a large breakfast buffet with fresh fruit, juices and muesli.
Madeira is wonderfully green at any time of the year and the impressive volcanic landscapes invite you to explore extensively. The capital Funchal is located at a port and also impresses with lush green gardens.
