Luxury Holidays At Quinta da Casa Branca

The British ancestors of Quinta da Casa Branca’s owners, the Leacock family, first used this estate to grow vines and banana trees, and later, the family went on to be one of Madeira's largest producers of wine until 1925. With such a beautiful location, it is perhaps not a surprise that this estate’s destiny was to become home to one of Madeira’s finest properties. Opened in 1998, architect João Favila Menezes designed a unique boutique hotel, encapsulating a modern sense of elegance that blends in seamlessly with the wonderfully lush surrounding gardens.

The gardens are truly divine, and guests are continuously left smitten by days wandering verdant paths bursting with greenery. Dining is a pleasure at the hotel’s restaurant, set in a twentieth century building with a lavishly appointed dining room, while lunch and breakfast are served in the serene Garden Pavilion. Located just a ten minute drive from the old city of Funchal, there are plenty of reasons to get out and about, though lounging by heated outdoor pool, listening to the sound of nature, you may not feel like venturing very far at all.

City Highlights

Named after the Portuguese word for fennel (funcho) - the wild, yellow herb that cloaked the landscape when colonists first arrived five-hundred years ago - Funchal is a charming old town. Discover its twisting backwaters and fascinating museums; its atmospheric bars and restaurants selling local delights and sweet Madeira wine. There are hip and trendy spots, too, with spinning DJs and bartenders serving up top tunes and cocktails. Something not-to-miss is Funchal's market, housed in a huge Art Deco building. Feast your eyes on Funchal's architecture, then admire the masses of tropical flowers, piles of gleaming fish, colourful ceramics and ladies in traditional dress.


Quinta da Casa Branca is small, secluded and special; an award-winning boutique hotel very different from the tower-style properties on the coast. One of the pools is exclusively for adults, the dining is à la carte, there's a zen-like spa and a gorgeous choice of rooms. Best of all are the gardens, a botanical oasis overflowing with exotic trees and an explosion of colourful plants. Species like Giant Indian Rubber Trees, African Tulip Trees, Norfolk Pines, Pink Snowball, Caracas Big-Leaf, Mexican Breadfruit, Bamboo, Wisteria, Bougainvillaea and iconic Birds of Paradise, Madeira's national emblem. It's a setting that promises to spark romance.

Spa & Wellness

The Phytocéane Spa at Quinta da Casa Branca was inspired by the tranquil surroundings of the property and, along with treatments, guests can enjoy the Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and relaxation room, or work out at the gym with a top of the range selection Technogym machines and equipment. There is also a tennis club nearby, a five minute drive away, which guests may use for a fee.
