 QUINTA SERRA GOLFE, near Santa Cruz, Madeira

THE PAST:

This quinta has belonged to the same family for four generations, even though its role has changed from private house, to a tea house in the 1940s, later clubhouse for the nearby golf course of Santo de Serra and now estalagem - an ‘inn’ or small hotel. Dating from the 1920s, the building’s architectural features and historic value led to it being classified as of ‘Local Interest’ in 1999; and in that year, a major refurbishment began. It opened as a hotel in 2001.

THE PRESENT:

This family-run quinta offers a warm welcome, comfortable accommodation and a home-from-home atmosphere, accentuated by tradition.

THE PLACE FOR YOU?

It is ideally placed for keen golfers, just 100m from the Santo da Serra Golf Course, where guests get special prices - as they do at Palheiro Golf. Walkers who choose this hotel will be well-rewarded, too: it's situated in the picturesque village of Santo da Serra, surrounded by dense, UNESCO World Heritage Site laurisilva forest. Not only biologically diverse and of great ecological value, this is also spectacularly scenic – and can be enjoyed from numerous levadas - or water-courses – and veredas - or footpaths – both of which are a feature of this island. The hotel is also only 10 minutes from the beach of Santa Cruz – the centre for wind-surfing on the island – and 20 minutes from the capital, Funchal.

THE PROPERTY IN DETAIL:

RELAXING
Two lounges and a library ensure that there are comfortable corners in which to curl up after an active day.

EATING & DRINKING
Breakfast, traditional afternoon tea and candle-lit dinners are served in da Avó Micas restaurant - formerly the dining room for the tea house, Casa de Chá do Santo da Serra. Recipes handed down through the family, such as a velvety onion soup, are given a touch of modern Madeira gastronomy.
Quinta Serra Golfe is a two-minute walk from an old stone shelter, which sells traditional cider fresh from the barrel.

SLEEPING
The 18 spacious Double rooms are in the hotel’s new wing. The two Junior Suites are in the main building; one has a private balcony.

There’s also a second bathroom and a living room, with a kitchenette and fireplace – making it an ideal choice for families.

Hotel guests get special prices at the 27-hole Santo da Serra Golf Course, the official home of the Madeira Open Tournament, ewhich is just 100m way – and also at Palheiro Golf.
