The property is currently run as a small hotel with 10 rooms, but could easily be converted into a family residence with staff quarters.
The accomodation is split between two main buildings; the main Quinta with reception room, living room, dining room and kitchen, and five bedroom suites and the "Casa Amarelo" (Yellow house) which houses four independent suites.
There is also a self-catering stone cottage which can be rented out or used as staff quarters.
The Quinta is situated in the traditional area of Madeiran "Quintas" (manor estates) in Santo da Serra. It was built by the Farra family in 1930, and burnt down/abandonned by the owners in order to avoid illegal occupation after the revolution of 25 April 1974.
Only in 1993 was it acquired by the Pontes family and has been lovingly restored in 2007. The Quinta offers peace and quiet amidst luxurious vegetation, centennial trees, and in its gardens with exotic flowers.
The hotel is elegantly deocrated in warm colours and feels immediately welcoming.
All 9 rooms ensuite in the two houses are brightly decorated, comfortable and offer lush garden and mountain views from their private balconies. The rooms have central heating.
The one-bedroom stone cottage also has its own kitchenentte. Support buildings include equipment rooms, laundry, maid's room, etc.
