Nature and Rose Garden Resort
Made up of 18 villas sharing an outdoor pool, the Quinta do Arco offers a peaceful and exclusive rural break. Its extensive collection of rose bushes fools you into thinking you’ve stumbled on an English garden in the centre of the Atlantic. Based in the north Madeira in the Arco of São Jorge, the Quinta enjoys views onto the Laurissilva Laurel Forest and the ocean.
The villas each have a bedroom, living room, a kitchenette and a patio or balcony, and all have cable television and free Wi-Fi. The standard Villas can accommodate a maximum of 2 adults and 1 child, whereas Deluxe Villas can accommodate up to four people.
Relax by the outdoor swimming pools or take a walk through the Jardim Das Rosas, which is home to over 1,700 species of roses and they are typically in bloom between April and December. For those looking for indoor pursuits, one of the main buildings has a cosy library and billiard room to while away the time.
This hotel’s tranquil, natural setting is perfect for those looking for an active holiday with a plethora of activities on your doorstep such as hiking, mountain-biking, nature trails, bird-watching and canyoning and the front desk can help you organise any of these activities.
The resort does not have a restaurant as the villas are equipped with kitchenettes; however there are local restaurants nearby.
The island’s compact size means that you can reach the airport in 30 minutes by car or Funchal’s city centre in only 50 minutes. The Quinta Do Arco has a free, private car park, so there’s no excuse not to jump in a car and explore this beautiful island!

Region & Cuisine
Madeira is a rich, beautiful island with experiences to cater to many tastes. With nearly two thirds of the island’s surface classified as a nature reserve, there is no shortage of beautiful natural scenery, and one of the most popular activities is the Levada and mountain hikes. These routes follow the 16th century ‘Levadas’ which are open air canals used to carry water from the dense forests and waterfalls to the island’s towns and cities. These hikes take you through some of the greenest parts of the island and you can marvel at the luscious laurel forests and picturesque waterfalls and the highest point is Pico Puivo at 1862 m above sea level.
For those looking for adventurous breaks, Madeira has a wealth of activities including diving, surfing, swimming with dolphins, boat trips, mountain-biking, canyoning and even coastal paragliding. Many of the island’s hotels have swimming pools so you’re never far from somewhere to cool off. Like many archipelagos, Madeira has a number of fascinating customs and delicacies that are unique to the island. The toboggan rides through the city of Funchal, where people barrel down steep hills in large wicker baskets aided by ‘drivers’ in boater hats, is an intriguing sight to behold, and an exhilarating experience.
As an island nation, seafood plays a huge role in Madeira’s gastronomy, but its mild year-round climate creates the perfect conditions to grow delicious produce such as bananas, pineapples and sugar cane. One of the island’s traditional drinks is ‘Poncha’ made with brandy cane sugar, lemons and honey and no trip is complete without sampling some traditional Madeira wine.
Madeira enjoys pleasant weather throughout most the year with averages of 25ºC in the summer and 15 to 17ºc in the winter, making it the perfect destination for some winter sun. The island also happens to be famous for its spectacular New Year’s Eve celebrations with a large fireworks display lighting up Funchal’s bay at midnight.
How to get to Madeira?
