Quinta Mãe do Homens Garden Village is a very charming small resort within the grounds of a private Quinta (Farm), beautifully situated on the hillside overlooking the centre of Funchal with superb views across the town to the harbour and the sea. There are two buildings of apartments, The Garden Apartments and The Wine Press Apartments and the Family Villa, surrounded by the Quinta's stunning gardens, with beautiful Madeirian flowers, trees and cultivated lands with its own flora of Madeira and tropical fruit trees.
The Wine Press Apartments are situated in the area of the former wine press. This is the reason for its name. The wine press was last used for making Madeira wine in 1975. It is now re-constructed and displayed at the entrance to the apartments.
The Garden Apartments are situated where the greenhouses for fruit and vegetables were and the Family Villa is situated in the middle of the gardens.
The apartments have superb sea views over the bay of Funchal or partial sea view with garden access.
The swimming pool was harmoniously integrated in this Quinta in 1992, with it bearing in mind its rich history and natural beauty.
