Countryside Hotel / Quinta
Casa das Hortensias
Nice cottage in the countryside
The "Casa das Hortensias" is a traditional and restored typical Madeiran home set on an apron of some of the island's most magnificent feast of colour and splendour on the rugged, vineyard terraced, and gloriously unspoilt greenery in the almost fairy-tale-like village of Arco de São Jorge.
The idyllic surroundings are ideal for those guests who wish to spend peaceful holidays, away from noisy city centres, or busy towns in a rustic, country terrain. The silence and quietness that reigns upon the house is a powerful invitation to relaxation and contemplation.
Long naps, lazy afternoons, quiet days and even plenty of time to read that book that you been meaning to finish for so long can be enjoyed easily and restfully here.
It is also a perfect start to meet the locals and their ways in Madeira. A way to discover the still authentic and original culture and traditions of old Madeira. Surrounding it there are many places to be visited and admired: the village centre of Arco de São Jorge itself, São Jorge next door, Santana, Faial, Porto da Cruz, Machico, Boa Ventura, Ponta Delgada, São Vicente, Seixal and Porto Moniz. Madeira's capital, Funchal, is only 45 kilometres away.
