Very beautiful little cottages

9/ 10

Very nice place : three little cottages in a big garden. We had the smallest, Cedro, which is perfect for two people : a living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. And a privative terrace (with BBQ, sunbath chairs..), separated from the other houses by vegetation. View on the sea, very calm. Really paradisiac!! Very nice owners, who would let a basket with fresh eggs, fruits vegetables and herbs... Just not easy to find (and very steep road to get there!!) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED PLACE!!!!!

Quinta sympa assez haut au-dessus de Funchal, au calme. Casa Tilia : confortable, spacieuse, 2 salles de bain, de beaux meubles anciens, cuisine correcte (un bémol : les poêles sont inutilisables), une terrasse agréable, avec un jardin splendide, un vrai jardin botanique. Accueil chaleureux, des oeufs maison, des fruits selon la saison. C'est la 3e fois que nous louons dans cette quinta t nous y reviendrons !

Quinta Devonia

Nous avons été bien accueilli à Quinta Devonia. Cependant, pour de l'agri-tourisme, le gîte est situé entre le stade de football (qui n'est pas très beau) et au-dessus de l'autoroute, et il y a beaucoup de bruit. Nous avions une belle terrasse couverte, mais aucune "vue" sur la mer. Le logement en lui-même était très bien.(Peut-être un peu trop chargé.) Je ne retournerais pas là car il a l'inconvénient d'être loin de Funchal, tout en ayant des nuisances sonores. Voilà.

Two weeks in paradise

9/ 10

Quinta Devonia is a wonderful place, a paradise-like garden with three nice cottages in it. We spent two weeks in Casa Tilia, and it was a very fine time. While weather was hot down there in funchal it was fresh and pleasant all the time at the quinta. Fruits and flowers where the eyes could see... I decided not to take a car, and I was happy about it because I didn't know HOW steep the streets are! It was no problem to get by bus to the quinta, and some times we went by taxi. I hoped we would find a little super market or a restaurant near the quinta, but it was all down in funchal, and if one drives cars a bit better than me I would recommend to take one. For a stay of two weks I sommetimes could have used an oven to bake something and some laundry equipment.

The view, location, house and garden are very beautiful. The host is very nice. The swimming pool is nice but not always available. The kitchen is not good for cooking, too small and old, it needs a long time to boil water.

Quinta Devónia - Uma refúgio natural

9/ 10

A Quinta Devónia é um refúgio natural que nos permite mergulhar na tranquilidade e beleza natural da madeira. O meio envolvente com os jardins lindissimos, as boas condições da casa e a simpatia dos responsáveis, permite desde logo sentirmo-nos em casa! Todo o processo de reserva decorreu igualmente sem problemas. Recomendamos, sempre!

It was a fine place. What is good to know. The estate is situated high above Funchal. Steep uphille with much turns. At the place it is much cooler than in Funchal.

Review of holiday cottage - Quinta Devonia

8/ 10

We were delighted with the cottage we found. Quiet & comfortable, with lovely luscious gardens - just what we were looking for! We found the owner - Martim - very friendly and helpful and his maid, Anna, gave lovely old fashioned service and looked after our needs. Also useful that this house is very near to the No 29 bus stop - a great help when you don't hire a car.

location du gîte Cedro très bien dans un site digne du Jardin botanique. Il faudrait prévoir une machine à laver le linge même commune aux 3 gîtes. A recommander

We stayed at the Quinta last February. "Our" house and the Quinta formed a little paradise. Lots of flowers, a nice terrace, no noise and a wonderful view on the ocean. We did not expect to find the Quinta that high above sealevel (about 600m) which means lower temperatures during the evening than in downtown Funchal. Advice: if you like to rent a car, take a diesel, because the road to Quinta Devonia (and not only that one!) is very steep. Our Opel Corsa was not powerful enough for that type of hills. We will remember Anna and her boss Martin as friendly promotors of Madeira and there is hope to meet them again

Tilia House

Dear Martim We would both like to thank you for our stay at Tilia. We had a really enjoyable time and loved the area. Being so close to levada walks was a great advantage. We did a great deal of walking and explored new places from out last visit in Madeira. Once again we thank you. Kind regards Linda and John

As Casinhas de Chocolate da Quinta Devonia

Não deve haver outro lugar tão parecido com um cenário do conto infantil como a Quinta Devónia: os três chalés de pedra escondidos pelo arvoredo imitam na perfeição a casinhas de chocolate da história de João e Maria. Ou serão o lar dos Sete Anões? Esta será a visão dos miúdos; para os adultos, a Quinta é um belíssimo refúgio no cimo de um monte sobranceiro ao Funchal. Seja qual for a nacionalidade é difícil não gostar do local, e também da privacidade que se obtém pelo simples facto das casas estarem imersas numa verdura frondosa, unidas por carreirinhos e escadas de pedra que ligam os socalcos onde se encontram.
