Holiday Rental House
Quinta Girassol is a beautiful restored old quinta, with large gardens, heated swimming pool and direct sea-view, tucked into the hillside above the south coast village of Ponta do Sol, known as one of the sunniest places on the island. It is without doubt the perfect holiday retreat and gives you the beauty and tranquillity of the Madeiran countryside, yet only a 25 minute drive to the hustle and bustle of the capital, Funchal. Entrance is via a large covered hacienda with dining table and chairs for dining al-fresco, and comfy wicker chairs for relaxing with a glass of wine. On the ground floor you have the traditionally furnished lounge with comfortable sofa, armchairs, plasma TV and DVD player. The well-equipped kitchen with adjoining dining area opens directly onto the front terrace....Quinta Girassol is a beautiful restored old quinta, with large gardens, heated swimming pool and direct sea-view, tucked into the hillside above the south coast village of Ponta do Sol, known as one of the sunniest places on the island.

Quinta Girassol is a very attractive villa set high up, with a beautiful view of the garden and pool, and the ocean beyond. We had a very relaxing holiday there. We hired a car to travel around the island, as the villa is quite secluded.
