Quinta do Furão

Achado do Gramacho, Santana, Madeira, 9230-082, Portugal

Set on a cliff top on a working vineyard (you can help out with the harvest in autumn and taste a selection of Madeira in the wine cellar) and just a couple of minutes' walk from Madeira theme park, this modern three-story hotel with amazing views has recently been renovated. Take a top-floor sea-facing room for an awesome vantage point out to the sea and enjoy one of the north coast's best restaurants ($), in a separate building that shares the staggering views and serves deftly prepared regional specialties. You can walk off a meal along a coastal footpath that runs to the little village of São Jorge, a two-hour walk to the west.

PROS

  • delightful grounds overlook the vineyards and the sea
  • service is as impressive as the views

CONS

  • about 4 km (2½ miles) away from Santana's facilities
  • balconies are close together and so lack privacy
