Absolutlely wonderful!
Not only have the Garton's the most wonderful and vast orchid garden, should be visited. We had a wonderful holiday there. Advertised is the RHS Magazine, is a cottage within the gardens, with it's own private garden. We had a week there and have booked to go back next year. The cottage is very reasonably priced, very well equipped (even down to Sat. T.V. including U.K) and comfortable. Patrick and his mother, the estate housekeeper Serena are extremely hospitable and accommodating, and arrange transfers, taxis etc with known reliable people. Not for families and for night life, but quiet, for 'chilling-out' couples who enjoy good accommodation and good scenery. Taxis to town and No. 32 bus back recommended, but well worth the few euros or so. Relatively undiscovered, this is a GEM!

Do not go here if you do not love orchids! The selection of orchids, some varieties of which are for sale, is simply astounding, and some of them are beautifully scented. The dazzling array includes the "jade vine", which is worth the visit in itself.

As the name implies, the grounds have superb views over the city of Funchal.

A very good range and some beautiful examples but they almost grow wild on the island.

Stunning orchid nursery hidden behind a wall in the middle of a residential area. Couldn`t believe our eyes after we walked down the path to the shade houses and saw all the colours of the gorgeous plants. Lovely tea and cake in the garden overlooking Funchal.
