The island of Madeira is often described as a garden suspended in the Atlantic. And it makes total sense. All across the territory, there are many places where Nature surprises us with its unique exuberance. The municipality of Câmara de Lobos is home to one of these places: the Quinta do Jardim da Serra, which is currently a 5-star Bio Hotel.
This site is located in the parish of Jardim da Serra, the youngest parish on the island of Madeira. According to some authors, the name of this site derives from the estate located there, built in the 19th century by the English consul Henry Veitch.
The sumptuousness of the garden created there eventually gave Quinta do Jardim da Serra its name and fame. Its botanical richness has attracted a great deal of attention over the centuries. Not only have the island's natural trees been preserved here, but various other species from around the world have also been planted. Of these, we highlight the eucalyptus that can still be found at the entrance; with 200 years of age and a height of 64 meters, it leaves no one indifferent.
It is, even today, a place famous for the rare splendour of the Nature that surrounds it.
Quinta do Jardim da Serra was built in the 19th century by the English consul Henry Veitch. Visitors are, even today, surprised by the vivacity and sumptuousness of its landscaped areas.
