When I stepped into the hotel’s garden, once again I realized that I should listen to my husband more often… It was him who suggested the Quinta do Furão Hotel in Santana as one of the options for our own wedding in Madeira. As I always thought we would get married in Funchal, I did not give this option a chance. But now I know that Quinta do Furão would have probably been one of the strongest contenders.
Wedding venue: Quinta do Furão in Santana, Madeira Island
Is hotel Quinta do Furão a nice place to stay in Madeira? Definitely. I shared the review of our stay in our previous post:
I was not the only one who really enjoyed the place- hundreds of other visitors had the same experience:
In this post, however, I would like to focus on weddings at the Quinta do Furão hotel, which a local consultant can help you organize.

Quinta do Furão – Garden wedding ceremony with a priceless view
The north coast of Madeira is different from the densely populated south. The coast is more dramatic, green, wild and simply breathtaking. Thanks to its location above one of the high cliffs Quinta do Furão is one of the most uniquely located hotels with an amazing view of the north coast of Madeira.
Wedding at the viewpoint between grapevines
Quinta do Furão consists of two buildings – the hotel and the restaurant. They are divided by a small garden/grapevines field with an adjacent viewpoint.
A small wedding ceremony can take place on the viewpoint in front of the hotel. The bride can enter walking down the actual isle between the grapevines. And with such a view, who needs expensive floral arrangements and altars..?
Wedding at the Jardim do Lagar Garden
The second option, equally beautiful, greener and suitable for ceremonies of all sizes is the Jardim do Lagar garden.
Jardim do Lagar means Grape Press Garden and it’s called like that for a reason. In the middle of the garden, you will find a large, old grape press, which is a real attraction.
The wedding dinner can also take place in the garden, and it is definitely possible to set up a tent. In case of bad weather, Quinta do Furão offers many other indoor or partly roofed options in the hotel, restaurant or bar under the restaurant.
Cocktail hour in the hotel garden/patio
Drinks between the ceremony and the wedding dinner can take place, for example, on the patio or the lawn in front of the hotel.
Hotel Quinta do Furão specializes in events. Is a popular wedding hotel among locals, but also foreign guests.
Altars for smaller wedding ceremonies can be prepared by the hotel and unlike some other hotels abroad, Quinta do Furão does not charge additional fees for renting a ceremony venue if a party or wedding dinner is held at the hotel.

Wedding Hotel Quinta do Furão – recommended for…
Most of the wedding venues in Madeira are located, in the area of Funchal. The weather in Madeira is often better just off the south coast, which gives the Quinta do Furão Hotel a slightly weaker position in low season. That is why Hotel Quinta do Furão is especially recommended for weddings planned for the summer season.
On the other hand, the location, the views, and charming atmosphere give Quinta a strong advantage. The views are magical, both from the gardens, restaurants and hotel rooms. The service is professional and helpful. The atmosphere at Quinta do Furão is truly something else. It reminds me of American wineries, resorts where everyone feels at home, away from the hustle of a big city, surrounded by nature. It will be hard to find such a place in the main city of the island – Funchal.
Getting to Santana from Funchal or from the airport will offer guests an amazing opportunity to see northern Madeira, so dramatically stunning and beautiful… I believe that this great venue will a dream venue for many eloping couples.
