From February the 12th it will be possible to stay in the new Boutique Hotel, the 1905 Zino’s Palace, located in the parish of Ponta do Sol. The hotel has nine rooms, a restaurant, outdoor pool, bar and a large patio with terrace areas, for what the hotel describes as a completely exclusive and elegant experience.
The building is one of the few romantic-style buildings in Madeira, making it a quintessential example of the archipelago’s architectural heritage.
The Palace and the attached chapel, the Chapel of Santo António, were built in the late 19th century to be used as a summer home for the Zino family, thus taking advantage of the excellent climate of the area. Later the palace was used by the state as an Agriculture school as well as a Primary School.
Abandoned since 1976, the regional government decided in 2002 to start a restoration programme to create an events venue. So the name was changed from “Palacete dos Zinos” to “Palacete do Lugar de Baixo.”
Furthermore, the restoration and enhancement of the Palacete dos Zinos and the Chapel of Santo António, has allowed the property to be returned to its former glory in both its history and stunning architecture.
The project is managed by Amazing Evolution, considered by the World Travel Awards as the Best Boutique Hotel management in Europe and the World (2018 and 2019).
For Valentine’s Day, the hotel is offering couples with two nights’ accommodation including buffet breakfast and a romantic dinner with live music for €233.
Reservations can be made via firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning the hotel reception on 00351 291600123.
