1905 Zino's Palace

1905 Zino's Palace

This majestic pink building is one of the centerpieces of Madeira's cultural heritage. Originally the summer residence of the noble Zino family, later an elementary school and now an intimate hotel and in a beautiful location. 1905 Zino's Palace is located in the picturesque village of Ponta do Sol surrounded by banana plantations, exotic flowers and mountains rising from the ocean. Nowhere does the sun shine as much as in Ponta do Sol (which literally means "sun point"), allowing you to enjoy long dinners while overlooking the sea. Perfect right?
