The Casa Velha do Palheiro sits in an unrivalled hillside location high above Funchal, capital of Madeira Island giving stunning views over the city, harbour and ocean below.
The boutique country house hotel is a 200 year old hunting lodge built by the 1st Count of Carvalhal. He imported exotic trees and plants from around the world to stock the extensive gardens. The Folly he built on the estate’s highest point – today part of the golf course – is now its symbol.
The 33 bedrooms and 5 suites all perfectly convey the history, beauty and elegance of the Palheiro Estate. Each room combines classic, bespoke design with contemporary flourishes and is appointed to the very highest standards of comfort and luxury. Warm, dark-coloured hardwood furnishings and floral-patterned drapes and bedware combine to illustrate a graceful and discerning interior replete with sprays of fresh flowers, large mirrors and framed prints of rare and beautiful flora.
The hotel’s award-winning restaurant is highly regarded, and a deserved gourmet reference point. Guests enjoy the evening atmosphere by candlelight in the elegant dining room. Breakfast is served in the sun filled conservatory.
The Palheiro Spa, a short walk from the reception, features a veritable array of treatments and beauty therapies. The facilities include heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools, Turkish bath and sauna plus a smart gymnasium which further enhances the wellbeing experience.
Lying adjacent to the hotel is one of Europe’s most beautiful golf courses, the championship Palheiro course. The layout meanders its way through a pristine environment of maritime pine and botanical woodland embroidered with lush, sub-tropical vegetation. At nearly 500 metres above sea level, the location is blessed with dramatic views of Madeira’s mountainous skyline and the vast Atlantic Ocean. Nestling below just 10 minutes away is Funchal, the island’s capital. Designed by renowned golf architect Cabell B. Robinson, the picturesque layout takes full advantage of the hilly terrain, with abrupt ridges and deep valleys providing a compelling challenge.
