“Charm on the island of flowers”
Maître de Maison - Celeste Monteiro Ringertz
On the island of Madeira the “Pearl of the Atlantic”, the Casa Velha do Palheiro welcomes you from its setting above the busy city of Funchal. The original building was a hunting lodge built by the Conde de Carvalhal in 1804 and fully restored in 1997. The Casa Velha is a haven of calm surrounded by the famous Palheiro gardens and the 72 par Palheiro golf course. It’s an ideal place to unwind, enjoy the gardens and walk the levadas (irrigation channels) in the foothills above the Estate. Relax in the Spa, play golf and lunch at the Club House overlooking the Atlantic or visit Funchal for a glass of Madeira at the Wine Lodges and check out the Casa Velha motor yacht “Balancal” lying in the marina.

Discover the hotel

Located in the hills to the east of Funchal, the Casa Velha do Palheiro is a haven of peacefulness for those who like a unique lifestyle. A game of golf at the beautiful Palheiro Golf course just metres from the hotel, or a walk across the famous Palheiro Gardens with a stop-off at the Tea House are just a few examples of the thousand-and-one ways to fully make the most of your stay. For a stay focussed on relaxation and well-being, the Palheiro Spa offers a range of massages and treatments in private spaces. For the more energetic guest, there are tennis courts available, as well as a gym, and even the M.Y.  Balancal boat for deep-sea fishing. To end the day, our restaurant offers romantic candlelit dinners with an à la carte menu, carefully prepared by our team of chefs.
