“Charm on the island of flowers”
Maître de Maison
- Celeste 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.
