A real sensory experience
"As soon as you arrive at the Casa Velha do Palheiro, relaxation is guaranteed as you're surrounded by the beautiful gardens and hundred-year-old trees. The golf course has a breathtaking view of Funchal town and the ocean, immediately inviting you to have a game. The exclusive, tranquil atmosphere offers a truly sensual experience."
Succumb to the charms of our comfortable bar on your return from a game of golf or a visit of the island. After a full day and an aperitif, enjoy a refined dinner in our Dining Room. The menu offered by our chef enables you to try dishes made from regional produce, accompanied by Portuguese wines, and above all, the celebrated Madeira wine.

A perfect sense of "Well-Being"
The perfect plan begins with a trip to Palheiro Gardens for an experience filled with colours and scents, followed by a walk across the pedestrian paths of the Palheiro Estate, with an unobstructed view of the countryside. To finish, the Palheiro Spa provides a pleasant interlude with a personalised relaxation massage.
