The Quinta Casa Velha do Palheiro was built just over 200 years ago as a hunting lodge and, more recently, sensitively transformed into an exquisite country house hotel - one of the very best in Madeira. The famous Palheiro Botanical Gardens are adjacent and guests have direct and free access. The hotel is the perfect choice for those who love nature and enjoy the long scenic levada walks. It is also especially appealing to golfers, who benefit from reductions at the 18-hole Palheiro championship course next door.
High up in the hills above Funchal, this peaceful hotel has splendid views and a magnificent garden where the fresh air is scented with pinnes and the silece broken only by birdsong.
Gourmet cuisine is served in the formal and elegant dining room, expertly prepared by the hotel's chef and his team, blending traditional Portuguese dishes with French influence. Funchal is 7km and, whilst there is a courtesy busy twice a day, a hire car would be an asset.
