Welcome to the Palheiro Nature Estate - Madeira Island

Palheiro Nature Estate on Madeira Island enjoys a beautiful hillside location with stunning views of the ocean and the city of Funchal. Since it was acquired by the Blandy family in 1885, successive generations have managed the transition from traditional farming to leisure based activities.

This strong tradition of hospitality and quality continues in all areas today, from golf and the hotel to the gardens and flower business; from real estate to property management and even the sports motor cruiser. The names of Blandy and Palheiro are synonymous with quality on Madeira Island and beyond.

Palheiro Nature

Within the 150 hectare Palheiro Estate we have created nature trails for your pleasure. These can be enjoyed on bikes, for running, hiking or just a simple stroll in nature. We please ask you to respect others’ enjoyment of the Estate and to be quiet near the golfers.

The landscape of Palheiro Estate in now very different after the fires on July 18th 2012, when a large amount of forest was destroyed. Since then, with the help of government funding, we have begun a huge reforestation programme planting indigenous Madeira species such as; Til, Barbusano & Laurel, as well as the removal of invasive trees that were introduced to the Island - Mimosa and Eucalyptus. The result is a landscape offering stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Desertas islands, the bay of Funchal and the mountains of Madeira.

On your walks keep an eye out for some of our wildlife such as the rare “Trocaz” Pigeons and the Macaronesian Sparrowhawk.

All our trails begin and end at the Palheiro Golf clubhouse where you can enjoy spectacular sunsets and the wonderful views over the bay of Funchal.
