Madeira Hotel - Casa Velha do Palheiro

Casa Velha do Palheiro is a Relais & Châteaux country house hotel, set within the award-winning Palheiro Gardens in the foothills of Funchal, which combines history, beauty and elegance.

The hotel has been lovingly restored from an 18th century hunting lodge and is now fully integrated into the 120 hectare Palheiro Nature Estate with its own par 72 championship golf course, a fully serviced spa with indoor and outdoor pools, and over 20 kilometres of nature trails, birdwatching, restaurants, bars and even a tea house.

Conveniently located close to town and only 20 minutes from the Madeira International airport, Casa Velha do Palheiro is perfectly situated to escape the hustle and bustle of urban life, a unique place to actively unwind, where the only noise you are likely to hear is birdsong…
