With 37 rooms and suites, Casa Velha do Palheiro retains the charm and hospitality that have become its trademark over the centuries.
Today, this magnificent establishement lacks nothing in terms of comfort and the amenities are what you would expect from a 5* hotel and member of the prestigious “Relais & Chateaux” group.
Casa Velha’s style is refined yet exquisitely comfortable and the ambiance harks back to the hotel’s original use as a summer house for the 1st Count of Carvalhal from 1804 onwards.
Peace and tranquility are guaranteed, apart from perhaps the odd noise from the stunning 18 hole Palheiro golf course just next door.
Take a stroll in the gardens, soak up the sun by the pool or pamper yourself in the on-site sauna and steam room.
Dining at this 5 star hotel in Madeira is equally divine: the restaurant offers garden views and the finest Portuguese and international cuisine served up by a stellar team of chefs.
You could be forgiven for never leaving Casa Velha do Palheiro and its wonderful surroundings; however, Madeira is a paradise destination if you love sun and sea.
The coast is just minutes away and for something more active, enquire about the hotel’s private yacht, moored in the main marina of Funchal. This can be used for cruises and deep sea fishing, as well as dolphin and whale watching.
Discovering the unspoilt island of Madeira doesn’t get any more comfortable, luxurious or 5 star than at Casa Velha do Palheiro!
