Villas Palheiro Estate

A select number of villa plots are also available for development near the Golf Clubhouse; Palheiro Real Estate offers a full turn-key service to assist you in creating your dream villa.

Palheiro Village – Property Rentals

A range of fully furnished villas and apartments are also available for holiday rentals. Guests can enjoy the facilities of the Estate from the privacy of their own rental property.

Palheiro Village – Freehold property sales

Palheiro Village is an award-winning development of luxury freehold apartments and detached villas in a private condominium, with a central Forum building which includes a heated 18 m swimming pool, pool bar, and viewing deck, and reception room for residents and guests. A full range of property management services are available on site from Palheiro Property Management. Palheiro Village offers property purchasers a superb location; the properties are beautifully integrated into a south-facing hillside with spectacular views over Funchal Bay. Residents enjoy privileged access to the facilities of the Estate, including Palheiro Golf, the Casa Velha hotel and the Palheiro Spa.

Palheiro Golf course

Set within the magnificent Palheiro Estate the 18-hole, par 72 Championship golf course, designed by renowned golf architect Cabell B. Robinson, meanders through a pristine environment of maritime pine and botanical woodland embroidered with lush, sub-tropical vegetation. At nearly 500 m above sea level, the location is blessed with dramatic views of Madeira’s mountainous skyline, the vast Atlantic Ocean, and the Bay of Funchal below.
This picturesque layout with year-round appeal takes full advantage of Madeira’s hilly terrain, with abrupt ridges and deep valleys providing a compelling challenge for even the most seasoned golfer. Play calls for a fair degree of accuracy – the contoured fairways and strategically placed bunkers guarding fast, undulating greens mean there’s little room for error.

Casa Velha do Palheiro hotel and restaurant

The first Count of Carvalhal created a hunting lodge in the heart of Palheiro Estate over 200 years ago. This has now been converted into a 5-star country house hotel which is a member of Relais & Châteaux. It has just 37 beautifully-decorated rooms as well as a restaurant which is a reference for Madeiran epicure. Guests can enjoy the superb facilities of the new Palheiro Spa and privileged access to Palheiro golf course and gardens.

Palheiro Golf Restaurant , Tea-house

The stylish Palheiro Golf Clubhouse, with its panoramic terrace commanding uninterrupted views of Funchal harbour and the Atlantic Ocean, features a superb restaurant managed by the Casa Velha do Palheiro hotel.
The Tea House, located in the heart of Palheiro gardens, adjoining both Palheiro Golf and the hotel gardens, offers wonderful home-made cakes, pastries and ice-creams for visitors to the gardens as well as light snacks and refreshments for the energy-burning golfers.

Palheiro Spa

The Palheiro Spa offers a range of luxurious treatments within a peaceful garden environment. In this unique oasis setting, experienced therapists can massage away the stresses of everyday life with selected aromatic essences. The Spa has a heated indoor swimming pool, sauna and steam room as well as a state-of-the-art fitness centre.

Palheiro Gardens

These gardens were started by the first Count of Carvalhal two centuries ago, and have been continually nurtured and improved by the Blandy family. The gardens are famous for Camellias and the beauty of their setting among ancient trees as well as the rich collection of plants from all over the world. Some 45,000 visitors a year enjoy the delights of Palheiro Gardens.

Balancal

The sport fishing boat M.Y. Balancal, moored in Funchal marina, is available exclusively for residents and guests of Palheiro Estate. This is an ideal way to see Madeira Island, to watch whales and dolphins or to enjoy big game fishing.
