To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Relais & Chateaux, Casa Velha do Palheiro invites you to join us on a gastronomic journey. On the 24th and 25th of October Casa Velha do Palheiro will be hosting its annual Gastronomic weekend.  The guest chef this year will be Vincent Farges who is the Executive chef at Fortaleza do Guincho situated in Cascais.

After completing his education in France, Vincent worked in some of the best French restaurants to join the select team Buerehiesel with Chef Antoine Westermann, who would later inaugurate the Fortaleza do Guincho in 1998. In Morocco, where he remained for four years, he opened and was responsible for the restaurant La Bavaroise (Casablanca). In Greece, where he later settled, he inaugurated the Hotel Grande Bretagne (Athens) and was also responsible for several luxury kitchen chains. Apart from participating in various cultural events of national and international prestige, guest judging various gastronomic cuisine contests and developing initiatives with world-renowned Chefs at Fortaleza do Guincho, Chef Vincent is the creator of the highly acclaimed “Citrus Symphony”, a one season menu made ​​exclusively from dozens of different citrus fruits, from starters to dessert, which already has two highly successful editions in 2012 and 2013.

In 2010 Vincent Farges was recognized as Chef of the Year, both by the prestigious Guide Boa Cama Boa Mesa and the newspaper Expresso.

Joining him will be the head chefs at Casa Velha do Palheiro – Madeira born Chef Francisco Quintal and French Chef Eric Weidmann – who will be using their vast experience of Casa Velha haute cuisine whilst showcasing all the gastronomic delights the region has to offer. Especially chosen Portuguese and Madeira wines from the Blandy Wine vaults will complement this Autumnal menu.
Visitors to Madeira and Casa Velha do Palheiro are invited to make reservations for dinner at their earliest convenience to avoid disappointment.

Price will be €80 euros per person including all wines.

Madeira is on the Top10 of the RadioTimes list for best fishing destinations in the world. The list was suggested by the expert angler Rae Borras, the presenter of BT Sport’s new fishing show.

“8. Madeira

For many anglers the giant blue marlin, which can grow to weights in excess of 1,000lbs, is the ultimate piscine catch. The island of Madeira, sitting 360 miles off the west coast of Africa is a magnet for these giant ocean predators and a world record fish is always a possibility. Just a few hours flying from the UK, Madeira is a great tourist destination as well as an angler’s paradise. You had better make sure you are fit, as the longest recorded fight with a marlin was over 30 hours (and it got away!).”

Golf & Ride Portugal 2014

image002 2
The first 2014 fund raising initiative for EDGA started on the 8th of March 2014 in Lisbon Portugal.

The current President of EDGA Tony Bennett and his wife Sue have challenged themselves to play one hole at 72 Golf courses spread the length and breadth of the Portuguese mainland and in the islands of Madeira and the Azores.

The challenge is not so much the 72 holes but rather the distance that these ‘recreational cyclists’ will cycle between courses.

Tony and Sue expect to cycle approximately 1400 kilometres as they zig-zig across the mountain ranges, along the coast, through cities, towns and villages and experience some of the most beautiful countryside in the whole of Iberia.

The first three rounds have now been completed and were a great success. The Golf courses were very supportive and their hospitality was much appreciated.

Round 4 of Golf & Ride Portugal 2014, which is in progress at the time of writing, will take place on the islands of the Azores, Porto Santo and Madeira. It will bring down the curtain on what has been a very challenging but equally enjoyable journey. Strictly speaking they will visit the island of São Miguel in the Azores where they will start at the Furnas Golf Course before cycling to the much younger Batalha Golf Club. The island of São Miguel is often called the ‘green island’, it is the largest and most populated of the Azores and is the home of the Presidency of the region. The diverse scenery they will encounter starts with a volcanic lake, through mountains and rolling hills until they reach green plains on the outskirts of the capital, Ponta Delgada.

A complete contrast is the next island Porto Santo which has a glorious nine kilometers of white sandy beach and is perhaps one of the best places to get away from it all. The interior is somewhat rugged but with a landscape surrounded by the ocean, superb diving and fishing off the coast it is truly a remarkable retreat.

Finally they will make their way by boat to the island of Madeira. Discovered in 1415, Madeira is the largest of the islands that make up the autonomous archipelago of Madeira, Porto Santo and Desertas. Its position just off the coast of Africa makes Madeira the outermost land in the European Union. EDGA President Tony Bennett and his wife have visited Madeira many times over the last 20 years and it is fitting that Palheiro Golf will be the last official course of Golf & Ride Portugal 2014.

Top 200 EUROPE logos 2014 gold

Palheiro Golf, Ilha da Madeira – no Top 200 Campos de Golfe Europeus – Revista Golf World.
O Palheiro Golf, na Madeira, foi incluído na nova lista de TOP 200 campos europeus da Golf World.

Revista líder da modalidade, o Golf World publicou recentemente a sua lista “top 200 na Europa” e oPalheiro Golf é um dos campos portugueses em destaque .

” Esta homenagem é especialmente gratificante, pois este ano comemoramos nosso 20 º aniversário e é o culminar do enorme trabalho que tem sido feito no campo ultimamente. Temos, agora, vista para o mar em todos os buracos do campo de golfe o que, a uma altitude de 500 metros, é raríssimo. O arquitecto de golfe Cabel Robinson fez um trabalho fantástico com este local maravilhoso, fazendopleno uso da sua envolvente única, implantado dentro do Palheiro Estate, uma herdade com 210 anos de história”, disse Jonathan Fletcher presidente do Palheiro Golf.
Actualmente o campo é visualmente ainda mais deslumbrante com as novas panorâmicas do mar, a vista para a montanha e as árvores centenárias dos Jardins do Palheiro.

O “200 Top campos de golfe no continente europeu” resulta de escolhas e classificações dadas por jornalistas especializados em golfe, sendo um ranking conferido de dois em dois anos, pela revista Golf World.

Palheiro Golf, Madeira Island – in Golf World´s TOP 200 European Courses.

Palheiro Golf in Madeira has been ranked in the new Golf World´s TOP 200 European Courses list.

Leading golf magazine, Golf World, has recently published its ‘top 200 in Europe’ list – and Palheiro Golf is one of the Portuguese courses featured.
‘This honour is especially rewarding as this year we celebrate our 20th anniversary and is the culmination of much hard work on the course recently.  We now have sea views on every hole of the golf course which at an altitude of 500 meters is very unusual.   Golf architect Cabel Robinson did a fantastic job with this wonderful site and has made full use of the historic setting within the 210 year old Palheiro Estate’, said Jonathan Fletcher Chairman of Palheiro Golf.

The course is now even more visually stunning with the new sea views, the mountain views and  the centennial trees of Palheiro Gardens.

The “TOP 200 Golf Courses in Continental Europe” results of choices and ratings given by golf specialist journalists, being a rank conferred every two years by Golf World magazine.
