EN: Madeira Flower Festival

Floral species originating in many parts of the world bloom in Madeira, as the island meets specific climatic conditions that allow species from both tropical and cold regions to flourish.

The Flower Festival is also a cultural event. Tradition is particularly associated with the event, whether through the performances of folk groups, or through the construction of the beautiful floral carpets. At the same time, homage is paid to flowers at the magnificent Flower Exhibition and the city is animated with music concerts and variety shows.

Now is the time to visit the Palheiro gardens and see the Camellias in full bloom.
The early Camellia Sasanqua start in October together with the famous Granthamiana from Hong Kong and finishes about now.
The Camellia Japonica, white, pink, red and striped flower from December through to end of April.  Single and double, a mass of beauty!  Also the huge pink and red blooms of the Camellia reticulata are showing.
From the gate house entrance along the drive, at the bottom of the main garden and in the Ribeira do Inferno you will see masses of plants; the walk continues to the Chapel, surrounded by more Camellias and then towards the huge Araucarias by Casa Velha hotel. Yes, they are everywhere.
You may notice there has been much pruning work going on in the Camellia Avenue, also along the west side of the main garden and along the drive (remnants of the fire in July 2012).
You will also see to the south of the entrance gate an extensive replanting program underway, using mainly Madeira indigenous and endemic species.
The Gardens are open every day between 09.00 – 17.30
Bus from Funchal that stops by the entrance gate, number 36A and 37.

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!).”
