Madeira Island Hotel – Quinta Casa Velha do Palheiro
We would like to congratulate David and Christina Whippen on their recent marriage at Casa Velha do Palheiro. The happy couple and their guests who travelled from as far away as San Francisco for the special occasion, had the following to say:
‘We were so very fortunate to have our wedding this summer at Casa Velha, and we could not imagine a more unique venue. Madeira is such an incredible backdrop, that all our guests fell in love with it immediately. Casa Velha, with its unbelievably beautiful setting and gardens left everyone speechless, and the chapel would be any bride’s dream. Our reception in amongst the gardens and tea house was idyllic to say the least. The staff, food, and attention to detail made our wedding all that we had hoped and dreamed it would be. Thank you so much to everyone at Casa Velha for a day we will never forget.’
David and Christina Whippen

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.
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.

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.
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.
