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.

The Blandy family, owners of the 210-year-old Palheiro Estate, have recently opened their private chapel for weddings and ceremonies in the stunning Palheiro gardens.
Family member and director ‘Jonathan Fletcher-Blandy’ explains:
‘We are delighted to open the doors of this beautiful baroque chapel for weddings and ceremonies. We are sure that this will become the setting for some fantastic weddings and we are very excited to finally be able to share this unique location.’
A word of warning though…the 2nd owner of the Estate (The Conde de Carvalhal) was a huge ‘bon viveur’ and held many lavish parties at Palheiro…some of a rather scandalous nature! On one occasion women were invited wearing as their costume, nothing but jewellery and high-heeled shoes! Jonathan is quick to reiterate that all ceremonies must now be fully clothed!!
General information about the Estate, its wedding facilities and location options.

Set in a 210 year old ‘Quinta’ in the foothills of Madeira surrounded by rolling hills and fantastic views of the Bay of Funchal, Palheiro Estate provides the perfect backdrop for your wedding day.
