“Palheiro Estate Folly Suites”

suite

Localizado no o ponto mais elevado da propriedade, a 540 metros acima do nível do mar, o conhecido folly, que data aos primórdios do século XIX e goza de vistas fabulosas sobre a baía do Funchal, está a ser transformado em suites adicionais para o hotel Casa Velha do Palheiro, com um tema específico para cada uma.

Estas novas suites são muitíssimo amplas, com 80m2 cada e têm camas de vidro com colchões de água exibindo Nishikigoi, ou carpas brocadas, que foram cuidadosamente transplantadas dos lagos nos Jardins do Palheiro, com as suas tonalidades várias a realçar os arranjos cromáticos de cada tema.

Nini Andrade Silva, a designer de renome mundial, que assinou o projecto de interiores diz: Adorei o desafio, especialmente o de recriar o ambiente das festas loucas que o 2º Conde de Carvalhal dava, no que é hoje o hotel Casa Velha do Palheiro, para as quais se encorajavam as convidadas a trajar apenas jóias e sapatos de salto alto! Como seria de imaginar, utilizei principalmente tons quentes e texturas convidativas, para recriar um ambiente sedutor naquela suite espaçosa, e só lá há carpas vermelhas e pretas.

As lareiras ecológicas usando exclusivamente “lenha do inferno” são outra novidade na Madeira, com cada toro a emanar um aroma diferente através do fumo. Os aromas ainda estão a ser finalizados e aperfeiçoados por perfumistas de Paris e Milão, mas sabemos que a lareira da “Suite-Folly do Sapato Vermelho” exudará chamas eróticas e feromonas sintéticas sensuais, numa tentativa de recriar o estilo de vida boémio do 2º Conde de Carvalhal, cujas aventuras amorosas e propensão por jogos de azar lhe custaram a fortuna que herdara.

À chegada ao Palheiro Estate, os hóspedes das suites Folly serão imediatamente transferidos para um dos cavalos pertencentes à herdade (podendo escolher entre um cavalo de tracção ou um Mustang) para usufruírem dos singelos “Nature Trails” que são parte integrante deste complexo, a caminho do seu alojamento ímpar.

Restauração: paralelamente, o Palheiro Estate usará a inauguração das suites para lançar um conceito original, uma gastronomia patenteada denominada «Palheiro Endorganic» (patente pendente) onde a herdade garante que toda a comida servida é produzida de forma biológica, num raio de 1km das suites, e fertilizada com estrume dos seus cavalos e guano dos bandos de esquivos pombos torcaz que se estabeleceram no Palheiro Estate.

Música: Através do Mini Eco, cada suite terá o seu próprio estilo musical e o seu curador de conteúdos, Paulo Lima afirma: isto tem sido uma oportunidade única de trabalhar com tão emblemática jóia madeirense, bem como para o Mini Eco implementar o seu estilo individual em cada suite. Às sextas e aos sábados cada suite terá o seu próprio DJ a passar variados estilos de electrónica, conforme as preferências dos hóspedes.

Magische Gärten

Screen Shot 2017-03-30 at 09.44.16

Der Landschaftsarchitekt Jean-Philippe Teyssier führt durch die schönsten Gärten der Welt. In dieser Folge: 1420 entdeckten portugiesische Abenteurer die Insel Madeira. Heute begeistert die “Blumeninsel” ihre Besucher mit zahlreichen Parks, Gärten und Quintas. Die Quinta do Palheiro wurde 1804 vom Graf von Carvalhal angelegt.

Mitten im Atlantik, am Kreuzweg zwischen Europa, Afrika und Amerika, wurde Madeira nach seiner Entdeckung um 1420 zu einem beliebten Zwischenstopp für Reisende und zu einem Umschlagplatz für exotische Pflanzen, die Seefahrer, Missionare und Botaniker aus fernen Gegenden mitbrachten. Den Beinamen „Blumeninsel“ erhielt Madeira später wegen seiner zahlreichen Parks, Gärten und Quintas. Quintas sind ehemalige Landgüter, die im 19. Jahrhundert entstanden und von weiten Grünanlagen umgeben sind. Die Quinta do Palheiro wurde Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderst vom Grafen Carvalhal angelegt. Davor war der Bereich des Gartens wüstenartig. Der Graf war ein Liebhaber von französischen Gärten, und dieser französische Einfluss ist erkennbar: Er legte drei große, von Bäumen, vor allem Platanen, gesäumte Achsen an. Erst ab 1885, mit der Ankunft der englischen Familie Blandy, entwickelte sich der Garten zu seiner heutigen Form. Die Blandys bauten Landwirtschaftsbetriebe auf und legten Ziergärten an. Den Garten gestalteten sie nach der Mode des späten 19. und frühen 20. Jahrhunderts um. Es entstand ein viktorianischer Garten, angepasst an das Klima und den Boden Madeiras. Die viktorianischen Elemente finden sich vor allem in den Blumenbeeten und der Einfluss Madeiras zeigt sich an den Kieselsteinwegen. Der Hauptgarten ist durch einen Fluss abgetrennt und in sechs Rechtecke aufgeteilt, die alle eine besondere Atmosphäre verbreiten. Die verschiedenen Geschmäcker der Generationen spiegeln sich in dieser Vielseitigkeit. Und dank des Klimas und des Sonnenscheins auf der „Blumeninsel“ blüht die Quinta do Palheiro das ganze Jahr über.

Palheiro Gardens in the Spring

Screen Shot 2017-03-08 at 10.00.11

After the glorious winter showers and flowerbed preparations we are ready to greet spring with the mass of colours it brings us. Wild Freesias, yellow Lupins and the Jasmin with their wonderful scent are growing everywhere. Daffodils together with Rhododendrons and the mauve Moschosma from Zimbabwe. The beautiful and tender Cantua buxifolia with its red long trumpets and so many other interesting and beautiful plants. The rare Clematis grandiflora is also in flower, together with the heavenly scented Sweet peas and some wonderful Clematis. Among the flowering trees we will see the lovely Michellia doltsopa from the Himalayas, different kinds of Mimosa, white and pink Magnolias. The Judas tree flowers a bit later together with the white and blue Wisterias. We must not forget the Camellias; they start in October and go on flowering until May, if we are lucky. The different Proteas from South Africa together with their cousin, the Waratah from Australia will be in full bloom. The box hedges will all have had their cut and the lawns are emerald green until the short deep pink Oxalis makes its amazing carpet over it all!
