“Fantastic Place - great owners”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed in the cottage for 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute. The place is great for a couple, well equipped and comfortable with plenty of options for eating/reading/relaxing.

The views from the balcony and terrace are great, the bed is comfortable and the shower is brilliant. We ate in most nights, usually cooking for ourselves, but we also ate with Graham and Jenny on 4 occasions and I thoroughly recommend doing this, they are both excellent cooks and the meals are very reasonably priced (and better than most restaurants).

They grow a lot of their own food and we enjoyed eggs from the chickens, home made jam and fish caught by Graham as well as being given fruit that neighbours had passed on.

Although the owners live next door they keep to themselves, but are available (and willing) to help if you need advice. We were happy to find a welcome pack that saw us through the first evening and breakfast.

Thank you so much, it was a pleasure to have you. We are always so pleased to hear that our guests have had a good holiday and that they enjoyed our cooking!!
The weather stays good all year round so why not get away from the cold and rain and book an Autumn/Winter break at our cottage.

Thank you, it gives us so much pleasure to know that our guests have enjoyed their holiday at our cottage especially when it is their fist visit to Madeira. So for a relaxing holiday in peace and tranquillity, with beautiful views yet only a short drive to the Levada walks, beach and Marina book your holiday at Palheiro cottage.

Thank you, we are always so happy to hear that our guests have had a good holiday with us at Palheiro Cottage. So for a taste of the warmth and hospitality of the real Madeira in the most beautiful countryside book to stay at Palheiro Cottage. We do recommend to hire a car to enable you to see the beauty of the whole of the island at your leisure but we have also had many guests that choose not to have one and enjoy the local area by foot or bus/taxi.

Thank you, we are always delighted when our guests have enjoyed their time at our cottage and especially that they have enjoyed the island of Madeira. It is not the place to be for hustle and bustle but if you like peace and tranquillity in the most beautiful countryside but with easy access to the main roads and Lavada walks with all year round sunshine then Palheiro Cottage is the perfect place to stay.

We are so pleased to have yet another happy guest. So for a good base for the Lavada walks, the beach and marina where you can go out fishing on our boat or spend a relaxing day on the roof terrace soaking in the sun, book now.

“A little Gem”

We have recently returned from a most memorable two week break in Madeira, based at Palheiro Cottage. The cottage enjoys stunning views of both sea and mountains and sunsets from both the balcony and roof terrace. Accommodation is excellent, very comfortable and has everything you could ever need. The owners, Jenny and Graham, have obviously put a lot of thought and effort into making this property so appealing.

Jenny and Graham live next door and were very helpful, friendly and hospitable. Nothing was ever too much bother, even liaising with the authorities when a local driver reversed his car into us! We had several meals with them and thoroughly enjoyed their company. If eating with them, guests must try Graham’s Espada dish.

In conclusion: a fabulous place in a beautiful setting , superb views, well located for
Levada walks, delightful owners and the opportunity to go game
fishing or just cruising along the coast in their boat.

We highly recommend this property

Thank you, it always gives us so much pleasure to know that our guests have a good holiday. As we live next door to the cottage we are on hand for advice or to help with any problems without being intrusive. So for beautiful views, a relaxing atmosphere close to the Levada walks, marina and beach book to stay at Palheiro Cottage.
