Reviewed 4 July 2014

Palheiro Village was above the expectations. The villa in which we stayed had everything we needed, everything was modern and new, the view was awesome, to the ocean and to Funchal, the personnel was very professional.

This was our second visit to Palheiro and was every bit as good as the first. Palheiro is high in the hills above Funchal. The one bedroom large appartment was spotlessly clean and well fitted out. Super comfortable bed. It was on the first floor so had a wonderful view of the sea. The balcony was very large with sun beds, chairs and a table. Kitchen had everything you could want if you wanted to eat in. Whilst there is a bus stop just outside that will take you into Funchal, a car certainly makes life very easy, and opens the whole island to exploration. Many thanks to Vera who helped with some questions at the booking stage and was on hand to welcome us on arrival even though it was a national holiday in Madeira. The staff at Palheiro are a good team that work together to deliver a great experience. We will return for our third visit!

Room Tip: Contact Vera by phone or email and discuss your requirements. She will help you make a good choice.

We really enjoyed our stay at Palheiro. The villa was clean, very well equipped and the staff was amazing. Everyone was extremely helpful. Vera was excellent in arranging for a car rental which essentially made it effortless for us. Would definitely recommend a stay at these villas.

The apartments are very well equipped, nicely decorated and kept to a high standard. We had one with a stunning view on Funchal bay. The staff was really helpful and friendly. There is a lot to do on the premises, there is an outdoor swimming pool, beautiful gardens, tea room, restaurant, spa and golf. We can really recommend this place!

We spent 3 months here from Jan-April to escape the UK winter. We had never been to the island before so were a little apprehensive but fell in love with the island from the minute we arrived at Palheiro. What wonderful estate!! We stayed in apartment 6 which was beautifully decorated and as well equipped as any home could be. It was well appointed with lovely relaxing views of the sea and Funchal from the large balcony which had comfortable seating and sun beds. The staff, Vera, Louisa Christina could not have been more helpful throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for them!! Equally friendly were the staff at the golf club who welcomed us and included us in everything that was going on in the club. We even managed to learn a little Portuguese during our time there thanks to Patricia at the Golf Club who gave us lessons!!! Our three months passed far too quickly and the farewells were somewhat tearful affairs when the time to leave approached. Will we be back??? Most definitely!!! Would we stay at Palheiro?? Without a doubt!!!! It is not the cheapest place to stay but it is definitely the best and will be our choice for all our future trips to the island, which we hope will be many!!!!!

Room Tip: Apartment 6 and the others in that block are quitter than those on the front nearest the road. The E...

Greetings to you both from all of us at the Village!

The tears have dried but our memories of you have not.
Yes, you are a part of the family.

We look forward to having you back ( even if January was a very dry month- you know what I mean)!
The summer is proving to be great: sunshine, sunshine and more sunshine.

Best regards from the Palheiro Golf staff and of course, all of us at the Palheiro Village, particularly from myself. ( I am working on my putting- stiff wrists).

Obrigada e um abraço,

Vera

Great location
Incredible view
Warm welcome
very available service
ask for a calm and not too noisy room that is to say not to close from the road.
you need a car to live here
have a great beer at the top on the golf club
visit the garden that are magnificent and recommended by all travel guides
avoid room with water damage

We stayed in ground floor apartment with a balcony and a fantastic view. The apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped. We had a car available and there was a parking space just outside our door. A bus-stop was no more than a 100 m away with frequent service.
