Palheiro Village

Perfect for families with spacious accommodation, car hire is recommended.


Where To Stay

Choose from a selection of spacious 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments and 3 or 4-bedroom Villas. A few of the 4-bedroom Villas even have a private pool (on request). All units are tastefully furnished in an individual style and most have views across Funchal and towards the sea. Front row 1-bedroom apartments have an uninterrupted view of Funchal and the sea, although they are located closest to the main road.

All Villas and apartments are well equipped with hairdryer, a dishwasher, washer/dryer, gas stove/electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, kettle, toaster, coffee machine, dishes and all utensils you will need. The living room offers a flat screen TV and DVD player. The 1 and 2-bedroom apartments are air-conditioned and have wood burning fireplaces. 3-bedroom apartments and Villas have central heating, but no air-conditioning. All properties are serviced twice a week and all are supplied with bed linen, towels and pool towels.


The Palheiro Estate offers two dining options should you fancy a break from self-catering, both only a short drive. The Palheiro Golf Clubhouse Restaurant, high above Funchal and with glorious views from the panoramic terrace, perfect for that pre or post dinner drink. The Mediterranean à la carte menu is available at night (smart casual dress is requested) or there is a lighter snack menu for lunch. More formal dining is offered at the 5-star Hotel Casa Velha do Palheiro, which offers an attractive à la carte menu or, for a special occasion, a 7 course Gourmet menu. Smart casual dress is requested for dinner. The Light Meal menu is offered for lunch.

Leisure Facilities & Spa

There is a heated outdoor pool with sunbeds and umbrellas centrally located within the development and adjacent to a reception area (not open 24 hours).

Use the leisure facilities at Casa Velha do Palheiro including the tennis court (charge applies) and the hotel’s luxurious Palheiro Spa, a wonderful place to relax and unwind. There is a sauna, Turkish bath, heated indoor pool, fitness room and 4 treatment rooms. The Tea House, in the beautiful Palheiro Gardens (entrance fee applies), is the perfect place to break a mid morning stroll around the gorgeous gardens or for a traditional afternoon tea.

This apartment and Villa complex is situated on a steep slope and may be challenging for anyone with mobility issues.

We recommend Palheiro Village for its lovely setting and excellent facilities as well as its proximity to the golf course and the Palheiro Gardens. For your convenience we include an economy hire car with this holiday, we provide directions.

Driving time from Funchal Airport – approx. 20 minutes.
