Casa Velha do Palherio

http://www.casa-velha.com/

This luxury Madeira island hotel lies next to the famous Palheiro Gardens, originally created over 200 years ago by the 1st Count of Carvalhal. There is also direct access to the stunning Palheiro Golf Course, with privileged tee offs from the halfway house, a short stroll from the gate.

Within the grounds there is a heated swimming pool with sauna, steam bath and a full Spa: Tennis or croquet, billiards or walking: the choice is yours. Our private motor yacht ‘Balancal’ awaits your pleasure at Funchal marina. It is available for coastal cruises, swimming, dolphin and whale watching, as well as deep sea big game fishing and special charters. For gentler relaxation we offer a morning room with library, and a smart, comfortable lounge bar.
