Just heaven on earth. The adjoining gardens are so beautiful, lovely to be able to stroll around after breakfast. The staff were really professional, helpful and really nice. So peaceful too, even if you have no interest in golf! This is an amazing place to stay. Driving around takes a bit of nerve, but you soon get used to the... More

This was our second stay at Casa Velha (our first was in November 2014) and we were afraid that second time won't be as good as first impression, but we were wrong! it's paradise indeed - the wonderful Paheiro gardens, the rooms, the restaurant, the spa and the professional and friendly staff. There are also golf courses, but we don't... More

This is a place where you'll be delighted. The rooms are charming. The restaurant is of high-quality and all services have best meet our expectations. Everything at Casa Velha do Palheiro is foremost top notch. The internet connectivity might however benefit from some improvements.

The staff are courteous efficient and friendly especially Luis always a greeting with a smile. The food is excellent and one can spend all day by the lovely pool or... More

This hotel is located on a hill overlooking the beautiful Funchal city and harbour. If you are a golf player, this a very nice place to stay, once Madeira Island only has two golf courses and this property owns one of them. Nice spa, beautiful and relaxing pool (heated water), stunning views and generally a very good servisse. The restaurant... More

I am recently back from my fifth visit to Casa Velha having become an instant convert last February when I first visited. I cannot begin to tell you how glad I am that I plucked this little gem from the many hotels on offer around the island. I wasn't looking for a crazy nightlife, an array of restaurants and shops...

This has to be one of the loveliest hotels we've ever stayed at. We had a suite in the main house which was fabulous, the wonderful Palheiro gardens can be accessed via a private gate and we would go every day after a lovely breakfast in the garden. There is a lovely little tea house at the bottom of the... More

What an absolutely lovely hotel which is made even more exceptional by the fantastic staff who were all so helpful and wanted to make our stay as good as it could possibly be. The only downsides were the chilly outdoor pool which no one seemed to be using and the mattresses which were rather hard. The Palheiro gardens are just... More

My husband and I have just returned from our holiday on the beautiful island of Madeira. We stayed at the Quinta Casa Velha do Palheiro, literally the "Old House" on the Palheiro Estate. Located 1,500 feet (approx. 600 metres) above sea level it is a magical place, occasionally hidden in the clouds. The Casa Velha is a traditional manor house... More
