2nd time at Palheiro Village. This time with 4 children aged 13 down to 10! Exceeded our expectations staying in Villa 73 at the top of the hill, or more like mansion. Lift connecting the floors, fabulous pool and views. So clean and homely. Staff are as always helpful, thank you Vera. Very quiet at the top. We walked down the hill to use no 38 bus into town which the children enjoyed but we did use a taxi back stopping outside the villa! We love Madeira. The only down side with staying in these villas, if you are with children is that it is very quiet, not really many children around. Maybe a hotel would have more action in the evening. However, we are out most nights and enjoyed the luxury and comfort of returning in the evening to this beautiful home. We prefer self catering when with the children. Recommend this beautiful and well kept village. The golf club at the top served a very good evening meal as a treat on our last night.
