Ok, I admit it, I have a genetically embedded dislike of golf.
But, even though it's surrounded on all sides by golfists, their dubious fashion choices, and the scars of a recent forest fire that very nearly wiped this little retreat from the map, the Casa Velha is a beautiful location. We didn't stay there, having rented a villa in the nearby Palheiro Village, but we did make use of the spa facilities, and dined in the restaurant there.
The spa is first class. Friendly staff, lovely facilities, and the treatments are a treat in every sense of the word.
The food is fantastic too. The best we had in Madeira.
