This was my first trip to Madeira recommended by golf mates from my Club in Austria (GC Murau-Kreischberg). What to say? From the very warm welcome from Vera (at the reception) to the very warm welcome from Mike (Palheiro Golf Club Manager) everything was perfect from very first moment! Any special (female!) wishes? No problem - flowers, champagne whatever will be sorted out without any question. Thanks to all from Palheiro Village Team to make our stay as pleasant as possible! Wheater conditions in November on average of around 20c. Fine - even during evenings - we could have had dinner outside! But please note: A car for (average) rental is essential! Taxi to city centre of Funchal fixed price with EUR 15,-- (Don`t drink and drive - police is very much present during eventing times!) Golf Course is in pretty good condition but Golf-car recommended! And: Take your camera with you - really, really nice spots which easily help to forget bad shots....

Room Tip: Take Sea-side and Funchal view rooms - a few more money but great value!

Greetings to Austria! Servuz!

Thank you for taking the time to review us.

Happy New Year!

Flowers, champagne , you name it! Yes we are able to organize most requests. It is great to see that there are men that still send their wives, girlfriends flowers!

Your golf was great. There were no bad shots to mention! The views though from the Palheiro Golf Course are fantastic though.

We look forward to welcoming you back.
For now, best wishes from all of us in the reception, Mike at Palheiro Golf and myself, Vera.

We stayed for 4 nights in a 3-bedroom villa half way up the Palheiro Village. overlooking the communal pool. Villa was excellent - very clean and spacious. Great showers! Good location for fabulous views over Funchal harbour and near the golf club for easy meals. Also v near good supermarkets. We tried the pool, which looked great, but was too cold to enjoy - what a shame! A few extra degrees C (from 22 to 28)and we'd have used it every day. We look forward to returning and hope the pool will be warmer.

Room Tip: Get a villa half way up the resort - less road noise and better views.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to review us!

I hope you celbrated your birthday well?!

Yes, the outdoor pool was cooler than normal. One had to swim very quickly to keep warm.
We are back to our normal º24-25ºc. Our apologies for the inconvenience. Technical issue.

Looking forward to having you back as guests in the future!

Wishing you and your family all the best over the festive season and a very healthy and happy New Year!

Kind regards from the girls in the reception: Louisa, Cristina and myself, Vera.

This was our fourth year at Palhiero Village and we now feel part of the family. Of course, everyone has different tastes and requirements but for us Palhiero Village is perfect.
We live in Finland and November is the time of Kaamos or twilight. The Sun barely peeps over the horizon for more than a few hours in the south and not at all above the Arctic Circle. So Madeira is wonderful. Even when it rains it's warm rain!

This vacational rental home was everything we wished for. All the amenities needed, an astonishing view of Funchal and the Atlantic Ocean, very secure and close to everything.
It could not be better.
Mrs Vera Prömer was absolutely competent and attentive. She provided every little thing we requested. Absolutely flawless. I definitely recomend this place!

Olá e Viva Sandra!

What a great family! Always smiling. Fantastico!
I hope that during your next visit, you and I will have time to go for a run ( jog) around the Palheiro Estate.
One week is too short, especially coming from Brazil.

Thank you for taking the time to review us.
I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay.

From all of us at the Village ( Louisa, Cristina and myself), we look forward to having you back.

If there is a paradise on earth, it's here. We lived in apartments # 24 in October. Scenic views of Funchal and the ocean. The design and equipment of the apartments at the highest level. The kitchen has all the details thought out from a corkscrew to a large saucepan. Supermarket next door, but you need a car. All very much. This is the place where you want to go back. Special thanks to Vera for the warm welcome and is always ready to help.

Returned to Palheiro for the 2nd time and it is just like home from home. Appts are very well equipped, We stayed in a 2 bed appt & it was as good as our 1bed appt last year. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Vera took time to show us a 3 bedroom appt for next year (extra bodies!)
We have been to Madeira several times and now prefer to self cater. The fruit & veg available on the island is fresh & tasty (nearly took the spare potatoes home with us!) The butcher in the local pingo dulce supermarket was very helpful for cuts of meat
Had a good meal at the clubhouse & a birthday celebration at Reid's (afternoon tea) otherwise we cooked all our other meals at the appt.
One suggestion, get to know the location of the mains trip switch (in case of those rare electrical storms) & make sure you have a torch!! (maybe one in each appt Vera?)
It was fun torch signaling to the appt oposite during the power cuts! Also free or cheap wifi in the appt would be good
Once again many thanks Vera & team, see you next year

Good morning and thank you for taking the time to review us!

I am very pleased that you have come back to the Village and are looking to come back again in the near future.
Your party and size of accommodation keeps increasing. Great!
Thank you for your tip ( the flashlight).
Regarding the WIFI: as you booked directly, you were not charged for WIFI. It is included for guests that book directly.
Regards to your family ( especially to your mother in-law).
We at the Palheiro Village look forward to welcoming you back ( go for the hat trick)!

Best regards,

Our second stay at the Palhiero Village and again nothing but praise for the standard of the properties and the professionalism of the staff.
The golf club not only offers good golf but also excellent clubhouse facilities with the very good food, service and views second to none.
A car is a must because of the location but there is a local bus service that meets needs if required.
Keep up the standards, a very good choice for a stay in Madeira

Good afternoon and regards to Wales!

Thank you very much for visiting the Palheiro Village again and taking the time to write a review.

It is always a pleasure having you back. Returning guests are very important as are new. Existing guests remind us of how the property was ( if standards drop) and how it is ( when we improve). This information is vital for all. Thank you.

We all look forward to welcoming you back. Apartment #24 is waiting!

Kind regards from the reception team ( Louisa, Cristina and Vera).
