"Beautifully kept accommodation whose owners went that extra mile"
A lovely week in compact but immaculate accommodation. The cottage is off the beaten track so not the place to go if you're looking for nightlife, but the stunning views and sunsets from the balcony and roof terrace will never be forgotten. Located on a steep hill (Madeira is full of them!), a car is handy for accessing the mountains and/or the sea, and also the supermarket.
Thank you Graham and Jenny for looking after us so well, from the homemade jam and home produced eggs waiting on our arrival to advice about where to visit and where to eat. You were both so kind and welcoming. We hope one day to return.
Thank you, we are always delighted when our guests have enjoyed their time at our cottage and especially that they have enjoyed the island of Madeira. It is not the place to be for hustle and bustle but if you like peace and tranquillity in the most beautiful countryside but with easy access to the main roads and Lavada walks with all year round sunshine then Palheiro Cottage is the perfect place to stay.

"Fantastic Views Great Location For Visiting Other Places Around The Island"
First time to Maderia we had a lovely time,the cottage was extremely clean & the views are fantastic.Good location for visiting around the island, a car is a must as there are so many lovely little places to visit & the old roads make a very interesting drive.Food & drink very good value for money especially the local wine, good & very cheap. Graham & Jenny the owners of this great property were very helpful in every way when needed. Great place & island to come for a relaxing break.
We are so pleased to have yet another happy guest. So for a good base for the Lavada walks, the beach and marina where you can go out fishing on our boat or spend a relaxing day on the roof terrace soaking in the sun, book now.

"A little Gem"
We have recently returned from a most memorable two week break in Madeira, based at Palheiro Cottage. The cottage enjoys stunning views of both sea and mountains and sunsets from both the balcony and… More
Thank you, it always gives us so much pleasure to know that our guests have a good holiday. As we live next door to the cottage we are on hand for advice or to help with any problems without being intrusive. So for beautiful views, a relaxing atmosphere close to the Levada walks, marina and beach book to stay at Palheiro Cottage.

"Well-appointed accommodation with lovely view towards the ocean."
Well maintained property with good facilities. Everything lovely and clean. Double patio doors open onto a small, private terrace which offers lovely west facing views over the valley and ocean. A large terrace above would be great for sun-bathing and dining (unfortunately bad weather stopped us from enjoying this).
The owners, Graham and Jenny, live next door and are always available if needed. Nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed a meal with them on our day of arrival.
Graham has a boat registered for sea fishing. This can be organised by prior arrangement.
Good location for lavada walks and a good base for exploring western Madeira (car recommended).
We are pleased to have yet another happy customer,it was a pleasure to have you. So for wonderful Lavada walks, relaxing on the beach, fishing with Graham or enjoying a bottle of wine watching the sunset from the balcony, book your holiday with us at Palheiro Cottage.
