About this location

The Madeira Islands region

Madeira is a small island located in the entrance of the Mediterranean sea with a temperature average of 18º C in winter and 24º C in Summer, the sea water temperature is around 15ºC in winter and 22/23ºC in summer.

Madeira Island is a land with a privileged climate, where you can enjoy a forest called "Laurissilva", as well as tracks, footpaths and tunnels tearing away through this protected area (included in the UNESCO World Nature Heritage List in December 1999) along which all you can hear is your own footsteps and the humming of the birds or the water falling down the slopes on its way from the spring to the cultures.(Levadas)


Here is where Funchal city was born. Caminho do Palheiro is the address of Palheiro Residence and ends with the beguining of Santa Maria Street, the oldest street in Funchal. Here you will find the Fort of Santiago and the Santiago Church, all historic buildings that you should visit, as well as the old town with all the traditional restaurants and you can relax in the Almirante Reis Park, where you can take the cable car and visit Monte, the Monte Palace Tropical Garden, the botanical Garden and come to downtown in the traditional wicker trolley.

You can also visit the Quinta da Boa Vista Garden, a sanctuary of orchids.

"Quite excellant service, location on a steep hill down to the old town."

We stayed just over 3 weeks for Christmas and new year. Gerardo was an excellent host providing fresh milk and a welcome food hamper on arrival, after being picked up from the airport without an extr… More

"The perfect apartment with the perfect host"

All eleven reviews of this two bedroom apartment prior to mine rate it as EXCELLENT. I whole heartedly agree with the sentiments already expressed. It was spotlessly clean (we even had a mid week clea… More

"Great location, fantastic hospitality, wonderful host."

From the moment we arrived until the moment we departed Gerardo provided a wonderful service. We booked the two bedroom apartment as I am a very light sleeper - so I had the bedroom to the rear, overlooking the beautiful garden. The apartment was immaculate and has every appliance you could possibly need. When we arrived there was a welcome pack, which was greatly appreciated. We were given a tour of the building and provided with some local information. The apartment is located uphill from the "Old Town", with bus stops just outside. We walked almost everywhere - the more direct route is quite steep however the alternative route is more gradual. The buses are very regular and a taxi from the other end of the harbour was around 8 Euros. A laptop was provided within the apartment and proved invaluable particularly when choosing where to eat. The washing machine meant we could do our laundry which dried on the sunny balcony. We stayed for two weeks and loved the spacious feeling of the apartment.

The service provided throughout was outstanding - apartment cleaned, towels and bed linen changed regularly and recycling facilities provided within the apartment. There was a tv, music center, books, dvds and cds also available. Toilet roll, laundry tablets, washing up liquid, and kitchen linen was also provided (first time we have encountered this on self-catering). On Christmas Eve we had a traditional Maderian Christmas cake delivered by Gerardo and he surprised us again when on New Year's Eve we returned to the apartment to find a bottle of champagne chilling ready for the fireworks which we watched from the roof - they were spectacular. If you haven't been to Maderia for New Year, put it on your "Bucket List" you won't be disappointed. This apartment has the perfect viewing spot. Throughout our visit we had regular contact with Gerardo and if we needed anything, advice or help he sorted it out for us. Gerardo was there when we departed and presented us with a DVD of memories of Maderia.

We had a wonderful two week break, with wonderful weather and Gerardo is the perfect host - his attention to detail and pride in his country and his work is evident in everything he does. Transfer from and too the apartment is provided.

I would certainly recommend these apartments for anyone who prefers the freedom and independence of self-catering. NB The apartment is on a hill but has ramp access at the entrance, a lift inside and secure underground parking.

I am very happy to know that you liked to stay at Palheiro Residence. The satisfaction of our guests is our best reward. I look forward to hearing from you again.

"Excellent Apartment with First Class assistance"

From the moment we arrived to be met by our taxi and driver to the moment we left we were offered help and assistance by Geraldo. The apartment was in excellent condition and located less than a 15 minute walk to the town centre for us although we are all of pensionable age. The area the appartment is in is quiet, with bus stops close for those who do not wish to drive. When we visit Madeira again we will check this for availability before any others

I am very happy to know that you liked your stay at Palheiro Residence. The satifaction of our guests is our best reward. I look forward to hearing from you again.

"A lovely apartment close to the old town"

It was very straightforward to book this apartment, with the owner responding promptly to queries. The website described the property well. A free pick-up from the airport was an added bonus, and the owner was waiting for us when we arrived at the appartment to help us with our luggage and show us round the appartment. He had kindly left us with food for lunch and an hour or two came back to walk with us into town--a 5 or 10 minute walk down the hill to the sea front and restaurants.

The property--two bedrooms and two bathrooms--was spotless and very well equipped, with plenty of room for the four of us. There was even a computer and wifi access. There was a lovely view down over the harbour from one of the bedrooms and from the living room. There were bus stops a couple of hundred metres from the apparment, but most of the time we walked to and from the centre. It was a steep walk back up the hill, but good exercise.

The owner was very kind and helpful and offered to take shopping up to the appartment if we needed it, rather than having to carry it ourselves--little touches like that singled this out from anywhere else I have stayed. We were even presented with a gift and CD when we left. The taxi driver the owner used to take us to and from the airport was also very helpful and a very careful driver--we also used him when we went walking in the mountains for a day.

In summary, the appartment exceeded our expectations, the owner was extremely helpful and we would love to return one day.

We appreciate very much the kind words about our service and apartment. It is always our goal to provide to our guest the best stay in Madeira.
