- Very Good
We had a lovely holiday and enjoyable stay at Palheiro Cottage. We were welcomed on arrival by the very friendly and helpful hosts. The cottage has wonderful views, is very comfortable and well equipped. It is an ideal base for exploring the beautiful island of Madeira. We will definitely come back.
Owner's reply: Thank you, it gives us so much pleasure to know that our guests have enjoyed their holiday at our cottage especially when it is their fist visit to Madeira. So for a relaxing holiday in peace and tranquillity, with beautiful views yet only a short drive to the Levada walks, beach and Marina book your holiday at Palheiro cottage.
“The best way to experience the real Madeira”
The British owners of the property live next door and were very welcoming, friendly and helpful throughout our visit, letting us know about the locality and making us feel at home, without imposing on us. They offer transport to and from the airport, which we took up and would thoroughly recommend. The property is in a beautiful location, with wonderful views of the ocean, valley and mountains with wonderful sunsets. Lots of lovely walks in the area. The facilities in the cottage were faultless, even down to an electric blanket which was really appreciated as it can be quite chilly even in Madeira at night in January. The cottage was clean and fresh. The balcony and sunroof came into their own during the day when it was sunny and warm. It takes about 3/4 hour to walk down the steep hill to the marina/beach, and about 1 hour to walk back, not for the faint hearted, but so worth it for the scenery. Or you can take a taxi, which are very available. Local shops, bank and cafes are all within walking distance of the property. If you can take a jeep off-road tour, it's well worth the experience. We did hire a car for a couple of days but found it quite stressful with the narrow roads and being unfamiliar with driving on the right, but this is only a personal preference and would recommend hiring a car if you want to get about more as this property is off the tourist track.
Owner's reply: Thank you, we are always so happy to hear that our guests have had a good holiday with us at Palheiro Cottage. So for a taste of the warmth and hospitality of the real Madeira in the most beautiful countryside book to stay at Palheiro Cottage. We do recommend to hire a car to enable you to see the beauty of the whole of the island at your leisure but we have also had many guests that choose not to have one and enjoy the local area by foot or bus/taxi.
“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.
Owner's reply: 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.
Owner's reply: 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.
“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).
Owner's reply: 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.
