The history of Palheiro Estate - Madeira Island

Palheiro Estate enjoys an outstanding hillside location 500 meters above sea level overlooking Funchal, the capital city of Madeira.

Blessed with a rare and serene beauty, this verdant landscape of fertile woodland and glorious sub-tropical flora is a picture of bucolic charm. The sense of place is further accentuated by a panorama of stunning mountain scenery and the deep blue Atlantic Ocean.

The history behind the country estate is rich in detail and since being purchased by the Blandy family in 1885, successive generations have managed the transition from traditional farming to upscale leisure-based activities.

This strong accent on hospitality and quality continues today throughout all aspects of the business, from golf and the hotel operation to real estate sales management, the production and sale of fresh-cut flowers and even sport fishing excursions.

Indeed, the names of Blandy and Palheiro are synonymous with excellence and bespoke service on Madeira Island and beyond.
