Ideally located in a Funchal city quiet alley, opposite from the touristic area which facilitates immediate contact with genuine local life.

Licensed property by Funchal Municipality, as "Alojamento Local" (local housing) according Portuguese legal requirements.
Here in the Atlantic Ocean, not too far from the centre of Europe, we find Madeira Island.
Madeira has long been a favourite holiday destination for Northern Europeans seeking an alternative to bleak winters and frenzied lifestyles.
Recent increase in low-cost direct flights has further contributed to making Madeira the ideal location for a perfect holiday.
It is close enough for weekend breaks but a far cry from Northern temperatures, with great views.
The Island is famous for its friendly people, exceptional natural beauty and mild climate (22ºC in the summer and 16ºC in the winter).
Is just a short trip from Europe, to a destination where you can combine holidays on the beach, in the mountains or in the city. Madeira is the ideal place to relax and restore the balance of mind and body that you need to face the stress of daily life.
This 18 hole, 6000 metre plus course was designed in 1993 by Cabel Robinson, and is skillfully set within the gracious parkland of the Quinta de Palheiro Ferreiro. Remarkable for tight fairways, fast greens, and judicious use of the beautiful trees that once covered the hillside, the course is a worthy challenge for all handicap levels.
Palheiro Golf is situated some 10 km east of Funchal with magnificent views overlooking the town and bay.
SANTO DA SERRA GOLF
Its original course, built in 1937, was redesigned in 1991 by the famous golf architect Robert Trent Jones who created a completely new and spectacular 27hole golf course in one of the most beautiful landscapes that nature may offer.
Santo da Serra Golf is 20 minutes away from Funchal centre and 5 minutes away from the airport.
