Stay With Us


The three Junior Suites located in the Old House offer a rare combination of generous floorspace and ambient light.

Beautifully appointed and exuding a graceful, 19th-century aura, the interior of each suite conveys a unique personality and is named after a distinguished individual inexorably linked with Madeira Island and the Palheiro Estate.

On the upper level, The Conde de Carvalhal Suite honours the 1st Count of Carvalhal who created the estate in 1801 and built Casa Velha.

The Rei Dom Carlos Suite, also upstairs, remembers Carlos de Bragança, King of Portugal, who stayed here in 1901.

Named after the man who subsequently purchased the land and buildings of Palheiro in 1885, The John Burden Blandy Suite is situated on the ground floor of the Casa Velha
