Our apartment was pretty spacious and came with a cat eager (but discouraged) to partake of dinner. Although the view wasn't exactly as billed due to a building and hedge that slightly obscured the view (apartment 9) you still had a good overview of Funchal down below. The staff were very helpful especially when we needed an emergency dentist. The... More

Good afternoon and greetings from Madeira and the Palheiro Village. Yes, all of the apartments are in the lower half of the Village and the three bedroom apartments and villas are higher up. The apartment you stayed in is quiet; I believe you requested a quiet apartment. Thank goodness you didn´t feed the cat/s. They are not ours and we... More

The noise coming from the heavy traffic just in front of the balcony of our apartment (#16) was far from relaxing. Could not believe we had two double lanes highway and a second main road just in front of our apartment. We counted 50 to 60 cars, trucks and motorcycles a minute on these 6 lanes of traffic.

These apartments are fantastic like home from home, nicely furnished with all the facilities you could need. The views of Funchal from the balconies are amazing, we spent most evenings eating a home cooked meal with a glass of wine on the balcony admiring the views. The hotel complex was very smart, a nice pool area with pool bar, table... More

This was our first visit to Madeira and we couldn't have chosen a more fabulous apartment.

Palheiro Village is lovely. It's on a really steep hill (as is everything in Madeira!) and the views are incredible. The pool is a good size, not toooooo busy even in peak season—could do with a few more cushions for the sun loungers though. Staff in the village are fabulous—super helpful.
