About ImoPalheiro Lda, Palheiro Estate, Madeira

The Palheiro Estate

Located on a prime hilltop site overlooking the sophisticated capital of Funchal, the 130 hectare Palheiro Estate, has grown from an early 19th century hunting lodge and summer retreat for nobility into a sophisticated, low density resort destination.

Palheiro benefits from an unrivalled location, on the one hand its elevated position gives stunning views over the city and harbour, yet it is only ten minutes by car to the city centre, with its elegant mix of historic buildings and modern shopping. On the other hand, it is only fifteen minutes to the international airport, with direct flights to over 40 European destinations.


Madeira is a small island (50 km long) located 900 km. south-west of Portugal and 600 km. off the North African coast.

For over 200 years, Europe's elite have been drawn to the archipelago of Madeira, enjoying the reliable, year-round fine weather and dramatically beautiful landscapes. The waters surrounding the island are warm and the winding coastline provides many opportunities to enjoy them. Savvy second home purchasers are aware that Madeira, which can be easily reached in around three hours via direct flights from the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe, is an ideal alternative to long haul destinations for sun seekers, offering year round rental opportunity as well as a superb second home location.
