If you want to spend a pleasant morning walking for 30 min along a Levada (water channel) and strolling in a stunning “English Country Garden”, please join us. The Count of Carvalhal built this private estate in the 19th century, and the Blandy family, known for producing Madeira wine, owns it and still lives here. Plants from all over the world surround the Quinta (manor house or chateau) and private chapel. You will enjoy the display of well-known plant species, such as camellia, magnolia, proteas, succulents, and unusual ones such as Banksia coccinea. It is worth visiting Palheiro Gardens in different seasons. Bulbs, shrubs and herbs all glow in the sun, but the garden is at its best when it blooms with blue flowers. The topiary garden is fascinating, especially the group of peacocks. You may see some Madeira birds like the unique Trocaz pigeon, firecrests, and butterflies. The visit includes tea or coffee and homemade cake in the lovely tea house. You can watch the frogs hopping on and off the Lilly pads, admire the adjacent Palheiro Golf Course and Casa Velha do Palheiro, a Relais & Châteaux Hotel, one of the best golf resorts in Europe and Madeira Garden hotel. If you love magnificent old trees and exotic plants from around the world, this is for you. A gem not to be missed!
