                                          PALHEIRO GOLF

                                          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 27 hole 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.

                                          About: Hi, my name is Nuno and I am renting out an apartment with stunning ocean views in the Portuguese Madeira island. I'm interested in architecture and design but I also love to travel, tending to prefer beach or city destinations. If you have any questions about my flat, please feel free to get in touch with me.

                                          Why Funchal:
                                          I knew this apartment was 'THE ONE', since the moment I got inside and watched its' magical view. The quiet surrounded area and easy access were also a plus. After visiting this apartment, I've lost any interest I had in any other I had visited before. It was love at first sight.

                                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                                          The best view in Madeira!
