Jenny and I have both been in the Licenced trade and I am a quaified Chef. We are both retired now and live next door to the cottage in the main house, so we are usually available to advise or assist whenever needed. However we will never be a nuisance to you and only seek to enhance you holiday experience.

Graham and Jenny Venters purchased this cottage in 2009

We bought the main house in 2009 and renovated the cottage 3 years later in early 2012. It was a derilict 'Cow House' and we did the reconstruction sympathetically to the original style and in a manner that we would be happy to stay in it ourselves, Hence the cottage is very well equipped to a high standard and is very comfortable. We chose to live in this area as it is very quiet and the views are out of this world. The house and cottage are a little off the beaten track and so you will experience the 'Real' Madeira as against the Tourist images usually offered. Also, being at 400 mtrs altitude it does not get too hot in Summer or too Cold in Winter.

We offer a range of additional services with the cottage ranging from an evening meal service, boat trips for big game or bottom fishing, dolphin watching or just a gentle cruise along the coastline and airport transfers.

A beautiful Island

  • Submitted: Feb 28, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
A beautiful island and amazing landscape that does not compare with anything we have seen before. But that's nothing compared with the way Graham and Jenny have made us feel special. We have appreciated your hospitality, the comfort of this superb place, your attention to every detail and all the basics we found on arriving. It's a pity we do not stay longer, a week is too short to really discover this amazing island, but we will come again that's for sure, when all the flowers are out and we can go swimming.
Thanks for all this Jenny and Graham, do not change anything, particulary not the recipe of your tasty maracuja marmalade.

Thank you Graham and Jenny for your warm welcome and hospitality. Our third time in Madeira, Palheiro Cottage is well located for walking at Rabacal and the Lavada Nova. You made sure we were comfortable when the weather was not so good. We enjoyed our visits to Jardim do Mar and Porto Moniz, eating at New Era (Calheta Marina) and Rurais in Prazers ........... a lovely holiday!

We have had the joy of staying in Palheiro Cottage

  • Submitted: Feb 17, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
Youv'e read the reviews, the accolades, the praise and we can attest - it's all true and more!! We have had the joy of staying in Palheiro Cottage for the whole month of January and can find no fault. From the first contact with Jenny and Graham through to our final goodbye, we have felt like family, well appreciated and tendered. No request was too large or too small and were all met with a smile and "our pleasure". We have travelled the world and would without hesitation recommend Palheiro Cottage. Our biggest concern is that the seceret will get out and we won't be able to rebook!! We look forward to the worldwide launch of "Jenny's Jams" and would like to pre order a case of each variety!! With the best regards and utmost esteem, The Americans!!!!

Our cottage is located on the outskirts of Estrela which is the commercial centre for the Calheta Region. We are withing easy walking distance of the village and some Lavada Walks . Also some of the most spectacular Lavada Walks (the 25 Fontes at Rabacal) are within our region and are easily accessed by car. The Marina is but a short drive from the cottage and this has a number of Restaurants and Bars. There is also a sand beach next to the Marina with a safe swimming area, although you may choose to go out to sea with Graham on his boat and swim in the Ocean or view the Whales and Dolphins or even go fishing for your supper! The boat is fully licenced and insured. 15 Kilometers away is Cabo Girao, the second highest Sea Cliff in the World with a cable car from the top to almost the bottom and a view point with glass floor.Swim in the natural pools at Porto Moniz which is just a short drive away.
