Cottage Palha

A very special, cosy and charming place with comfortable living areas. The romantic getaway!

Up to 2 people Self-catering Equipped Kitchenette Private Garden Free WIFI

The cottage Palha has emerged as the rehabilitation and adaptation of one of our first traditional houses in Calhau Grande – the cottage Palheiro (haystack). This first house that we have restored to share our rural experience with guests, since 2004, was recently renewed as a studio with living area with bedroom, kitchenette and a bathroom with shower. The main and private entrance of the cottage is made by an ample glass sliding door, transforming it into a truly warm and welcoming space. A lovely balcony over the green garden contributes to compose this romantic cottage, which is a fantastic place to rest when the sun sets on the horizon.



This studio is an open space apartment with its own kitchenette, living area and bathroom. Even in a renovated space, you will feel completely inside a traditional house since, as it happens in the other cottages, the original stone walls were maintained, creating a unique rural setting. Outside the house, there is a balcony giving access to a private garden with barbecue and to the swimming pool level. The cottage is facing the sun and the ocean and takes profit of good views and warm temperatures all year round.

Thanks for your hospitality Dear Sofia, we enjoyed our stay in both Eira and Palha very much. It was a great idea from my wife to rent both places: one for the kids and one for us. Delicious! Madeira is very beautiful, but we won’t tell anybody else! So, it is guaranteed that this place remains its beauty and calmness… Thanks for your hospitality! Best regards. Ellen 07/2016
