Palheiro Golf Club www.palheiroestate.com
We have made special arrangements for our clients to play on this magnificent course at a 20% reduced Green Fee of only 73:50 Euros per day. Any client interested should make contact with us to put the arrangement in hand.
There are many attractive walks throughout the Island both up and down mountain sides as well as along the rather fascinating ´levadas´.
The web addresses below will take you to any of these delightful walks and the main booking kiosk is very close to our house. Walk down Rua Do Jasmineiro, turn right at the bottom opposite the casino. Then when it is safe to cross the road (about 40 yards along in a Westerly direction) you will find yourself very close to the kiosk. Ask for Mr Nelio Gomes or one of his colleagues and they will be delighted to help.
