Sercial is the name given to several varieties of white grapes grown in Portugal, especially on the Madeira Island.

    Its characterized by its resistance. It is cultivated mainly in the north of the island and in Câmara de Lobos at altitudes that can reach 600 metres in the south coast and 200 metres in the north coast. It produces varieties of dry wine.



    The type of caste malvasia is used to produce traditionally sweet wood wine.

    It was the first to be grown on the island. Generally it is between 150 and 200 meters of altitude. This grape variety produces highly prized and coveted wines.



    It is probable that the Verdelho variety existing in Madeira comes from the Portuguese mainland, the Azores or Italy.

    It is cultivated at about 400 meters of altitude and produces dry type wines.




Located at the foot of a slope of Estreito da Calheta, Palheiros do Serrado were designed to take advantage of a natural landscape, where the green predominates and allows a calm and comforting view of the Atlantic Ocean.

    We can recomment this lovely place! The communication with the Tiagos was nice and easy, they gave us lot of tips and even a farwell present at the end :) we stayed in the smallest of the 3 houses. From the garden you have a good view on the ocean and its quiete there. If you are lucky and the fruits are ripe, you can eat bananas and passion fruit from the garden, it was beautiful!

    We were for a few days holiday in Palheiros do Serrado. The stay was very pleasant. This circumstance was based on the one hand from the very well-equipped and clean house, as well as the very good care by Tiago Teixeira. Requests were settled promptly and the agreed dates were met on time. We always had a competent and dedicated contact person. The days started with a rich and very good breakfast. The stay made our vacation a great experience. We will recommend this accommodation.

    The ambiance of the property is really good! In the morning we always received a breakfast basket with fresh juice, bread, fruits and so forth. The host was very welcoming and provided us with everything we needed snd asked for!

    We enjoyed the experience of staying in this recently built stone cottage and appreciated the thoughtfulness that went into the design and layout of the space. The breakfasts were a treat and very generous, and the staff who manage the property are very attentive. We thought the location was good for exploring the west. There are a few considerations when renting this cottage...the stairs to the loft bedroom are quite steep and there aren’t any windows that can be left open at night, but there is a very nice fireplace and a well equipped kitchen. The view of the water is best appreciated from outside the building.

    Palheiros do Serrado is an incredible place to stay. We had such an amazing 3 day visit staying in Sercial - we knew it was going to be special when we first saw the listing on Airbnb, but it exceeded our expectations. The location is beautiful and you are able to enjoy both the sunrise and sunset from the garden. The bed is really comfortable, and it seems that everything has been thought of in terms of the amenities in the accommodation (washing machine, parking, Turkish bath, wine store, logs for the indoor and outdoor fires). The attention to detail is impressive, not only in the building but also in the service provided. The breakfasts are plentiful and incredible, including fresh, organic fruit, gorgeous yoghurts and cheeses and fresh bread - as well as being able to make specific requests. We were welcomed to the building with a lovely bottle of chilled white wine and there were fresh flowers, we were given a brief but very informative tour of the facilities before being left alone to enjoy them. As if all this didn't already represent an amazing stay and good value, our host provided lots of information ahead of our trip (on request) regarding things to see and do, and eat and drink, and he was always willing to provide further recommendations throughout our trip. Palheiros do Serrado is in a quiet and secluded area but yet convenient for exploring the island, particularly the west. We definitely hope to return and highly recommend it for an extra special stay in amazing Madeira!

    Die Aussicht auf den Atlantik ist ja wunderbar. Das Frühstück war ganz okay. Die integrierte Sauna ist auch ein nettes Plus. Es waren insgesamt ein paar schöne erholsame Tage im Haus Verdehlo. Danke
