Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful two weeks in The Cottage - quiet and peaceful, just a short bus ride from the busy centre of Funchal. We walked down to the city every day but only managed the walk back up twice! Several local buses stop very close to the property and taxis are very reasonably priced too. We enjoyed levada walking, visiting other parts of the island, the festival at the Monte, buying local produce in the markets, eating at some of the numerous restaurants (Armazem do Sal is our favourite) .... and sampling the caipirinhas and poncha!! Back at The Cottage Louise and Raul have thought of everything we needed from a shady courtyard, a sun filled terrace, a beautiful pool, an extremely comfy bed, lovely accommodation and even a herb garden for when we cooked. Louise and Raul are so relaxed and friendly and made us feel very welcome. We also enjoyed chatting to Lourdes and Manuel was a wonderful tour guide.
We both agree that this is the best holiday rental we have had - and we will definitely contact Louise again when we return to Madeira. Thanks again Louise and Raul for helping to make our holiday so relaxing and enjoyable in such beautiful surroundings.

Special Anniversary Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for somewhere special to spend our Golden Wedding Anniversary and we definitely found it. First time in Madeira which we enjoyed immensely - we did a lot of walking on the Levadas some of which were a bit scary! The weather was wonderful - two weeks very hot and sunny only rained on our last day. Would recommend the Lido if you want to swim in the sea. The cottage was lovely very quiet and peaceful - we enjoyed sitting on the terrace with nice views of the marina and the cruise ships coming and going. Louse and Raul were very friendly and welcoming - as was the lovely Lourdes who we had quite a few chats with and is very helpful with information. They all helped to make our anniversary memorable and Louise recommended the restaurant Armazem do Sal for our a special meal. The food, wine and service was excellent and they made a special sweet for our Anniversary. The whole holiday was very enjoyable and we shall remember our Golden Wedding Anniversary with very fond memories. We hope to return one day and would definitely stay in the Cottage.

The Ideal Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Hi Louise & Raul
We would like to thank you both for your kind reception on our arrival, and the hospitality throughout our stay at your cottage.
The cottage was ideal, with all modern amenity's, quiet, lovely scenery form the veranda, nice pool, just what we needed, a brake and to do our own thing, go out and eat the lovely local food, witch was all very good, and with good service.
The tour that you kindly recommended with Manuel was absolutely fantastic, he showed us all the places to visit in the south of the island, and told us the history as we went from place to place, well worth it.
He also showed us the north of the island. stopping at a restaurant, and advising us on a local dish to try before dropping us at the airport on the way back.
( very nice man )

Thanks again
Colin & Sue
PS
Looking forward to returning

Tranquil Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the cottage which is finished to a high standard and is a home from home experience with all your home comforts.

Louise and Raul were very welcoming and friendly, great hosts the place has a relaxed atmosphere.

If you intend to walk take good footwear as the town is a 15 minute down hill walk but the reverse walk is challenging on your carves which we did every night but you can jump in a cab as there are plenty on hand. You can drive but the roads remind me of our visit to Sanfransisco so not for the faint hearted but motorways fine.

We will definitely stay here again when we visit Maderia again.

Tranquil retreat

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the cottage which has every thing that you need and is finished to a very high standard. We will definitely stay there again when we visit Maderia.

Louise and Raul are both lovely and you feel like you are at home and have known them for ages such a warm friendly welcome.

Definitely take good footwear if you intend to walk as the accommodation is at the top of a steep hill. An easy 15 minute walk down town but challenging on your carves as we walked it every evening as easier than driving as Sanfransisco comes to mind not for the faint hearted driving down town but motorways are fine.

This was our first visit it Maderia and we had a great holiday as all the people in bars and restaurants friendly and helpful speaking very good English.

A Wonderful Week in Madeira

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I were lucky to spend a week in this lovely cottage for Christmas, and we had a fabulous time! Louise & Raul are simply wonderful. From the very first email, Louise was very professional, prompt and helpful. She was always available if we had questions or needed anything. They both did a marvelous job restoring the cottage.

The cottage was just as it's described. It is in great condition, very clean, and perfectly sized for 2 people. The layout was great, the shower wonderful, and the bed very comfortable. We used the kitchen (and outdoor bbq) a good bit and it was equipped with everything we needed. The TV/DVD worked great, as did the stereo. The WIFI was a bit moody, but we were still able make phone calls and check email when needed. The washer was really nice to have, as it enabled us to travel light and not have to check luggage. There are some books and maps about the area in the cottage as well. An iPod docking station and more DVDs would be a nice addition someday. We really enjoyed the courtyard area, but we didn't utilize the terrace with the view much. We didn't get to use the pool either (too busy exploring!)

As mentioned by others, it is a 15 minute very steep walk to the city center (restaurants, grocery store, etc). We usually walked down, but took a taxi back up. We almost rented a car, but so glad we didn't - as we didn't need to. For the same price, we had Manuel pick us up and take us to the airport, as well as take us on two full day trips to see different parts of the island (the West side and the East side). Manuel is really nice, speaks English, is professional, punctual, and a wealth of information! He knows all the roads, the short cuts, the best views, the good restaurants, the best things to see and even where to park. We never felt rushed and we saw (and learned) so much more than we would have had we tried to do those trips ourselves.

We both would have liked to stay another week - to do more walks and explore more areas, but the cottage was already booked for New Years. The island is beautiful and there is so much to see and do. Great weather, good restaurants, lovely city, and fantastic people. I could easily see returning here and staying in the cottage again or trying one of Louise's other properties.

Owner's Response: Hello & thank you for taking the time to make a review of The Cottage. I am so pleased that you enjoyed the accommodation and thought that everything was finished to a high standard. We have just installed a new Wi-fi modem just for the cottage so the internet is now 100% in & outside the property. We have ipod speakers in our other rentals so i think your right, it is about time we upgrade the cottage from the stereo & cd´s to an ipod doc! It´s great you made use of the public transport, taxi´s and went on one of Manuel´s Island tours, he looks after you very well, there is still so much to see & do without a car and this way you got to relax too! Once again thank you, best Regards Louise.

The cottage is a perfect base to explore Funchal and the surrounding areas. It takes about 10 to15 minutes to walk down to the centre of Funchal where you will find the cable car to Monte, 'zona Velha' the old town, museums, quaint streets filled with cafe´s & boutiques and the Old Blandy Wine lodge. There is a small supermarket, cafe & cash machine near by and in Funchal there´s a wide choice of places to eat & shop. If you are not driving there are regular bus service´s & taxis available. Down at the harbour there are daily trips for whale & dolphin watching, Marlin fishing and in the 'Old town' there´s the swimming complex 'Barreirinha' where you can access the sea to swim.
