Born in Norfolk UK, i met my Husband in Australia and after getting Married in 2002 we moved to Madeira where my husband is originally from. We really enjoy living on this beautiful little Island. Our passion is renovating properties, turning something old and run down into a new stylish home to rent or sell!

The Cottage is one of the reasons we bought this property which has 2 houses. We really enjoy the of the architecture of the traditional cottage with lots of character & then the main Villa which has a more modern contemporay feel, the main reason for buying this house is the incredible 360º views from the private terrace & close proximity to Funchal centre.

The cottage has been totally restored but keeping all the original features like the high pitched cealings, stones walls & wooden floors. It benifits from being at the rear of the property so it´s quiet, private & has comfy outdoor arm chairs to sit & relax by the court yard were there are lots of shrubs, plants & trees. The terrace has wonderful views!

We would just like to say thank you to Louise and Raul for a very enjoyable holiday. From start to finish we found it very easy to book,travel and explore Madeira. The cottage had everything we required and lots of information which was very helpful.
We had a lovely day trip with Manuel who told us about the Island showing us some wonderful scenery. Graham and Paula.

The perfect holiday retreat.

My partner and I were extremely lucky to spend 2 weeks at the cottage this summer. It was just perfect in every way !!!

Manuel greeted us at the airport on arrival at Funchal and transferred us to the the cottage which is only a 20 minute drive away. The location of the property suited us. Away from the hussle and bustle of popular tourist area's the cottage is perfectly situated in the hills of real Madeiran life. A leisurely 15 minute down hill walk leads you into Funchal where there are plenty of lovely resaurants, attractions and activities.

We immediately settled in to this tastefully styled, spacious property with its original features and our first impressions were that the cottage and its grounds were spotlessly clean and maintained to high standards. Lourdes- the house keeper is a friendly lady who keeps the whole propery and its grounds pristeen and always made time for a chat.

Prior to our holiday Louise kept in touch via email with very useful information such as airport transfer details which she had so kindly organised. Louise was there to offer a warm welcome and familiarise us to the cottage, offering sound advise if needed. We enjoyed the chats and laughs with both Louise and Raul.
The cottage is equiped with absolutely everything that is needed in the kitchen, it has a great selection of tasteful music and DVD's and a great bundle of information for holiday makers visiting the island. This really is an idylic setting in which to take in the breathtaking views over Funchal whilst soaking up the sun from the roof terrace (which by the way has sun from sun rise to sun set) and the beautiful pool area.

We just loved the adventure of buying groceries at the super markets, cooking meals in the beatiful cottage kitchen with a selection of fresh herbs from the court yard and eating whilst taking in the views from the terrace.

Manuel's island tours are magnificent and we highly recommend anyone who wants to see the many stunning parts of the island to spend the day with him. He also took us to the most beautiful ocean view location for lunch which was stunning, and reasonably priced.

What you see from the gallery photographs is exactly what you get, and more !!

Thank you so much Louise for the best holiday.we miss it so mch. Roll on 2014 !!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your detailed review of the Cottage, this is so helpful for people looking for accomodation in Madeira. We are very happy that you both had such a great time, it was lovely to see you using the pool everyday and relaxing in the sun! Although there is much to see on the Island i think you proved that our property is also a great spot to just stay home, chill out and enjoy the views! It was a great to meet you both and we very much look forward to seeing you again one day!

Perfect

What can I say - Perfection in every way! From the pick up at the airport with Manuel and the wonderful welcome from Louise at the cottage we had a fantastic holiday. The cottage was really comfortable and well equipped. The views from the terrace were amazing. We can recommend breakfast here but not if you're planning to go out for the day, you won't want to move. We had a good day out with Manuel. It was nice to stay at a location as long as we wished to and Manuel took us to a lovely family run restaurant for lunch.
The cottage is on a very steep hill but we knew that before we got there. My husband was struggling with his back when we were there but we just got a taxi or bus down and a taxi back up. They are inexpensive. It wasn't a problem at all so don't let this put you off. It was one of the most enjoyable and relaxing holidays we've had in a long time. A week wasn't long enough.
Thank you Louise and Raul. See you in 2014

What a wonderful holiday

We felt at home straight away in this delightful cottage after Louise's friendly welcome, having already had some very helpful email conversations. We were immediately struck by its cleanliness - thank you, Lourdes, you do a brilliant job - and the quality of the furniture, fittings, bedding, kitchen equipment, etc. (Amazing shower - great after a swim.) We experienced both unseasonal heat and unseasonal cold during our fortnight! During the former the cottage and verandah were cool and shady and during the latter we could shut ourselves in and switch on the heating.The pool and the roof terrace with their terrific views were a real boon. After a busy day or during a lazy one, it was easy to relax on the verandah or under the olive tree in the courtyard.

There was ample information to help us get around and decide what to do and Louise and Raoul were on hand to help with any arrangements and questions, also general chat (but only if that's what you like, which we did.) Any minor things that went wrong (a light bulb blowing, for example) were quickly dealt with.

Apart from the accommodation itself, the highlights of our holiday were our two taxi days out with Manuel. We only meant to have one! His English is excellent and not only do you get to cover a lot of the most spectacular parts of the island but, if you want him to, he will tell you all about the trees, flowers, crops, geography, history etc. The restaurants he took us to were inexpensive and provided delicious meals. He lets you decide how long to spend in places and appears as if by magic as soon as you are ready to leave!

We were very grateful on our last day that, as no-one was arriving to stay the following day, we were able to stay in the cottage until Manuel picked us up for the journey to the airport at 5 p.m., giving us an extra day.

This was our first visit to Madeira and, despite reading up beforehand, the island astonished us daily with its colour and landscape. There is so much to see & do in Funchal itself; be aware, though, that you will need to use buses to and from the town unless you are very fit as it's an extremely steep walk. It's nice to stay in a residential area rather than a tourist one, though.

Altogether a fabulous holiday.

All the best,

Christine
Owner's Response: Christine, Thanks so much for this wonderful review, this is so helpful and informative and i am very happy you both had such a great time, we work really hard to make sure our guests are happy and comfortable and it´s really nice to get such positive feed back. Manuel´s airport transfers & Island tours are brilliant, he is so reliable and taking 2 of his tours meant you really managed to see & do lots, as well as relaxing at the cottage too, i really enjoyed chatting with you, it was lovely to meet you both and thanks again for choosing the cottage!

clean and well equipped – perfect for two people.

My wife and I spent a very enjoyable two weeks at the cottage last March. The cottage was very comfortable, clean and well equipped – perfect for two people. There were lovely views of the harbour and surrounding hills from the terrace and the lounge area opened on to a spacious outdoor area where you could relax or eat meals. Louise and Raul were very friendly and helpful without being too intrusive. We would certainly recommend the property to our friends and relatives.
We originally intended to hire a car but found that local buses and taxis were cheap and adequate for our needs and, therefore, we didn’t bother with a car. The centre of Funchal is near (about a 15 minute walk from the cottage) but the route is very steep and we were glad to use buses and taxis.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your helpful review about the cottage, i am glad you made good use of the bus service´s which i must say are excellent and not just around Funchal but all over the Island which i think you used a few times to explore towns´s & villages further afield. It was a pleasure to meet you both and once again thank you for coming to stay.
