It is the perfect holiday home in which to experience the local culture, enjoy the countryside and walks, and explore the island.

The garden is to the side and has a covered sitting area and lawn where you can while away the hours or eat alfresco.

NOTES ON ACCOMMODATION

There is free wi-fi connection on the ground floor.

Although not essential as the cottage is in the centre of the village, as in most holiday houses, a hire car is recommended.

The advertised prices are based on a 2-person occupancy and supplements apply should additional people join you for any length of time.

The villa is prepared for your arrival and the final clean is included. A midstay clean is included for stays of 9 nights or more.

Above Lameiros is the old lime furnaces that in olden times produced this material for construction and whitewashing Madeiran houses. It is now part of the newly created Lime Route that allows visitors to see how the limestone was extracted and turned into lime.

The renowned São Vicente volcanic caves are only 2 km away and well worth a visit.

The beautifully restored São Vicente pedestrianized town centre, with cafés, restaurants, banks, chemist and other facilities is 4 Km away. A further 500 metres you come to the coast and sea, where you will find a further selection of restaurants and a couple of hotels.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

C'est le genre de location dont on se souvient longtemps ! Une très belle maison construite récemment et un beau jardinet très bien entretenu par Monsieur Dias.

La maison est grande, propre et très bien équipée (nous n'avons manqué de rien, car il y a beaucoup de petits détails qui facilitent la vie).

Linda et son mari sont très accueillants et très sympathiques.

Le village est très calme mais l'inconvénient est qu'il faut une voiture pour aller à Sao vicente car la maison est sur les hauteurs et la côté est raide !

Il y a un bar-petit commerce juste à côté de la maison mais c'est juste pour de petits compléments.

Sao Vicente est au centre d'un cirque montagneux (1000m) et c'est très beau

La région est très agréable : beaucoup de départs de ballades, baignades à 5 (Seixal) et 10 km (Porto Moniz), forêts

Excellent holiday accommodation - top marks!

  • 5 of 5

The house itself was spacious, well equipped, and in very good condition.

Although we spent most days out walking the garden would be ideal place to spend some time in.

In addition, there is a covered area in the garden where you can still enjoy the outside should one of those occasional showers come along! (this area is also set up so that you can dry some washing outdoors if you require - useful if you then go out for the day)

The owners are close by if required and are very friendly and welcoming.

Top marks - would recommend to friends and family.

Incredible Cottage

  • 5 of 5

One of the nicest cottages we have stayed in with amazing views of the surrounding mountains. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could think off. It's either newly refurbished or very well kept. The indoor BBQ is amazing and produces really tasty food.

The owners are very welcoming and made us feel relaxed on our holiday. This is our second time in Madeira and i definitely prefer this side of the island to the more conventional resorts in the South. I would recommend the property and the place to anyone.

mieux que sur les photos

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Ladeiros au Dinis Cottage. C'est une maison spacieuse qui a été rénovée avec goût conservant un côté typique mais avec tout le confort. Tout est parfait même un barbecue intérieur! Le jardin très fleuri est parfaitement entretenu . L'accueil est chaleureux , les propriétaires sont présents avec discrétion. La situation permet de rayonner sur toute l'île , de partir pour de belles randonnées et de profiter de la mer . Merci à Maria et Manuel pour leur accueil.

Nous reviendrons et nous recommandons ce cottage

Country cottage in a nice location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in this comfortable home. The gardens which belong to the house and to the owners' place which is adjacent are very well kept and must be even nicer as the year goes by. We used the indoor BBQ on several occasions, first time we have encountered such an opportunity! The immediate scenery was good and you are very close to the north coast road which we explored at length.
