Guestbook comments from the manager

Sehr liebevoll eingerichtetes, sauberes und ruhiges kleines Ferienhaus. Perfekt zum Entspannen und gut geeignet als Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen. Aufgrund der Lage von Santo da Serra ist ein Mietwagen allerdings von Vorteil. Die Gastgeber sind wirklich sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Wir waren im Januar/Februar dort. Der Ofen war klasse. Von den Gastgebern wurde uns Brennholz kostenlos zur Verfügung gestellt. Alles in allem haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt!

Lova;ly cottage near the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely week in this delightful cottage in Santo de Serra. Great hosts who met us and provided madeira wine, fruit, local bread, ham and cheese on our arrival. Patricia was also really helpful finding me a dentist as my tooth had broken on the journey, plus giving good information on local restaurants we especially liked Lilys in Machico. It is an ideal location for visiting the East of the island and not far to Funchal either. We had a mixed bag of weather, but found if it was grey and raining when we woke up we only had to go down to sea level and further west and the sun would come out. We did have some sunshine every day and managed to go everywhere we wanted to. The log fire was lovely each evening and one of the channels on the TV showed films. Can't wait to return to Madeira again.

Very comfortable little bungalow

  • 4 of 5

Patricia and Fernando were very welcoming, and even provided some food and Madeira wine to start the week off well. The kitchenette is excellent, the sofa very comfortable in front of the tv and log fire ( cold weather that week). Lots of space in the bedroom, with a great bed and good shower. It's just outside a nice village, Santo Antonio da Serra, where you can buy local produce to cook at the cottage.

Nice and comfortable house. All perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the house. The place is quite and the house nice, well decorated. Big windows with lot of light. It has all what we needed.

Fernando was waiting for us, the woodstove was burning and the house was very warm. Everyday we made fire, it was really nice and comfortable to be in front of the fire. Lot of wood was ready for us.

Small kitchen with all necessary things and fridge.

Evrything was clean and well arranged.

Big garden to relax and eat outdoors, if weather is good.

Parking inside the property.

Well located to do trekking and visit other things. Easy to find.

Big supermarket at 10minutes.

Patricia and Fernando were very kind and friendly, they left some fruit for us and help us to arrange transport to do a hiking.

Hope we can come back to Madeira, we will choose same place to stay.

The cottage is well located and very well equipped. The owners Patricia and Fernando are very friendly and helpful, and they pay attention to detail to make your stay even more special (from the courtesy bowl of fruit and biscuits to the daily load of wood for the fireplace). They also arranged a cot for our baby and they even mailed the coats we left behind.

We had a great time in Madeira, partly thanks to Patricia and Fernando.

Thanks again!

We had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful cottage, very clean and proper with more than enough space for a family. The standard of accommodation, hospitality and helpfulness was outstanding. The location is superb/beautiful and peaceful. We hope we will be making several return visits in the future. The owners are amazing people, very kind, generous and welcoming who will do everything to meet your needs.

Thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a totally amazing holiday.

Santo Antonio da Serra is characterized by its extraordinary beautiful scenery, popular for its natural environment of romantic inspiration, provided by the lush vegetation, attracting many visitors.

The spectacular views of the mountains and its prestige location make Santo da Serra a fantastic place favoured by many professional Golfers and the home of the Madeira Island Open where it was played for the first time in January 1993 (PGA European Tour). It is now hosted every year in March.

The little country cottage is located right in front of the golf course fields where you can enjoy a round of golf and the magnificent views to the mountains and the to the sea.

The house is located in the owners garden, 5 minutes walk from the centre of the village and at the same time provides great privacy being outside overbuilt areas. The distance to Machico and Santa Cruz towns is about 9 km.

Other Activities: Golf
