Year after year this cottage has been the main holiday destination for us as a family. I love this island, the pleasant climate, the beautiful nature and the friendly people.
The property was remodeled in 1993 by my father-in-law. It became ours in 2000 and in 2012 some friends who visited us gave us the idea to start renting it out to people, who love the countryside of Madeira, rather than being in tourist resorts.
What makes this house special to us is the unique location, close to the mountains and to the Ocean. The walls of this cottage are very thick and made out of rocks, as houses were made in the old days. They don't make these kind of houses anymore in Portugal.
