About Sietske and Aurelio da Costa

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.

Why Sietske and Aurelio da Costa chose Porto da Cruz

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 cottage unique

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.

Very nice!!! You should go there.

  • 4 of 5

The days in the cottage were very relaxed. Maybe because this house used to be a pub where everybody came to have fun (I hope :) is that the reason why the atmosphere is SO nice. We really enjoyed being there and felt at home. We absolutely would love to go back there.

De dagen in dit huisje waren heerlijk ontspannen. Misschien omdat het vroeger een kroeg is geweest waar een iedereen voor zijn plezier kwam (hoop ik :) ), dat er daarom zo'n fijne sfeer in dit huisje is. Wij hebben ons er in ieder geval erg in thuis gevoeld. We zouden er absoluut nog eens naar terug willen gaan.

The friendly hospitality cottage Porta da Cruz.

  • 5 of 5

For the second time we have really enjoyed our stay in the cottage in Porto da Cruz. On the day of arrival we were welcomed by Sietske and Aurelio. The cottage was nice and tidy it felt a bit like coming home. They also gave us some useful information about wat to see and about the restaurants. We certainly would recommend this property to friends .

We hebben heel erg genoten van de vakantie in de cottage in Porto da Cruz en van de vriendelijke gastvrijheid van Sietske en Aurelio, die ons bij aankomst hebben verwelkomd. het voelde als een beetje thuiskomen ook al omdat we er al eens eerder een paar weken hadden gelogeerd. Ze hebben ons ook goede tips gegeven wat te gaan zien en betreffende restaurants.

Het is een eenvoudig huisje dat goed verzorgd en schoon is.

Wie weet gaan we nog eens naar het mooie eiland Madeira.

gîte très agréable, remarquable séjour.

  • 5 of 5

j'ai beaucoup aimé le gîte, très confortable, ainsi que l'accueil de la propriétaire. L'île est magnifique tout comme ses randonnées maritimes ou montagneuses. Ses villes et villages sont très attachants et ses jardins botaniques très riches. A vivre absolument.

Nous avons passées un agréable séjour au saint du Gîte de Siestke et Aurélio. Le gîte est spacieux et fonctionnel. De là nous avons réalisé plusieurs randonnées accessibles en voiture ou à pied très facilement, comme le Rocher de l'Aigle, la Levada du Chaudron vert ou encore la levada de castelejo.

Merci encore à eux pour leurs conseils et gentillesse.

An ideal place for surfers and those who want to do mountain hiking, levada (mini-canals) walks, fishing, rural tourism... you can also swim at the black sand beach of Porto da Cruz, or from June until September in the open swimming pool next to the ocean. You can visit a rum factory and taste their product, made out of sugar cane.
