Our review PART TWO..
….This is part two of our review, as we realized that the original text was far too long…
There are just too many too nice things to say about Filo and Pedro, that we didn't want to cut out the text…
The discussions we had from the first minute were very rich, deep and "profound" about aspects of life on Madeira and life in general. Filomena introduced us to the owner of the most famous madeiran embroideries producer Bordal, and when we arrived there we were immediately welcomed there by Susana herself and treated and advised like old returning customers. Simply amazing. Saying this not as a set phrase, but because we were - amazed - indeed.
Pedro also gave us valuable advise on best places to eat, pointing us exactly into the direction of the kind of restaurants we were looking for. Our last dinner at Abrigo do Pastor, on the heights over Camacho, just hours before our departure plane, remains epic in our minds.
The cottage in itself, as some reviewers mentioned, feels more spacious than the pictures suggest. The interior design is perfectly arranged, hence everything you might need (and wouldn't imagine in such a presumably tiny place) is there without it all getting crowded.
The ground floor boasts the kitchenette, which was well enough equipped for us to cook any dishes we aimed at during our stay. As mentioned, it looked like new every evening after we came home from the day and had left it in a… well… less clean state.. The bathroom is surprisingly spacious for a cottage of this size. The dining and living part of the room is close to the wood oven. Sofas are very comfy and, frankly, the feeling provided by the listening to the fire in the oven is just… Wood and ire starer will be provided daily!...
The top floor, under the roof, is a very spacious sleeping and working room. the bed is very large and of exceptional quality. One of the things I try to find out when reading reviews is about sleep quality.I am the kind of guest needing good hard
From a practical point of view, there is a brand new and pretty large new shopping complex just literally two minutes drive away, allowing rural feeling with all amenities close by. Funchal city centre is just about 20 min away, making a night out very practical. 20 minutes drive to the airport over the rapid carrigeway.
The most used hiking book used on the island is the ROTHER GUIDE. the Walk nr 9 (2012 edition), along the LEVADA DA SERRA literally passes by behind the house.
You are so lovely.
Big kiss to you and Edyta
The stone house is situated in a very beautiful garden with a lot of different Camelias that are superb when blooming specialy in winter.
Guest have their one garden but can also visit the main garden.
Is a very quite place just the sound of the birds one can listen.

Other Activities: walking in the levada( 3 mn from the Cottage) play snooker at the main house
Golf: The mild climate on the two islands is ideal for golf all year round. This, together with the exceptionally beautiful scenery, influenced the decision to build two golf courses in Madeira.
The Madeira Open has been held in spring in Santo da Serra since 1993. It is part of the PGA European Tour
