Très belle maison et superbe verger dans le jardin. Les propriétaires sont adorables. Le +: le barbecue intérieur avec le bois coupé disponible.

Entspannung Pur – tolles Haus mit sehr schönem Garten
Ein sehr schönes, gepflegtes Haus mit allem was man braucht. Dazu ein wirklich sehr schön angelegter, kleiner Garten mit schönen Sitzmöglichkeiten und Ausblick auf die grünen Hügel der Insel. Zum Meer sind es ca. 5 Minuten mit dem Auto – das auf der Insel unbedingt zu Empfehlen ist. Top.

Traumhaftes Ferienhaus mit allem was man für eine erholsamen Urlaub braucht
Tollrestauriertes Ferienhaus und sehr engagierte Eigentümer, dir sich liebevoll kümmern, dabei jedoch immer dezent im Hintergrund bleiben. Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet wasan braucht und vielen Dingen darüberhinaus. Die Küchenaussrattung ist wie zuhause. Hier kann man sich wirklich erholen.

Lameiros Madeira
Sehr schönes gepflegtes Haus und Garten. Küche sehr gut eingerichtet, es fehlt an nichts. Wirklich gut für 5 Leute geeignet ohne sich zu stören, genial wenn man sich draußen aufhalten kann. Die Vermieter haben uns einen schönen Obstkorb und Avocados aus dem Garten als Willkommensgruß auf den Küchentisch gestellt. Sehr nette Vermieter! Ein Minuspunkt, keine Heizung! Lediglich 2 elektr. Radiatoren. Das ist halt im Süden leider oft so. Für Februaraufenthalte etwas wenig um etwas Behaglichkeit in einem großen Haus zu verbreiten.

First Class
This is a beautifully renovated and extended stone property, and it is very comfortable. The kitchen is large and properly equipped for a self catering stay. The house is set in a lovely garden shared with the owners who encourage guests to pick fruit from their trees, which is a treat to someone from England! The area is quiet except for the church bells which fortunately do not chime between 9pm and 8am. The owners are very helpful and friendly whilst not being in any way intrusive. Close to a small town with restaurants.

Thank you very much.
Excellent
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

Beautiful holiday house in wonderful Madeira
Dinis Country Cottage is a beautifully restored house with a lovely garden, located in the middle of a village, Lameiros, in the North of Madeira. Surrounded by green mountains and near the Atlantic Ocean a fantastic starting point to explore the island. Everything we needed was provided in the house by the wonderful owners Maria and Manuel, who were very welcoming and always helpful if in need of something / answering our questions. Booking all went smoothly too, thank you! We had a fantastic time staying in Dinis Country Cottage and loved Madeira. We highly recommend a stay!!!

Thank you very much for your lovely comments and recommendation. Very much appreciated.
Incredible Cottage
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.

Thank you very much for your lovely comments and recommendation which is very much appreciated
Country cottage in a nice location
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.

Thank you very much for your glowing 5 star review. Much appreciated and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay.
This is THE place to stay
The property is a quality rebuild/refurbishment and it is clear that no expense has been spared in creating a well designed, well appointed & spotless holiday home. Combine that with friendly and helpful owners who live in an adjacent property then, unless you are looking for a city break this really is the place to stay: Nestling in the foot hills of the mountains, near the coast (north & south) and yet only 30 minutes from Funchal it really is in an ideal location - away from noise but close to everything you might want to visit. Do not hesitate to book this property.

Was für ein wunderbares Ferienhaus
Wir verlebten mit unseren Freunden eine sehr schöne Woche auf Madeira. Dinis Country Cottage ist ein wunderbares Ferienhaus. Alles ist neu und top in Ordnung. Es ist genau wie auf den Bildern zu sehen. Da ist nichts geschönt. Die Vermieter Maria und Manuel sind sehr freundlich. Wir haben es genossen, abends im Garten zu sitzen und in die Berge zu schauen. Auch als Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen auf der Insel fanden wir es günstig. Es ist sehr zu empfehlen für Urlauber, welche Ruhe lieben und die Hektik größerer Siedlungen meiden.

hat an absolutely lovely review. We are delighted you enjoyed the pleasures of Dinis Country Cottage and its beautiful peaceful surroundings. The owners are equally lovely and take great care of their guests.
Don't miss this - stay at Dinis Cottage !!!
We had an excellent week in this property which is set in a typical Madeiran village. The listing was faultlessly accurate and the cottage was well equipped, spotlessly clean, and very well-maintained. It has a very nice garden with views of the surrounding mountains - ideal to sit in and sip a cold beer, or two, following a tough days walking. It was also very reasonably priced. The property owners, Maria and Manuel are very friendly, extremely helpful and knowledgeable and appropriately unobtrusive (but availble if needed). It was also a bonus that they both spoke exceptional english !! Small local shops and bars are available in the village (Lameiros) and in Sao Vicente, a few minutes away by car. A large supermarket is about 15 minutes away, also by car, on the road toward Ribeira Brava. You may have gathered by now that a car is almost an essential requirement for a stay here. The cottage is close to the north coast and a number of good walks, levada and otherwise, can be reached from here. Once the ER110 re-opens (currently closed near Encumeada due to rock-falls) this property will be perfectly placed to reach all parts of the island. As it is at the moment, it isn't really a problem but be prepared for slightly longer drives to get to walks in the Paul De Serra area. All in all we had a very good week here and we recommend it highly. As an aside the booking process was straightforward and Norberta was exceptionally helpful and friendly . "Our Madeira" were a pleasure to book with and we will undoubtedly use them again.
