The space
One of the three Ribeiro Frio Cottages, Cedro is a two storey cottage surrounded by forest and well placed in the mountains of Santana.

Its privileged location, allows access to many hikes in this region, including the famous Vereda dos Balcões, the three highest peaks of Madeira, Pico Ruivo, Pico das Torres and Areeiro, among others.

When you arrive at the entrance of the property, you will see the cottages on the other side of the valley, and the mountains above them.
Take a moment to breath the fresh air while watching that beautiful landscape before you enter the private road up to the cottages.

In the middle of the road, you will pass a small bridge with a view to the small seasonal brook that feeds Ribeiro Frio, before arriving at the automatic gate that gives you access to the gardens and the parking space.

A small garden on your right along with the small stone path that leads to the picnic area marks the end of the road and beginning of the parking lot just above.

Once you arrive to the parking space you will see Cedro, the first cottage and its surroundings, the barbecue is just a few steps after the doorway.

Inside the cottage on your left, you can see the fully prepared kitchen. In the middle, a small space and the stairwell to the second floor. On your left you will find the living room where a wood burning stove and couch welcomes Cedro's guests with a feeling of coziness.

Going to the second floor, you can see a window with a beautiful view to the valey and mountains, the bathroom is just on the right side and the bedroom on the left.

The bedroom decoration with soft lights, wooden floor and the comfortable beds, create a simple and relaxing atmosphere suitable to relax after a long day of hikes.

Cedro's first house rule is make yourself comfortable and enjoy your stay!

Other things to note
Do not rent a weak car, the island has very steep roads.

The cottage is in a secluded location and the nearest supermarket is 15 minutes away, so purchase some food before heading to the cottage.

You don't need to purchase water unless you need a bottle for hikes.

The cottage is in a mountain, so bring some warm clothes and comfortable shoes with a soft sole for extra grip. Also some walking sticks and a flash-light if you plan to do some hikes.

To close the cottage door, you pull the handle up and turn the key.
