Welcome to Cantinho Rural. We are Lina and Jerome Dehoux and this is our little spot of paradise in the peaceful countryside of Madeira.

Lina is originally from Madeira and Jerome is from Cholet, France. We both have many years experience in the hospitality industry (where we met) and we also own and run an established French Restaurant in the UK. We are both passionate about the countryside and will always do our very best to ensure that you have a wonderful time during your stay at Cantinho Rural

Our four self catering cottages, just outside of the village of Camacha, are set across 3.4 hectares (8.4 acres) of green, lush hillside. We have furnished each cottage in a typical Madeiran style with many personal touches. All of the essentials are there to make your stay comfortable and relaxed. (Yes, there’s a corkscrew and bottle opener!!). Please take a look at The Houses pages to see what’s included.

We are always improving the facilities at Cantinho Rural.


A few new additions to keep you busy outside, including a wonderful Pétanque terrain with an authentic set of boules.

Alongside we’ve also added a mini pool, perfect for keeping you cool and relaxed in the summer sunshine and a children’s play area too.

Cantinho Rural Hot Tub Spa

We now have a wonderful relaxing hot tub spa at Cantinho Rural for guests to use. Set in its own cabana, it’s the perfect place to relax and soak up the refreshing spa bubbles along with the scented fragrances from our candles and diffusers. Towels and pool robes are available on request.

Mountain Bikes

We also have Mountain bikes (and helmets) for you to ride. These are available on a daily, pre-booked basis.

Laundry Room

We have added a shared laundry room with washing machine and dryer.
