Comfort and modernity in a typical Azorean house which was recently rebuilt. Life runs slowly and allows you to enjoy every moment of pleasure in this 4 bedroom villa that was reborn from the ruins through a careful architectural project. Its exceptional location, between the volcanic mountain and the vast ocean, simultaneously invites relaxation and adventure. Next to small beaches and rock pools, is the perfect getaway for a memorable vacation. The spacious common areas and terrace with a magnificent view of the blue Atlantic, invite families, couples or groups of friends to enjoy a unique vacation far away from the bustle of city life. The house, born in 2011, favors contemplation and welcomes us with sophisticated details, after a day of intense activity that can be practiced throughout the island.
The house, shaped to its old form, between walls of volcanic stone, assumed a new function, where it privileges comfort and light input to enjoy of the stunning landscape. It has 3 bedrooms (one suite) on the first floor and kitchen, living room and roof terrace on the upper floor. Each bedroom has two single beds and closet with mirror. The suite has a private bathroom. On request we can provide cots and high chair for babies. The open kitchen is fully equipped and is perfect to gather friends and family around regional delicacies. If you prefer you can choose to dine outdoors, between sky and sea, in the terrace that works as an extension of the kitchen. The living room has comfortable sofas, books and games for a pleasant evening. We provide free wireless internet and cleaning service is possible at request.
Outside, the local flora prevails and the green extends up to where the sea starts. For comfort and safety, cement was the option, when it came to rebuild the house. However, the ancient stones were preserved to incase the new construction, taking us to the genuine spirit of the past.
The story of the house takes us to the past of the island, when the main economic activities were whaling and agriculture. Belonging to a blacksmith (profession widely recognized at the time) the house has survived the test of time, enduring many storms and earthquakes. The quality of its construction may still be seen, through the large doorways and windows as well as the quality of its stones.
Sustainability is a constant concern of the owners, whose choice fell on local raw materials and the enhancement of regional resources. Rainwater is collected and the protection of fauna and flora is promoted among visitors.
