This beautifully renovated stone cottage sleeps four in two bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom. Hidden amid rolling green countryside with views of the sea and neighbouring islands, birdsong fills the garden and the rest of the world seems far away.
The bright and airy interior has a well-equipped kitchen (including dishwasher and washing machine) combined with an open plan living / dining area. The two comfortable bedrooms lead off this, making the cottage ideal for a family of four or a group of friends.
Make the most of long summer evenings watching the light change on Pico’s summit as the sun sets. Grill fresh fish on the barbecue and dine on the terrace under the stars. If you don’t feel like cooking, there are several restaurants nearby and a wide selection in the main town of Horta, a 20-minute drive away.
An easy walk through the fields takes you to Porto da Eira, a spectacular swimming hole where locals love to sunbathe, dive from the rocks and swim in a deep, protected pool. Snorkeling is great around the rocks. Return to the cottage and luxuriate in the outside shower with hot and cold water!
Sorry, but due to steep drops to the river we don’t recommend this cottage for children under 12 years.
