Situated on the slopes of Sete Cidade's crater, the 100 year old farming estate has an excellent view of the Atlantic Ocean and the village of Mosteiros. It is this privileged location in a area of farming and cow pastures that offers guests a special peace and quiet, interrupted only by the distant sounds of cow bells and local farmers. Sea-lovers encounter a one-of -a-kind experience down in Mosteiros at the 'Praia de Areia' (Sand Beach) and at the natural swimming pools hidden along the volcanic coastline. We suggest exploring the sea bottom next to the islets. In the village you can find three restaurants offering fresh fish, and ...a genuine pizzeria! Still other outings such as the places of Ferraria and Sete Cidades, offer more "adventures" for visitors. It is a small paradise 800 m from the village of Mosteiros, on the island of São Miguel. Four beautiful cottages are set in amphitheater within a spacious garden, each one completely private with its own garden, barbecue, tables and lounge chairs. The sea view and the sunset are unforgettable. Local shops of Mosteiros supply all that is necessary for everyday needs. The fishing port of Mosteiros guarantees a varied supply of fresh fish.

Cottages are tastefully decorated with traditional, rustic collections from the island of São Miguel and come well equipped to guarantee guests comfort. A laundry room with washing machine and iron/ironing board is available for guests (self-service).

Casas Novas (New Houses) - dettached cottages with 2 bedrooms (1 double and 1 twin), completely equipped kitchen, bathroom and an ample living room with fireplace. Sleeps up to 4 persons.
Discount prices for 2 persons on request.

This part of the island , situated within a vast network of rural roads and paths, is particularly favourable for horseback riding. From here, it is possible to ride up the slopes and hills of the Sete Cidades crater, continue on through the ridges, and finally , on down to the lake. Available horses range from easy riders for the less experienced riders, to Lusitano pure-breeds for the more discerning horseman. All rides are guided (guests who wish to ride should sign a 'responsibility waiver' contract).

The Azores are a natural haven of nine islands, perfect for anyone who loves sport and the open air.

You’ll definitely want to go swimming in the Azores, given the warm waters off the coastline. And there are natural swimming pools inland too, formed by volcanic action.

Boat trips, by motor or sail, are another attraction, with surfing, windsurfing and bodyboarding also available, with equipment for hire locally.

The islands, with their volcanic cones and humidity, plus their craters and lakes, possess some unique vegetation, creating a natural beauty you’ll want to explore. These are excellent surroundings for walking, with paths available at all levels of difficulty. For the more ambitious, take a guide to ensure you get the best out of this spectacular countryside.

In São Miguel or Terceira, horse riding also provides a pleasant way of exploring the islands.

However, perhaps the best way to view the unique landscapes, with their streams, waterfalls and green valleys surrounded by the sea, is to take to the skies with a plane tour. This will make your trip to the Azores unforgettable.

Property itself provided excellent views from a high vantage point overlooking the Atlantic ocean in the north west of the island. The high location itself appears to be prone to lots of sea mists, a 15 minute drive towards the south of the island usually brought you into the sunshine. You can access some fabulous scenery from this location however the roads are narrow, twisty and in poor condition on this part of the island in particular. I have no doubt the road condition will improve but be ready to meet an overtaking car on every corner - on your side of the road ! If you are hoping to dine out regularly you will need to make the 30 minute trip to the main city, Ponta Delgada. In fact if you need to purchase food and cater for yourself there are some good local mini-markets within a short drive but for serious shopping you need to head for the city again. As for the property itself it was adequate. If you suffer from back pains the beds will do you no favours. The house is clean and was serviced regularly (even if you had to look after replacing the loo rolls yourself). It is not equipped with an oven but does have all other facilities including a microwave. You can be assured of the therapeutic sounds of birdsong throughout the day however it was disturbed by the almost continuous barking of dogs from the village below and this is coming from someone who has five dogs. The owners were very pleasant as were all Azoreans we met. We would however have liked more orientation at the beginning of our holiday in terms of where to go for food, for best supermarkets, places to visit and how to get there, how to deal with the challenging driving etc.

The view from th garden is one of the best on the island. The cottages are generously separated providing privacy if desired (the cottage is detached not semi-detched as described o the website). The area is extremely quiet and peaceful and the property is well equipped. There are also two adorable dogs who belong to the house at the top of the hill. The ownr was extremely helpful prior to and during our stay. We intend to revisit. Note: the pictures on the website do not do the property justice.
Fabulous place the grounds are quiet and lovely, the cottage nicely presented. The views from the pretty sloping garden were excellent, especially for watching the sun set over the sea. The location is great for the crater lakes and for walks in the countryside on the crater slopes and and along the seaside. We found it hard to leave and definitely plan to come back.
