Villa overview - owner's description

Tucked away in the sleepy, rural village of Faja da Ovelha, Villa Theo is a beautiful villa brimming with character. From the outside the villa appears to be single storey, but inside three mini-staircases take you to different parts of the villa creating plenty of space and privacy. Polished wooden floors run through most of the villa, complimented by lots of attractive dark wood furniture and soft furnishings in warm rich colours. The spacious lounge is a great place to relax after a day enjoying one of the areas stunning walks, and from here patio doors lead out to a fabulous pool area where you can relax in the sun and look straight out across the sparkling Atlantic Ocean. A low roof for the pool is available in the winter, so you can swim comfortably all year round.

he name Fajã da Ovelha is believed to be owed to the fact that, once upon a time, a shepherd lost a sheep (ovelha) in the fajã – a kind of platform, which in this case the sedimentation made possible to be used by men – and that episodes such as this would have been the origin of the civil parish such as we know today.

Fajã da Ovelha, like most civil parishes on the Island, originated from a very old chapel, whose patron saint was São Lourenço. Resembling what happened in the rest of the country, and in the catholic world in general, people started living around the temple, creating with time a populated area.

Just before 1573, Fajã da Ovelha was established, with an autonomous ecclesiastic parish.

The oldest official document concerning this ecclesiastic parish dates back to 1553. In it, reference is made to the church of Fajã da Ovelha, the name by which the place was already known.

It is due to this document that one believes that the name of this place has always been Fajã da Ovelha, since the beginning of the colonization or even since the time the head of a new ecclesiastic parish was established.
