Situated on the slopes of Sete Cidades crater, this 100 year old rural 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. This estate is a small paradise 800 m from the village of Mosteiros, on the island of São Miguel. Six beautiful cottages are set within a spacious tree-shaded garden, each one completely private with its own barbecue, tables and lounge chairs. The sea view and the sunset are unforgettable. Upon arriving, guests will find everything they need for quick meals - fruits, jams, cheese. eggs, bread, milk, etc.. 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) (T2 type) - dettached cottage with 2 bedrooms, equipped kitchen, 1 bathroom and an ample living room with fireplace. Outside, there is a large private garden with magnificent sea views. Sleeps up to 4 persons.
Discount price for 2 persons occupancy 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.
