The property is located in the neighborhood 'João Vieira' - an upscale residential neighborhood, safe and quiet. The historical village centre (the famous 'Quadrado') is about 10 minutes from the house, the beach is 20 minutes away, a charming walk through paths lined with hibiscus and bougainvillea.
At the top of the historical village square, the old white church overlooks the Atlantic from a high vantage point. Mass is celebrated there daily. The park behind the church offers visitors a magnificent view over the wide ocean. The old buildings on the 'quadrado” have now turned into cafés, restaurants, small stores and galleries exhibiting local artists. Late into the night, this square is a lively meeting-point for locals and tourists. It is also the site of traditional festivals which can last for days. At the weekend, you can watch the locals playing soccer on the square, or admire the muscular capoeira dancers.
