Sao Miguel Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom cottage to sleep up to 4 in a traditional Azorean rural village

Casa da Fonte is a holiday cottage located in the village of Algarvia in the heart of the Nordeste district, São Miguel island, Azores, Portugal. This rural house, which is equipped for guests with reduced mobility, has a double bedroom, a living room with a wood burning stove, a fully equipped kitchen, including a traditional wood-oven, and a bathroom. This self catering accommodation also provides a covered veranda with a barbecue grill and a large garden.

The stone house is all fenced and includes a parking with automatic door.

From the terrace, and from the outside, in general, you can see the ocean and the mountains.

For the entertainment of its guests, the Casa da Fonte provides, at no additional cost, satellite TV, DVD, HI-FI, Internet Wifi, a small library, indoor games, two bicycles and a croquet court.

THE HOUSE RECOVERY: As the house, located at Nordeste district, Sao Miguel island, Azores, were being rebuilt, we expressly tried to maintain their architecture, restoring the original volume of construction by using traditional materials and techniques. In addition some new elements were added aiming to improve the living conditions. These new elements are characterised by contemporary aesthetical options.

Some of the surrounding plots of land have been turned into gardens, where the peace and quiet of the countryside can be enjoyed. In the gardens, a wide range of ornamental plants can be admired. Some of these plants are endemic and some are fruit trees commonly seen in the backyards of Azorean rural houses.

For the interior decoration we used restored traditional Azorean antique furniture together with contemporary objects, in order to obtain high levels of authenticity and comfort.

Our house offers you a range of leisure equipment that you can use inside or outside at no additional cost

AZORES Islands and the NORDESTE district: Like pearls lost in the ocean, the Islands of the Azores, are located in the North Atlantic, about 1,500 km west of Lisbon. The archipelago is formed by nine volcanic islands and has a total area of approximately 2,333 km2.

On these islands you will find places of extraordinary tranquillity and beauty, where the blue of the sea and of the hydrangeas and the green of the fields and mountains range in hue from one island to another. The crater lakes have a unique beauty and mystical charm, associated with ancient legends. Their museums, churches and palaces house artistic and historical treasures and their traditions, popular festivities, handicrafts and gastronomy are still very much alive, comprising a five hundred year old heritage.

The Nordeste district, in particular, is the best kept secret on São Miguel Island. Its untouched nature, with a large area of laurel forest, inhabited by the Azores bullfinch, a unique species, and its breathtaking landscapes, with the deep blue se

ACTIVITIES TO EXPERIENCE: As a holiday destination, the Azores, Portugal, definitely suit all tastes. Here you will find golf courses surrounded by flowers and lush vegetation, walking trails, where you can observe nature, birds, endemic plants and volcanic phenomena; cetacean and marine life observation; grey sandy beaches inviting you to spend hours of fun in the sea, which is sometimes calm, and where the waves are often ideal for surfing. Tennis, horseback riding, sailing and big-game fishing are among the many activities that you can choose for an unforgettable holiday.

Although referred in old documents since the 16th century, Algarvia population was scarce or non-existent before the 17th century. The settlement was named “Algarvia” due to one of its inhabitants, a woman whose origin was the Algarve.

Algarvia has strong rural characteristics. Originally a 17th century chapel, the church was rebuilt in the 19th century. It is small and plain with a single tower and one aisle. The high altar is humble but beautiful.

The main trail to Pico da Vara, the highest mountain of the island, starts here. The former lookout place for whales has a wonderful view of the ocean and of Pico da Vara.
