Description

Azores Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms + extra for 2, 2 bathroom, living room, kitchen, balcony facing sea

Old rural house restored and extended with ecological and healthy materials , on the southern coast of S. Jorge facing Pico.

Situated in one of the most beautiful 'fajãs' (agricultural areas near the sea), it has one of the highly recommended hiking trail on the island at its door step. Two other beautiful start 1 km away.

The location is ideal for those who enjoy walking, fishing, diving, reading, painting. It has no TV.

The house, beyond its 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room and kitchen, it has an additional area that can accommodate two more children. The kitchen is fully equipped and prepared for those who love cooking.

The generous balcony is overlooking the sea and the mountains, and has more than enough space to place the outdoor table where it can sit 8 - 10 people. Out in the garden with fruit trees recently planted there is a bread oven and a grill.

The area has a small community and friendly neighbors ready to help. For groceries, some organization is necessary because there is only one provider of daily bread and a coffee shop serving the famous coffee produced locally and that only serves mainly drinks of various kinds.

Restaurants are available about 15 minutes drive.

Far away and other worldly

My wife and I spent a week at this wonderful house and it was certainly the most unforgettable week of our month long stay in the Azores.

We spent 10 days prior to arriving in Sao Miguel and had a wonderful time there.

I was really looking forward to our week on Sao Jorge to do some hiking and to really drop off the face of the earth. I found all that and more in Luis's and Margirida's home in Faja dos Bodes. When we drove up we could not believe that beautiful setting that the house was located.

The terrace outside the living room was many a night of sunsets, bottles of wine and great food that we cooked in the very well stocked, efficient kitchen.

The small village is a step back in time and it was so nice starting and ending our day at this unforgettable house and location.

We look forward to our next trip to Sao Jorge.

Relax in a wonderful house in perfect surrondings

  • 5 of 5

Sunny relaxing days on the terrace with the view of mountains and ocean, cooking in a very well equipped kitchen and at night listening to the seaguls and the ocean. We really enjoyed our stay in this beautifully restored home, with lots of room and space to relax.

Dias Inesqueciveis

  • 4 of 5

Além do local fantástico a casa é perfeita, tem uma certa harmonia, bem equipada e tudo pensado ao pormenor.

O som do mar e da natureza, faz-nos desligar da nossa rotina, é maravilhoso.

Passamos dias inesquecíveis e recomendamos a casa, a quem quer passar uns dias nesta ilha magnifica.

Partimos com saudades de voltar...

Laura Morais Nunes e família.

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

We just arrived from Sao Jorge, and this house was the best we have stayed in the Azores. It is beautifully restored, really confortable, and placed in a far corner of the island. We were two people.

The wooden deck facing the awesome views of the island and the sunset is just perfect to spend the evening and enjoy calm breakfast and dinner.

It is located on a small village at the end of a gravel road, really quiet, surrounded by vineyards. The only sound is the birds and the waves. And the seagulls at night.

The house is not big, but the restoration is so smart and detailed that we were really confortable. You can see how Luis and Margarida love the house and took care of all details. And there are some books with recommendation of trails and places to visit in the azores. The house is located in the way of one of the most beautiful trails of the island.

The only disadvantage of the house is that it is a little lost in a far place of the island, and you will need a car to reach it. But this location, so quiet and scenic, is also what makes the house so special and unforgetable.

We would surely recommend it!
