About Vera Tanger

Antonio is a career diplomat and Ambassador who together with me (Vera) has served in more than 12 countries around the globe, and raised a family of three children and four grandchildren.

The world is becoming very unstable and Terceira island is a safe haven, ideal for resting and getting away from the hustle of everyday life.

Our retirement is approaching and time to be with friends and change life style brought us to this destination. Having seen a lot around the world, this wooden house at this location caught our eye and spirit with its involving sensation, feeling of warmth and comfort.

Temperatures are mild in Terceira though winters can be rainy, but as said locally – you get the four seasons in a day. After buying furniture locally we decided to transform it and give color to contrast with the wooden walls bringing life and joy indoors.

We want to share our happiness and so decided to put up the house for short rentals. Come and experience.

Terceira is a natural preserved island most activities are nature related such as hiking, walking trails, jeep tours, whale/dolphin watching and professional scuba diving and snorkelling tours among others.

Diving and swimming off man-made platforms is a unique experience when you realize this island is located in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. The sea waters are crystal clear with all year round 24ºC/74ºF average temperature.

Star gazing during warm summer nights is amazing, particularly in August when meteors and shooting stars are more visible.

Pic-nic areas and children parks are spread out around the island at beautiful green areas and easy to spot.

Angra do Heroismo - World Heritage city - is well kept and represents local architecture at its best. Use the opportunity to visit the City Museum and learn more about its history.

Nearby visit the biggest European fortress at Monte Brasil and walk or drive up to the top for a beautiful city view.

On the other side of the island at Biscoitos go down to the seaside and stop at the WWI trenches carved on lava rock and image soldiers looking out for the enemy.

Terceira island is famous for popular festivities taking place all year round.

Starting with Carnival (Feb or Mar), Sanjoaninas is a highlight at end of June in Angra do Heroismo with musical, dance parades and food contest. Praia da Vitoria Festival takes place in August with concerts, food stalls and other shows.

Festas da Vinha happen late September at Biscoitos and celebrate wine and the vineyards.

Angra Rock festival happens in September followed by Angra Jazz in October.

Bullfights are a local tradition and happen throughout the summer month changing location and taking place at every local village.

Amazing place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We came to Terceira for my husband's 50th birthday with some friends. He was raised just up the street from this house.

From the minute you see the house you know it's going to be a great stay. It's so different from anything else on the island. The view is breathtaking.

The house itself was spotless! The kitchen was huge- great for entertaining.

So much space. Very comfortable.

Carlos the property manager was very helpful with anything we needed. We needed an extra bed and he managed to get one and deliver it the next day. He also came to save us with an extra key when we locked ourselves out.

The view and a glass of wine at the end of the day was the perfect way to unwind.

We enjoyed our stay here very much.

My only suggestions would be to give 2 keys to guests (in case you lock yourself out! ) as we did, maybe a few extra towels and blankets.

But overall this is a lovely place to spend your time on Terceira.

We look forward to coning back!

Thank you!

Lovely Azorean home with beautiful views

We enjoyed our stay, a wonderful well appointed home with all the amenities we could possibly need for our stay except the comfort level of the beds -

It was a great location from which we could explore the beautiful island of Terceira -

A big thank you to Vera and Carlos for the prompt response to our requests -

This house certainly does live up to its name with incredible sunsets!

Beautiful house and perfect for a large group.

  • 5 of 5

Terceira is a magical island , absolutely amazing. Angra (the capital ) is stunning , like a fairyland. The view from Monte Brasil over Angra and the island is breath taking you can drive or walk to the top . The island really is incredibly friendly and beautiful . We had 3 nights at this gorgeous house and loved every minute of our stay . We have only one negative and that was simply we wished we have stayed longer. The house is very modern , clean , large and basically perfect . Carlos met us at the airport and was very friendly and helpful .

The wifi worked perfectly and there was plenty of heating in the house.

You do need a car if you stay here .

Nice large house close to Angra.

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 people traveling to Terceira and this house accommodated us perfectly. It was very spacious with a lot of amenities including a washer and dryer, fast internet, TV with cable and a very large stocked kitchen. The property is completely fenced in which is nice with kids and there is a very large backyard with a view of the ocean. It's less than a 10-minute drive to Angra and there is also a pizza place across the street.

Our host was easy to communicate with and very helpful, we were greeted with a basket of local foods and wine. Carlos met us at the airport and gave us a very thorough introduction to the house and was available for any of our needs. We had a great stay.
