The 163-square-foot home is located in the village of Lomba on Flores Island - the island of flowers, which was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. On the upper floor of the house there is a spacious living and dining room with a fireplace open, the kitchen and the guest toilet. From the living room you have access to a 20 sqm terrace with views of the Atlantic.
On the lower floor there are two spacious bedrooms, a bathroom with tub and shower, and a laundry room are a washing machine.
The house is over 1000 square meter private garden. Also from the garden you look at the Atlantic. Here you can undisturbed by flowers surround the sun and enjoy the tranquility. With any luck, you pick sweet little island bananas.
3000 years ago, the last time volcanoes were active at this point. They left behind a romantic landscape with still visible Lavafurchen. The black lava stone surrounds and protects the lake baths, forming breathtaking majestic Cliffs, crater lakes and waterfalls are filled with fresh water. The island of Flores is likely to be the most beautiful island of the Azores. Also known as hydrangeas island shines Flores May-October changes in color to the Hortensieblüte. Everything is there - mountains, ocean, forests, clean water and clean air. The plant diversity is incredible, some plants, there is only on this island. A true paradise for active holidaymakers and nature lovers. The island is almost unreal in its unspoiled state. One has to breathe deeply and feel the need to remember that there is such a thing still exists.
The remote location is a challenge for motorists. The path to the house is narrow, ginger tubers can be picked out of the window; but there is a spacious parking space at home. Here we recommend more of a small car.
Peter's Castle is awesome. We absolutely had a fantastic time on Flores and want to go back to purchase property!
Gabriella and Mario, the care takers picked us up at the airport. With three children this was much appreciated after a long journey. They were both very helpful providing a lot of info about what to do and where to go. Flores is truly paradise found. Majestic scenery. good food and friendly people. The trails on the island and the boat ride to Corvo will take your breath away.
The house is beautiful and spacious with a commanding view of the mountains, valley and ocean.
We highly recommend Flores and Peter's home !
We enjoyed very much our stay in this cozy house. It is perfectly located in the village of Lomba if you want to be in a quiet environment, surrounded by nature. The view from the terrace is fantastic, overlooking a beautiful valley and the sea in the distance. The owners provided excellent service. Gabriela, the caretaker, came to get us at the airport and was always ready to help us. She is extremely helpful.
When we arrived it was raining "cats and dogs", but the warm welcome by Gabriela and Mario, the caretakers, and the appealing house made us feel at home immediately. We had it all : rain, fog, wind, clouds and...sun. Flores is beautiful. It offers some rich cultural attractions such as the more than excellent whaling museum and exciting well indicated trails. The bread from the local wood-oven bakery in Lomba and the cheese from the small cheese-making family businesses in Fajazinha and Fazenda are delicious. Vegetarians (and other foodlovers) must go to the Casa da Vigia in Faja Grande : excellent. Thanks to Gabriela, we managed to go to Corvo on our last day and saw a whale and many Cory's shearwaters. Unfortunately, did not hear them at night. We spend an unforgettable evening in Gabriela's house, together with some of her friends, among them an excellent viola da terra player and singer. It was always a great pleasure coming home to our very comfortable, ideally located and cosy holiday house. Everything was just fine. Only the weather could have been a bit more stable, but thanks to some longer-lasting sunny intervals, we have seen the lakes, Corvo, the coastline, the views down to the coast and the picturesque villages in all their glory. Due to the rain, however, some paths were very slippery, so we will have to return to Flores and to the house in Lomba, to further accomplish our extensive walking programm. We will certainly recommend our holiday house to friends.
Thank you, Peter and Marina, for sharing this magnificent home with us.
And thanks to Gabriela and Mario for all their help.

Une maison accueillante, avec beaucoup de charme! Vue superbe de la terrasse, où il est agréable de lire, de flâner et de prendre les repas. Beaucoup d'espace à l'intérieur. La cuisine est très fonctionnelle, le salon confortable. Les deux chambres sont grandes, la salle de bain immense, tout est propre (les photos sont exactes). Seul le déshumidificateur fait du bruit quand il fonctionne, mais il est indispensable. Les propriétaires font tout ce qu'ils peuvent pour faciliter le séjour de leurs hôtes, ils répondent rapidement aux courriels et sont attentifs aux questions. Sur place, grâce à l'accueil de Gabriela, tout est simple, efficace et chaleureux. Cette maison est un excellent point de chute à Flores: on peut marcher dans le village et descendre à la mer à pied de la maison (bonne balade, pas de baignade), et en voiture, on est à 10 minutes des commodités (épicerie, pharmacie, restos) et jamais très loin des lieux à visiter -- notamment la faja de Lopo Vaj, un lieu extraordinaire.
Lovely, comfortable, peaceful retreat on the beautiful island of Flores. Nice terrace looking out on the garden and sea. Very restful.
We have a dream, Peter help us to realize it ! Very good contact with him ; he gave us all the informations we need before going in the middle of the Atlantic ocean.
We wanted calm, nature and space : Peter's house was perfect ! Very comfortable, spacious with everything you need to spend a nice journey. We came from France for two weeks and our child (8 years old) has very appeciate to play in the garden, to discover flowers, stones....
We were welcome by Anatolie's and his wife and both of them could help you if you need something and could pick you up at the airport. Thank you for all to both of them !
The beauty of the island let you many pictures of happiness in your mind....for a long time you will remember your holidays. Like on a boat you travel with the wind, clouds, rain and sun of course ! We also appreciate to swim near the waterfalls in Lajes, the profusion of hydrangea, the volanic landscape.
Thank you Peter to let us share this magic place !
Hiking, diving, swimming, cycling and enjoying fresh air on the island of Flores - the Flower Island, the aptly named right and was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Far away from mass tourism, quiet, isolated, on a hillside and surrounded by greenery is the house an oasis of calm and a starting point for hikes: For example, the old port, where you can swim to a scenic descent and fishing can, or to a waterfall in whose sump you can cool off in pure drinking water. It is very likely that you will spend hours exploring the beautiful island without meeting other tourists. Natural seaside resorts covered by volcanic rocks offer charming sheltered from waves swimming lagoons. Several hiking trails of varying difficulty are spectacularly beautiful and take you to the crater lakes, waterfalls and beaches. Mild climate - tw + 15 ° C in winter and + 28 ° C in the summer -. Paradisiacal vegetation, mountains, forest and ocean merge into a picturesque beauty.
