Overview

About the property

120m2 modern living space/ wonderful garden with ocean view/ rural yet central

Casa da Luz is located in a side road of village Cedros, by that rural quietness is ensured. None the less, due to the central position on the island, it is a perfect starting point for numerous activities.

Right after breakfast in the large and sunny garden, idyllically surrounded by beautiful nature, plenty of adventures wait to be explored. Later that day you can recap the highlights during a BBQ at the private fireplace. On a lazy day the large lawn invites to a sunbath. One thing is for sure: you will enjoy a breathtaking ocean view, idyllically surrounded by wonderful nature at all times.

The large house itself offers a lot of space, even for larger groups up to 8 persons. Traditional Azorean architecture combines with bright, open and modern inviting living atmosphere.

The open kitchen (gas stove, dish washer, micro wave, fridge-freezer …) builds the center place of the house together with the XXL dining area (rustic dining table for 12 persons), a perfect place for mutual cooking, dining, family games, relaxing or planning the coming activities.

The bathroom really offers a lot of space too and is fully equipped with shower, corner bathtub, modern washing machine, toilet and bidet. Fresh towels are given.

2 bedrooms offer the privacy your desire. The master bedroom in the upper floor has a king size bed and, upon request, an extra bed and also a baby travel-crib. You will wake up with a breath-taking ocean view. The second bedroom is in the ground floor. The 2 single beds and a sleeping couch can also be reached by a separate entrance from outside. An additional sleeping couch is in the living room, which allows a total of 8 sleeps.

The living area offers TV, Music and a wide choice of books, music CDs and DVDs. Additionally we have pens, paper and games especially for the little ones. For babys we can offer a simple stroller and a baby travel crib upon request. For the teenager inevitable: high-speed internet. By the way, all daily baby articles can be found in the supermarkets on the island.

Enough parking space in front of the house. The whole area is sheltered by a bamboo hedge which ensures privacy. Please let us know if you have any further wishes, we try to help as good as we can.

Schönes großes Haus mit traumhaftem Garten und Meerblick

  • 5 of 5

Das originelle Haus ist sehr großzügig gestaltet (vor allem das riesige Bad) und hat einen großen und wunderschönen Garten mit Meerblick. Es liegt sehr ruhig und man kann sich herrlich erholen. Der Vermieter (wohnt nebenan) ist nett und hilfsbereit. Man hört die Vögel zwitschern, hin und wieder eine Kuh muhen und die Kirchenglocke bimmeln. Man wohnt fast am Land und trotzdem sind die Geschäfte und Restaurants in der Nähe.

Einige Wanderwege sind auch gleich vor der Haustür.

Tolles Haus, toller Garten, tolle Lage - perfekt

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist im kleinen Dorf Cedros gelegen - damit hatten wir früh und abends unsere Ruhe, gleichzeitig war alles was wir brauchten in der Nähe: Restaurant/ Bar, Geldautomat, Bäcker, Pizzaria, Supermarkt...

Am schönsten war das tägliche Frühstück im herrlichen Garten vor dem Haus. Bei bestem Wetter war das Entspannung pur. Das Haus war sehr groß für uns zwei, picobello sauber und es gab alles was man braucht, fast wie zu Hause. Wir haben uns super wohl gefühlt.

Bei Fragen war Tino immer ein freundlicher Ratgeber, mit vielen Insider-Tipps. Am liebsten wären wir noch länger geblieben und haben uns fest vorgenommen wieder hierher zurück zukommen. Danke für einen perfekten Urlaub.

Gepflegtes Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Beim Betreten des liebevoll eingerichteten Ferienhauses fühlten wir uns sofort wohl. Es ist mit allem Komfort, z.B komplett eingerichtete Küche, gemütlichem Schlaf- und Wohnbereich sowie einem riesigen Esszimmer ausgestattet. Das Highlight war das sehr große Badezimmer mit Whirlepool. Alles war sehr sauber und sehr wohnlich. Der Service und die Betreuung durch Vermieter und Hausmeister bei Fragen und Wünschen war sehr gut, die Nachbarschaft hilfsbereit und freundlich. Hier wollen wir uns nochmal beim Vermieter für die Abholung und Rückbringung zum Flughafen bedanken, die wir vorher ausgemacht hatten. Alles in Allem ein perfekter Ort, an dem man nach langen Erkundungstouren rund um die Insel sehr gerne zurück kehrt. Auch der schön angelegte Garten lud zum Entspannen beim abendlichen Grillen ein. Das war ein sehr gelungener Urlaub an den wir gerne zurück denken und den wir bald wiederholen werden. Dieses Ferienhaus kann man nur weiter empfehlen....ein Objekt bei dem das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis absolut passt! Vielen Dank und bis bald!

Car: recommended

Cedros is a large village in the northern part of the island. The people here are very open-minded, friendly and helpful. Also Cedros is a small center for expats, such as us.

By its convenient position on the island, the village is a base of quietness, relaxation und at the same time a perfect starting point for numerous adventures and activities on the island. Faial is renowned for excellent hiking tracks, sailing, whalewatching, deep sea fishing, biking, horse riding and many more.

Everything on the island is in reach of about 30 minutes by car. And despite the fact you are in a “hikers paradise” we recommend a rental car or scooter to reach all the great sightseeing spots:

- Hiking tours can start directly in front of the house

- Snack-Bar, Cafe, small grocery store just 2 minutes by foot

- Excellent bakery just 7 minutes by foot (2 minutes by car)

- ATM machine 5 minutes by foot

- Larger grocery store 5 minutes by car

- Best Pizza on the island: 5 minutes by car

- Breath-taking natural swimming pools from 10 minutes by car

- Sady beach (black volcano sand) 15-20 minutes by car

- Airport 30 minutes by car

- Caldeira 30 minutes by car

- Capital Horta with shopping, ferry harbor, sailing yacht Marina, bars, restaurants and typical touristic flair 25 minutes by car

- modernes hospital and 24/7 emergency room 25 minutes by car

PUBLIC TRANSPORT

A bus stop is just 2 minutes by foot away from the house. The bus to Horta leaves 3 times a day (07:00 h/ 12:30 h/ 16:00 h), but we recommend to double check this info if needed, as this might be due to changes.
