A Quinta’ MORAZES ‘located on the north shore of São Miguel was for a long time a wine-producing property. The main building with its two floors was built in the 19th century; the ground floor had a wine cellar and the top floor a summer residence.
Some years later was added an extension 'the Stone house' and labyrinth garden. Then in 2000 the main house underwent remodeling; the wine cellar was transformed into a two bedroom apartment to accommodate guests, the top floor Remain for family use and the stone house as a art studio.Today guests can contemplate the centennial garden, ocean and mountain views, or simply enjoy a drink by the fire pit.
I love to spend my afternoons at the art studio painting or simply having a drink with friends or guests.
There are two dogs in estate but, if guests are uncomfortable their presence they can be kept locked away.
Note If you are an artist and wish to use the art studio please contact me for information availability and conditions.
The apartment is very calm and private, there are no other guests in property and you will not be disturbed.
Santa Barbara beach is about 10 minutes by car, and not far from the town of Ribeira Grande
location, nature, country side, best surf beaches, and the outdoor fire pit is great way to relax after a long day of activities.
Carlos picked us up in the airport, which helped a lot because the house would have been difficult to find, probably. The house is perfect, clean, equipped with all what's needed and very nicely decorated. Not to mention the great garden. Coming from a big town, we had a slight feeling of isolation, but the house and the garden are very comfortable. Carlos was very helpful and available during the whole stay.
Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Urlaub hier. Carlos, der Vermieter, hat uns schon am Flughafen freundlich empfangen und uns die gesamte Zeit mit der gebotenen Zurückhaltung, aber immer ansprechbar begleitet und uns sehr oft schnell und zuverlässig geholfen. Das war wunderbar! Das Objekt selbst hat einen herrlich großen Garten mit Feuerstelle und vielem mehr. Nicht nur, aber auch für Kinder ist das Haus mit den beiden Aussichtsterrassen und dem großen Garten ideal. Nur wenige Minuten entfernt befindet sich der - sofern der Wellengang nicht zu hoch ist - kindergeeignete Sandstrand von Santa Barbara.
'A Quinta' is on the north shore of the island of São Miguel, in Rabo de Peixe, a fishermen's village. A 15-minute drive through excellent roads separates it from the international airport of Ponta Delgada, the island's capital. Very close to 'A Quinta' you can find the city of Ribeira Grande, with beaches and restaurants; the Batalha 27-hole Golf Course and clubhouse; the natural hot water pool of Caldeira Velha; the natural park and lake of Lagoa do Fogo; the hot springs of Caldeiras da Ribeira Grande (all of them a 10-minute drive away).
