About the property

Time for everything

Holiday house, situated in a rural and summer environment.

With a superb view of São Jorge, it is about 300 meters from a bathing area with natural pools.

Very quiet area, mainly composed of tourists, emigrants and vacationers. The parish is small and relatively distant from the main villages (Lajes do Pico, São Roque and Madalena). Public transport is scarce, so it is recommended to use a car, although the locals easily offer a ride if necessary.

The grounds have free parking space and free wi-fi. It has other amenities such as cable TV, barbecue or games (cards, dominoes, miniature chess).

The sunset is magnificent and on clear nights you can see the Milky Way.

Ideal for families or couples.

Proved to be an excellent choice and exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we booked until after we left Paulo and family looked after us and provided great and accurate information and advice which simply meant we could just get on with our holiday. The view is as the picture and at night... Well if you stay up till the stars shine then you are in for a treat!

A car is a definite not a maybe and for getting into the inter-land parts of the island a car, not a 4x4 is fine.

Take time to sit with the locals in a cafe and just watch the interaction... It's fun and educating!

We would definitely visit again and stay at this house and would suggest you do the same.

Baixa da Ribeirinha
Car: necessary

The House of Baixa da Ribeirinha is situated in a small village, relatively far from the main towns. It is therefore an ideal place to rest.

It is about 300 meters from a swimming area, with natural pools.

In the Village of Lajes you will find the Whale Museum or whale-watching activities, as well as bathing areas, always covered by the Pico Mountain.

Near the Ribeirinha is the Calhau area, also with a natural swimming pool, or the Ribeiras, with swimming pool and bar.

The Lagoons are a place to visit inside the island, whose access is possible to be made about 6 km from the house - with signage.

Enjoy the belvedere, about 7 km from the house.
