This studio is located in one of the most exclusive properties in the Azores. With an amazing view and the sea at its doorstep, this property is located in the beginning of an Azores Trail- Watercress Trail-, 12 minutes walking from Ribeira Quente parish. There are no roads to the property, so traveling is highly advisable. Guests will have to hike to the studio. We are a wi-fi free property.
This property is located in a peninsula, 12 minutes walking from Ribeira Quente parish. It is basically a beautiful garden surrounded by the ocean. There is a main house, used by my family during weekends and most of the time, and two small studios where we receive our guests. All three houses are independent and they do not face each other so everyone has their privacy. There is a barbecue area, a bar, a badminton field and a pool carved in the rock.
Guests will have access to the studio and its balcony (private), the garden, the barbecue and the pool area (shared with other guests).
The gardener will be at the property every day of the working week, from 8.00 am to 4.00pm. He is not fluent in English but sign language of the wonders and he's becoming an expert on that. I (Frederick) will spend part of my day in the property but because I manage other vacation rentals I will be absent most part of the day.
Cars can not make it to the house. Guests will have to park their cars in Ribeira Quente village and hike (around 12-15 minutes) to the house.
You should bring little luggage since you'll have to walk to the house.
In case you bring big suitcases and need help getting them to the house we can do that for you for an extra fee of € 30 (check-in and chek-out). Make sure you let us know in advance that you'll need this service.
