House and Facilities


Casa das Faias from outsideThe recently built house was made to fit in with nature rather than disrupt it. It consists of two stories, connected with an open winding staircase. On the ground floor, there is a comfortable living room, kitchen and bathroom, on the first floor, a large bedroom with both a double and a single bed, and great views across the ocean and down to Ponta Delgada from both the windows and the balcony. The bedroom window has been nicknamed “sunset window” by some guests, because from here you have the best view of the sunset! The sofa on the ground floor also converts into a double bed. The living room has a wood burning stove, for those occasionally chilly winter nights. The house has been decorated with sensuous but discrete photographs by Sam Haskins. Additionally, the house has a spacious patio, which is perfect for breakfast or dinner or just to relax, and a small garden with a lawn, flowers, and a wood stack. The owners provide a welcome package of fresh free range eggs, herbs and seasonal vegetables from their garden. The house sleeps 2-5 people.
