A 1925 Volcanic stone built house, offers a glimpse of the traditional ways of the Azorean people. Located among creeks, waterfalls and reserved beaches it´s a perfect stay for summer times. A car is a must in order to go to the nearest Village.
Rustic house with the charm of old times. Place where I used to spend since a young age, my summer holidays. With a wide view over the river creek and the ocean, surrounded by beaches and waterfalls, this is an ideal house for those wanting some peace and comfort, near green fields and black sand beaches.
Vila Franca is only a few minutes by car, there you can find all kinds of markets, restaurants, etc. You can also pick some adventures like whale watching, scuba diving, hiking or bike tours in Vila Franca Marina. Surf is also good in some spots near the house.
Guests have access to all features of the house.
Interaction with guests
Because summer times are our "busy season" we don't have much time to spend with our guests, nevertheless we always welcome everyone personally, if not at time of arrival, a little later in the evening. This way we can explain house details, connect and inspire unforgettable times.
We also have a gardener that usually passes by the house to water the plants and to welcome you with season fruits and vegetables.
Other things to note
It is important to understand this is a real rustic house. The house was built in 1925. It is an authentic Azorean house, built with traditional materials like volcanic stone walls, endemic wood ceiling structure and native clay roof tiles.
Because of this and because it is surrounded by nature some animals may enter the house like: mosquitos, ants, cockroaches, centipedes, small lizards, birds, bats, mice. Although any of these animals can enter only the first four are more likely to be found inside.
None of these animals are dangerous or cary any kind of disease, except mice. Mice have 50% chance of having leptospirosis, this disease spreads through contact with mouse urine and feces. They are likely to be found in good refuge places like piled wood or storage cabins. The best way to avoid contaminations is to wash your hands after going for wood or at any other place that might have mice. Although it is not impossible, mice have never been found inside Rustic House.
Centipedes can also leave a rash in your skin resembling a mosquito bite.
