We were made very welcome by our host family who live in the same building but with a separate entrance. There was a fabulous view of Sao Jorge from the courtyard, and we occasionally saw whales spout in the distance. A car is essential. It is at the other end of the island from the airport. There is a small shop and cafes in the village, but only one restaurant 10 minutes drive away, otherwise you would have to go to the next town. There is a nice coastal walk nearby. The kitchen had enough equipment for the two of us to cook simple meals for ourselves. Thanks to the Dietters for a nice relaxing stay

We loved to sit at the top of the steps admiring the views of the sea. Nice quiet spot for relaxing. Car essential, I would say. Prainha has an ocean swimming pool, a bar and a surprisingly well equipped shop about 2 km from the house.
