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.

There is a lovely little natural swim area near the windmill and a charming bar. There are some annoying barking dogs in the neighbourhood and some very interesting migrating birds at night that sound amazing! we did Whale watching in Lajes and a trip to Madalena to get a ferry to Faial, also gorgeous, beautiful beach in Horta and wine tasting back in Madalena and a very nice restaurant (Anchor) in Sao Roque also a supermarket, there was also one in Lajes that we discovered. There are some annoying barking dogs in the neighbourhood and some very interesting migrating birds at night that sound amazing! We did quite a challenging walk of 4 hours in the village. Pico is just stunning.
