About the property

1 bedroom, 1 living room with double sofa bed, kitchen, communal garden

The House of Zé is a traditional house in basalt recovered and converted into two apartments T1. Located by the sea in the friendly town of herds, Sao Jorge Island, Azores.

Apartment on the ground floor with a double bedroom and sea views, living room with two sofa beds (one double and one single) and integrated kitchen. Fully equipped with gas stove, oven, refrigerator, washing machine, microwave, dishes and towels for the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.

Apartment on the 1st floor of the house, with double bed room (both windows sea view), living room with double sofa bed, large, fully equipped kitchen with stove and oven, fridge, microwave, washing machine, crockery and other utensils. The house also has available cloth kitchen, bedroom and bath.

Why stay in the house of Joe? Because we fell asleep listening to the sea, we can go for a swim before breakfast in the garden overlooking the islands of Pico and Faial or end your day with a fish for dinner barbecue.

The tranquility of the area, where only there are two houses inhabited and does not pass traffic guarantees you the deserved rest.

We count on you in the House of Zé!

Estivemos 10 noites neste apartamento. Houve de tudo...silêncio da noite,marulhar de mar,pios das cagarras,fins de tarde espectaculares...

Recomendo este lugar longe do barulho para quem qer realmente descansar.

O dono,familia e amigos de familia fizeram-nos sentir fazer parte deles. Muito atenciosos, servis e amigos.

Obrigada por podermos ter partilhado um bocadinho de vida convosco. Bem Hajam.

Quando voltarmos a S.Jorge será nesta casa que ficaremos.Obrigada a todos

Excellent location on Sao Jorge

Excellent location, very quiet, close to a swimming place. Beatiful view on the Pico Island. Jose and his family were very friendly and very helpful. Thank you for the very warm welcome!

Nous avons passé un séjour magnifique dans la maison en bord de mer de José. Maria, sa charmante voisine et tante a été très prévenantes envers nous. La maison est très confortable et le point de vue sur la mer vraiment extraordinaire.

Ferias Maravilhosas

  • 4 of 5

Ficamos de ferias na casa do Ze nas Manadas, S. Jorge Acores desde o dia 14-28 de Agosto de 2014 .Gostamos imenso do local e adoramos adormecer ao son dos Cagarros. Foi uma experience maravilhosa. Foi um pezar que as ferias acabaram tao cedo e pouco tempo passamos no apartamento. Esperamos voltar no futuro e passar mais tempo a olhar para o mar, ver o Pico, e ouvir os cagarros.

During our vacation from 14-28 of August 2014 in S. Jorge Azores we stayed at a casa do Ze in the Town of Manadas, S. Jorge Azores. We loved the area and falling asleep with the sound of the Cagarros. It was an wonderful experience. The vacation was too short leaving us with little time to enjoy the apartment view. We hope to go back sometime in the future and spend more time enjoying the beautiful ocean view, the view of Pico island, and listen to the Cagarros.

The landscape of the herds is very picturesque is not to enter the mountains and the sea. It comes with manor houses, scattered among old orchards and crop fields. It is a very mountainous village which however also features flat spaces especially those that are closer to the coast, which in this locality are known as Terreiros. The best most of these, planted by the sea, extends to the vicinity of the Church of Santa Barbara, and even with the Port of Herds.

From the mountains that is overhanging, provide several springs of plentiful water supplying several fountains. Its ports mainly the Port of Terreiros is widely used for sports and summer fishing.

Herds belongs to the Faja of Souls, which is considered one of the places of interest of the parish. It is in practice a land ledge between the cliffs and the sea, harnessed to the maximum due to its microclimate. It presents fertile orchards and crop fields, which grows coffee, vineyards, tropical fruits and beautiful dragon trees (Dracaena draco).
