Overview

About the property

Casa do Almagre is a rural cottage ideal for those looking for relaxing holidays on the island of Santa Maria (Azores). Dating from 1937, the house was restored in order to maintain the traditional Mariense architecture and value the materials originally used in its construction such as stone, clay and wood. Despite its rustic character the house is equipped with all the facilities.

Casa do Almagre is a registered vacation rental (RRAL 353) and in 2015 it received the Miosotis Azores award as a recognition of its good environmental and social practices.

Features

The house is set on a plot of land consisting of a small wooded hill, a threshing floor overlooking the ocean and a large area of grassland.

The house has a kitchen and living-room area in open space, with a sofa bed, stove and oven, traditional wood fired oven, microwave oven, fridge and freezer combo, and espresso machine; a large bedroom with double bed; and a large bathroom with washing machine.

Capacity

Casa do Almagre is ideal for 1 couple or a family (2 adults + 2 children). For families with infants or young children (up to 2-3 years) a baby crib, baby tub and a feeding chair are available.

Location

The house is located in Fonte do Jordão, in the parish of Santo Espírito at approximately 5 km from Maia, 9 km from Praia Formosa and 12 km from Vila do Porto.

Far from the madding crowd

  • 4 of 5

A great part of the mystery and beauty of Santa Maria resides in its rugged agricultural landscapes. This property offers a chance to immerse yourself in this context in a thoughtfully renovated farmhouse where the breeze off the sea is almost always present and great walking trails start at the end of the lane. Joana and Laurinda are kind and attentive hosts. The property is well equipped and very comfortable (though we would have liked an alternative to the K pod coffee machine, the pods for which seem to be virtually unobtainable in the neighbourhood). The collection of books, maps, and information was very helpful in filling in gaps in our understanding about the island and its history. We're ready to book again!
