About Vera Tanger

Antonio is a career diplomat and Ambassador who together with me (Vera) has served in more than 12 countries around the globe, and raised a family of three children and three grandchildren.

The world is becoming very unstable and Terceira island is a save heaven, ideal for resting and getting away from the hustle of everyday life.

Our retirement is approaching and time to be with friends and change life style brought us to this destination. Having seen a lot around the world, this wooden house at this location caught our eye and spirit with its involving sensation, feeling of warmth and comfort.

Temperatures are mild in Terceira though winters can be rainy, but as said locally – you get the four seasons in a day. After buying furniture locally we decided to transform it and give color to contrast with the wooden walls bringing life and joy indoors.

We want to share our happiness and so decided to put up the house for short rentals. Come and experience.

Atlantic Sunset House in Terceira island, Azores, Portugal

Amazing place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We came to Terceira for my husband's 50th birthday with some friends. He was raised just up the street from this house.

From the minute you see the house you know it's going to be a great stay. It's so different from anything else on the island. The view is breathtaking.

The house itself was spotless! The kitchen was huge- great for entertaining.

So much space. Very comfortable.

Carlos the property manager was very helpful with anything we needed. We needed an extra bed and he managed to get one and deliver it the next day. He also came to save us with an extra key when we locked ourselves out.

The view and a glass of wine at the end of the day was the perfect way to unwind.

We enjoyed our stay here very much.

My only suggestions would be to give 2 keys to guests (in case you lock yourself out! ) as we did, maybe a few extra towels and blankets.

But overall this is a lovely place to spend your time on Terceira.

We look forward to coning back!

Thank you!

Beautiful house and perfect for a large group.

  • 5 of 5

Terceira is a magical island , absolutely amazing. Angra (the capital ) is stunning , like a fairyland. The view from Monte Brasil over Angra and the island is breath taking you can drive or walk to the top . The island really is incredibly friendly and beautiful . We had 3 nights at this gorgeous house and loved every minute of our stay . We have only one negative and that was simply we wished we have stayed longer. The house is very modern , clean , large and basically perfect . Carlos met us at the airport and was very friendly and helpful .

The wifi worked perfectly and there was plenty of heating in the house.

You do need a car if you stay here .

Nice large house close to Angra.

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 people traveling to Terceira and this house accommodated us perfectly. It was very spacious with a lot of amenities including a washer and dryer, fast internet, TV with cable and a very large stocked kitchen. The property is completely fenced in which is nice with kids and there is a very large backyard with a view of the ocean. It's less than a 10-minute drive to Angra and there is also a pizza place across the street.

Our host was easy to communicate with and very helpful, we were greeted with a basket of local foods and wine. Carlos met us at the airport and gave us a very thorough introduction to the house and was available for any of our needs. We had a great stay.

Most activities are nature related - hiking, walking on trails, jeep tours, whale/dolphin watching where kids have great fun, scuba diving and snorkeling tours, swimming/diving off man-made platforms into very clean ocean waters, golf, bird watching, pic-nick areas and children parks here and there are some activities available.

Visit some historical sites such as WWI trenches and the biggest European fortress. The city museum is well organized and represents the local history well.

Popular festivities happen in Carnival (Feb or Mar) and Sanjoaninas (end of June) in Angra do Heroismo and Praia Festival in Praia da Vitoria (August) with concerts, bullfighting (in arenas or bullfighting on a rope), food stalls, theatrical shows, fireworks and sporting events ending with a parade of popular dances. By the end of September Festas da Vinha at Biscoitos celebrate wine and the vineyards.

Angra Rock festival happens in September and Angra Jazz in October.


Enjoy local food specialties, fresh fish and shellfish as well as beef from grass fed cows easily available at the many reasonably priced restaurants.

The best pizza is across the street.
