The House North is located in North Place, the parish of Santa Barbara, one of the most beautiful rural areas of the island of Santa Maria and offers stunning views of the sea and mountain views. There, where time seems to have been suspended, predominate tranquility and silence in perfect communion with nature.

Surrounded by an immense and beautiful garden, the North House has a prime location that guarantees its guests full privacy since it is isolated from other houses and from the road.

There are nearby several trails that allow pleasant and invigorating walks, one of which allows access to the bay of San Lorenzo, one of the most beautiful coves of the archipelago, where in summer you can practice various water sports or simply soak in the clear and warm Sea waters and enjoy its magnificent beach.

The North House provides its services guide guests fully customized for walks and tours. All programs are tailor made and pace of each client.

In partnership with some local companies also made it easy other activities such as boating, diving, snorkeling, fishing, canyoning, coastering, mountain biking among others.
