About the property

Casa da Burra is a rural house, built in basalt stone in the nineteenth century, the typical architecture of the region. Recently restored, respecting the original design, keeping some walls in basaltic stone and traditional wood oven. Attached to the house there was a small Arribana "House of Burra" that served to save the animals and give agricultural support, it is currently integrated in the house, having been transformed into living room (hence comes the name of the house).

It is set in a small typical Azorean village, in St. Peter, Northeast, São Miguel Azores, near the Serra da Tronqueira and stick Peak.

Far from the hustle and bustle of big cities, the environment of peace and tranquility invites you to rest, where the relationship between humanized landscape and nature, still has a valuable balance. It is the perfect choice for those looking for peace and nature, all combined in one place, with stunning views of the nearby parish of St. Anthony, the sea and the green of the mountains.

Beautiful house in a beautiful location!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay at Casa da Burra! We were greeted at the airport and the owner, his wife and son helped us get a rental car. They were very pleasant and helpful to us. The views are breathtaking and we wish we could have stayed longer then 2 days : )

The best possible choice

  • 5 of 5

We have spent with wife one week in cozy House of Burra. We were both very impressed. We were looking for peaceful authentic secluded place and we were most glad that we found it. House itself offers everything what you could wish for. It is spacious, comfortable, has great views, unique garden and numerous details, where you can see, that owner has spent special care and attention to them.

The hosts, Jose and his son Ricardo are the best hosts ever. Very kind, opened, with a lot of stories and sightseeing hints " to tell. They have also prepared welcome pack, delicious fruits, drinks and bread.

I can say that all holidays on Azores were great, but with this cute accommodation, holidays have became magic.

We hope to come back soon!

preciosa casa

  • 4 of 5

Hemos estado alojados un par de días con nuestros dos hijos. La casa es muy grande y cuenta con todos los servicios y utensilios necesarios. Los niños disfrutaron de la sala de juegos y todos de la barbacoa.

La acogida y atención de José Carlos, superior. Además muy agradecidos de los presentes de bien venida que deja en la casa, con productos típicos de la Isla.

Desde luego muy recomendable.

Une maison authentique

  • 5 of 5

La Casa da Burra est une maison authentique restaurée avec gout et pourvue de toutes les facilités. Située dans un petit village typique du Nordheste, elle permet d'accéder facilement (voiture indispensable) aux promenades, randonnées de même qu'aux "piscines naturelles" et aux plages. L'accueil par les propriétaires est chaleureux et généreux ( nombreuses specialités locales offertes). Nous y avons passé une très bonne semaine et, pour tout cela, nous voudrions remercier chaleuresement nos hôtes. Monique, Daniel et Théo
