About the property

Small but very nice house, located at Porto da Cruz Village center.

This house has a bedroom with two single beds, a living room with sofa bed, kitchen and a garden with porch.

This is a small but very nice house and is situated at the Village center of Porto da Cruz.

The house is situated in Porto da Cruz village that's one of the parishes belonging to the Machico council.

Its name came from a cross (cruz) that was placed by the explorers on the bay once used as port (porto). Once you arrive you'll probably think there's nothing much to do around here. Life seems to have stopped or only to be moving very slowly in this place. But, the attractions of this small parish are hidden and you'll have to take a closer look to find them. One of them is the old sugar cane factory, which is still operating the same way, as it was when it started with the sugar production in 1927. It boasts a 26 meter tall tower and when it's working you might even see steam coming out! Also not to be missed is the place known as Penha d'Águia, an imposing rock that separates Porto da Cruz from Faial. Getting up there might be a challenge, as the road is very steep, but the songs of the birds will help you on the way up and once you get there you'll be sure it was definitely worth it. The views from Penha d'Águia are absolutely amazing! Porto da Cruz is also famous for its wine. Known as 'vinho seco americano' (dry red wine made of a type of grape called americana), this local product is the theme for a celebration usually happening in September (Festa do Vinho).

Schönes kleines Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt für Ausflüge und Wanderungen ideal. Bushaltestelle und Parkplatz sind direkt vor dem Haus. Die Wohnung war sauber und gemütlich eingerichtet. Handtücher, Geschirrtücher und Bettwäsche zum wechseln waren Vorhanden. Außerdem ist eine schöne Terrasse direkt neben dem Schlafzimmer mit Hängematte Tisch und Liegestühle. Ebenso sind Bügeleisen und Waschmaschine da. Für 2 Personen ist das Haus gut. Backwaren Bars und gute Restaurants sind nur wenige Schritte entfernt. Die Küche war nach unserem Geschmack etwas zu spartanisch eingerichtet. Aber da wir uns nur Frühstück richteten war auch das OK.

Schöne Unterkunft und gute Lage

  • 4 of 5

Das Häuschen hat Charme, ich kann es als Unterkunft für einige Tage nur weiterempfehlen. Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich, sie brachten mir am Sonntag sogar noch frisches Brot vorbei. Schlüsselübergabe funktionierte super.

In der Nacht kann es kühler werden, aber es hat extra eine Möglichkeit elektrisch zu heizen.

Feeling home

  • 5 of 5

We can really recommend this location.We had a very warm welcome by the owners.

The little house was well equipped with everything you need.

Whenever we returned from our numerous Levada hikes

it felt like coming home.

If we came again I am sure I would take exactly this little

house again.

Many thanks to Guadalupe and Ricardo
