About the property

In a rural location, overlooking the mountain and the sea, this renovated house, once owned by the owner's grandparents, maintains the original characteristics in a cozy, sunny and relaxing environment.

The house has two floors. In the first the cozy living room with TV and fireplace, dining room, well equipped kitchen and bathroom. On the upper floor two bedrooms with double bed, a hall with sofa bed and bathroom with shower and bath.

Outside there is private parking for 2 cars, a pergola to enjoy a good wine, a huge rustic barbecue and a wonderful garden with a magnificent view of the green mountain and the Atlantic Ocean.

It is ideally located to visit the whole island, with easy access to the north and its fabulous landscapes through the Ribeira Brava. Porto Moniz and its natural pools located to the east are only 35 minutes away by car.

The house is located 10 minutes from the beach and marina, where you can practice spearfishing and whale and dolphin watching, 5 minutes to Levada Nova (walking walk in the forest).

Wunderschönes Haus mit einer atemberaubenden Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist mit so viel Liebe eingerichtet, so dass man sich nur wohlfühlen kann. Die Terrasse mit der Hängematte und dem Ausblick ist wunderbar. Alles in allem - empfehlenswert! :-)

Man sollte aber wissen, dass ein Mietwagen notwendig ist.
