Enjoy the peace and tranquility of this unique coastal location of Baixa d'Areia in your own delightful, rural, stone-built beach house, "Casa das Pedras" (The "Stone House" sleeps up to 6). It's set in 10,000 sq. metres of beautiful gardens, vineyards, fresh vegetable fields and an orchard with hens, running free, right next to 2 unspoilt beaches – the best in Caloura, the most popular holiday area on Sao Miguel. "Casa das Pedras" is reached via a gated entrance and driveway through the landscaped grounds to the property's off-road, private parking area. It has 2 double bedrooms with 2 shower rooms/toilets on the ground floor as well as a 3rd double leading to a single bedroom, upstairs. This is flexible accommodation for a family group or friends.

A laundry room with a washing machine and tumble dryer is shared with 1 other rented cottage on the "Adega Jubileu" small-holding. The owners, when there (approx. 4 weeks-a-year) in a completely separate property, do not use any of the guest facilities and respect the privacy of their clients.
Outside, there's a illuminated dining area with sea views alongside a large, traditional brick, wood and charcoal-fired BBQ range.

The Azores region
The Azores Archipelago, a 'land of green and blue', is an intriguing, magical mix of volcanic lakes, unspoilt open farmlands and forests in a warm sub-tropical climate, embraced by the Atlantic sea.
Its isolated geographical position, a third of the way between continental Europe and North America, has saved it from the destructive impact of mass tourism.
Legend has it that the Azores are the remnants of the 'Lost Continent of Atlantis'. Whatever the truth of this ancient 'hearsay', the islands are an eco-tourist's paradise with extraordinary landscapes, woodlands full of giant, leafy trees and a patchwork quilt of undulating pastures divided by "hydrangea" flower hedges. In 2008, the National Geographic Traveller magazine rated the islands as 'second best in the world' for sustainable tourism.
Independent, travelling pioneers can enjoy a wonderful, restful and memorable holiday on these dramatically sculptured islands; dolphin and whale-watching, bathing in warm-water rivers and even the sea that's heated by volcanic activity, simply walking through the countryside, horse-riding or fishing the inland lakes. For the more adventurous or those with a love of sports, there's canyoning, mountain-biking, surfing, deep-sea sports fishing, scuba diving, yachting and paragliding among many other activities.
Never blisteringly hot in the spring or summer, the islands are ideal for swimming and sunbathing from April through to November. Never uncomfortably cold in the autumn or winter, they're great for golfing and hiking from November through to March.
There are also a huge range of festivals throughout the year that start with 'Senhor Santo Cristo dos Milagres' around the 5th Sunday after Easter. In fact as a visitor to the Azores, it's difficult to avoid some sort of local 'festa' or street procession, religious or otherwise, throughout the year!
Agua de Pau
Car Hire is recommended but isn't essential. (Contact us for special guest rates) “Casa das Pedras” is just a 5-minute walk to the entrance of the “Hotel Caloura Resort” with its cafes, bars & restaurant and is a 15-minute walk to the local village of Agua de Pau.
The village has cafes, bars, restaurants, several small supermarkets, 'fresh bread' bakeries, greengrocers, butcher, bank, post office and petrol station among other shops.
Also, it is only a 20-minute walk to the small, pretty, working fishing port of Caloura with its colourful, traditional wooden boats, bathing zone and an attractive promenade café & bar, “Bar Caloura” where freshly-caught fish is grilled & served with a choice of fresh salads and desserts at lunch and dinner times.
