The Azores region
2 Natural Wonders of Portugal are in the Azores
This is the only region of Portugal with two nominations out of seven. In 2010, the Sete Cidades lake, on the island of São Miguel and the Volcanic landscape of the Pico Mountain ...
UNESCO's World Heritage
The world's recognition of the incommensurable value of the Azores started years ago. In 1983, UNESCO named as World Heritage the Historical Centre of...
The landscape of São Miguel is marked by two mountain areas separated by a low altitude platform. Nicknamed the Green Island, its landscape is made up of extensive fields and patches of tress that were forced into the valleys of streams and into difficult to reach areas. Cryptomeria stands out on the island's productive forest land and reaches large dimensions in dense woods that are one of the most iconic images of São Miguel. The original flora still survives in small areas, with native and endemic species such as the Azores heather, faya, laurel and holly serving as a shelter for a very special bird, the Azores Bullfinch, and making up a palette of different shades of green spread out along the horizon.
São Miguel is a land of lakes nested in volcanic craters that are many kilometres wide. The most iconic one lies in Sete Cidades. This is a place filled with legends and myths, and it deserves to be seen from the Vista do Rei Lookout; from there, in noble contemplation, one can see two twin lakes, the Green and the Blue, paired together by a bridge.
But the number of lakes does not stop here, since others can be found both in the Serra Devassa and in the central part of the island, including the Canário, Santiago, Éguas and Congro Lakes... There will always certainly be another lake waiting to be discovered.
Casa Grande is located near the lake of the village Sete Cidades, 30 minutes by car from Ponta Delgada and 20 minutes from the airport. The house is set in the grounds of a private property of 920 ha.
Casa Grande can accommodate 9 persons, or up to 10 if the medium-double-bed is used by two persons instead of one (see below floor plans of Casa Grande). The rental value is based on occupancy of 9 persons, but it is the same with 10 guests.
The reception/office of the estate is inside Casa Grande and it is open on weekdays, even with guests in the house (see reception/office and floor plans of Casa Grande).
