Situated in Algarvia and in the heart of Nordeste municipally, Sao Miguel island, Azores, Casa da Fonte dates from the 18th century. Its architecture is traditional, presenting, however, a linear structure, with the kitchen at one end followed by the rooms with an unusual style for the eastern of Sao Miguel Island. The building restoration and adaptation works began in 2009 with care to maintain its original architecture, preparing it for present day modern comfort.

The interior of this cottage is noted by its height of the roof, the irregular basalt stone walls and the traditional wood oven. The warm colours of the walls and decoration give it a very welcoming environment. The past and present are to be found in the interior where the old restored furniture co- exists harmoniously with modern conveniences. The stone house is prepared to receive people of reduced mobility and consists of one bedroom, a spacious living room, equipped with a wood heater, a modern kitchen and a bathroom. It has also satellite TV, DVD player, HI-FI system, small library and games (chess, draughts and cards) and WI-FI internet access.

This accommodation confronts the blue ocean on one side and on the other the green mountain Pico da Vara, the highest point in Sao Miguel Island. The grounds have a large garden area with some endemic plants, fruit trees, a drive with plane trees and typical flowers such as azaleas, hydrangeas and camellias. There is also a private car park, having an electric gate.

The guests have at their disposal 2 bicycles, a croquet court and a veranda with barbecue.

At their arrival, the guests will find bread and homemade jams, milk, coffee, tea, fruit, water, butter and cheese. In each stone house there are also some basic grocery items.

The Azores region

Like pearls lost in the ocean, the Islands of the Azores are located in the North Atlantic, about 1,500 km west of Lisbon. The archipelago is formed by nine volcanic islands and has a total area of approximately 2,333 km2.

On these islands you will find places of extraordinary tranquillity and beauty, where the blue of the sea and of the hydrangeas and the green of the fields and mountains range in hue from one island to another. The crater lakes have a unique beauty and mystical charm, associated with ancient legends. Their museums, churches and palaces house artistic and historical treasures and their traditions, popular festivities, handicrafts and gastronomy are still very much alive, comprising a five hundred year old heritage.

Sao Pedro De Nordestinho

The Nordeste district, in particular, is the best kept secret on São Miguel Island. Its untouched nature, with a large area of laurel forest, inhabited by the Azores bullfinch, a unique species, and its breathtaking landscapes, with the deep blue sea forming the backdrop, create a refuge par excellence for those in search of a lost paradise.

As a holiday destination, the Azores definitely suit all tastes. Here you will find golf courses surrounded by flowers and lush vegetation, walking trails, where you can observe nature, birds, endemic plants and volcanic phenomena; cetacean and marine life observation; grey sandy beaches inviting you to spend hours of fun in the sea, which is sometimes calm, and where the waves are often ideal for surfing. Tennis, horseback riding, sailing and big-game fishing are among the many activities that you can choose for an unforgettable holiday.
