Description

Casa das Almas is a rehabilitation of an islands' typical rural house. Please, allow us to invite you for a tour.

Shall we begin by the ground-floor, where there is a double room, a cosy living-room and a winter garden -with a peaceful view over the nature outside. At the first floor, you may find another double-room and a single one, a fully equipped kitchen, a comfortable living room and a bathroom.

And there's more on the outside: a beautiful glass shed and a backyard flat contiguous to a garage. The flat includes a kitchen, a small resting area and dining room, and a bathroom. The garage easily accommodates 2 cars. There's also plenty of space to park 2 or 3 cars more in front of the house.

The glass shed stands right next to a handy ready-to-use barbecue, offering you at the same time a place to have a pleasant meal and a chance to experience a sense of belonging to pure nature.

And now, the best we could ever offer you for your house vacation:

The house is surrounded by natural woods, which embrace trees like Eucalyptus, Japanese cedars, Picconia azorica (locally known as White wood), Laurel trees (Laurus azorica), and Erica azorica – being these last 3 endemic species.

Within the houses' area, you may delight yourself with an amazing garden and orchard having different breeds of trees and flowers, such as: orange trees, a lemon tree, banana trees, yams, palm trees, rosebushes, hibiscus, aloe vera, hydrangeas, and pine trees; among others.

All of this to welcome you at the Azores in the best possible way!

The Azores region

ABOUT SANTA MARIA ISLAND

The Municipality of Vila do Porto has its seat in the town of the same name and it includes five parishes: Vila do Porto itself, Almagreira, Santo Espírito, Santa Bárbara and São Pedro. According to the data gathered in the last population census (2011), the municipality records a total of 5,547 inhabitants, distributed as follows:

The county of Vila do Porto offers a varied landscape, from a rather hilly area comprising the parishes of Santa Bárbara and Santo Espírito, to a much flatter one where the parishes of São Pedro, Almagreira and Vila do Porto itself are located.

Pico Alto constitutes its highest elevation, at 591 m. Vila do Porto is the only municipality in the Azores whose soils include formations of sedimentary origin, where a considerable variety of fossils of molluscs and other species can be found.

We definitely recommend our visitors to experience the richness of the local gastronomy, full of unique flavours mastered during centuries.
Highlights are the “Sopas do Espírito Santo” (meat and bread soup), “Caldo de Nabos” (turnip broth with pork), “Bolo da Panela” (pork broth with flour cakes), “Caçoila” (stewed marinated beef), “Polvo Guisado em Vinho de Cheiro” (wine-stewed octopus) or the celebrated “Molhos” (large rice and pork sausages, sliced).
The climate is temperate maritime and known for being the driest and mildest of all the Azores. With short thermal amplitudes, average annual temperatures range between 12°C (54°F) in winter and 25°C (77°F) in summer.

Santa Maria

Casa das Almas is located in “Lugar das Almas”, and is about 3 km from the centre of the parish of Santo Espírito where you can find:
- 1 museum.
- A picturesque baroque church.
- 1 restaurant, 3 coffee-shops and one grocery store.
- Beginning right next to the house, a walking trail goes all the way untill the bathing area of Maia.

Casa das Almas is 14 km away from Vila do Porto, the main village of the island of Santa Maria, with banks, post office, restaurants, coffee-shops, library, stores, pharmacies and hospital. And 17 km far from the airport and the port of Vila do Porto, where you can find the marina, the nautical club and several diving and adventure companies.
