Three bedroom cottage, sleeps 6.
Having returned from California to Pico supposedly for a quieter life for her husband, the energetic owner of this traditional village house took on the organisation of its renovation among others.
Casa das Conteiras is located just outside (2km) the quiet fishing village of Prainha on the North coast of the island overlooking São Jorge. It is fully equipped for self catering (towels and linen are provided) and built from traditional lava stone. It also has a coffee machine, toaster, microwave, fridge, oven, TV, hair dryer, iron, portable heaters and dehumidifiers. There is a supermarket in the village and a pizza restaurant within walking distance of Casa das Conteiras but the location is fairly remote so a hire car is essential.
With lovely views towards São Jorge, this beautifully renovated cottage has a large fully equipped kitchen with open plan living area and a traditional fireplace. Also upstairs is one double bedroom and a bathroom. Downstairs are 2 twin rooms, one with ensuite shower room. A sofa bed is also available meaning you can sleep 2 more children.
Casa das Conteiras is 500 metres from a restaurant, grocery store, ATM machine and the sea and also 20km from Lajes, 24km from the airport and 32km from Madalena on the island of Pico. See below for more information on Pico island.
Casa das Conteiras is located 35 minutes drive from one of the best whale watching companies in the Azores, it is also ideally positioned for a cycling tour round Pico being on the coastal road. In the summer there are also regular ferries to Faial and São Jorge from São Roque which is only 12km away.
