Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this unique coastal location, Casa das Pedras in Caloura in your own stylish stone cottage (sleeps7).
Set in 10,000 sq. metres of beautiful gardens, vineyards, fresh vegetable fields and an orchard with hens, running free, it’s right next to a sandy beach.
It’s reached via a gated entrance and driveway through the grounds to the property’s private parking area. The house has been fitted out to a very high standard, and within the grounds are the owner’s house (they live abroad and are rarely there) and Casa do Jardim, a lovely 1 bedroom cottage which can be rented together with Casa das Pedras if you have a larger group. The laundry room (washing machine and tumble drier) is shared with Casa do Jardim and is at the entrance to Jardim but guests at Pedras have constant access. Outside there is a lovely terrace area perfect for eating on a warm evening and also a BBQ.
Downstairs, there is a well equipped open-plan kitchen/lounge/diner with electric oven, gas hob, good sized fridge freezer, microwave, coffee machine, kettle, toaster and dishwasher. The lounge area has a comfy sofa and armchair as well as a flat-screen, cable TV, DVD player and also WiFi. There are a few DVDs you can use as well as some board games. A hair drier is supplied. Also downstairs are 2 good size double bedrooms and 2 shower rooms. Up the open wooden stairs is a large double bedroom which leads onto a smaller single bedroom – there are no doors on these rooms.
Casa das Pedras is on São Miguel island just a 5 minute walk from Hotel Caloura with its restaurant and a 15 minute walk to the village of Agua de Pau where there are cafés, bars, restaurants, small supermarkets, bakeries, bank, post office and petrol station among other shops. Also, it is only a 20 minute walk to the fishing port of Caloura with its swimming area and an excellent café & bar, Bar Caloura. See below for more information on São Miguel island.
