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 do Misterio is located 3km from the quiet fishing village of Praínha 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. All of her houses also have a coffee machine, toaster, microwave, fridge, oven, TV, hair dryer, iron, portable heaters and dehumidifiers. There is a supermarket down in the village but the location is fairly remote so a hire car is essential.
Set in a beautiful peaceful location with birdsong and green fields everywhere, the stone built Casa do Misterio has decades of personality. Upstairs there is a spacious kitchen and dining area, comfortable lounge with sofas and TV, large master bedroom with queen size bed and a bathroom. Downstairs are two twin rooms and a shower room. Outside the house is a large terrace and a lovely BBQ area and also a double garage.
Casa do Misterio is 1100 metres from a restaurant, grocery store, ATM machine and 1500m from the sea and also 20km from Lajes, 20km from the airport and 28km from Madalena on the island of Pico. See below for more information on Pico island.
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 8km away.
