Casas d’Arramada is a collection of traditional-style Azorean cottages on the rural north coast of Faial.

The original buildings date back to the early 19th century, when the Ribeira Funda region was a remote community of subsistence farmers. Agricultural is still a major part of the island’s economy, but the modern-day Faialense have also worked hard to create a sustainable balance between traditional farming and rural tourism.

These six spacious cottages were extensively renovated in 2005 into the one, two and three-bedroom casas you see today, and the décor is modern and modest, retaining much of the original character of the buildings. The surrounding grounds are a pleasant maze of paths, hedgses and terraced flower beds, with the ever-present, peaceful countryside of Ribeira Funda as a backdrop.

All six houses have comfortable bedrooms, well-equipped kitchen/diners and bathroom with showers – there’s also a heated indoor pool and games room, with a small adjoining bar in the reception building. Breakfast is included, and there’s something particularly lovely about waking up to find a basket of fresh bread, cheese, milk and jam on your doorstep each morning.
