Fonte do Rego are two traditional cottages which have recently been renovated to a very high standard by Les, an Englishman who first arrived in the Azores in 1987, and his Californian/Azorean wife Isabel.
Situated just a short drive from the airport and less than 10 minutes drive from the main town of Horta, these beautiful stone cottages have solid chestnut kitchen units, elm staircases and careful attention has been given to traditional stonework. Fonte do Rego offers peaceful and relaxing accommodation with views over the south coast of Faial towards Pico.
There are two detached houses each with their own private parking, private patio and barbecue area; both have two bedrooms. The bedrooms of the ‘Upper House’ can either be twins or doubles with one bedroom being a spacious 19m2. The master bedroom is downstairs and the smaller bedroom upstairs with the bathroom (bath and shower head), laundry room, kitchen and lounge area.
The ‘Studio’ of Fonte do Rego has a shower room and two bedrooms downstairs and a kitchen and spacious lounge upstairs with the lounge opening onto the patio with views of Pico. The patio has a lovely roof over it now which can be seen in one of the photos above. Both kitchens are well equipped with microwaves, electric ovens and fridge/freezers and each lounge has a TV, DVD player and MP3 stereo.
Located just inland from the airport, around 10 minutes drive from Horta and 25 minutes from the site of the latest eruption at Capelinhos, Fonte do Rego is in a peaceful but convenient setting on the island of Faial. See below for more information on Faial island.
