Delicious picnics can be provided for lunch and every evening local chefs produce a 3 course meal served in the sociable lounge with its large dining table. Luckily, there are walking and riding trails straight from the Lodge so you’ll be able to work off any excess!
Situated in the rural village of Cedros on the north coast of Faial island, Patio Lodge is 30 minutes drive from Horta and the airport. See below for more information on Faial island.
Nowhere is too far away on Faial and there is some excellent walking and horse riding nearby, but most other activities start and finish in Horta, so we recommend hiring a car if you are planning on exploring on your own.
