Unwind at Villas do Mar on Flores’ wonderful west coast.

Flores has always been popular for the breath-taking beauty of it’s island landscape – nowhere more so than the west coast village of Faja Grande. This last outpost of Europe, bordered by Flores’ famous seacliffs and waterfalls on one side and the wild Atlantic on the other, is a true off-grid escape from the trappings of 20th Century life.

Self-catering accommodation is often at a premium in Faja Grande, and the new Villas do Mar apartments offer a modern alternative to the classic Azorean architecture of Aldeia da Cuada. These spacious apartments have an open plan living area with a seaview (or partial seaview) balcony, a well-equipped kitchen, a double bedroom and a second twin bedroom.

In the daytime, it’s a short walk inland to Poco da Ribeira do Ferreiro – a magical lagoon where the Lagoa dos Patos falls in multiple waterfalls, and in the evenings you’ll have the ocean-front Maresia Restaurante close by – where owner Jorge serves some of the best Azorean cuisine on the island. Including a hire car during your stay will allow you to explore the wonders of Flores at your leisure.
