Villa Várzea is a centenary property located on a very picturesque village of São Miguel island. The Villa is just one minute off the main road that circles all the island. From here you are at a ten minute drive from all of the natural attractions of Sete Cidades; Mosteiros sunsets and beach life; and a walk away from Ferraria natural thermal pool. Here our guests find themselves brought back in time, engaged with nature, woken up by bird chants and immersed in the genuine Azorean spirit.

The space
The villa is composed by the Grand House where you find this Garden Nest, and the old horse stable remodeled into our Nomad Nest, Hiker Nest and Design Nest (if you are looking for accommodation with full kitchen check them out!)

When you arrive you can park in our private parking and the signs will direct you to your Nest. You can self check-in anytime after 4PM, no worries about arriving late hours. Check-out is until 11AM.

Where you’ll be

Varzea, Azores, Portugal

Várzea is a little village barely touched by the modern life pace. It is located right off the main road that circles the island, making it really easy to access it. Surrounding the Villa you will find the typical landscapes of the western part of the island: green mountains, old wind mills, cows passing by and local people on their daily routines.

This western part of the island is truly special and famous for many reasons:
From here you are at a 10 minute drive from the breathtaking Sete Cidades lagoons; and the lovely fishing village of Mosteiros were you can take Whale Watching tours and view the most incredible sunsets; and at a 5 minute ride you are in the very special thermal pool of Ferraria. Renting a car/scooter is the easiest way to get to all of these wonders. If you can´t rent a car/scooter there is a bus stop on the village with daily buses to Sete Cidades, Mosteiros and Ponta Delgada. Just keep in mind public buses don´t run very often and they don´t take you to most viewpoints and hiking trails. Some of my guests that love hiking don´t mind getting to these places on foot. I always suggest them to bring the right mindset for the unpredictable weather on the island, it´s a big part of the Azorean mystic!
