Our home is a traditional Azorian home - my father built it in the early 50's. The home and the yard have been kept to reflect family traditions and our respect for the local community and culture.
As our guest, you will be completely immersed in the local culture and share the pristine beauty of the islands from an Azorian perspective.
All household items, (website hidden), dishes and silverware have been in the family for many generations. We do expect our guests to be sensitive that each item is a family treasure. Please make children aware of this and be extremely careful.
Being that we live on an island, we are very sensitive and responsible stewards of our environment. We maintain an eco-friendly home,
