Where you’ll be

Porto Formoso, Açores, Portugal

The Handmade House is located in the historic center of Porto Formoso, a few steps from the colonial-style church and the most picturesque and flowery port of the island. ​Having been built between Lagoa do Fogo and Furnas, Porto Formoso proves to be the perfect place to stay to explore them, being 20 minutes from Lagoa do Fogo and 10 from Furnas.

This village stands on a cliff overlooking the a protected marine zone, behind which rises a beautiful evergreen mountainous valley where the only organic tea plantation in Europe is grown: Porto Formoso Tea Plantation. It is a fishermen's village that lies on the promontory of Punta Formosa, in whose coves nestles the most picturesque harbour of the island, as well as one of its most suggestive and beautiful beaches, Praia dos Moinhos.
