THINGS TO NOTE
I live next door so it´s easy to reach you if needed, and I´m always available on my mobile. Nevertheless I respect the privacy of my guests.
I also love to share my favorite places in the island, I´ll be happy to give you lots of suggestions!
There are other guest houses in the same property.
The parking space of the property is shared by all the guests.
A very independent cat lives on the garden :)
CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT
Check-in after 4pm and check-out until noon, although I can be flexible depending on the case. Kindly let me know your planned check-in time.
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 house 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:
With a car you are at a 5-10 minutes distance from the Sete Cidades lagoons and the fishing village of Mosteiros were you can take Whale Watching tours and bath on the darkest sand beach of the island; and at a 5 minute ride from the 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!
At minutes of walking distance you have a small grocery shop (closed at Sundays and Holidays), a coffee shop (open everyday), a church, the bus stop and "Escalvado" viewpoint famous for its beautiful sunsets.
With a car you easily access the supermarket, pharmacy, ATM and restaurants located at 5 minutes away.

Ferraria 5 min. (3,5 km)
