THINGS TO NOTE
I live nearby 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 love to share my favorite places in the island, I´ll be happy to give you lots of suggestions!
Ask me about car rentals, I usually have great options.
There are other smaller guest houses located on the property, detached from the big house and on separate grounds.
The parking space of the property, and only the parking space, is shared by all the guests.
A lovely and very independent couple of cats live outside in 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 and I will be there to welcome you.
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:
With a car you are at a 7 minute distance from the Sete Cidades lagoons and the fishing village of Mosteiros were you can take Whale Watching tours; 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 little 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 5-10 minutes away.
