River Cottage - beautiful, peaceful location

Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Cedros, Faial Island, Azores
This beautifully renovated stone cottage sleeps four in two bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom. Hidden amid rolling green countryside with views of the sea and neighbouring islands, birdsong fills the garden and the rest of the world seems far away.

Interaction with guests
This is a self-contained cottage with private access and its own garden. Guests can come and go as they please and do not share the space with hosts. However, hosts, or a friend, will meet guests to give them the keys and show them the cottage and will be available (either in person or by telephone) to answer questions during your stay. We are keen to share the beauty and interest of the Azores with our guests and would be happy to suggest things to do or assist with booking activities eg whale watching

The river cottage is a very well appointed cottage. We very much appreciated the nice showers as we were a bit unfortunate with the weather. It has lovely views and also has great facilities such as an outdoor shower and a hose for rinsing wetsuits....More

About the neighbourhood
An easy 12 minute walk through the fields to reach the sea and a local swimming hole with good snorkelling around the rocks.
3 restaurants (and excellent take away pizzeria) within a few minutes drive, plus many more in Horta.
Great walks locally and elsewhere on the island.
The Azores are famous for their whale watching - not to be missed.
Climbing Pico - Portugal's highest mountain - is a fantastic day trip for the adventurous.
Getting around
A rental car is recommended in this location. However, there is a bus stop nearby with 2 - 3 busses a day (Mon-Fri only) to/from Horta and taxis on the island are reasonable (eg 20 - 25 euros from Horta, or the airport, to the cottage)
