Enjoy a stunning scenery of a calm village by the Atlantic Ocean, blended with the mountains and the volcanic sand. Restaurants, waterfall, and beach just down the street. Hiking trail entrance at 1 minute from your front door. Out of the city rush but close to everything else, this shall be your base for exploring & relax with the sea music & birds singing at sunrise. The World is changing, try a new pace ;) The space It's an open space between living room, kitchen and circulation areas to balcony and upstairs. The ambience is practical and airy, with some details like raw woods, fresh colors and old furniture freshened up. Open the balcony doors and feel the breeze on the curtains and the sun giving the space a vibrant light. You can also rearrange the living area's central seat pieces ...Enjoy a stunning scenery of a calm village by the Atlantic Ocean, blended with the mountains and the volcanic sand.

You can also rearrange the living area's central seat pieces accordingly to your taste and use of the space. Kitchen is fully equipped (don't forget to taste enjoy a good cup of expresso with the coffee machine!). Enjoy the balcony with its stunning view. After a day at the beach or exploring the island, it's much relaxing to have some local fresh fish (or meat) using the fully equipped barbecue and seizing the sunset with its fresh breeze. When it's a stormy weather the ambience is also quite enjoyable when watching the rain or the rough sea from the balcony. Furthermore, there's a transparent awning in case the wind direction is towards there. New Travel Contexts In this new worldwide context, take the chance to try a new pace. Stay longer to let yourself immerse in the island experience. If working remotely while enjoying the quality of life of discovering the nature in the spare times, we’ll prepare the place in accordance to your most specific needs, such as house layout preference, workspace designed for your specific needs, playground for kids, among many other details which me and my wife take great pleasure on preparing accordingly. For stays longer than 21 nights, other budgets are also available, depending o each context. Please, feel free to ask. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 2912/ALMore

About the neighbourhood
In the old times it was a parish known for its fishermen and farmers. With a great fishery coast, secluded harbor and water mills, farmers from the NorthEast coast used it as a meeting point for exchanging an processing goods using the mills. That's why the name “Moinhos” (translated as “mills”). The Tea plantations – the only 2 in Europe - were a great booster for the predominance of country life as well, back in 1750. Nowadays, this small village of Porto Formoso – Moinhos - is inhabited by natives or people from nearby cities that have chosen to move to a place of privacy and quietness in the nature, centered in the island while out of the city rush but, at the same time, in a short driving distance to everything else.
Getting around
2 restaurants down the sttreet, 5 mins by car to Viewpoint Miradouro de Santa Iria and the Harbor, 10 mins to other Restaurants (2 of the most known for their fresh fish and seafood such as Cantinho do Cais), 7 mins to the 2 unique Tea plantations in all Europe, 12 mins to the tobacco and spices museum at Maia, 20 mins to Lagoa do Fogo view, Lagoa city and Furnas valley, 28-35 mins to Agua D'Alto southern beaches and the islet in Vila Franca. 35 mins to the NorthEast extreme and 55 mins to Sete Cidades lagoons (SouthWest). Ponta Delgada city center is at a 25 minutes driving range, such as the airport.
