We have found our very own Paradise in the Biosphere Reserve of Graciosa! We decided to renovate and expand an old beautiful farmhouse on this wonderful and peaceful island. The view of the Ocean and on the other 4 islands is breathtaking and very rarely to be found! You will love our garden and the tranquility, just listening to the birds and the waves of the Ocean. Our house is made in a traditional style but you find every comfort you need, at any time of the day and at any time of the year.
Our house has two parts, Casa Velha and Casa Bela Vista.
Casa Velha is built from volcanic stone and has two large bedrooms with overall 3 beds, a sunroom/ glasshouse with a spectacular view of the Ocean, a newly renovated bathroom, a modern and fully equipped spacious kitchen (refrigerator, dishwasher, washing machine, oven, kitchen aid, coffee machine, and toaster). If needed, a stool and/or bed for children can be provided for free.
Graciosa is the island with the best weather of the Azores, for all cases however, there is a cosy wood stove in each of the two parts of the house. In the garden there are several terraces, seating areas, as well as romantic areas.
We always contact our guests and ask for permission, in the case someone else wants to rent the other part of the house at the same time. Because in that case the kitchen would be shared, but still each one has their own fridge and tools. Most people enjoy that.
Our only neighbor is a friendly old german captain.
The nearest supermarket is 7 minutes, the next bathing area is only a 15 min walk away, and the ocean is just 200m away. In the neighbouring village of Carapacho, you can discover the freshly renovated Spa and bathhouse which houses extremely mineral-rich water and a sea water pool.
Hiking trails are also located closely to the house.
Acesso de hóspedes
The apartment is approximately 75 m2 including the wintergarden. Additionally the several terraces, small pond, and garden will be at your disposal.

Während einer 4 wöchigen Reise auf den Azoren 2012 landeten wir am Ende, weg vom Touristenstrom, auf der ausserordentlich schönen Insel Graciosa. Sofort haben wir uns in diese abwechslungsreiche Atlantikinsel verliebt. An der kaum besiedelten Südküste, unweit von Luz, mit Blick auf 4 Inseln fanden wir unseren Traumplatz. Alles hat sich so wundervoll gefügt, dass wir im Sommer 2015, unterstützt von freundlichen Helfern, unser Bauernhaus samt Anbau und Einrichtung fertig stellen konnten.
Wir freuen uns die "Quinta Graciosa" als Ganzes oder nur das Bauernhaus (Casa Velha) an Naturliebhaber vermieten zu können!
Wir haben es genossen unser Haus komfortabel und modern/gemütlich einzurichten. Die Küche ist mit allem Erdenklichen ausgestattet, da wir selber leidenschaftlich gerne kochen.
Der Garten wächst auch schon üppig, denn Milu, unsere Hilfe vor Ort, liebt Pflanzen genau so wie wir.
