Romantic Country House with sea view

Bedrooms 2
Space 120 m²
Property type chateau / country house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 2 terraces, kitchen and fireplace, garden

The Country House Casa da Laranja was built by the end of the 18th century as a residence and storehouse of the plantation superintendent of an orange plantation. At that time, fresh oranges were brought to England by sail ships.

The garden has access to the surrounding meadows where cows graze occasionally.

From the terraces on the West and East side of the house are both the volcanic mountain ranges of Lagoa das Sete Cidades and Lagoa do Fogo to be seen. You can also see the North coast, the Bay of Ribeira Grande and even the highest mountain Pico da Vara.

In the morning you can have breakfast on the terrace with these wide views and in the evening enjoy the sunsets. All rooms have access to a terrace.

The house has two bedrooms one with a double bed and one with two single beds. A reading room with sofa and desk is also available, not as bedroom however.

The large kitchen with fireplace is equipped with all necessary features and like all the other rooms with a view of the coast line and the sea.

The house has central heating for the winter months, although de temperatures on the subtropical island in the average rarely fall below 11°C.

Due to the relatively central location of the house all the interesting points of the island are easily accessible by car.

Shops and supermarkets are in the Ponta Delgada or Pico da Pedra.

From the house you can go for walks, always with the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean in view.

The proximity to the Batalha Golf Course offers golf enthusiasts a good starting point, without much travel time (3-4 min) to reach the greens with splendid views to the blue ocean background.

The offer for nature lovers such as: swimming, surfing, sailing, horseback riding, whale and dolphin watching, scuba diving, snorkeling, hiking, fishing, swimming in waterfalls, canyoning, etc., are almost limitless. To describe all of this is beyond the scope of this brief introduction. There are good guides on the internet or books to prepare for your visit.

Casa da Laranja offers a comfortable and convenient base for an exciting, relaxing and unforgettable stay on the Azores islands.

This home took my breath away!

  • 5 of 5

As we pulled up the road to our home, I just gasped when I saw it! This old cottage was nothing less than spectacular. The interior was spacious and cozy with ample sitting space for relaxing and the kitchen was very inviting complete with wood hearth for cool evenings. The balcony off the living room and kitchen offered the most beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and ocean. Each bedroom had access to a beautiful balcony and depending on the time of day, we made use of all the outdoor space. Marco was the most gracious host answering all our questions, suggesting activities and was genuinely interested in our well-being. We walked from the cottage to town and in the surrounding fields but were able able to explore all of Sao Miguel from this central location. There was so much to see and do on this island that a return trip, rarely on our "to do list" is definitely in our future.

It is what is says....'Romantic house with sea views'

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house, full of character, all rooms are spacious with beautiful high wooden beam vaulted ceilings. Furniture is simple and tasteful, in keeping with the house. Great shower although bathroom could do with a little makeover, the sink was a little awkward to use due to position of taps but not a problem. We ate in 4 of our 7 nights as it was such a lovely environment to savour. The kitchen is very well equipped although no oven. There is a long terrace either side, one for sunsets (although not fully), the other for terrific sunrises. Beautiful flowers in the gardens, the views very relaxing and far better than we expected. Candles and flowers on the kitchen table very much appreciated, plus the information leaflets in one of the lounges....nice touches. Our greeting was very welcoming and we felt instantly at home. The position is very peaceful, in a quiet lane with just 2 houses the other side. It is an easy 15 minute to drive to Ponta Delegada where there are numerous restaurants and about the same to Ribiera Grande. There is a good beach approx 10 mins on the north coast just before Ribiera Grande called Santa Barbara (white sign) which also has a good restaurant with sea views. If you are travelling on the south coast between Lagoa and Vila Franca there is a fabulous fish restaurant overlooking the sea at Ponta da Caloura. Driving was very easy and there is so much to see, all the lakes, forests, coasts, tea plantation, hot springs and the hydrangeas along the roadsides are a wonderful picture. We had a fabulous week, so many astounding views and a peaceful haven to return to each night, very special. Thoroughly recommend.

Two regrets......firstly not going on a whaling/dolphin trip and secondly not taking up Marcos kind offer of a tour of the pineapple plantation .....another time.

Ruhe, keine Hektik, kein Streß

  • 5 of 5

Es war wunderbar.

Wir haben uns sehr sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus hat unsere Erwartungen voll erfüllt. Gemütlich, heimelig, schön.

Wir wurden von Marco und Sofia freundlich empfangen. Marco hat uns on top auch eine Führung durch eine Ananasplantage gegeben und uns vieles erklärt.

Wir haben uns einfach nur wohl gefühlt und kamen abends nach unseren Ausflügen gerne in das gemütliche Haus zurück.

Wir werden die Azoren, das Haus und Eure Gastfreundschaft gerne weiter empfehlen.

Charming home with stunning panoramic views

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa da Laranja. The home is clean, comfortable and spacious - much larger than expected. The kitchen, living room and sitting room make up the front portion of the house with doors off each room leading to a large stone terrace. A wide center hall w/ linen storage brings you to two large bedrooms and the bathroom. Doors off each bedroom lead to another large stone terrace off the rear of the home. We were fortunate to experience near perfect weather so we took full advantage of both the front and rear terraces. They were ideal for relaxing and enjoying the beautiful ocean views. I think we may have had breakfast outside every day! Golf, beaches, and hiking are all close by and there are several grocery stores within a few minutes drive from the house. Ponta Delgada and the airport are also easily accessible. Marco, the owner, was extremely helpful and attentive. He made arrangements for us to tour the pineapple plantation and even to borrow an iron during our stay. The transaction went smoothly (no need to wire money or pay bank fees) and Marco responded to all of our inquiries quickly. This was our first visit to the Azores and we hope to return again soon. The people are friendly, the food is amazing and the views - gorgeous! Don't hesitate to visit Sao Miguel and Casa da Laranja.

Urlaub vom 02.08 bis 16.08.2015( Familie mit zwei Kindern)

  • 4 of 5

Wir hatten einen tollen Urlaub in der Casa da Laranja. Die Betreuung duch Marco war hervorragend. Vielen Dank für die tolle und sehr informative Besichtigung der Ananasplantage sowie den Marktbesuch in Ponta Delgarda. Das Haus ist sehr schön und zentral gelegen und somit ein toller Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge und Wanderungen auf der Insel. Das Haus entsprach den Beschreibungen. Sofern man Wäsche waschen wollte, so wäre das durch die nette Haushälterin Sofia gegen Entgelt erfolgt. Einen Grill würde der Vermieter auch umghend besorgen. Fur einen perfekten Aufenthalt hätten uns nur ein Backofen, eine Geschirrspülmaschine und schönere Gartenmöbel gefehlt. Dieses war uns aber durch die ausführliche Beschreibung des Hauses bekannt. Rundrum hatten wir zwei sehr schöne Wochen in der Casa da Laranja und würden dieses Hauses jederzeit wieder buchen.

From the villa are beautiful walks on foot to the nearby extinct volcano chains or on the coast.

By car you can reach all the interesting sights relatively quickly.

At the Lagoa das Sete Cidades, a lake in a volcano, you can swimming, hiking and go with the kayak on a voyage of discovery. We highly recommend a picnic on the shore. From there you can also access to the western tip of the island,
