About the House: A lovingly restored traditional house, Casa Via d’Água is a self catered accommodation located in the heart of Fajã Grande. The seaside village is located on an area of flat fertile land at the bottom of an imposing volcanic cliff that has been cut through by water flow creating a magical array of waterfalls surrounding the village. The waterfalls glisten in the sunlight and create sprays of water as they meet the Atlantic winds. It is no wonder this area is considered one of the most beautiful in the Azores. Casa Via d’Agua is a rural home, restored so that is keeps its original features and therefore suited to those who are wishing to immerse and stay in coexistence with nature. Each of the 2 bedrooms has a double bed and futon and an ensuite bathroom with bath tub/shower. Rooms have private entrances and double door exits to the garden. The living room has two sofas, TV, DVD player, WiFi and bluetooth speaker system as well as some books and games. The kitchen is well equipped with modern kitchenware, stove, fridge, microwave set around a meticulously restored traditional wood-fire oven, the perfect place to sit and enjoy a glass of local wine.
About Us: Casa Via d’Água was restored by Pierluigi Bragaglia and Luísa Madruga. Pierluigi Bragaglia, has produced an eclectic collection of works sharing a common historical background. “Flores, Azores – Walking through History – A guide to the island’s paths and past”, is the author’s most recent work. Some of Luísa’s contributions to the native autonomous region of the Azores include writing her Master’s thesis on Ecotourism in the Azores, the co-authoring of the successful Candidature of Flores Island as an UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and, most recently, the assessment of Key Biodiversity Areas in Macaronesia (Azores included), acting through the BEST Initiative of the European Union. The house is now owned by George Bevan a director at Conservation Diver, a scientific diving organisation that aims to create the next generation of action orientated marine conservationists. Your host at Casa Via d’Agua will be Veronica.
The Location: Casa Via d'Agua is in Fajã Grande, Europe's westmost village, one of the loveliest settings of all the Azores and simply the best place to stay in Flores. Located on the seashore and at the centre of an outstanding network of footpaths, it is backed by a natural bowl with myriad cascades, tropical foliage and romantic pools. Flores island, a Biosphere Reserve, is an island of incomparable beauty and one of the few unspoiled paradises on Europe. The house is reached by a short footpath, ensuring peace and privacy. It sits in its own garden surrounded by neighbouring fields with wonderful views of the dramatic cliffs. You can see the orange glows of sunset, tumbling mist over the cliffs, wild waves and blistering sunshine all in one day from grounds of the house. This is a rural farming area and so guests should be comfortable with seeing insects and livestock living amongst the village houses. The house is close to the all the local amenities including small shops, restaurants, bars and the sea (port & swimming area). Whilst a guest at Casa Via d’Agua you will have access to all the hikes and activities available through our trusted partners and tour operator
