Villa Natura is a village located in a gated community, shared with the owners living in another dwelling nearby, based on a self-cattering concept. Villa Natura is on the sea front of Praia Formosa, with direct access to the beach. Villa Natura is a ECO project, which is mirrored in the Prize awarding projects "Miosotis Azores" involved in sustainable tourism, and recently was awarded. Our property is entered in the Figueiral-Prainha Nature Reserve, and the trail of Fossils (South Coast rail) runs past this limit. Villa Natura is lined by outdoor with natural cork. The windows are double, with thermal cut-out. We have a wood stove for heating. All electrical equipment is class A or A +, and lamps using LED technology. Water heating is solar. There is also a traditional oven and a aromatic plants garden. We have containers for waste separation and a combustor for the waste. On the property there is a garden, with a privileged place for contemplation of the sea and the surrounding landscape. We have a private access to the beach and the South Coast trail.

In front of Villa Natura, there is a surf spot where it is customary to be practicing all year. With about 1.5 Km the 3 beaches of Praia Formosa are of clear sand . Sometimes in winter they lose almost entirely sand, however there is a location where this resists. In summer the water is around 24° C and in winter the 17º C.
