The "Casa da Prainha" is located within Parish of São Caetano, approx. 20 minutes by car, from Madalena (direction Lajes do Pico), on Pico Island, Azores.
The house was built at the beginning of the XX century. The building was all made of basalt stone, however because of the earthquake, at the end of the last century, it was reconstructed with concrete.
The "Casa da Prainha" is located in the street "Rua dos Bagaços" n.º10, in the center of the parish São Caetano, with great sightseeings towards the mountain and sea.
The house can accommodate perfectly 6 people on the first floor. The ground floor is under construction. On the first floor, you can find the 3 bedrooms (2 with a double bed + sofa-bed and 1 with single bed), the kitchen, the bathroom and a small reading area (living room).
The kitchen is well equipped and includes a small dining area.
The patio, behind the house is being prepared, with a large dining table, chairs and a parasol. We are planning to set a barbecue&bar area, where you can cook a meal and enjoy the afternoon and Summer’s evening.
There is a Pastry & Bakery Shop behind the Regional Road (top of the Rua dos Bagaços, crossing the road to the other side). Just behind the Casa da Prainha there is a Coffee shop (5 min. walking with Tv and free Wifi).
The Casa do Povo is only a 3-minute walk away, down the road, where you can enjoy the Bar (with Tv and free Wifi), from 19h to 21h every day.
The Port of São Caetano, also known as "Prainha do Galeão" Bay, is approx. 15 minutes on foot, at the end of road.
There you can take a relaxing sea bath, dive and snorkel, otherwise, If you prefer, you can take a 40 min. walk along the lighthouse road until the parish of São Mateus, in order to appreciate the natural beauty of the vineyard culture landscape (UNESCO World Heritage since 2004), and of course, also the traditional cellars called "adegas".
There are also several walking trails along the parish to the Forest Park and foothills of the Pico mountain, with varying degrees of difficulty and distances.
At this time, only the first floor is available for guests to use. If you need to park the car, there are several spaces along the street.
Interakcija s gostima
I don´t live on Pico Island all year round, so if I´m not there, the Casa da Prainha, is being taken care by a cousin, who deals with the keys. However, I´m always reachable by e-mail or cell in order to provide the guests the best assistance they need.
The backyard is under construction. Please try to avoid walking on that area. You may find loose stones and vegetation on the ground.
Please note: There is also One (1) Single Bedroom: 25€/night but the reservation has to be made on the other listing of the Casa da Prainha (search for 1 guest).
