Terceira, the Purple Island

At its centre, there is the Guilherme Moniz Caldera, a small crater albeit with a perimeter of 15 km (the biggest of the archipelago). To the east, there is an extensive plateau, and the small hills of Serra do Cume. To the west, there is the outline of the hills of Serra de Santa Bárbara that is 1023 metres high and includes lakes, caves and some hidden Mistérios Negros (Black Mysteries), amongst dense flora waiting to be discovered. The purple or lilac colour of Terceira is associated to the hanging bunches of wisterias and lilacs. However, this colour can also be spotted in some of the façades of the buildings of Angra do Heroísmo.


The vestiges of the volcanic activities on the island of Terceira are spectacular and can be easily visited. Algar do Carvão is a volcanic chimney and is overwhelming for its immense space. From its arched roof hang strange and remarkable silica stalactites. The Gruta do Natal, a cave consisting of a lava tube, is a wonder for its extensive, straight, long passages. The walls, ground and ceiling have different colours and shapes, transforming the cave into a mystic place. Outside, there are the Furnas do Enxofre, caves which are today’s witnesses of the formation of the Archipelago. The landscape is filled with fumaroles, surrounded by a red soil contrasting with the green of the moss. The whole atmosphere is warm, with a characteristic smell.


Climbing the hill of Monte Brazil, we are not aware that we are stepping on an old volcano that started in the sea. There are a lot of shrubs, but these are not an impediment to reach the lookout, with fabulous views over the city and the bay of Angra do Heroísmo. It is from the peak that one can grasp the geometry of the island of Terceira, often delineated by the hand of man diving pasture lands by stone walls and fences of hydrangeas. From the woods of Mata da Serreta, Serra do Cume and Pico Alto, we can also enjoy excellent panoramic views of the island.

from James Roche, August 2013
My family and I spent 2 weeks in this beautiful home! By staying at this house our family was able to enjoy the comforts and privacy as if we were in our own home! There was plenty of yard for my kids to run and play!
This house is located in a beautiful peaceful area! You are within walking distance to the ocean, and only a short car ride to Praia or Angra!
The owners of the house made sure everything was perfect and that we were happy, as if we were part of their immidate family!
I highly recommend this home if you are thinking about experiencing this beautiful island!
I hope to visit again in the future and will be booking here again!
Thank you to Frank and his Wife for making our vacation a very memorable experience, not only for my wife and I but, for my kids also!
