The village of Cuada is a paradise within a paradise: the Island of Flores. Situated on the west coast of the Island of Flores, on a small plateau overlooking the mouth of the Ribeira Grande River, municipality of Lajes, the Aldeia da Cuada is one of the most beautiful Azorean sceneries. A place where time stood still and where nature performed its best, leaving it untouched and full of life! At the Aldeia da Cuada only the stone walls and the basalt cottages stand out amongst the verdant fields, where the fresh smell of flowers and fruit trees drift.
The places surrounding the village suggests outings of true expectations and sheer pleasures. Only 2 Km away you will find the seaside town of Fajã Grande, one of the most sought after summer spots on the Island of Flores. Here a deep blue sea invites you to an invigorating swim or simply enjoy the fine cuisine at the local restaurant. To the island's main town Santa Cruz is 20 Km.
At night, in the silence of this small sanctuary, you can almost hear the sound of the sun falling against the horizon... afterwards, everything seems even more serene, but at the same time more intense, fragrant, inexplicably captivating, as if part of a poem.
During the mid sixties most of the residents of the Aldeia da Cuada followed other Azoreans and emigrated to the New World. The Village, where, even today, motorized vehicles never arrived, was almost deserted and its houses abandoned.
The touristic village of the Cuada brings together the old and the modern, having salvaged the original houses and adapted them to today's comfort.
A reception with parking area welcomes the visitor at the village entrance. Equipped with kitchen and bathroom, as well as spacious bedrooms, the 14 cottages make up the touristic village of the Cuada; respecting all of the safety laws of modern accommodation, without losing any of the rural designs of its stone construction.
