description Description

The village 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 village 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 village 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 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; respecting all of the safety laws of modern accommodation, without losing any of the rural designs of its stone construction.

Lying on the most westerly side of the group of islands Ilha das Flores is 17 kilometers long and 12.5 wide, with a population of 4.500 inhabitants. This charming but rugged island derives its name from the quantity of flowers that grow in abundance due to its high annual rainfall. It was only in the 16th Century that farmers from Europe accepted its climate and started cultivating the thick and luxuriant land. In he capital, Santa Cruz das Flores, there is a small museum devoted to the fishing industry and farming.

Access to this island can only be made by flight but it does have a summer boat connection with the nearby Ilha do Corvo.

Un endroit magnifique !14 cottages rénovés, meublés et décorés avec gout. Tous les détails ont été pensés. On se retrouve dans une petite maison équipée (réchaud, frigo, ustensiles de table, salle de bain avec serviettes...) au milieu de nulle part.
On y accède par des petits chemins pavés de pierres, donc pas de bruits intempestifs de voitures, juste le cri des puffins, et le vent.

Un accueil plus que chaleureux par les propriétaires qui n'hésitent pas à proposer leurs services (transports en minibus sur les sites de ballades, garde de bagages...) et parlent plusieurs langues dont le français et l'anglais.

Ca semble un peu cher au départ, mais on ne le regrette pas. Du pur plaisir pour les yeux, du pur repos, et qui plus est, très romantique !

We recently spent 5 nights at this incredible and unique lodging and fell in love with this amazing place and its people. We were upgraded to a two bedroom, but just paid for a T1. At 80€ per night, this was a great value. After traveling in the Azores now for over 2 weeks, I can verify that these are the softest and most comfortable beds this side of Boston! Although, still not great by US standards, better than most in the Islands.

The cottage was very well equipped and we cooked most of our own meals. The owners and the staff are the very best. We had a rental car and explored just about every road on the island. Cuada is an old town that has been lovingly restored. There are pathways between the parking lot and the cottages that some people may find difficult if they have trouble walking. My husband is an amputee who walks with some difficulty but the wonderful staff carried all of our luggage for us. While my husband had a bit of trouble with the paths, this did not keep him from exploring this amazing little village.

The owners allowed us to use their laundry service free of charge, something we really needed after being on the road for a couple of weeks. They also have free wifi in the reception area, something else we really appreciated. There is also an interesting T6 house that appears that it would accommodate a very large group. There are 14 cottages on the property, along with the owner’s cottage.
