Traveling with Children

Adoramos a estadia na casa da Rita e do Simão! A localização é fantástica, numa zona rural, muito próximo de Angra do Heroísmo, com uma vista fantástica sobre o Atlântico. A casa tem uma decoração acolhedora e possui todas as comodidades necessárias. Fomos muito bem recebidos e sentimos que estávamos em casa. Obrigado! Diogo, Abigail e Lucas

Diogo - 2017 Out

A casa Ver o Mar revelou-se uma maravilhosa surpresa, um misto entre casa de bonecas e um ninho aconchegante para passar um natal cheio de amor familiar. Recomendamos a todos ficarem aqui e descobrirem este deslumbrante tesouro, entre o sossego dos pastos, e uma belíssima vista para o mar.

 A melhor casa de férias onde alguma vez estive. Os pormenores são deliciosos. A Rita e o Simão são igualmente fantásticos.

Si l’endroit n’est pas facile à trouver, rita et Simao nous ont fait profiter de leur bel accueil. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié les petites attention (de quoi faire un petit dej par exemple) et les belles recommandations de resto ou de coins de baignades les plus proches. La maison est cosy, bien décorée, pratique et très agréable. Bref une excellente adresse et nous aurions adoré y rester plus longtemps. La prochaine fois sûrement !

Rita und Simão haben uns herzlich empfangen. Das Cottage war wie beschrieben schön ausgestattet, sehr sauber und hatte einen wunderbaren Blick auf das Meer. Wir kamen erst spät abends an. Rita und Simão haben auf uns gewartet und uns etwas zum Frühstück bereitgestellt. Sie gaben uns wertvolle Tipps für Aktivitäten und Sehenswertem, denen wir gefolgt sind. Es war ein sehr schöner Aufenthalt auf Terceira. Vielen Dank!

Maravillosa casa típica azoriana con una preciosa reforma, tranquila y con todas las comodidades que se puedan necesitar, tanto Rita como Simão siempre atentos conmigo, sin duda regresaría a este alojamiento! Besos a los dos!

Rita and Simão are dedicated hosts, always available to make your stay in their house the best possible. The house is located in the countryside. The environment is very relaxing with cows, rosters, cats,... surrounding the house. A little haven of peace. All of that make this place fit whether for a couple, whether for a family.

Rita est vraiment très sympa ! Contact facile, plein de bons conseils. La maison est parfaite et très bien équipée. On se croirait chez soi. Merci encore Rita pour ton accueil

Que casa maravilhosa!!
Encontra-se a 10 minutos de carro do centro e a 5 minutos do mar. Ambiente muito tranquilo.
A casa estava muito limpa e tinha tudo o que era preciso para uma estadia perfeita. Á chegada o anfitrião recebeu-nos muito bem. Deu-nos indicações e recomendações de sítios a visitar, restaurantes, trilhos,...
É possível estacionar o carro em frente da casa.
Esta casa é ponto obrigatório de estadia na ilha Terceira.

A Rita e o Simão foram uns verdadeiros anfitriões! Sempre acessiveis às nossas necessidades, prontos a contribuir para que tudo corresse super bem!
A casa é linda, um verdadeiro refúgio ideal para uma boa conversa no quentinho da lareira!
A minha melhor experiência!

Los anfitriones fueron muy atentos. El entorno de la casa es precioso, a nosotros nos encantó vivir a las afueras pero si no te gusta el campo o los insectos puedes encontrarte a disgusto. La casa es muy cómoda y está bien equipada.

Environnement très agréable et vue sur l’océan et le mont Brésil

Maison lumineuse et très bien équipée. La petite terrasse à l’arrière avec le barbecue est parfaite pour les repas. Tranquillité assurée avec la campagne environnante.

Belina, Julho2022

Een pareltje op Terceira. Een top verblijf. Enkel lovende woorden over ons verblijf. - Geweldige hosts: behulpzaam en super vriendelijk. Ze gaven ons goede tips en adresjes. Super behulpzaam en steeds bereid om te helpen/ iets op te zoeken. - Prachtig mooi blauw huis. Een pareltje van binnen en van buiten. Prachtig en met zorg ingericht. Straalt rust uit. Zalig om s'morgens naast het huis te zitten in de schaduw en s'avonds op het dakterras te chillen. - Prachtige mooie en ruime badkamer met goede douche, goed uitgeruste keuken, mooie lichte slaapkamers met zalig goede bedden en dekens. - Prachtige omgeving. Rustig gelegen, vlakbij fijne zwemplekjes en de prachtige UNESCO erfgoed stad. - Prachtig eiland! We houden van de Azoren en van Terceira. We komen hier graag terug!

Lotte, Agosto 2023

We had an exemplary stay here and I couldn't say enough about how kind and responsive the host, Rita, was throughout our stay. She communicated early with superb recommendations and I highly suggest you take her restaurant tips -- they served us extremely well. She also had stocked the home perfectly with water and other necessities. The home was as advertised and extremely comfortable for a family of 4 (2 young kids). You can see Monte Brasil from the front porch but are still far enough away from Angra that you can achieve some peace and quiet. The view from the ocean on the porch is sublime. Highly recommend!

Algar do Carvão

Mistérios Negros

Terceira Island

Terceira is one of the nine islands of the Azores, part of the so-called "Central Group". Originally called the Island of Nosso Senhor Jesus Cristo das Terceiras, it was once the administrative centre of the Terceiras Islands, as the Azores archipelago was called.

Suggested itinerary

Cidade Património Mundial da Unesco Angra do Heroísmo - Memória

A World Heritage City, it was a mandatory stopover for the African and Indian fleets in the 15th and 16th centuries. It offers an exciting journey through the streets, the monuments and the walls built by the Spaniards on Monte Brasil. In Alto da Memória, at the top of the Jardim Duque da Terceira, you can see the Outeiro da Memória. It was built in homage to Pedro IV of Portugal’s visit to Terceira, and has a panoramic view of the city.

Viveiros da Falca

The Falca forest nurseries are a production site for the Japanese red cedar. This tree is part of the island's landscape and is commonly used to protect the pastures from the wind. The forest has areas for outdoor activities and offers tranquillity and close contact with nature. Not a very touristic area, is often used by locals for picnics and walks. You can complete a walking trail near the stream or walk along the road that surrounds the park and has a view to the ocean and the patchwork of fields on the island. The surroundings of nature with the tranquility of the countryside make this short walk unforgettable.

Miradouro da Serra de Santa Bárbara

In the middle of the nature reserve, you can appreciate a large part of the Terceira Natural Park, as well as the pristine natural landscape of the cloud forest of the Azores, one of the rarest and most valuable plant formations, dominated by the endemic Azorean dome cedar (Juniperus Brevifolia). This natural reserve occupies 1863.40 ha of the Santa Bárbara mountain range and includes the island's highest point, situated at an altitude of 1021 m. You can also see a large part of the island, as well as other islands of the central group.

Monte brasil

The Monte Brasil nature reserve had its origin in an ancient extinct volcano with origin in the sea and that later joined the island. The Castle of S. João Baptista was built here and used as a fortress. It was also part of the network of coastal lookouts for whale hunting. Nowadays, it has viewpoints with panoramic views over the ocean, which are also used for cetacean watching. Monte Brasil is now a perfect area for short walks in the nature with viewpoints overlooking the city and the sea. It has an approved circular walking trail lasting approximately three hours. It has very pleasant picnic areas and children's playgrounds. It is possible to observe deers walking freely and sometimes approaching humans with curiosity.

Impérios Espirito Santo

The Impérios do Divino Espírito Santo are an important feature of the Island. Its buildings have a typical architecture, with variations in the different parishes and islands. The existence of the Brotherhood of Espírito Santo (Holy Spirit) in the Azores was widespread in the 16th century. [Photos: Luís Dias]

Furnas de Enxofre

A place not to be missed. It has a circular route where it is possible to observe the volcanic phenomenon of the fumaroles. The surrounding nature amplifies the experience. The circuit through the fumaroles and the north slope area was adapted to the existing paths and complemented with easy access. Along the route there is a set of information panels that support the interpretation of the natural elements present.

Miradouro da Serra do Cume

This is the most famous viewpoint of the island, where it is possible to see the impressive patchwork quilt of fields so typical of the Azores. The immensity of the green pastures divided by stone walls, the cows grazing and the sea in the background make this place a must-see. [Photo: Filipe Bem]

Algar do Carvão

An unforgettable visit to the interior of a volcano. Algar do Carvão is the result of volcanic eruptions. The basaltic lava that escaped formed the current chimney, the magma that descended into the ducts and the magma chamber originated the Algar. You can walk around inside it and you can observe and experience the volcanic environment.

Cidade Património Mundial da Unesco Angra do Heroísmo - Basilio Simões

A century-old grocery store that has maintained the same characteristics since it was founded in 1860. Visiting this place is like travelling back in time, you can smell the spices and buy various products in bulk.

Lagoa das Patas

Lagoa das Patas is a small lagoon surrounded by cryptomeria forests. A wide variety of endemic flora can be observed in the stream.

It is a very pleasant area for short walks and picnics. It also has a small children's playground [Photo: Antero Ávila]

Farol das Contendas

The Farol das Contendas (lighthouse), built at an altitude of 54 metres, was established in 1934 and is 13 metres high. It was equipped with a lenticular, catadioptric revolving device of 3rd order, the light source being incandescence by petroleum vapour, the reserve being a five-turret constant level lamp. Currently this lighthouse is automated with the DF model system. It can be visited on Wednesdays [Photo: Filipe Bem]

Biscoitos e as suas piscinas naturais e Museu do Vinho

Parish with typical bathing sites, with access to natural swimming pools and direct entrance to the sea, marked by the black rocks resulting from volcanic eruptions. You can observe and visit, through walking trails, the whole protected area of the vineyards. There is a children's playground near the main bathing site and it is possible to buy regional products (food and handicraft) in the stalls next to the entrance. It is also possible to visit the wine museum, to understand a little bit better the history of the local vineyards and, at the end, taste and/or buy the various wine products that the Brum family has to offer. Biscoitos is, in our opinion, a must-see.

Cidade Património Mundial da Unesco Angra do Heroísmo - Jardim de Angra

This garden, known for its beauty, features a wide variety of plant specimens. It provides a pleasant stroll. Stop at the vegetarian café/restaurant for a meal or simply drink a cup of organic coffee and enjoy the sounds of nature. Inside the garden, there is a climb to Alto da Memória, where you will have a panoramic view over Angra do Heroísmo. [photo: Antero Ávila]

Gruta do Natal

Visit the Gruta do Natal and have an adventure equipped with an helmet and a torch! Located in the Altares parish, it is a very extensive geological formation, resulting from the formation of a lava tube in the interior of the Island, comprised in the Natural Forest Reserve of Serra de Santa Bárbara and Mistérios Negros.
