We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in the Azores, staying on Sao Miguel and Sao Jorge for a mixture of activities (snorkelling, canyoning, surfing, cycling, walking etc.) and relaxation in amazing surroundings with 3 teenage children. Our time in Santo Christo at Casa dos Tijolos was a real highlight, we stayed for two nights but wish it had been longer.
The cottage is in a perfect location over-looking the sea and close to the prime spot for surfing. It was really peaceful, but still within easy walking distance of the village centre where there is a bar and restaurant. The kitchen etc. was well equipped including BBQ outside, and there is also solar powered electricity and hot water. We ate all our meals on the balcony and in the garden enjoying the beautiful views across the sea and the Fajã. We swam in the sea and the lake, and also hired a board and wetsuit from the Surf School.
Fernando was really helpful. In addition to preparing the cottage perfectly for our stay, he also arranged for our luggage and groceries to be transported by quad bike so that we could enjoy the beautiful walk down to the sea from Serra do Topo and return at the end of our stay via the easier 40 minute trail along the coast to Fajã dos Cubres where we left the car. Thank you for making our visit so memorable and for all your friendly advice and help.
We highly recommend Casa dos Tijolos for the perfect, relaxing stay in an amazing location.
