Come and enjoy moments of relaxation and pleasure in Porto das Manadas where history tells stories, the spirit becomes one with nature and everything turns into a profound feeling of peace and well-being. This fishing port with great historic tradition was built out of the basaltic rock that came from the volcanic eruption. In olden times this port was one of the main points of product for wine of the Casteletes that was produced in this part of the island of São Jorge. Today, this area is best known for the historic church which is one of the best known works of religious art of the Azores, the Church of Santa Barbara of Mandas. GUEST ACCESS Free Wi-Fi Private terrace Barbecue & meals area Microwave Oven Refrigerator/freezer Laundry Self-service - washing & dry machine Private parking in the property Daily cleaning, bed linen change and laundry service are just some of the commodities that we can provide UPON REQUEST Interaction with Guests George, the taxi driver, will be waiting for you for check-in. He will be accessible for any tourism requests you may have. He can give you a brief introduction to the islands and main spots you must not miss! LOCATION: Our house is located around the middle of the southern part of São Jorge Island, Azores. Located only 100 feet from the bay/port, this home offers spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean from almost every room, with the sounds of the sea as your soundtrack. All the conditions for you to enjoy great leisure moments are guaranteed – swimming, snorkeling, fishing, whale & dolphin watching, boating, hiking, and the like are all available steps away. Fishing poles are available in the garage. Fresh bread comes by the house every morning and afternoon. Fresh fish delivered to the house daily upon request. Hiking up to 3,000 feet. Velas, located 15 minutes from our home, features a nice and calm historic center and sea front promenade in addition to live shopping areas, restaurants, & cafes in a casual and typical ambiance. Velas, the main city on the island, is a hotspot for all the main destinations or attractions of S. Jorge island which offers a good variety of activities. There are unique little villages on the water all around the island that hold summer “old customs” festivals in different villages weekly. These islands are innocent and undiscovered by tourists. If you want to go back into time, this is the place. More
