About our home

Our cottage is on the West Coast of the Island of Flores, in the Azores, in the tiny village of Fajãzinha.
The cottage enjoys a spectacular view of both the Atlantic Ocean, pastures and hills surrounding its location.
The Island of Flores is a Unesco's Biosphere Reserve and best described by the following excerpt, taken from Bradtguides:
« Although it is a long way from anywhere, Flores is an island of quite spectacular natural beauty and well worth the effort to reach. July and August are the peak times, June and September are busy, then tourism fades away. Come in winter, see no other tourists, enjoy sharp lighting, cloud effects, rainbows, storms, brilliant sunshine, wonderful conditions for photography – for in winter there is tremendous clarity – and simply escape from the madding crowds. Today, however, all too often the tourist is in a hurry to see everything and move on. Having invested travel time and fares to reach Flores, do stay at least three nights, even if you are not a walker; if you are, then think of five nights. If you want to visit nearby Corvo, you should allow an extra day. Ideally, you would spend a whole week. In winter, be tempted to rent an old restored comfortable cottage with wood-burning stove, bring books and CDs, and retreat for a month or three. »
