Little Stone House: Best of Town and Country!

Adults-only holiday home in Angra do Heroismo
Rustic, carefully renovated to feature the beautiful, thick stone walls and historic baking oven but supplied with modern conveniences and comfort. Furnished with a number of handsome antique furniture pieces but comfortable and modern couch, mattresses and utilitarian expandable table. Finished with handmade quilts, braided rug, and classic canvas prints from Monet, Vermeer, and Klimt. Located on a side road at the upper edge of the village of Feteira, where traffic includes cows being herded uphill to fields or a team of goats being trained to haul milk cans in a little cart, the house is surrounded by a patchwork of fields on three sides. Panoramic views, going up or downhill from the house, are glorious! Less than a five minute walk from the bus stop and neighborhood café -- one of the best bakeries on the island. Seven kilometers (four miles) from the historic center of Angra do Heroismo, and only slightly more in the opposite direction to Praia da Victoria (the island's other "city"), the house is readily accessible to the island’s amazing natural and historic adventures. Our home is embraced in a traditional, friendly and safe neighborhood.
Guest accommodation at this holiday home offers coffee/tea makers and a hairdryer. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils. Bathrooms include a shower.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on-site or nearby; fees may apply.

5/5 Excellent

Great little getaway for adventurous couples.
It's always so hard to write these types of review because what may be pleasing to one person is not necessarily what another is looking for. So I'll start with who we are so that you can match the property to the personalities of you as a traveler: We are an active not-yet-retired couple with plenty of hiking, backpacking and camping adventures under our belt. We are not Club Med kinda folk. Our vacations consist of seeking out new locations, cultures, arts, and experiences we have not yet encountered. With that said, the stone cottage was perfect. Small enough to be cozy and comfortable, and big enough to enjoy all the amenities - a working kitchen, a laundry, a small but quite serviceable bathroom, parking for a small car, a patio and grill. We had good internet connections to stay in touch back home, and there is a working landline with (basically) free minutes to the US. (Although we didn't use it). The home is situated outside the biggest city, Angra dos Heroismo, so you are well in reach of the city bustle if that's what you like. Above and beyond the cottage is the wealth of information supplied by Peg and Randy that they send you before you go. We rented a car at the airport and drove inland using easily followed direction that they put together, in the midst of not knowing any Portuguese. There are suggestions, maps - including one that they put together themselves - all kinds of tips, like where the local grocery store is, and the property is within a 5 min walk to the local bus route. Routes and schedules are posted on the fridge. They even go to the detail of introducing you to the neighbors (on paper). Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to return. Thank you Peg and Randy! Tom B and Terry C

5/5 Excellent

Country house well located to explore the island
Nice and cozy house in the village of Feteira. The front patio has some steps so you need to be careful with small children but its also a nice place for them to be entertained outside. Well located to explore the island and close to the main town. Well equiped and the host really cares and prepares for your every need. They even managed to get us a baby crib which was wonderful!
