This very private, cosy stone cottage located just above what is virtually a private beach for the few neighbouring properties, was beautifully converted from an old fisherman’s cottage that is believed to be the first dwelling on this fajã (a flat strip of land at the foot of a cliff).

The whole cottage is open plan. The comfortable sitting area is a veritable balcony over the beach and sea and is separated from the bedroom area by two doors that open the full width of the cottage, allowing you to wake up to that breath-taking view. Further back is the modern shower room and the fully equipped kitchen that still features the original bread oven.

Outside is a very private yard with overflowing bougainvillea, which features an outdoor dining table and a couple of sunbeds under a private curtained canopy, and again benefits from that spectacular sea-view.

A lovely little beach hut is located right on the rocky beach 30 metres below, and shared by the three Villas do Mar.
Access is via a pathway with steps that leads from the level of the Villas do Mar down to the beach. A front terrace with sunbeds, outdoor shower and built-in barbecue and large table (seating for 16), is complemented with a kitchen (fridge, 4-ring hob) and toilet.
