Sleeping 6 with three double bedrooms, Casa Velha is the oldest house in the seaside village of Porto Martins (pop. 1000) on Terceira, probably the most picturesque island in the Azores. It has natural pools for swimming beside the sea, which is five minutes' walk away, and is located ten minutes' drive from the airport; the island's largest town of Praia-da-Vitória is even closer. It is a wonderful place to charge your batteries and to get to know the picturesque countryside with its friendly.

The space

It comprises a living-room, three twin bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a utility room. The furniture is mainly made from old local timber; the aim has been to keep the house so far as possible as it was built, so modernisation was kept to the essential. .There is a patio with barbecue which is delightful for alfresco meals, followed perhaps by a stroll around the orchard and vinyards.

Interaction with guests

We will be there to give the keys and all information about, local traditional events, shopping restaurants etc.

Other things to note

The house is normally available from 3pm on the day of arrival until 11am on the leaving date but in case of need we can be flexible over this.

Beautiful place, wonderful location. Porto Martins a special place. Great swimming, good walking, nice restaurant. House is extremely well equipped and feels really homely. Kitchen, bedrooms etc all fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, even snorkelling gear in the lock-up. We had to cover the picture of "Creepy Joe" on the living room wall, but apart from that, everything was absolutely lovely. Anyone thinking of visiting Terceira for a first time, this is definitely a house and a village to choose.

Casa Velha is an absolutely charming traditional home offering guests elegant comfort in the tranquil surrounds of a lush, semi-wild garden with grand old trees to shade one on a lovely stone terrace. A great spot for breakfast and lunch to enjoy the distant sea views. Follow a garden path to a smaller, elevated patio for even prettier sea vistas and perfect for star gazing at night! The spacious main bedroom is delightful and has its own generous bathroom and an attractive garden outlook from the main window. The home's interior is stylish with some engaging historical touches such as the wonderful old photographs of past lives. Porto Martins is ideally situated to access with ease all the pleasures the island has to offer. Thank you to Carlos and his wife for welcoming me warmly and settling me in comfortably. The wine and chocolates were appreciated!
