About the Hotel
House in Vila Do Porto
At the heart of Santa Maria, just about 2 km from Praia Formosa, “Casa de Almagreira” is a house which has been built as a result of a highly creative process focused on detail. The House provides a highly comfortable environment and is a perfect, functional base-camp to explore the whole of Santa Maria from.
The house has 3 bedrooms (two with a double bed and one with two single beds) allowing in total for 6 adults to be accommodated. There is also a cot for children up to 4 years old and an extra room equipped with a sofa bed to accommodate an extra two adults.
Fully refurbished from the its bare foundations, the House is equipped with all the features needed to be fully operational, including a fully equipped kitchen, bedrooms and shower rooms, as well as clothing care. Most of its furniture has been designed exclusively, including beds, tables, sofas, lamps and linen giving the home a unique feel and a special living experience for all those that stay.
Outdoor areas have wooden teak furniture allowing you to enjoy the sun while reading a book and relaxing in harmony with the the peaceful country surroundings.
There is a large BBQ with a preparation area so as you can take advantage of the beautiful evenings and enjoy a meal outside in nature. All around the house, the gardens displays the multitude of native Island plants bringing colour and variety to your outdoor living experience.
There are kayaks, bicycles and snorkeling gear as well as lead belts for scuba diving which are all available at the house for your use while staying in Santa Maria.
