HAVE YOU EVER WISHED TO BE TRANSPORTED INTO AN ENCHANTING HOUSE OF BUTTERFLIES, BEAUTY AND MAGICAL NATURE?? The gorgeous island of Santa Maria located in the Azores, Portugal will transform you into the blissful soul on a summer day you've been dreaming of all winter. Located high in the valley looking down into a green heaven dotted with lovely painted cottages and carmel colored cows , Casa de Roca de Cima glows with enchanted loveliness and surrounds one with loads of comfort and peaceful grace. Perfect for one person or a family of 8 , the house has more charm than one can even dream of . Every morning the sun woke me to a swath of colors and a blanket of beauty as I nestled in the outdoor hammock amongst chirping birds , clean air and quietness, and watched the sunrise peek through pink clouds , spreading its glory, calling me to make breakfast and head to the beautiful beaches . The kitchen , picture perfect and loaded with everything one needs to cook any size meal worked out great and a call to a sweet and funny taxi driver did the trick as I then made my way thru winding roads , quirky trees and adorable farms along the way to Praia Formosa or Sao Lorenco . Laurinda , the fab manager of this home picked me up at the airport and was my guiding angel every day; her suggestions for the concerts I attended, restaurants and the exciting, fun jeep tour she helped me book were so appreciated; she was a pro my entire stay and made me feel very comfortable as I was also traveling on my own. The outdoor shower and grill beckoned me back , and when I didn't go out at night I watched a few movies on TV , read and ate amazing home grown tomatoes , watermelon and famous Azores cheeses and cookies...yum!! I went to bed in the comfy bed with colorful swirls of butterflies and flowers and dreamt of my trip back here next summer, but with plans to stay longer so I can enjoy more yoga classes with Mandy Brinkley , explore more private beaches and trails, and relish in even more beauty that the lovely Santa Maria Island has to offer... Sweet Dreams !!

Gostamos imenso da nossa estadia! A casa está um pouco isolada, mas muito bem arranjada e com tudo o necessario para umas ferias excelentes no campo e mar! A Laurinda está sempre disponivel e é extremamente afavel! Obrigada!

Response from Laurinda:
Obrigada Lucilia! Foi um prazer recebe-la e à sua familia em Santa Maria. Quanto ao "isolamento" da casa, sim, esta fica numa zona rural que se caracteriza precisamente pela dispersão/afastamento das habitações em contraste com os núcleos urbanos. Tal permite paz e tranquilidade e é aliás uma das coisas que os nossos hóspedes normalmente mais apreciam ;) de resto a ilha é pequena e a curta distância de carro se chega a todo o lado. (Saliento que essa informação está referida na descrição da casa). Cumprimentos a toda a família e são sempre bem vindos!

I just love to travel, to meet new people and receive guests at my house. Casa do Norte is a special house for special people. Also Santa Maria is a different island, a kind of lost paradise in the middle of the atlantic ocean. Come and see for yourselves. I'll be here waiting to help you in everything you need :)
