We have found our very own Paradise in the Biosphere Reserve of Graciosa! We decided to renovate and expand an old beautiful farmhouse on this wonderful and peaceful island. The view of the Ocean and on the other 4 islands is breathtaking and very rarely to be found! You will love our garden and the tranquility, just listening to the birds and the waves of the Ocean. Our house is made in a traditional style but you find every comfort you need, at any time of the day and at any time of the year.

The space
Our house has two parts, Casa Velha and Casa Bela Vista.
Casa Velha is built from volcanic stone and has two large bedrooms with overall 3 beds, a sunroom/ glasshouse with a spectacular view of the Ocean, a newly renovated bathroom, a modern and fully equipped spacious kitchen (refrigerator, dishwasher, washing machine, oven, kitchen aid, coffee machine, and toaster). If needed, a stool and/or bed for children can be provided for free.
Graciosa is the island with the best weather of the Azores, for all cases however, there is a cosy wood stove in each of the two parts of the house. In the garden there are several terraces, seating areas, as well as romantic areas.
We always contact our guests and ask for permission, in the case someone else wants to rent the other part of the house at the same time. Because in that case the kitchen would be shared, but still each one has their own fridge and tools. Most people enjoy that.
Our only neighbor is a friendly old german captain.
The nearest supermarket is 7 minutes, the next bathing area is only a 15 min walk away, and the ocean is just 200m away. In the neighbouring village of Carapacho, you can discover the freshly renovated Spa and bathhouse which houses extremely mineral-rich water and a sea water pool.
Hiking trails are also located closely to the house.

My husband Michael and I live in Berlin and are both self-employed, as graphic designers and as an Eastern therapist and healing practitioner.
During a 4 week trip in the Azores 2012 we landed at the end, away from the tourist stream, on the extraordinarily beautiful island of Graciosa. We fell in love with this varied Atlantic island right away. On the hardly populated south coast, not far from Luz, overlooking 4 islands, we found our dream place. Everything worked out so wonderfully that in the summer of 2015, we were able to finish our farmhouse with its annexe and furnishings, supported by friendly helpers.
We are happy to rent the "Quinta Graciosa" as a whole or only the farmhouse (Casa Velha) to nature lovers!
We enjoyed setting up our house comfortably and modern/cozy. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could think of, as we are passionate about cooking ourselves.
The garden also grows lush, because Milu, our help on site, loves plants just as much as we do.
