Casa do Porto Formoso

Many were the summers spent, by the owners, in this house. The proximity of the beach, surrounded by quiet and welcoming neighbours, were there was never too much people, were the main reason that summer after summer, one to two months were spent at Casa do Porto Formoso. This living style is still present in the house. From the Pool table, with a lid, so it could be used for those days that visitors came, to the old oars that belonged to a handmade boat, from the red flowers in theirs green vases to the cow skins hanging on the walls, all the elements in this house have a history to tell.

Additional Location Information

Porto Formoso is a small village on the northern side of the island, a typical fisherman’s cove.

This house is situated on the beach called praia dos Moinhos, a large beach that is out of the mainstream route of the summer visitors. With its little water streams crossing towards the sea and its rock island siting in the ocean guarding the waters, you will find peace and quietude that are only broke by the sound of the waves and the birds.

Near the beach, a cold waterfall will great you with its freshness after you make a little walk between trees and rocks to find it. If long walks are your preference, there are newly pedestrian routes recovered and you can find, apart from the village, wonderful viewpoints in the surroundings.

Porto Formoso is a secret summer paradise, held by locals that there have their summer houses. If you visit it in the winter you’ll find yourself with the place almost all to yourself. And it’s a delight to do so, solitude, a warm fireplace and the trebling sound of the winter sea crashing in the beach is breathtaking.
