Those looking for peace, quiet and comfort have found it! The Forest House is a beautiful house with its own driveway 100m from the road, in the middle of a small forest but with ocean view. No neighbours, yet a few restaurants, a shop and the most beautiful bathing place just 5 minutes away.
Forest House is an experience in a different world, the world of the wind through the trees, the ocean, the scent of flowering trees and fruit blossoms. The property is approximately one acre and the house is almost in the middle of pinetrees, faia, mandarine, tangerine, guava, plum and even pineapple plants and I won’t even start about all the different flowers.
There are 3 bedrooms, the master bedroom has a 200×160 double bed and en suite bathroom with corner bath. The two other bedrooms have a shared bathroom with shower, washbasin and toilet. One has a 190×140 double and the other room 2 single beds. One of the bedrooms has a mezzanine with a double mattress reachable by a ladder, where an additional 2 people or children can sleep. Another mezzanine above the living room is a cozy area with a round window overlooking the forest and the ocean. There is a single bed up there as well. Patio doors open out onto the terrace and the garden, which faces south, the sun all day. The garden is a very large lawn with trees, an ideal place for children to play safely.
The kitchen is well equipped with 4-burner gas stove, oven, toaster, juicer, coffee maker, fridge and freezer, not to mention pots, pans, plates and dishes, glasses and mugs. There is a washing machine for your convenience.
A tv and a DVD-player may be used for watching DVD’s, of which there is a generous collection to choose from. There is no cable TV or internet connection.
Forest House is just down the road from the municipal horse stables. Horse trail riding and lessons are available for everyone at very reasonable prices.
The are is ideal for hikers, a numerous amount of trails and forest roads are going through this part of the island. Around every corner is another surprising view of one or other aspect of this beautiful island.
Whale watching and other water acivities are all in Horta, de main city on the island.

The airport is 15 minutes driving.
The village Varadouro is just down the road and offers one of the most beautiful swimming places of the whole island. It is a sea water fed pool, hacked out in the lava rocks with an adjacent pool for children. There are several access points to the ocean itself as well.
The Forest House is very private and quiet in its own forest, close to the horse riding stables and the ocean.
