This old wine cellar was reconstructed in order to be a practical house and provide comfort for those coming to visit São Miguel. It is located in the outskirts of Ponta Delgada in a calm place surrounded by woods and green fields.
Casa de Baco is part of big property where I live with my family. Inside you will find a rural place were pasture and forest dominate the landscape. Here you can go for a walk or bike ride and in the way, find some impressive volcanic stone buildings from the time of the great orange economy, almost 200 years ago. Outside, Pópulo beaches, markets and restaurants are near by, just 5 minutes away by car.
Guests will have full access to the house, garden and grills. For the walks in the property guests will have to request in advance, so we can close the dogs that roam freely inside the property (except in the vincinity of Casa de Baco)
As we live right by the side of Casa de Baco, at the end of the day, after the days work we will be always nearby. Although we like to respect our guests privacy, we can also find ourselves grilling with those open to hang with us.
Because this house is located in a rural area and as the name "Natureza" suggests wild life is easy to find, this includes birds but also lizards and bugs! It is a possibility to find centipedes and cockroaches inside the house. Non are dangerous.
Please do not use the white towels provided after a thermal bath, for the Iron present in our waters, stains permanently. For that purpose please use beach towels.
