In 2016 we bought a sweet little stone house on Terceira Island in the Azores. We loved this house, the neighbors and the old, rural nature of the area. Eventually we started sharing it with friends, family and soon, strangers as a short-term rental.
In 2022 we sold this little gem and upgraded to a nearby neighborhood called Serretinha. This area was always our favorite on the island because it has a micro-climate, is very quiet, and close to the ocean.
This micro-climate is well-known for enabling Serretinha to be sunny, while only 5 minutes away it is foggy. Our new house faces directly south, providing ideal exposure on the sunny days. We love lingering on the little deck on the front of the house in the evenings, just watching the birds, clouds and waves.
Another great feature of our house in Serretinha is the fact that it is much less humid than many other parts of the island. Mold and mildew are a constant problem for a lot of houses, fortunately the Villa Sea and Sky is virtually odor and mildew free.
