2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Cedros, Faial Island, Azores
This beautifully renovated stone cottage sleeps four in two bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom. Hidden amid rolling green countryside with views of the sea and neighbouring islands, birdsong fills the garden and the rest of the world seems far away. Make the most of long summer evenings watching the light change on Pico’s summit as the sun sets. Grill fresh fish on the barbecue and dine on the terrace under the stars.

2 comfortable bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms - sleeps 4 in one double and two single beds.
Bright and airy open plan living/dining/kitchen area.
Well-equipped, modern kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine.
Good internet connection (Wifi).

Interaction with guests
This is a self-contained cottage with private access and its own garden. Guests can come and go as they please and do not share the space with hosts.
However, hosts, or a friend, will meet guests to give them the keys and show them the cottage and will be available (either in person or by telephone) to answer questions during your stay.
We are keen to share the beauty and interest of the Azores with our guests and would be happy to suggest things to do or assist with booking activities eg whale watching

The river cottage is a very well appointed cottage. We very much appreciated the nice showers as we were a bit unfortunate with the weather. It has lovely views and also has great facilities such as an outdoor shower and a hose for rinsing wetsuits. Kirsten and Gary are great hosts with a lot of local knowledge. Kirsten was even...

About the neighbourhood
An easy 12 minute walk through the fields to reach the sea and a local swimming hole with good snorkelling around the rocks.
3 restaurants (and excellent take away pizzeria) within a few minutes drive, plus many more in Horta.
Great walks locally and elsewhere on the island.
The Azores are famous for their whale watching - not to be missed.
Climbing Pico - Portugal's highest mountain - is a fantastic day trip for the adventurous.
Getting around
A rental car is recommended in this location. However, there is a bus stop nearby with 2 - 3 busses a day (Mon-Fri only) to/from Horta and taxis on the island are reasonable (eg 20 - 25 euros from Horta, or the airport, to the cottage)
