From beginning to end, this is an exceptional place. Friendly staff who go the extra mile, lovely stone houses with little gardens, amazing breakfast, wonderful views...... We were there over New Year and it was ideal. A piece of paradise on the edge of Europe

This is such a cool spot to stay. It feels like you are walking back into history. We loved the feel of the whole place. The houses are comfortable, and have kitchens and a back yard. Everything is made of stone, the houses, the walkways, the walls. It was really pretty, with lots of gardens and flower pots. This is not a luxury hotel. It's more about the experience. We stayed 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Breakfast was good. It's served in the restaurant where they also serve dinner. We had dinner there the night we arrived and were not as pleased. We ate outside at the picnic tables. They have a major cat problem. We love cats, and have a couple of our own. But I do not want them jumping on the chairs and tables, trying to get food. It made for an uncomfortable experience. Choose to sit inside. There are fewer bugs and no cats! The food itself is great. The staff are also wonderful.

Great place for an authentic feel of living in Flores. Staff are very helpful and friendly, and even took our luggage to our next accommodation (which also happens to be owned by the same people), however, they did this without us asking or requesting. Breakfast was great - with warm options one could order from the staff, or you can opt for just the cold cuts etc. A nice romantic setting, where one can see cows, and even donkeys up close. Since the vibe is authentic, note that there is no wifi in the rooms, but you can use the wifi in the reception area. Also, the roads are cobbles, which is very cute and authentic, but be careful that it does get slippery when it rains.

Small picturesque Village that was turned into Holiday homes after the former inhabitants left it, because of an earthquake in the 60's. Very welcoming, friendly and helpful staff! The breakfast and Dinner area might be a little bit cramped, when it's raining outside and every guest is coming at the same time, but If you relax it will do - tranquillo! Breakfast Buffet and Dinner is delicious and of high quality! Scrambled eggs seem to be made of real eggs, not the stuff from the canisters. Next time in Flores we'll be there again!

Staying at Aldeia de Cuada was a unique experience. The small village is charming and very romantic and feels like it froze in time. The location is great and just a 5 minutes drive from Faja Grande and from the waterfalls Ribeira do Ferreiro, which you can see from the village. The staff was friendly and helpful and we loved the tour in the village. We stayed in a 2-bedroom house at the far end. We were on our honeymoon and a bottle of champagne waited for us in the kitchen and was a nice touch. The house had a fairly equipped kitchen, the bed while not great was more comfortable than it looked like (and had plenty of blankets), and we loved our garden and the views around us. A laundry drying rack was also very useful. While most of the time we traveled in Flores and didn't plan to spend too much time in the house, a stormy day left us stranded and we enjoyed relaxing in our little house drinking tea, reading and listening to music (the Bluetooth speaker was a great addition). We arrived at noon on a sunny day and at it was hot and humid inside. My husband who sleeps with the A/C on even in winter was worried the place will get too hot, and the staff immediately went to find us a fan. In hindsight we really didn't need it, it was cool enough at night. But it helped dry our laundry. 😁 Disliked · While we loved the authenticity, some things don't need to be vintage, like the old, worn out towels. The shower was also leaking a bit. We would have appreciated a more comfortable mattress and stronger light bulbs as it gets a little too dark at night. Some of the furniture, like night stands and the kitchen chairs felt very flimsy. As a vintage lover I appreciated the furniture, but they could use some renovation to keep or usable without hurting its original look. At breakfast they offer filtered coffee and charge an extra 2 Euro for a Cappuccino which felt very petty considering the price of the stay. Dinner was overpriced and not great for the price, we only dined there once. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this unique experience. The flaws are minor and very easy to fix, and the only reason we mention them is the high price.

The most unique stay I’ve ever had. You get a stone house with kitchen, dining area, one bathroom, and two bedrooms. It’s rustic, so no TV or Wi-Fi. The location feels like a bio reserve, with great views of the ocean. Breakfast is well worth the add on and make reservations if you plan to have dinner there.

We stayed 4 days at this very nice village. The way they changed the old houses into “hotelrooms” is impressive, it is fully equiped , has a nice modern bathroom and has a small kitchen that we actually used to have a self prepared dinner in our small garden enjoying the evening sun. The restaurant is definitely recommended, the food is excellent and service is friendly.

We stayed off-season but all our needs (a couple of requests, but nonetheless...) were cattered for. The location is very calm and the perfect setting to relax and kick back. The houses are really authentic, so you do have to go through a stone street up to your house. The heating in our place was solely electric, but sufficed. A wood bruner would have been nice, but the logistics of it would have been crazy! We like to sleep in late and wanted to prepare our lunch for the daily trek, so we bought some food locally and brought some kitchen studd with us (some olive oil and salt is all we actually needed). The house is fully stached with kitchen appliances and cutlery. During the rainy and windy days you could feel the weather inside, but we felt safe and managed to relax inside, while taking advantage of the moments the rain stopped to walk around the village and did part of the trek to the next villages, south to Fajãzinha and north to Fajã grande, being that only the path north was easy to get through. You can go south but the path gets steep and with the grown vegetation, it isn't so easy to "cruise". All in all, it was a fantastic stay in one of the best spots we ever slept.

One of the most awe-inspiring places we've stayed in for a long time, the works behind these clustered 17th century stone houses is inspirational, impressive and give you a glimpse into a bygone era. Whilst the hotel accommodation are basic in terms of amenities, l, the space you have is luxurious, the staff are exceptional. From Luiza the breakfast whizz who cooks and serves up a hearty start to the day, to Andre and Paula at reception to the new member Tiago who was exceptional on his first day. Hands down the best ceviche we've ever had, the food is outstanding and you won't find better on the isle of Flores. We shall be back, thank you so much for giving us sisters such a magical place for a reunion half-way between Morocco and Boston!
