Varadouro is an enchanting place well off Faial's beaten roads. Lodged meters from the sea (great natural sea pool) beneath the cliffs, the residence offers reasonably priced (very) simple and clean rooms and semi-detached bungalows (our option - which I advise). A peaceful place to rest after a day's hike!
We particularly appreciated the service and the warm welcome offered by Marlena - and the cook's delicious lapas (the best we've tasted on the Islands).
Great option if you're staying outside Horta.
