About the neighborhood
The parish of Santa Bárbara, including the Norte zone, where Casa do Norte is located, is one of the most surprising and colorful scenery of Santa Maria. The rural landscape is carved with beautiful houses painted white and blue, representing the traditional and unique architecture of this island. From the green of the fields to the blue ocean, on this area is also located one of the most beautiful bays of the Azores: the Bay of São Loureço, a breathtaking view and a nice sandy beach.
Getting around
Beautiful natural landscape around Casa do Norte. Ocean and mountain views, a perfect match between the green of the fiel and the blue from the sky and the ocean. Private area and a nice garden around with fresh herbs that guests can use to cook or for making tea.
