During a 2001 holiday, we have discovered the ruins of the of this property and then bought it. It consisted of the remainders of a farm in the typical Azores style made of solid, dark lava stone.
Forty years the houses had been abandoned and they were built probably already towards the end of the 19th century. We acquired additional surrounding plots of land and began the restoration in spring 2003. Our concern was to preserve as much of the old building substance and structure as possible. Also, the architectural style of the newly build parts should fit to the island typical architecture.
In the summer of 2004, the apartments of Casa Corvo and Casa Pico were ready, so that we could move on it in the year from Switzerland on the island. Then, the construction of our today's House began Casa Graciosa and the initial environment work. In the summer of 2007, we could then take this House. In 2005, the ideal opportunity to buy former farmhouse plus the adjacent plot of land with a modest, surrendered. Also this House consisted of dark lava stone, was probably about the same age as our ruins and added our property with the associated property optimally. After it was used for a few years as a Garden House, it was also renovated and refurbished total. Despite the unmistakable modernization succeeded well, receive much of the old and traditional charm. The first guests were in the summer of 2013.
The garden was gradually with lava stone walls divided and structured, a lily pond with sunbathing terrace, a Pergola, a greenhouse and a vegetable garden and many more or less exotic plants, shrubs and trees planted.
As can be found in addition to wide range of flowers, vegetables and spices such as Various palms, Agave and Aloe species, an old plum tree, different Guavensorten, citruses (oranges, lemons, grapefruit, kumquats), avocados, mangoes, lychee, bananas, papaya, quince, tree tomatoes and berries.
