Magnificent property surrounded by the purest nature that characterizes the island of São Miguel in the Azores. With an exuberant view of the mountains and the sea, this property of more than 13,000m2 contains a house once built by a wealthy family from São Miguel who would eventually return from Brazil in 1907.
Known as the “House of the Sisters”, this property had been an education center for children run for several years by a religious congregation.
Several inhabitants of Lomba do Button even took their first school steps in this House, and they remember them fondly. Some of them were baptised and married in the small chapel existing at that time in the house.
Licensed in Rural Tourism as a Country House with a 5-star rating by the Tourism Authorities, the villa was carefully renovated in 2005 to offer its guests a true local experience with an extremely high quality service whose score of 9.7 on Booking is revealing.
The villa offers 5 themed rooms, 3 of them with private bathroom and two with shared bathroom, a traditional kitchen with several elements in basaltic stone such as the tile on the floor and a cozy living and dining room that also works as the distribution center for the various compartments of the house.
All rooms have central air conditioning and the living room is heated by a wood burning stove.
An outdoor patio where you can contemplate the immensity of the green landscape, a playground for the little ones, small farms with fruit trees as bananas, strawberries, avocado, etc and an extensive pasture that borders a water line. The farm also has some chickens, goats, turkeys, ducks and the property mascot - Tobias, the donkey!
Sold with all furniture included (except some personal items), position and access to booking platforms and everything you need to continue the business.
A unique property, full of history and great charm!
