Embedded in Nature
We stayed 13 nights in one of the very cute houses on the shore of Faja dos Padres. We had a wonderful time. Only the sounds of nature: the waves, seagulls, canary birds and falcons. I must say that there were quite high waves in the first three days, probably caused by a far away depression on the ocean (we had no wind ourselves on that moment). These waves made quite a lot of noise, which for some of us took some time to get used to. For others it was just a meditating sound!
This was the only point which took some time to get used to.
Further it was paradise!
The house was clean, and from the kitchen, the bathroom/toilet and the terrace we had a wide view on sea and shore line.
Walking on the plantation was wonderful, with beautiful flowers, butterflies (in mid-winter!) and birds.
We had every day our breakfast under the palm trees near the restaurant: simple and good food, with fruits mango juice from the plantation.
During lunch time you can have food from the lunch menu: for instance a hamburger.
Diner: there are good salads or fried fish. Our favorite was the espada with mango sauce.
Sometimes, on our request, the food was delivered in our house.
The elevator is not scaring. It is every time an event!
On this moment (beginning of February) they are testing a new cable way (teleferico), which will make the plantation easier to reach, because it will go all the way from the ridge of the mountain down to the plantation, so you don't have to climb (and descend) the stairs to the elevator anymore.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
It is a place where you get detached from time. We did not watch television for a second, we did not watch the news on internet. We just talked with each other and with other guests, having all the time for each other.
Will we come back ? Sure!

Wir waren das 2. Mal innerhalb eines halben Jahres dort, weil ich verliebt bin, in diesen Platz, die Freundlichkeit, Naturnähe und den Komfort. Wir kommen sicherlich wieder und bedanken uns für die schöne Zeit und den hervorragenden Service. Besonderen Gruß an Nelio unseren super freundlichen Liftmann und an Bruno der alles, auch Sonderwünsche bestens organisiert und erfüllt hat.

working farm next to the sea
Very welcoming and friendly, we especially enjoyed the combination of working farm next to the sea, the lifts are really special as are the cliffs themselves, where you can see geology in action.

La maison, face à la mer, est un rêve
Accueil attentionné à l´arrivée.
Chaque jour, le contact a été très chaleureux, au petit déjeuner, et en prenant L'ascenseur.
La maison, face à la mer, est un rêve.
Et manger des fruit et des légumes BIO qui ont poussé sur place rendent le séjour paradisiaque.
Merci à vous tous.

a shower with a view
We really enjoyed the terrace and the Sunbeds.
The view from the kitchen is stunning.
Taking a shower is a whole new experience with such view!

We fully enjoyed our 4-day stay in Faja dos Padres. The staff is very kind and everything had been perfectly organised. Specially enjoyed the fruits and herbs all around the place, the simply beautiful comfort of "Casa Julia" as well as the delicious self-made pitanga confiture each morning. The surroundings of Faja are very rare and intact with an amazing energy which lets you completely relax and souse into this stunning nature. We will definitely be returning!
