The Casa do Peão has its name from the old Portuguese word for farmer or peon. It refers to the Casas’ own garden in which guests are welcome to participate in growing and harvesting their own fruits and herbes. The original stone house was first mentioned in the official registers in 1840 and it still transports the architecture from the olden days with its thick stone walls. In 2015/2016, it has been fully renovated and new bedrooms and bathrooms have been added, resulting in two independent units:
The Padeira is in the west part of the house. Its name refers to an old baking oven in the kitchen that is part of the traditional Azorean houses. People would use it at the same time for drying their laundry.
La Padeira has a fully equipped kitchen, a dining room with a sofa bed, one sleeping room for 2 people, and bathroom with a shower. The big terrace in front of the house as well as a smaller morning terrace overlooking the ocean can be used e.g., for sunbathing, brunches or social evenings.
Lareira and Padeira are jointly booked by reserving Casa do Peão.
