Cantinho do Paraiso

Vila do Porto, Santa Maria, Azores, Portugal
Sustainable Style in the Azores

The name of this vacation home for rent in the Azores translates into English as "a corner of paradise", and that's what its owners wanted to a create – a place, they say, where real happiness can be shared. Their private idyll is made up of a modern villa and a traditional casita that offer views of the entire island and the vast Atlantic Ocean from their hilltop perch. They can be rented separately, or together for larger groups.

This vacation home for rent in the Azores was brought to life by the owner and an Ibiza-based designer, with Balinese and bohemian influences, but it's very much focused on the environment around it. 

The structures are eco-builds made with sustainable and recycled materials, and they're located on two hectares of land that hold a private, protected forest which guests are welcome to explore. The larger of the two units, the Villa, has a skylight opening onto a living roof that's filled with marigolds, herbs and medicinal plants.  

The Villa encourages the outside in, with its floor-to-ceiling windows and garden access from every room. There are two en-suite bedrooms (one with a Jacuzzi, the other with a shower), a well-equipped kitchen, a large dining table, and a tea station where you can make your own infusions from the island's plants. Outside, you'll find a barbecue and large dining table, plus a stone bath, which can be filled with hot water, for indulgent outdoor bathing.

The Casita is traditional Santa Maria style, with a characteristic tall chimney and gabled roof, using natural stone and wood. One bathroom has a circular bath, built into the space where a wood oven used to be, while the other has a shower, Japanese toilet and stone basin. Outside, there's a terrace with sunbeds, gazebo, barbecue, and vegetable garden, which guests are welcome to enjoy.
