    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    Situated on a farm road in the hills above the village of Cedros on the north side of Faial island, the house is surrounded by pastures with a distant view of the ocean. It is very quiet with the only traffic being the farmers passing on the way to their fields and you can expect to see herds of cows being driven along the road.

Wild Ginger Cottage is perfect for a couple seeking that peaceful rural retreat. The owners live opposite and went far beyond the call of duty to ensure we had a great time, bravo Sian and Ian. Faial is one of those places where if your heart rate doesn't drop instantly you arrive, seek medical help. Wonderful pace of life, friendly people, stunning views wherever you look. Aldinas cafe/shop is just down the road (steep walk) and answered all our food/drink needs. Capelhinos takes your breath away. The caldera has to be walked round and was amazing. Whale/dolphin watch with Pedro and his team at Hortacetaceos is an absolute must do. It's an island to take in slowly like a fine wine, rather than rush with some taxi tour. We spent 12 glorious days there, exploring every inch on foot and by car, never got bored once, how could you. Its not for beach lovers, its for landscape lovers and people who don't want crowds. Go ahead, contact Sian and book it. more

Ho soggiornato recentemente con la mia famiglia in questa casa. I proprietari sono davvero attenti a tutti i minimi dettagli, la casa è comoda, spaziosa, molto pulita, nuova ed efficiente.
La cucina è totalmente attrezzata. Al nostro arrivo abbiamo addirittura trovato alcuni prodotti tipici. I letti sono comodissimi, c'è una collezione di libri e DVD e, anche se il segnale è un po' debole (ma solo perché la casa ha pareti massicce) c'è WI-FI. Il posto è molto bello, tranquillo, ma non isolato, lo consiglierei a tutti coloro che amano la natura e le passeggiate ma che vogliono comunque stare comodi I proprietari sono molto generosi e simpatici.
Ci tornerei molto volentieri.
