IMAGINE WAKING UP SURROUNDED BY THE WHISPERS OF THE WAVES OF THE SEA
The great passion we feel for the Island of S. Jorge, with its almost 250km2 of nature in a pure state, classified as a Biosphere Nature Reserve, inspired us to the creation of Abrigo da Cascata, a place surrounded by the waterfall that gave rise to the denomination of this touristic accommodation. The typical houses rose from the ruins, becoming a cozy space that aims to be not only an indoor welcoming place, but also a starting point for adventure among friends or family gathering.
We invite you to know this quiet place, in the middle of the Atlantic, experience a true connection with nature and surround yourself with its people and traditions.
We stand with open arms to welcome you, welcome to the Abrigo da Cascata
A RECOVERED FAJÃ
The Abrigo da Cascata accommodation arises from the recovery of the ruins of the group of houses that made up the Fajã of Cavalete where two families lived, Mrs. Ermelinda do Cavalete and Mr. Bernardo who remained in the Fajã all year round and took care of the cultivation of their lands and water mills.
According to locals, Ermelinda, affectionately treated as the “grandmother of the Cavalete”, had a traditional oven and baked a lot of bread and sweets for the festivities of the Divine Holy Spirit and always had the house open to receive her neighbors, friends and family to taste her delicacies.
From the ruins originated the accommodation, keeping the welcoming character of the “grandmother of the Cavalete”, the architectural project was worked to maintain the originality of the Fajã, complementing with the comfort that our guests deserve.
