Azorean Experiences - Flores - OPEI
Aldeia da Cuada, the recovered village in the Garden of the Azores
Abandoned in the 60s, when its inhabitants emigrated to America, the Aldeia da Cuada was restored by Teotónia and Carlos Silva, who wisely knew how to establish the connection between the hard rustic style of the past and the modern comfort needs of the present when renovating the rural design of the old stone houses. Unhurried, enjoy the sound of birds and the scent of dry hay, fresh grass and laurels with the sweet perfume of the flowers. In a world where scenery takes the breath away, peacefulness will be your most faithful companion.
