About Fontes Viewpoint
Looking forward to spend a few days in Graciosa island? Don’t look any further, you’ve come to the right place. The house is located 1,5 km away from the center of the village. It has an awesome view (stretching from Almas village to Barra) and all the accommodations that you need for your holidays.
Graciosa island is known for its underwater world, being the host of the Underwater Tourism Biennial, and for its natural Thermal Baths (Spa) in Carapacho – it is possible to schedule Rheumatic and Hydrology appointments, between 3rd July and 15th September. The island is a Biosphere Reserve.
Quiet zone. 1,5kms from Santa Cruz village center. On the opposite house you can buy some fresh cheese from Mrs. Elvina and on the left side of the house traditional local wine from Mr. António in his old winery. Everyday, except on sundays, the bakery guy passes in front of the house selling fresh bread. Pay attention to the horn sound: 8.00am and 12:00pm.
You can rent a bicycle, motorcycle or car – It’s the best way to explore the island. But if you prefer, and your legs allow it, you can do it by foot. Warning: you better be in shape.
