“Solar da Bica” is a cozy sanctuary, facing the mountains and the best of nature, with all the comforts you want. Our house is situated in a romantic, rustic and idyllic site which is itself in the middle of the largest area of ancient forest known as Laurissilva. This specific kind of forest is considered by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The building, with modern architecture, looks entirely in place in the oldest and most luxuriant landscape of the site and provides a functional setting for rest and leisure. There is an inside, heated swimming pool, with a gymnasium, sauna and solarium around a central patio made with a centerpiece of volcanic rock flagstones. The communal area is based around an old press. Here children have a place to play, while adults have a relaxed drink, read a book or simply enjoy some socializing. This room overlooks the valley and the tops of the mountains, which constitute spectacular views. There is also a wood burning fireplace, which makes the “Solar Da Bica" even more welcoming. The silence and peacefulness surrounding the house and the stunning views make it the perfect place for a refreshing stay. From here you can easily explore the northern coast and the rest of the island. You may visit the limestone mines and lime kiln, which are about 1 km from the “Solar da Bica “. The place was one of the most important sites for the extraction of mineral resources.
