The Casa do Tio João is located in the northern coast of the São Jorge Island in the Azores archipelago. Featuring a traditional architecture, this country house offers a confortable place to enjoy peace, quietness and a stunning nature not so easily found. The access to the house is done by two pedestrian trails. Both are irregular and not fit for carry-on luggage. But if you need your luggage to be carried by quad, we provide that service at a cost. First Trail (Serra do Topo - Fajã da Caldeira de Santo Cristo). This trail is 5km until the accomodation (about 2 hours). It is recommended to do this trail to reach the Fajã da Caldeira de Santo Cristo as it goes down and you enjoy magnificent scenery. Second Trail (Fajã dos Cubres - Fajã da Caleira de Santo Cristo). This trail is 4km long, and it is less technical than the first. It is recommended for untrained trekkers or to leave the Fajã da Caldeira de Santo Cristo. There are no public transportations to get from the airport or ferry to the start of the trails. You can either go by taxi or rent a car. Casa do Tio João can also provide this service at a cost. The Caldeira de Santo Cristo, where the house is located, is a village that is located in a fajã. A fajã is a landslide due to earthquakes or lava field tongues throwing itself into the sea. They are close to the sea with magnificent cliffs next to them. They are the best attraction of São Jorge with its 76 fajãs all around the island, but this one (Santo Cristo) is known to be the most beautiful. It has no grid electricity, so there is quietness and a clear sky perfect for watching stars. The house has battery-powered electricity from sunset to 23h00, so that visitors can charge their electronic devices and have light in all divisions of the house. Guests can use the fully equipped kitchen and condiments (salt, olive oil, garlic, etc) available in the house to prepare their own meals or use the barbecue facilities and enjoy their meals al fresco. Providing a 24-hour front desk, Casa do Tio João is just a 5-minute walk away from the Fajã's lagoon where guests can swim and enjoy the waterfalls. The property is 30 km away from Velas where guests can take the ferry boat connected to the other islands of the archipelago.
