Casa do Oleiro
The Casa do Oleiro is a country house set in a rural environment where the beauty and tranquility of the surrounding scenery promises its guests the opportunity to experience the Santa Maria from the best view.The Casa do Oleiro, is a restoring of typical Santa Maria’s house, which we kept outside the architecture of the traditional houses, highlighting the chimney of a wedge, one of two typical types of chimneys of the Island.
The house combines the tranquility of the countryside to the art that once was one of the most important activities in Santa Maria - the pottery. Thus, in the House, the table pottery and small handcrafted objects merge with the equipment needed for a comfortable stay.
