Gaia offers unique features within its unusual one bedroom apartment layout: independent access from the outside world by way of a stone staircase which goes on to the common pátio, where you can relax outdoor; the connection to the rest of the house is near the Living Room. There’s a comfortable cm.200×145 double bed with organic latex mattress, accommodation is only double (no twin). The suite has a wardrobe, a kitchenette with small stove/oven and kitchen utensils, a cupboard, a sink, and table. The guest can also enjoy a traditional woodfire oven with chimney and wood, and an old kitchen iron plate which can be used as a fireplace. The bathroom with its large double bath (cm.190×90) is a mark in local history as it was the first bathroom in the village of Fajã Grande, built in 1929 by Lucindo de Freitas!

“Don’t take your souvinirs in your pocket, take them in your mind!” Beautiful stay in this historical house, Suite 2000 is really special!! We enjoyed listening to the Cagarro, 'yellow nose - storm-diver' at nights. Spirit of Stéfano is not only in this house, it’s already everywhere on this island. Best wishes and love. August 9th, 2016

Flores marked the beginning of part 2 of our exploration of the Azores.We loved the island it is breathtaking. The Argonauta is a kind of place quirky and historic and so peaceful. Plus everyone has been so friendly! Namaste. August 19th, 2016

Argonauta was a very welcoming and comfortable place we called home for a few days in this beautiful wild island. We were very well received, thank you, see you soon. August 28th, 2016

Dear Stéfano, Flores is a gem in the Atlantic, hopefully it remains so for many years. And your hotel is the perfect place for a stay on this island. Hotels like thus are the reason why we keep booking the smaller places. Just perfect! Thank for everything and hopefully see you again soon! September 2nd, 2016

Flores is truly magical place. Thanks you for sharing and providing such a unique and cozy accomodation that made us feel so comfortable and relaxed! September 17th, 2016
Catie & Matt AllieWisconsin, USA
Grazie per averci dato la possibilità di godere di un paradiso simile. Qui il tempo si ferma, il silenzio ti fa apprezzare a pieno la maestosità delle cascate, del verde intensissimo e poi l’oceano così grande! Tutti cordiali e semplicemente genuini, e poi il più buon gin&tonic gustato in riva all’oceano al chiarore di una candela, musica di sottofondo. Ricordi che mi accompagneranno a lungo. 19 settembre, 2016
Giulia & Roberto RodioItalia
Flores, island of thousand shades of green that is for sure. Thank you very much. We enjoy our stay. September 22th, 2016
Claudia & Axel SitterGermany
What a wonderful place you have created here on beautiful Flores! Your photographies, the little things collected from all over the world inside the old house give a special atmosphere which we very much enjoyed! If you step outside the door you find a charming place with incredible waterfalls, the rough sea and (if you are lucky) an amazing sunset. Thank you very much for being a great host to us, for our nice conversations, the great breakfast and your recommendations to explore the nature! Danke. April 15th, 2017
Sonja & Martin BreitenbachGermany
Un soggiorno breve ma un’ottima intesa! A presto. 19 aprile 2017

What a wonderful house on a spectacular island! Thank you Stéfano for your help and hospitality, we should have loved to stay longer and hope to return to see you someday soon. We thoroughly enjoyed our jeep tour with you and would recommend it to anyone who is going to it. Thank you so much Stéfano. May 16th, 2017

Ok, so what is so special about this place? Just about everything! We have had a wonderful time, many thanks to you Stéfano for looking after us so well. We loved the rooms, the cats and admired your pictures of India. Our hope is, that if we visit you again in the future, that Fajã Grande is much the same as we see it today... a very special place. May 26th, 2014

Grazie Stefano per l’accoglienza strepitosa e la tua simpatia. L’ambiente è eccezionale e ci si sente parte della storia che ha vissuto questa struttura. Flores è una bellissima isola con una rigogliosa natura e una pace che fa dimenticare qualsiasi problema. Ci torneremo sicuramente. 6 giugno, 2017
Franca & Enzo PisoniItalia
Dear Stèfano, it was a pleasure for us to be here in your beautiful guesthouse. Every picture and little things in every corner of your house showed us the great experiences you made - very exciting! You really have a lovely home here on Flores, thank you to be part of it for 4 days of our honeymoon. Also thank you for shown us the best hiking-tours, we’ve done two of them and saw such amazing views of Flores. Best wishes to you. June 13th, 2017
