PATIO Lodge
Reviews (1)
5 out of 5

PÁTIO Lodge is located in the small village of Cedros at the North Coast of Faial Island. From your room you have great views to the waves of the Atlantic Ocean full of Whales and Dolphins.
The Lodge offers Lodge Doublerooms and an Garden Loft. The standard doublerooms have a private bathroom and a king size bed which can be separated. The Garden Loft Room has the the same standard, but additional the use of a private kitchenette, living room and a private terrace.
Every morning a large breakfast is offered in the Lounge and in the evening we offer typical Azorean dinners at the fire place of the lounge.
Sitting at the terrace in front of the open fire place and enjoying a cool beer or a nice island wine is a great experience.
... and thousand and thousand of stars above you in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Dinner is cooked by our local chef every day from local ingredients for 20 € including wine, water, starter, salad and desert. Our chef loves to prepare you a picnic which you can take a away to the spot where you want to go.
If you need any transfer we are happy to help. We offer Land Rover Defenders to transfer you and your equipment to any place on the island for 1 €/km.

Location

Sitting pretty, 800 miles out into the Atlantic, these islands blasted by swells from the North Atlantic hold a multitude of thick, heavy, reefs and points. Low crowds and short to lived but high quality swells. The 360 degree swell exposure allows almost any wind and swell combination. The locals have been surfing on the island since the 1920s but it was American servicemen who popularised it in the 1960s. Sea temperatures range from 17 to 22°C or 62 to 72°F. The village of Cedros, home of the Lodge, is located 20 driving minutes from the airport and from the pictureesque island town Horta. The island has beaches with the orientation to south to west, north to west and east. The nearest beach is 15 minutes drive from the Lodge. On request we offer transfers to any place of the island.
