The house

The Casa do Oleiro is a country house set in a rural environment where the beauty and tranquility of the surrounding scenery promises you Santa Maria’s best view.

The Casa do Oleiro, is a restoring of typical Santa Maria’s house, which combines the tranquility of the countryside to the art that once was one of the most important activities in Santa Maria - the pottery.

In selfcatering, full autonomy and privacy, with a double bedroom, a bathroom and an open area with kitchen and living room, the Casa do Oleiro is the perfect place to enjoy the simplicity of rural tourism.

Surroundings the Casa do Oleiro

The Casa do Oleiro is located on the north side of the island of Santa Maria, in the parish of Santa Barbara, where you will be fascinated with the landscape of the mountain that finds the sea. The Peace and tranquility are your closest neighbors, in a palce that privileges a unique magic, perfect place to find your peace.

Countryside of excellence, in the place of Norte there are less than a dozen houses for permanent housing, so here you’ll find silence and privacy to enjoy the breathtaking view of the islet Lagoinhas and deep, on favorable days, sighting the island of São Miguel.

On the hill stands the Chapel of Lourdes, the first temple built in the Azores in honor of Lady (after the apparitions in Lourdes, France, in 1858), which stands out as being the only chapel in the archipelago with door facing the North.

Norte is located approximately 6 km away from São Lourenço bay, the major panorama symbol of Santa Maria Island, and 4 km from the center of the parish of Santa Bárbara.


Since February 2019 Casa do Oleiro has changed ownership.

We are performing some transformation and upgrading works which makes Caso do Oleiro unavailable until end 2022.

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.
Enjoy your stay on the beautiful island of Santa Maria.
