Adegas das Canadas are a set of four typical houses: the Adega Pedra do Lagar, the Adega Velha, the Casa da Vigia and the Casa da Figueirinha. They are located in the Parish of Calheta de Nesquim 18 km from the village of Lajes do Pico.
The Adega Velha and the Pedra do Lagar winery are located in Canadas, an area of vineyards protected by lava stone corrals that characterize a significant part of the island's landscape and which earned it the classification of world heritage. The little houses that exist in this part of the parish are mainly wineries where artisanal wine is produced with scented wine and the delicious grapes harvested. These nice little houses (wineries) are also used as holiday homes. Pedra do Lagar and Adega Velha were, in a very recent past, wineries for artisanal winemaking. They were rebuilt for summer houses maintaining the original architecture.
Casa da Vigia is located in an area where you can enjoy a wide view of the ocean. This place was used like watchman in the beginnings of the whaling in the parish. The house has high sentimental value because it came from a family heritage and, before being rebuilt, it was the home of old whalers.
These three houses are close to the sea allowing you to enjoy its beauty and grandeur. Very close by is the natural pool of the "Poça das Mujas", whose crystalline waters invite a pleasant dip.
Casa da Figueirinha was rebuilt in 2018 maintaining its original exterior architecture but undergoing the necessary remodeling inside to create a better organization of the space and more comfort to the guests.
Casa da Figueirinha is situated half-way between the sea and the mountains, surrounded by green fields. It is located one kilometer from the sea, the beach area and the center of the parish and is the ideal place for a quiet holiday in full contact with nature.
