All very spacious and well maintained. Pool was especially enjoyable. Also loved watching the cat family with their three kittens. Definitely need a car. But very easy to drive around the island and nothing is too far away. We used the large supermarket at Ribeira Grande for our big shop. There are also closer little supermarkets and spars that on the whole seemed reasonable value. We had lovely weather all week and kept lots of the windows and doors open. No issue with insects, including mosquitoes (nice breeze most of the week so maybe this helped to keep them away). Would definitely recommend.

It is located in a beautiful part of the Azores. For European accommodation it is quite spacious and large. Everything was very clean. Only improvements I can suggest is that communication is a bit better with the host- i didn't find out where to pick up the keys until the last minute. Also better space could be made of the storage room and living area. Such as putting a washing machine in the spare room and getting a modern couch for the living room as the existing couch was quite horrible.
