We really enjoyed our stay at Casa do Canto, the owners were very friendly and the house was well stocked with some food on arrival, toilet paper, shampoo etc which was much appreciated. The house is well equipped, the beds comfortable and there is even a washing machine. The children in particular enjoyed the swimming pool and large garden to run around in.
The view from the house was amazing and we really enjoyed sitting out for dinner.
Candelaria is a quiet village so a car would be recommended, there is parking on the property.
I can't understand why no-one has reviewed this lovely property this year! The villa was every bit as good as the photos, with the roof terrace and pool area being the highlights. The stunning view from the roof terrace is also the view from the double bedroom which was an unexpected bonus. The villa is very well-equipped with all the essentials, plenty of towels, limitless hot water, powerful showers and plenty of space. Although the owners live next door, you wouldn't know they were there and we only met their charming son Rui when we arrived and left again. The villa is well located, especially for Sete Cidades and is only half an hour from the airport. A guest book would have been useful in the house to leave suggestions for future guests but since there wasn't, here are a couple of tips. The local restaurant O Sole Mio is within easy walking distance and we ate there three times during our week. It is essentially a pizza place but they offer daily pasta and meat or fish specials. It is very reasonably priced - we had three pizzas, a pasta dish, 3 pints of beer, a bottle of wine, three desserts and two coffees all for €59! You need to book in advance if you want a table outside. If you are planning a whale-watching trip, we were recommended two companies - Sea Colours, who were unfortunately fully-booked and Terra Azul - as they are both very careful about the welfare of the whales and dolphins, but again you should book in advance. All in all a fabulous week and definitely one of my favourite destinations.
