Peaceful cosy house with amazing views of the sea

5 of 5
Thank you to Nuno and Marta for a fantastic stay at you beautiful home. It was immaculately clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The views of the sea were amazing and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony of an evening after a busy day exploring the island. The property was in a quiet village but easily accessible for the island . We would recommend staying here , we were made to feel most welcome by Nuno and Marta. Thank you for your hospitality. On the whole the Azores is a fantastic place to visit , where the locals are extremely friendly. The scenery is amazing with many walks, hikes and hot springs to enjoy.

Great little house in a good location.

5 of 5
We had good communication with Andrea who was friendly and helpful when she welcomed us to the property. We hired a car for our stay on the island so the electric gate with onsite parking was a bonus. It felt very secure. The house had everything we needed with a good outdoor barbecue area at the rear. Wifi was excellent and beds were comfortable. It is well located for exploring the island and a five minute drive to the harbour of Lagoa where there are some great fish restaurants. We thoroughly recommend the seafood risotto at O Capitao's! There are natural pools to swim in near the harbour too. All in all a good choice to round off our two week holiday on the beautiful island of Sao Miguel.
