So you will not be disappointed by coming here. The house has all the amenities, spacious rooms, a large wooded garden well maintained. A very good situation that allows hiking, swimming and rest. A very very nice place.

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.
