This was my first vacation to the Azores and I wanted to make sure it would be relaxing and memorable. We got in on July 3rd and as soon as the house was cleaned we went in and were pleasantly surprised. It was clean and well maintained and had many antiques. I got a sense of history there, the beautiful stone walls and doorways as well as modern features like the dishwasher and lovely master bath with a wonderful jacuzzi. The view from the master bath is breathtaking! I think the thing that made our stay the best was the kindness and generosity of Manuel and Fernanda. They constantly brought over home made things for us to try, fresh bread, sugar cane Manuel had picked from his own garden, and Fernanda even made my wife and daughter ear rings to remember them by. I can't say enough about this place and our time there, I can only describe it as, "A hug for the soul".
We enjoyed our stay at Quinta dos Afectos immensely, the owners Manuel and his lovely wife Fernanda are brilliant hosts, welcoming, friendly and helpful but also respectful of guests privacy.
The estate is very large and enjoyable, we loved having such a large and landscaped garden to sunbathe in, there is even a vegetable garden we were invited to pick some delicious greens from!
Personally I loved cooking in the huge kitchen, which is very well equipped, as is the rest of the house. A particularly nice touch is the basket with a choice of soft plaids next to the fireplace, very nice for cozy evenings indoors, thank you Fernanda!
The whole indoors space is tastefully decorated yet simple, the master bedroom is enormous, as is the upstairs bathroom. We enjoyed the quality bedding materials and the incredible views from the large bedroom and bathroom.
We invited some family to stay with us on this trip; they stayed in the downstairs bedrooms and enjoyed them a lot, the house is very large and has a great layout both for families and groups of friends.
We really didn't have any complaints at all, the place is great, the view beautiful, the hosts lovely, Manuel even got us a great deal on the car rental! Only one criticism: it's hard to book, because it is so often occupied!
We chose this as our second stop in our 10day trip in Sao Miguel after staying in a beachfront house in Moinhos. We chose this place mainly for our kids who love animals. We weren't disappointed. The kids absolutely enjoyed the animals. We went in December and the heaters and towel warmers were a blessing. The natural fireplace in the living room, the full size kitchen, the spacious bedrooms were all a plus.
About the place: It is located about 1/2 hr away from Ponta Delgada near Fenais da Luz in residential areas. There are grocery stores nearby (Spar) and Sol Mar supermarket where you get everything under the sol(!). Even though there is no direct beachview, we had no complaints since the grounds are well manicured and it was a different experience altogether. Mosteiros and and Sete Cidades are nearby.
Manuel was very helpful and answered all emails before the trip. Directions to the place was fairly easy.
Overall, a nice experience.
We stayed at Manuel's classily remodel home for few days in December. Manuel was very friendly and helpful with our need and request during our stay. The property shown just like the pictures, the rooms are clean, spacious and nicely furnished with comfortable beds, millions dollars ocean view from the master bedroom windows. A multi levels garden and parking spaces are found next to the house. The property is located in the rural countryside where you can enjoy the serenity and nature. If you want to explore the option of the countryside with style, this is the choice!
We were nervous when driving on the curly, narrow and unfamiliar streets. But Manuel was very kind to show us the directions and signs. Since driving is not an option in this location, we give 4 stars.
A group of us stayed for about a week on Sao Miguel and it was an unforgettable experience. The island is very unspoiled and the people are some of the nicest I've encountered on earth. This includes Manuel the property owner who went above and beyond to make sure we had the best possible vacation. His years of experience in the hotel industry definitely shows as he certainly knows how to take care of guests. The property is very well kept and has everything you could need. Large bedrooms (the master has a great view of the ocean), a comfortable living room and great kitchen.
The location is outside of town, but that makes even more lovely as its peaceful and very easy to get anywhere on the island with a car anyway. I'd recommend Sao Miguel to anyone who loves nature and is looking for a peaceful vacation. I'd recommend Quinta dos Afectos to anyone coming to the island who doesn't mind being a little outside of town.
We visited SAO MIGUEL in January 2014. This Island is still unspoiled by mass tourism and it is obvious almost everywhere that nature still matters here. There are plenty of remarkable place to see, explore and experience.(We should have spend a month there)
The two of us rented this 300 year old spacious house which was lovingly restored with great attentions given to details by the owners Manuel and Fernanda who by the way were perfect hosts to us. We enjoyed the top quality beds and the extra large bathrooms with perfectly functioning high-end fixtures, and all the amenities that can be found in a 5 star hotel.
The Gardens are beautiful even in January. We also enjoyed the hosts extended cat family and hope they are all well again.
We recommend this property to anyone who is looking for piece and quiet, lot of space in an natural clean environment.
