Farm Living

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent three nights in this farmhouse during July 2016. Overall, it was fun and very different than we are used to. There are chickens, turkeys, hens, roosters, ducks, etc. outside. The owner, Hugo visits each day at dusk to feed them and take care of them and makes sure that everything is well. He leaves a cellphone in the residence so that you can call him if there is a problem. Now, about the place. This is a LARGE house. We found it alittle musty but limited ourselves to a small section of the house so that we could stay organized and utilize the one A/C Unit located in the kitchen that seemed to cool that area of the house adequately. The home comes with an electrically operated gate to the driveway which allowed easy access to the car when coming and going. As far as the location of the house, we found it to provide us with an authentic sense of Azorean culture. There is a cattle farm across the street and we could watch the daily work go on from the front terrace in the morning and late afternoon. There is a convenience store within a 5 minute walk from the home. We were able to find a very inviting local restaurant, " O'Pedro's" only a 5 minute drive away and we ate there every night. We also found ourselves taking advantage of the Natural Pools of Quatro Riberias that were also only a 5 minute drive away. The house is centrally located on the North coast and easy to find. Overall, we were satisfied with our stay here and would recommend it to others. We also found the rental price to be very affordable. We are giving this five stars based on the idea that we feel we got what we paid for if not more, and certainly will never forget the fun of living in this unique farm house for a few days.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We felt very welcome when we arrived at the house: it was clean and there was a basket with cheese, jam and bread etc. The house is great and the owners were polite and very friendly, solving any problem there was (broken lamp). We got eggs from the chickens in the backyard. We enjoyed our stay for five days very much in a beatiful Terceira, with its own habits. We especially liked the Imperios and the natural swimmingpools nearby.

A taste of village life close to amazing ocean pools.

  • 5 of 5

Quinta Rico provides a charming and comfortable island experience, modern convenience with a farmhouse feel, down to country decor and handmade quilts. Hugo greeted us graciously on arrival, with farm eggs and bread and milk in the fridge. The house is on the "main" road that runs around the island but in a very quiet village within a few minutes walk to beautiful ocean pools for swimming, with a small local market for basics. The only sound besides the occasional passing traffic is roosters crowing, birds singing and the village dogs. A spacious kitchen and table made for memorable meal times.

It is a beautiful half hour drive across the island into Angra, and feels like a retreat to return to the quiet pace of the village with views of the sun setting over the ocean after a day out sightseeing. A very relaxing vacation. Thank you for sharing a piece of Azorean paradise!

Not what we expected

  • 2 of 5

The bathroom next to the laundry area smelled like a cesspool. We had to keep the door shut, because the whole house would reek of feces. There were ants and centipedes everywhere. We were under the impression that we would have fresh eggs, but the landlord told us we could only have eggs the first day. She also 'popped' in to tell us not to drink too much?! We had a bottle of wine on the table from the wine museum! Wouldn't rent from them again.

Owner's Response: How you all can notice our house lies perfectly fused in the characteristic nature of our islands, despite our efforts is not always possible to prevent the entry of small insects, in case of extreme closeness to nature, not something that is strange to us. Every day we feed our chickens and collect their eggs, which are then sold to help pay the costs of feeding them. Usually as a compliment we dispense some of the eggs from our chickens to our guests. It was only called attention because more than half of our eggs were disappearing and we could not fulfill our commitments. We live on a small island where people are very warm, very festive, like to have fun and sometimes to drink a little. The comment regarding the drinking was a joke, it’s a pity that has not been considered as such, which we apologize. Although many times we talked with the guests and asked if everything was to their liking, were never mentioned any problems or situations of their displeasure. The situation of the bathroom was unexpected but quickly resolved. Despite all our efforts to the satisfaction of our guests, not always pleasant and correct feedback is given. We ask that any situation or request is quickly exposed so that we can best serve.

Casa Linda das 4 Ribeiras

  • 5 of 5

Ter um momento de descanso e descontracção depois de trabalhar é algo importante para repor as energias, principalmente numa bela casa com tudo o necessário para quem se desloca de sua própria habitação.

Agradeço,

ao Hugo Rico pela sua disponibilidade em nos explicar tradições e costume do seu povo, a sua mãe que por motivo do atraso do nosso voo, ficou a espera para fazer a cortesia da casa.

Adoramos a vossa ilha, e, vocês pessoas simpáticas e afáveis.

Aceitem os nossos agradecimentos pela vossa presença e pela maravilhosa oferta.

Bem haja
