Vila Franca do Campo : "House of Days" - Would have loved to have spent many more dreamy days in this unique gem of a house in the perfect location for a truly relaxing holiday by the sea.
For you English people, the house of the friendly and helpful Herminio was a " Grand Designs "- dream home with vast high tech ( see out but not in ) glass frontage offering panoramic views of the ocean - nothing between you and the sea. Perfect serenity for you writers, artists or simply those needing total relaxation !
The house, on 3 stories boasts spotless facilities ( ladies and perhaps gents, you may need to take a hair dryer - although there may have been one added since our holiday in May ! ) and the upper terrace with barbecue is perfect .
A car is needed if you wish to venture further to visit the quaint coastal villages dotted around this picturesque island and the more ' holiday typical resort features' of the capital ' Ponta Delgada.'
Herminio will inform you of the superb local restaurants .
We hope to return to this idyllic holiday home soon and often!

Herminios apartment is a really well designed super modern space, extremely minimalist with polished concrete floors and white finishes everywhere. It was extremely clean,had a great shower and a location in Vila Franca that was second to none. Herminio was very welcoming and was very responsive when needed, the mid week housekeeping visit was also appreciated. A small suggestion that would really make this place top class would be the inclusion of a hair dryer and some storecupbord basics like salt, pepper a small amount of laundry powder etc...things you really don't want the hassle of buying on holidays,but otherwise perfect!
We had a great vacation and really enjoyed the friendliness of the local people, not to mentioned the wonderful landscapes all over the island. The property is in a very good condition, clean and functional. Cleaver details, sliding windows and electric curtains. Location is good, practical starting point to wisits both West, North or Eastern part of island. The owner is very friendly and will make sure everything is OK. Strongly recommend renting a car, so many places to explore on the island. A big car might be a bad idea if Your not used to narrow streets though.... Bar Caloura serves spectacularly good grilled fish food not that far away and OK snacks/drinks can be purchased in the popular cafeteria/Bar in the nearby Marina.
All the best for You Herminio
We spent ten amazing days in this property. The flat is very nice, very cleaned and comfortable. The view for the ocean and the little island is excellent. The owner, Herminio was very nice and helpful. The little city is close to the capital, but silent and very nice. There are restaurants, harbour, wale-watching, beach I recommand to everybody!

We arrived at this place 3 days ago and wish we would have booked one month instead of one week here. You don't really know how great a place is until after you have experienced it. This is one of the most favorite places I have stayed in Europe, if not in the entire world!
I sell real estate and have been doing so for over 20 years so I know a bit about construction. This place is not only gorgeous, it is well built and the perfect size for a couple or a couple with a child. I tend to work a lot while on "vacation" and the office space on the top floor is ideal or those who are not able to unplug while on vacation. The WIFI has been flawless and the sound of the ocean just a stones throw away just adds to the appeal of this place.
The bedroom is comfortable and the black out blinds are heaven sent for an insomniac like myself.
The kitchen is well equipped for basic cooking of just about anything. The Fridge and freezer are also ample sized.
But best of all is the covered patio on the 3rd level. It has a couple of comfortable chairs, a small table and a BBQ area if you want to grill some fresh fish. The view and gentle sound of the ocean adds to the serenity of this place.
Herminio is a wonderful person and he takes pride in making sure his "guests: are happy.
I look forward to my next trip to the Azores and I would stay here again without hesitation (we actually told him we weren't ever going to leave!).
Moito obrigada Herminio! We will be back!
We have stayed in that house 9 days in february 2015 and we can say that this house is just perfect for holidays in Sao Miguel.
First of all, the village of Vila Franca is nice, very well located in the Island, on the sunny south coast, offering an easy drive to Lagoa de Fuego, Furnas, or Ponta Delgada; but the village is nice by itself, with all facilities, nice little places, a lovely and clean sand beach, a typical "marina" with fisher boats, all that accessible on walking distance from the house. Kind atmopshere and relationships with people too, which make your stay really comfortable.
Secondly, this house has been newly renovated and therefore offers all recent comfort that you can hope : wi-fi, kitchen well furnished with recent kichenware, stove, oven, and so on. Efficient heating and clim. The view is just amazing, right in front of the sea, with no road traffic in between you and the sea. It is so pleasant to have such a view and a quiet and luminous house, you would like to stay there for weeks. You just have to be careful with kids in the stairs.
Thirdly, Herminio, the rental owner was very helpful.
Finally, it was as a very good choice for us and we would definetely recommend it !
Besides enjoying the sound of the sea in any area of the house, 'Vila Franca do Campo' you can also visit the potteries (one of them 10 meters from the house), the churches, the museum, the viewpoint of Senhora da Paz, or simply stroll the streets of the Village. Enjoy our cuisine in our restaurants. Go see the dolphins and whales and stroll sailing. 'Vila Franca do Campo' is the Regional county with more beaches. To get here from the airport, take the fast lane towards Lagoa ....... Vila Franca do Campo.
