far away but close enough

  • 4 of 5

The property is charming old fashioned clean and functional if you are into modern then it is the opposite. Its seclusion its endearing quiteness in a village with spectacular scenery is the peace we were looking for .The property has all the basic amenities in a village that replicates typical old fashioned values warm people. You will need a car otherwise you cannot get anywhere but on a typical 5- 7 day stay you can see all it is not a beach holiday although there are beaches but you can simply stroll day to day or hike as you wish a walkers paradise.Weather is mixed never cold but the higher up the more risk of cloud . Dont forget it is a volcanic island easily accessible Iceland with warm temperatures but not hot and you can bathe in the volcanic pools.Food and drink cheap a real bonus eating out half the price of the UK basic food inexpensive -petrol slightly more expensive than the UK

Azore Ladie's Adventure 2016

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 2 other American female friends recently returned from our first amazing trip to the Azores! This was the second home we stayed at during our time on Sao Miguel, we stayed at two different areas of the island to make the most of our time. This home is everything that the pictures show and more! When we arrived Paulo (Owner) met us to go over the basics, he was extremely friendly and helpful during our entire stay. He provided some complimentary meat, cheese, and bread when we arrived and fresh bread was delivered every morning! We spent the majority of our time on the beautiful patio, even when it was raining we enjoyed the covered patio and outdoor cooking. The sleeping accommodations were perfect for 3 people, there are 3 beds. One full size bed downstairs and 2 beds upstairs in a loft (1 Full, 1 Single). We adored the town of Faial Da Terra, it is small, gorgeous, and friendly! There is only one market, one café, and one bar. We made most of our meals at the house so we could enjoy the patio. There was a Festa happening in town while we were there and everyone was very welcoming. One of our highlights for this trip was the hike up to the Salto do Prego waterfall, it is well worth the hike! The trail literally starts right in front of the house, the trail map is across the street. We were lucky, we went mid week and there was hardly anyone else on the trail. We noticed that on the weekends the trail became busier. The only tiny drawback to this location is that the roads getting to Faial Da Terra are very winding, taking longer than expected to get places. We would gladly return to this home in the future! Thanks again Paulo for sharing your beautiful home!

Gorgeous little 'yellow' house

  • 5 of 5

A beauty of a little house looking up the mountain and down to the sea.

Peaceful and private garden with an outdoor kitchen which we enjoyed that much.

Paolo welcomed us in the airport and came later with some local wine and food - just such a nice gesture.

The house was as magical as seen in the pictures and it has everything you need for a perfect relaxed stay on sao miguel.

We would like to recommend this casa and its owner with the highest ranking.

Kind regards,

Amazing little house on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

An amazing little house on this beautiful island. Everything you need is available in the house and especially the outdoor kitchen we loved.

Hospitality is an understatement looking at our arrival and the friendly Paolo picking us up from the airport. After a long travel an arriving late on Saturday night, we were prepared to have a short, sober evening and a limited breakfast the next morning. Paolo surprised us with a nice bottle of wine and cheese from the island and cookies and sweet bread for the next morning. Absolutely great! Thumbs up for this accommodation that we highly recommend visiting Sao Miguel.

Kind regards,
