Glad we selected this gem!

  • 5 of 5

Cristina et José greeted us warmly at the airport to give us instructions and directions to the house.

We rented a vehicle to visit the island for our 6 days trip. The home is approximately 45-60 minutes from PDL and it wasn't a problem at all to get there (the free express way from the north made the commute easy). The home is very clean, comfortable, well maintained, quiet, spacious for the 4 of us and offers everything you can expect. We were overwhelmed by the several local treats given to us to enjoy by Cristina et José.

We couldn't expect any better! We were so glad that we made the choice to stay in this beautiful property. We will certainly hope to come back!

Again thank you Cristina and Jose for kindness and giving us the opportunity to stay in your beautiful home.

A house of character in a lovely part of the island

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in a house owned by a very friendly and hospital family. Their generosity included a a table full of Azorean food, wine and liqueurs on our arrival and an Azorean meal prepared and presented to us on our last night.

The house was very clean, extremely well equipped and in a lovely location. The views out to the Atlantic Ocean from the back of the house and the terrace were stunning and the ease with which we could travel around the beautiful island of Sao Miguel, thanks to a very good road network, helped make the whole holiday a very memorable one.

Go for it. It is very great! Promise.

  • 5 of 5

We felt us very welcome since the first second. The house is very clean and comfortable. Cristina (the doughter) creates us an amazing table with typical sweets, fruits and cheese (many thanks for that).

The last evening we received a great gift from Cristina (but we dont tell more here ; -)

The view and the location are very genius. Easy drive to the casa cheia, highway and the first sightseeing.

Un sitio magnifico para pasar unos días disfrutando de la naturaleza y descansando. La casa es muy acogedora y cómoda de vivir, y muy bien comunicada con el resto de la isla. José Monteiro y su familia fueron realmente encantadores, pendientes de todos los detalles para hacer la estancia inolvidable.

Magnifique maison avec vue sur l’océan …

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons tous été enchantés par notre séjour à la Casa Do Riacho du 03 au 15 août 2016, maison idéale pour quatre personnes.

Jamais nous n’avions été accueillis de telle manière. Cristina et José sont justes adorables.

Ils nous attendaient à l’aéroport, ont pris en charge une de nos valise car notre voiture de location était trop petite, puis direction Nordeste où une surprise nous attendait à l’arrivée …

La maison est en tout point conforme aux photos, pour plus de détails vous pouvez aller sur le site


La maison est très propre et très bien équipée et Cristina a pensé aux moindres détails (dans la salle de bain brosses à dents neuves, shampoing, bain moussant …)

Le jardin est très agréable (potager à disposition) et nous prenions le plus possible nos repas à l’extérieur avec la vue sur l’océan c’est juste magnifique.

Dans le village de Lomba da Fazenda il y a plusieurs petits commerces dont un en face de la maison. Les environs sont plaisants et il est possible de se baigner à Nordeste. Un joli sentier de randonnée (PRC 31 SMI - 7,5 kms en boucle) part du village.

Au cours du séjour Cristina et José nous ont préparé un repas typique des Açores un vrai régal.

Le jour du départ, ils nous ont aussi raccompagnés à l’aéroport et grâce à José nous n’avons pas eu à payer de coût supplémentaire pour notre voiture de location qui avait été abimée sur un parking.

Nous ne serions que trop vous recommander cette adresse pour l’extrême gentillesse et serviabilité de Cristina et José et l’environnement très reposant de la Casa Do Riacho.

casa bella

  • 4 of 5

La casa è molto bella curata nell'arredamento e rispecchia la descrizione. le camere da letto (3) matrimoniali, al primo piano, sono un po piccole ma confortevoli.

Al piano terra un gran soggiorno ed una cucina funzionale tutta raccolta dove non mancava niente, lavatrice funzionante. Un Bagno grande con vasca e parete doccia.Tutto molto pulito la biancheria da bagno e da letto. nel bagno anche shampoo e bagno schiuma. All'esterno un bel cortile con un grande ombrellone, tavolini e sedie, un barbecue che abbiamo usato, ed un orto che Josè ci ha messo a disposizione per ciò che ci serviva. Abbiamo sempre mangiato fuori al cortile, al mattino a colazione si gode del sole che esce dal mare riflette sullo stesso ed emana una luce abbagliante, uno spettacolo. Cristina e Josè sono stati gentilissimi e molto disponibili, discreti e mai invadenti, sono stati bravissimi, ci hanno accolto con un vassoio di prodotti tipici dell'isola e ci hanno salutati con un gustosissimo ananas. consiglio di visitare le piantagioni ed acquistarne uno.

il centro piu vicino a 2 km. Nordeste, non ce molto, l'essenziale...di fronte alla casa cè un genere alimentare che vende un po di tutto anche le sigarette, a 200 mt. cè un pub, dove però non siamo mai andati, girando l'isola tutto il giorno la sera eravamo stanchi, ma la sera che siamo arrivati ci hanno aiutato a trovare la casa.
