Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

The owner very kindly met us at the airport even though it was late. The cottage was spotless and some fruit, tea and bottled water left for us to use. Loved the little garden with a gazebo, so even if it was damp we could sit outside. It is billed as rustic and this is true. The staircase is steep and the treads narrow. Cooking is two hot plates, a microwave cooker and kettle, which is adequate for a week. There is a large fridge/freezer. I do think a new mattress and pillows are needed on the bed, which we found rather uncomfortable.

Property with a lot of character, but a little basic

  • 3 of 5

These are owners with good hospitality: we got beautiful local products as a welcome gift. Beautiful, little house, but I recommend it for people without children because of the steep stairs, as there is no toilet upstairs. Everything you need is present in the house, but one must state that the kitchen is a little basic and the bathroom a little small for more than 2 people. So if these things don't bother you, this is a very unique property with lots of character and charm.

Original and cosy

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Leonor and Luis, are a lovely couple! On our arrival they offered us several Azorian specialities. The house is in walking distance from a very nice beach. For us, a family with two children (8+10), this beach house was perfect. Little, simple, rustic and cosy. We had quiet often in the evenings a bbq in the nice patio. The location is quiet good: By car Furnas with its thermal sources is close, as well as Ilheu da Villa Franca, a crater island in which you can actually swim. Or you head to the other side of the island to visit the tea plantations. And if you don't want to take the car: the hiking track to the Lagoa do Fogo just starts in front of the house! Or you just spend a day on the nice beach Praia de Agua de Alto (nice beach bar with good fish!). We really liked it there and we recommend this house to travellers who like an original, portuguese experience.

Maison charmante qui associe bien le rustique authentique et un confort essentiel.

  • 4 of 5

Séjour très agréable malgré une météo capricieuse en raison de la période peut-être .

Cette maison est idéalement située pour randonner dans des endroits superbes , à la beauté préservée surtout grâce à la vigilance des Açoriens .

Ils aiment leur Ile qu' ils nous laissent découvrir avec plaisir .

L' accueil est chaleureux, naturel .Nous avons bien apprécié le premier contact avec Mme et Mr Alvès que nous aurons plaisir à revoir lors d' un prochain séjour .

Merci à eux qui ont collaboré à la réussite de ce séjour .
