Brilliant week away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with Roberto for a week at the end of September. The house is amazing. beautiful views over the harbour at Villa Franco do Campo. Roberto is an excellent host and came and picked us up from the airport when our flight was delayed for 3 hours and even posted our spear guns back to us in the UK because we couldn't get them onto our return flight!

He gave us recommendations of places to visit and we had a great time exploring the island. Hot water springs at Furnas (Poça da Beija) and near Lago Fogo (Caldeira Velha) are definitely worth a visit. He also arranged a boat trip with Filipe (Azores Sea Adventures ) where we swam with wild dophins. Didn't see any whales thought but it was the wrong time of year. The tea plantation at Gorreana is a great place to visit for a few hours, free tea(!) and an in-depth experience into the workings of the factory.

The house was brilliant, exactly what we needed for the group. Swimming pool, washing machine, oven and hob. Five large double bedrooms and three bathrooms. We went running every morning to the harbour and yoga on the patio. Easy walk into Vila Franco do Campo which has some lovely restaurants overlooking the harbour and a small supermarket (although large one on the outskirts which is open on sundays).

Can't fault Roberto and his house. Will definitely look to visit again.

Absolutely Fabulous!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 stayed at the Villa from Jan. 10 - 24, 2015. This was the first time my husband had been back to his homeland in 44 years and what a wonderful way to enjoy our time! I can honestly say the accommodations were fantastic! The house is even more beautiful than the pictures. Everything is well maintained and extremely clean. The kitchen is well stocked with every dish and utensil you would need.

Roberto went out of his way to make sure everything was perfect for us. He picked us up from the airport and made a point of showing us the all the essentials on our way to the house. He even left us with a cell phone that we were able to use while we were there! If we had a question or needed directions he was there to help. The cleaning lady came in once a week and did an amazing job, leaving the house spotless! We also had fresh towels brought in twice a week. Everything was perfect.

The house is located very central to many beautiful sites. We ventured to Ribeira Grande, Furnace and Ponta Delgada and it only took 25 - 30 minutes to get any of these destinations. Highways were very good and well marked to make it easy to find our way around. It was only a 10 minute walk into the quaint town of Vila Franca do Compo where we found some very good food! The pizzeria by the ocean front was amazing. Our favorite was the Snack Bar Tasca do Traguita. Armando and his wife Felia made us feel right at home. Didn't matter what time of the evening we showed up, they were more than willing to open the kitchen and make us some great food!! Consumed a few pints of the local beer Especial there as well for a cost of .50 euros each!!!

All in all we had a wonderful holiday and will be returning. I would highly recommend this property and want to "Thank" Roberto for making this a memorable holiday.

Simply paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this dream villa for two weeks in July 2012. We absolutely loved our stay! We shared the villa with two other families, totalling 6 adults and 7 children. The place was very comfortable for all of us. Apart from mosquitos at this time of year and the fact that the windows and doors were not equipped with screens (the house does not have air conditioning either) everything was perfect.

The kitchen was well equipped and the house was beautifully and comfortably furnished. The best was the backyard with the enormous pool and the outdoor BBQ! And the view was absolutely fabulous!

Groceries and other amenities were nearby, but you preferably need a car to get around though. There is a water park two blocks away and the beach is literally 2 minutes away. If you feel adventurous, the island offers so many amazing attractions from natural pools, to hot springs and gardens.

Roberto was a real class act and very helpful (Thank you for being so accomodating!). I would recommend to anyone who wishes to visit this part of the island in style!

Beautiful modern oceanview escape

  • 4 of 5

Roberto and his beautiful home was very accommodating for our group of 8. The home was secure and central to all of the amenities/sights of the beautiful island of Sao Miguel. The town, within walking distance, Vila Franco do Campo was charming and had a great local atmosphere. The house itself had plenty of space for the 8 of us. We'd recommend it to anyone, and look forward to staying there again.

Dear Roberto

Thank you, we had such an amazing holiday full of adventures. The house was the perfect place for us to stay. Spacious, comfortable and every thing we needed. The views were stunning and we loved the pool and BBQ. Villa Franco was full of warm and welcoming people as was the rest of the island. We hope to see you in 2015.

The Wright Family.

Thank you Roberto!

  • 5 of 5

To start I would like to thank you Roberto from all of us .

Our flight was delayed 3 times ...we arrived around 11:30pm and worried that it would to late for a pick up...

Roberto was waiting for us with all smiles. He had arrange a vehicle be at the airport ,help us with our luggage and drove us to the villa . On our way he took the time to shows us where to by food and have breakfast the next morning. Once arrived a the spectacular villa ,even if it was already past 1:00am ,again he took the time and spent about one hour to show us around ,how everything worked , lighting ,pool etc...

We were all extremely pleased with his devotion and dedication to us and our needs.

The next morning when we woke up and saw the view ..breathtaking ,amazing...

The villa was as per the pictures and literature...It was comfortable that we felt at home right away...

With out any hesitation ,we would and will book our next trip to the Acores at the villa.

You have made my return to my home land , after 42 years ,a wonderful memory

for me and my friends and children.

You made us feel like we were family.

I can't thank you enough for all you have done for us.

I will see you in a few years.

Joe Costa

Azores S.Miguel Vila franca do campo.

Golf: The breathtaking landscape of the Azores is the perfect setting for the oldest course in the Archipelago, Furnas Golf Club. Famous Scottish architect McKenzie Ross designed the first 9 holes in 1936. The course was increased to 18 holes in 1986 by Cameron & Powell but it is impossible to distinguish the new from the old. A genuine test of golfing skills, the fairways are framed amid stands of majestic Japanese cedars while the greens are fiendishly undulating. The course is situated in one of the most beautiful parts of Sao Miguel Island, set above the Furnas Valley and close to beautiful Furnas Lake with its famous Caldeiras, 15 minutes of Vila franca do campo

unforgettable beauty. Opened in 1996, Batalha Golf Club consists of 27 holes set on a historic site. Built on volcanic rock, the layout was designed in harmony with the natural landscape and has spectacular, sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and the villages below.
