lovely house with a beautiful garden

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in Casa do Canto.

It is a lovely, spacey house with a beautiful garden.

The house is decorated in a nice style. Everything you need is there.

Sergio and Maria are very nice people, and very concerned about their guests.

We really enjoyed our stay at Candelaria, and we will sure come back again

Perfect family-place

  • 5 of 5

San Miquel is one of the most beautiful places in the world. We had an unforgettable time. Our stay at Casa do Canto was key.

The villa was more comfortable that we expected. It was big and cosy, and the garden was tremendous.

Our three children liked to go out with us (whale watching, swimming in the warm water pools, enjoying the flowers on the island, the amazing views wherever you go), but they wanted to go back to the house soon to play soccer or take a swim. They felt at home, very important for our youngest son who felt homesick for the first two days but thankfully regarded Casa do Canto more and more as the place he wanted to be.

Every morning fresh bread, delivered by the local bakery, if you place your order in a plastic bag, attached to the fence. Every day fishermen come by to offer you freshly caught fish.

The customer service has been excellent. The owners surprised us with delicious Portugese pastry. When we had a question, there was immediate response and help.

Great Honeymoon Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Casa do Conto for our 10-day honeymoon! We loved the house and the great views! We enjoyed lunches out while exploring and cooking dinner at the house. The nearby market for groceries and daily bread deliveries were very convenient!

We rented a car at the airport and Sergio and Maria provided very easy to follow directions to the house!

Great place.

  • 5 of 5

We lived in this place two weeks. Big and nice house. It is clear and sunny. Big rooms, hot water, kitchen with everything you need, spacious lounge, grill, pool. Very quiet place, without the urban bustle.

The island is beautifull, good place for tracking and walking.

Hot springs, black sandy beaches, beautiful views, forest - you will not regret visiting this place. There is no mosquitoes.

Sergio and Maria are very welcoming, they knows everything about the island and interesting places.

Great family home with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 nights at Caso do Canto and it had everything we needed. It was very clean with plenty of bedding and towels for our family of 7. The children loved sleeping upstairs in the big room and getting the fresh bread off the gate each morning. The bedrooms were all spacious and clean. The portable heaters were great to take the damp chill out. The garden is beautiful - perfect for grilling food and playing cards at the table. The pool was still a bit cold to enjoy but 2 of us were able to go in briefly. Having a van to drive was wonderful and we used it to see the entire island. Sergio and Maria are very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. We were very appreciative of the bread/fruits they stocked the kitchen with upon our arrival. The buggy tour of Sete Cidades is a favorite memory for the kids and they are already talking about "next time". Caso do Canto is a quiet, peaceful home and we would recommend it
