within 3.0 km from the historic centre of Ponta Delgada.
This property is surrounded by some pineapple plantations and greenhouses
This flat is a fantastic base from where to explore Ponta Delgada and the rest of the island of Sao Miguel. There are many shops, supermarkets, cafes, bakeries and bars all within a 3 to 4 minute drive. The Arruda’s Pineapple plantation is just 5 minutes walk.
Its extraordinary location offers an easy access to all main attractions:
23 km from Sete Cidades Lake
21 km from Fogo Lake
39 km from Furnas Lake / Parque Terra Nostra
25 km from Gorreana Tea plantation
12 km from Santa Barbara Surfing spot
The famous beaches Praia da Milicias and Praia do Pópulo are less than 2 Km distance (15 minute walk away) and so is the natural pool Forno de Cal in Sao Roque ideal for some swimming in the pristine clear Azorean waters during the summer season
The “João Paulo II” Airport, is only 6 km away, just 10 min drive.
Alternatively, there is a bus that will bring you directly to the city historical centre. The Bus stop is only 4 mins walk from the flat. 1 way journey will cost aprox 2 euro/passenger. Buses stop aprox every half an hour from 8am until 7 pm.
A taxi from the flat to the city centre will cost you aprox 10€/single journey
A taxi between the airport and the flat will cost you aprox 15€/single journey
I strongly recommend to rent a car to explore all the major attractions and landmarks in the Island. In my opinion It's definitely the best way to explore the natural beauty of São Miguel Island.
This rental includes Fresh linens and towels
Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the apartment.
Free parking is available on the street outside
There are some guide books, tourist information and our Guest Manual providing information on the apartment, favorite spots in the Island & city centre attractions.
Pre-Arrival information will be sent to you before the commencement of your stay with directions & information on the apartment, parking & other local amenities.
I will meet you on arrival at the apartment & assist you with any aspects of your stay.
However, sometimes I do have to travel on business, which means on those dates a team of interns will assist you in all aspects you may need whether it is on your check-in, during your stay or even on the checkout.
Both me and my team will always make sure you will get assistance whenever needed!
