Casa de Agua D' Alto is a cottage house that perfectly combines the ancient with the modern. Surrounded by the nature, but still close to the town of Vila Franca do Campo, the house is ideal for some relaxing and enjoyable holidays.
  • It was very nice to stay at Casa de Agua D'Alto. It was very easy to communicate with the hosts and everything was ready for us upon arrival. The house is spacious and was very comfortable even in winter. It is nicely positioned on Sao Miguel island - easy drive to all attractions. Minor issues were quickly dealt with. Would definitely recommend this house.

  • Great place to experience the Azores! We would go back in a minute. Loved the historical feel of the home and view was wonderful from the living room! Centrally located and close to necessities! Thanks again Margarida and Rui!

  • We had a really great time: - The house is awesome and spacious - Beautiful view from the living area - Smooth communication and check-in - And many other things one need to see for oneself One practical remark: you will need a car to get there and here.

  • I stayed in this beautiful house around Easter 2016, and it turned out to be one of the most loveliest places anyone could imagine to stay when visiting the Azores. It is very well maintained, its location close to Ponta Delgada while still having the character of a very calm hideaway makes it a perfect choice as home base. The house is very spacious, everything needed is already waiting for you when entering the house (including a great welcome basket). The highlight is for sure the living room surrounded by glass walls allowing to see the sea and the sun setting at evening. 5 out of 5 stars. I would recommend this to any party or family.

  • The view from the house is absolutely spectacular and it was wonderful to see the gorgeous surroundings in all phases of day/night and in variable weather. The location of the house is also fantastic, being located within 5 minutes of a grocery store (driving) and within half hour drive to many of the highlights of the island. That said, it is hard to find the house, so plan ahead (the use of a paper map rather than the GPS was key). If I could improve anything, it would be to have the queen bed not be so hard (consider a foam topper?) and the addition of a dryer (or simply plan ahead to bring extra clothes). Since it rained many times during our trip, and it was persistently humid, our clothes did not dry after being washed for approximately 3 - 4 days.

  • We (family of four) had a wonderful time at Casa de Água d'Alto. The house is beautiful, very cosy, well equipped and a great peaceful view and very calm surroundings. The location is great, it takes 20 minutes to reach Furnas, Lagoa do Fogo or Ponta Delgada. The host made us feel at home, very thoughtful and sharing a lot of hints. The island is a true garden, very inspiring and pristine landscape. A true jewel.

    Filipe2016-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • Rui, Maragreta's father gave us detailed instructions how to get to the house. This truely is necessary and very helpful. The house with its beautiful and big living room is amazing! Good conditions, everything as shown on the pictures. They even surprised us with some fresh food and fruit upon our arrival late in the evening. If anything doesnt work the way it should, Rui is answering immediately and fixing it the same day! Drive by car to Ponta Delgada in 25 minutes. Big food store in Vila Franca do Campo, 5 Minutes drive away. We truly recomment it and hope to be back sometimes! Great hosts, great house and beautiful country!

  • This property is incredible. The views from the cube are outstanding....sitting in there with lights low watching the moon over the Atlantic, wow! I did not want to leave. There are some lovely original features too....really rustic kitchen but nice modern bathroom with lovely shower. Everything we needed. We had a toddler too and were given a really comfortable travel cot. Town was nearby with a pretty little harbour, and nice beaches. Absolutely recommend this place, really impressive!

  • We had an amazing stay at Cristina’s lovely apartment - it was in such beautiful surroundings, we loved the huge, private outdoor space which was perfect for relaxing and we had a great BBQ on the grill one night! The sea pool is just stunning, to have that just a few minutes walk away was really special. (Take goggles/snorkel so you can see all the fish!) The apartment has a rustic villa feel and it was very comfortable - we particularly liked the open living/kitchen space which had everything we needed to cook meals. Cristina was very helpful and very quick with her responses, even offering to do our laundry. She also has a lovely, friendly dog who would pop round to say hello! Cristina recommended us a great rental car company - McRentACar - who were brilliant and we would highly recommend - you definitely need a car to best explore the Island. The apartment is in a great location to explore the island and I’d highly recommend it to everyone!

    Linsey2018-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • we stayed with our baby son at casa araucaria ! cristina was a perfect host and helped us a lot (giving us helpful informations about everything, doing our laundry, giving us delicious self-made orange jam!). the house is very nice situated, along the coastline, near to the town of vila franca with a very nice view on the island of vila franca. we enjoyed the quiet area and the nice garden. our son loved to play with the dog - tigero. we highly recommend staying in quinta das amoreiras ! it was a real pleasure to meet Cristina! Thanks for everything!

    Birgit&Bernhard2014-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • This guesthouse has an amazing ocean view a short walk away with volcanic rock along the coastline. A great place to relax and get away! Cristina was very helpful and easy to get a hold of - with great suggestions for local restaurants!

    Jenessa2018-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Christina is a very nice host. The place is situated in the beautiful coastal area. The little house has everything you need, no luxury but the view is stunning. Sitting outside makes you forget time. Never met such a friendly dog, that watches the property. The saltwater pool is just perfect.

    Anne2015-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Really cool place! It is in its own private complex and in a great central location on the island so day trips to any location are not a bad drive. Cristina was very helpful and responsive. The coastal pool was fun to experience! A couple tips: 1) the entrance to the pool is at the bottom right corner of the cornfield near the treeline as you’re looking towards the coast. 2) Make sure to visit the pool at both high tide and low tide because its character changes.

    Josiah2018-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • Cristina was an awesome host! So much so that we extended our stay, hence the two reviews. This is what I said in the last one and I stick by it: She was very flexible with a check-in time and met us to show us all the amenities (including an adorable kitchen and GORGEOUS ocean pool). She has a great dog, Tigero, who she offered to keep tied up if we weren't dog people--but we were and we looked forward to his greeting every night. An absolutely beautiful and very Azorean place to stay. Highly recommend. *Note: Cristina's place is about a 7-minute drive east of Vila Franca do Campo.

    Courtney2013-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • I found Cristina's place to be clean, cozy, great for a peaceful and quit get away.

    frank2017-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed only one night at Christina's bungalow but it was so wonderful! The place is very warm and cozy, nice cast iron fireplace, kitchen space, living room with tv, bedroom and very nice bedroom. The location is unbelievable -- definitely not central and urban but I don't think that's what one should seek in the Azores -- but RIGHT on the sea coast. We were there in a off season but I can just imagine the natural sea pool on the property and relaxing there during the summer time months and enjoying the sunset. A perfect place to relax with a most warm and welcoming host!!

    Tyson2017-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at the CK Seaside Guesthouse! It is truly an incredible place with extraordinary views, a serene atmosphere, and everything you could need. Most importantly, Eleni and her lovely family were the most gracious hosts we could have asked for. Eleni is so warm and welcoming it made us appreciate our stay there that much more.

  • This is a truly magical location. The view is breathtaking, its very private. The outdoor space in incredible and the glass living room makes you feel like you are connected with nature. The Kitchen is great, it has everything you need to whip up a meal. Eleni is a amazing, she stocked the fridge with supplies and even baked us a cake! It is a romantic, super relaxing location and alternative to a busy impersonal hotel. It's infinity pool is amazing and they even have a small greek chapel on the property.

    Vila Franca Do Campo, Açores, Portugal

    O meu espaço fica no do centro de Vila Franca do Campo, a 5 minutos a pé de praias, zonas comerciais, restaurantes, arte e cultura. Vai adorar o meu espaço por causa das vistas, o sossego e o aconchego. O espaço é bom para casais e aventuras individuais. My place is in the center of Vila Franca do Campo, a 5 minute walk away from beaches, supermakets, restaurants, and museum. Nice view, quiet place, and confortable. It's a good place for couples or individuals.
    É no Ilhéu de Vila Franca do Campo que se realiza a etapa do Red Bull Cliff Diving em Portugal. It is in the Vila Franca do Campo Islet that we have the Portuguese round of Red Bull Cliff Diving.
  • Recommend 100%, very central, and beautiful view

    Dorothee & Tiago2017-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is well equipped studio in a FANTASTIC location. It's very clean, has everything you need in a compact space and offers good value for money. We stayed 4 nights had Paolo and Karen were excellent hosts. The view of the Island was so cool, as was falling asleep to sound of the ocean. We'd recommend it.

    Jo2017-04-29T00:00:00Z
  • Top location, amazing patio to have meals looking and listen to the sea, clean, big bathroom, every thing you need to a perfect stay, highly recommended, 5 star

    Pedro2017-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Ocean lapping at my feet, islet view, fire pit, clean white space, large bathroom with hot shower and a functional kitchen are a few of my favorite things while staying here. Karen and Paola were very kind.

    tamara2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • This Place is the best value of any place we have stayed on Sao Miguel. The view is spectacular and we slept incredibly well to the sound of the ocean every night. If you hear a strange, almost frog like noise at night, they are Corys Shearwaters (a large shorebird), we had a good time watching them fly around at night. The house is small but perfect for two and had everything we needed. Paulo even left is some fresh bread and fruit. We had a small issue checking in (only because I didn't have service and couldn't see the perfect directions Paulo had sent) but other than that absolutely no issues. He even let us stay a additional night when our travel plans changed. Highly recommended!

    Samantha2018-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • Paulo is a very hospitable dear person. He is open to all questions and very helpful. The accommodation is clean and a dream right on the ocean.

    Jörg2017-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • If you look for luxury, Paulos place won't be right for you. If you like the simplicity and you don't mind that it's small it will be the perfect place for you. I think Paulo and his wife did a great job fitting everything necessary in this small room. Thank you very much for having us. For you too all the best

    Maria2017-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • The best view in the world and the stars are incredible. Great host. Very central in terms of getting to everywhere on th island. Would go again in a heartbeat.

  • We had a wonderful stay. The house is beautifully decorated, well located and had everything necessary. Despite some "technical" difficulties we had, Maria was a great host an help us immediately. We would for sure recommend this house, and we would gladly return!

    Jose2016-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • This has to be one of the best Airbnbs we have stayed in! Maria was very kind, helpful and had great communication. Her staff was very friendly and helpful as well. They went above and beyond. We were greeted with her famous homemade soup, jams, and chocolate cake. The airbnb has everything you need for a long stay and is new, modern and clean! The location is great. Franca do Campo is central on the island and is a great spot to explore everywhere, with a car. Wonderful ocean view from the patio. Perfect way to start the day! Thank you!

    Brodie2017-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • This was the best experience I have had with AirBnB and far exceeded my expectations!! Maria was a delightful host who made sure that I had everything I needed and more. No detail was overlooked! Maria had prepared food for me, and included many other provisions. She was in contact to check in daily, which I appreciated! The apartment is located in a beautiful area of the island and very convenient for bus transportation to Furnas and Ponta Delgada! I wish I could go back already! Thank you, Maria!!!

    Stephanie2016-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice host and great accommodation!

    Barbara2018-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic place to stay! We booked it as home base for our driving trips a around the island, and just like the other reviews, it did not disappoint. Not only is it a cute and comfortable place to rest and clean up, it has a full kitchen with everything you need to prep meals and boasts terrific views of the ocean. Maria is so generous: she had soup waiting for us as well as a stocked fridge! There's a supermarket within walking distance and restaurants close by. She recommended some other restaurants around the island that were perfect as well. Honestly, we will recommend Casa Da Quinta to everyone we know. Stay here!

    Danielle2018-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect apartment in the perfect place! They is everything to make you feel good, a garden to take the breakfast in front of the sea, a very cosy room with a lot of candles and food left by the kind Maria, an amazing italian shower all new. The host was very nice and helpful when we were lost. Thanks for these amazing days.

    Pierre2015-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • The best air bnb I have ever been! Maria is so friendly. The apartment is full of nice details that makes you feel like youre just at home. Also amazing that Maria filled up the fritch with lokal food and drinks :)

    Fabian2018-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • Maria is an incredible hostess. A later arrival greeted us with home made soup on the stove, fresh bread, a bottle of wine and some home made goodies. We stayed in the smaller house which is very cute, well stocked and extremely clean. Wonderful shower. Ample parking, close to shopping and restaurants. Maria checked in on us a couple of times to ensure that everything was ok. We will definitely be back. Obrigado.

    Vila Franca do Campo was, during the first century of settlement, the most important village of São Miguel island. The main official institutions, such as the Customs, and the captain Gonçalo Vaz Botelho, lives there. In fact, it was named the "first capital of São Miguel". However, that condition ended during the night of October 21 to 22, of 1522, when a violent earthquake caused a huge landslide of the slopes overlooking the village, causing a lahar that submerged most of the village.
  • A very nice apartment, full of comforts, perfect clean and with a kind hospitality. Near the oceans and the shops

    Cecilia2018-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! We loved the location and how large the apartment was.

    Whitly2018-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. The location was perfect, since there was a grocery store right next to us and the drive to Ponta Delgada was short. Also, there was everything we needed during our stay. Only negative thing in the apartment was a funny smell, but if the host fixes that, this apartment would be just great.

    Viivi2018-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place to stay. Supermarket 20m away from the entrance. The building is located close to the highway which makes travelling in Sao Miguel very fast and easy. Flat is very big and sunny with two great terraces! Welcome pack with the basket filled with local food was amazing!

    Marcin2017-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome apartment! Really spacious, nice and clean. Has a very nice balcony on both sides and a good location. Would recommend it to every one. The host is very nice and replies quickly. We forgot a tshirt and he was able to send it back for us!

    Anouk2017-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Relatively new and well furnished apartment with a nice balcony located in a residential area of Villa Franco. We found it a great spot to explore the Island from via car. It’s about a 5 min walk down to the beach/ harbour as well. Great check in. Wifi worked great and all amenities as well.

    Rory2018-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at the sky appartment. Well located to start from to travel the island. The appartment itself was very clean and neat. Welcome basket at our arrival. Two nice terraces where you can see the sea or the mountains behind. Not the most charming area but calm and safe. Parking lot for our rented car. Modern lift. Big SolMar supermarket just around the corner.

    Raphaelle2017-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very professional but friendly host. The apartment was in really good conditions. The terraces are quite nice.

    CK is a modern guest house located in Vila Franca do Campo 10 minutes from the center of the Vila by foot, where you can find restaurants, a local fresh market and the supermarket. We are situated only 15 minutes by foot from the main beach.
  • We could not imagine that the CK seaside loft was as beautiful as in the pictures, but it was all that and then some!! The location is wonderful - walkers can walk into the Franca Do Capo Village, which is lovely to visit with lots to see and water adventures if desired. Even before we arrived we communicated often with Eleni who responded promptly and shared many suggestions for things to see and do during our visit. Upon our arrival Eleni greeted us and showed us all the amenities, which included a resort-type property, the spotless and very comfortable loft, and a refrigerator stocked with fruit, yogurt, and a homemade chocolate cake. We immensely enjoyed meeting Eleni and George, and look forward to getting back to Fanca Do Capo in the future and again staying at the loft.

    Mark2018-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our time at Elenis home! It’s a great space, very clean, well decorated, beautiful setting and Eleni is an amazing host full of great recommendations! It’s also in a great central location, we were able to get to most places on the island in less than 30 minutes. This has been our favorite Airbnb so far! We can’t wait to come back to the Açores!

    Sarah2018-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place! Super relaxing! We highly recommend staying here. It’s close enough to restaurants and sightseeing, but far enough away where you get to enjoy the scenery in peace and quiet by the pool! Eleni was very easy to communicate with and provided several excellent recommendations during our stay. She also had the fridge stocked with some groceries which was nice after a long day of travel. We can’t wait to refer our friends!

    Molly2018-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first time using AirBnB and I fear that we have now set the bar so high, it will never be reached again! Eleni, your home was EXCEPTIONAL! It was presented online accurately. The condition of our loft was much better than we expected. She even supplied us with some fresh groceries for a light breakfast or snack! The linen was very good quality, the communication was perfect and the hospitality cannot be compared! This property was exceptionally beautiful and we have already considered it to the highlight of our vacation! Thank you for caring for us as if we were life-long friends and for sharing your property with us!!

    Lorrie2017-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Best Airbnb stay! She made us a chocolate cake!! We had a well stocked kitchen, a STUNNING view and the location is easy to drive to/from any part of the island. She is a wonderful host by nature, very helpful and a great conversationalist. Her tips helped our the island experience go from good to great. If we plan another trip here I will definitely come back here. Cheers!!

  • amazing place to stay! I highly recommend. Eleni and her husband were the best hosts! the view was incredible and the loft was spacious and clean. she gave us some great advice on things to do and to see! loved it! we had the best time!!

    Elizabeth2018-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Eleni's apartment was amazing. The view to the Islet of Vila Franca do campo could not have been better. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back. Thank you!

  • We stayed in the loft with our 5 year old and it was perfect. Eleni and Jorge were the best hosts-it felt like we were staying with family. The loft was clean, fully stocked, cozy, and beautiful. The property is stunning and we loved coming “home” to it after our adventures each day. The location is ideal for exploring the island. We highly recommend this property and these hosts. We hope to return and stay again someday!

    A moradia encontra-se a 3 minutos de carro de três praias e a dez minutos (trilho) de uma cascata e uma piscina natural.
    A moradia é um T1, composta por uma sala, um quarto, uma casa de banho, cozinha, sala e lavandaria. Os hóspedes estão sozinhos e não partilham nenhuma parte da casa com ninguém.
  • The home is in a small quiet village and is a great central base for exploring the island. The hosts made it very easy to checkin/checkout. It's a few minutes drive from the main motorway and there's a supermarket close by in Vila Franca do Campo for stocking up on supplies. The apartment is newly decorated, very clean and has everything you need for cooking your own meals. There's so much to do on the island all within easy driving of the aprartment. Check out: * Hot springs at Poça da Dona Beija, Furnas (take your swimming gear) * Sete Cidades * The "Caldeiras" in Furnas (bubbling volcanic activity) (also next to the lagoon) * Caldeira velha near Lagoa do Fogo (another warm pool) * Endless number of viewpoints

  • Andreia went out of her way to help me with an earlier check in, and was helpful with anything I needed. Place was cozy, tucked away in a little village off one of the secondary highways and about 20-25 minutes from PDL with easy access to Furnas and Lagoa da Fogo.

  • Cristina was so easy to comunicate with and everything went so smooth even though our flight to the Island was delayed! She was beyond flexible and soo helpful!! As aaaall the other guests mentioned, the pool in the cliffs on the other end of the corn field was "out-of-this-World"-awesome!! We loved the view from the House, and there was so plenty of room both outside and inside. When you rent a car (which I really recommend, when going to the azores) all you need is within reach!:D The Azores are the most lovely place i've been, and this home is definitely worth a visit! One of the best places Ive been!:D

    Kathrine2018-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Christina's flat is well-located near the town of Vila Franco de Campa. It gives you access to the middle and east of Sao Miguel. We stayed there for one week. VFdC is a nice town and we used the local diving centre Azores Sub there - they have good dive sites localy. You can also access Furnes and Lagoa de Fumo from there. The flat is nicely laid out - one big room with kitchen diner and then two bathrooms. A great aspect is the swimming pool formed in the rocks below the villa as it is private and only for use by guests. I consider ourselves lucky to have gotten a space at the villa. Also Christina is a great host.

    Bill2018-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Cristina's. She was so lovely and accommodating. The house was beautiful and the view spectacular!!! We would stay again in a heartbeat and would highly recommend Cristina and her home to anyone.

    Jessica2016-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • The only unfortunate part about our stay at Cristina's place was that we were only able to stay two nights. We loved the house (which was very spacious), the location (easy access to Furnas, Nordeste, Lagoa/Ponta Delgada, etc.) and the backyard view! On top of all that, Cristina and her lovable pup, were great hosts. This is definitely one place we want to stay at during our return trip to Sao Miguel!

    Mike2017-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for 9 days and had a wonderful time. Cristina was a great host, the communication was really nice and pleasant. She cared for us very nicely. The house was clean and everything was fine. The location directly to the sea and the private pool are fantastic. Many thanks for everything, Cristina! Fully recommendable!

    Elke2017-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Cristina was a great host, always fast to respond to any questions and check-in ran smoothly. The house, access and pool are exactly as you see on the pictures. The house was very big and clean. This is a little piece of Paradise! Would love to be back someday... the sunsets alone are worth the price.

    Carina2015-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here for two nights and would highly recommend for the private 'sea pool' alone. Amazing place to watch the sunset, just a short walk down from the property to the seafront. Stunning!

    Lee2018-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful six days stay at Cristina's place. The apartment is spacious, tastefully decorated, and the view from the front lawn is fantastic. We plan to come again!

    Our place has great views, is within walking distance to shops, restaurants and the beach. We love this house because of the ocean view and the sound of the ocean. Our house is cozy and was recently renovated. We put a lot of work and love into this house and are happy to share it with our family and friends. The house is nicknamed the love shack for it's appeal and charm. It is good for couples, family of four or solo adventurers, We hope you enjoy this gem as much as we do.
    3 level house, living room, dining room, kitchen on main floor. Bedroom and bathroom on 2nd level. 3rd level balcony a great space to unwind and take in the gorgeous ocean view.
    Quiet neighborhood with easy access to beach, shops and restaurants. There is parking on the street if you happen to rent a car. Three of the top rated restaurants by Trip Advisor are only a five minute walk away. Rated four stars by trip advisor are Restaurante Atlantico and there is also Universal Restaurante that is highly recommended. There is also another restaurant with very good seafood further down close to the marina called Estrela do Mar very good. Honestly, I haven't had a bad meal at any of the restaurants in Vila Franca.
  • Great terrace with great view on the ozean. A small but nice beach next door. Kitchen fully equiped, good shower.

    Eric2018-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • The place was cute, homey and really clean. Tony (who gave us a tour) was nice and patient (we got there a bit late). There were enough towels and more than enough pillows (we use a lot of pillows!) But the most special thing about this house is the roof. The view of the Atlantic is breathtaking! We spent a lot of time on the roof. Beautiful experience.

    Sarah2018-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • The "LoveShack" turned out be be exactly as awesome as we wished it would. John gave us tips beforehand and we were already awaited on arrival, the house was spotlessly clean and in very good shape. Located directly at the seaside breakfasts on the roof top with the sunrise and the sea in front of us where indeed contributing to one of the best AirBnB experiences we had so far! Vila Franco do Campo is located roughly in the middle of Sao Miguel which provided us with easy access to all the islands attractions no matter which direction. All in all we can do nothing but wholeheartedly recommend the "LoveShack".

    Michael2017-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location and views -- right on the ocean. Really enjoyed our morning coffee and evening sunsets on the balcony. The apartment was very clean and comfortable and had every amenity we could have needed. We would definitely recommend.

    Adam2017-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Clean house, great location, basically everything you need is there towels for beach, umbrella, coffee maker, TV and A/C downstairs, two fans upstairs to sleep comfortable. The man that takes care of the property there Tony was very helpful.

    Jose2018-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and perfect ocean view. Recommend during seasons with good warm sunny weather as home is facing the ocean and steps away from small beach and natural pool. Can also visit the small island, Islet of Vila Franca do Campo, during open seasons. Home was a good size for the 2 of us; clean and well equipped. Also has a nice rooftop patio you can enjoy the view from. Although upstairs can get humid at times. Host was nice and communicative the entire time and as was Tony, who looked after us.

    Steven2017-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, you will not be disappointed!!!!

    Antonella2018-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding cleanliness and a wonderful location! We watched kayak races from the roof top balcony and a festival procession passed in front of the house. Walk in one direction for the marina and the opposite way for a grassy walk above the sea. Shops and grocery stores are just a few blocks away too. We appreciated the salt, pepper, vinegar, olive oil, garbage bags, etc.,as well as the generous supply of linens. Vila Franca do Campo is a wonderful base for exploring the island. Don't miss the nearby Castello Branco overlook and the Bar Caloura, our favorite restaurant. Be aware that steps to upper floors are steep and narrow.

By a little walk you come to the pool. Most of the time we were alone at that swimming pool area. Also a fitness room is available. Totally worth staying here and recommended!

    Casa do Lagar has a double bedroom, a mezzanine with 2 single beds, dining and living room with a sofa-bed, fireplace, TV, kitchen and 1 bathroom. Capacity: couple + 2 children (extra beds available for free). Lagar is 1 of the 3 cottages of Quinta Velha das Amoreiras. Located on the peaceful outskirts of Vila Franca do Campo,it is classified as rural tourism within a farm covering an area of (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) , which extends all the way to the sea, with breathtaking views.
    Amazing Ocean balcony...
    Quinta Velha das Amoreiras is located at Ribeira das Tainhas, Concelho de Vila Franca do Campo, covering an area of 2.6 hectares, which extends all the way to the sea. The entrance features a coat of arms made from solid rock, given to Captain-Major João Francisco Pacheco de Bettencourt in 1766. According to historical sources, Quinta Velha has been in the hands of the same family since 1755, highlighting its strong heritage. It was previously largely composed of vineyards and orchards, supplemented with greenhouses to produce pineapples, which are still in operation. In the 1960s, the vineyards were progressively replaced with bananas and other produce as economic conditions evolved, resulting in the abandonment of the cellar and alembic. These two buildings have now been fully restored and improved in order to offer the highest quality rural tourism facilities: Casa do Alambique, Casa do Lagar e Casa da Pipa, all with breathtaking views over the sea and the islet of Vila Franca do Campo. There is a natural swimming pool located right by the shore, built with black volcanic rock and with direct access to the sea. There is another swimming pool, located by the houses above with a spectacular view over the ocean.
  • The four of us enjoyed staying here. It accommodated us well. Beatriz's son, Miguel was easy to contact for directions to help us find our way. The ocean pool was beautiful and at low tide you can see little creatures. It was a little cold to swim in so we've already said that next time we'll have to go back in July but then we would miss the Festival of Sao Miguel which was really fun to see.

    Tricia2016-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • The place is amazing, it's better than how it looks in the photo. Everything was clean and tidy. Wish it was warm enough to use the pool while enjoying the stunning view :) hopefully we'll come back one day in the summer!

    Tiffany2015-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot to stay on Sao Miguel - a little ways outside of Villa Franco do Campo - it is possible to walk to the village from the apartment & our taxi driver was willing to drive us out there so everything worked out. If you go to a grocery store before getting to the apartment, you’ll be fine since the house was equipped with the amenities to cook dinner and eat with gorgeous views. Cozy place to pass the night with friends - just a heads up that the walls in the space are very thin, so you can hear everyone’s movement. Also the pools are as gorgeous as the look in the pictures!

    Hannah2018-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • Simply beautiful. Amazing interior and a complete calm feeling when you are at the house. Looking at the sunset in all peace is a wonderful experience. Also the private oceanpool is something special. A big recommendation if you need some rest and a nice place to sleep on the island.

    Jip2018-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • What an awesome spot on the island. It is so quiet and the views are amazing from the room and the pool is just outside the room. The ocean pool is so awesome! The waves were intense when we are there for the one full day but if they weren't I would have spent the entire day there. The history of the building and property and the way they converted this building is so interesting and beautiful. The host is so sweet and we needed nothing during our stay with our 3 year old. I can't wait to come back!!!!

    Natalie2017-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend!

    Angie2017-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay in Casa do Lagar. Both pools are beautiful, but the sea pool is on another level - even if you don't swim in it, you have to go see it. Miguel was a great host and responded quickly to all of our requests. I highly recommend staying here if you are going to spend any time on Sao Miguel.

    Kris2017-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • This place exceeds all expectations and surpasses the pictures. The sea water pool is priceless and the sunsets over the ocean are amazing. If you don’t feel like walking down to the sea water pool, you can simply lounge by the man made pool. We will be back to QVA and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a wonderful stay in the Azores. Thank you Miguel!

  • Loved staying at Marin Mar II! Great views, huge apartment, perfect location! It is right next to the beach with ocean views from the master bedroom and living room. Vila Franca do Campo was quieter than Ponta Delgada and they have tours to the tiny island just off the coast. The town is central to everything and with the rental car we could travel to almost anywhere on the island within an hour.

    Vila Franca Do Campo, Azores, Portugal

    Our house follows a traditional trait and is decorated accordingly. It has been in our family for three generations and sits in a quiet area in Vila Franca do Campo, where the best beaches of São Miguel are located along with Islet’s Natural Reserve.
    The house dates from early 20th century and has a rural and traditional matrix. It was remodelled and upsized respecting its original traits and still maintains its original character given buy the cover deck made of regionally produced ceramic tiles and floors of basalt stone. Bedroom floors in solid wood. All divisions are wide and open, with high ceilings and lots of natural lighting. This house is classified as T2 (portuguese classification corresponding to two bedrooms) and holds a wide living room with sitting and meal preparation areas, kitchen and a full bathroom. The garden can be reached via living room and kitchen areas.
    The house is located in a very quiet part of Vila Franca do Campo with easy car access from the highway (SCUT) or through the village on foot or by car. Rua da Paz leads to a viewpoint with easy parking spots, Ermida de Nossa Senhora da Paz. In addition you can park your car for free on street in the front of our house.
  • Duarte is very gracious and considerate host and very friendly, very kind-hearted person. The house is lovely, even more cosy, clean and comfortable than the photos suggested, with magnificent blossoming garden. The location of the house is very nice, close enough to everything: bus-station, beaches, supermarket (5-15 minutes on foot). Spacious rooms, nice furniture, comfortable beds, fresh bed linen, well-found kitchen with different equipment, little extras such as soap, paper towels, cooking supplies (oil, salt, spice, etc.) - everything we needed was provided and we even received a full basket of the delicious food as a welcome gift (thank you for your care for us, Mariazinha). Duarte met us at the airport, helped us to get to his house and backwards on the day of departure, gave us much useful information about the island. He was prepared to answer any questions we had over the duration of our stay. I would heartily recommend Duarte's house to anyone planning a visit to the gorgeous Sao Miguel island where we spent a wonderful month we will not soon forget. Thank you so much, Duarte!

    Elina2015-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second stay in this lovely home, and we hope to return again. Duarte's welcome was warm, with a clear message to make yourself at home and use anything you need. The house was opened up and waiting for us on arrival, with a lovely gift basket of Azores treats. The gardens and outdoor living space have been enhanced from our last stay, and it was wonderful to relax in the backyard. We were there for the last weekend of the Imperio das Hortos Festival (which I believe runs through the 7th week after Easter), which centers right around the neighborhood of the house. It was amazing to be right in the thick of the festivities, and we absolutely LOVED it. It was, however, very loud with people, music, and fireworks, and we had restricted car access in the evenings due to the road being closed off to traffic, but we'd do it again in a heartbeat to be in the thick of such a fun, authentic festival.

    Laura2018-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • You really get the best of both worlds here: a wonderful house with a delightful garden with views and a well deforested interior, and a peaceful location in Vila Franca do Campo which is within walking distance of N Sra da Paz Church and boats to the nearby island. It can’t be missed. What’s more, Duarte is the kindest host I’ve had on my travels around the world, going well and above my expectations, and providing a true Azores experience. I can’t refommend this one enough.

    Brendan2018-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • Duarte and Maria's house is absolutely beautiful. We have just had the most amazing week in Villa Franco, we didn't want to leave! The house is very traditional, had a brand new bathroom and kitchen, a huge garden with BBQ facilities, chickens clucking away next door and cos on the hill, table and chairs and wonderful comfy beds. It was such a cosy, but surprisingly big house! You can clearly see 'our lady of peace' church from the back garden and it is lit up at night! Fab! The neighbourhood is quiet and tranquil with plenty of friendly locals, farmers going about their daily routine who are all happy to say good morning and offer help and advice if you need it. There is a supermarket just 10mins walk away, which meant we were able to get lots of provisions for a big breakfast and packed lunches for our trips round the island. And the harbour just 10mins walk away offers coffee and marina shops. The house is fully decked out for all your needs, plenty of towels, shampoo and shower gel, bedding, blankets, maps of the islands and guide books. Did I mention the fire!? There is a beautiful traditional fire in the living room made from volcanic rock native to the island, which warmed the house up perfectly. We spend lovely evenings gathered around the fire, talking about what we had seen during the day and planning our adventures for the next day to come. Duarte and his son picked us up from the near by airport and allowed us to follow them back to the house in our hire car. (First time driving on the wrong side of the road for me, Duarte and his son were so patient and allowed me to follow at my own pace). The island itself is the most amazing place with so much to do. We found this house was in the perfect location, just in the middle of the south side of the island, not too near the bustling main town but near enough to get to within about 20mins. It seemed equal distance for all of the main attractions of the island. most journeys took us 20-30mins in our hire car. We managed to squeeze in visits to the 3 main lakes, whale watching, surfing, hot springs in 3 different locations, beaches days the list goes on! We visited the island out of season, and we're not disappointed at all. We had many sunny days where the weather was about 18degrees. Duarte and Maria's house is the first Air BnB we have stayed in, and I can already see its going to be hard to beat! We already plan to return! it was so lovely to meet you and your family, we greatly appreciate everything you did for us and were honoured to stay in your lovely home!

    Katie2016-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our visit to Vila’s Traditional House and would recommend it to anyone seeking a true “traditional” experience in Sao Miguel. Vila Franca is more of a residential town than a tourist town. The property is just as described by Duarte. I won’t repeat information identified in other reviews. Positives: 1. Duarte was a wonderful and welcoming host. He met us at the airport, followed us to the off-airport car rental location, and then led us to the property. There was a welcoming basket for us (greatly appreciated after our overnight flight to the island), and we were able to check in early in the morning so that we could catch up on missed sleep! I forgot my North American/European electric plug adapters, and Duarte brought some by the next morning for us to use. 2. The property is located in the middle of the island which makes it much more convenient to visit the beautiful sights around the island than would lodging in Ponta Delgada. Hiking on the island is fabulous! 3. The back yard is beautiful. The landscaping is superb with grape vines growing on the trellis, as well as hydrangeas, hibiscus, and a magnolia tree in bloom. Considerations: Sao Miguel is very humid, has frequent rain showers, and can be cool at times. The house does not have central heating or cooling. In general, that works fine because of the moderate outside temperatures. For cooler days/nights, you can use the space heater or the fireplace (we were in and out of the house so frequently that the fireplace was not a great option for us). However, for the non-summer months, we recommend bringing some sweats for extra comfort.

  • Pros: - Very, very responsive and helpful host (the most I have ever had with airbnb). Duarte really went above and beyond to help out and always responded to messages immediately. He and his wife had a crib, diapers, and toys available for our baby! - Cool design, traditional older home - Amazing backyard for reading, barbecuing - Central location for the island - great to get to all the sights Cons: - Not quite as many restaurants as in Ponta Delgada - We felt a bit cold a couple nights (in May), but there are space heaters that do a great job. Unfortunately you can only run a couple of the heaters at a time because of the older electricity.

  • Staying at Duarte's house was easily the single best Airbnb experience I've had yet. Upon arrival to the house, he showed us all of the details for the house and appliances very thoroughly. He and his wife even had a gift basket prepared for us with a bottle of wine, local bread, jam, tea, and a few local tastes of the island! He was super friendly and wanted us to have the best possible experience while there. He was always available to be contacted and answered all questions quickly and thoroughly leading up to the stay and while there. He even offered to give us a ride to the airport to catch our flight! The house itself was beautiful and very clean, organized, and well cared for. All appliances were like new. Dishwasher and clothes washer were somewhat hard to use with symbols that we weren't familiar with. Great traditional home with lots of heritage all around you. Beautiful backyard with patio, grilling area, and colorful plants. Wireless access is fast and smooth. The home is located in a nice area, with close neighbors but lots of privacy. Within a couple minute walking distance to downtown Vila Franca and it's great culture. Tight locked parking space for a car or two. Would recommend to anyone and look forward to returning some time.

  • We stayed at João’s place for 3 nights. It has great location, close to a small bay, small swiming pool in the ocean and the best fish restaurant! It's a great place to escape from all tourists and people. It has a beautiful private garden with a barbecue. The place is renovated, really clean and cosy. João and his family were very nice and helpful. There is a place to park the car and a free parking very close by. Overall it was a great place to stay! Highly recommended!

  • This was the most wonderful place to stay. It was like we arrived to stay with long lost Azorean family. We were immediately welcomed with such warmth and hospitality. We were made to feel so comfortable. The room was sparkling clean. The bathroom was very nice. There is a spacious closet to hang clothing in. The location was unbeatable. We were a few steps down the road from a beautiful swimming area and the very fantastic seafood restaurant Bar da Caloura. There is a lovely spring of crystal clear water up the road where we were able to get the most delicious fresh drinking water. The location was peaceful and quiet, surrounded by spectacular natural beauty. We cannot say enough about what a wonderful experience we had.

    Erica2017-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • She was very friendly and told us a lot about st Miguel. The location was perfect near the beach and a very good restaurant. The garden and the outdoor kitchen we enjoyed also very much. Just the shower wasn't so good

    Freddy Johanna2017-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very pleasant stay in beautiful caloura. The house is simple but super charming and the garden is very pretty. Thanks for letting us stay in this beautiful place!

    Maike2017-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • It's a very comfortable place. It's like it's your own house with a garden where you can relax. It's close to the sea and a small fishing harbour. There is a nice fish restaurant near by, but it's difficult to get a table.

  • We vey highly recommend this house. It is beautiful, spacious, full of light, well appointed in every way. Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, stunning views of the ocean as we sat outside for our meals. In addition, Maria provides so much for guests--we felt like we were in a 5 star hotel. Fresh cut flowers in the house; stocking the refrigerator with cheese, meat, juice,and fruit; leaving us a pot of soup, bread,and dessert. In addition, Maria was very gracious and helpful--answering all our questions promptly and giving us great advice of what to do. Truly spectacular in every way.

    Julia2017-06-06T00:00:00Z
  • This is very impressive house, one of my best AirBNB stays. Beautiful views and very details in the house, one can get anything he/she needs in this AirBNB. We all love it very much.

  • Small town/ country atmosphere but easy access to everything. Such a comfortable, well set up , happy place to spend time indoors in. Azores takes care of your time out doors. Beautiful and beautiful food, too. We will miss the cookies and the Passion fruit yogurt and the island bananas!!!

    Ariel2017-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • Our experience exceeded our expectations! The home is situated just outside the center and within walking distance to the grocery store and restaurants. Maria gave us a warm welcome and provided everything we needed for a comfortable stay— way beyond the basics. Arriving to find homemade soup, cake, bread and other provisions was very appreciated after our long flight. The home is charming and comfortable with amazing views of the ocean and gardens. The town of Vila Franca do Campo was a great location from which to explore the island.

    Susan2018-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • Maria was a spectacular host!! We stayed a week in her wonderful home. She was very welcoming and met us at the house. She provided great breads, jams, and snacks for us which was perfect. The house is stocked with bath & beach towels which was a huge plus. The property is in an ideal location. Very close to access the highway and grocery store. The property itself is very private & cozy. The bedrooms are comfortable and the downstairs is set up nicely to socialize. The outdoor space is lovely too. There are tables to have a meal and a lawn area with lounge chairs. It was a perfect place to unwind after a day out before dinner. Maria was available for anything we needed. Checking out was easy. Having such a lovely place to stay really made it enjoyable. When we return we will definitely stay with Maria again.

    McCotta2016-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was wonderful. Beautiful spot. Beautiful house and a wonderful host. Hot soup was waiting for us after our arrival from the airport. Including a fresh baked carrot cake and muffins and a full fridge for breakfast. Recommend it to everyone including families with children.

    Hans2017-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at Maria's house very much. Especially the lovely garden and terrace with the most fantastic view of the sea and the small island. The house has all the facilities you can think of and everything was very nice and clean. Maria is a very kind host. She prepared a soup and baked a tasty cake for us and filled the fridge with everything you need for breakfast. We warmly recommend Maria's house.

    Asger 2017-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Maria's place my four friends travelling from Lisbon. The welcome exceeded our expectations, from the fact that she was there to greet us late it in the night, to all what she left us on the table for our arrival and breakfasts. The cake was really amazing and the jams too, it felt like having breakfast in a fancy hotel! We found the house even more beautiful than what we could see in the pictures. Incredibly well organized and clean. It was the perfect spot to start our daily adventure, though I highly recommend you rent a car if you are considering to stay at this place (which you should). Maria was the perfect host, readily available, but definitely not intrusive, warm and kind. During my trip I kept telling my parents that they should visit the Azores Island and that I found the best accommodation for them an I would love to go back to Sao Miguel and Maria's place. Muito obrigada!!

    Alambique has a double bedroom with a balcony, living room with a wood burning stove, TV, kitchen, bathroom and 2 terraces. Capacity: 2 people (+ 2 1 sofa-bed for a kid at the living room). Alambique is 1 of the 3 cottages of Quinta Velha das Amoreiras, located at the peaceful outskirts of Vila Franca do Campo, classified as rural tourism within a farm covering an area of (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) , which extends all the way to the sea, with amazing views.
    This is a self catering cottage with shared grounds and swimming pools. From the outside upper terrace you can enjoy the view over the sea and small town of Vila Franca do Campo.
    Quinta Velha das Amoreiras is located at Ribeira das Tainhas, Concelho de Vila Franca do Campo, covering an area of 2.6 hectares, which extends all the way to the sea. The entrance features a coat of arms made from solid rock, given to Captain-Major João Francisco Pacheco de Bettencourt in 1766. According to historical sources, Quinta Velha has been in the hands of the same family since 1755, highlighting its strong heritage. It was previously largely composed of vineyards and orchards, supplemented with greenhouses to produce pineapples, which are still in operation. In the 1960s, the vineyards were progressively replaced with bananas and other produce as economic conditions evolved, resulting in the abandonment of the cellar and alembic. These two buildings have now been fully restored and improved in order to offer a rural tourism facilities. There is a natural swimming pool located right by the shore, built with black volcanic rock and with direct access to the sea. There is another swimming pool, located by the houses above with a spectacular view over the ocean.
  • Very nice place to stay in family. The natural swimming pool is tremendous. The house is clean, comfortable, and well equiped. The terrace upstairs is a quiet place for sun bathing, sleeping, reading, dining, drinking, admiring the fantastic landscape. Miguel, the owner, is very kind, always ready to help.

    Jeanne2017-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Casa Alambique and very much enjoyed it. The history of this location is amazing, the grounds expansive and the views incredible. The sea pool is amazing and being able to access the shore from the property was an excellent benefit. The grounds have banana plantations that just add so much to the character of this location. Parking is excellent and private and gaining access to the grounds (check-in) is efficient and easy. Miguel, our host is an absolutely wonderful man who made sure we had everything we needed and that we were happy and satisfied. The onsite swimming pool (they call the artificial pool) is gorgeous and sits right on the hillside with exceptional views of the sea and islet. We do recommend this location - if you have never driven on the island before, we do recommend a small car, the roads are narrow and be prepared to stay focused and pay attention to yielding! But this truly adds to overall character and charm of the island experience. 5 Stars!!

    Michael2017-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at the Casa do Alambique. Beautiful hose with a gorgeous top terrace overlooking the Famous Vila Franca do campo islet. Stunning sunsets, plus a stunning poo! To top it all a short walk through a banana plantation to discover a natural pool by the sea. Paradise on earth. This all with amazing value for money.

    Paulo2017-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing relaxing stay at the Casa do Alambique. Everything was very clean and the views from the terrace (we watched the amazing night sky filled with stars) and the "artifical" pool are magnificent - a great place to watch stunning sunsets. We also enjoyed walking through the banana plantation all the way to the stunning private seaside pool and hope to be back at a warmer time of the year to use the pools more. The basket filled with local products (cheese, milk, jam and bread) set on the table at our arrival was a really nice touch (we didn't expect that from a cottage rental like this :D ). We highly recommend this place, great value for money!

  • The pictures do not do this place justice and show how amazing it really is! There are two balconies and a roof deck. The private salt water pool attached to the ocean was breathtaking. We already want to plan our next stay.

  • The view from this appartment is just as amazing as it is showing on the pictures. We enjoyed the balcony, especially when the sun went down at the end of the afternoon. The appartment was also quit big and well located. From the location we were able to move easily to all sides of the island (by car). Last but not least, Pedro is a very nice host and made sure we were welcomed well and replied immediately if we needed anything.

    Mounia2018-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very nice stay at Pedros apartment. The flat is clean and comfortable. You can cook and have dinner at the terrace with an awesome view. During the first night we had a problem with our fridge: Pedro was at the flat in-between 20 minutes and changed the complete fridge. Thanks a lot for this service and your tips what to visit on your wonderful island!

    Christian2017-06-24T00:00:00Z

    This house may be small but it has a lot to offer. It provides you with everything you need, plus a beautiful view to the ocean. You can even have dinner in the yard and see the waves. This house is also 1km away from the beach and 500m away from a supermarket. Whatever your needs may be, the host Rui will make sure that you enjoy your vacation.
    The house has 1 bedroom, 1 kitchen, 1 bathroom and 1 living room. It even has a small table in the garden so you can have dinner outside. Or maybe you prefer to take a hot shower with a shower that has MUSIC. You can also wash and dry your clothes if you need to. This house is truly wonderful.
  • The place is nice and stylish and perfect for a couple. It also sits on a cliff above the ocean, so has a beautiful view of the ocean and the islet. You're fairly central on the island itself, and so getting places is quite simple. There wasn't a ton there in the village, and when we asked for recommendations the response we got was "I don't really know this side of the island." So we had to do a lot of discovering and exploring ourselves. The other thing too was the bed was very firm. My wife loved it, but it was uncomfortable for me after a couple nights. The wifi was "there" but not in the house. We had to sit outside next to the other rental property in order to get a good enough signal to do anything, so that was rather inconvenient. We were given a prepaid cell phone to keep on us in case of emergency, which was awesome (never needed to use it). That was a really nice little touch. Because the house is all windows on the ocean side, it got pretty toasty inside. There was a single fan, which was ok, but didn't do as much as we had hoped. Having either 2 fans, or an extension cord to put the fan in a window or door to pull in the cooler air would have been great. Also, in an effort to keep the house cooler while we were out we left the fan off, but that set off the alarm, so we either had to leave it off, or hide it behind the table. Overall though, we liked the place and are glad we stayed there... we just think there are a few things that need to be upgraded.

The rooms are stylish, the property is beautiful, and the view from the porch and garden is breathtaking. The only thing better than the home itself is Pedro and Rita! Their hospitality made us feel right at home. This place is a true gem, with the luxury of a hotel and the comfort and special touches of airbnb. Definitely our favorite Airbnb experience to date, can’t recommend it enough!

  • This is very cool property on the edge of the rocks and Pedro & his family are very warmthful hosts! We have a magic 4 days of stay there and will definitely return! The property located quite far from the airport and to stay here you definitely need a car. But location is beatiful, not so much overcrowded by people and the cars like Ponta Delgada and still close to main sights of the island. Sandy beach, whale tours boats and 2 good restaurants within walking distance and supermarket is 5 minutes away. We will definitelty come back one day...

    This property has been in the family since 1902. It was a former wine cellar, and it was rebuilt as 5 comfortable little apartments once the wine production ceased more than 40 years ago. We aim to provide a peaceful and enjoyable stay for our guests
    Each apartment can accommodate up to 3 people. Each has a bathroom, a kitchen, a living room and a bedroom. All the essentials are included in the apartment (bed sheets, towels, soap, shampoo, toilet paper...). The kitchen has a washing machine and that our guests are free to use (detergent and fabric softener is provided). There is a clothes iron and ironing board, as well as a hair dryer. There is also a television set in the living room, and free Wi-Fi through the whole apartment. The bedroom has two single beds, but the couch in the living can accommodate a third person. There is also a baby crib in the bedroom, if needed.
    It is located in the peaceful and rural area of Água de Pau, and it is ideal for a calm stay. This area is ideal for hiking and walking among nature, as there are various nature trails nearby.
  • António and his brother were amazing hosts. The communication was always really fast between us. The apartment was great, it had everything we need for a week, but you can easily spend more time there. It is bigger than it appears on the pictures. It is on a very good location, it's quite, but the village center is near with shops, bank and atm. Also there is a beautiful place at the shore just 800m away, with nice volcanic rocks you can climb up to and watch the sunset. Priceless! We of course drove around the island. It is a very good starting point for discovery. António and his brother really made us feel welcome there. They replaced the towels frequently, offered to clean the apartment, and bring a lot of small things, like fresh warm bread and local butter, which was amazing! I'm quite sure we are going to go back once, and I really recommend this place!

  • A fantastic place to stay, 10 mins walk from the beach and a great bar / restaurant. Well equipped apartment, really good value for money, a friendly welcome and excellent service. Many thanks for a great holiday.

    Helen2016-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • Antonio's place is close to both Ponta Delgada and Vila Franco do Campo (if you like the city) and several great beaches -- Caloura Praia (bring your mask and snorkel), Agua d'Alto, and Baixa d'Areia Praia (walkable from the apartment). We appreciated the beach towels Antonio provided, and it was convenient to have the use of a washing machine. Also, it was lovely to have outdoor seating. You will only want to be outdoors when you visit the Azores.

    Mary2018-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at the apartement Galé. António is very flexible, friendly and attentive! He gave us a lot of tips and he did everything to make us happy – succesful! Agua de Pau is good location to explore the whole island. We enjoyed our stay at Sao Miguel! Thank you so much!

    Sophie2018-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • The appartment was great! Even more better than the pictures. António was not there at the moment, but his brother. Warm welcome and António did even come later to introduce himself. I would certainly recommend this appartment to others.

    Anouk2016-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Antonio is a very nice host. This home is a very quite place and an ideal situation to visit San Miguel.

    Philippe2017-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Nice spacious layout with backyard terrace and very large shared backyard! Antonio was more then helpful with extra towels and linen provided, even brought us fresh hot bread on one morning! Lovely spot to stay in the middle of the island, easy to travel to the main attractions. Would recommend to friends!

    Mark2016-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect spot for your stay in São Miguel! Family-friendly, 2 mins from Água de Pau village and Caloura beach. António was a great host, always available to answer our needs. Totally recommended!

  • Great place with an amazing view! Very clean, communication with host was easy and always very helpful. Location was perfect to discover the island.

    Theresa2018-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • Herminio is a great host! He is really helpful and friendly. His house is really lovely and stylish and actually better than the photos showed. It is right next to the sea where you can swim virtually from your doorstep! It is on three floors with wonderful views and a great balcony on the top floor. We loved the house, the island and the wonderful people. It is convenient for seeing the whole of the island and has shops, eating place close by. Don't forget to visit Jessica and her sister at Sabores da Vizinha , a great little restaurant a few minutes walk away. (Website hidden by Airbnb) We loved our stay and will be back!

    Wendy2018-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • This was such an amazing place. The pictures on the Air BNB site do NOT do this place justice. The 3 levels offer incredible views of the ocean, town and streets. Hermínio was such a fantastic host, greeting us exactly on time for arrival.. and coming to say goodbye on our departure date. If you're a couple (or family) who loves adventuring and does not want to stay in a big city, then do yourselves a favour.. and stay here!! The location was absolute perfection when it came to day trips to each and every location that this amazing island had to offer. Will definitely recommend this location to friends and family over and over again!!

    Corey2017-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great location right on the water. Everything was as advertised. Host was good to meet us late after arrival for check in. Villa Franca do Campo great base for exploring Sao MIguel. Also got to see our host marching in a feast day procession!

    Eric2018-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay in Vila Franca do Campo. Great Location with a beautiful view of the islet and great access to the western part of the island. Herminio was very accommodating and his communication was excellent.

    Tim2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding views from all 3 levels of the ocean just steps away. Very clean and modern place with full kitchen and superb balcony. Herminio was incredibly responsive to my messages prior to arrival and during our stay. I would recommend this place in the future. It’s important to note that a car is required to get around the island easily.

    Michael2018-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • Дом хорошо расположен в теплом солнечном месте с отличным видом на океан и остров. Хозяин Herminio встретил нас по приезду и передал ключи, был всегда на связи. Во время нашего двухнедельного проживания три раза проводилась уборка со сменой постельного белья и полотенец. В доме 3 этажа - спальня находится на первом этаже. Понравилось загорать на веранде третьего этажа. Проблем с парковкой нет. Большой плюс, что окна в доме зеркальные. Немного омрачало наше пребывание наличие муравьев в ванной комнате и кухне - спрей против муравьев не помогал. В доме неподалёку содержат 5 маленьких собак, которые лаяли на проходящих мимо людей. Практически под окнами спальни местные жители выбрасывают мусор. Несмотря на небольшие недостатки, это жильё рекомендую для спокойного отдыха.

    Andrei2018-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Hermínio, Obrigado pela hospitalidade. Gostámos bastante de passar férias na sua Casa das Dias. Está muito bem localizada no centro da localidade e com uma vista espetacular sobre o mar. Obrigado também pelas dicas que nos deu.

    Excellent location at the gorgeous place of Caloura (Água de Pau village). 20 minutes driving from Ponta Delgada city center. Identical distance (40Km) to both Island extremities (West & East). Countryside and sea borders. Supermarkets, restaurants, pharmacy, shops, around 5-10 minutes walking distance. We recommend to rent - a - car to explore the island ...anyway there are buses..Pick your car with AZORES CAR! Feel the environmental atmosphere, sea, birds and walking trilles around...
    Studio room.
    Beach, sea, birds...nature!
  • I recently spent 3 days at this nice little house in Agua de Pau/Caloura. Before my visit, Catarina was always prompt in answering my emails and helping to provide directions to the house. Upon my arrival, Catarina's father Antonio greeted me and showed me everything in the house and pointed out some of the places around Caloura and Agua de Pau to go visit. Overall, I had a great and relaxing stay and enjoyed the lovely little town, and many thanks to Antonio for making me feel welcome!

    William2014-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very easy to locate and Catarina's father couldn't have been more welcoming. He invited me in the house where he lives adjacent to the property and we talked about his travels in the U.S. and things to see and do in and around Caloura and Sao Miguel in general. The property was clean and well equipped - Catarina's father even left a local pineapple and butter for me. The location is beautiful and close enough to walk to both Caloura beach and the small port. It would be great to have an extended stay here next time I'm on Sao Miguel.

    Sean2014-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • We loved to stay in Catarina's parents home! The house is perfectly located in the middle of the island, in a cozy village which faces the ocean! The house has everything you need for your holliday, including a place where to park the car you need to visit Sao Miguel. Catarina's parents are the kindest host you can dream for: they welcomed us late in the night with local chees and bread and everything for the breakfast of the day after. They also gave us a lot of local suggestions to enjoy the island even more! If you are planning your next trip in Sao Miguel you have to stay here!

    Sofia2016-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying here! Catarina's parents are amazing and welcoming people. They were very friendly and helpful and made our trip that much better! Words cant describe how much we loved Milou. The bed was extremely comfortable and we had all the amenities we needed. I think the location of the house is a perfect hub to explore the island. We will definitely be back

    Tony2016-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • So we spent 6 nights at this place, the attention from the hosters was very good, they are incredibly nice, the location is great, very still surrounding, you sleep like a baby! The only thing I could complain about is that the room was kind of cold at night and there was a light mustiness smell.... We had an amazing vacation though!!!!!

    Wendy2017-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect central location to discover the fantastic Sao Miguel island.. Manuel and Paula (Catarina's parents) gave us a really nice welcome with some local delicatessen waiting for us! They were really helpful during our week there giving us always good advices and suggestions to get the most of our time in Sao Miguel. In the house we had everything we needed and even more for a perfect holiday. Do not hesitate to visit the close Caloura restaurant for a perfectly cooked grilled fish! We would definitely recommend this location for your time in the paradisiac island!

    Paula2016-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay here was amazing!!! Manul and paula, catarinas parents were the best hosts you can ask for.. from the pickup at the airport to the help in other things.. there worm heart well be unforgtfull.. the house itself is great and has everything u need.. and is at a great location.. go to sao miguel and stay here.. u will not forget it!!!!!

    Yonatan2014-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • This was an amazing holiday! Thanks to Paula and Manuel, which are the perfect hosts and even took their time to pick me up at the airport and showed me arround a hole day, the lovely furnished appartement with kitchen and everything you need and the very nice surrounding (beach very close, hills and the beautiful landscape of hole Sao Miguel) I had a wonderful relaxed time on the Azores. I definitively recommend to go there and visit !!!!! :-)

    900 metros da Praia de Agua D´Alto, freguesia típica, trilhos pedestres, museus etc. A 3 kms fica restaurantes, lagoa, Vila Franca do campo, também supermercados, apesar de na freguesia existir uma pequena loja de bens essenciais.
    How to Find the Houses from the Airport Leaving the airport you start in the main fast way. About 22 km ahead you will find a sign with name Àgua de Pau/ Ribeira Chã *Nascente – This exit will lead you to a roundabout. Take the 2 nd exit with the Ribeira Chã, drive down until the plate Ribeira Chã on the left side, just go up, (don´t turn) until a Small Café called “Couto”, turn in the 2nd right, (in front a small Bus STOP) after the café in a Street that have a signe only ( Excepto moradores), and just go down until the nº 11 on the right side. Have a nice stay!!
  • Nice little place in a quiet and beautiful village! Just a little bit cold in winter, a heater could be great...

    Natacha2017-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • A good central place to explore the Island. The beach is nearby, also some great trails to hike. The house itself is pretty basic, but looks good. The terrace with a view on the sea is a major asset. Paulina is a helpfull host. Minor points: you will encounter the neighbourhood doggies. It's an old house with a lot of charm but also some 'odeurs'... ;) Conclusion: price/value is good.

    Thijs2017-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • This was a real home from home with a beautiful view from the terrace and bedroom windows. The place was perfectly clean and well stocked for our stay. Easy to find, and in a quiet location. The view from the terrace is beautiful. There is ample parking on the property, but the entrance from the narrow road into the narrow gate can be a bit tricky. We had a Fiat Punto, and we had to go back and forth several times on getting in and out so as not to scratch the car. If you're renting a larger vehicle, you may have to park slightly away from the property. The upside is, though, since it's only a narrow one-way dead-end street, there is no traffic noise at all. The place is cozy and well prepared for visitors. We would happily stay there again.

    Mark And Sinka2018-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • WiFi and internet are excellent. The location is in the middle of Sau Miguel, so close to everything with an exceptional view over ocean. In general the house is great and cosy and we were very happy to be there. Paulina is a wonderful person.

    Behrouz2018-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, in a little village (ribeira chã). Everything we needed was provided, and Paulina answered all our questions !

    Nicolas2016-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • we had a great stay at Paulina's place! getting there from Ponta Delgada was easy enough. the house was spacious enough for us and had everything we needed. the patio with a view of the ocean was fantastic (we sat out there every night). it's a good, quiet location and convenient to drive to anywhere on the island within an hour.

    Anton2018-09-06T00:00:00Z

  • The villa is in a great location, right in front of the sea. The house has great veiws and is located in the middle of the island from where you navigate all the four directions which is approx. 30 kms one way. Max is very responsive and quick to answer your queries, he arranged breakfast on our day of arrival which was a great help. He also arranged a point of contact for airport pickup and for all practical issues in the house. Hence overall its a great value for money.

    Arjun2017-04-15T00:00:00Z

    Arnaud2017-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • When you read reviews people normally write excellent but I can honestly say a group of 10 of us stayed in Max’s place and the pool house and it was absolutely incredible beyond words!! from the thoughful touches of bringing us a basket with wine cheeses and bread and local treats, to reserving and recommending excellent restaurants and always being accessible when our group had questions, we had a wonderful stay highly recommend this place you will not go wrong at all!! Thanks max and family we hope to stay with you soon Cheers Dan &Kristine and the Canadian group

    Dan2017-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • The pool house is part of a familly house. All members of the familly were really nice with us. We shared good moment together even if we had also our own privacy! We had also access to the pool (salted water) which is very clean and warm enough. The pool house is as described, no bad surprise. There was even a welcome pack when we arrived with local food. The situation is perfect to visit all the island and there is one of the best fish restaurant of the island in the village (Bar Caloura - (Website hidden by Airbnb) The house is also in front of the see and if you are lucky like us you will see dolphins. To summary we recommand this place and we had a very pleasant trip.

    Thibaut2015-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful house and grounds, suitable for a quiet get away or a family trip. The house, grounds, and pool are impeccably maintained. The ocean views are fantastic each day; we were able to enjoy both sunrise and sunset each day because of the open ease/west views. The house is spacious, well stocked for those that like to cook, and clean. Max helped us find a local chef to come in to cook some meals, which were incredible. Best seafood restaurant is very close. Max is an incredible host, attentive, informative, extremely helpful. Quiet neighborhood. Good privacy. By far, this was our best holiday vacation.

    Joyce2017-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay at Max' poolhouse. The setting is in a pittoresque village, with a beautiful view of the ocean. Great place to move around the island. Also has a very nice pool, and outlook point located on a hill where you can watch the sun go down.

    Nic2018-05-23T00:00:00Z

    Ahmad2018-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place is HUGE. Three large bedrooms and two full bathrooms would make this location perfect for a large family or two couples. The location was convenient to access both Villa Franco and Ponta Delgada. Close to many spectacular beaches and a short drive from Furnas, we found that we were never more than a 40 minute drive from anywhere on the island. The only shortfall is that there is not much within walking distance. We missed being able to walk to a coffee shop or fruteria in the morning. We would happily come back though!!

    Valerie2018-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Bruno's apartment! The apartment is huge! There is a supermarket close by, only 2 mins drive. Bruno was a great host, very responsive and friendly. We would recommend as a great base for exploring the island!

  • We stayed in total four days at Pedro's apartment. It is located very conviently to explore Furnas, Lago de Fogo, the North Coast and Povoacao because the house is located close to the main connecting road EN1-1A (there is also little noise from the street) . As you can see on the picture, the house is at the top of a small town with a nice view to the city and the hills. The entire house has three apartments and the apartment we stayed in was very spacious for 2 people. All the basics were available for cooking. Pedro replied fast and was easy going.

    Ilona2018-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • Thoroughly enjoyed everything about Pedro's lovely home! We were a family of four adults, and there was enough space for all of us. It was perfectly located - central and right off the highway, but secluded enough that it was quiet at any time of the day. THE VIEW and waking up to the sound of birds were our absolute favourite. Not to mention Pedro was incredibly friendly and helpful when we met him. I would definitely love to stay here again. Muito obrigado Pedro!

  • The House is absolutely stunning, the view, the pool everything ist just perfekt. You will find everything you need to cook, wash or just relax. I recommend to rent a car -you can ask the owner or rent at the airport.

  • Our stay in Roberto's House was perfect. The view is amazing and the house is spacious with all we needed. We never had any problem with enough towels, hot water, washing (laundry + dish). Roberto is very near and rapidly gives answer to any question. The 3 bathrooms made very comfortable for 3 couples but there are 2 more rooms that can accommodate more 4 people.

  • we had a great stay at marina mar ! The installations were really nice, the view was breathtaking and the staff amazing (especially jose the concierge). The only downside was that the internet did not work almost the whole stay .. i still recommend this place!

  • I would recommend this place for everyone, that’s going to the Azores.

  • We had an amazing time! We rented a car straight from the airport. The location is perfect! Supermarket nearby and the beach is so close. It is a good starting point for exploring the whole island. I suggest renting a car, when you want to explore the island. The apartment is really clean, big and the kitchen has everything! Breakfast on the balcony, ocean in the background - can´t get any better! We arrived very late, but late check-inn was no problem!

  • On hot days, Marina Mar II (where Mystic Islands seem to own a few units) offers an oasis of quietness and a private pool that is never crowded. Within walking distance to the Marina (from which the boat ride to Ilheu is a must at 5 euros) and a fabulous seafood restaurant with top floor terrace (O Atlantico), the Vila Franca Do Campo Airbnb is still a good value for its luxury price.

  • This is one of the best accommodations I have ever booked. The apartment is huge, well lit, and has an amazing view. I loved the view, the pool, the location, and how easy it was to check in and check out. STRONGLY RECOMMEND!!!!

    Adriana2018-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is just amazing and absolutely huge. We were only two and had way too much space. It easily fits 4 people, even 6 would be fine. The space was very clean, big and the views from the balcony are amazing. The kitchen is well equipped. You can park the car within a gated community. Communication with Ana was very easy, flexible and fast. We would recommend the apartment. Everything on the island is reachable by car within 60min so it's a good base to stay.

  • we ended up not staying at this property but Andre has reached out to us and guided us to the new place before arrival. the place was very clean and suitable for us close to two beaches and city center. Andre met with us and showed us all the hot spots, he is very calm, kind and proud of island which makes him outstanding host. we look forward to go back.

    We enjoyed our visit to Vila’s Traditional House and would recommend it to anyone seeking a true “traditional” experience in Sao Miguel. Vila Franca is more of a residential town than a tourist town. …
