“The best place to stay in Sao Miguel!”
Reviewed 12 October 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

I visited the Sao Miguel for the very first time this year for 10 days at the end of August and had the pleasure of staying at this apartment.

The location was perfect. It was just steps away from the marina where you could get the boat to the Ilhéu or to go on one of the Whale Watching trips ( I highly recommend doing both, they were definitely highlights of our trip). The marina cafe itself was the perfect place to grab a coffee in the morning before the start of our daily adventures and also had complementary wifi so we could use the internet there. Everything from the town center to the breath taking Vinha d'Areia Beach was just steps away from the apartment.

The apartment itself was amazing. It was extremely spacious, very clean and very well maintained. It also has two bedrooms that could very comfortably sleep up to 5 people. The apartment also had a private balcony and outdoor pool which were both very nice features. The apartment has a full kitchen and a washing machine so we could cook and wash our clothes/towels as we needed to.

I had an amazing time in Sao Miguel and staying at this apartment. I highly recommend it and can’t wait to come back again.

“Perfect for us”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was our first visit to Sao Miguel and after spending two weeks and exploring the island we all concluded that we have nailed the perfect spot. Villa Franca is not too big as a city of Ponta Delgada but it is also not too small to lose the excitement of having cafe's, restaurants and plazas bustling with the social life of the locals and tourists. It is just a few steps to the beach, cafe and a restaurants. We enjoyed cooking ourselves in the kitchen. The building seems super safe although the entire community in Villa Franca is very friendly and seems to be crime free. Definitely recommend this place. It was spotless, clean, all appliances worked for us and Rita was super patient and helpful with us.

Thank You.

“Excellent appartment in very nice place!”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Very comfortabel appartment in Villa Franca Da Campo. All the contacts with the owner and with the persons who gave the keys etc. went very fine, without any problem. At arrival a bottle of wine and flowers confirmed that we where welcome. Nice terras to have breakfast with the company of the marvelous palm tree in front of the appartment. Nice small waterpool in the garden, just excellent on the warmest days for the kids and I to cool down. At no distance the bar of the little harbour with possobilities to have breakfast, small meals and all kind of drinks from the morning until at night. And you don't hear any noise of it in the appartment! Well equiped, clean, silent, ... The beach around the corner as well as the departure for dolphins and whale excursions in the harbour which are very good as they approach the animals with the respect they deserve, not as other bat excursions. We had the chance to see 15 whales at at a time :). The village is still very original and quite, the museum of the city worth a visit! The place is excellent to visit the island. Excellent adress! Thank you again Luis and Rita!

“Close to everything we wanted”
Reviewed 9 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Great location, walk to beach, marina, and restaurants!
We enjoyed having a full size kitchen for the times we didn't want to eat out, and loved sitting on the balcony relaxing. There is also a washing machine which was Very handy (hang the clothes to dry). And a parking space in back in case you rent a car to visit other parts of the island :-)

Two bedrooms was more room than we needed, but we loved the extra space!

The Condo was perfect for us and our 13 year and 16 year old sons. It was spotless, very comfortable, quiet, roomy and the location was excellent. Close to everything including a short walk to the beach, shops and restaurants. It has all the conveniences including a washing machine and a great parking spot.
Owners and Rita were wonderful and very helpful. Based on our very positive experience,
we would definitely recommend this to our family and friends. It was a week to treasure forever!
