If you want to feel like you are at home, this is the place to stay. Maria is the perfect host providing a house which is beautifully decorated and plenty of room for 6 adults. Upon arrival, there was warm soup on the stove, homemade banana bread on the counter along with several other food items! The house is fully equipped with beach towels, coolers, beach mats and more. The bedrooms are plenty big and are located on the 2nd floor. There is an outside covered area which is shared with one other apartment on the property. There is off street parking and there is a large yard with fruit trees. The downtown area is less than 2 miles away where there are many restaurants. This property has a waterview. Without hesitation, I would recommend staying here and hope to return in the future.
Casa da Quinta accommodated the 6 of us well. The tastefully decorated and well equipped home was a perfect venue for exploring the lovely Island of San Miguel. We were welcomed by Donny, who provided us with good information as well as pineapples from his greenhouse and freshly picked oranges and dwarf bananas. Maria, our host , had supplied us with a homemade soup and pumpkin cake as well as a thoughtfully stocked refrigerator. Sippung wine on the deck overlooking the flowers and lush greenery provided a welcome respite from the Maine winter.
Vila Franca do Campo, a unspoilt town, where locals live. Great accomodation, in walking distance of town, and beaches, also can get boat trip to island. Maria, was so helpful and when we arrived, soup and cake on table. We also didn't need to go for a shop, as basics supplied too. The pictures do not give the garden justice, lovely place to relax, with great views. Can also get buses from town, to Furnas, and to Ponta Delgarda. Found the locals friendly and very helpful. A wonderful experience.
This charming house has all the amenities from home plus more! Upon arrival, Maria, the owner provided many goodies, a delicious homemade chocolate cake, and even soup! This was one of our best stays ever and defintely exceeded our expectations!Beautiful views highlight this quaint charming home, offering plenty of parking and gorgeous grounds. Such a quaint and cozy rental.
Best vacation ever!
Wow! What an amazing place to stay.
This house has everything you need from a self catering holiday home and more! The house is located in Vila Franca de Campo and has a beautiful view of the coast and the island which is just off shore. The location of the house is perfect as a base for exploring the island of Sao Miguel as vila Franco da campo is found at the centre of the south coast. It is only a short journey to get anywhere from it on the island.
The house itself is excellent. It is clean and all facilities are a high standard and modern. The bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms have everything you could need. There was - on request- a high chair and cot for my baby which were fantastic. All bedding and towels were provided.
Maria, who owned the house, could not have been more helpful in the run up or more welcoming when we got there. She responded to all email enquiries quickly and was there to greet us when we arrived at the house.
A wonderful extra touch was that Maria filled the house with delicious Azorean treats and basic essentials to get us started- which we enjoyed very much - including bread, milk, butter, cookies, nuts, fresh fruit, cheese, chutneys, wine, juice as well gorgeous home made soup and delicious home baked cakes too. She really did spoil us!
This is definitely a 5 star house - I wish I could give it more stars in fact! If we come back to the Azores we will stay here again.
Thank you Maria
