“A beautiful traditional Azorian home in a great location”
Reviewed 6 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Manuels property is adjacent to his family home and is well equipped and furnished in a traditional way. The gardens are beautiful and have plenty of seating areas surrounded by flowers for sun or shade lovers. The house is situated on the north with sea views and is a good point to access all the sights ,however you will need a car as we weren't aware of much local transport . There is a small village about a mile away which you can walk easily to with a restaurant and shop. It is a quiet area with most of the through traffic being from the farming community.A five minute drive away is the small town of Capelas where there are more shops ,fuel and a good choice of eateries. Manuel is a charming host who is most helpful and happy to provide advice if needed .

“Highly recommended”

Quinta dos Afectos is a large comfortable house in a lovely setting. The owner and his son could not have been more friendly and accommodating. Booking and payment were easy and Manuel was very prompt in replying to questions. The house is very thoughtfully appointed with a fully equipped kitchen, maps and hiking guides, extra blankets, beach towels, and plenty of wood for the fireplace (we had some cool rainy days). The outdoor space is lovely although we did not get to take advantage of the outdoor grill. The house was clean and well maintained. Parking is easy and secure. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend the house for a family or group of friends.

“comfortable villa”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

people found this review helpful

we enjoyed staying in this beautiful villa. It is a historic house with 3 bedrooms and two modern bathrooms. You can sit on a lovely veranda and enjoy breakfast or have some drinks. There is a dishwasher in the kitchen and the internet is well working and fast. The landlord who lives on the same ground is very nice and helpful. You are allowed to use the owners washing machine and the huge garden. The owners friendly cat and her playful kitten visited us daily. Ponta Delgada is only a short drive and you can also reach the north coast easily. We definitely would stay again.

“A comfortable stay in a stunning property”
Reviewed 16 January 2016 for a stay in August 2015

We enjoyed our stay at Quinta dos Afectos immensely, the owners Manuel and his lovely wife Fernanda are brilliant hosts, welcoming, friendly and helpful but also respectful of guests privacy.

The estate is very large and enjoyable, we loved having such a large and landscaped garden to sunbathe in, there is even a vegetable garden we were invited to pick some delicious greens from!

Personally I loved cooking in the huge kitchen, which is very well equipped, as is the rest of the house. A particularly nice touch is the basket with a choice of soft plaids next to the fireplace, very nice for cozy evenings indoors, thank you Fernanda!

The whole indoors space is tastefully decorated yet simple, the master bedroom is enormous, as is the upstairs bathroom. We enjoyed the quality bedding materials and the incredible views from the large bedroom and bathroom.

We invited some family to stay with us on this trip; they stayed in the downstairs bedrooms and enjoyed them a lot, the house is very large and has a great layout both for families and groups of friends.

We really didn't have any complaints at all, the place is great, the view beautiful, the hosts lovely, Manuel even got us a great deal on the car rental! Only one criticism: it's hard to book, because it is so often occupied!

“Charming Home”
Reviewed 11 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Our recent trip to the Azores was wonderfully enhanced by our stay at this charming home.
We enjoyed a taste of the rural countryside in a rustic setting. I found the country kitchen to be an inspiration due to a marvelous gas stove with electric oven and my partner perfected his fire-making skills utilizing the heatilator-fireplace which created ambience while taking the winter chill out of the air. The owner, Manuel, is a friendly host who provided many herbs and a wood supply, and will offer additional services such as fresh eggs & meal preparation. The photos on trip advisor are true to the home, beautiful grounds and vistas, vaulted ceilings with original timber, modern bathroom facilities, etc.
I recommend this choice to gain an appreciation of the island.
