Six friends traveled to Sao Miguel and stayed at Maria and Paulo's villa. It was a perfect house for our stay. The house was very clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed the outdoor space and pool. The owners live next door. They were helpful while still respectful of our privacy. The house is located just up the hill from a black sand beach and only a few miles (3.5?) east of Ponta Delgada. The property is gated and had ample room for parking our rental van. The house is well stocked with dishware, pots and pans, etc.
We hope to have an opportunity to visit again!
Thank you Maria (Graca) and Paulo!
