Fernando & Paula Vieira purchased this cottage in 2006

Quinta de milhafres was named after two couples of black kites (milhafres in portuguese) that chose the place as their habitat. It is a privilegied location of these birds of prey watching, whose similitary with the northern goshawk (açor in portuguese) is the origin of the archipelago's designation.

Quinta de milhafres, a 11,000 sm area from the regional road to the sea, was once property of the district governor joão francisco medeiros de bettencourt . Chroniclers regist the presence of this portuguese noble family on the island since the 18th century. Vila franca do campo museum is located in botelhos manor-house, owned by the same family, which reveals its economical and political outstanding position.

Acquired by its current owners in 2006, the manor house is recent (1995) built in the place of a former factory of chicoria, vegetal used as coffee substitute.

We had a great & relaxiong time on your beautiful island.
Quinta de Milhafres offered us a relaxing home port. Thanks for the organic grown tomatoes & figos.
The local beaches are a must. Ask Fernando & Paul of the 250 step beach. Private & scenic.
We loved the beaches of Água d'Alto & Ponta de Pirâmide.
Lagoa das Furnas, Sete Cidades & Mosteiros are lovely excursions but the lasting impressions of São Miguel are ones of friendly, hospitable, warm & genuine people. The peaceful nature of it's people should be emvlated worlwide.We will take this back home with us.

Ribeira das Taínhas is a quiet scenario, near Vila Franca do Campo, the first capital of São Miguel. In the borderline of the Atlantic Ocean, one can contemplate the waves moving, always new, and always majestic.

The three major beaches located nearby offer excellent bath zones and the ideal conditions to surf - Calhau d’Areia (500m), Vinha d’Areia (3 km) and Água d’Alto (5 km).

Unique pieces of “louça da vila” can be found in the pottery shop of Mestre João Rita, in Vila Franca do Campo. The handicraft is made of red clay, non-glazed, objects used until very recently in the day-to-day lives of the locals.

One of the most emblematic Natural Reserve is located in Vila Franca do Campo municipality: the islet.

Choose Quinta de Milhafres as your starting point and discover:

Lagoa do Congro (6,5km) is a lake of green limpid water surrounded by dense forest.

Lagoa dos Nenúfares (7km) is a lake fully covered with water lilies;

Cerrado dos Bezerros (18 km) is a park with a wide range of flowers and plants species.

Thermal Water Spring in Furnas (20km) are authentic natural spas - Fonte da Dona Beija and the pool of Terra Nostra Park.

Festivals - Vila Franca do Campo:

May (Easter Sunday) – São Miguel Feast, an homage with over 400 years of history. Its highest moment is a procession in honour of work and which presents the range of professions and social classes brought to the island during the settlement period – as brick men, carpenters, shoe men, fishers, liberal professions and many others.

24th of June – São João Feast has its highest moment in the popular parade on the main streets. The dancers with colourful costumes, about 700, march at the sound of popular music, showing creative routines built upon local traditions.

Campaign SOS Shearwater

From October 1st to November 15th, the young shearwaters (night bird that builds its nest on Vila Franca do Campo Islet) leave their nest to their first transatlantic flight. Due to the artificial lights, they lose orientation and become easily car-hit victims.

The campaign SOS Shearwater has being held since 1995 and its mail goal is to engage people in the bird rescue when they are found in the roads on nearby.

Night brigades, guided by specialists, cover the coastline of the municipality searching for young shearwater birds in danger. Everyone can join this initiative and for that one must enrol as a volunteer at the municipal services.

In the 2013 campaign, 6915 young shearwater birds were rescued.
