A PERFECT HOLIDAY HOME

  • 5 of 5
The Rustic House was our perfect holiday home. The rooms were spacious and clean and the views over Vila Franca and the sea magnificent. The house was very well equipped and the gardens beautiful. The owners were delightful with a great deal of local knowledge regarding restaurants, shopping and places to visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful house and very much hope to return one day. We would certainly highly recommend it as a place to stay for anyone visiting Sao Miguel as it is ideally situated for exploring the whole island.

AMAZING VIEWS

  • 4 of 5
The cottage was absolutely lovely and the host is extremely accommodating. We arrived on a very early morning flight and she was there to meet us and allow us into the house by 8a. She even had lovely breakfast items available for us to eat following our long overnight flight. Gorgeous views and wonderful patio to relax on and enjoy the views. Very close to nice little beach area and cafe.

MORE THAN PROMISED

  • 5 of 5
The house is actually bigger than it looks on the photographs, spacious garden with fruit and avocado trees. Quality furniture, fully functional home appliances.
Friendly, helpful and unobtrusive hosts.
We stayed there in march and the weather was great. The house located outside the Vila Franca in a quiet place with a beautiful view. We recommend this property for a big families or for quite a few friends who want spend their holidays together.

THIS PLACE MADE OUR VACATION VERY SPECIAL!

  • 5 of 5
The Rustic House in Vila Franca (VF) was the perfect place to stay while in Vila Franca. All around, we were extremely happy with this place. The house is located high on the hill in VF, overlooking the wonderful small city of VF, the Ilheu, and the atlantic ocean. The house has a a large wrap-around balcony for you to take in the views. We ate breakfast on the balcony each day, also perfect place for a cold glass of vinho verde. The house was clean and large. We have a total of 4 people is at times, it felt too big, but we are not complaining. The owners were very sweet people. You can tell that they wanted us to enjoy all there is to offer in VF and their house. They stocked the refrigerator with goodies (cheese, juice, etc.) that helped us for the first few days. There is a supermarket in town where we were able to buy more food. The owners were very helpful in evaluating local restaurants. The grounds of the house were beautiful. The small garden, variety of flowers, cool stone-work, all make for a enjoyable walk around the property. There were only a few neighbors who lived by the house. We never saw them. It is extremely quiet up at the house. The house is a short ride into the center of VF. VF is a perfect place to stay because of its central location. We were able to visit all parts of the island while staying in VF. Restaurant Atlantico was great! The local wreck fish was superb. We also recommend Garajao in Ribeira Quente. A must see! IN VF, you must go to the place where they make the queijada's do vila franca. The Morgado Family has a bakery in town where they bake fresh queijada's each day. The local beach in VF was perfect for swimming and relaxing. I would highly recommend this property to friend or family. We think we stayed in the one of the best houses in portugal. We are so hapy with our trip. Thanks again for all the memories!

MEHR ERHOFFT

  • 2 of 5
Wir haben uns mehr von diesem Haus erhofft. Der äussere Eindruck war gut, jedoch waren wir über den Zustand des doch nun in die Jahre gekommenen Hauses erschrocken.

Die Zimmer riechen muffig, vor allem die Bäder waren von Schimmel befallen und im Wohnzimmer roch es aufgrund des Kamines permanent wie in einer Räucherstube. Generell ist das Haus sehr in die Jahre gekommen und müsste von Grund auf in Schuss gebracht werden...so mussten wir beispielsweise kniend in der Badewanne duschen, da die Dusche als solche nicht zu benutzen war (Wassertemperatur war nicht einstellbar). Das Bett im oberen Geschoss war komplett durchgelegen und verschaffte uns schlaflose Nächte.

Die untere Etage kann man unseres Erachtens nicht vermieten, da äusserst dunkel und muffig.

Positiv zu erwähnen ist die schöne grosse Terrasse im OG, die eine wunderbare Sicht auf Vila Franca do Campo ermöglicht. Auch die Vermieter sind sehr nett und unkompliziert.

Vila Franca is the old capital with ancient beautiful buildings. The infrastructure is good with super markets, hospital, restaurants etc. Beaches of various sizes incl. one child safe in the middle of Vila Franca. No dangerous currents along the coast.

V.F. has got a micro climate, warmer and more sunny than the rest of the island.

V.F.is strategically placed on the south coast on the middle of the island, with its overwhelming nature all around it.

In the summer, a shuttle commutes to the volcano tip 1/2 mile outside V.F. where you can have a swim in the lagoon. An Aqua Park with various slides and cafeterias is a youth entertainment.

Whale and dolphin safaris can be hired from the well built up Yachting Marina.

Regular and cheap bus connections to the rest of the island.

Other Activities: whale watching and swimming with dolphins
