We had a wonderful time on Sao Miguel in the Azores in February no less with a 5 night stay at this wonderful stone cottage with amazing views of the Atlantic and surrounding verdant hills. Marco was a wonderful and accommodating host, greeting us when we arrived and ensuring everything in the house was in working order. We especially appreciated the internet which was a mobile hotspot for our adventures. The house has lots of room and amenities making our stay a relaxing one. It was easy to get around the island from this central location. Markets, cafes, bakeries, and restaurants were in easy driving distance from the house. I highly recommend this house for your vacation getaway on Sao Miguel.
I (Dave) stayed for 3 weeks to escape the Canadian winter and to get some biking and hiking exercise. My wife, sister and 2 daughters joined me for the last week to tour. The ladies rated the house and extensive grounds excellent, particularly the log fireplace in the living room. The rural location, set in the volcanic hills near the village of Cabouco was very beautiful and I did a lot of interesting bicycling on quiet well surfaced roads. The January weather was great for outdoor activity, daytime highs about 17 to 19 C, overnight about 14 C, very little rain, overnight, and plenty of sun. We had only very minor problems, and the owners, Armando and Mary were only a phone call away, were very helpful and themselves called on neigbours to assist us. We would love to return.
