My wife and I spent three nights in this farmhouse during July 2016. Overall, it was fun and very different than we are used to. There are chickens, turkeys, hens, roosters, ducks, etc. outside. The owner, Hugo visits each day at dusk to feed them and take care of them and makes sure that everything is well. He leaves a cellphone in the residence so that you can call him if there is a problem. Now, about the place. This is a LARGE house. We found it alittle musty but limited ourselves to a small section of the house so that we could stay organized and utilize the one A/C Unit located in the kitchen that seemed to cool that area of the house adequately. The home comes with an electrically operated gate to the driveway which allowed easy access to the car when coming and going. As far as the location of the house, we found it to provide us with an authentic sense of Azorean culture. There is a cattle farm across the street and we could watch the daily work go on from the front terrace in the morning and late afternoon. There is a convenience store within a 5 minute walk from the home. We were able to find a very inviting local restaurant, " O'Pedro's" only a 5 minute drive away and we ate there every night. We also found ourselves taking advantage of the Natural Pools of Quatro Riberias that were also only a 5 minute drive away. The house is centrally located on the North coast and easy to find. Overall, we were satisfied with our stay here and would recommend it to others. We also found the rental price to be very affordable. We are giving this five stars based on the idea that we feel we got what we paid for if not more, and certainly will never forget the fun of living in this unique farm house for a few days.
