This was my first vacation to the Azores and I wanted to make sure it would be relaxing and memorable. We got in on July 3rd and as soon as the house was cleaned we went in and were pleasantly surprised. It was clean and well maintained and had many antiques. I got a sense of history there, the beautiful stone walls and doorways as well as modern features like the dishwasher and lovely master bath with a wonderful jacuzzi. The view from the master bath is breathtaking! I think the thing that made our stay the best was the kindness and generosity of Manuel and Fernanda. They constantly brought over home made things for us to try, fresh bread, sugar cane Manuel had picked from his own garden, and Fernanda even made my wife and daughter ear rings to remember them by. I can't say enough about this place and our time there, I can only describe it as, "A hug for the soul".
