Great place for a family stay

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 5, grandparents, parents and a toddler. The house served us very well for our 6 nights on Sao Miguel. It is well located, close both to the airport and Ponta Delgada.

Manuel helped arrange car rental for us, and answered any questions that we had. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Perfect accommodation for an amazing trip

  • 5 of 5

From the start the booking expeeejnce was very easy and simple. Manuel emailed and replied very quickly with information and directions for the property as well as helping us with finding a car rental company and organised everything for us.

The villa is easy to find and very central location to the whole island. The property is located in a quiet village surrounded by lovely gardens and greenery as well as cats and a donkey as residents.

Inside the property very clean and equipped with everything you need with very spacious three bedrooms, one double in the main room with ensuite with lovely views and the two twin rooms downstairs, one with an ensuite.

I would most definitely come back and stay again and the accommodation is ideal for your visit. The island is Sao Miguel is a wonderful magical place and we will be back soon.

Manuel thank you so much for all your help and assistance and hopefully see you one day soon.

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".

A comfortable stay in a stunning property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Quinta dos Afectos immensely, the owners Manuel and his lovely wife Fernanda are brilliant hosts, welcoming, friendly and helpful but also respectful of guests privacy.

The estate is very large and enjoyable, we loved having such a large and landscaped garden to sunbathe in, there is even a vegetable garden we were invited to pick some delicious greens from!

Personally I loved cooking in the huge kitchen, which is very well equipped, as is the rest of the house. A particularly nice touch is the basket with a choice of soft plaids next to the fireplace, very nice for cozy evenings indoors, thank you Fernanda!

The whole indoors space is tastefully decorated yet simple, the master bedroom is enormous, as is the upstairs bathroom. We enjoyed the quality bedding materials and the incredible views from the large bedroom and bathroom.

We invited some family to stay with us on this trip; they stayed in the downstairs bedrooms and enjoyed them a lot, the house is very large and has a great layout both for families and groups of friends.

We really didn't have any complaints at all, the place is great, the view beautiful, the hosts lovely, Manuel even got us a great deal on the car rental! Only one criticism: it's hard to book, because it is so often occupied!

A charming 300yr old farmhouse with modern amenities

  • 4 of 5

We chose this as our second stop in our 10day trip in Sao Miguel after staying in a beachfront house in Moinhos. We chose this place mainly for our kids who love animals. We weren't disappointed. The kids absolutely enjoyed the animals. We went in December and the heaters and towel warmers were a blessing. The natural fireplace in the living room, the full size kitchen, the spacious bedrooms were all a plus.

About the place: It is located about 1/2 hr away from Ponta Delgada near Fenais da Luz in residential areas. There are grocery stores nearby (Spar) and Sol Mar supermarket where you get everything under the sol(!). Even though there is no direct beachview, we had no complaints since the grounds are well manicured and it was a different experience altogether. Mosteiros and and Sete Cidades are nearby.

Manuel was very helpful and answered all emails before the trip. Directions to the place was fairly easy.

Overall, a nice experience.

A classy country house

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Manuel's classily remodel home for few days in December. Manuel was very friendly and helpful with our need and request during our stay. The property shown just like the pictures, the rooms are clean, spacious and nicely furnished with comfortable beds, millions dollars ocean view from the master bedroom windows. A multi levels garden and parking spaces are found next to the house. The property is located in the rural countryside where you can enjoy the serenity and nature. If you want to explore the option of the countryside with style, this is the choice!

We were nervous when driving on the curly, narrow and unfamiliar streets. But Manuel was very kind to show us the directions and signs. Since driving is not an option in this location, we give 4 stars.
