Azore Ladie's Adventure 2016

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 2 other American female friends recently returned from our first amazing trip to the Azores! This was the second home we stayed at during our time on Sao Miguel, we stayed at two different areas of the island to make the most of our time. This home is everything that the pictures show and more! When we arrived Paulo (Owner) met us to go over the basics, he was extremely friendly and helpful during our entire stay. He provided some complimentary meat, cheese, and bread when we arrived and fresh bread was delivered every morning! We spent the majority of our time on the beautiful patio, even when it was raining we enjoyed the covered patio and outdoor cooking. The sleeping accommodations were perfect for 3 people, there are 3 beds. One full size bed downstairs and 2 beds upstairs in a loft (1 Full, 1 Single). We adored the town of Faial Da Terra, it is small, gorgeous, and friendly! There is only one market, one café, and one bar. We made most of our meals at the house so we could enjoy the patio. There was a Festa happening in town while we were there and everyone was very welcoming. One of our highlights for this trip was the hike up to the Salto do Prego waterfall, it is well worth the hike! The trail literally starts right in front of the house, the trail map is across the street. We were lucky, we went mid week and there was hardly anyone else on the trail. We noticed that on the weekends the trail became busier. The only tiny drawback to this location is that the roads getting to Faial Da Terra are very winding, taking longer than expected to get places. We would gladly return to this home in the future! Thanks again Paulo for sharing your beautiful home!

Enchanted stone house in a quiet neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 1 week stay in this enchanted little stone house. We found in the clean house everything we needed. We enjoyed the outside canopy/kitchen including sink, BBQ, gas stove and sitting area. The view from the balcony over Faial da Terra towards the ocean is beautiful and the walking trail starting just on your doorstep takes you to 2 lovely waterfalls and to great views over the island and its coast.

Paulo is a very, very friendly and courteous host who welcomed us at the airport with the keys, a map of Sao Miguel and clear directions where to go. After his work he came around the house, showed us everything and equipped us with the basics: A bottle of azorean wine and some food. There is also a mobile phone in the house to call Paulo whenever needed.

Recommended to visit is Ribeira Quente 30 minutes away with a great black sand beach for swimming and a really good fish restaurant, Ponta da Garajau.

Thank you, Paulo, for everything!

Jolie maison traditionnelle au calme, hôte aux petits soins

  • 5 of 5

Maison traditionnelle au calme dans un petit village de bord de mer ancré dans la montagne.

Points positifs :

- accueil incroyable de Paulo, qui a rendu notre arrivée beaucoup plus facile

- terrasse extérieure très agréable, avec possibilité de cuisiner

- charme de l'ancien, construction traditionnelle en pierres volcaniques

- bien équipé (machine à laver, cafetière, barbecue, etc.)

- au départ d'une randonnée sympa, avec baignade au pied d'une cascade dans la forêt

(Petits) points négatifs :

- lit qui grince

- attention à la consommation d'eau chaude car petit ballon

Super séjour, nous recommanderions sans hésiter cette location à nos proches.

Authentieke woning, perfect verblijf!

  • 5 of 5

Wij hebben 5 dagen verbleven in deze authentieke woning in klein dorpje, Faial da Terra. Hebben genoten van het huis en de volledige afgesloten tuin. Buitenkeuken onder de overkapping. Perfecte plek voor een relaxt verblijf. Mooie wandeling naar Salto do Prego start voor de deur!
