Charming, Beatiful and Cozy!
We stayed two weeks at this property and enjoyed every second. Armando and Mary, although they were not present, kept in touch and gave us great advices on where to go to enjoy our stay. The property is spacious and well kept, the fireplace was a very nice touch for the colder April nights and you have everything you need in the house. I would definitely recommend this charming property and might very well be renting it again in the future.
Dear David and Rebekah!!!. We always give our best for our guests to feel at home. Our guests are all special for me and Mary, and we consider all of our guests " "Friends for Life."

LOTS OF HAPPINESS for Your Future Together.

A Wonderful 3 Weeks!
We thoroughly enjoyed three wonderful weeks in April 2016 based in Armando's beautiful and very well located house (Vivenda A) on Sao Miguel. The location has a expansive view of the ocean, Ponta Delgada and the green hills above. It is conveniently located to tour the entire island but being slow travelers, we still left some for a future trip!
The surrounding gardens are perfect for a stroll and we enjoyed both the sweet and sour oranges that we found in the garden. The kitchen is well furnished and we only had to add a few spices and a plastic flipper to spare the new-looking non-stick frying pan.
The house is large, a good size for us (a couple with an active but elderly mother), and sparkling clean. The living room furniture wasn't the most comfortable and could use a refresh. The TV had a good selection of channels with many in English (some subtitled in Portuguese). The WiFi worked well for our collection of tablets, phones and a laptop.
We had lots of towels and the luxury of two bath/shower rooms was appreciated.
The fireplace worked well and we used lots of the supplied dry firewood. It can be a little damp and chilly on April evenings in the Azores.
Armando lived in the other house on the property for the first two weeks of our stay. He gave us a quick guided tour of the area. It was a perfect introduction to key information for living in Cabouco -- bakeries, groceries, local bananas, restaurants, the layout of Lagoa and connections to the rest of the island. He was very attentive and helpful but discreet and very conscious of not invading our privacy. After Armando returned to Montreal he called us once to make sure that everything was going well and on that call we met Mary who had had to stay in Montreal so we didn't meet her in person.
We hope to continue our exploration of Sao Miguel, but next time we'd change it up and travel a little later in the year.
Sorry for the rather late review. We've been dealing with a lot of medical issues since our return and are just now getting our heads back above water.
Fantastic and Memorable
Dear Armando and Mary,
The Acores are truly awesome, and your place is a paradise we highly recommend to anyone seeking the beauty and natural serenades of a countryside getaway. The Vivenda Loureiro is like a garden park with the various plants and trees that make your chateau so fascinating. The house is beautiful and roomy and well supplied with all amenities. We had great weather and got to see a lot of the island’s treasures. We were amazed at the number of birds flying by and I got some great photos of the hawks, gulls, and a bat at dusk. We send our heartfelt thanks for your generous help in making our stay a memorable highlight of our life. Bless you and your family, Ronaldo and Eduarda R. Aug. 2016

The house and property was amazing and the location on the island was ideal! Our weather was cool and damp so we didn't get to enjoy the grounds around the house but it was perfect weather for the furnas! Absolutely beautiful island with wonderful people and Armando and Mary were so accommodating with offers to pick up at the airport and excellent suggestions for restaurants and things to do. Would highly recommend the house and Armando is very kind and helpful to deal with, it was so easy! I big thanks to their caretakers Fernando, carmine and lizette, wonderful lovely people!! I can't say enough, except I look forward to going back 😄

LITTLE PARADISE WITH 5 STARS!
Myself, my wife and our 2 adult teens have wonderful memories of our vacation at this “little paradise”.
We strongly recommend this vacation house to come visit with your family the beautiful Sao Miguel Island and we rate our stay with 5 stars for several reasons:
The estate is only about 15 minutes' drive from the airport, centrally located on the island in a very quiet village.
Perfect location for exploring by car the many wonderful places and sights to be found on this beautiful island.
The beach is reachable within five minutes by car, also close to restaurants and supermarket in Lagos.
As soon as you pass the gate of the property, it feels like entering a little paradise.
Very large manicured garden with beautiful flowers and trees, amazing views of the ocean and island
We stayed in House B, also very comfortable and plenty of room with a spacious 2nd floor where the teens slept.
The house had all the comforts of home with a well equipped kitchen
Perfectly located veranda, perfect facilities to barbecue and cozy outdoor dining in the garden. Everything was very clean
3, Hospitality (the most important reason):
Armando, you really showed us the beautiful island through your own eyes.
We still enjoy and remember the contacts with the local people, the little trips that we made together, the helpful hints and in particular the organization of the fishing experience on the ocean at night.
Thank you so much for making our vacation so wonderful and a memorable one for Céline and Jonas.
Our only regret is that your lovely wife Mary was not there.
We really hope everything goes better
Hugs from all of us... , we are sure that we see each other back in the near future!
Dear Mario and Lovely Family....It has been a great pleasure to meet you and spend time with your Family. We are always excited to meet our guests, and give our best for them to feel at home, and feel their friendship long past the days they stayed with us. Our guests are all special for me and Mary and we consider all of guests " Friends for life." Thank you for choosing our "little paradise" and... hope to see you again in the future. Sincerely,
Armando & Mary and Family
Quiet and peaceful
Booking was smooth - Armando patiently answered all of our questions. The estate is only about 15 minutes' drive from the airport and just off the highway. It is a bit tricky to find it but Armando's map made it easier. There are 2 houses on the estate and we are staying in house B. There was no guests in House A so we pretty much had the whole campus to us. Air is fresh and birds were chirping, starry sky at night, we felt as if we were in a different world. Ms Ana and her daughter met us at the property and helped us settled in. The 2 houses shared a washer and we hung our clothes outside. house B is spacious and has a 2nd floor that can sleep another 4 ppl. We didn't need it and only stayed on the 1st floor. The house is in a very quiet location yet just minutes to highway and downtown Lagoa with shops and restaurants. Armando also called a couple of times to make sure we were OK, which we appreciated very much. We highly recommend this vacation house!
Cabouco is a village from the city of Lagoa, the nearby hamlet is a peaceful community. In the sloping landscape is where these country homes are located. To the south within 2 Km
of the house, the town of Lagoa has a supermarket (Continente- Modelo), where you will find everything you need. The fishing port of Lagoa 'Porto dos Carneiros' offers you different choices of restaurants specializing in fresh seafood or meat daily. At approximately 2 km from the houses you will find the famous Lagoa swimming pools ( sea waters pools or swim in the Ocean). A drive of 5 minutes east will take you up to the mountain crater off Lagoa do Fogo, fire lake for some breath taking views of the different parts of the island. Descending to the other side of the mountain, you will come to the Caldeira Velha, a warm waterfall and pool hidden in an enchanted valley of fern trees and steaming water streams. If golf is your passion, two fantastic courses are available, one east and one west of the property; both are within a thirty minute drive. This accommodation is conveniently close to all necessities and yet within the natural and peaceful environment. After a day of exploring this beautiful and natural paradise (Ilha Verde) known as the Green Island, of Sao Miguel, you will feel an overwhelming peace in your private retreat.
