Vila Franca Do Campo Villa Rental Photos and Description

Rustic Villa Azores. Amazing view and lovely, big garden. Maximum 10 beds.

Are you looking for something a little more exclusive to a great price?

Rustic Villa Azores offers a private house in a "closed condominium" with a 7000 m2 garden. The house is 270 m2 and was built in 1986, on the slopes, overlooking the charming village of Vila Franca do Campo. The garden is full of fruit and flowers, and a joy in it self. Giant, delicious avocados, potatoes, lettuce, tomato, fresh herbs, mango, passion fruit, banana... It is all bio products that you are welcome to take advantage of!

The area is fenced in with electrically operated wrought iron gate.

The building style is rustic with details from marbles, natural stone and tiles. Breakfast patio with stone table and benches under a pergola, outside the kitchen.

80 m2 outside terrace to the south, 110 meters above sea level, with charcoal grill, dining table and an outside lounge.

The master bedroom has direct access to the terrace. Two guest rooms with common toilet and bath room downstairs. The house also has a library with the possibility of adding a bed.

Vila franca do Campo is 15 minutes by car from Ponta Delgada, and the village offers all the ocean and land activities that you find in the capital city.

Golfing in São Miguel is also an experience: There are two fantastic golf courses. Batalha course with 27 holes and Furnas course with 18 holes. These courses are never crowded and you can enjoy a relaxed game of golf. Normally you don't need to book tee time. You reach both golf courses within 20 minutes drive from Vila Franca. Most other ocean/land activities are available in Vila Franca Do Campo, the village below the house.

I do recommend the whale and dolphin safaris, hiking, diving, sailing, surfing, horse back riding, cooking in the ground and of course taking advantage of the island and it's amazing beauty. The Azores was actually voted the most beautiful place in the world, by National Geographic.

I do assure you that our house will make the experience even better.

stunning and cosy

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 6, we spent a short but wonderful week in the villa. Besides its fabulous view, which allow sunny and long breakfasts before starting for a long tourist day, the house offers a very nice family atmosphere, so everybody was pleased to spend time there.

Emilie's welcomed us with very useful and nice tips about places to go and things to do. Among them, we tried the "cozido", a traditional and delicious dish cooked in the hot earth of Furnas lake, which allowed us to discover the azorean lovely cooking with herbs and vegetables from the garden.

Vila Franca is very conveniently located to visit all the interesting spots, sea, lakes and hikes, and has quite a little charm of its own.

Amazing and very relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house and surrounding property is amazing. We have stayed on the Island before but this property and Emilie's hospitality should not be missed. From the amazing vistas, catered meals, restutants recommendations and ideally situated acess to the island it would be difficult to recommend another property. We did blow a fuse which was addressed in a very timely fashion. We truly felt like we were at our own home....Our family on the island also raved about or accommodations!

Obrigado Emilie

Beautiful home with a wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this gorgeous home in Villa Franca do Campo! The house itself was lovely, spacious and comfortable, set up on a hill overlooking the sweet town below and the ocean beyond. We were a party of 8, comprised of 2 families with a total of 4 children; the home was quite big enough for us all and can easily accommodate a large group. The house was well-equipped, with a full kitchen including any items you might need and a functioning washing machine. Emilie was a wonderful host; she is very organized and thoughtful. She met us at the nearby gas station and then showed the way to her home. From there she made sure we had everything we needed and had even left the kitchen with food (including delicious local jam and cheese!). She was so very gracious and spent quite a while telling us about all the best places to go in the island. Our favorite destinations and activities were not mentioned in the guidebook... they were recommendations from her! The location of the home is near the center of the island, which was great for being able to explore sites on both the east and west sides of the island... and so many beautiful places there are to explore on Sao Miguel! Our favorite activity was to fill a large cooking pot with cozido items (cabbage, carrots, potatoes, sausage, etc.), collect an old sheet, scissors and twine, and bring these items to Furnas (all supplies are at the villa!). At Furnas, for 3 euros the folks there will deposit your cooking pot into a geothermal vent... where your dinner will cook for hours (4 hours vegetarian... 6 hours with meat). They remove your pot and there you have a naturally cooked, delicious traditional dinner! Thank you for the suggestion, Emilie!

A perfect holiday home

  • 5 of 5

The Rustic House was our perfect holiday home. The rooms were spacious and clean and the views over Vila Franca and the sea magnificent. The house was very well equipped and the gardens beautiful. The owners were delightful with a great deal of local knowledge regarding restaurants, shopping and places to visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful house and very much hope to return one day. We would certainly highly recommend it as a place to stay for anyone visiting Sao Miguel as it is ideally situated for exploring the whole island.

amazing views

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was absolutely lovely and the host is extremely accommodating. We arrived on a very early morning flight and she was there to meet us and allow us into the house by 8a. She even had lovely breakfast items available for us to eat following our long overnight flight. Gorgeous views and wonderful patio to relax on and enjoy the views. Very close to nice little beach area and cafe.

More than promised

  • 5 of 5

The house is actually bigger than it looks on the photographs, spacious garden with fruit and avocado trees. Quality furniture, fully functional home appliances.

Friendly, helpful and unobtrusive hosts.

We stayed there in march and the weather was great. The house located outside the Vila Franca in a quiet place with a beautiful view. We recommend this property for a big families or for quite a few friends who want spend their holidays together.

Vila Franca is the old capital with ancient beautiful buildings. The infrastructure is good with super markets, hospital, restaurants etc. Beaches of various sizes incl. one child safe in the middle of Vila Franca. No dangerous currents along the coast.

V.F. has got a micro climate, warmer and more sunny than the rest of the island. strategically placed on the south coast on the middle of the island, with its overwhelming nature all around it.

In the summer, a shuttle commutes to the volcano tip 1/2 mile outside V.F. where you can have a swim in the lagoon. An Aqua Park with various slides and cafeterias is a youth entertainment.

Whale and dolphin safaris can be hired from the well built up Yachting Marina.

Regular and cheap bus connections to the rest of the island.

Other Activities: whale watching and swimming with dolphins
