Overview

About the property

Two bedrooms, large living room, terrace, garden, sleeps 4-5 people

A dream home, located on the north side of the island of S. Miguel conveniently situated near the SCUT which makes all kinds of tours and discoveries easily accessible by car. Close to everything, once it is centered on the island. In the middle of a paradisiac field, in the vicinity of a working farm and with the proximity of the village and the sea.

Recently remodeled the house of volcanic rocks (traditional build) is at its best. It was erected in basalt by a landowner in a place of great beauty, that has been preserved until today. It has a beautiful sea view, which extends west to the tip of the island, providing magnificent sunsets, and also an insight into the mountain, which contains the beautiful Lake of Fire.

It is 4km away from the city of Ribeira Grande in a place called Ribeirinha.

A great find!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a weeks stay at this delightful cottage. It was a great find and I feel that we couldn't have chosen better. The cottage is ideally situated, being somewhat central, which makes it a great base to explore the island of São Miguel easily. The cottage has everything that you could need and it comes with fantastic views.

António is a fantastic host and even though we never got to meet him in person, he was always contactable and provided us with lots of information on the cottage and the surrounding areas, as well as suggestions for days out and things to do.

We were left in the capable hands of Ricardo and his wife, who were also nearby and on hand if ever we should need anything (which we didn't).

I would highly recommend this property, you will not be disappointed!!!

Thank you once again António for making our first trip to the Azores a pleasurable and memorable one.

All the best,

Richard & Fréd

Outstanding rental!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for 9 nights and cannot recommend this vacation rental highly enough. The house is very clean, well-appointed, and comfortable. Antonio, the owner, has thought of every detail to assure an enjoyable visit, from making sure that the house has everything you could need for a comfortable stay, making sure that guests are welcomed personally and shown the house and property, and for preparing a vast amount of information regarding stores, restaurants, and excellent detailed tours of the island. He is also excellent at communicating and made sure that all of our questions were answered fully. Some of the things that we loved about the house: it has a wonderful sense of place and family history. Staying there did not feel like staying in an anonymous place that could be anywhere, and we enjoyed the charming atmosphere of this traditional home. We also appreciated the peaceful setting and outdoor space. Sitting on the porch with a glass of wine after a busy day, or cooking dinner on the outdoor grill and eating on the stone table while viewing incredible sunsets allowed us to fully relax and enjoy our environment after a busy day of sightseeing. And the location of the house is perfect for excursions throughout the island. One of the reasons we really appreciated the convenient location is that some places need to be revisited, either because of incredible beauty, or because of the changeable weather of the environment allowing for different views on different days. The house is in a quiet and private location, yet close to Ribeira Grande, with its opportunity for shopping. Having a well-appointed kitchen was so helpful in cooking "at home" as much as desired, or for making picnic lunches to eat while touring the island. We are thrilled that we decided to rent this cottage and are very much hoping that we can return, both to the island and the cottage, for another visit in the future. We highly recommend this vacation rental!

Perfect place for living at Sao Miguel.

  • 5 of 5

The best traditional and typical azores portuguese house which I ever seen with excellent location for traveling around the island. Adorable nature outside, unforgettable sunsets, ocean view, magnificent hydrangeas, splendid house interior and ideal location to main driveway.

Lots of thanks to open-armed owner Antonio who helped us in any questions and made our staying in his house at the highest level.

Also we used the car which was a nice bonus to the house.

Charming cottage with everything you'll need

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little house with traditional architecture and furnishings. It is in a central location and served as a home base for visiting all areas of the island. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything we needed. Great views of the rolling hills and ocean and plenty of privacy. The owner and caretaker were more than accommodating and very easy to reach before and during our stay. We highly recommend this property.
