The Azores region
Povoação was the first portuguese settlement of the island after it's discovery, in 1432. It's a small but nice village, with some historical buildings, like the church next to the sea. The village offers some supermarkets and restaurants.
The house is located in a higher point of the village, in a quiet neighborhood. That's why the view over the Atlantic is magnificent. Close to the house (about 10 minutes walking) there is a long gravel road, surrounded by trees and hydrangeas, great spot for jogging or just for a relaxing walk.

"The only place in the world to enjoy peacfully grazing rabits in the backyard while taking your morning shower!"
It is hard to express the feelings we still have in our hearts after our stay in Carla's house in Povoacao and in the Azores as a whole. This is the best host, place, stay and service we ever had. Carla is a beautiful and warm person, so hospitable and caring. She and Joao were really helpful while we were trying to organize our daily schedule to visit and see the amazing spots in the island.
The house is modern in exterior and interior design and is very spacious. A lot of space in each corner of the house. It is just amazing to live there. Carla has carefully chosen the place for the property and that is why it has such a wonderful view.
Oh, and the sweet little rabits. It is incredibly beautiful to have your morning shower in the big bright bathroom and watching through the window how the small rabits are grazing quietly and peacefully.
We only regret that we had not enough time to enjoy Zeus(the dog) and the two lovely cats. We were coming back after sunset and every time too tired and also was too late to play with them.
Lots of vivid memories.
Warm regards from Bulgaria!

Thanks for your review!
I'm surprised that such experienced travellers don't understand the concept of B&B. All my listings have those initials on the title to make clear that the guests are not renting the whole house. Besides that, there's a paragraph in the description insisting on this subject. Quoting: "Please, notice: I'm not renting the whole house. It's a B&B at my place, and I rent separately three bedrooms, so the guests won't be alone in the house."
I don't know where you got the idea of not making noise after 19.30h. In the house rules I ask the guests to not make noise from 00.00 until 07.30am. Maybe you mixed 'am' with 'pm'...
The dog is friendly and you seemed to like him; he's on the leach in a very restritc area, which represents a very small part of the property.
Next time you book a place to stay, make sure you read carefully the description in order to avoid unpleasant situations both for you and the hosts.

"Dear hosts in a beautiful house"
It's a nice and spacious house with beautiful view from the garden. The village is in a beautiful place, but a little far on the east.
The hosts are dear and very helpful. You get delicious home-made bread and cakes every morning.

"Way above average!"
São Miguel is one of the most beautiful islands in the Azores, and Carla's place is one of the best of it. Carla herself is such a great hostess always available when needed giving us good hints… More
