The Azores region

S. Miguel Island, the biggest of all Azorean islands, is a truly nature's paradise. You can walk around the lakes, visit magic gardens, have a bath on natural hotsprings, swim with dolphins, go on a whale watching tour, see volcanos, go to the beach, walk in the middle of the woods for birdwatching, geocaching, hiking, discovering waterfalls or just relaxing.

The weather is very unpredictable. Never too cold; never too hot. Please, bring a rain coat and count the rainbows :) Prepare yourself for having the four seasons in the same day.

After booking guests will be provided with some suggestions: places to go and activities to do.


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.

Supermarkets and restaurants are in the center of the village (about 2 minutes away driving).

"Perfect stay in a great surrounding"

We enjoyed the very warm welcome by Carla and Joao who made us feel at home right away. Our room upstairs was big enough for two and very clean. Every morning Carla and Joao gave us precious hints of what to explore and where to spend the day. Thank you very much!

"Excellent accueil, très bien placé, superbe maison"

Nous avons été vraiment très bien accueillis avec nos enfants par nos hôtes. Une de nos meilleures expériences de chambre d'hôtes. La maison offre une vue magnifique. Les petits déjeuners étaient excellents, les chambres modernes très agréables, pas très spacieuses, mais suffisamment surtout lorsqu'on passe le temps à l'extérieur. La salle de bains est partagée pour les 3 chambres. Nous avons eu les meilleurs conseils pour profiter des plus beaux sites à proximité. Povoaçao est un lieu de séjour plus approprié que Furnas à notre avis, (où nous voulions séjourner au départ).

"Excellent accueil et vue magnifique sur l'océan!"

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable grâce à l'accueil très chaleureux de Carla et Joao. Les nombreux conseils donnés nous ont aidé à visiter des lieux auxquels nous n'aurions pas pensé. Ce fut une rencontre et un séjour inoubliables.

"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!

"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.
