The Azores Archipelago is highly well shaped lakes well adorned with all sorts of plants and flowers. Amazing views on the top of the mountains over land, the see and sometimes over seaside's. Deep green craters born out washed out vulcanos, landscapes and sky's that have kept their purity. A country live with melodies of silence to discover.

The beaches of the biggest island are a mixed bag, but all of them remain incredibly picturesque, showing steep cliffs that plunge into the deep blue waters of the Atlantic.

Water sports like sailing, windsurfing, surfing and diving are a easy to practice. There are little ports all over the island.

Whale watching, is particularly popular. Trips whale watching can be taken from any one of the separated ports on the island.

Location description from owner

The Azores region

Vivenda Xavier is situated at the little

fisherman village named Porto Formoso

(the marvellous port).

Just about 3 minutes from the vivenda you'l find is the local beach Praia dos Moinhos. A very particular small beach with outstanding sanitary facilities.

Not far away you may enjoy a good cup of tea at Chá de Porto Formoso. One of the two old family business in Europe involved in tea production. This, all fashioned with the little fisherman port and the local church from 1509, turns this little place into a unique spot in Europe. The inhabitants make their living today predominantly from agriculture, cattle breeding, and fishing.

Ponta Delgada

It takes about 30 minutes to drive from the local airport,

30 minutes from the capital Ponta Delgada and 10 minutes from Ribeira Grande, the second largest city on São Miguel. Ribeira Grande is known for its beautiful historic centre, the northern beaches known for windsurfing, as well as the better access point to Lagoa do Fogo crater lake.

Willing to practice some sport? Just 15 minutes by car to the north-east you'll find the Furnas golf course. This course was originally created by Mackenzie Ross as only having nine holes. In 1986 Cameron Powell extended them so successfully to the regular 18 that all the new holes feel as though it was designed as one initial course. The course is located in the Furnas valley which is famous for its tropical vegetation and hot springs together with its breathtaking views typical to the Azores. The fairways are undulating and mainly lined with trees providing an interesting game. The excellent greens tend to be elevated making them just that bit more of a challenge.

“Perfect Stay in The Azores”

Reviewed 14 Mar 2014

We were very pleased with the 6 nights we stayed at Vivenda Xavier in Porto Formoso on Sao Miguel Island in the Azores. The house had everything we required for an easy, comfortable stay. It is located in a small quiet village with no nightlife, so if you want quiet this is for you. Stating in March the weather is not beach weather, but the beach Praia dos Moinhos is a short walk away, as are 2 restaurants - the snack bar on the beach where we had a nice dinner the 1st night and Mare Chaea, a few metres further along the road where we dined on another night. Both served us good reasonably priced meals. The house is on two levels with sleeping (2 bedrooms) and washrooms (2) on the street level, and living/dining & kitchen one floor lower. Built into a hill, you have great views from both levels. There is a 3rd upper level, with another bedroom, which we did not use. Kitchen is well stocked with utensils, patio with gas burner as well. Used the washer & dryer no problems. Cool when we arrived, and used the modern electric wall heaters in the living room and bedroom(s). Wifi was fast and reliable. We would not hesitate to recommend this rental to friends & family. Owner Luis contacted us by phone on arrival and again a few days later to make sure we had everything to our liking. Thanks Luis!

It feels great to share our property! Especially with those who enjoy the place that we love so much! Thanks for being our guest and for your kind review.
