Our family was celebrating my parents' 50th wedding anniversary on Sao Miguel Island, a place we had never visited before. We stayed at this lovely house, located just on the outskirts of central Vila Franca. The owner had the place set up very nicely for us when we arrived, including a basket full of fresh island fruit, a bottle of vinho tinto, a fresh lemon pound cake and the refrigerator stocked with cheeses and marmalade.
All of the kitchen appliances are modern and worked well. The wi-fi worked flawlessly, even upstairs. The patio was a great place to take our meals and snacks, and is a wonderful place for viewing Ilheu Franca and the ocean. On a clear day, Santa Maria Island is visible. This is a great vacation rental! more
