“Beautiful Peaceful place to stay”
Reviewed 24 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We have just returned from this property having never been to the Azores before. If you like clubs lots of restaurants and all mod con's then this place is not for you. However if you like peace and quiet stunning scenery and are willing to drive through some pretty narrow and steep streets into little villages then this is your perfect destination.
The house has everything you need to cater for yourselves and is very clean. The only downside was this house was advertised with two bathrooms but this is actually incorrect. It has one full bathroom downstairs and a hot water shower on a balcony on the lower balcony. This was disappointing as there is only 1 toilet, so you do have to go downstairs at night. I thought this may have been more of an issue as there was five of family and friends in our party but we managed.
It's a typical Portuguese house and it soon felt like home. There are very few choices of restaurants nearby so we did cook on several occasions and had a couple of barbecue's. The balcony is lovely to sit and eat breakfast and watch the rollers come in on Mohinos beach. There are some lovely walks nearby and some stunning scenery
It's like going back in time in most of the villages we wondered why we could not get fresh milk
In the supermarkets as the island is covered in cows but it's delivered to residents early in the morning in milk churns on horses or flat bed trucks. An eye opener for us Manchester folk who take most things for granted these days.
Overall we had a lovely holiday in this relaxing beautiful place, Give it try you won't be sorry!
