Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Porto Formoso, Sao Miguel, Azores
All the comfort you need for a beach stay. The ideal place to rest at the end of the day, after enjoying the beach, that is just 2 minutes away, or after a day exploring our wonderful island. It’s a two story house, with 3 bedrooms ( two with double beds and one with two single beds) and two bathrooms.

Perfect for family vacations, or just a couple, this house has a great living room, where you can play snooker, watch some Tv or have dinner (made in the barbecue that you'll find outside). Even in the rainy days you can enjoy the covered patio and the quiet of this small village.

Please notice that there's no washing machine available at the house. The house is located very close to the beach, in an area where you wont find shops, just two restaurants. If you need to do some shopping you'll have to go to the nearest city (Rib...

About the neighbourhood
Porto Formoso was, until recently, a secret summer paradise, held by locals that had their summerhouses there. Now you'll find more people visiting because of the great restaurants and the amazing beach (Praia dos Moinhos) but still is less crowded than most of the other beaches in the island.
Getting around
We recommend a rental car since public transportation is scarce
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: João Paulo II Airport: 33.0 km
From the Airport take the higway towards Ribeira Grande. Take the second exit to Ribeira grande (right after passing the exit to Lagoa). Keep on the higway towards Ribeira Grande/Furnas. When arriving at the roundabout keep on the right lane and exit to Nordeste/Povoação/Furnas. Keep on the main road until you see a street sign indicating Porto Formoso exit at your left.
Descend towards Porto Formoso and, at the first crossing, take the exit on your left (follow the street signs for the beach). After passing the parking area the house is on the main street, on your left, right before the restaurant Maré Cheia.
