Beautiful house and a great location.
The location of the property is amazing. The view of the ocean never gets old. We were able to walk to town and the beach quite easily. Beware that it is hilly and some of the streets lack sidewalks.
The inside of the house is more than adequate. It is a bit dated, but we didn't go to the Azores to sit on a designer couch. There are three bathrooms and 5 bedrooms. No one had any complaints about the beds.The kitchen has plenty of equipment although we used very little. The pool was great. Very clean.
muito obrigada um grupo muito simpáticos
Lovely place. Very easy. Robert is very friendly.
Our family of 8 spent a week here. We had an amazing time. The house was very spacious and the views were fantastic!! The house is close to many great sights. Roberto was a great host! Thank you!
muito obrigada por tudo
grupo muito simpático e muito queridos
Lovely views...Luxury...NOT SO MUCH!!!
Our 4 adults arrived for our 4th trip to the island, to explore, relax and visit some of my family. The house is in agreat area and close to town and many of the great sites. The home is in MUCH need of repairs and is showing its age and lack of maintenance. Most of not all of the blinds in the house are old, rusted and completely broken in some areas. Water marks and peeling paint in the living rroom ceiling indicating an OLD leak is still very evident. The master bath was CRAWLING with ants. Lucky for us, my husband is an exterminator. NO welcome basket, which we have experienced many times in ALL of the other homes we visited over the years, both small and large, no basic needs. Cleaners etc. No sugar, salt etc. another surprise. So off to the market to buy bug spray and cleaner, which the house was in much need of. We spent a few hours cleaning and organizing things for the week and finally relaxed. YOU must try one of our favrite places to eat In Ponta Delgada, Tasca, the place is amazing. Never dissapoints!!! We paid on arrival for the cleaning lady to come mid week for a cleaning and new towels. NO NEW LINENS. While this young lady was as sweet as could be she maybe cleaned for about 1 hour and spent the rest of the day - From 9am -3:30 pm sitting reading magazines and talking with us, even after we let her know that if she was done, she could leave. There is NO DRYER in the house, while it is clearly listed there is NONE and the dishwasher did not work, All of this would have been good to know in advance so we could prepare. While I had been emaling the owener for a few weeks and spoke to him at lengths. As I speak the language and actually am from the acores. I was dissapointed in the condition of this home. Hubby was able to find the source of the ants and BOOM, no more ants! I spoke with the owner regarding all of the issues we had and initially he was very defensive, he did apologize and offered no resolutions! We love the island and wul be back in September just not to this home!
Well this group seemed to me friendly / month are people who think that are Kings
It is believed that have some money month education has nothing:
Not good manners. it is deemed better than everyone and everything.
What happened is just a plot to tarnish my image.
It tells what happened / yes to dent and new month very naive / she cleaned the house
Month this lady cynical told the girl to sit and talk and spent some
Time to talk and did not want to go away. So far so good / now come say
That did not do anything and say the house stevedoring this dirty and a lie that lady
It is deemed that all over agent and cleaner.
To this impeccable villa, and towels are changed by new 6 in 6 months .for new factories, sheets also the same.
Regarding the course ants they eat in the rooms and left the dirty rooms. !!!
Regarding the cleaners had the basics, so if this lady wanted everything, food
I wanted also a lady to rub her back.
Completion of all / did not want to pay the cleaning left the house not as clean as I wanted and desired,.
This lady has no delicacy as I would have / month education for more money than you have in buying is already cot and family ....
Another issue I have no blinds and never ever had / have yes aluminum glass large windows (that I know did not want aluminum rust)
In terms of this painting flawless.
Completion of all as owner of this villa not rent more to this couple
Are very complicated people do not have cot judges is more than all
I recommend this couple a hotel ******* 7 or higher.
For the price you want to pay will never get there.
(Attention I was the victim of this double .why other owners where this double step
Vacation . They were also victims of the same problems and the same thing !!!!
Brilliant week away
We stayed with Roberto for a week at the end of September. The house is amazing. beautiful views over the harbour at Villa Franco do Campo. Roberto is an excellent host and came and picked us up from the airport when our flight was delayed for 3 hours and even posted our spear guns back to us in the UK because we couldn't get them onto our return flight!
He gave us recommendations of places to visit and we had a great time exploring the island. Hot water springs at Furnas (Poça da Beija) and near Lago Fogo (Caldeira Velha) are definitely worth a visit. He also arranged a boat trip with Filipe (Azores Sea Adventures ) where we swam with wild dophins. Didn't see any whales thought but it was the wrong time of year. The tea plantation at Gorreana is a great place to visit for a few hours, free tea(!) and an in-depth experience into the workings of the factory.
The house was brilliant, exactly what we needed for the group. Swimming pool, washing machine, oven and hob. Five large double bedrooms and three bathrooms. We went running every morning to the harbour and yoga on the patio. Easy walk into Vila Franco do Campo which has some lovely restaurants overlooking the harbour and a small supermarket (although large one on the outskirts which is open on sundays).
Can't fault Roberto and his house. Will definitely look to visit again.
Azores S.Miguel Vila franca do campo.
Golf: The breathtaking landscape of the Azores is the perfect setting for the oldest course in the Archipelago, Furnas Golf Club. Famous Scottish architect McKenzie Ross designed the first 9 holes in 1936. The course was increased to 18 holes in 1986 by Cameron & Powell but it is impossible to distinguish the new from the old. A genuine test of golfing skills, the fairways are framed amid stands of majestic Japanese cedars while the greens are fiendishly undulating. The course is situated in one of the most beautiful parts of Sao Miguel Island, set above the Furnas Valley and close to beautiful Furnas Lake with its famous Caldeiras, 15 minutes of Vila franca do campo
unforgettable beauty. Opened in 1996, Batalha Golf Club consists of 27 holes set on a historic site. Built on volcanic rock, the layout was designed in harmony with the natural landscape and has spectacular, sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and the villages below.
