Located in a gated community of villas along the south (warmest) shore of Sao Miguel, this unique property turned out to be perfectly located for our three week stay on the island. The Villa is two stories high with three comfortable bedrooms, two bathrooms with showers and spacious living areas. We love to take medium-length walks before we venture out to tour, and this Villa provided us many choices on safe, paved areas of the beautiful Caloura coast. The owner of the property Joao (John) Moura gave us a warm and helpful welcome when we arrived and answered our questions willingly for our three amazing weeks of discovery. Our family loved the upstairs pool table and the upper deck with its 180 degree view of the ocean. We booked our holiday in the off-season to get a better rate and soon discovered that ferries to any of the nearby islands were not running until May when the majority of the tourists arrive and the island gets busy. All of the island sights worth visiting were
open for visitors year-round with warm and helpful English guides who shared their super-friendly Azorean hospitality. This is a great family Villa that is kid-friendly with the pool below (only open in warmer months) and also amazing for couples who want to see the beautiful volcano island!
