“Perfect location ”
Reviewed 17 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We stayed for five nights and could happily have stayed longer. The location was perfect for us, at the end of a minor road in the south coast village of Manadas.

The apartment was lovely; well-equipped and comfortable. We didn't use the living room as the ocean views are from the bedroom. If we were sitting reading we generally sat at the table & chairs in the garden. The views across to Pico island and mountain were spectacular.

However, what really made this a truly wonderful experience for us were Maria and Rosa. Maria's English is excellent and she is a mine of interesting information about the area (and a lot of other things!) Although Rosa didn't speak English and we don't speak Portuguese, we still managed to have some lovely 'conversations'!

It's a big plus having the washing machine. Don't miss swimming in the natural swimming pool down in the harbour.

“lovely holiday”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Clean, spacious, comfortable apptmt with everything that 2 people could need. Right by the sea. Sea views, 150m from the sea swimming spot.. Very beautiful, very quiet and peaceful location. Need a hire car to get around. South coast near the middle of the island so easy access to all parts with a hire car. Perfect if you like walking and trekking and wild swimming. No shops near so stock up in Velas or Ursalina. Fish man and food van visit everyother day but not at regular times. The fresh fish is amazing. There is a little garden a bit up the lane with fantastic views to Pico and table, chairs and BBQ. I would go again.

“A beautiful view and garden, but a really small apartment”
Reviewed 6 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013
2
people found this review helpful

The location of the house is beautiful, the garden is really nice, and the neighbours very helpful.

Luckily, because the apartement is really too small for 5 persons: it would be ok for 3 persons (a couple with a small child for instance) or even 2, because there is very little privacy.

So really, for 5 people, the price is much overated (it is the same price as in Paris, where you would get a much bigger flat).

But well, it was in summer, the weather was good, so we went walking, swiming, and in the garden...
