I can't say enough good things about the Quinta. My husband and I stayed in the two-bedroom cottage for a month, with our daughter and son-in-law joining us for a week. The cottage itself is perfect for two couples, and is beautifully designed and furnished. The gardens are incredibly beautiful, with all kinds of flowers, trees, and sculptures. And the host and hostess are absolutely lovely. Beyond the Quinta, I'd like to mention how much we loved Sao Miguel. It was our first trip to the Azores. The island is peaceful, mainly rural, with spectacular scenery and hiking trails. I would return in a heartbeat.
