Ribeira das Taínhas is a quiet scenario, near Vila Franca do Campo, the first capital of São Miguel. In the borderline of the Atlantic Ocean, one can contemplate the waves moving, always new, and always majestic.

 

The three major beaches located nearby offer excellent bath zones and the ideal conditions to surf - Calhau d’Areia (500m), Vinha d’Areia (3 km) and Água d’Alto (5 km).

 

Unique pieces of “louça da vila” can be found in the pottery shop of Mestre João Rita, in Vila Franca do Campo. The handicraft is made of red clay, non-glazed, objects used until very recently in the day-to-day lives of the locals.

 

One of the most emblematic Natural Reserve is located in Vila Franca do Campo municipality: the islet.

 

Choose Quinta de Milhafres as your starting point and discover:

Lagoa do Congro (6,5km) is a lake of green limpid water surrounded by dense forest.

 

Lagoa dos Nenúfares (7km) is a lake fully covered with water lilies;

Cerrado dos Bezerros (18 km) is a park with a wide range of flowers and plants species.

 

Thermal Water Spring in Furnas (20km) are authentic natural spas - Fonte da Dona Beija and the pool of Terra Nostra Park.

 

Festivals - Vila Franca do Campo:

May (Easter Sunday) – São Miguel Feast, an homage with over 400 years of history. Its highest moment is a procession in honour of work and which presents the range of professions and social classes brought to the island during the settlement period – as brick men, carpenters, shoe men, fishers, liberal professions and many others.

 

24th of June – São João Feast has its highest moment in the popular parade on the main streets. The dancers with colourful costumes, about 700, march at the sound of popular music, showing creative routines built upon local traditions.

 

Campaign SOS Shearwater

From October 1st to November 15th, the young shearwaters (night bird that builds its nest on Vila Franca do Campo Islet) leave their nest to their first transatlantic flight. Due to the artificial lights, they lose orientation and become easily car-hit victims.

 

The campaign SOS Shearwater has being held since 1995 and its mail goal is to engage people in the bird rescue when they are found in the roads on nearby.

 

Night brigades, guided by specialists, cover the coastline of the municipality searching for young shearwater birds in danger. Everyone can join this initiative and for that one must enrol as a volunteer at the municipal services.

 

In the 2013 campaign, 6915 young shearwater birds were rescued.

Fernando and Paula were so nice and helpful. We had a family emergency and had to shorten our stay in the Azores, and they let us come a few days early on very short notice. They had a lot of great information for us when we arrived and even some yummy welcome treats. The house is perfect for two. The front area down by the coast is SO beautiful!! The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked, and the living area was nice. The house is in a great location too. We were very pleased with our stay here!

Perfect for two, with stunning views out to the ocean, with a beautiful garden. A true taste of the Azores

Great Hosts. They provided information regarding the island, what to see and do and where to eat. The location is central to all parts of the island. The property is peaceful with great views of the ocean. We hiked every day, Furnas hike, Sete Cidades and Lagoon hike, Lagoa Do Fogo (best), Salto Do Prego (beautiful waterfall). Restaurants were great, Ponta Do Garajau, Restaurant Associacao (best steak) and Atlantico (no credit card). Many viewpoints and bathing areas along the island, best to wear a swim suit all day. The hosts also provided us with tomatoes, eggs, bananas, and cucumbers. Kitchen was fully stocked with needed utensils. Thank you for sharing your property.

Fernando and Paula were incredibly kind and helpful hosts providing everything we needed to start our visit and even meeting us upon an early arrival. They gave us great tips on where to visit and eat - the latter proving to be excellent suggestions we hadn't heard of. The house was very clean, had hot water, and a kitchen with all the basics. The view from the edge of the property is phenomenal and the garden makes for a great place for star gazing. This location is perfect for visiting both sides of the island while being outside of the city.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words.

First...a shout out to Paula and Fernando who opened up their home and made us feel like honored guests. They are so kind. You can tell that they have a passion for meeting new people. We did have some problems finding the rental, not due to the map, but because we weren't used to streets that are marked with street names on the buildings and change names so frequently. You are so busy making sure you don't get hit or hold up traffic it is hard to spend time looking for street names! Fernando was kind enough to stay on the phone and guide us in from the city center. Once there, though, it was easy to get around!

Second, what the pictures fail to show is how lovely the property is! The views are amazing. You can walk all the way down to the ocean, although it is steep! And the bottom is quite rocky. The rental itself is a standalone unit on their property so you have privacy.

We stayed here in March and enjoyed our stay greatly. The property is beautiful and quiet. Fernando went out of his way to make sure we had what we needed.

Fantastic situation where even in January you can sit on the balcony high above the crashing waves and enjoy a meal and glass of wine

Very genteel hosts who took great care of us and shared dinner one evening

We heard all about the Azores and tried the fruits from the garden which were delicious

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure to be with you. Our house is always open to receive you.

A wonderful position,quiet and private, friendly helpful owners on site, comfy accommodation with a wonderful kitchen for those who really do self cater. There is an extensive garden, part of which leads down to the lava strewn foreshore. Magnificent sea views to the south, and the sunsets..... A short drive from Villa Franca which has all the shops one needs including a large hypermarket. We will certainly be going again. Bear in mind the village roads on the island are narrow, so don't go for a city tractor; you don't need one anyway as the main routes are well paved and manageable even with a small low cc car.

Paula & Fernando sorry this took a while to write but we would never forget the hospitality you gave us upon our arrival at your beautiful place. Thank your for our welcome pack thank you for taking time from your busy life to spend a wonderful day taking us on tour and sharing lunch. We felt like we had new friends in a far away place and hope to see you both again some day.

It was our first time on this beautiful Island and we can't say enough about the beauty of it. We loved our little house you had so immaculate when we arrived and the property was so beautiful with a great ocean view.

We hope some day to come back to the Island but for now as we are back to Canada we send you our best wishes.

Hugs Dorothy & Harold

We spent a great week at this beautiful place. The large property lies directly at the southern coast and provides a spectacular sea view. The owners, Fernando and Paula, are very friendly and help where they can.to make it a perfect stay. They also have a lot of information about the island, including the way to a couple of hidden beaches nearby. Highly recommandable. Lasse

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. Our goal is to provide a comfortable setting for you to create wonderful memories of your vacation in Sao Miguel. Fernando & Paula
