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.

Thank you Fernando and Paula for your wonderful hospitality and making sure our stay exceeded expectations. We were immediately comfortable and felt like we were at home.

Quinta de Milhafres Guest House is a beautiful new cottage style guest house constructed in lovely aromatic pine and surrounded by lovely gardens. It smells fresh and is positioned so that we could see the ocean from the dining/sitting room and from the bedroom.

All the amenities one would need for a stay away from home were all there, functional, new and clean. There is even a ramp to access the house front for the physically challenged.

It is a wonderful gated location high up overlooking the ocean which you can hear softly in the night. To the right is Villa Franca and Iles de Villa Franca.

If you are tired at the end of the day; you can always tune into one of many channels on the satellite TV.

It is a few minutes from Villa Franca, which is a beautiful mid size town with shopping and groceries and restaurants and then from there, you can take the expressway to anywhere on the island.

We were not able to find any negatives; we were very pleasantly surprised and satisfied with this accommodation.

Would definitely recommend this lovely spot and will be back!!

Thank you Fernando and Paula.

We spent 4 days and 3 nights here and it couldn't have been better. The home was very comfortable and the ocean views spectacular. Fernando and Paola were very welcoming and went out of their way to be sure our stay was perfect. Our azores vacation was amazing and we hope to be back again soon!

We enjoyed the cottage and terrain. We enjoyed preparing our meals with fresh lettuce, fava beans, zucchini from the owner's vegetable garden. It was quiet and peaceful with a beautiful view of the ocean. The cottage and deck were well built and the owners were very kind to us.

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

We were sorry we didn't have longer to stay at this comfortable, quiet cottage with all amenities. The location was ideal for exploring the south east. Fernando recommended some great local restaurants and the quiet but perfect little beach in the village. We hope to be able to return again.

Wir haben uns in den zwei Wochen sehr gut erholt und das lag nicht nur an der wunderschönen Insel Sao Miguel, sondern vor allem an dem traumhaften Ferienhaus. Das Holzhaus ist sehr gemütlich und alles, wirklich alles was man brauchen könnte ist vorhanden. Das Beste ist natürlich der Ausblick auf den Ozean.... und der schöne Garten. Die Gastgeber waren sehr, sehr freundlich und aufmerksam, man fühlt sich gleich als Familienmitglied. Vielen Dank für diesen tollen Urlaub!

Die einzige kleine Enttäuschung war, dass man über eine Treppe zwar zum Meer kommt, aber nicht wirklich ins Wasser gehen kann.
