Our return stay at Vivenda da Saudade B&B was beyond compare. From the fine food, hospitality, weather, easy access to surrounding areas, and more -- our vacation was fun and relaxing. Not only are the hosts of this quality lodging property, Al and Vilma Pinheiro, experts in the art of hospitality, the Bed and Breakfast is steps away from the... More

The accommodations were wonderful, it was like an old world experience in a fantastic modern large home. The grounds were beautiful with a lower seating area just above the water. The breakfast was beyond expectations and the owners were so very friendly and helpful.

I learned of the B and B through TripAdvisor. When I inquired about rooms I also learned that Vilma and Al also own a travel agency in Gilroy. From the moment I spoke to Vilma I knew that this was the place for our family. My wife and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary on the mainland of Portugal and... More

I spent two nights at Vivenda da Saudade and wish I had stayed longer. The owners Al and Vilma Pinheiro helped to make my stay a wonderful experience - they offered many helpful suggestions for places to eat on the island and for things to see and do. Breakfast was generous and exceptional, with fresh local ingredients. The house and... More

We spent our entire nine day stay in the Azores at this location. Owner Al Pinheiro and his staff could not have been more welcoming or friendly. The vivenda is located on a bluff just above the ocean with views toward St. George and Pico islands. Lovely to sit on veranda and watch the small fishing boats go by, the... More

This has to be heaven. What a lovely house, view, etc. We had a wonderful experience here and Eulina was a great hostess.

If you're looking for a comfortable stay on the ocean front close to Angra, look no further! This mansion was recently built and has a garden that opens onto the ocean.
