“Cozy cottage in the middle of nowhere, yet close to everything”
Reviewed May 2, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Casa Da Talha had everything we needed to be self-sufficient on our week-long stay on Sao Miguel. There wasn't a pot, pan or utensil we felt was missing, and we ate every breakfast and most dinners at the cottage. Not only did Ricardo provide bread, eggs, fruit and cheese for breakfast (and resupplied us as needed), but there is coffee, sugar, salt, pepper and a selection of condiments and spices. The wood burning grill in the sunroom is great. There were extra blankets provided and space heaters which were welcome in April and some light housekeeping and fresh towels were provided every other day or so. The best part about staying here is all the information Ricardo gives you both personally and in binder, guidebook, video form. He knew we were there to hike and offered us some really great suggestions that allowed us to adjust to the weather each day. We found the island to be incredibly well-signed and rather enjoyed our drives from one end to the other, around the coast and through the middle. For anyone concerned about it's location in the northeast corner; we found it very easy to drive to the Sete Cidades area not once, but twice, taking about 90 minutes one way. But you could easily spend the week just exploring all the options Ricardo gives you for the Nordeste region and we will be returning to do just that!

“WOW!!!! Stunning!!!”
Reviewed June 2, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Thank you Ricardo. We LOVED Casa Da Talha. We loved the location viewing the ocean yet in the farmlands in a small village. It was SO quiet! the cottage was extremely well-equipped. We cooked breakfast in and a few dinners. Ricardo delivered fantastic bread and sweets. He also had the frig filled with some other staples. This, to us, was a special place. We LOVED sitting outside in the new patio on the sunny days and spending the chilly evenings in the sun room. SUPER!!!!!

“Updated traditional country cottages near the sea in the Azores”
Reviewed February 19, 2015 for a stay in February 2015
1
person found this review helpful

The Tradicampo properties are well-designed updates of traditional island houses, well fitted out, with great attention to detail. The operation is professional and reliable. The accommodations are not luxurious, but they are comfortable, private, quiet, and smack in the middle of the gorgeous countryside, located in traditional European villages but on an amazing volcanic island, temperate of climate and as green as Ireland.

Ricardo Peixoto has assembled an impressive set of information about trails, hikes, and sites worth visiting and placed it in each of his houses. You will not lack for activities if you like the outdoors. Restaurants in the northeast of Sao Miguel are relatively few. The family fish restaurant in Sao Bras is superb. Fish is not all they have, but it's what the place is really about. Lomba de Fazenda, just outside Nordeste, has a good restaurant for lunch, though it was not open for dinner when we were there (in February 2015). For some reason Nordeste itself lacks a really good restaurant. Ricardo's restaurant recommendations are right on the money. If you can handle the narrow, unpaved mountain road, don't miss the protected area outside Nordeste called Tronqueira. You can spot the Azorean Bullfinch (the "priolo") whose habitat is being restored to rescue it from extinction. San Miguel has enough to keep you occupied for weeks."

“Heaven in the Azores”
Reviewed July 8, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had a fantastic stay at Casa da Talha.

Ricardo met us and spent an hour going over all the places we couldn't miss. So glad he did as we wouldn't have found them on our own.

The house was charming, spacious, clean and had everything we needed and more!
We were unsure what the area would be like but it was the nicest on the whole island if we were to go back we would head right back to Casa Da Tahla.
