About the neighbourhood
It takes about 30 minutes to drive from the local airport,
30 minutes from the capital Ponta Delgada and 10 minutes from Ribeira Grande, the second largest city on São Miguel. Ribeira Grande is known for its beautiful historic centre, the northern beaches known for windsurfing, as well as the better access point to Lagoa do Fogo crater lake.

Willing to practice some sport? Just 15 minutes by car to the north-east you'll find the Furnas golf course. This course was originally created by Mackenzie Ross as only having nine holes. In 1986 Cameron Powell extended them so successfully to the regular 18 that all the new holes feel as though it was designed as one initial course. The course is located in the Furnas valley which is famous for its tropical vegetation and hot springs together w...
