You can also rearrange the living area's central seat pieces accordingly to your taste and use of the space. Kitchen is fully equipped (don't forget to taste enjoy a good cup of expresso with the coffee machine!). Enjoy the balcony with its stunning view. After a day at the beach or exploring the island, it's much relaxing to have some local fresh fish (or meat) using the fully equipped barbecue and seizing the sunset with its fresh breeze. When it's a stormy weather the ambience is also quite enjoyable when watching the rain or the rough sea from the balcony. Furthermore, there's a transparent awning in case the wind direction is towards there. New Travel Contexts In this new worldwide context, take the chance to try a new pace. Stay longer to let yourself immerse in the island experience. If working remotely while enjoying the quality of life of discovering the nature in the spare times, we’ll prepare the place in accordance to your most specific needs, such as house layout preference, workspace designed for your specific needs, playground for kids, among many other details which me and my wife take great pleasure on preparing accordingly. For stays longer than 21 nights, other budgets are also available, depending o each context. Please, feel free to ask. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 2912/ALMore

Wir haben zwei wunderschöne Wochen in Miguel‘s und Romina‘s Traumwohnung verbracht. Unsere ohnehin schon hohen Erwartungen wurden bei weitem übertroffen. Wir haben wahre Gastfreundschaft erlebt. Die Lage der Wohnung ist nicht zu übertreffen. Schon die wunderschöne Aussicht ist ein Urlaubserlebnis für sich. Miguel und Romina haben uns vom Flughafen abgeholt. So viel Freundlichkeit haben wir noch nie erlebt. Das war ein schöner und hilfreicher Empfang auf dieser herrlichen Insel. In der Wohnung haben uns Miguel und Romina sogar mit inseltypischen Lebensmitteln und Getränken überrascht. Es war alles da. Die Wohnung ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man sich nur wünschen kann. Sie ist liebevoll eingerichtet. Miguel und Romina haben ein richtiges Urlaubszuhause geschaffen. Wir haben uns rundherum wohlgefühlt und werden ganz bestimmt wiederkommen. Miguel hat uns fast täglich hilfreiche Tips zu Inselerkundungen und Ausflügen geschickt. Die beiden sind irgendwie immer präsent, ohne dabei aufdringlich zu sein. Hilfen werden innerhalb kürzester Zeit geleistet. Wir bedanken uns für zwei unvergessliche Wochen, die wir immer in unseren Herzen und Erinnerungen tragen.

BREATHTAKING VIEW TO REMEMBER...This apartment will make you never want to leave! Miguel and Romina exceed the standard of excellence! They met us at the airport, 6am on a Saturday morning, and welcomed us with a detailed itinerary of places to visit while waiting for our place to be ready. The phone Miguel supplied us with kept us in contact with him on a daily basis. His daily recommendations and links made us able to visit the highlights of Sao Miguel that we wouldn't have known on our own. The apartment is tucked into a quaint village with one of the most beautiful, un-crowded beach we saw on the island. This beach is a pleasant 5 minute walk from your door. There is also a lovely beach restaurant , Moinhos Terrace Cafe that serve great burgers and beer! The other items on the menu were just as good. The location is just a road away from the major roads that take you to either end of the island. You have the best if both worlds here, rural location with easy access to discover the island. Miguel and Romina stock the house with everything and more to make you feel at home. The two of them have created perfection in this rental property! I miss Miguel and Romina, not to mention our beautiful "rental" home already. We will be back! The Hunter, CT, USA

Hilltop is a peaceful place with wonderful views from the balcony of the sea and beach. On arrival at the airport Miguel & Romena were there to welcome us and guide us to our apartment even though it was late at night. There was a delicios feast of local breads, cheese, meats & drinks which we thoroughly enjoyed. Miguel sent us daily texts of information of things to do which was so great. The apartment is so well equiped with everything needed for a relaxed stay. I would definately recommend Hilltop and Miguel & Romena were the perfect hosts.

Eine sehr schöne Wohnung an einem besonderen Ort. Die Aussicht vom Balkon über Meer und Strand ist einzigartig. Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber und mit allem ausgestattet was man brauchen kann, sowohl an Gerätschaften als auch an Verbrauchsmaterialien wie Purzmitteln, Pflegeprodukte etc. Selbst eine Auswahl von lokalen Lebensmitteln haben wir im Kühlschrank vorgefunden! Es war alles da um anzukommen und sich wohl zu fühlen. Miguel der Vermieter hat uns freundlich empfangen und die Zeit über mit Tips zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten der Insel und Tipps zu Restaurants versorgt. Ohne aufdringlich zu sein war er die ganze Zeit ansprechbar für Fragen bezüglich der Wohnung und der Insel. Wir haben einen wohltuend entspannten und unkomplaufenhalt genossen. Sehr zu empfehlen!

About the neighbourhood
In the old times it was a parish known for its fishermen and farmers. With a great fishery coast, secluded harbor and water mills, farmers from the NorthEast coast used it as a meeting point for exchanging an processing goods using the mills. That's why the name “Moinhos” (translated as “mills”). The Tea plantations – the only 2 in Europe - were a great booster for the predominance of country life as well, back in 1750. Nowadays, this small village of Porto Formoso – Moinhos - is inhabited by natives or people from nearby cities that have chosen to move to a place of privacy and quietness in the nature, centered in the island while out of the city rush but, at the same time, in a short driving distance to everything else.
Getting around
2 restaurants down the sttreet, 5 mins by car to Viewpoint Miradouro de Santa Iria and the Harbor, 10 mins to other Restaurants (2 of the most known for their fresh fish and seafood such as Cantinho do Cais), 7 mins to the 2 unique Tea plantations in all Europe, 12 mins to the tobacco and spices museum at Maia, 20 mins to Lagoa do Fogo view, Lagoa city and Furnas valley, 28-35 mins to Agua D'Alto southern beaches and the islet in Vila Franca. 35 mins to the NorthEast extreme and 55 mins to Sete Cidades lagoons (SouthWest).
