Our stay at Cristina's place was lovely! She has been a very kind and helpful host to us. The cottage is really cute and has a perfect location to discover the whole island by car. However, at this time of year (beginning of May) I would probably recommend it for a few days, and not for a week as we did. Due to the amount of rain, the house was still quite damp and a bit cold in the mornings and evenings. In general we had a pleasant stay and felt very welcome.
Cristina was hosted us for two nights at the start of our Azores visit and for two at the end at her quiet and comfortable accomodation on the sea. She was very welcoming and gave us all the information we needed to have a nice stay.
Although it was not swimming season yet, the natural ocean pool was gorgeous and a nice place to hang out.
At the start of our visit we stayed in the sweet little cottage behind the main house, at the end of our trip in the large 2 bedroom apartment with a very well equipped kitchen and a patio overlooking the sea.
Cristina's house is absolutely incredible; not only is it one of the cheapest holiday lets in São Miguel that we found (in April 2015), it far and away offers the most, in terms of facilities and experience. We were astonished at the amount of garden we had, the house comes next to a few small fields of banana and bamboo plants, along with your own private natural swimming pool and access to the sea. The house itself was charming and quaint, as well as clean, with a little log burner, outdoor barbecue, and all the amenities you'd need for a week exploring the beautiful Açores. Cristina's friendly dog roams the grounds, but he is extremely well-trained and refuses to enter the house - he will be your best friend but only if you want him to be.
As a host, Cristina was absolutely fantastic - we arrived over an hour late in the dead of night and she was very understanding and didn't mind at all. She even bought us food for our first breakfast, and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed.
Staying at Cristina's quinta is a brilliantly authentic Azorean experience and definitely the best taste of island life; in the middle of a quiet village with very friendly and helpful locals, you have everything you need and all the natural beauty you could ever wish for and more. I will definitely be returning
we had a good time at the place and the view to the atlantic is fantastic. Ribeira das Tainhas is not too far from Furnas and Lagoa do Fogo. It was cool to have the possibility to use the chimney and take a bath. Christina was a very welcoming and caring host.
Even though we didnt need it much, the internet didn't work. But well.....its better to unplug during the holidays anyway ;)
