About this listing

This is a modern architecture house, recently built in the top of a hill, with great views over the ocean and the mountain (including Pico da Vara, the highest peak of the island). Modern and minimalist decor.
Delicious breakfast and great tips about what to do in the island.

The space

We would like to share our house with those who want to know S. Miguel, the largest island of Azores.
The house is located in Povoação, the first village founded by the Portuguese after the discovery of The Azores.

Nearby, you can find Lagoa das Furnas, Caldeiras das Furnas, Praia da Ribeira Quente and Miradouros in the road from Povoação to Nordeste.

The house has all the comfort: wireless internet, cable tv, fireplace, big garden, free parking, ...

This particular bedroom is cozy and has plenty of storage space. In there, there's a couple's bed (150x200). We also have a baby crib (we can agree on a symbolic price). There are also two bedside tables, a mirror and a little desk, besides the wardrobe.

If you come with a group (more than two people), relatives or friends, and if you need more space, we can offer you two more bedrooms, but you have to book it separately on Airbnb (please take a look at our other offers).

In the neighborhood there's a perfect path for walking and jogging.

Guest access

The guests may use the whole house, except the other bedrooms. We rent out three bedrooms and there two bathrooms, both with a shower, which the guests share.
Cooking is not allowed.

Interaction with guests

We prepare breakfast and everybody enjoys it: everyday we make homemade bread (still warm, depending on your waking up time :)), cake and jams and some local products: milk, tea, butter, cheese, ... Sometimes there are pancakes as well.
We try to help the guests with everything they need and, at the same time, give them some privacy. We want to be friendly without being intrusive.

Povoacao, PortugalJoined in November 2011
Carla&João User ProfileCarla&João is a superhost.

I'm a high school teacher (I teach Portuguese, Latin and Ancient Greek) and I'm very lucky for living in the beautiful island of S. Miguel, in The Azores. João is a Radiology technician.
We both are quiet people, who enjoy reading, relaxing on the garden, watching movies and do some hiking (Povoação, the village where we live, has some hiking trails).
S. Miguel Island, the biggest of all Azorean islands, is a truly nature's paradise. You can walk around the lakes, visit magic gardens, have a bath on natural hot pools, swim with dolphins, go on a whale watching tour, see volcanos, go to the beach, walk in the middle of the woods for birdwatching, geocaching, hiking, discovering waterfalls or just relaxing.
The weather is very unpredictable. Never too cold; never too hot. Please, bring a rain coat and count the rainbows :) Prepare yourself for having the four seasons in the same day.
After booking guests will be provided with some suggestions: places to go and activities to do.
We have two female cats, Nina and Tita, and two dogs, Zeus and Micra. We would like to share our place with those who wants to know S. Miguel. We promess do not disturb you and prepare delicious breakfasts for your mornings (I love to cook, and my homemade cakes are very appreciated :)).
Our Bed&Breakfast is legally registered on the azorean tourism authorities (Direcção Regional do Turismo), under the number RRAL 0269.
We hope to meet you at our place! See you soon!
