Our home is a traditional Azorian home - my father built it in the early 50's. The home and the yard have been kept to reflect family traditions and our respect for the local community and culture.
As our guest, you will be completely immersed in the local culture and share the pristine beauty of the islands from an Azorian perspective.
All household items, (website hidden), dishes and silverware have been in the family for many generations. We do expect our guests to be sensitive that each item is a family treasure. Please make children aware of this and be extremely careful.
Being that we live on an island, we are very sensitive and responsible stewards of our environment. We maintain an eco-friendly home,
•Place all trash outside in barrel next to garage
•Rain is part of life in Azores – please close all windows when you’re not home
•Henrique is our gardener – you may see him occasionally around the yard.
•Leonor will provide Wi-Fi password
It was a wonderful experience! The house was very confortable for our family (we are 4 people, 2 parents and two teen), because of tree big bedrooms and two bathrooms. It is in a central position, near the main square and shops. Lagoa is a very nice place, and in a few minutes you can visit lots of beautiful place. We really enjoyed Manuel's hospitality and we will remember nicely our dinners in the relaxing terrace!Azzorre are a awesome land, full of nature, to visit once in a lifetime! Sao Miguel will always be in our heart!
Wir haben gleich als Willkommensgeschenk eine Kleinigkeit zu essen bekommen und eine Flasche Wein. Das Haus ist wirklich schön, groß und geräumig und die Terrasse ist traumhaft! Die Nachbarschaft ist angenehm ruhig. Es hat uns zwar nicht Manuel selbst empfangen, aber ein ganz liebes Mädchen, dass uns abgesehen vom Haus wirklich alles im Ort gezeigt hat.
We really liked our stay in Manuel's house. We were 4 (2 parents and grown up children) adults and the house had the perfect size. Very nice terrace that gave us the opportunity to grill some chicken and fish on the barbecue. We were very well welcomed by Leonor and Paulo and appreciated the attentions left for us on Manuel's behalf. Lagoa is a central location that allows a quick trip to any site on the island! The house is a bit humid and smells like a lack of Ventilation. A part from this, all positive! Thank you :)
Very noce house, in a very quiet area, with a nice patio , clean and cozy.
From here We easily visite d the whole Sao Miguel island also following the valuable suggestion of Manuel.
It was a great pleasure to know Debora and Manuel , two people still love their land.
Thank you for the wonderful evening and dinner
This house was amazing. Centrally located to walk everywhere in Lagoa. The house had everything we needed and more. We were able to cook meals and sit on the back patio to enjoy the beautiful landscape. Manuel was very helpful with directions to the house, a local contact in case we needed anything and suggestions with things to do and delicious restaurant recommendations. Thank you, Manuel, for sharing your home with us!
