Christina and Frank's little wood house is amazing. You can tell a lot of love went into the building of this home, every little details works perfectly to make it a cozy place to rest your head. Frank was very hospitable and helpful. He is a fascinating man with lots of stories and in depth knowledge about the islands I very much enjoyed my stay and hope to have the opportunity to return in the future. Thank you for making my holiday fantastic!!
What a wonderful cottage, we really loved it. Peacefull and quite surroundings. Christina and Frank are really hospitable and they made a beautiful and feel at home place. And they can give you really good advice what to do on the island. We really loved the hikes we made and the dive's we took in the hot springs.
We would love to come back ones.
Wir haben über Sylvester zwei Wochen in dem niedlichen blauen Holzhaus zu Gast bei Christina und Frank verlebt. Das Häuschen ist wirklich genauso schön, wie es sich auf den Fotos ankündigt. Man sieht, dass hier mit viel Liebe zum Detail am Haus gearbeitet und gestaltet wurde. Auch der Blick aus dem Fenster auf’s Meer ist wunderbar. Leider war bei uns das Wetter nicht so warm, ansonsten hätten wir auch gern den schönen Garten genutzt, um draußen zu lesen oder zu essen. Mit einem Gartensitzplatz und Gartenliegen ist die Ausstattung wirklich umfangreich. Beide Gastgeber sind sehr hilfsbereit und da sie selbst auch als Reiseleiter tätig sind auch unheimlich wissend über die Insel. Die Liste der Restaurantempfehlungen war uns sehr hilfreich und wir haben in verschiedenen Orten wirklich sehr leckeren Fisch oder auch Steaks essen können. In der unmittelbaren Umgebung des Häuschens liegen tolle Inselpunkte, die eine Besichtigung auf alle Fälle lohnen. Vielen Dank für den schönen Aufenthalt.
We had a wonderful stay in the Casa Arcadia. Christina and Franck were very warm and welcoming, giving us precious instructions to visit San Miguel.
The Casa is very comfortable and, in a word, delightful!
We recommend it to everyone who wants to discover the island!
Christina und Frank haben uns sehr nett in ihrem traumhaften und liebevoll eingerichtetem Häuschen empfangen. Es ist in Wirklichkeit noch viel putziger, als auf den Fotos schon zu erahnen ist. Alles war wie beschrieben. Casa Arcadia liegt so, dass man zu jeder Zeit seine Privatsphäre genießen kann; bei Fragen kann man sich aber natürlich jederzeit an Christina und Frank wenden. Herzlichen Dank für die Zeit, die wir bei euch verbringen konnten.
After traipsing around Europe for a month, we spent six excellent days at Christina and Frank's little house. We knew from the photos (knew!) that we'd love it, and the only surprise was that the kitchen/dining area was more spacious than we expected, which was great! Many others have raved about the place, and we agree with the rave reviews. Christina and Frank themselves were wonderful, recommending and advising as well as answering our many questions about weather, trees, and other things we wanted to know about the island. We felt very welcome on Christina and Frank's property and very cozy in the little house, even when the wind howled. The other thing about the house itself is that if you appreciate careful craftsmanship and attention to detail, you're likely to enjoy this place. In every room you'll see small choices about how things were designed, built, and arranged that will keep your attention and delight you throughout your stay. We thank Frank and Christina from across the Atlantic for sharing the house with us, giving us a peaceful and beautiful place to stay on our way back home from a long journey.
What can we say that hasn't been said a hundred times...this was absolute paradise for us and I couldn't have dreamed up a better place to stay for our amazing trip. Our host Christina was warm and informative, the grounds were charming and well manicured and the bungalow was a hand-crafted labor of love. The location forced us to explore the island more than if we had stayed in Ponta Delgada and we enjoyed every adventure we took tremendously. We feel so fortunate to have found this gem and cannot wait for our next stay!
Since more than 20 years I live on the azores, with my dear husband, dear friends, my dogs, cats, poultry and last but not least, my horses. Living here is an enrichment in my life.
