Gosto muito de tudo relacionado com actividades na natureza, vida no campo, mar e animais.
How can I shout loud enough to recommend this paradise called Casa Borboleta? Carolina's studio which is actually the entire first floor (American first floor) of her beautiful house surrounded by panoramic view, fruit orchards, secret garden, and flowering plants provided us with 5 days of incredible peace, happiness, and everything else that I am running out of words to describe. Her dogs (all rescued by her) are adorable, she herself is WONDERFUL. The little village Sao Vicente provides one with the essence of real Azorian life. Ignore Ponta Del Gada and go stay in Carolina's. She picked us and dropped us off at the airport. Do rent a car to see the beautiful island. Her house is fantastically located, and supremely clean. She gives so much that I doubt you will need anything more but if you do, just ask and she will make sure to make it happen like she did roll out a yoga mat for me. It was a treat for us to drink coffee in the upstairs sitting room while enjoying the incredible view and then do yoga in front of this vista. I would like to come back next year. Casa Borcoleta has our highest recommendation.
Casa da Borboleta is perfectly situated on the island - very central and just a 10min drive from Ponta Delgada. The studio has plenty of space and is decorated with so many colourful little details. The kitchenette has a fridge and a microwave and all the tableware and cutlery you need. As a bonus there was also different kinds of tea, chocolate, crackers and some drinks.
The garden is full of citrus trees and even has a very comfy looking hammock (unfortunately the weather was too cold…).
Carolina was always very helpful and has great suggestions for activities on the island. I had a great time!
