Pensao Francisca was an excellent 3-night stay on our trip. Franziska and Christian were so polite and organized with everything for our check-in and check-out. We felt well taken care of and they made great recommendations for restaurants and activities. Breakfast was excellent each morning - our best on the island and such a pleasant start to each day. The bedroom and bathroom was clean and well appointed for a very comfortable stay. Finally, the property itself is such a charming place to come home to each night and spend time in the garden and patio. Would highly recommend it and would stay here again.
Very large rooms and private baths. Wonderful breakfast each morning. Very convenient location between the downtown area and the best beach(Praia Formosa) in all of the Azores. Great hosts! Would definitely stay here again.
It was such a pleasure to stay at Pensao Francisca. The hospitality is impeccable and there could not have been better accommodations. Not to mention, the breakfast was so great! We would not hesitate to stay here again for our next visit to Santa Maria. We cannot thank Christian and Franziska enough for everything!
We stayed for three nights. Our room was nice and the owners are a wonderful couple, very helpful and accommodating. Breakfast was a great spread with handmade bread, bircher muesli, cold meats, eggs, cheeses and many different jams and spreads. We would definitely recommend staying here.
My main criteria for rating a travel destination is the question 'Would I come again?' the destination and accommodation in this case would elicit a resounding YES! in both cases. We both returned home with very positive experiences after our delightful stay in Santa Maria and the home of Christian & Franziska Thank you
