Where to stay on Sao Miguel

Thank you for the reply on apartment rental suggestions. We are staying on this island for 10 days and I'm trying to figure which part of the island to stay. We plan on renting a car at least for part of the time. I'm trying to see if Ponta Delgada is too much of a city for us. I don't want to be completely rural, but maybe something in a village, near the water within walking distance to places to eat etc. Are there any suggestions? Are there quieter parts of Ponta Delgada or a village with a bit to offer? Thank you. I have so many questions!!! Thankfully other people's posts are answering them for me so I don't have to go on overload for all of you replying.

The Açores are a quiet place. Ponta Delgada has only about 20000 inhabitants, it's a small town. Other small towns (all by the water) are Vila Franca do Campo (11000), Lagoa (14000), Povoação (6000) and Ribeira Grande (12000)...

Here is another idea, very close to Ponta Delgada in a very calm and relaxing area.
