One of the best travel experiences we have had in many countries and many private apartment style bookings. João and Eldi go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable and the pride they take in their property and your experience is inspiring.
Everything is clean, well kept, they provide you with clean towels each day, the garden is beautiful and yours to assist with any meals or snacks you might want to prepare. We had fresh oranges and eggs each morning.
The location is perfect, close to what you need but a little retreat from the main city. Restaurants on the Capelas side of the island are less touristy and crowded. If you want to get back to Ponta Delgada it's just 12 minutes away.
I cannot capture, in words or pictures, the magnificent beauty of São Miguel. I can say that our stay at a Quinta dos Sentidos made it that much more memorable.
