A great part of the mystery and beauty of Santa Maria resides in its rugged agricultural landscapes. This property offers a chance to immerse yourself in this context in a thoughtfully renovated farmhouse where the breeze off the sea is almost always present and great walking trails start at the end of the lane. Joana and Laurinda are kind and attentive hosts. The property is well equipped and very comfortable (though we would have liked an alternative to the K pod coffee machine, the pods for which seem to be virtually unobtainable in the neighbourhood). The collection of books, maps, and information was very helpful in filling in gaps in our understanding about the island and its history. We're ready to book again!
Our family of 7 stayed for 5 days here. The home is spacious and clean. All the comforts available for a relaxing island stay. The outdoor living spaces are fabulous! The view of the valley in the evening and the ocean in the morning. The cool ocean breeze and mist. Oh how I miss you Bea and Karl! Thank You for everything, especially the yummy Bob the Builder cake, my little boys loved it! See you again, soon I hope 😁
