What a great place to stay. Scenery views and beautiful night sky. This was exactly what we were looking for. Just about 40min from Ponta Delgada, the Nordeste region is a quiet, lovely and simple place to stay. The house provides pretty much what we were looking for. Green scenes, barbecue, basaltic stone kind of home. Is very close to beaches, local supermercarkets and other amenities you might look for. The owner was very friendly and came to greet us, giving that little touch that a good hospitality should have. The neighbourhood was extremely kind, offering fresh eggs and able to offer us more if we wished! Nothing to complaint and would definately be back for another round. Wish all the best!

Our stay at Casa do Forno was perfect! Sao Miguel was the first island we visited on our trip, and we were so thankful to have found this place! Bruno was incredibly helpful during the booking process. He answered all of our questions and helped to arrange a rental car for us (which made the process so much easier and more affordable, we learned!). Antonio met us at the house when he arrived, and he gave us great information about the island and things to see in our short time there. The house was everything we expected it to be--it is such a special place. We loved being out in Nordeste, and it ended up being so easy to drive around the island to explore all of its natural wonders. Thank you again to Bruno, Antonio, and everyone else who made our first few nights in the Azores so special and memorable!

Antonio, the owner, greeted us at the top of the hill with a warm smile and hospitable welcome. We immediately felt at home in this cozy cottage. He kindly provided a variety of treats (wine, bread, fruits) and then proceeded to detail the nearby travel destinations that he thought we would enjoy. We loved the quiet town with dramatic coastal views and beautiful farm lands. It was great to stay in this area because of the accessibility to Nordeste center, the Furnas hot springs, Pico de Vara, and multiple coastal walks. Even in December, the typical off-season, we enjoyed this beautiful area.

Bruno was helpful making the arrangements for our holiday and the property and car hire were great - exactly as promised. Antonio at the Casas do Frade was a fantastic host - providing excellent advice on where to go and kindly stocking our fridge with essentials to help us cope with our very late arrival time.

Positives: Great location. Very comfortable accommodation. Everything that you need to cook meals and to relax. Amazing owner (Antonio) who will make sure that you are taken care of. The fridge was iced up when we arrived and he had a new one in place within a few hours!! He provided us with an amazing welcome basket of wines, cheese, fruits, bread, and sat down with us and went over the things to see/do on the island. Negatives: Bruno (the "host" of this site) is NOT the owner of this place, which is part of the larger group of Casas do Frade units. (I am not sure what his relationship is with the establishment so will not speculate.) We initially contracted to stay in Casa do Forno for 8 nights. Shortly after the agreement was made, Bruno sent us an email telling us that we would have to change sites part way through. He later sent an email telling us the "good news" that we would not have to change. A few days before we were due to leave for Sao Miguel, he sent an email advising us that we would be staying at Casa Talamanca (i.e.: not the unit that we had booked). He assured us that it was "even bigger" but we have no way of knowing this. In any case, he did not seem to appreciate that we made our choice based on the pictures and details provided. If I were going to stay at any of the Casas do Frade units, I would contact the owner directly (there is a website) and would not deal with Bruno. Antonio is a great guy and will absolutely make sure that you are well taken care of.

Response from Bruno:
Dear Joel, I did everything in my range to get you the best accommodation possible. You agreed with everything I purposed in order to avoid having you changing places, which you thanked me. I'm very sorry that you did not contact me before leaving a review like this, as you may check everyone else looks please with my work. Anyway, I'm very happy that you enjoyed the house, and you're very welcome to come back, dealing with me or with Antonio, which is the owner of the place like I told you on our first message. I wish you all the best! Sincerely, Bruno

This place was amazing! The house was great and the view was unbeatable. We arrived to a clean, inviting home, and even had an assortment of breakfast foods waiting for us. Bruno was quick to answer all of our questions before and during our stay, and the landlord Antonio made us feel very welcome. He even drove out to meet us and show us the way back to the house when we got lost. We would definitely recommend staying here!

What a great place to stay! Right from the get-go we felt very welcomed by Bruno and Antonio. They left us some bread, fruit, cheese, lunch meats and jam as a welcome gift, and Antonio gave us some advice on what to see around the island. The house was equipped with everything needed to cook meals (and also a hair dryer, thank goodness!). The views from the yard were spectacular and we spent some evenings sitting on the patio and drinking wine. We highly recommend this place as Bruno and Antonio were very helpful and quick to respond. (We even locked ourselves out of the house at one point but after a quick phone call we were back in within 5-10 minutes). They also offered to book a rental car through them which saved us a lot of time and money. Great place and would love to go back!
