Casa da Rocha Quebrada is a lovely old property that belongs to Maria João, who comes from one of the oldest families of São Miguel and is occasionally rented out to clients.
The house is situated near Livramento, on the south coast of Sao Miguel (10mins drive from Ponta Delgada and Lagoa). The house is approached down a tree lined drive from the old coast road and has a large walled garden and plenty of parking.
There are two floors on Casa da Rocha Quebrada; the ground floor is extensive and feels like the servants quarters of a small castle (you probably won’t use this except for playing in). The first floor is large and spacious with 2 double ensuite rooms, one twin ensuite (can also be a double) and an extra room (not ensuite) which can be a single or a twin, lounge, dining room and modern kitchen.
There is an enclosed first floor veranda and roof terrace/patio which overlooks the ocean. Nearby there are two beaches called Praia Milicais and Praia do Populo with a café at one end and a restaurant at the other end. In the summer they usually have a lifeguard and swimming flags.
A welcome basket with some essentials, bedding and towels are included at Casa da Rocha Quebrada and Maria João will arrange for a cleaner to come to the house during your stay.
Casa da Rocha Quebrada on São Miguel island is conveniently located on the south coast just 2km from one of the Azores' most popular sandy beaches, 2km from the Lagoa seawater swimming pools and just a few minutes walk from a natural swimming area.
