There is a small mini-market in Santo Espírito and a supermarket in the main town of Vila do Porto.
Casa Margarida has two bedrooms (one double and one room with a bunkbed where the bottom bunk can be used as a double) sleeping a maximum of 5, well equipped kitchen with fridge, dishwasher, washing machine, gas stove and electric oven. There is a lounge diner and garden, with BBQ and outdoor furniture.
Casa Margarida is located on Santa Maria island 4km from Santo Espírito village which is a popular walking base, just 6 km away from the spectacular Bay of São Lourenço and 13km from Vila do Porto. See below for more information on Santa Maria island.
You can be collected from Casa Margarida for tours, biking and guided walking but because of its rural location we would recommend hiring a car and exploring this stunning island on your own.
