The stunning Convento São Francisco offers guests the opportunity to relax in its cloisters and enjoy the religious antiques and modern works of art which make up the sophisticated furnishings.
Located on the outskirts of Vila Franca do Campo on the south coast, Convento São Francisco is 15 minutes walk from the marina and 10 minutes walk from the centre of town. It’s a lovely traditional small town and guests can easily take a boat out whale and dolphin watching from the marina in town or take the short hop over to the Islet of Vila Franca and swim in the pretty lagoon of the collapsed crater.
There are 10 en-suite rooms each with their own working fireplace and telephone. There is also a lovely lawn area around the pool with sun loungers and garden furniture ideal for relaxing after a busy day exploring or whale watching. There is also an elegant communal lounge area upstairs with views over the sea.
The Convent is located half way along the south coast of São Miguel in Vila Franca do Campo, so is a great central location for exploring the island from. See below for more information on São Miguel island.
There are so many activities available on São Miguel. All are within a short drive of Convento São Francisco and many of them, we can arrange for you to be picked up for. 10 minutes walk away at Vila Franca marina, you can go whale watching, swimming with dolphins, diving and take a boat trip out to go snorkelling at Vila Franca islet.
