Quinta da Mó belongs to Luisa and Valerio and has been in Luisa’s family for generations but had gradually fallen into disrepair.
With Luisa’s eye for detail this former farm and mill in Furnas has been lovingly renovated and is now one of the most comfortable self catering properties in the Azores. Within the grounds of Quinta da Mó is a large three bedroom house and 3 one bedroom houses which were originally the corn stores and are built on raised blocks. Each one has large windows which overlook the gardens and secluded wooden patios with teak furniture. There is also a hot tub for guest’s use.
The gardens of Quinta da Mó are bordered by a small river which flows down from Lake Furnas; at the far end is a weir with bridge which leads to a secluded covered terrace with comfortable furniture and BBQ.
The 3 bedroom house has 3 en-suite bedrooms, a kitchen/diner on the first floor and large lounge on the ground floor with access to a patio and river.
There are 3 one bedroom houses and one large 3 bedroom house. All have fully equipped modern kitchens, TV and bathrooms. In the three bedroom house all rooms are en-suite.
In the central highlands of São Miguel, the house is in the outskirts of Furnas around 50 minutes drive from Ponta Delgada and 20 minutes from Vila Franca do Campo. See below for more information on São Miguel island.
Azores Choice provided a prompt, helpful service. they found us the perfect accommodation for our needs and provided superb, expert advice on how to spend our week walking on San Miguel. I would certainly use them again.
