Sao Miguel accommodation
good property in good location. Can walk into town from accommodation

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic Stay!
We really enjoyed our stay with Marion and her husband. The space was very comfortable and we had plenty of room for four (two adults and two young children). Very peaceful & quiet location just outside of town (a little too far to walk, but an easy 10 minute jog/run) The kids loved all the animals and small pool. Would definitely recommend.

5/5 Excellent

5/5 Excellent

Unseren Familienurlaub in die Ferienwohnug "Casa Lea-Sophie" hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Sie war gut eingerichtet und sauber. Der Blick aus dem Fenster auf die Bergen ist sehr schön. Am meisten freuten sich die Kinder über Marion und Dieters Tiere. Die Vermieter Marion und Dieter sind sehr freundlich und haben uns jeden Tag beratet, was wir unternehmen könnten, da das Wetter unbeständig war. Die Kinder haben schon gefragt um näckstes Jahr wiederzukommen.😃😃
