Pink House Azores, Ponta Delgada
Ponta Delgada | Saõ Miguel
People say there is no place like home. But what if I told you that there are places that make you feel like you are home, but is like a home far from home. Would you believe me?
When Thomas and I were planning our trip to the Azores we couldn’t figure out where we wanted to stay during our time here. Saō Miguel isn’t a humongous island, but there is plenty to see on both sides. In order to get the full experience, we decided to stay in different places. And because we were dealing with the availability of the hotels and apartments, we ended up booking 3 different places.
We started our trip in Punta Delgada. Although I love to spend some time in the city, I prefer nature more. So we found the perfect compromise. We stayed at the prettiest Pink House which is located just outside Punta Delgada. So I would take us a short ride to get to the harbor, shops, and restaurants. Punta Delgada is also the spot on the island where it’s most likely to catch some sun rays (because it’s located between the mountains) and it would take you max 45 to 60 min to drive to the tip of the island, on both sides. So when in doubt where to stay, this area will be ideal.
Pink House | Pink Studio
Pink House is a renovated old barn, beautifully restored and decorated with a touch of minimalism, and it’s divided into two separate apartments. The Pink Studio and the Main House. Thomas and I stayed at the Pink Studio because it’s perfect when it’s just us two. Especially because the main house has 3 bedrooms and bathrooms, which makes it ideal for small groups and families. But if there is availability and you are lucky to spend a little more money during your holiday (or even a honeymoon) I do recommend to book the main house. It’s such a special place to be.
The countryside of Saō Miguel is really a nice place to wake up. When the first sun rays hit the curtains and the while the birds start to sing, there is someone picking fresh flowers and making you a delicious breakfast – that will be delivered at your doorstep. Even when you are on a diet because of allergies, they will make a perfect breakfast for you. The Pink House, the beautiful garden (that feels like a park), the breakfasts and hospitality will make you feel at home, right away. I always love to travel somewhere new. But when I’m back at Saō Miguel I’ll make sure to check their availability first. Because it is truly a home away from home.
