My husband, 2 year old son and I stayed at the vigils da areia's casa da mar for a few nights in early July and fell in love with this place! Roberto greeted us in Sao Lorencao after our flight arrived late and escorted us to the little villa. The fridge/ kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could need (beer, wine, bubble water, butter, milk) and they left us a large basket of local delicacies including bread, cookies and jam! The little beach house was so comfortable for the three of us! We made use of the awesome tiny infinity pool. There are two restaurants within a short walk that serve food throughout the day. We made friends with the cute lizards that frolicked in the sun on the rocks! The unit had wifi and a tv. Most nights we slept with the windows open so we could fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves! Oh and they have a kayak you can borrow while staying there!
This rental was hands down the best location we could have picked for our trip to Santa Maria. Ideal for a couple (very romantic with hot tub and beautiful sunrises) but we stayed with our girls that are 8yrs old and they did not want to leave! The property is right on the beach and if you want to swim in the pool, its a 5 min walk up the beach. There is also restaurants right near the house so if you don't rent a car you pretty much have everything you need. The house was immaculate when we arrived, very modern which was nice (we found that other properties rented had plumbing issues but this house had plenty of hot water and great pressure). This house offers a kayak, snorkeling gear, fishing poles so there is plenty to do on your vacation. I highly recommend this property.
What a great holidays!
The kids loved the jacuzzi. We loved the sound of the surroundings.
We were not the firsts, and surely we will not be the last ones, but they really made us feel like unique guests.
They have a beach down the stairs were you can kayaking and snorkeling with equipment from the house. How cool is this? (very cool I may add).
Many many other positive emotions are left for you to discover. Go there! You will love it too.
Do not miss a half day sailing on the "Allegro" with Elisa and Roberto!!
We spent five great days at Vigia da Areia. We were the first guests in this wonderful and beautifully located house. Aside from the sandy beach it offers the luxury of a Jacuzzi with superb views. The house is well equipped and the information provided in the booklets was helpful. The host was very helpful and friendly and the house manager, was very quick in responding and helpful. The basket with the regional products was a very nice thougt. It was very useful for us that a baby bed and a baby chair were provided.
We were really happy to stay in Sao Lourenco, which is a very quite and lovely place. There is no supermarket but two nice eating options. We rented a car, but almost didnt use it, as we did not want to leave vigia da areia. There is a nice hiking trail just starting in the village, with incredible views.
We really hope to return to Vigia da Areia one day!
