Quinta da Tilia may just be the most spectacular vacation home we have had the pleasure of staying at. Located up in the hills of Capelas, it's central location makes it an ideal place to call home when visiting Sao Miguel. The high end home is tastefully decorated, loaded with amenities and the yard is absolutely beautiful. The house is spaciously laid out, with two bedrooms and one bathroom on one side of the house followed by the kitchen and living room, then the master quarters tucked away at the far end of the house. The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, pots, pans, cutlery, etc, making meal prep easy; and the common area has a dining/pool table, speakers, a TV, and plenty of comfortable seating. We could not have asked for a better night's sleep. Not only were the beds extremely comfortable, but the air conditioners kept the heat and humidity down during the hot August evenings. The bedrooms also have interior wooden blinds which blocked out the light, creating an even more relaxed environment. Subtle yet mesmerizing views of the northern coast and hillside will draw your attention from virtually every room in the house, inviting you to explore the gardens. Fruit orchards separated by old stone walls form an enchanting labyrinth around the home. Take advantage of the playing field, snooze in the hammock underneath the bougainvillea pergola, or gaze at the fish in the pond. Just don't forget to pay your respects to the mighty Tilia tree, the centerpiece of the estate. Quinta da Tilia is a remarkable home and clearly demonstrates the pride that Maria and Joao put into it. We had a fantastic time and look forward to returning in the near future!

My family and I loved the house. It was very spacious, cozy, and uniquely designed. We felt truly lucky to be at this house. The number of gardens was truly shocking, the moment you think there simply cannot be anymore, there just is more. There was a huge variety in the flora of the gardens, all the plants looked so beautiful and mythical. Another very impressive feature was the tidiness of these gardens; you can truly see the devotion and care that went into creating these gardens and their upkeep by the owners. This was just a little taste about what this house has to offer, so if you want to see the rest, you should come and experience the rest for yourself. - pictures don't do this property justice... it is a lot better!
