Your hosts:

Dagmar Mehlis-Doering and
Wulf H. Koehler

We are a German couple who have been living on São Miguel, the main island of the Azorean archipelago, for more than twenty years.

Apart from German, we speak English, French and Portuguese.

We live directly next-door to the apartment and will gladly provide you with ideas for your sight-seeing tours, transportation, restaurants, whale-watching or souvenirs.

You are welcome to use our extensive library of travel guides and books on the Azores’ flora and fauna.

We can also pick you up from the airport in Ponta Delgada if you would like us to.

The apartment

As soon as you enter, you will note the spacious, modern and bright architecture of the holiday apartment.

Huge panoramic windows offer open vistas over the mountains, the coastline and the crater islet of Vila Franca do Campo.

On the two balconies, extending the living areas into the open air, you can enjoy the fresh ocean breeze and the subtropical temperatures.

Please note, we would appreciate if you only smoke outside on the balconies with the doors to the apartment closed.
