Família Veloso about Monte Inglês
Our stay in Monte Inglês couldn't be better. We were there for six nights and it was just perfect. The apartment was fully equiped with everything a person may need, the location provides a good starting point to get to know the island and the kindness of our host can't be matched. Monte Inglês is the perfect place if you're looking for a clean, safe and cosy place to stay in S. Miguel. Everything in the apartment was gorgeous and waking up surrounded by nature was just a luxury we were not expecting.
D. Maria (the owner) was always very kind and committed to make our stay as pleasant as possible.
If we were to go to S. Miguel once again, Monte Inglês would be our pick. We strongly recommend it. Thank you for everything!
