Find Holiday Villas and Apartments in Azores for rent
If you base yourself on the islands of Sao Miguel, Terceria or Faial, holiday cottages in the Azores can offer the opportunity to enjoy a truly comprehensive experience of a unique cultural heritage by giving you the chance to investigate the only vibrant cities to exist in the country, of which there are five - Ponta Delgada on Sao Miguel being the capital. While history and culture may be the reason why you want to rent a holiday apartment, villa, or cottage in the Azores, the outstanding scenic beauty and incredible diversity of landscapes and environments are what attracts most visitors to these nine islands, not to mention the kind of idyllic climate that makes any time of the year a good time to be renting holiday homes in the Azores.
A nation borne out of violent seismic activity, Faial is where the last volcanic eruption actually occured in 1957, but rugged volcanic landscapes are a trademark of every island and Pico is home to the highest mountain peak, not only in this country but also in its closest neighbour, Portugal , so cottage rentals in the Azores will appeal to your sense of adventure if you like your countryside to come with a little added danger! Despite never being far from the coast on any island in the Azores, holiday apartments, villas, and cottages in Faial, Sao Miguel and Santa Maria are sure to tick all your boxes if a sandy beach is an essential requirement of your vacation, as these are all favourite destinations for those in search of sun, sea and sand. But finding yourself within minutes of the Atlantic ocean means there'll be something for everyone to enjoy in the Azores, whether it's diving, sailing or watersports or you simply want to retreat to a sun bed after breakfast and watch the whales and dolphins all day!
