Pink House

We love the look of this restored old barn turned into design boutique accommodation, a seven-minute drive from the historical centre of São Miguel. The property comprises two units: a three-bedroom house and a studio with garden views, both featuring well-equipped kitchens. There’s a communal seasonal outdoor pool, daily cleaning, and a delicious seasonal breakfast served each morning.

We adore the transformation of Pink House, a restored vintage barn into design boutique accommodation on São Miguel Island.
