Convento de São Francisco
Portugal - Azores - São Miguel - Vila Franca do Campo

After whale watching, retire to the convent and fall asleep on a sumptuous bed.

In the South of the São Miguel island in the Azores Archipelago, is the Convento de São Francisco framed by the invigorating landscape of the Vila Franca do Campo Isle natural reserve and the sea on the horizon.

The 16th century convent was renovated and refurbished with sophistication and transformed into an elegant and beautifully austere hotel. The floor covered in exotic wood, the volcanic rock in the restrooms and the wrought iron pieces and period furniture are features that particularly stand out.

The decor of each room, baroque inspired, was designed individually, with the gold leaf wood, the rich fabrics, the fireplaces and both religious and contemporary art as the main focal points.

A short distance from the convent, the marina and small harbour of Vila Franca do Campo are the ideal setting off point for whale watching trips, for fishing, swimming and diving in the sea or in the isle’s natural pool.

Enjoy the beach, a round of golf and long walks exploring the inviting mountain trails through amazingly green landscapes. Be sure to visit the lagoons of Fire and of the Seven Cities, one of São Miguel island’s main attractions.

Reviews

“The hotel was first class and the people running it made you feel very welcome and invited you to treat it as a home rather than a hotel. The facilities were very good and the conversion to hotel carried out very tastefully and in keeping with this historic building. An ideal place to relax and we would certainly use the hotel again on any future visit to São Miguel and recommend it to our friends. I cannot fault your service to me in arranging this hotel for our stay in Vila Franca do Campo and would certainly use your services again."
Eric Mobbs

"Our stay at the Convento de São Francisco was amazing! The hosts were very kind and the hotel was one of the most unique, beautiful and well-maintained places we have ever stayed in!"
