The Azores Islands were elected amongst others, the "Best European Destination in 2016"and Quinta da Abelheira is unique and probably the best Rural Tourism accommodation for you to enjoy your vacations in São Miguel Island. The Estate has been totally renewed by the new owners and it's located on the outskirts of Ponta Delgada (4km), surrounded by a large forest area with hundreds of local wildlife stripes.

Climbing the hill that characterizes the homestead, you will have a privileged view over the capital city, the fantastic mountain of Lagoa do Fogo and great part of the sunny south beach coast. You will start your lifetime vacations precisely on this trail, when you arrive at the belvedere and contemplate the extensive North Atlantic waters, with the taste of sun, silence and comforting peace.

For resting we have several green areas, hidden lookouts, swimming pool, an exclusive vegetable garden that you can handle yourself if you feel to, and a lot of friendly reading zones.

If you're passionate about the sea, we have the beaches - Pópulo and Milícias - with typical volcanic dark sand less than 2km away. All 15 rooms reflect a casual yet modern but popular style, decorated to perfection, detail and simple lines.

Beautiful hotel with the best staff

We stayed here during our honeymoon and had the best time. The hotel is beautiful, the room and bed were super comfortable, and breakfast is extensive and delicious. It's located in a perfect area that's extremely quiet (except for the occasional rooster), but just a few minute's drive from Ponta Delgada and an easy drive from just about anywhere on the Island. Best of all, the whole staff was friendly and welcoming. We loved coming back from a long day hiking and relaxing with a beer near the pool.

Overlooking Ponta Delgada

This was my second stay at Quinta da Abelheira and everything was once again as I expected it to be. Great breakfast with fresh products, the perfect start to the day. The slightly more expensive rate per night than with others in the area, is absolutely worth it. Quiet location, private parking and a large garden and terrace overlooking everything towards the sea.
