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 20 rooms reflect a casual yet modern but popular style, decorated to perfection, detail and simple lines.

You are very welcome to Quinta da Abelheira

We stayed in one of the two deluxe rooms for a week. It is exactly as described on the home page. Large rooms with a beautiful view of Ponta Delgada. Wonderful large shower. In the room there was fresh water every day (slightly chlorinated) and fruit. The absolute madness however was the breakfast buffet! Unbelievable what was produced here every day. A real dream! The staff was without exception friendly and very helpful. The handling of our booking was uncomplicated and impeccable. Fifth is important. We would go back any time :-)
