AZ616 Quinta do Buganvilias


Situated close to but not affected by the airport at Horta, this small complex contains 8 rooms, 3 in the main house and five in a second building. A third building (Grandmaís house) contains the bar, a rustic water wheel and antique tools etc. Reception is open 8 till 11. There are two small restaurants within 10 minutes walk. The breakfast room overlooks the island of Pico and the extreme end of the runway. Breakfast is served in the old kitchen and homemade marmalade and homegrown fruit is served. Outside there is a barbeque available for the use of guests. Accommodation layout consists of a double and a single sharing a bathroom on one side and on the other side a double with shower room. Alternatively the whole area can be used for 5 guests, with full cooking and dining facilities in the central sitting area. A similar layout exists in the lower apartment. There is a vast garden of which the owner is justifiably proud in which he grows, loquots, guavas, oranges, bananas, potatoes, roses, and orchids surrounded by cotton, bamboo and camelia hedges.

Our Opinion
An enthusiastic owner adds to the attraction of this interesting and very pleasant accommodation. The benefits of the flexible accommodation can be imagined. The infrequent airplanes (around 8 a day maximum) which are airborne by the time they pass the end of the garden are of interest rather than an intrusion.
