This beautiful restoration of an elegant home built in 1899, provides a unique base in the centre of Ponta Delgada. Casa das Palmeiras, meaning ‘House of the Palm Trees’, has been sensitively brought back to life preserving many of the original architectural features and uncovering previously hidden original timbers and floor tiles.
It now offers guests the choice of 10 rooms sleeping a total of 23 people when fully occupied. There are 5 standard twins/doubles on the first floor – 3 of which have a balcony, 2 superior double rooms on the first floor with balconies and sofa bed and 3 Superior king rooms all on the second floor without balconies – one of which has a sofa bed.
All rooms are ensuite and all bathrooms have a shower rather than bath, except for one superior double room.
Breakfast is served from 0830-1030 and is homemade with a selection of hot and cold food. Picnics, dinner, babysitting and transfers can also be provided on request.
In the heart of the old part of the city of Ponta Delgada, the whole island is easily accessible. See below for more information on Sao Miguel island.
