The buildings are all of traditional black lava stone brightened with red woodwork for the shutters and doors and inside the floors are all polished wood. The accommodation is fresh and spacious with air conditioning and excellent facilities (especially in the kitchens).

Air conditioning






Located on the outskirts of the small village of Capelo, it is just 1km from the most important volcanic site on the Azores; the volcano of Capelinhos and its excellent interactive museum. The accommodation is around 35 minutes from Horta and 25 minutes from the airport on the island of Faial. See below for more information on Faial island.


Nowhere is too far away on Faial and there is some excellent walking nearby but most other activities start and finish in Horta, so we recommend hiring a car.
