Located 15-20 minutes walk from the marina, this lovely guesthouse offers a comfortable retreat from the hustle and bustle of Horta.
Estrela do Atlântico, which translates as ‘Star of the Atlantic’ is situated on the slopes of a residential area in Horta and combines a tasteful mix of Azorean architecture and a bohemian interior. Your hosts, Ruth and Chay, are very welcoming and have created a pleasant alternative to the larger hotels in town and since opening in June 2006, Estrela has become a popular choice with our guests.
There are 5 en-suite rooms, 2 of which are suites (both have a kitchenette and one has a balcony).
10 minutes walk from the centre of Horta on Faial island, Estrela do Atlântico is located above town but still close enough in to pop out to local restaurants and down to the marina. See below for more information on Faial island.
Most activities on Faial start from Horta so being at the Estrela is an ideal base. Alternatively, you could hire a car and explore this stunning island on your own.
