Quinta da Terça is just 10 minutes drive from Ponta Delgada, this lovely 17th century manor house provides wonderful accommodation especially for horse riders with its very own indoor schooling arena and stable . The owners, Christine and Claude are delightful and are famous for their hospitality.
At Quinta da Terça there are five guestrooms each with private bathroom (shower) made up of three doubles and two twins. All rooms have cable TV and a small selection of toiletries.
All meals can be provided and are served in the rustic dining room which was the old stables. All meals are prepared with delicious produce from the island. You might even get the odd horse popping its head through the window as you eat!
The grounds are spacious and lovely for relaxing in – either on the veranda, in the gardens or in the paddocks close by.
All in all a unique place to stay on this spectacular island.
Located in Livramento just 10 minutes drive from the heart of Ponta Delgada and 2km from the sandy south coast beaches of Pópulo and Milícias, this is a great base for exploring São Miguel. See below for more information on São Miguel island.
Primarily a base for horse riders as many guests will stay for a week of riding. However, it is a lovely traditional guesthouse in a good location for all the activities the island has to offer. We would recommend having a hire car if staying here.
