The Quinta do Mar boutique hotel is one of those rare finds in life; sumptuous surroundings, delightful location and wonderful hosts.

This former adega (winery) in the fishing hamlet of Caloura has been tastefully renovated and brought back to life by its current owners; Chris and Nick, resulting in a tasteful mix of modern living space and original features.

The Quinta was first opened in 2005 and offers guests secluded terraces and relaxing communal areas with short walking trails through the gardens to the hillside at the back of the property. The guest lounge has antique Chinese furniture and hand made Persian carpets and there is also a comfortable dining room, where Chris cooks special meals on certain nights in the week should guests choose to eat in.

Breakfasts and snacks are served in the stylish garden ‘pavilion’with sliding doors and views over the pool, the orange grove and ocean beyond.

There are four large en-suite guest rooms at the Quinta do Mar, each with balconies and sea views, air-conditioning, TV, DVD players, direct dial telephones, internet access.

Please note that the minimum age of guests is 14 years.

Located half way along the south coast of São Miguel in the pretty fishing port of Caloura, this is an ideal location for exploring the whole island. As there are limited restaurant choices and it's a quiet location, we recommend having a hire car to give you more freedom. See below for more information on São Miguel island.


There are so many activities available on São Miguel. All are within a short drive of Quinta do Mar and many of them, we can arrange for you to be picked up for.
