The delightful Quinta do Vale has been tastefully restored to a high standard, combining contemporary and traditional furnishings and decorated throughout with beautiful dark wood flooring covered with intricate woven rugs.
Just 3km from Horta, this is one of the few places on the islands where sustainable energy has been incorporated into the design and 70% of the Quinta do Vale’s hot water is heated by solar panels and water is sourced from a private tank on the hills above.
There are 10 ensuite rooms, both double and twin. All rooms have air conditioning cable TV and internet connection. There is also a large reception and lounge area with comfy sofas and TV and a breakfast room which overlooks the well maintained gardens and pretty saltwater swimming pool and sun terrace. Home-made products are served for breakfast. Snack lunches and dinner can be provided on request but there is a supermarket 300m away and two good restaurants within 600m.
Quinta do Vale is just 5 minutes drive from the pretty cosmopolitan town of Horta on Faial island. We recommend hiring a car if staying here. 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.
