The Quinta Meia Eira is located 10 km from Horta near to the airport and has wonderful views over the ocean and to Pico. This delightful conversion comprises two 19th century farmhouses which have been completely renovated to offer guests modern and fresh B&B accommodation in a rural environment. Outside, the grounds extend for 5 hectares right down to the sea and you can walk through the Quinta Meia Eira’s fields to the man-made swimming pools on the coast. The friendly owners live on-site and are very family orientated with 2 sons of their own.
The main house has two twin rooms with a shared bathroom (ideal for a family or friends) and also a lounge with wonderful sea views, a glassed southern facade and a balcony. The lounge also has lots of books, CDs, a piano and a guitar for guests of Quinta Meia Eira to use. The second house has a breakfast room which has a southern and western glassed facade, three twin rooms and two one-bedroom apartments (bedroom, living room, kitchenette) all with air conditioning and cable TV. One apartment has a small sofa bed in the lounge and the other has a double sofa bed.
Outside, there is a pretty terrace where you get great views of Castelo Branco, an impressive old crater of white rock and you can also do some birdwatching, whale watching and yacht spotting from here! Quinta Meia Eira has a wonderful freshwater swimming pool in the gardens (8m x 4m, 1.6m deep) set inside a glass house with lots of doors so it is indoor but very light and airy.
Quinta Meia Eira is located on Faial island 10km from Horta, 5 minutes walk from a restaurant and very close to the airport (don't worry there aren't many planes!), this is a rural location so a hire car is recommended. See below for more information on Faial island.
