Solar de Lalém is situated above a quiet village on the North coast of São Miguel. The oldest part of this spacious aristocratic manor house dates back to 1687, with the final reconstruction taking place in 1850.
There are antiques throughout the house and a rustic dining room and cosy bar. Evening meals are available on request only. Outside, you can relax on the large terrace which looks out over the ocean, the private pool and subtropical garden.
Solar de Lalém has 10 bedrooms; six in the main house (including one suite) and four in the more modern garden house. All rooms have private bathrooms and are individually decorated for a more homely feel. There is also a lovely 2 bedroom cottage in the gardens for self catering.
Minimum stay: 2 nights
Closed: November to February
Situated on the north coast of São Miguel just above the pretty coastal village of Maia, Solar de Lalém is just 20 minutes drive from the spa town of Furnas and 35 minutes from Ponta Delgada and the airport. 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 Solar de Lalém, and many of them we can arrange for you to be picked up for. However, we would recommend hiring a car if staying here.
Azores Choice provided a prompt, helpful service. they found us the perfect accommodation for our needs and provided superb, expert advice on how to spend our week walking on San Miguel. I would certainly use them again.
