About the property

Welcome to 'Quinta da Faia'

We are happy to share our guest house with those who want to visit this wonderful island - S.Miguel.

We live in a farm bought two and half years ago to a very intelligent, friendly and special man, who decided to sell the farm, because he could not work anymore, due to the difficulties of his age.

Now, we are recovering gradually old fruit trees and replacing those that have completed their life cycle. We decided to convert the farm to organic production, more environment friendly.

We have some farm animals: hens, roosters, ducks, geese, turkeys and three female dogs. Guests can feed the animals, if they want.

The farm is located on the board of Ribeira Grande and belongs to the parish of Rabo de Peixe, although, it is a bit far away from the center and it is isolated and in a very quiet area with beautiful views of the sea and mountains.

We are near the three cities of the island: Ribeira Grande is six km far, Lagoa is also about six kilometers far and Ponta Delgada is around ten Km. Is it very easy to visit the island from this location.

If you book our accommodation, it is necessary to rent a car and it will be easier to visit the interesting spots of the island.

If necessary, we can meet the guests at the airport to show the way to the farm, no adicional charge.

Guests can eat fresh eggs from our hens and female ducks and they can also eat fruit caught by them.

This lovely old stone cottage was recently renovated. It is an open space: bedroom, kitchen and sitting area, hall and private bathroom. It is suitable for 2 or 3 adults ( double bed and sofa-bed) or 2 adults and 2 young children.

Enjoy your stay.

Best regards.
