Quinta da Abelheira
Where to stay
Quinta da Abelheira, one unit of the Azorean Bliss group, is located in Fajã de Baixo, 4 km away from Ponta Delgada, in the Azores. It is surrounded by a vast forest containing hundreds of unique species. The main building was completely refurnished, it has a large porch and several furnished nooks in a cosy surrounding, making them the perfect locations to simply relax or enjoy a book. The house sits beside a beautiful garden with a pool, a barbecue area and a freshwater fountain built with typical XIX century tiles. Moving along a trail up the hill, you may enjoy the comforting peace that nature has to offer, only interrupted by the singing of the many different native birds. At the top, there is a view that offers a unique perspective of the island and the Atlantic. Those who love the shore may enjoy the exquisite dark sand beaches of Pópulo and Milícias, which are less than 2km away.
