About the Estate | Accommodation
Can I check in early:
Early check-in or late check-out are subject to availability. You are always welcome to leave your bags with us if your room is not available outside of the standard check in / check out times. If you are island hopping we can hold your bags for free.
Do you serve breakfast:
Breakfast is included in your room rate. You can enjoy your breakfast in the the dining room, where you’ll find a buffet specialising in delicious, local ingredients, along with a-la-carte options cooked to order. If you’d like to enjoy breakfast in your room, we can deliver a breakfast basket at no extra charge.
Do you serve lunch and dinner:
São Miguel has many excellent restaurants and we encourage our guests to try them out. Our team is always delighted to help with suggestions, reservations and transport arrangements. Most of our accommodation includes a kitchen, and we can help you stock up with food for your lunches and dinners. We can also arrange catering on site with advance notice.
Do you have a pool:
We are planning to have a natural swimming pool on the estate. This will be free of chemicals, but perfectly safe for swimming.
What makes you a leading sustainable / Eco-hotel:
Thank you for asking. We are applying for an international accreditation as an Eco-hotel. To learn more about our sustainability initiatives and goals, and progress towards them, please visit our page
Are you pet friendly:

Can I meet your dogs:
Our dogs live away from the guest areas. They love to meet guests. We have a designated area in the field where we can arrange for you to spend a little time with them.
I don’t like dogs / I’m allergic to dogs:
That is OK. Our dogs do not come into the guest areas.
