we do things differently here at the solar branco eco estate

Make a Difference

A leading Eco Hotel in the Azores: Sustainability and sustainable tourism are the foundations that The Solar Branco Eco Estate are built upon. With this in mind every stay at The Solar Branco Eco Estate will contribute to the environment and community around us, supporting two charitable programs, reflecting the island of Sao Miguel, from land to sea. Guests are invited to support the protection of the environment and waters around the Azores through The Ocean Azores Foundation.

The outbreak of Covid-19 has brought so much damage to the tourism based economy of the Azores. With this in mind, we have doubled down on our #weloveazores pledge. This is our commitment to locally source as close as possible to 100% of our food and drinks served here at The Solar Branco Eco Estate and The Gin Library. We have also created a dedicated area of our website to help all guests and visitors to the island discover local producers, restaurants and experiences.

We are aware that there will always be more to do and we are constantly looking at how we can be more sustainable and balance our footprint on the Azores.
