Building A Leading Eco Hotel

The Comfiest Beds In The Azores

Breathe in the clear Atlantic air as you walk through the citrus-inspired gardens. Take in the view over green hills to the ocean beyond. Hideout, forage, think in peace. 

Enjoy this beautiful heritage home, built over 100 years ago, lovingly restored and brought back to life.

Sleep in the big, dreamy beds. Hike, run, read. Relax. Put your phone down. Laugh out loud. Dream. Enjoy life with those around you.

Low Carbon Luxury

Sustainability does not mean forgoing luxury, it means making a careful and conscious balance in what we do each day, and the impact we have on the environment. Taking a moment out to consciously buy and consume local products, improving our own wellbeing as well as those who live and work in the Azores.

The Solar Branco Eco Estate is proud to be a leader in this growing movement. Our hotel and experiences eschew exotic or unnecessary products and foods, opting for local over global and removing unnecessary plastic from all areas of the hotel.

Enjoy Azorean wine on arrival as you sit back and watch the sunset over the green hills to the ocean beyond. Feast on our free-range, fresh eggs from the ladies who roam on the estate. Drink our locally infused gin 38ºN 28ºW.

Turn your phone off. Breathe. Take some time for yourself.


Guest Experiences
