The Solar Branco Eco Estate aims to be a leading Eco and sustainable hotel in the Azores. We believe in leading the way for sustainable tourism in the Azores. Eco: Our initiatives include a complete ban on single-use plastic and pesticides. We are the first in the Azores to commit to being a zero food waste hotel. In the gardens we have 2 dedicated wildlife ponds for frogs and local birds. Our chickens are all free-range, and our field is maintained with wildflowers, cut in stages only twice a year encouraging wildflowers for pollinators and other wildlife. Heritage: We are carefully restoring the estate, respecting its history and breathing new life into each building. Local: We employ local staff and buy the majority of our food produce from local vendors.
Ocean Azores Foundation: The Solar Branco Eco Estate in combination with our in-house brand Baleia Gin is working to support the Azores in several areas of marine and sustainable conservation. Read more on our commitment to sustainability and eco-tourism here.
