Quinta do Sanguinhal offers an eco-friendly environment. You will have complementary full access to an organic vegetable garden to pick fresh vegetables and a chicken coop with fresh eggs daily. We do not use any harmful substances in the home, so as this is a country home, it is likely you may encounter some insects like a few ants mostly in the early summer.

During the winter and early spring, due to a high humidity index, you might find some humidity build up on the walls close to the floor. This is present in every home on the islands and is harmless. Our home is equipped with a large supply of firewood for the fireplace that heats up the home and eliminates humidity.

This unique enclosed property, features extraordinary mountain and ocean views. You will be marveled by the breathtaking sunrises and the extraordinary view of nothing but the Atlantic in front of you. Because it is situated away form the town, it offers a very peaceful and quiet atmosphere where nature can be viewed, heard and enjoyed.

Besides the wide variety of activities that the island has to offer, there are many activities to engage in during your stay at Quinta do Sanguinhal. This part of the island offers a wide variety of beautiful trails. Ask your hosts for advice on the best places to explore..Home made meals can also be made available if requested and for extra charge.

We welcome you to this unique refuge off the beaten path.
