The Concept

Surrounded by a vast, blue sea, the archipelago of the Azores is a very special destination, with beautiful landscapes, hidden waterfalls, and hiking trails surrounded by an exuberant nature. Ecotourism is one of the main attractions of the archipelago.

Perfectly adjusted to the surrounding environment, Quinta da Grotinha replicates Azorean simplicity and friendliness.

This is an informal space, one that respects the rhythm of nature and is rooted in the great little pleasures of life.


The three houses were improved and decorated in order to welcome you with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, the perfect accommodation for those who wish to visit the island of São Miguel and get acquainted with its diverse nature in a more personal and relaxed manner.

On arrival, you will be driven from the airport to the property. Once installed, you will be offered a welcome dinner, made of fresh, local products, to enjoy during the evening, while some secrets on the island are disclosed.
