Welcome To Solar Branco 1885

Opening to guests in 2019

Conveniently located just 10 minutes drive from the main town of Ponta Delgada as well as the airport. Local shops and the beach are a short drive or walk away.

The property has a number of rooms available, each has a wonderfully large and comfortable double bed as well as on-suite toilet and shower facilities. Each guest is entitled to a complimentary G&T at The Secret Gin Club located in the library – Please note, this area is strictly for adult guests or by invitation only. The property also has a kitchen for guests to use as well as a breakfast room and lounge on the ground floor.

The property has several large garden areas that are exclusive to our guests to enjoy. There is plenty of parking should you have a hire car and mountain bikes are available for guests usage. We also offer the chance to paint a tile, leaving a memory in the Azores as well as a number of other experiences such as whale watching and tours around this amazing island, please click here for more details.

The house has 4 generous bedrooms if you are hiring the whole house, and each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. The kitchen is available for everyone to use (in fact we actively encourage people to use it, no better place to  get to know people.)

And of course, most importantly, guests of Solar Branco 1885 have access to the Secret Gin CLub. We have over 300 gins from around the world to showcase and enjoy. Your stay includes a complimentary G&T on arrival as well as the opportunity to take part in a gin tasting. If you bring a gin that we don’t have (it must be a craft gin, and unopened) then you don’t have to pay for the gin tasting.

The house is designed to be a welcoming place for you to relax. Want to be active, there are hikes, mountain biking and whale watching opportunities. Want to relax in peace and quiet, turn off your phone and speak to no-one, we got you covered. The gardens are available for you to enjoy as well as a number of benches to sit on and just watch the world go by. Children are only allowed on the property if you book the whole house. When mixed guests are staying, we do not take bookings for under16s. Thank you for your understanding.


We live on the grounds of the property so are available to help with any questions and enquiries you should have while you stay with us. Please do check out our experiences and feel free to book any of these in advance or speak to us on your arrival.
