Quinta do Bom Despacho

Eco-friendly property in historic Ponta Delgada …

Ideally located just outside the historic centre of Ponta Delgada, Quinta do Bom Despacho is the home of sustainable holidays and events in the Azorean capital. We offer a unique experience combining awe-inspiring historic splendour with innovative concepts and ecological technologies that are anchored in a certified commitment to sustainable development.

The extensive gardens and outdoors facilities include a natural swimming pond, a sensory garden, an Azorean species border, an organic vegetable growing and orchard area, an amazing greenhouse, state-of-the-art composting facilities, an edible forest, and an historic orange grove. Guests can access all gardens and pickup the produced organic products (vegetables, fruits and aromatic plants) free of charge to use in their meals.

Due to the restrictions caused by the pandemic, at the moment we’re only able to offer either group bookings for the entire house or one of its floors, or individual reservations for specific rooms namely: 1, 2 and 3 – all with private entrances that allow for social distancing. For the same reason, breakfast is currently not being served.
