Quinta do Bom Despacho is a charming estate just a stone's throw from the centre of São Miguel's capital Ponta Delgada, at the very heart of the Atlantic Ocean. Originally built in the 1700s as a large family home, it has recently been re-conceptualized into a unique and versatile space for sustainable holidays and events. The property offers 10 uber-comfortable double bedrooms that have been decorated to suit their individual character and the hosts' prevailing concepts, and there is a range of spaces and facilities to help you host unforgettable events. 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. The "chillout hangout" (an elevated area with outdoor lights and power-plugs where you can use bean bags for utter relaxation or hard work) is also worth mentioning.
