We just spent a week staying at Maison d'hote Archipels as part of a group retreat. We were a group of 14, and we occupied the entire place. The village is delightfully quiet and calm, and its setting among beautiful, steep green mountains descending to the Atlantic is magical. (The only reason for giving the location a 4 rather than...

Last September we stayed at Archipels for a week... and it was an absolutely delightful experience...starting with the first view of the town...(we arrived at the dusk...so nice!)...then, we fall in love with the house, the furniture, the garden and the owner of the house: Anne. She helped us to plan our visit of the island, she knows what is...

Our apartment was the entire north side of the establishment- 3 bedrooms on top floor, a sizeable living dining area and a kitchen off the vestibule with a lovely private bathroom. All the island's east end...

In august we stayed for three nights at the Maison d'hote Archipels guesthouse. The house is located in a small and cozy village, which is surrounded with beautiful landscapes and nature. Guesthouse itself is in an older house and the guests have free use of the garden area and a big well equipped kitchen. The biggest bonus of the guesthouse,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Large independant accomodation and guest rooms for rent anytime of the year in a friendly and welcoming house. The house is a typical ancient azorean home but it was originally a café and a grocery: warm home with lots of charm and character, the original style has been preserved. Faial da terra is a welcoming village of 350 people. It is located in a beautiful location between the sea and mountains. Our home is located in a quiet place surrounded by nature and gardens. Only 600 meters from the sea, at 5 minute walk to the mountains and river. A beautiful waterfall only 40 minutes walk away. The house is separated into two: one side is a private appartment. Accomodation that can be used by a family, a couple or a group of friends. On the first floor there are two large bedrooms and one single all with the possibility of additional bed. The ground floor has a large entry which leads to a spacious open space with an open kitchen and sofa bed, shower room. A door-window lead to the garden. Guest rooms on the other side are on the first floor with a separate shared wc. They are spacious and bright, all double with space for additional bed if required. On the ground floor you will find the main bathroom, dining room, living room and kitchen which are shared. You are free to cook any time. Outside there is a garden planted with fruit trees, herbs and flowers. Barbecue area and a large terrace with sea view. Our house is situated in the wildest and mountainous part of the island with a lot of hiking possibilities but also at only 30 minutes from the famous furnas thermal and botanical area ... more   less
