Quinta da Susy's Casa Hortensia is a traditional house in the authentic nature paradise, the Azores island of Terceira. The house has a view of the ocean and the village of Altares. The historical city of Angra do Heroismo (UNESCO World Heritage site) is a 20 minute drive across the island. Enjoy the island nature on walking trails and tours, swim in the natural lava pools, have the unique experience of descending a hundred meters into a dormant volcano and find top whale watching opportunities.

The space
Casa Hortensia at Quinta da Susy is a newly re-built traditional house with fully equipped kitchen, bathroom (shower) bed room and living room with an open fireplace. If needed we have on ground level other rooms that complement our offer. Enjoy private terrace and gardens. There is a terrace with exclusive access and a shared terrace with sea view. One of the best restaurants on the island serving traditional food, "Caneta" is within walking distance - 200m up the road. The natural lava pools of Biscoitos are a mere 5 minute drive away.

I have two homes, one in Rome, Italy and another in the Azores, Portugal (Terceira island) - I'm a generalist, lover of travel and all things interesting. My motto: The individual is supreme and finds his way through intuition.
