Solar Branco 1885 Eco-Estate

Take a moment and breathe in the clear Atlantic air as you walk through the citrus-inspired gardens, taking in the view looking majestically towards the ocean. Hideout, forage, think in peace. Enjoy this beautiful home, built over 100 years ago, lovingly restored with a focus on sustainability Sleep in the big, dreamy beds, hike, laugh, enjoy a G&T with freshly picked herbs. Put your phone down, laugh out loud and enjoy life with those around you.

Known in the local area as, “Solar Branco,” translateing in English as “large white house.” The estate originates from the 1800s, with the main Solar completed around 1885. A building with historical and cultural significance, it is one of the finest examples in the Azores. A rich history from the citrus trade, now, some 100 years later carefully restored to its former glory. We look forward to welcoming you to the Solar Branco 1885 Eco-Estate.
