Quinta Das Acacias update - Accomodation in Azores (Sao Miguel)
Quinta Das Acacias is one of the best places to go for accommodation in Sao Miguel Azores. It is a serene, tranquil setting with plenty of space to relax. During the day there is much to see on the grounds and at night there are a lot of stars to enjoy.
Note that many of these pictures are a couple years out of date. The cottages have had updates and the grounds are even better looking now!

When you spend time on the grounds you will notice a calm and quiet feel thanks to all the open space occupied only by gardens and trees. You will notice the chirping of birds and almost no other noise. It is a great place to relieve stress, slow down, and use as your home front as you explore Sao Miguel Azores.
I visited there most recently in November 2009 and took many pictures of the grounds to compliment the information already on the Accommodation in Azores page about the Quinta.
The grounds at the Quinta are like a living piece of art. And it is no wonder as they are maintained by an artist at heart (all of the sculptures are by Eduino). It seems as though there is always something in bloom there and that the landscaping is immaculate. I would venture to say that the grounds at the Quinta feature one of the best gardens in the Azores. Here is a small sampling of pictures from November 2009:
