Quinta das Acacias

(USA)

Hi Rob, I found your Azores website while preparing to take my wife and three other couples (friends) to the Azores in March on a quasi-business trip that's really just an excuse to see the lovely land where my wife's ancestors come from. I just read your page about Ed and Bonita's place and your half-day sailing adventure and I think that's exactly the kind of trip I want for my group. Anything else you'd care to share about Ed and Bonita before I book with them? We're old fogies (50+) and we really want peace and quiet (except birdsong of course) and I guess I'm wondering if that's what we'll find at their Quinta.

Thanks for all your writings about the Azores! Very, very helpful!!
--Best regards, Bob

Hi Bob (what a coincidence that the first two people to ask me a question have the same name as me)

Thanks for asking about Quinta das Acacias.

And thank you very much for your compliment about my website. It's a work in progress that I really enjoy.

Ed and Bonita are wonderful hosts and will do whatever they can to make your stay comfortable and pleasant. They have wonderful grounds, so peaceful and tranquil. There is room for more cottages than the seven units they have,
but they want an atmosphere where everyone has plenty of space. Yes, you will find it to be very peaceful and quiet.

The cottages themselves are quite comfortable and very clean. You will have just about everything you will need.

Ed and Bonita are mature, hospitable and respectful of your privacy and speak great english.

I guess what I am saying is that I would be shocked if you did not find peace and quiet on their property (aside from the singing of the birds).

In March, the Azores can be bit cooler and a bit damp at night. For this reason it might be nice to have one of their units with a fireplace or
woodstove. I believe they charge extra for wood (a nominal amount) which is normal for the islands. You'll get by fine without, but it's nice to have.

Sailing can be hit and miss in March. The ideal time to go for a beautiful sunny day on the water is May through early October.

Oh, and one more thought ... you are likely to meet a lovely couple from Finland who spend several months of the year at the Quinta.

If I can answer any other questions. Please don't hesitate. Bonita and Eduino should be happy to answer specific questions as well.

Please let me know how you make out.

All the best
Rob Belchior
