Car: Recommended

The central position of Quinta das Acacias exposes unreserved access to the visitor that seeks a world of discovery. An 8 km drive to the center of Ponta Delgada will expose several botanical gardens dating back to mid 19th century. Centuries old architecture of basalt stone, traditional markets, quaint shops in narrow streets with cobblestone designs, sidewalk cafes and the numerous restaurants that will help the visitor taste this travelling experience. Populo beach with its clean waters and warm temperature is only 2 km to the south. To the west, one will find the legendary twin lakes of Sete Cidades. To the east, the hills of Nordeste displays an almost rain forest appeal. Beyond, villages with timeless traditions line the coast that so often is bathed by some of the most spectacular sunrises of the Atlantic. The true lover of nature will not resist the affair that Sao Miguel has to offer. (Google Earth-Lat. 37´45´16´34´N,Long.25´36´12´61´W)

Other Activities: hiking, whale watching, historic parks, museums

Golf: Two Golf Courses on the island of Sao Miguel. Both equally spectacular, scenic-wise and challenge-wise. The Batalha course supports a 27 hole, par 72. Approximate distance 12 km or 15 minute drive. The Furnas course is an 18 hole, par 72. Approximate distance 35 km or 45 minute drive. Batalha Golf course hosted the Senior European golf tournament in 2008.

Thermal pools of Poca Dona Beija in Furnas is fantastic during the cooler seasons.

Quinta das Acacias Rural Accommodations

Year Purchased: 2006

About: Eduino and Bonita Sosua made a life transition when they moved to Sao Miguel in 2006. Eduino, born on Sao Miguel, immigrated as a young boy with his family to western Canada in 1968. He met Bonita in College. Throughout the years they have developed expertise in several career environments. Eduino´s profession as a welder developed into a successful art career in metal sculpting. His sculptures are displayed in Canada, United States, France, Belgium and the Azores. A private collection of his works is displayed in Quinta das Acacias; the only private sculptural gardens in the Azores. Bonita, born in Canada has worked more than two decades in sales, administration and bookkeeping. These career experiences have led Eduino and Bonita into a rewarding business of investment and property managment. After travelling to the Azores on vacation with their sons, they pursued the idea of purchasing a vacation home. In the process, they were introduced to Quinta das Acacias. They purchased the quinta in December, 2006 and opened the doors to world travellers in 2007 with new and improved operations. Today, the proven success of Quinta das Acacias enables Eduino and Bonita to help outside visitors with the purchase and management of their dream vacation home,. Our goal is to greet and service our guests to the best of our capabilities and see that they leave as new friends with many fond memories to return.
