What it is the Casal do Vulcao ? Brief History On September 16 1957 seismic activity began at Capelinhos Volcano. Two hundred low intensity earthquakes occurred between the 16 and 27. The underwater volcanic activity began on September 27, causing an enormous eruption that lasted until October 1958. After this Natural disaster, hundreds of people abandoned their homes and immigrated to other countries, generally to the United States of America. The Casal do Vulcao was built at ruins caused by the eruption at Capelinhos Volcano. Designation The name "Casal do Vulcao” emerged because of its proximity to the Capelinhos Volcano. “Casal” because it is a group of four buildings and a reservoir used for tourism in rural areas, the houses are models of rustic ranch homes, within a 1,0000 square meters enclosure.

Spacious and comfortsble rooms, with everything you need: fridge, cutlery, etc. There is a nice garden/terrace and swimming pool you can use, as well as grill your food outside. You can even walk to Capelinhos if you want. Very affordable and very friendly staff.

We were not really satisfied by this hotel for several reasons: - There is no proper welcome. The cleaning lady is showing you the door of your room without saying a single word to you. That being said, the landlady came to greet us a few days later. - The place is noisy if you stay on the ground floor. We had to cope with kids jumping and running over our heads. You can hear people walk and talk. Probably not the best accomodation for couples/friends who want to relax in peace. - One day, while we were away, the cleaning lady came into our room to take one of our pillows (obviously being used since it was on our bed). Her explanation: she gave it to another room. Never experienced that anywhere else!! - Half of all light bulbs were missing or not working in our house (Casa do Palheiro). - Not a single outlet was working in our bedroom, so you can forget the bedside lamps. - The water heater is not working properly so taking a hot shower is a pretty tedious process. We were glad to leave and won't recommend this place at all. Too many inconvenients and the staff's behaviour is a bit discussable.

We stayed 5 nights at this wonderful place. It is situated near the Capelinos about half an hours drive from Horta. Are you looking for a place out of town this is the place for you. Within 10 minutes drive there is good restaurants and small grocery shops. We had our own house with a bedroom and a combined kitchen and living room. The beautiful garden has a little pool, table and chairs and a small playground. The owner and the cleaning lady is really nice and helpful. Do contact the owner on the phone before you arrive, since she doesn't live on the property. She was unable to meet us at checkin but she left the door open and came by in the evening to welcome us. The service was great, every morning there was a bag with fresh bread hanging on the door, and the cleaning lady did our laundry with no extra cost.

Everything is perfect in this place, the welcome, the atmosphere and the surroundings. We rented a self-catered apartment for a week. The owners supported us in everything, from arranging a car rental for us (directly at Horta airport) to restaurants, to places to visit. Every morning the bakery left fresh bread and croissants on our doorstep! Just amazing.
