Quinta Rico is located on the northern Coast of Terceira Island, in the small village of Quatro Ribeiras. It’s situated on a rocky massive seafront at high elevation, and is crossed by four small rivers; Ribeira Grande, Ribeira Pequena, Ribeira Seca and Ribeira do Almeida, (This where the village gets it’s name from). According to history, this was the landing place of the Portuguese explorers and the first settlement of the island. Quinta Rico is located about 250m from the village Centre. About 200 meters from the market and 500 meters from the bathing area of Quatro Ribeiras commonly called as natural pools. These natural pools are in a high cliff zone, which is classified as a Community Interest Zone and is surrounded by abundant endemic flora typical of forests in the Macaronesian laurel forest. These rock formations, where the pools were formed, originate from solidified lava, known as basaltic rock. For centuries they have been continuously shaped by the crashing waves forming depressions and cavities that seawater now occupies. This area receives the water from the river Ribeira Urzal, were harnessed water is used to fuel the existing water mills. These pools provide good conditions for bathing and are equipped with toilets and showers facilities, bar and surveillance. At 5km one can also find the famous natural swimming pools in the small village of Biscoitos . Despite its northern location, the Farm is only 14 km from Lajes Airport and 17km from the town of Praia da Vitória. The town of Angra do Heroismo is located about 21 km south taking just 25 min drive from the interior of the island where you can observe the beautiful landscapes and local flora, as well as land used for grazing of bulls for the famous rope bullfights of Terceira Island. Every year on the first Wednesday and Thursday of August there is the traditional rope bullfight in the village of Quatro Ribeiras, which can be seen from the house. More
