The host, Yvette, gifs a very warm and personal welcome. She is always there for you with tips to visit the island of Faial, Pico and Sao Jorge. She makes reservations for activities and restaurants for you if you want. She is always very helpfully !! Breakfast is very nice! We needed to get a ferry once at 7am so... More

We have been at Vila Belgica with a group of 10 people for 10 days and Yvette received us with her friendly and open heart. Her House is situated top of a hill with a really 5 star view over Horta and to the famous Pico Vulcano on the next island. The Garden is lovely and so is her breakfast,... More

Above Horta and enroute to the caldeira, is the small 'Vila Belgica' bed and breakfast. While it's not easy to find the first time, you'll quickly realize that the drive isn't as confusing as it first seems, is only a 10-minute drive to "town" and the serenity, comfort and hospitality of the owner, Yvette, makes the stay totally worthwhile!

It is a very nice place to stay for either few days or for longer time , and consisting in a large house (the Vila) with dedicated and separated rooms for guests and a common breakfast room directly on a...

My husband and I spent our honeymoon in the Azores Islands and we had a great time! We spent few days at Vila Belgica and some other sailing. Vila Belgica has a fantastic terrace with views of Pico Island and the town of Horta. We had breakfast while enjoying this magnificent view and entered quickly into the laid-back lifestyle of...

it was very nice experience that I spent 4nights in this cozy,peaceful place. Months earlier me and the owner got touched via email. I booked the normal bedroom. and finally we met. To be honest,it's quite far from Horta.My google navigation lead me to a wrong place on the first day when I arrived Faial. Then I realized it's actually... More

We can't recommend Villa Belgica highly enough. Yvette was a wonderful hostess and her pretty guest house is perched high up above Horta with magnificent views. Yvette is originally from Belgium and speaks perfect English, French, Flemish and German. And of course can now speak Potugese! Whatever your nationality you will be able to converse with her!! We had the... More

We stayed here at the end of June and seeing all the excellent reviews, we were quite motivated to go here. We booked the normal bedroom at ground level. It’s probably because of the time of the year when we entered but it was very humid in the room. The bed felt a bit sticky and damp. I think they... More

After reviewing guest house accommodation on Faial, preferred to hotels, the Vila Belgica appeared to be the top B&B, and rightly so. It is in an elevated location, so can be affected by the low cloud and mists, as it was when we were there (but the sun shone brightly down in Horta). When clear, the views of Pico are... More
