I have been visiting Faial in June this year, and stayed guest of this B&B in Horta, for three nights. 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

We stayed for three nights in September in a second floor room (first floor in Europe) with a balcony overlooking Horta with a direct view of Pico mountain on Pico. The rooms are spotless and spacious and the balcony provides wonderful outdoor access. The only thing better than the spectacular view is the gracious hostess, Yvette. She makes you feel... More

We arrived to Vila Beligica back in august while on a three week vacation in August that included the Azores as well as time on the mainland. My husband and I were very impressed by this beautiful bed and breakfast. The location in comparison to Horta is fanatastic - a moderately easy hike downwards to get into the city centre,... More
