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

We stayed 7 nights in Vila Belgica and we enjoyed it very much! Vila Belgica is situated higher up which allows you a fabulous view over the green Island, the city of Horta, the ocean and two other islands of the Azores. We spent a lot of time on the terrace reading or just enjoying the view. We were warmly... More

What a superb location above the town of Horta with fabulous views towards the Pico island and in the far distance Sao Jorge island! But our amazement was not only about the views: upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by Yvette and Nathalie who made us feel at home right from the start. They gave us excellent tips for our... More

The bed was cracking, the light in the bathroom was not working, we payed for a suite, but there was not even a small table and chair in the room. We made a reservation that was ignored, they asked us to keep our mouth when we were trying too argue, the breakfast was limited - the coffee was cold -... More

We confirmed the Normal Bedroom - there was no Master Bedroom or Atlantic Room more available - so we suggested the Normal Bedroom - cheaper but smaller - clients agreed and paid for the Normal Bedroom. The bathroom light does work, I always explain how to start it - if it should not work clients should have told me at... More
