Horta - Stay with a local family, B&B and find a local guide

I will be sailing into Horta in late March and would love to find a nice B&B or stay with a local family for a few days to adjust to life back on land before flying back to the UK. A local guide would also be a plus.

I would be most grateful for any tips or advice.

The island it's very small, if you hire a taxi driver to do a tour it will be enough. The main points are the Caldeira on the top (if the clouds allow you to visit it) and the Capelinhos volcano area, with a great interpretation center.

Try the tourism office - Posto de Turismo do Faial, Rua Vasco da Gama,9900-117 Horta, Tel: +351 292 292 237, Fax: +351 292 292 006, Email: pt.fai@azores.gov.pt

If you want a small and clean B&B in the center of Horta, you can try Residencial Sao Francisco. I've stayed there and is ok for a short stay. If you prefer a Hotel, you can try Hotel Horta. The lovely view to Pico in the morning when you open your window is fantastic.

Don't forget to visit Peter's Bar and have a gin tonic :)
