Why We Love Jardim dos Aloes

It’s an unusual place that stands out from the crowd - the Garden of Aloes (Jardim dos Aloés) nestles in the heart of an old island town.

A charming family-run bed and breakfast created from ancient rooms of different colours named after aloes growing in the lush garden.

Tasteful ornaments and fascinating old clocks, gramophones, radios and other age-old reminders of another more unhurried and cultured time.

Aloe Vera is a 2-bedroom double-story apartment for families with a balcony overlooking the aloe garden and a new swimming pool.
