Construction and Furniture
Hotel na Ilha do Faial
During the reconstruction of the houses, we only used wood coming from commercial forest plantations in the Azores and the Portuguese mainland.
For furniture and decoration, we restored antiques combined with woods that had been previously used, tributing our heritage and avoiding the new furniture manufacturing and its transportation, therefore creating a unique language of design and inner decoration.
Our outdoor furniture is also made of wood so that we can maintain it every year and avoid using plastic.
We prefer architectural solutions with natural lighting and common areas, as well as efficient aeration and heating systems.
Working with the Society
Quinta da Meia Eira is a family-owned company that seeks to be socially fair in its working and commercial relationships and to be open to society.
Although part of our activity is seasonal, we keep our employees throughout the year.
Our employees have a permanent bond, which means that they have job security and can face the future with confidence.
We provide several school field trips, internships and professional training, free of charge, both in the areas of tourism and agricultural activity.
We prefer local products and local companies, and their environment and social conduct is equally important to us.
We participate in local and regional organizations and are always open to new initiatives
