The Azores | Premium Aparthotel Downtown
Stay at The Shipyard Angra, a brand new amazing aparthotel complex in downtown Angra do Heroísmo!
Why we love this deal:
- Terceira Island is a favorite among travelers who fly out of Boston to the Azores, or from Toronto to the Azores. Not only is Terceira closer, but it is also a very unique island, where you can spend a full week, at least, without ever getting bored or running out of new things to do and see. There’s a reason why people say the Azores have ‘’eight islands and an amusement park’’, and guess which island they are calling the amusement park? Terceira Island, of course!
- The Shipyard Angra is a hotel inspired by nature and the woods, which is decorated in a stylish nautic them -- the perfect motif to mirror the ever-present oceanic inspiration of Terceira Island life;
- You can customize your travel itinerary as you wish, adding more nights to your stay, opting for more experiences, or even adding a car rental to make your stay even more special.
