We have been doing holidays in Azores since 1991, until one day in 2005, we definitively fall in love with Pico and decide to by a ruin to rebuild.

After traveling to all Azorean islands we choose Pico because it's pure nature, the mountain as a special impact, it's one of the best places in the world for whale watching and people are really nice.

Fernando Almeida purchased this house in 2005

Since the beginning the idea was to create a place that is simple but comfortable, where a visitor could feel like if it was at home.

The house is equipped has if we live there, and has lots of pieces that make part of our live, arriving there you can fell you are making part of a story, not only staying in a house.

It's very curious that several customers when we speak with them after their stay, comment that they felt like at home :)

The quietness from the house, the whale tradition from Calheta de Nesquim, the amazing natural pool - one of the best in the Azores - are some of the good reasons to stay with us.

The the amazing view from the terrace and the sympathy from Mrs Natalia and Mrs Noelia that are always available to help.

Very nice little holiday adega with a magic view over the sea! The terrace is superb as it is covered. So wind and even rain will not disturb the view on the magic sea. We saw dolphins every day from the house (different species, big and small groups). Sometimes very near! We even managed to see the blows of baleen whales with our binoculars! Fantastic. It is a vey calm place, nice garden and the kitchen is well equipped. Very friendly household lady that cares for all your little problems. If you want to calm down, relax and enjoy a splendid view over the endless ocean this is your place to be! We did some nice walkings nearby, some great dolphin and whale watching tours (with lots of baleen whlaes and dolphins) and had fish for dinner every second day. Our small baby (1.5year) enjoyed the stay as much as we did!

Lovely house in a great location

  • 5 out of 5
If you are looking for something special, rent a house Adega Figuera in Calheta de Nesquim. You will find your "home" for your holiday on the island of Pico. At the moment you become inhabitants of this unique island. Thanks to its location the property offers stunning ocean views. Breakfast on the terrace and view of the ocean filling the fishing boats, jumping dolphins has become a regular ritual each new day I spent in this house. Similarly, I enjoyed every evening to the voices of the ocean as the waves encounter lava. I sat on the terrace into the late evening hours and endured incredible luck. My companions in the evening were "Cagarros", talking birds ...
I am really very happy that I chose for my holiday house Adega Figuera, magical place full of peace and beauty and I highly recommend it to all who seek peace and quiet.
Dear Maria & Fernando, thank you very much for the warm welcome and thank you both that I could at least several days to become a part of your beautiful home. I wish you all the best. Next spring I'll be back to your house, where again I live through my new beautiful holiday.
With love
Irena

Best place ever!

  • 5 out of 5
This is one of the most beautiful places we've ever been!
The great view over the ocean from the breakfast table... watching Dolphins from the house.. everything very clean and tasteful decorated. It really felt like home!
A place were you will find rest and where you can enjoy all beauty of nature!
The temperature was great during our stay and we could cool down in the natural pool close by.
This is for sure a place we will come back!

Amazing Adega da Figueira with great traditional rustic room design, lovely relaxed atmosphere. The House was so beautiful and comfy, very quiet too at night. This was lovely. Can't recommend it highly enough. We were very impressed.

Charming holiday home with panoramic terrace

  • 5 out of 5
Very nice house inmidst untouristy "real Azores"-area. Although built anew with original stones and tiles, it looks very much like the historic adegas that you'll find in the neighbourhood. The panoramic view from the terrace is fantastic - the sea and the sky is ever changing, the scenery with its lights and shades simply stunning. The new roof over the terrace allows you to stay outside all day long. Watching dolphins (5 different species) is something we'll never forget (bring binoculars with you!). We liked the nice walks to the sea, to Calheta de Nesquim and to the country side. The island itself is very nice, very quiet, lots of unspoiled nature (full of flowers) - and the roads are in very good shape (even the smaller mountain roads that lead you through the thrilling mists that you often find in the upper mountain regions). The sea was surprisingly warm, the natural pools are a good protection from the currents and the waves (ideal also for kids).
Noelia and Natalia were very friendly and helpful in every way; thanks again to Maria and Fernando, the owners, for a fabulous holiday. Our two weeks seemed to fly away - next time we'll stay for longer!
