Iris is a modern furnished but cozy little cottage for 2 people with great views (garden, ocean and the neighbour island São Jorge). The house was just finished Oct 2017 when we moved in and we fell in love with it. We had a nice and friendly welcome by the landlord family with a dog and cats. Wonderful to watch the sunrise over the sea even from the bed. Or having breakfast on the terrace with a view in the beautiful garden with typical plants, flowers and trees of the Azores. Or looking
in the starry sky... The house has a modern bathroom, well equipped kitchen, really, good beds and a TV. Photos and description correspond to the reality. WLAN access only in the large, well-equipped library (lounge).
The Quinta do Milhafre is a lovingly landscaped holiday complex with 4 houses. Iris is the smallest but the newest house. The whole, expansive property is well-maintained and very quiet with no traffic, wonderful to relax during daytime and sleep in the night.
There is a little supermarket and restaurant at Piedade but a rental car is recommendedto see the island Pico.
We would go back anytime and highly recommended a stay at Quinta do Milhafre.
Thanks to Cindy and her whole family we had a unforgettable, wonderful time on Pico!
From the moment we booked until after we left Paulo and family looked after us and provided great and accurate information and advice which simply meant we could just get on with our holiday. The view is as the picture and at night... Well if you stay up till the stars shine then you are in for a treat!
A car is a definite not a maybe and for getting into the inter-land parts of the island a car, not a 4x4 is fine.
Take time to sit with the locals in a cafe and just watch the interaction... It's fun and educating!
We would definitely visit again and stay at this house and would suggest you do the same.
