Carmo Apartments are perched up on the hillside on the upper portion of the city of Horta, giving the guest a good vantage point to observe all the Sea traffic of the Pico-Fail channel.
Set in a quiet residential neighborhood, the Carmo building is very quiet both of the apartments that are presented here have the most desirable position, the penthouse or the top floor.
Upon entering the apartment the foyer leads to a large living room featuring ceiling to floor windows that makes the space sparkle with the reflection of the Ocean and Sky,
The romantic bedroom is large with a comfortable bed, soft furnishing, rugs in soft neutral colors. Privacy shutters ensure a good nights sleep.
The modern bathroom beacons one to pamper themselves by slipping into the deep soaker tub. The stylish and functional kitchen has an oven dishwasher and every single gadget a chef can ask for. The apartments make an ideal self-catering vacation home with the access of clothes washing and drying machines.
Ideally suited for adults.
since 2007, I have been welcoming guests from all over the World. My experience and knowledge has made me aware of my guest's wants, needs and expectations when choosing their ideal vacation home.
My intention is to provide a quality vacation accommodation, offer personal service and useful information for all of my guests.
I have been representing Carmo Apartments since 2012 providing travelers 2 stylish penthouse apartments with amazing views of the Pico Faial Channel.
I believe that staying in a private vacation rental in a residential neighborhood is a unique way of truly discovering everything that the city of Horta has to offer. From the history, culture, the arts, to the gastronomy of its people.
Why I chose to represent Carmo Apartments?
From the moment I entered each of the Carmo apartments, I instantly felt at home, the bright interior, with windows in every room allowing an incredible light to filter in.
I adore this apartment because of its simplicity, clean lines and modern furniture. Yet its warm and cozy with its hardwood floors and soft furnishing.
Acoustically the environment and setting is quiet and peaceful because both apartments are on the top floor or penthouse, only 2 units per floor, in a very quiet building, low traffic street, 2 minutes from the Centre of Horta.
I look forward to meeting you.
The Wow factor is definitely the large terrace and its views which beckons one to sit out in the evening with a glass of fine wine while admiring the skyline of Pico Mountain.
Its all here waiting for you!
If you choose it.
thousands of thanks for your warm welcome, and the kind and friendly way you cared for us. Whale watching recommended Dive Azores. Certainly we will return.
My wife and I spent 3 nights in this apartment during July 2016. During the visit, we had the benefit of three clear evenings and on one of the nights, we were given a view of the full moon directly over the Pico Volcano from the deck. As far as the apartment is concerned, the photos and description on HomeAway appeared to be straightforward. Keep in mind, this is a small, one bedroom penthouse unit (with an awe inspiring view of the Volcano). Our only regret was that it was not air conditioned, but we were aware of that when we rented the unit. There was one fan in the apartment and we would recommend that a 2nd fan be available. The washing machine was welcome as we travel very light. We found the apartment to be clean and everything was in working order. We had the benefit of not having anyone in the apartment next to us. If we did, we might have lost alittle privacy outside as the units are only semi divided on the terrace. The apartment is alittle difficult to locate initially as it is on the top of the hill and we had to navigate many one-way streets to find it. Keep in mind that walking down the hill to town can be very easy, however, walking up will be difficult. We opted to pay the 5 Euro fare for a taxi each evening to get back. Overall, we were satisfied with this rental and would rent it again if we returned to Horta.
Our family occupied these apartments. Located on the top floor with breathtaking views of Horta, the marina and Pico. Even though you are only a minute drive from downtown Horta, you don't feel like you are in the middle of the city. The veranda is open all around so you have access to the sun and sea air. The apartments are very clean, comfortable and modern, we were not lacking anything. We would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend it to our family and friends. The only negative which can not be helped but may be a serious concern for some traveling are the number of stairs. There are three sets of stairs which may be a challenge for those with leg and knee issues. For our family, these apartments were just perfect.
It rained for most of our stay in Horta - so thank goodness for this apartment! It really truly has everything you could want or need. TV, great internet, a well stocked kitchen, a washing machine, clothes line, dishwasher, a view, a balcony, comfortable bed/couch... etc. We didn't have a car so the walk up the hill was TOUGH. but without the hill there is no view. so we endured. I should also mention how wonderfully helpful Zelda was. She arranged for a pickup from the airport and met us at the apartment to show us around. She also had maps for us with recommendations on where to eat, hang out, and who to contact for excursions. We had a great time and if we're ever back... will stay in this apartment again.
The set is amazing. Best view to Pico and Horta. The apartment is in a very good condition, clean and modern equipped. You need to go a few steps but it is really worth it. With a car in the garage it's no problem at all. We stayed 10 days and felt really at home. The care of Zelda is like always "perfect". She makes your stay to a real wellness package! We enjoyed "Semana do Mar" each day, the music, the people and the very nice atmosphere during this festival.
We stayed here for two wonderful weeks and the view is simply stunning. Would highly recommend a car (free parking outside) as there is a steep hill from the main town centre but the views are worth it. The apartment is in excellent condition and has a well fitted kitchen. It is approx 20 minutes walk to main harbour, Peter's bar and whale watching. Zelda coud not have been more helpful, from initial enquiry to our final day! So we will return again and look forward to catching up with Zelda. Thank you so much, Eileen and Julian, UK
Our vacation on Horta, penthouse Carmo was very beautiful. We enjoyed the apartement and the very nice view over Horta, the harbour, the Sea and Pico and sometimes we saw Sao Jorge. We want to thank Zelda for everything. We have a very nice contact from the beginning until the end. Faial is very beautiful, we loved the island. Thanks :)
