Why Zelda Melo chose Azores

This is such a fantastic family vacation house, its got character in its stonework, its large enough for each family member of 4 - 11 persons to have their own private space all within a pleasant decor. This quality home not only is suited for a large family but also ideal for a couple who seeks a quiet place to stay at. The location is rural and natural near the natural pools and the only sandy beach on Pico Island, natural and environment in nature is what Big and Beautiful stands for.

Perfect house, excellent host

  • 5 of 5

Don't waste time staying anywhere else on Pico. Giomare is the best hostess in the universe, and her home is 100 feet from the beautiful cost with its unique natural swimming pools. This home is spacious, pristine, well laid out, comfortable, with all the amenities you need for an extended stay. It provides both bath towels and beach towels. We had 9 people in our group and the house (with all three levels) accommodated us perfectly. Seriously -- this house is a gem and the island is beautiful. We'll be back!

Fantastic location, great house, amazing hosts

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Sao Miguel and six days in Pico. I wish we had cut our vacation in S. Miguel shorter and spent more time at this place. The island is really amazing, the house is very comfortable. It is a short walk to the beach (note this is not a sand beach, but it is really spectacular). There are some nice restaurants nearby. There is a lot to do in Pico, but it is also very convenient to Faial and S. Jorge. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating. The woman who manages the rental is amazing. She is a flawless English speaker and gave us dozens of ideas of what to do. We really had a great time and would recommend this place for anyone looking for either an active or just plain relaxing visit.
