Beautiful home near a lovely pool

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely perfect. It is pristine and comfortable and beautifully decorated. The hosts are very solicitous and even left the most wonderful welcome basket with bread, cheese and jam! In addition to the views of ocean and ancient vineyards, it is located just steps away from the nicest swimming area I have ever experienced, beautifully appointed and located among lava rocks.

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.

Sehr schönes gepflegtes und vor allem sauberes Haus. Lage super nahe zum Meer.

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben diesen Urlaub sehr genossen. Das Haus war super sauber. Einziges Manko, was uns dann aber nicht wirklich gestört hat, war, dass es innen keinen Tisch für 9 Leute gibt (wir waren zu neunt). Die Besitzerin bzw. ihre englisch sprechende Freundin waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit ohne aufdringlich zu sein. Wirklich empfehlenswert für Leute, die einen ruhigen entspannten Urlaub auf Pico machen möchten, wobei es auf Pico im Gegensatz zu Sao Miguel nirgends wirklich überlaufen ist.

Sehr empfehlenswert

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist wie beschrieben, sehr schön gelegen und wunderbar ausgestattet! Die Eigentümer kümmern sich ganz toll um Ihre Gäste, besser kann es nicht sein!

Die Ansprechpartenerin für das Haus ist jederzeit erreichbar und kümmert sich sofort um Alles!

Wir können uns nur noch für den angenehmen Aufenthalt im Haus bedanken und werden es auch gern weiterempfehlen.
