Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was truly a piece of paradise. We had such a relaxing time at Adega Velha - enjoying quiet days of outdoor peacefulness, spending lots of time in the outdoor spaces of the house. Fatima and Helio were such gracious hosts, and provided for everything you could think of! Everything!!

The house is nicely situated, walking distance from the swimming hole and a nice little snack bar. On a trail route up the hills, a good hike. There are also fantastic restaurants just short driving distances away. You just "feel" like you're so far removed from everything but all the modern conveniences are close by.

Tranquilo, acolhedor num local deslumbrante.

  • 5 of 5

Local tranquilo, acolhedor com uma vista magnifica. Majestosamente recebidos pelos seus proprietários, recomendo a todas as pessoas que apreciem locais rústicos, limpos, com conforto q.b. e todas as comodidades necessárias para umas férias bem passadas.Nas proximidades é fácil encontrar onde comer (restaurantes/bares), mini mercado, padaria, piscinas naturais no mar, entre outras. Naturalmente se um dia voltar ao Pico, saberei onde ficar...

A beautiful place on earth | Ein wunderschoener Ort

  • 5 of 5

Fatima and Helio are incredibly hospitable and real life lovers :-) It's one of the most beautiful holiday houses in which we ever stayed. From the balcony we saw whales and dolphins and listened to the funny birds that come during nightfall from the sea to Pico. The house is located at a quiet place, a place to relax. Otherwise, there are beautiful hiking trails near by. The hike to the top of Pico, the highest mountain of Portugal will be rewarded with an overwhelming view. If you plan to do whale watching, Serge in Lajes (http://www.espacotalassa.com/) is great and something special in comparison to other companies. We learned a lot about sea life in advance, before we went to the sea. And there we saw a blue whale, incredible (season in May).

Fatima und Helio sind unheimlich gastfreundlich und echte Lebensgeniesser :-) Es ist eines der schoensten Ferienhaeuser in denen wir jemals waren. Vom Balkon konnten wir Wale und Delfine sehen und die lustigen Voegel hoeren die zum Einbruch der Dunkelheit vom Meer das Land aufsuchen. Das Ferienhaus liegt an einem ruhigen Ort an dem man die Selle baumeln lassen kann. Ansonsten gibt es in der Umgebung schoene Wanderwege. Der Aufstieg zum Pico, dem hoechsten Berg von Portugal wird belohnt mit einer ueberwaeltigenden Aussicht. Unbedingt das Whale Watching bei Serge in Lajes (http://www.espacotalassa.com/) buchen wenn ihr das vorhabt. Vorab haben wir viel gelernt ueber das marine Leben, bevor es dann aufs Meer ging und wir dort einen Blauwal gesehen haben (Saison im Mai). Der absolute Oberhammer!

Heel mooi huisje, prachtig zeezicht

  • 4 of 5

Heel mooi, klein huisje dat toch alles heeft wat je maar nodig kan hebben. Het zicht op de oceaan is fenomenaal, je kan je activiteiten op pico perfect combineren met een rustig momentje op het terras, al dan niet met de barbecue aan.

Het huisje was heel proper, de eigenaar is de meest gastvrije persoon die ik ooit ontmoet heb, bij aankomst stond er een verrassingspakket (zelfgemaakte wijn en confituur) en ook bij vertrek was er een kleinigheidje. Ik zou deze woning zéker aanraden.

Ik kan maar 1 ding aanmerken op het huisje zelf en dat is de matras van het bed, deze was niet zo goed voor mijn rug, maar ik ben niet naar de Azoren gegaan om te slapen.

A gem!

  • 5 of 5

Adega Velha was a perfect place for the two of us while we explored Pico. Although it is a very small house, it was impeccably clean, comfortable and beautifully appointed. Everything you could imagine needing was there, tidily tucked in to its own appointed space. The view from the house is exceptional, and we found the quiet location so charming and restful. Fatima and her husband were extremely gracious, even leaving us a gift basket upon our arrival. I highly recommend this guest house and will gladly stay there again if back in Pico.

Great place in beautiful village of Pico Island!

  • 5 of 5

We spend wonderful time in beautiful village of Calheta de Nesquim, one of the most charming places on the Pico Island. The house was very comfortable, located close to the center of the village and charming little beach "piscina natural" - Poça das Mujas. The owners are very hospitable and helpful. This is the perfect place to rest and to explore the island. Highly reccommended!
