Very cosy little cottage with spectacular views, it’s was very quiet and peaceful, comfortable .

  • 4 of 5

Cosy little palace for a couple, with easy access to surrounding areas,

Fatima and Helio Are amazing hosts, they gave us a warm welcome and made us feel at home. The welcoming basket with local produce and wine was much appreciated. They were both helpful in guiding us and provide informations about the island. A car is recommended to get around and the food at the restaurants is excellent but Pico wines are really the best.

I would recommend to use google maps to locate the restaurants as it can be challenging on your first drive. The local bakery provides excellent bread. The cottage has everything one needs including good internet and cable television. We had a quiet, restful vacation which was very enjoyable.

Thank you to Fatima and Helio and we might be back for a future visit

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.

Eine sehr schöne Unterkunft auf einer wunderschönen Insel

  • 5 of 5

Zu dieser Unterkunft passt die Beschreibung "Klein aber oho".

Wir waren Ende Januar für knapp eine Woche auf Pico und haben uns spontan in die Insel verliebt.

Dieses Haus liegt im Südosten der Insel in einer (im Winter?!) sehr ruhigen Wohngegend. Die Küche ist mit allen Gerätschaften ausgestattet,die man benötigt,uns hat nichts gefehlt. Es gab auch ein Starterpaket (Brot,Butter,Milch,selbstgemachte Marmelade (sehr lecker!) und ebenfalls Wein aus eigener Herstellung).

Es gibt auch eine Waschmachine und auf der Terasse einen Grill.

Wir haben die Zeit auf der Insel und auch in dem Haus sehr genossen.

Fàtima ist/war beim Check-in sehr zuvorkommend und freundlich.

Wir können dieses Haus (und die Insel sowieso) uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

Wonderful Christmas and New Years Eve in Adega Velha

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in Adega Velha over Christmas and New Years Eve. We immediately felt home in the cozy small house. Even though Fatima was not at home over Christmas, she always took care about us and received immediate response if we needed anything. The people in the town are very friendly, the neighbor welcomed us and gave us fresh oranges as a gift. The view from the balcony onto the sea is really beautiful, on New Year we had a barbecue and enjoyed sitting there. We really recommend staying here!
