Guestbook comments from the manager

good and clean accommodation from Annemiek Coenen 14/Sep/2014

This accommodation was good with a beautiful view over Horta.

You need a car, Because it is on top of Horta, but that’s useful why you have a beautiful view.

Magnificent view and lots of space

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place to stay in Horta. Though, you need a car!

It's on top of the hill with a magnificent view over Horta and Pico... the sunrise over Pico is just amazing....

Could not point anything bad about this....

Moderne Wohnung mit herrlichem Ausblick

  • 5 of 5

Die Hausverwalterin Zelda empfahl uns per WhatsApp bereits mehrere Wochen vor unserer Ankunft lohnenswerte Ausflugsziele nicht nur auf Faial, sondern auch auf Pico. Sie empfing uns herzlich bereits vor der offiziellen Check-In-Zeit, zeigte und erklärte uns die gesamte Ferienwohnung. Zelda nahm sich auch noch einmal vor Ort die Zeit, uns sämtliche Ausflugsziele sowie Restaurants an Hand der Inselkarte zu erklären.

Die Wohnung ist modern eingerichtet, recht ruhig in einem der Mehrfamilienhäuser entlang der Rua Nova do Carmo gelegen (Mietwagen ist von Vorteil, Parkplätze befinden sich vor dem Haus), mit grandiosem Ausblick auf den Pico. Insbesondere empfanden wir die Ausstattung mit Waschmaschine und Wäschetrockner sehr praktisch. Vielen Dank an die Hausverwalterin Zelda, dass sie auch folgende Kleinigkeiten in ausreichender Menge bereitgestellt hat: Toilettenpapier, Duschgel, Handwaschseife, Geschirrspültabs und Waschmittel.

Die vielen Einbahnstraßen in Horta sind eine Herausforderung für jeden Mietwagenfahrer, mit einem guten Navigationssystem aber kein Problem. Wir nutzten sehr erfolgreich die kostenlose NavigationsApp HereWeGo mit aktuellen und kostenlosen Karten für Portugal und die Azoren auf unserem Smartphone. Nach zwei Tagen hatte die ganze Familie ihren Spaß, wenn wir auch mal ohne Navi fuhren.

Wir verbrachten 7 Nächte in dieser Ferienwohnung und hätten uns auch noch länger sehr wohl gefühlt.
