About Maria Jorge Martins

We have been doing holidays in Azores since 1991, until one day in 2005, we definitively fall in love with Pico and decide to by a ruin to rebuild.

After traveling to all Azorean islands we choose Pico because it's pure nature, the mountain as a special impact, it's one of the best places in the world for whale watching and people are really nice.

Maria Jorge Martins purchased this house in 2005

Why Maria Jorge Martins chose Portugal

Since the beginning the idea was to create a place that is simple but comfortable, where a visitor could feel like if it was at home.

The house is equipped has if we live there, and has lots of pieces that make part of our live, arriving there you can fell you are making part of a story, not only staying in a house.

It's very curious that several customers when we speak with them after their stay, comment that they felt like at home :)

The quietness from the house, the whale tradition from Calheta de Nesquim, the amazing natural pool - one of the best in the Azores - are some of the good reasons to stay with us.

What makes this house unique

The the amazing view from the terrace and the sympathy from Mrs Natalia and Mrs Noelia that are always available to help.

The island is quite, low traffic, unique landscape and friendly pleople. Adega da Figueira was the perfect refuge, warm and breathtaking view. I was dazzled with Pico peak, I loved it. In a short time I was able to gain the strength and energy to go back to my stressfull life. Thank you so much for the beautiful place. I'll come back for sure to explore more places .

We would come back for sure!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice little holiday adega with a magic view over the sea! The terrace is superb as it is covered. So wind and even rain will not disturb the view on the magic sea. We saw dolphins every day from the house (different species, big and small groups). Sometimes very near! We even managed to see the blows of baleen whales with our binoculars! Fantastic. It is a vey calm place, nice garden and the kitchen is well equipped. Very friendly household lady that cares for all your little problems. If you want to calm down, relax and enjoy a splendid view over the endless ocean this is your place to be! We did some nice walkings nearby, some great dolphin and whale watching tours (with lots of baleen whlaes and dolphins) and had fish for dinner every second day. Our small baby (1.5year) enjoyed the stay as much as we did!

Lovely house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for something special, rent a house Adega Figuera in Calheta de Nesquim. You will find your "home" for your holiday on the island of Pico. At the moment you become inhabitants of this unique island. Thanks to its location the property offers stunning ocean views. Breakfast on the terrace and view of the ocean filling the fishing boats, jumping dolphins has become a regular ritual each new day I spent in this house. Similarly, I enjoyed every evening to the voices of the ocean as the waves encounter lava. I sat on the terrace into the late evening hours and endured incredible luck. My companions in the evening were "Cagarros", talking birds ...

I am really very happy that I chose for my holiday house Adega Figuera, magical place full of peace and beauty and I highly recommend it to all who seek peace and quiet.

Dear Maria & Fernando, thank you very much for the warm welcome and thank you both that I could at least several days to become a part of your beautiful home. I wish you all the best. Next spring I'll be back to your house, where again I live through my new beautiful holiday.

With love

Irena

Best place ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most beautiful places we've ever been!

The great view over the ocean from the breakfast table... watching Dolphins from the house.. everything very clean and tasteful decorated. It really felt like home!

A place were you will find rest and where you can enjoy all beauty of nature!

The temperature was great during our stay and we could cool down in the natural pool close by.

This is for sure a place we will come back!
