Charming place on a charming island

  • 5 of 5

Having spent a few days in O Palheiro I may only confirm that it is a perfect place to stay in when exploring Flores island. It's comfortable, well designed, located on the more convenient site of the island, and Neil and Carol are always helpful with plenty of local knowledge. Recommended for sure!

Your own paradise...

  • 5 of 5

We`ve stayed at this place for 4 days only but it`s enough to fall in love with it. In spite of weather surprises we get used to wake up with birds singing and enjoy breakfast in our private garden (thanks to Carol - it looked just amazing).

Cottage has everything for staying 2 persons and Neil and his wife were very friendly and helpful. I`ll be happy to come back to the same place again!

Sehr schön gelegenes kleines Haus im Garten...ruhig gelegen. Das HAus ist komplett und sehr liebevoll eingerichtet, es fehlt an nichts. Neil, der Vermieter war jederzeit ansprechbar für Fragen und Wünsche. Wir können das Haus nur empfehlen.

Auf jeden Fall werden wir wieder kommen...
