Located in the lovely, peaceful, patrimonial area of Baia do Canto our adega is ideal for relaxing and enjoying the sounds of the ocean, the birds and nature in all her glory! As you look across the channel to the beautiful Sao Jorge you may even see dolphins and the occasional whale spouting. Enjoy your coffee or meal on the balcony or the veranda and watch the local tuna or lobster boats as they go about their age old fishing tradition. You can even buy a fish in the village if you meet the incoming boat and bring it back to grill at the outdoor furno/grilling area in the lower courtyard. Our adega was restored using traditional materials and style and your comfort is assured with the many amenities provided. We are artists and the house has many pieces of our work including the owner/artist's use of drift wood and old wine barrels in some of the furniture and furnishings and other touches found through out the adega. There is swimming, diving, fishing, hiking, bakeries and restaurants with some within walking distance if you prefer. We have an organic vegetable garden and fig trees available for your use when in season. If you prefer one bed we will put the twin beds together making a king size for your comfort. There is also a veranda off the bedroom where a cozy and romantic evening meal while listening to the waves reminds you that Pico truly is paradise!

The owners, Nancy and Mark, knew at first sight what a very special place this old wine adega with her small vineyard was perched with a birds eye view of the bay and the vineyards below.
Owner purchased this House in 2005
Why Owner chose Municipality of São Roque do Pico
This area of Santo Amaro, known as Canto is a unique spot where the traditional adegas were built and used for the wine harvest.
What makes this House unique
We loved that this traditional and lovingly restored stone "wine cellar" has amazing views of the ocean and the island of Sao Jorge across the channel. Another delightful aspect of it is the vineyards and lush fields all around. One thing is that it's very quiet with no barking dogs and early morning roosters crowing. The sounds of the ocean and the Cory Shearwaters is like a lullaby when it's time to sleep! In the morning while sitting on the balcony with coffee you may see dolphins and the occasional whale spout as well as the hawks from which the Azores were given their name.

Lovely cottage surrounded by natural beauty
My husband and I spent a week in this lovely cottage/adega by the sea. Enchanting describes it well. In addition to having all the amenities you would need for a very comfortable stay, full kitchen, etc., it is decorated with many of the artist owner's pieces of their own work which adds a special touch. The location is absolutely beautiful. From the back of the cottage your view is of a stunning cliff and from the front balcony the view is of the ocean. One of our favorite things to do each morning was to have our breakfast on the balcony while staring out at the sea before going on our daily walk. We also very much enjoyed being allowed to help ourselves to the fresh tomatoes and kale growing in the cottage garden. I could go on. Suffice it to say, the amenities were very good; very clean accommodations; and very friendly and helpful hosts. We will be back in the future, but for a longer period of time. Highly recommend.
Thank you so much for your kind review. We look forward to your return and love to share our home with guests like you and your husband.
Great Week & The Perfect View
The property absolutely lived up to the description. I would definitely recommend this trip and location to anyone. The property was clean and well kept. The owner did a really nice job of making sure we had everything we needed. Thanks for a memorable trip!
Thank you. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope to welcome you back in the future!
WARNING!!! Staying at this property is PARADISE!!
I can't say enough about this vacation rental. The owner was very efficient and made us feel like we were a part of her family. The location was ideal and afforded us the privacy we were looking for along with the picture perfect scenery we were hoping for.
The home is well maintained and has so many artistic, one-of-a-kind features that give it a unique, quaint atmosphere. It was clean and well kept with everything we needed for a comfortable stay.
I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to spend a little time in their own secluded island retreat.
Thank you for choosing Adega Baia do Canto! It was delightful to welcome you to our little piece of PARADISE! We hope to see you again!
Amazing View, Peaceful and Quiet, Clean, Cozy
The property is beautiful. It sits near the end of a road, with spectacular views of the island of Sao Jorge. It is clean, peaceful - no pet noises or roosters, comfortable and very cozy. The host couldn't be more kind.
The artisty touches in the house are really cool and the woodwork in the kitchen is really neat.
I have been visiting every year for about 3 years now... one of my favorite places on Pico Island.
It was a pleasure to have you stay in Adega Baia do Canto for your 3rd time. We hope to see you again for visits in the future and look forward to making Adega Baia do Canto your home away from home!
such a lovely place
Dear Nancy and Helena,
thank you so much for your warmly care before, during and after the stay in this beautiful house.
We talk every day about the time on it and a comeback.
The house is such an special place with an wonderful karma which no picture can discribe.
So thank you so much. We hope we will come back.
Heel mooi ingericht huis.
We werden ontvangen met heerlijk eten en drinken.
Het is er erg gezellig en ook heel schoon.
Het uitzicht is op de zee en het is er erg rustig. Het enige minpunt zijn de krakende bedden. Verder perfect. Het hele eiland is goed te berijden vanaf het huis.
Nog bedankt voor de mooie tijd.
Thank you Jolanda for your kind words. We were delighted to have you as guests at Adega Baia do Canto. Helena remarked on how clean that you left the house and how you recycled which we appreciate. We will work on making our beds less creaky! Kind regards, Nancy
