Pleasant and relaxing stay at Calhete de Nesquim

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful and very spacious house with the family (4) during 5 days . The owner Adelina was the most friendly host, and made us feel welcome immediately. She is very dedicated to provide her visitors the best experience, she told us everything about how she built up her B&B business. All that the garden produced was ours, and we grilled excellent fish her friend brought to us on the BBQ. Nice dinners outside, and... we spotted dolphins passing from the patio from time to time.

Not to be missed is the natural pool at a 5-10 minute walk from the property, it was the first and best we tried in the Azores!

5-10 minutes drive to a good fish restaurant .

Adelina speaks fluent French and English.

Fantastic experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 9 days of hospitality from heaven. It all started with the wonderful personality of Adelina, she is an amazing host that will always be helpful, and try to make the best for you. The house was clean, the kitchen is fully equipped, and nothing is missing, include towels, sheets, soaps, candles and even light tosh in case the electricity in down in the island area. Calheta is a very friendly and family like village, quiet, and the only mini market in the village is just down the Casa! This house is worth every euro, and try the angeliqua, wine and jams that Adelina is making, it is delicious :)

Obrigada Adelina! Tolles Ferienhaus mit Meerblick

  • 5 of 5

Aufgrund unserer sehr guten Erfahrungen im letzten Jahr haben wir dieses Jahr nochmals 11 Tage im Casa do Avo Faidoca verbracht.

Das Haus liegt in einem kleinen ruhigen Dorf an der Südostküste von Pico, abseits der Touristenströme. Von hier aus kann man herrliche Wanderungen unternehmen. Mit der Poca das Mujas steht ganz in der Nähe auch eine wunderschöne Felsbadebucht zur Verfügung. Gegenüber können in einem kleinen Laden die notwendigsten Lebensmittel eingekauft werden. Ein gutes Fischrestaurant ist in Mahenha (ca 10 Minuten mit dem Auto) erreichbar.

Wir hatten die größere Wohnung gemietet. Sie verfügt über eine große, vollständig ausgestattete Küche, 2 Schlafzimmer mit Doppelbetten, 1 Schlafzimmer mit Einzelbett und weitere Schlafgelegenheiten (zwei Einzelbetten) auf einer großen Empore über der Küche, 2 Badezimmer mit Dusche und WC und 1 Wohnzimmer mit TV etc. Waschmaschine sowie verschiedene Möglichkeiten zum Trocknen der Wäsche (auch überdachter Bereich) sind vorhanden. Im Außenbereich gibt es 2 Terrassen mit direktem Meerblick, einen gemauerten Grillplatz, einen Gasgrill sowie eine Außenspüle. Die Zimmer waren sehr sauber. Zum Anwesen gehört ein großer Garten, aus dem sich die Feriengäste mit Tomaten, Kartoffeln, etc. bedienen können.

Die Besitzerin versorgte uns darüber hinaus mit Feigen, Trauben, Bananen aus eigenem Anbau, selbstgemachter Marmelade, Wein und nützlichen Informationen. Adelina ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit und hat immer ein offenes Ohr für die Anliegen der Feriengäste.

Wir haben uns rundum wohlgefühlt und werden, falls es uns nochmals nach Pico verschlägt, wieder die Casa do Avo Faidoca mieten.

Due to our excellent experience last year we have spent another 11 days at Casa do Avo Faidoca.

The house is located in a small quiet village on the southeast coast of Pico. From here you can make nice walking tours. The Poca das Mujas – a beautiful natural pool - is very close. Approximately 30m from the house there is a small shop, where the most necessary food can be purchased. A good fish restaurant is available in Manhenha (about 10 minutes with the car). The rooms were very clean. There are 2 terraces with sea view, a brick barbecue, a gas grill and an outdoor sink. From the large garden the vacationers can pick tomatoes, potatoes, etc.. Adelina provided us with homegrown fruits, homemade jam, wine and useful information. She is very nice and helpful and always has an open ear for the concerns of vacationers. We felt very comfo

Uma casa muito bem localizada, espaçosa (2 quartos duplos, 1 individual e 1 c/ 2 camas, cozinha enorme, sala e 2 casas de banho) e impecavelmente limpa. Jardim e horta com ervas aromáticas. Vista de mar muito bonita numa aldeia encantadora. A D. Adelina é uma anfitriã excepcionalmente simpática, apaixonada por animais e pela Ilha do Pico. Adorámos tudo!

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour chez Adelina. La maison est impeccable, la vue magnifique et le village très agréable. Adélina a été très accueillante et nous a fait profiter des fruits de son jardin.

A refaire!
