Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was truly a piece of paradise. We had such a relaxing time at Adega Velha - enjoying quiet days of outdoor peacefulness, spending lots of time in the outdoor spaces of the house. Fatima and Helio were such gracious hosts, and provided for everything you could think of! Everything!!

The house is nicely situated, walking distance from the swimming hole and a nice little snack bar. On a trail route up the hills, a good hike. There are also fantastic restaurants just short driving distances away. You just "feel" like you're so far removed from everything but all the modern conveniences are close by.

Eine sehr schöne Unterkunft auf einer wunderschönen Insel

  • 5 of 5

Zu dieser Unterkunft passt die Beschreibung "Klein aber oho".

Wir waren Ende Januar für knapp eine Woche auf Pico und haben uns spontan in die Insel verliebt.

Dieses Haus liegt im Südosten der Insel in einer (im Winter?!) sehr ruhigen Wohngegend. Die Küche ist mit allen Gerätschaften ausgestattet,die man benötigt,uns hat nichts gefehlt. Es gab auch ein Starterpaket (Brot,Butter,Milch,selbstgemachte Marmelade (sehr lecker!) und ebenfalls Wein aus eigener Herstellung).

Es gibt auch eine Waschmachine und auf der Terasse einen Grill.

Wir haben die Zeit auf der Insel und auch in dem Haus sehr genossen.

Fàtima ist/war beim Check-in sehr zuvorkommend und freundlich.

Wir können dieses Haus (und die Insel sowieso) uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

Wonderful Christmas and New Years Eve in Adega Velha

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in Adega Velha over Christmas and New Years Eve. We immediately felt home in the cozy small house. Even though Fatima was not at home over Christmas, she always took care about us and received immediate response if we needed anything. The people in the town are very friendly, the neighbor welcomed us and gave us fresh oranges as a gift. The view from the balcony onto the sea is really beautiful, on New Year we had a barbecue and enjoyed sitting there. We really recommend staying here!

Tranquilo, acolhedor num local deslumbrante.

  • 5 of 5

Local tranquilo, acolhedor com uma vista magnifica. Majestosamente recebidos pelos seus proprietários, recomendo a todas as pessoas que apreciem locais rústicos, limpos, com conforto q.b. e todas as comodidades necessárias para umas férias bem passadas.Nas proximidades é fácil encontrar onde comer (restaurantes/bares), mini mercado, padaria, piscinas naturais no mar, entre outras. Naturalmente se um dia voltar ao Pico, saberei onde ficar...

A beautiful place on earth | Ein wunderschoener Ort

  • 5 of 5

Fatima and Helio are incredibly hospitable and real life lovers :-) It's one of the most beautiful holiday houses in which we ever stayed. From the balcony we saw whales and dolphins and listened to the funny birds that come during nightfall from the sea to Pico. The house is located at a quiet place, a place to relax. Otherwise, there are beautiful hiking trails near by. The hike to the top of Pico, the highest mountain of Portugal will be rewarded with an overwhelming view. If you plan to do whale watching, Serge in Lajes ( is great and something special in comparison to other companies. We learned a lot about sea life in advance, before we went to the sea. And there we saw a blue whale, incredible (season in May).

Fatima und Helio sind unheimlich gastfreundlich und echte Lebensgeniesser :-) Es ist eines der schoensten Ferienhaeuser in denen wir jemals waren. Vom Balkon konnten wir Wale und Delfine sehen und die lustigen Voegel hoeren die zum Einbruch der Dunkelheit vom Meer das Land aufsuchen. Das Ferienhaus liegt an einem ruhigen Ort an dem man die Selle baumeln lassen kann. Ansonsten gibt es in der Umgebung schoene Wanderwege. Der Aufstieg zum Pico, dem hoechsten Berg von Portugal wird belohnt mit einer ueberwaeltigenden Aussicht. Unbedingt das Whale Watching bei Serge in Lajes ( buchen wenn ihr das vorhabt. Vorab haben wir viel gelernt ueber das marine Leben, bevor es dann aufs Meer ging und wir dort einen Blauwal gesehen haben (Saison im Mai). Der absolute Oberhammer!
