About the property

Stone house in Pico's north coast

Stone house built from an old winery in the world heritage protected landscape of Pico island's vineyards. You will walk on the pristine landscape, climb the highest mountain of the Portuguese territory, or snorkel in the Atlantic ocean.

Prainha is a small village in the remote Azores' island of Pico. Away from the crowds, you can relax and enjoy what nature has to offer still. Ideal for a couple or 2 friends traveling together.

A lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped house for two. We loved to sit at the top of the steps admiring the views of the sea. Nice quiet spot for relaxing. Car essential, I would say. Prainha has an ocean swimming pool, a bar and a surprisingly well equipped shop about 2 km from the house.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying at our house. We are very happy when we can share this sample of what the Azores have the best - the silence, the nature, the landscape, the sea.

consigliato

  • 5 of 5

L'alloggio è in una bella posizione, si sente l'oceano poco distante, con un bel giardino e completo di tutti i confort. Accogliente e riservato, arredato con gusto che non tradisce l'origine della struttura, un'adega.

Petite maison typique dans un cadre charmant

  • 4 of 5

Cette petite maison typique est entourée de jardins et dispose d'une belle vue sur la mer. L'équipement est simple mais complet. Nous avons été accueillis généreusement par Neide qui nous a offert fromage et autres victuailles. Le point faible serait la literie, un peu trop dure pour nous.

Wunderschöne Adega mit gutem Service

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus ist wirklich super niedlich. Alles ist sehr klein und gemütlich. Neide, die Housekeeperin ist super engagiert und erfüllt einem vermutlich jeden Wunsch. Es war besonders aufgrund unserer Ankunftszeit super, dass es etwas Obst, Milch, Käse, Marmelade und Brot gab. Es gibt trotzdem keine fünf Sterne, da es etwas sauberer hätte sein können (Zahnputzbecher nicht gespült, Spinnweben,...) und die Matratzen sehr hart und für uns daher unbequem waren.
