Space 807 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

The beautiful house is located at the foot of the Pico, Portugal's highest mountain (2351m) with direct sea views of the Atlantic Ocean. Because of this sea view, you can watch whales and dolphins from the house during their hike. This country house was built around 1900 and completely restored in 1998, refurbished and modernized. Then it was grown and maintained again and again (last 2017)

You can either have breakfast outside in front of the house or you can walk a few steps to find yourself in the patio. From there you have a direct view of the Atlantic and the unspoiled nature. It is also wonderful to sit on the terrace in the evening, to look at the Atlantic Ocean and prepare your barbecue on the large brick barbecue, while watching whales and dolphins. Pure nature. The large landscaped lava garden (about 800m2) with palm trees, hibiscus, jasmine, bananas, oranges, lemons, limes, manderinen, cacti, succulents, azaleas, hydrangeas, etc. is a wonderful place to relax (small pond made of brick lava stones with 2 goldfish too available)

The place is suitable as a starting point for island tours to see the wild hydrangeas, the clean villages, the pastures with the happy cows, the blue or green crater lakes. The temperate climate, fresh clean air without exhaust ensure recovery of body and soul. The beautiful nature, is a balm for the eyes and there are no toxic or dangerous animals, only nice helpful people.

You enter the apartment Margit above the porch and are located in the entrance area with a small seating area. To the right of them is the comfortably furnished kitchen with ceramic hob, extractor fan, refrigerator and about 3.50 m fitted kitchen in light wood on the longest wall. Straight ahead from the entrance you will see 3 large windows (sea view) on the left, which lead wonderful sunlight through the corridor. On the right is the bedroom with double bed (2x2m) and superstructure in light wood. Back in the hallway, they go in the cozy living area.

There is also the extraordinary hearth (fireplace) .The living area is cozy, with a cozy couch + new Sleep and Chillmatraze, and a growing wall of mahogany wood + glass cabinets equipped. Directly after the living area they are in the comfortable bathroom, with a large walk-in shower and washing machine. Law is the terrace bedroom with double. Bed and sofa bed.(Here you can see directly from the bed on the cistern sea)

Super séjour sur Pico !

  • 4 of 5

Maison confortable pour 2 adultes et 2 enfants. Jardin exotique très agréable et environnement calme.

La maison est très bien située pour visiter l'île.

Vue sur l'océan de la terrasse d'où nous pouvons observer les baleines!

Très belle piscine naturelle accessible à pied en 5-10 minutes.

Mention spécial pour les voisins, Véronique et Arthur qui nous ont chaleureusement accueilli, conseillé dans nos visites et pris soin de nous tout au long du séjour!

wunderschöne Azoren

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus hat zwei Wohnungen. Unser Aufenthalt war die obere Wohnung MARGIT. Das Appartement bot uns alles, was wir für die Zeit brauchten. Der dazugehörige Garten ist wunderschön angelegt und man hat einen Blick auf das Meer, hier kann man die Abende draußen genießen. Es ist sehr ruhig und abends hörten wir sogar den Cagarro (Sturmtauchervogel).

Es iat ratsam ein Auto zu mieten, um die herrliche Natur der Insel zu erkunden.

The small village of Terra do Pao is located on the sunny south coast of Pico island and is an ideal starting point for beautiful island tours. Whale watching and swimming with dolphins can be booked in neighboring Lajos do Pico (about 10 km), bicycle rental. On foot in just 5 minutes to the vineyards in the Zona the Agedas (World Heritage) .In 10 minutes to the small corner shop (the nice owner is but here Fernanda, here you get everything you need) .It is also a meeting place for a chat and sometimes for a nightcap. Also only 5 minutes to the beautiful natural swimming pool. Here is good for fishing.
