Rural apartment with stunning views in quiet location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to the apartment. We were made very welcome by our host family who live in the same building but with a separate entrance. There was a fabulous view of Sao Jorge from the courtyard, and we occasionally saw whales spout in the distance.

A car is essential. It is at the other end of the island from the airport. There is a small shop and cafes in the village, but only one restaurant 10 minutes drive away, otherwise you would have to go to the next town. There is a nice coastal walk nearby.

The kitchen had enough equipment for the two of us to cook simple meals for ourselves.

Thanks to the Dietters for a nice relaxing stay

Bellissima sistemazione con fantastico panorama

  • 5 of 5

Bella tenuta con diversi cottage nel verde. Molto spaziosi. Fantastico panorama. Un po' lontano dal supermercato, dal bus e dal mare. Veicolo consigliato. Padrona di casa molto disponibile , ci ha accompagnato a fare la spesa appena arrivati ed abbiamo trovato uova fresche e verdura dell'orto. Unica pecca: i sacchi piumini nel letto non molto adatti al clima di agosto ;)

Wahnsinnsausblick

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im August 2007 auf den Azoren und davon 1 Woche auf Pico. Das Appartement ist groß, sauber und geräumig, der Ausblick von der Terrasse einfach sensationell. Die Besitzer sind freundlich und sehr hilfsbereit. Ein Auto ist dringend zu empfehlen.

Die Bademöglichkeiten sind begrenzt (Naturschwimmbecken, keine Strände), aber die Natur und die Wandermöglichkeiten (leider fast nur One-Way) entschädigen. Die Straßen im Hochland wären perfekt zum Radfahren, haben allerdings keinen einzigen Fahrradfahrer gesehen.

Appartment Boa Vista 2007

  • 5 of 5

Das Appartartment war wie im Online-Inserat beschrieben ausgestattet sowie sehr schön und gepflegt. Die Aussicht von der Terasse war wunderschön und die Vermieter waren hilfsbereit und haben uns viele Tipps rund um unseren Aufenthalt gegeben ohne dabei aufdringlich zu sein. Allerdings sind Freizeitmöglichkeiten, Restaurants, Einkaufsläden usw. ohne Auto nur eingeschränkt zu erreichen. Wir hatten aber auf jeden Fall eine wunderschöne Zeit und können das Appartment jedem nur empfehlen.
