Erholung, Erlebnis und ein tolles Haus

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Ferienhaus ist sehr zu empfehlen. Es ist neu, hell, modern ausgestattet und bietet sehr viel Platz. Auf der Veranda nahmen wir jeden Morgen unser Frühstück ein und genossen den herrlichen Ausblick auf den Ozean und die gegenüberliegende Insel Sao Jorge. Die Umgebung war sehr gepflegt.

Unsere Vermieter boten einen exellenten Service. Der Transfer zum / vom Flughafen klappte problemlos und war sehr informativ. Das bestellte azorianische Essen für den ersten Abend war ein Hochgenuss.

Piedade ist ein sehr guter Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen und Ausflüge mit dem Auto zu entfernten Punkten der Insel. Sehr hilfreich waren dabei die Informationen der Vermieter.

Dieses Ferienhaus ist denjenigen zu empfehlen, die besonderen Wert auf eine helle, geräumige und ruhige Umgebung legen.

Wir sind mit Wehmut abgereist!

  • 5 of 5

Man hatte im Internet nicht zu viel versprochen! Hier stimmt wirklich alles, angefangen bei der herzlichen Begrüßung, bei dem liebevoll und komplett eingerichteten Haus, über die phantastische Lage hin zu der großartigen Natur. Die atemberaubende Aussicht lenkt fast zu oft beim Lesen ab, genauso wie der Griff zum stets bereit liegenden Fernglas – „sind es Wale oder sehr viele Delphine?...”

Pico ist ein wunderschönes Fleckchen Erde! Und mit so einer netten Gasgeberfamilie hatten wir ja nicht gerechnet und das das ganze drum herum nahezu Perfekt war.

Fazit: ohne Einschränkung zu empfehlen.

Wunderschönes Haus

  • 5 of 5

Nachdem unser Reisebüro den Mietwagen versaubeutelt hatte, bekamen wir von Oliver seinen privaten Wagen und anschließend konnten wir ihr eigenes kleines Mietcar mieten - Super hilfsbereite Menschen. Das Haus ist wunderschön, komplett ausgestattet, es fehlt an nichts, super Lage über dem Meer, innerhalb einer 1/2 bis 1 Std. erreicht man jedes Ziel auf der Insel.

Wer sich hier nicht wohlfühlt, sollte lieber zu hause bleiben. Für einen Pico Aufenthalt wärmstens zu empfehlen.

Come to the Sao Jorge's view!

  • 4 of 5

Wir verbrachten mit unserer kleinen Tocher Sept. 2007 eine knappe Woche in Oliver's neuestem Ferienhaus. Wir buchen oft Ferienhäuser, und ohne Zweifel zählt dieses neu gebaute Objekt mit seinem luftigen Stil und der überragenden Aussicht zu den attraktivsten Objekten.

Besonders hervorzuheben ist die hohe Verarbeitungsqualität des Objekts und die durchdachte Aufteilung. Das findet man auf den Azoren nicht überall!

Die Gastgeber wohnen in Sichtweite und stehen gern beratend oder für einen Schwatz zur Verfügung.

Wir möchten die Unterkunft besonders Familien mit Kind empfehlen die mal was anderes als Strandurlaub haben wollen, alles ebenerdig ohne Stufen und Kanten, die Anordnung der Schlafzimmer ist optimal, das Grundstück ist riesig, nirgends Verkehr, höchstens es steht plötzlich mal das Pferd oder die Kuh des Nachbarn auf der Wiese :-), diverse Haustiere, Kinderanschluss bei den Gastgebern möglich.

Einschränkend kann ich nur sagen... begrenzte Möglichkeiten zum Einkaufen und Essen gehen, Auto selbstverständlich unabdingbar. Begrenzte Bademöglichkeiten. Vielleicht

baut Oliver ja mal einen Pool :-)

Wir hatten drei Unterkünfte auf den Azoren und diese war qualitativ die Beste.

Mehr Infos auch nachzulesen im Reisebericht den ich hier nicht linken darf, google: azoren 2007 kind reisebericht
