Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

2 bed, 1 bath, sleeps 6

“Casa do Paim” (Paim’s House) is a touristic business derived from a one family house built by the current owner’s grandfather, Mr. Paim. As accustomed of the past, houses had a wooden oven inside, a pigsty, a water tank and a “retrete” (old name given to a toilet built outside the house). The House was duly rebuilt by associating traditional architecture to harmonious comfort. The wooden oven, the water tank and the toilet were kept in order to allow visitors to relive the reality of our ancestors. The pigsty was turned into a terrace, but we kept the “chiqueiro”, place where the pig slept.

In this small House, silence is absolute, only interrupted by some birds, like the Shearwater (also known as “yellow-beak-sparrow”). “Casa do Paim” is the ideal place to enjoy dreamy and comfortable holidays in contact with Nature, with view to Pico’s mountain and the neighboring island of São Jorge.

“Casa do Paim” is a Rural Tourism settlement located in the Northern side of Pico island with a panoramic view to the highest mountain in Portugal and facing the island of São Jorge.

Luis is gracious and resourceful! Upon arrival he met us at the ferry and drove us to the house. He made himself available thoughout our stay always ready with great restaurant and activity advice. The house is well located, clean and spacious with a lovely ocean view. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything one should need. Strong wifi, & clothes washer too!

A wild ride!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time at Casa Do Paim. The house was well equipped and the owners were responsive to our needs. The wind was wicked a couple of days and blew stuff around outside and whipped through the chimney. There is only one neighbor in the front and you can see the road but it's not busy, and a beautiful view to Sao Jorge. In the back, there is farmland and abandoned houses. At the time we were there, a dog in the back barked incessantly, even in the middle of the night. I brought it up to the owner so hopefully it gets resolved. Overall, a great place to stay as it is close to everything.

Hilfsbereite Gastgeber

  • 4 of 5

Ana und Luis waren sehr hilfsbereite Gastgeber und haben uns während unseres Aufenthaltes bei vielen Dingen sehr geholfen (Mietwagen, Internetzugang).

Wir haben in einem Haus von azorischen Emmigranten gewohnt, für die Ana und Luis die Vermietung übernommen haben. Es war groß und gut ausgestattet. Terrasse mit Blick auf Sao Jorge, aber auch auf die Strasse. Da es wohl nicht ständig vermietet wird, war es teilweise etwas muffig, was auf den Inseln wegen der hohen Luftfeuchtigkeit aber häufiger vorkommt.

Excelente estadia!

  • 5 of 5

Fomos muito bem recebidos e tudo estava impecável. Recomendo vivamente a qualquer família que queira passar umas boas férias no Pico. Boa vista sobre o mar e muito sossegado. Apenas uma sugestão : substituir a carcaça de trigo pelo vosso excelente pão de milho!

até breve Margarida

Très jolie maison rurale, avec de l'espace, très bien équipée, avec beaucoup de charme et bien placée car vue sur la mer, le volcan et la jolie campagne.

Acceuil vraiment sympathique, Bida et sa femme Ana nous ont offert des produits locaux et nous ont invité à la fête du village.
