About Maria Jorge Martins

We have been doing holidays in Azores since 1991, until one day in 2005, we definitively fall in love with Pico and decide to by a ruin to rebuild.

After traveling to all Azorean islands we choose Pico because it's pure nature, the mountain as a special impact, it's one of the best places in the world for whale watching and people are really nice.

Maria Jorge Martins purchased this house in 2005

Why Maria Jorge Martins chose Azores

Since the beginning the idea was to create a place that is simple but comfortable, where a visitor could feel like if it was at home.

The house is equipped has if we live there, and has lots of pieces that make part of our live, arriving there you can fell you are making part of a story, not only staying in a house.

It's very curious that several customers when we speak with them after their stay, comment that they felt like at home :)

The quietness from the house, the whale tradition from Calheta de Nesquim, the amazing natural pool - one of the best in the Azores - are some of the good reasons to stay with us.

What makes this house unique

The the amazing view from the terrace and the sympathy from Mrs Natalia and Mrs Noelia that are always available to help.

A magical place

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most beautifull and peacfull palces I've ever been.

The house could not be better suited to the small village and all the magic one can feel in the Azores islands.

A place which can only be remembered as a magical one!

So disappointed! Only 2 rooms, not 3. Deceitfull

  • 1 of 5

The house location was good, the village and the natural pool very nice.

*****BUT****** the house was not at all the one described. Only 2 rooms instead of 3 announced ! The third room behind the house was closed and, when we found the key, what a surprise ! A very bad surprise ! It seems to be abandoned for several years. All inside was so wet, moldy and dirty. There were old and used sheets on the bed.... it was awfull ! The ground floor front bedroom's shower was dirty, we had to wash it to be able to use it and the room was very wet. We met nobody during all the week ; only an old woman the first day who didn't speak english at all. We felt we were note expected and that the house was no more rent for a long time. What a disappointment for us ! All was perfect in the Azores except this house.*** Please, avoid it.*** There are plenty other nice places.

Quiet paradise, views to die for, serine swimming hole

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful. We arrived to a basket filled with fresh bread, cheese, wine, and jam. They were all delicious. The views were magnificent! The location was perfect for those looking to get away from it all. There's the best swimming hole right down the street about a 1 min drive. The swimming hole has bathrooms, a slide, and a bar. I have nothing negative to say about this place. I wish I could live there.

Ein Ort zur Entschleunigung

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus liegt in einem abgelegenem, jedoch sehr schönen Teil von Pico. Das Haus lebt von der tollen, überdachten Terrasse, mit einem grandiosen Blick auf das Meer, von dem man aus Wale und Delfine beobachten kann. Beachten sollte man, dass man bis Madalena ca. 1 Stunde unterwegs ist. Das Naturschwimmbecken ist unweit und toll, die Bar da Poca daneben sehr nett.

Einen Punkt Abzug gibt es von uns, da uE die Duschen durchaus renoviert werden dürften und auch die Ausstattung der Küche etwas dürftig ist. So gibt es keinen Backofen, keine Weingläser und keine großen Pfannen etc. Da wird es bei Vollbesetzing eng beim kochen.
