A typical winery on the island of Pico, where wine was produced, has, over time, been transformed into a cozy holiday home.
“Perfect all around. The house is the ideal place to arrive in the Azores and explore the island! Gabriel's father welcomed us warmly and showed us every corner of the house with great enthusiasm. Rarely has the hospitality in the Azores been as clear as here. On the first day after we arrived, we took our mount to the top of the mountain, had breakfast in the morning in the garden, and in the afternoon after our climb we ended the day in the hammock - in the background the surf - a dream. Thank you dear Gabriel, it was an honor for us as a backpacker to be your guests.”
Casa de Basalto is set in a green area overlooking the sea. It is a cozy and ideal place to enjoy nature and to be able to relax during the holidays.
“Carlos and his wife Manuela are very nice and hospitable people. They welcomed us warmly and showed us everything at the house on arrival which is important. They even provided us with little things to eat. The house is very clean and nicely decorated. In the kitchen there is everything you need (coffee maker, microwave, kettle, toaster etc.). There is even a washing machine and an iron. It is also practical that you can park in the yard in front of the house. The location of the house is great. It is very quiet, from the neighbors or the street gets nothing. In addition, the house has a beautiful view of the sea. The nearest large supermarket is located in the village of Lajes, just 10 minutes away by car. It was also great that it was always cool in the house, due to the stone walls. For people who need Wi-Fi on holiday, it should be said that this is not available in the house. For us that was not a disadvantage, is also nice to turn off on vacation. And otherwise there is still the mobile Internet ;-) Carlos was always available and answered quickly. The checkout was totally uncomplicated and easy. All in all, we had a great holiday on Pico and would recommend the accommodation of Carlos at any time without hesitation :-)”
Newly built traditional home with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, full kitchen (fridge, stove, microwave), dinning room, and living room. One side of the home has a view of the ocean, the other side looks up at the mountain. Home is a 10 min walk down to the Atlantic Ocean.
“I came with my girlfriend to Pico Island in September, we really enjoyed it. Tony's house is in the southern part of the island, we really recommend taking the regional roads up the island to see the sunset. I was very positively surprised by how attentive and communicative Tony is before and during the arrival. The house is nicely located and has all the amenities one would need. Would come again if I return to Pico.”
