Stay in a stone house, recovered from the original ruins, in the amazing Pico Island, with a 180º view of the ocean and facing Island of S. Jorge. The house which is full of modern comforts and amenities and a heated outdoor pool will make your holiday bliss!! The owner lives in one of the houses, so you may meet her and have a chance to just say hello or ask about the island, but the whole property, gardens, decks, pool, barbeque, etc. are for guests’ use only.
“This is an amazing place to stay on Pico. I couldn’t get out of the pool ever. Same three times a day or more. Perfect temp. Ana was incredible host to us and a friend. Very clean, stylish, comfortable, great location with private gate. After a rain the rivers rushing by the house while the endemic bats swooped to drink from the pool and eat bugs. We had six adult kids plus us then later a couple stay. Lots room and privacy for all. I’d stay here again anytime for sure! Pico is lovely. Full hiking trails. Three made it up MT Pico. Saw a Sei whale on a wet ride. Just the best. Thanks Ana!”
The Silveira's home is a friendly and welcoming house with a large outdoor space and in tune with nature. It is a house with an old style and already with some use. In the outer space has a grapevine with a net. A very cool and quiet place where you can relax. There is also a stone gazebo with a splendid view of the mountain and the sea. There is wireless internet. Address: Rua Padre José Silveira D'Ávila nº29, Silveira, Lajes do Pico.
“This accommodation is really nice with a sea view from one of the rooms. The possibility of eating in the garden, is very appreciable. The cleanliness is impeccable and our host we did not meet, was very responsive.”

“We had a much needed relaxing week at the studio, with only the sounds of the sea & birds, exactly what we wanted. Snorkelling off the little harbour was fantastic, with lots of different fish of all shapes, colours & sizes, plus crabs & starfish. The studio is fantastic and the Pico cheese, bread & honey left by Monica were lovely & a nice thought. We managed to find everything we needed in the village & neighbouring village, so a car is not essential. But we did borrow one for a day and drove along the east & south coast & back over centre of island. We fell in love with the island & area and will definitely return. Monica was very helpful during our stay & we had everything we needed, plus the extras, which made it very special.”
