This is our second stay at Casa da Vigia. The decision to come back was an easy one based on a very positive first experience. The home is an amazing place with a beautiful view of the ocean. The home is equipped with all amenities required to make it feel like home away from home. Sra Fatima is very pleasant and extremely accommodating. Would highly recommend this location for your next visit to Pico. Can't wait to go back again!!
This is a lovely house, thoughtfully designed and furnished. Beautiful gardens and terraces, you can hear the sea from every room. At night you also hear the sound of the Cory’s shearwaters, great fun! Other wildlife in the vicinity of the house are day time bats, lizards and butterflies. The dining area, kitchen and living room are open plan and tastefully furnished, very comfortable. The house has two outdoor terraces, one off of the dining room with easy rattan chairs and dining room table and chairs. There is another terrace off of the living room with outdoor rattan comfy chairs. There are televisions in every room, wifi is available, we found it a bit patchy at times. The bedrooms are comfortable, two have lovely ensuite bathrooms with twin sinks, shower cubicle and sunken bath with another shower over. There is plenty of storage in the large fitted wardrobes. There are step out balconies in two of the bedrooms and its lovely to waken up to the sound of the sea in the morning. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a wonderful poolside barbecue with pizza oven. The pool area is also large, plenty space with sun loungers and a gazebo for shade. Take care, the terracotta tiles around the pool get very hot on sunny days. The pool is clean and well kept. Mount Pico can be seen from ome corner of the pool terrace on clear days. The house is well located for access to the main roads on Pico, the airport is 35 to 45 minutes drive depending on traffic. The house is in a quiet location with access to the sea and natural rock swimming pools nearby, there are showers and toilets at the rock pool. Take your snorkel as the water is clear and there are lots of fish! Recommended! There is s nice restaurant within a 10 minute walk of the house at the hotel Aldeia Da Fonte which has a varied menu and a nice outdoor terrace, be sure to book in advance at peak times. We enjoyed trips to the visitor centre and cafe on Mount Pico, on a clear day the scenery on the way up is beautiful, look out for cows roaming around! We also enjoyed a trip to spot whales from Lajes with Espaco Talassa, this was the highlight of our visit to Pico. If you are looking for a get away from it all holiday with some interesting things to see and beautiful scenery with a lovely villa to come home to, this property is for you. Suitable for families and groups of friends.
