Pico island, named for its imposing mountain, is one of the most beautiful and underrated island of the Azores. Only second to S. Miguel in size the ‘Mountain Island’ stands majestically in the middle of the Azorean central group. Pico island history was built on the destiny of is whale hunting and wineries traditions. The famous Pico wines and the UESCO world patrimony designated vineyards, as well as wooden boat building, are contemporary fixtures of Pico. Whale hunting, long gone, gave way to a movement of fair treatment study and observation of whales, dolphins, and other sea mammals. Volcanic eruptions ended 300 years ago and Pico is considered a dormant volcano. The island of Pico is 55 km long and 40km wide. It is divided into 3 municipalities, “Madalena”, “São Roque”, and “Lajes”. Pico at 2,319-metres high sits atop of the world’s biggest mountain range the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.Pico is the highest point in the Azores and Portugal.
The orange House is located in the small village of Madalena, with easy access to the airport and to the boats that make connection to the other islands.

Fantástico apartamento. Decorado con gusto, muy limpio y con todo lo que puedas necesitar para una buena estancia. Nosotros fuimos con dos bebés y nos pareció un sitio ideal, tranquilo y muy bien comunicado apenas a 5 min andando de la Plaza de Rossio desde de la que estás cerca de los barrios más interesantes de Lisboa. Recomendable 100%.
Wonderful stay at this perfectly situated apartment. Spacious with beautiful furniture and in a wonderful neighborhood. We loved the two parks that are nearby for our kids. Access to public transport easy and convenient. Market/grocery for snacks, wine etc was easy. Chocolate and coffee store downstairs is delicious. New restaurant (El Tomate) opened across the street. Washer/dryer is nice to have and the cleaning service is very efficient. We had a terrific stay here and would come back for sure.
This apartment is really great! It's modern and pretty. The French windows open to a lovely, sunny, charming street, Rua Garret, and when they are closed, they keep the noise and light out. It couldn't be better located. Though you can walk to everything in the historic district, there are many cafes and restaurants right in the neighborhood. The provided list of recommended restaurants is very good. We were actually greeted by the owner who couldn't have been more gracious. She even offered us a ride to the airport after we "checked out". I have to say, I'm not entirely surprised, or at least it lined up with my overall experience in Portugal. I found the Portuguese people to be the absolute nicest people on the whole of any country I've visited. Since this is supposed to be a review of the apartment, I'll end by saying that this apartment is so nice, I would live here if I could.
My friends and I stayed in the flat for 3 night. The location was superb - very close to the all the places we went out to. The flat was very clean, simply designed - but our chief grumble was that it was really very cold - and there could have been more in the way of linen/heaters - but nothing super bad. The balcony is small, but enough to enjoy some very beautiful views.
Where you stay in Lisbon is key. This apartment is in a prime spot. The Principe Real is a fantastic area. There are many great cafes, coffee bars ,markets and pastrie places. Very hip and cool shops are abundant. You can walk to almost everything. The near by park is a fun hangout after dark. The all night crazy bars are only a short walk. My entire family enjoyed our stay. The bedrooms faced the Botanic Gardens and were very quiet with comfortable beds. The living room was in the front of the flat and had several window balconies hanging over the exciting steet scene below. The place was clean and well maintained. The host provided everything we needed to have a great stay. I would go there again in a heart beat!

L'appartement, situé prés du château Saint George est très agréable: bien aménagé et équipé. La situation est parfaite,très calme mais proche de l'animation et au cœur d'un quartier pittoresque.
Contrary to what the automated posting says, the reservation was NOT
cancelled the day before arrival.
It was unilaterally cancelled by Madalena on the morning of 28 December,
the day AFTER our arrival.
The fact is that these apartments were so damp and mouldy that it was
impossible to remain in them for an hour, let alone spend a night (or a
week, which is what we had paid for SEVERAL WEEKS in advance).
The person in charge of giving us the keys turned up late despite having
our having made several calls to notify her of our imminent arrival, as
agreed. Apparently she was late because she was buying toilet roll and soap
because there was none in the apartment. *She agreed that the apartments
were not in a suitable condition for rental and that if it were her, she
would "make all the necessary complaints" to the landlady. *
*Frankly, I am shocked that these apartments are still available for rental
on airbnb*. I would not like another person to have to go through the same
ordeal as we did. Five members of our group of nine had travelled from
Brazil to spend a week in Lisbon with us and the experience with Madalena
and her substandard accommodation was most unpleasant, spoiling what should
have been a happy family time. I won't even mention the unforeseen expenses
incurred as a result of the whole situation.
- extreme damp, absolute *health hazard *confirmed by doctor in our group
- *furry mould* growing on the walls in various locations
- thick layer of disgusting *furry mould* growing on table and four chairs
- *black mould* growing on sopping wet towels left on the beds
- apartments *very dirty*, no evidence of recent cleaning
- pubic hairs and various *dirt and debris* in bath and sink
- *toilet lid broken*
- *garden overgrown and neglected, very dirty.*
Instead of trying to relocate our group in another apartment, Madalena
merely booked us into a hotel of her choice for the first night (of a total
of 7 nights booked at least six weeks in advance) and left us to our
devices to find accommodation for 9 people at short notice during the
In short: *by far the worst experience* on airbnb and in any other
accommodation rental situation.
