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.

Madalena (justostay Team)
The reservation was canceled 51 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Un contact sérieux,un acceuil chaleureux,.L'appartement est très bien situe pour la visite de lisbonne ,au coeur du meilleur quartier.Tres calme,confortable,(website hidden) recommande cette adresse vraiment très agréable pour un séjour en famille.
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.
very nice apartment！
I stayed for almost 2 weeks. The house is very beautiful, well equipped, clean, safe, cozy, bright and unique. Especially the view is fantastic. Cafe, restaurant, market, bus, tourist attractions are close. I really enjoyed and relaxed here. Highly recommended.
Un appartement extrêmement bien situé (bario alto), très commode et atypique et mignon de par la présence du patio ainsi que du studio qui est en réalité un deuxième appartement :-)
We loved the apartement, you feel like home, everything is very clean and everything was like it is decribed on the website. The terrace is a highlight!
Filipa, the owner of the apartement was very, very friendly, although we waked her up for check-in at 1:30 p.m.! She gave us many tips for a pleasant stay in Lisboa!
We will definitely com back!
Beautiful apartment, excellent location by Barrio Alto, easy check in and check out experience.
This large and very spacious apartment is perfect for a number of family or friends travelling together. The 4 bedrooms and bathrooms, with a big kitchen and huge lounge dining room give plenty of space. Madalena is very helpful with local tips and advice, and you're only a short walk from lots of wonderful little cool bars, restaurants and places to hang out. Pharmacy and mini supermarket are within 10 metres of the apartment.
This was a very nice flat. Madalena (and the owners) were very helpful and responsive.
The apartment itself is right next to the Castle, and the neighborhood is a really nice one to stay in. Quiet at night, but not too far away from the nightlife either.
One thing to be aware of is that the ceilings in the flat are very low. I'm extremely tall (6'7", 200cm) and couldn't stand up straight in the shower. Anybody 6'3" or shorter would probably not have any problems.
