Adega do Farol is a carefully-restored, traditional two-bedroom cottage on Pico’s rural north coast.
Azorean Adegas are lava stone buildings, traditionally used in the production of wine. As the industry declined here in the north coast village of Prainha, these attractive buildings were carefully restored by local artisans – adding the home comforts of modern living whilst maintaining their original character.
Adega fo Farol is a two-storey, two-bedroom house with a lovely first floor terrace overlooking Prainha’s harbour and the neighbouring island of Sao Jorge beyond. There’s a fully-equipped kitchen, laundry and bathroom, with the traditional feel of the décor running right through the property.
It’s a short walk to one of our favourite swimming spots on Pico – the natural seawater swimming pools at the western-end of the village. The Acoriana Tapas and Wine House overlooks the pools and serves some of the best Azorean cuisine on the island, and the nearby Katekero Mercado supermarket will keep you well-stocked with groceries.
Due to its rural location, we recommend including a hire car during your stay but it’s not crucial – if you’d like to avoid driving, we can include a couple of tours with our resident guide.
