Joe’s Place is a friendly home-from-home on the outskirts of Pico’s main harbour town of Madalena.

This traditional Azorean-style house is owned by the delightful duo of Claudia and Johannes, and has five spacious rooms, all with air conditioning and free Wi-Fi. There’s also a quiet terrace with a view cross the channel to the neighbouring island of Faial where you can prepare for the day over breakfast in the morning, and it’s a lovely, peaceful spot to relax with a book in the afternoons (possibly with a cheeky glass of Pico wine).

Breakfasts are a particular highlight, with fresh bread, croissants, cakes, jams, and local yoghurts and cheeses from across the island, and in the evenings, it’s a short walk/taxi ride into the centre of Madalena for dinner. Joe’s Place is a perfect base for exploring Pico by car or in the company of our resident guides, and the ferry terminal is close by if you’d like to pop over to Faial for the day.
