Run by a delightful couple, Paulo (Portuguese) and Hermance (French), Joe’s Place is a friendly guesthouse. It provides a home from home feel in a convenient location just 10 minutes walk from the Port of Madalena, with its cafés, restaurants, supermarkets, tourist information office and museum.

Joe’s Place is a traditional Azorean house in Madalena, the capital of Pico island, and has five delightful rooms with air conditioning and free WiFi. One of the rooms can sleep five and is ideal for a family.

There are also 2 terraces with lovely views where you can enjoy your breakfast in the morning and a glass of Pico wine and homemade cakes in the evening. Breakfast is a highlight and an impressive spread with lots of homemade goodies; bread, croissants, cakes, jams and yoghurt and local cheeses and cooked choice of the day.

Every year the guesthouse is closed from 01 November till 31 March.

Joe's Place is ideally positioned just on the outskirts of the port Madalena on Pico island. Also, you can easily get the ferry over to Faial and São Jorge once you've explored this spectacular island. See below for more information on Pico island.


Joe's Place is near Madalena which is a base for whale watching and diving and is within short drives of the spectacular walks on the island including Mt Pico.
