The stunning, boutique guesthouse, Pocinho Bay, is a small, beautiful rural retreat, located in a former hidden hamlet, on the south west coast of Pico. The guesthouse is an ideal place for a special occasion with its cosmopolitan and chic style.
Double en-suite rooms : The owner, a photographer who’s travelled all over the world, has individually decorated the six double rooms, each room separated from the next in original stone cottages. Rooms have large beds, handmade from polished cedar, and the lava stone walls are adorned with gorgeous gilded framed mirrors and antique paintings. The en-suite bathrooms are modern with glass sinks and basalt surround.
There are areas to relax everywhere; from the extensive 13 hectare gardens, to the hammocks on the terrace and freshwater outdoor pool overlooking the bay. Watching Faial’s lights twinkling at dusk is spectacular…a real treat!
The Villa : There is also a gorgeous, two bedroom luxury villa with private entrance, gardens and view to the Atlantic. The spacious villa has a kitchenette, ample living space and two bathrooms, air conditioning, fireplace, wi-fi and jacuzzi.
From its dazzling coastal location with great views towards Faial, Pocinho Bay is 10 minutes away Madalena (the main town on Pico island) and 30 minutes from the airport. See below for more information on Pico island.
Located 10 minutes drive from Madalena and its whale watching companies, it is also ideally positioned for a cycling tour round Pico being on the coastal road. In the summer there are also regular ferries to Faial and São Jorge. However, there is no restaurant on site and the location is isolated so we recommend hiring a car.
