In love with Pico

How a guy from Terceira Island and a girl from France fell in love with Pico

Pico is an island that has its own atmosphere that leaves no one indifferent.

Rui is from Terceira Island and Aurélie is French.
They met each other in 1998 and have been together ever since.
Both studied tourism and always dreamed of having their own project in this area.
Since visiting Pico for the first time, they have fallen in love with this island which, in addition to nature, the sea and the mountain, offers the calm, peace and tranquility that very few places in the world do, Pico has its own spirit and environment.
This uniqueness and authenticity were two of the reasons why they decided to invest in holiday houses here and not elsewhere.
In 2016 they started buying old houses with the aim of recovering and renting them.
In 2018 they opened the first house in Pico, Casa do Almance.
In the same year, they registered the brand My Azores Home.
In 2019 they opened the second house, Casinha de Nesquim.
Other houses are already projected in the future.
