Havia uma cesta de boas vindas com produtos regionais. As proprietárias sao muito amaveis, e nos deixaram muito a vontade todo o tempo. A casa é nova e completa, banho muito bom, camas muito boas, diversos utensílios de cozinha. Quando voltar ao Pico certamente ficarei aqui novamente.

Authentic village house with fully renewed and modern interior and large garden with unique view of both the ocean and Mount Pico. Very enjoyable and informative contacts with the homeowner. A mostly sunny home base after visits to the attractive but often foggy mountainous interior of the island. Not far from the larger city of Lajes with good opportunities for whale watching. Highly recommended!

Review on TripAdvisor: 5/5

Wir waren zu dritt in diesem Ferienhaus und rundum begeistert. Die Einrichtung ist geschmackvoll und praktisch. Insbesondere die Küche lässt bezüglich Ausstattung keine Wünsche offen. Es gibt 2 Kaffeemaschinen, zum Brühen und als Kapselvariante. Alles war sehr sauber und anheimelnd. Die Gastgeberin war unglaublich freundlich. Sie organisierte für uns whalewatching (unbedingt machen!!) und fragte regelmäßig nach uns. Das Haus liegt mitten im Dorf. Man hat Besuch von Katzen, eine Kuh weidet vor dem Fenster- man ist mittendrin. Trotzdem hatten wir von der Terrasse eine tollen Blick aufs Meer beim Essen. Alles in allem: sehr empfehlenswert!!

It’s a great accommodation. It’s well located on the island an Vera gave us great tips about visiting the island. Everything is clean. And there’s more equipment provided than expected (hair dryer, washing machine). And we really didn’t expect that great welcome basket. Thank you very much! We can only recommend booking Casa do Almance! 🙂

Casinha de Nesquim

Nous avons passé une semaine sur l’île de pico qui est magnifique à découvrir.
Nous gardons un agréable souvenir de ce logement récemment rénové tout confort et fonctionnel possédant tous les équipements nécessaires, superbe jardin meublé avec en prime une magnifique vue sur la mer et les vignes environnantes typiques de Pico.
L’endroit est reposant, au calme, à deux pas d’une piscine naturelle et d’un bar/resto
Nous avons eu l’agréable surprise à notre arrivée de trouver des produits typiques des Açores en guise de bienvenue. La propriétaire est très gentille et prévenante, disponible si besoin.
Un logement que nous recommandons sans aucun soucis !

Super séjour dans la maison d’Aurélie dans un charmant petit village du bout du monde. Le lieu ne manque pas de charme. La maison donne tout le confort nécessaire avec en bonus une décoration soignée. Les extérieurs invitent au repos et à la rêverie avec l’océan comme toile de fond. Nous garderons un souvenir gourmand du pain brioché local offert à notre arrivée. Sentiers de randonnée et petite piscine naturelle proches de la maison. La communication avec Aurélie et Susana est très agréable permettant un séjour de qualité.

Casinha de Nesquim is a perfect place to stay: The house is very comfortable with all the conveniences; beautiful scenery, nice relaxing chairs to watch the sea or surroundings; washing machine; delicious rain shower; very good WIFI etc etc. And we were so warmly welcomed by a basket with food and drinks that you feel at home immediately. We enjoyed the natural seapool, not far away, some good restaurants in the neighboring villages and especially sitting on the porch watching the sea and listening to the special sound of the Cagarros when it gets dark..; something one will never forget!

Nous avons passé un superbe séjour dans la Casinha de Nesquim. Cette jolie petite maison est située dans un cadre magnifique ,entourée de verdure d’un côté et de la mer de l’autre. C’est un endroit idéal pour se reposer et pour se ressourcer. Le lit est très confortable et la cuisine est très bien équipée. Nous reviendrons, c’est certain!

Casinha de Nesquim is a small but very beautiful and well organized holiday home. It has all the comfort and modernity to spend a few days in the middle of nature by the sea. The kitchen is fully equipped, the internet is fast and the bed is very comfortable. The backyard is a beautiful and well decorated space that invites you to read a book, have a drink or just relax. The front porch allows you to enjoy the beautiful view of the sea. It’s a great place to recharge your mind and body.

We loved the days spent in this house. The weather was excellent (November :D), which allowed us to eat outside and enjoy the beauty of the backyard and the surrounding nature. The house is very well equipped. We loved the decoration and comfort. We hope to be back next year.
