About the Accommodation

Forget your everyday life, hectic and stressful, and let yourself be seduced by the breathtaking scenery of the island of Pico, and an unforgettable experience in direct contact with nature. 

Surrounded by a peaceful forest, an informal atmosphere and an enchanting view over the ocean and the volcano, Alma do Pico was carefully constructed to blend into its natural surroundings, allowing guests to truly relax and focus on wellbeing and reconnect with the elements. 

The rustic, yet modernly-equipped wooden studios and apartments at Alma do Pico all feature a kitchenette, private bathroom, and patio and are surrounded by a green garden area.

Guests are welcome to cook their own meals in the kitchen at their disposal, which has a dining area next to it. Alternatively guests can visit the Alma's restaurant and taste their varied menu while enjoying the panoramic views of the ocean and the volcano.

The swimming pool area has a wooden deck with sun loungers and faces neighboring Faial Island with views over the Atlantic Ocean. The unit also features a Spa & Wellness center, where guests may enjoy a massage and other treatments. 

About the Destination

Often referred to as Europe's “Best Kept Secret”, the Azores have become an increasingly popular destination with year-round appeal for travelers. Just four hours from Boston, the Azores are now easier to access and explore than ever before. Pico Island, dominated by Portugal's highest mountain-the majestic Pico- is an island of unique beauty, authentic customs and traditions, and a mesmerizing man-made landscape protected by UNESCO. With our flight and hotel package we invite you to visit and have a wonderful vacation in one of the most beautiful islands of the Atlantic.  

Pico Island is known for its remarkable pattern of stone-walled vineyards (currais) which paint its stunning green landscape, for its rocky lava shores and for the imposing Pico Mountain. Wander around Criação Velha, a well preserved wine growing area and marvel at its intact vineyard landscape and culture. Taste the local wines and admire the construction of typical black basalt rock houses. Learn about Pico's rich history and traditions by visiting the Wine Museum and the Whaler's Museum and discover Pico's long wine-making tradition dating back to the 15th century and its past whale-hunting customs. 

Descend into Gruta das Torres, one of the world's longest lava tubes. Climb the highest mountain in Portugal or simply admire its grandeur from different spots on the island. Go hiking,  whale-watching, swim in natural swimming pools and admire the island's spectacular coastal setting.
