Cancela do Porco
Ranked #11 of 21 Pico B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 August 2012

We stayed with children in one of the appartments for one week. Enjoyed the beautiful, peaceful surroundings, the magnificent views of Mount Pico, and the fantastic sunsets. The appartments are well equipped, there is free wi-fi in the common room, pool table and mini golf. The location is some distance from Madalena and other points of interest and a rental car is essential. The manager of the Cancela do Porco, Pedro Saraiva, is very friendly and helpful.

Reviewed 5 August 2011

the apartment is big and new (ikea forniture); there are three different rural houses, two swimming pools (one for children) and a big jacuzzi outside, also a mini golf and a pool in the common space. But the owner speaks only some words in english, so forget advice or any kind of service. He let us one liter of milk, a pack of cookies and some fruits for breakfast (for 4 days...). For 140 euros per night, I would like to have more attention to details, but maybe it was my fault, because I didn't take into consideration that it's ONLY an apartment. If you decide to stay here, you'll have to rent a car or a scooter, because there are not place to eat in the nearby. I can suggest this place for families or group of people, so you can share the apartment rate :) There aren't signs to reach the place: once you get to Bandeiras, 300 mt after the church, turn right at the bus stop.

Cancela do Porco is a set of 3 cottages, fully equiped, completed with a panoramic swimming pool and outdoor jacuzzi with amazing views of Pico Mountain, S. Jorge island and Faial island.
It's just 5 minutes away from Pico Airport and 7 minutes away from Madalena's Port.
It's a wonderful place to stay if you enjoy quiet and relax and it's the perfect location to explore Pico Island.
If you enjoy outdoor activities, such as climbing Pico mountain, or whale watching, be sure to talk to Pedro and he'll arrange everything for you, so that all you need to do is to enjoy Pico island and it's amazing beauty and bliss.
I'm pretty sure we shall return!
