It's not a hotel, but an apartment. Cancela do Porco contains 3 apartments in Bandeiras. Very traditional and simple construction, with a nice and functional interior. The apartments share a swimming pool, and a small midget golf course (fun for children I suppose), and a beautiful garden (where every apartment also had a private section) looking at the impressing Pico mountain.
The very friendly owner collected us at the airport, and we followed him in our rental car (which you really need on this location) to the apartment. Some bread, local cheese, fruits and other food were available in the apartment, and he also invited us for his restaurant Ancoradouro in Madalena, some 10 km away. This restaurant serves great food, and has nice views over the sea passage to Faial island. The owner also produces wine, whereby we really loved the Teraz D Lava, a well known white wine throughout the Azores.
We sincerely enjoyed staying in Cancela do Porco. If we return to Pico we like to return to this apartment.More
