holiday house, calm & relaxing area, surrounded by nature
Located on the Eastern tip of the island of Pico, our Quinta offers you a beautiful view of the neighbour island São Jorge. On clear days, you can even catch a glimpse of the island of Terceira. The sound of the birds chirping and the many trees and flowers on the grounds will provide you with a relaxing stay. The modern architecture blends in with the lava rock and gardens outdoors. These gardens inspired us on giving the house its name: 'Dália'. The holiday rental house is for self-catering.
About Us:: Quinta do Milhafre is a small family business, built by the owners them selves. The idea is to provide guests with a relaxing vacation. We speak English and Portuguese. Guests are welcome to use the different barbeque & outdoor sitting areas.

About the Owner
We began to build our property up in 2000. My father and husband built all the houses, the stone walls, the lookout, the BBQ's... Me and my mother did the gardens, make and serve breakfast and tend to the houses and guests. It is truely a family business! I went to University in the Algarve, where I got a 4 year degree in tourism. I have since then works in an apart-hotal, a youth hostel a car rental here in Pico and I have also worked in a tourist attraction in Toronto, Canada. I have been teaching tourism related classes since 2007.

The cottage was SO CLEAN and comfortable. Thanks you guys, for taking such good care of us, and keeping the wood coming for us to stay warm, during that storm. We loved the islands and plan to return for a long stay next year. All the very best, Ella & Bob Kot (U.S.A.)
Superb location and very quiet
We are from France and stayed in Pico for 2 nights (too short). The house location is very impressive: large garden with local trees and shrubs, houses very quiet, large and very clean with all you need. The owners are very helpful and friendly.
Location near the East side of Pico with lot of natural areas to visit.
Recommended for all!
We are a Dutch couple and stayed in Hortencia for 5 nights. First of all, the house was absolutely fantastic. Brand new, large and very clean with everything you need. The owners built it themselves which was quite impressive. The area is a bit remote but we liked it very much. The views from the patio are lovely and the family who owns it is very friendly and helpful. The father even took us for a nice long walk just because he liked it. There is a main building (also brand new) with a bar and a pool table.
From the Owner
“We love what we do and want our guests to enjoy the quiet, cozyness of our houses.”

From the Owner
“The fact that we own 7km2 of land, where the houses are located - including our house, the various gardens, stone walls and pathways, BBQ's, the library and now a playground - offers a quiet vacation. We also offer outdoor sitting areas and all the houses offer a sea view with a view of the island of S. Jorge. We also have a fireplace in Magnólia - a new addition - making it quit cozy during the cold weather.”
