About the property

Quinta do Milhafre-AL "Dália"

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. We have a laundry service, a reception with a library, a small coffee corner, free wireless internet access and we serve homemade breakfast. There is a playground for the children and many gradens.

Our Quinta: We have 4 houses on our property: Hortênsia, Dália, Girassol & Magnólia. We also have various BBQ areas with outdoor tables. There is a lookout which gives you a beautiful view of our Quinta, its suroundings and of S. Jorge.

About Cindy Freitas

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.

Why Cindy Freitas chose Portugal

We love what we do and want our guests to enjoy the quiet, cozyness of our houses.

What makes this house unique

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.

Wonderful little house with wonderful view

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful little house with wonderful view -

everything was very clean and proper in this newly built magnolia!

Really great were

- view

- breakfast !!

- free internet access via laptop in the main house

- main house with pool and drinks

Furthermore we really appreciated:

- washing lines

- tupperwares in the kitchen

- tablecloth for the terrace

- easy to find because of signs in the village

Might be added:

- real chairs in the house instead of benches (for us it was ok, because a. it was on the photos, so no surprise b. we always sat outside to eat)

We really enjoyed the stay at Cindys house - very nice and affordable opportunity to stay on Pico! Thanks a lot!!

Excellent stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

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.
