My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. When we arrived, Pedro (one of the owners) met us at the airport and it was a mere few minutes drive to this mini resort. Our one bedroom apartment was spacious and airy and built using the traditional Pico stones. It was perfect for 2 people, but could comfortably accommodate 4... More

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...

I was not supposed to stay in Cancela do Porco during my visit to Pico but had to because there were no rooms available in the place that was my first choice (Pocinho Bay), and the options in the island are not many. In the end, however, I am convinced that I didn’t miss anything with the change of plans.... More

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... More

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,... More

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... More
