I don't know how you can top perfection! Our accommodations were well appointed , spacious and clean. The gardens , pool area and the views are impeccable . But the best part are the wonderful meals ! If you don't have dinner prepared by Jeremy , you have missed a truly memorable dining experience ! We will be back !!!

Jeremy and Annelise have a very nice place on the island Pico. They are wonderful hosts - and we enjoyed our stay there a lot. Thanks for the great dinner - it was delicious! When we decide to come back to the Acores, we will definitly stay with you! Greetings Ute & Ralf

We stayed at O Zimbreiro while visiting Pico Island for 2 nights (unfortunately only two nights). The b&b was easy to find, clear marks from the center of Piedade (made by the potter) lead you to a true paradise where Jeremy and Anna-Lise greet you with a big smile. You feel welcome instantaneously. The rooms are very nice and clean,... More

O’Zimbreiro is a very nice place to stay on a lovingly cultivated property. The whole family gave us a cordial welcome and we liked the place from the first minute. Our room was spacious, clean and beautifully furnished and we had a space heater since it can be cold at night during this time of the year. With the room... More

We always har large comfortable rooms, very clean as everything at the area. There´s a nice garden with a swimming-pool and the view to Sao Jorge. Anne-Lise and Jeremy provided... More

Of course, the rooms are great, of course there is a magnificient pool and of course you will be very well received by this Belgian family but the secret is their banana jam. You ll stay in Pico longer just for that. Also a great story of this Belgian couple who left Belgium with children to start something new here.... More

O Zimbreiro is a magical place. Perched out on a peninsula at the eastern end of Pico it is wonderfully peaceful with an amazing, uninterrupted view out to sea across the property. We would reiterate the comments of other reviewers in terms of how good Jeremy and Anne-lise are as hosts. Quite apart from the breakfasts featuring fresh baking and... More

We stayed here for four nights, not enough. We had dinner two of the nights and breakfast each morning. All the food was local (fish caught daily) and everything else was grown on site. Prior to getting to the island, Jeremy was helpful getting things set up and when we got there gave us a lot of great suggestions on... More

This was my favorite stay of our 10 day island hopping visit. Jeremy and Anne-lise were very welcoming. The room was large and clean, inviting, quiet, and had wonderful views. The whole property is quaint and peaceful. They sell bottles of wine which we enjoyed on our superior room porch with the view of Sao Jorge and the ocean. The... More
