This summer we´re traveling the third (forth) time round the azorean islands. Our favorite island is Pico, not at least cause of the O´Zimbreiro. This place is really a paradise! 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

Unfortunately, we were only able to stay at O Zimbreiro for one night on our trip around Pico but we were certainly glad that we did. Our bungalow was large and beautifully decorated. What's more as the weather was a bit cool we were provided with a heater, which we appreciated greatly. The bungalow is situated in lovely, peaceful gardens... More

These were our main thoughts looking back longingly on our holiday at O'Zimbreiro. We stayed for a week and the room that we shared with our two children was spacious and comfortable. They loved the pool which was used daily following our exploration of the island. Prior to arriving on Pico we had read that the restaurant food was not... More

I stayed with my family at O Zimbreiro one week and I must say this is one or the nicest places I stayed in my life. We had one of the superior rooms with a wonderful view on lush vegetation, the ocean and the neighboring island Sao Jorge. The owners are very friendly, helpful and available without ever being intrusive.... More

I was not an inhouse guest, but staying on Pico for 3 months I can say that I know Pico better than many Picarotos now. I have visited all hotels, therefore I am able to compare neutrally. O Zimbreiro is a paradise. So harmonious, so peaceful, the owners are an extremely nice, belgian family who take best care of every... More
