My wife and I - together with her sister and mum - stayed with Lucy and Jose for 2 nights. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with the minimum of fuss. This was true before we had even booked, with several emails exchanged to answer questions and, once booked, to ensure all was running smoothly.
We arrived and left Pico via the ferries that connect the island to Horta in Faial and Velas is Sao Jorge, and Lucy and Jose provided transport at both ends of our stay.
On arrival, we were immediately made to feel very welcome and told to ask if we needed anything. Lucy even dropped us at a restaurant soon after we had arrived so that we could take lunch.
The rooms are spacious and, with a supermarket nearby, it's great that a kitchen is also available.
What's not to like? Well, our trip coincided with a humid spell and we had to fight a few mosquitoes, but hey! So what? Pico is lovely, the peak is permanently eye-catching and Lucy's is a great place from which to explore. Go and enjoy!

Despite the bad weather we spent really good time with.Lucy and her family.
The.house is big and cosy. Rent a car or a.scooter would be.easier to move around the isle
Thank you for let us really feel like home

Lucy's B&B is a cozy homey very spacious B&B located a few min drive from the heart of Madalena in a quiet residential area. It is a three bedroom flat, available as two bed room flat (as one room is used as a storage) in two story building. The bed rooms are great: one looking over a small vineyards in the back to the mountain and the other having a peekaboo view of the sea. The apt has a nice private balcony with the nice view of ocean in a far. It's a nice oasis after the day at the sea with the blowing winds :)
Lucy and Don live downstairs on the ground floor and the apt above is for letting. Lucy and Don were excellent hosts, super friendly and helpful. Staying here is like staying as their friend. They were very personable and were happy to cater to whatever the needs I had.
The apt does not have washer and dryer, but Lucy provides a complimentary laundry service. If you are not used to have your clothing hanging outside (as it is customary on the island) you might consider bringing enough changes of clothing for your stay.
