Excellent rooms, and several terraces to relax and enjoy the scenery. Friendly owners who helped arrange tours of the island (and who also assist with hikes). Good food (from limited ingredients available on the island).

The view of the valley is simply unbelievable, the hiking trails start by either walking up or down from the house and Jose and Belen are very helpful. And let's not forget the food - every single dinner was different made out of fresh ingredients and all of...

A fantastic place to stay. The setting is stunning, the hosts are friendly and knowledgeable and helpful, and the food is fantastic. There are two terraces for sitting and watching the amazing scenery. It's also in a perfect position for hiking. Highly recommended.

Going to stay in rural Santo Antao we really didn't know what to expect - what we found was what we would call a 5* B & B. The first surprise was the exquisite view, the next was the power shower, then came the amazing dinner and finally comfy bed with lovely warm quilts for the cold mountain nights. Jose...

Very nice situated at the end of the valley of Paul. Beautiful view and room with the terrace and warm welcome by hosts. Although it was cold that week. After hiking in the valley or up to the Cova, diner is served back in the guesthouse. With a beer or a wine what else do you want.

I can not praise this hotel enough -- the lovely Spanish owners treated us to a lovely two-night stay in their well-appointed hotel. Each room has spectacular views, an incredible shower, free wifi, and access to the rooftop lounge with hammocks and boardgames. The hotel was able to arrange all of our transportation and hiking guides, and the meal prepared...
