We Love How Our Guests Feel
”We usually don't mind the place we stay where on vacation... just another place to sleep in, we thought. And we were wrong. The place is wonderful, the view breathtaking, the apartment is cozy, the outdoor patio better than any other place in the island to dinner. Every need we had was satisfied by the host. Helen says she wants to make her guests feel like they are at home. Well, she is wrong... you'll definitely feel way much better than home. And it is absolutely underpriced. Just go there, when you are in PicoMATTEO - ITALY - AUGUST 2021

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!
Everything was perfect and we really felt like home.
The room and bed were very comfy, and the bathroom had all the things you can need.
Breakfast full of homemade and homegrown products were perfect.
Helen helped us with good places to eat and other recommendations, very appreciate during the low season because a lot of places were closed or closing the kitchen early.
Free parking close to the house. Perfect views from the house. Thanks for all Helen!
THE STAFF WERE AMAZING
The staff was amazing, answering and giving advice about what to do on the island with great recommendations!
The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was out of this world!
Also, the view is stunning, if you're lucky you might even see some Whales from the property!
JUST AMAZING !
For starters, the location is amazing. You get splendid views of the ocean and of Pico mountain in clear days.
Additionally, everything about the guest house is beautiful: the breakfast/cooking area, the front porch, the decoration, etc.
They even have large binoculars so you can try and spot a whale/dolphin. Then the room, amazing and comfortable, with all the necessary amenities. Super clean AND desinfected, with mosquito screens on the windows and all the appliances you might need.
Most of all, Helena, the host, is a wonderful person. Extremely helpful, she showed us on the map which roads were good to use and which ones to avoid in Pico, she gave us some tips about climbing the mountain, provided a heat pack for my companion's back pain and even offered us two slices of homemade chocolate cake she had just made!
Honestly, one of the best places I have stayed at. You will not be disappointed!
Our stay at the guesthouse was amazing and one of the highlights of our trip.
The location is perfect, quiet with a wonderful view. The room was clean, cozy and all facilities were perfect but what really made our stay unique and wonderful was the host Helen. She did everything she could to give us the best experience possible.
She helped us to plan & book our trips on the island and had great recommendations for the other islands. She even booked a slot for our corona test (big help). Last but not least, the delicious breakfast.... :)) with fresh ingredients from the island.
If you visit Pico you definitely have to book your stay at Miradoura da Papalva Guest House, it’s not a recommendation, it’s a MUST;)
Helen, thanks again for the hospitality and this wonderful experience.
The attention from the hosts, Vera and Helena, was beyond perfect.
They arranged my visit to Gruta das Torres and a tour for whale watching and they made my stay really comfortable. Breakfast is great, with corn bread, homemade jams of local fruits, local cheese, fresh fruit... My room had great views of the sea and from other rooms you can see the Pico volcano. Very quiet place but very well located to get in less than 30 minutes Lajes, Madalena or Sao Roque.
Helen is a super nice person and a heart of the property
Spent a great time there.
Helen (the host) is a super nice person and a heart of the property:)
