Write in Pico
Breath our fresh air, reflect, rest, relax, and inspire yourself and write. Aldeia da Fonte, on Pico Island, the Azores, is the perfect place to be creative.
The atmosphere is warm and peaceful, the setting is idyllic: six volcanic stone houses (recently renovated) with central heating, carefully decorated for your comfort. Free High-Speed Internet and a fine dinning restaurant. Outside, splendid gardens and black rock bays with crushing waves. The soundscape is filled by tunes of ocean and birds . There are no traffic jams, no stressful schedules, no noise.
Our rainy and humid weather carries the mystique of the tropics, but also the pleasantness of mild and steady temperatures all year around. Pico Mountain, in the background emanates volcanic magnetism, an omnipresent energy, steady and beautiful.
You can walk by the sea trail to the atlantic swimming pool, which overlook the ocean and the small fishing vilage Lajes do Pico in the background. Depending on the season you can also go whale and dolphin watching. You can still enjoy our sea lounge or go down to our cliff platforms and dive in the sea.
At Fonte Cuisine, the hotel's restaurant, you will find fresh free-range fish and beef. The menu ranges from typical local cuisine to international and fusion cuisine, including several choices according to your diet and preferences.
Pico's small population (its the second largest island of the Azores and has about 14 000 people) provides the necessary quietness and tranquility.
Around the island you may visit museums, viewpoints and secret places. You can enjoy local traditions and ways of living. And, of course, you can visit our vineyards considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which produce the famous verdelho wine, drunk by czars.
If wine is not for you, then you can find a wide range of fruit based firewaters and the rosquilhas (traditional sweet bread) toasted and served with locally produced butter. Two delicacies not to be missed!
Come and be inspired!
