“magic”
Reviewed April 1, 2014 for a stay in March 2012

Making this connection with Neil & Carol changed my life. It was the only place to rent that I found on the internet so I booked it. They provided a sweet cottage for me to come and go from, Carol took pity on a hippy and did my laundry a few times! The cottage is dry and hidden away in the village, very quiet and peaceful. I hope I have the chance to stay there again.

“Cute Cottage”
Reviewed October 17, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

person found this review helpful

This was a cute little studio cottage with lots of ambiance. It was clean and neat although not for anyone over 6 feet tall. It has a wonderful garden with a table and chairs so that you can enjoy it. It was beautiful. Better months to go are July and August when all the flowers are in bloom.

what a wonderful place, a relaxing tranquil hideaway from reality. Would recommend to relax and unwind in this wonderful island.

Neil and Carol have built a lovely little hideaway, and their guidebook and recommendations for places to eat were superb.

10 mins to the sea walking, and 15 to the waterfall/bathing pool. You'll need a car for the best bits of Flores

Accommodation is compact, but includes everything you could think off! Very light and welcoming. Lovely garden to sit in and relax. Location is great for walking, scenary is fantastic. Bar, shop, and lovely local restaurant 'Ocidental' serves great food, recommend the Wreckfish!

“Best place to stay in Flores”
Reviewed August 6, 2012 for a stay in July 2012
2
people found this review helpful

O Palheiro is really worth to go and to stay at least for 1 week!
Unfortunately we stayed there only 3 nights.
Fajà grande is the best location in Flores to stay and the Palheiro was really suitable for us. The apartment is small but very well furnished; it is really worthy for 2 persons, but with the added bed we manged to stay there with our child (9 years). Everithing is at the right place, you have all you need (and more!) but the real added value is the private garden, with lot of flowers and plant and with a confortable table where we could have our breakfast.
In additon to that, there is another table ... on the top of the roof, with direct access from the garden, from where you have a lovely view of the sea and the montains.
Neil, the owner, is very helpfull an kind.
I hope we will go back there for a longer period

Having spent a few days in O Palheiro I may only confirm that it is a perfect place to stay in when exploring Flores island. It's comfortable, well designed, located on the more convenient site of the island, and Neil and Carol are always helpful with plenty of local knowledge. Recommended for sure!
