My husband and I just left and we already miss it! Faial was our second stop on our Azorean honeymoon and I am so glad we stayed at Patio! Victor and Anja are great hosts and have created an amazing place to take in the beauty of the island! They are extremely accommodating, my husband is not much of a rider so for our first trip they allowed us to do one and a half hours with him and then we dropped him off and continued on for another hour and a half! I also did a 3 hour ride on completely different trails and both rides were with our guide Teresa who was fantastic, not to mention how well trained all of the horses are (I very much enjoyed Freida, she is a wonderful calm horse and we really bonded over our two rides)! The rooms are clean and comfortable stocked with a mini bar and they also provided a laundry service! We had breakfast with them all three mornings and had dinner twice, all meals were so delicious and they have a wonderful staff! Although we rented a car they do offer pick up form the airport and Cedros is only about 25/30 minutes away! They are located right on the water and have beautiful views! If we ever make it back we will definitely be staying with them again!

We are a young couple from switzerland and we stayed at the patio lodge for two nights. In addition we went on one 1/2 day trail with the horses. Everybody was extremely accomodating and we felt like we were at home. Very clean, beautiful view - just a stay which is worth it all around. The horsebackriding was well organised and professionally handled.

Experience to be reccomended!

Reception, warmth of home and kindness: the keywords of Patio.

Perfect organization of your time to make you live the best of nature, colors, pleasures of the island on horseback or not.

Many thanks to Victor and to all staff

A big thank you to Victor and his team. They looked after us do well. My son is a fussy eater but Carla and Nina cooked him his favourite foods. We have been on a number of riding holidays but this was the best well schooled horses, great trails and friendly helpful guides. We made many great memories and some new friends.

Dear Denise t,
we know how it is to travel with kids in foreign country and to find the right food for them. Not all what adults enjoy meets the kids expectations. Wherever it is possible we will find a solution for our youngest guests. Good to hear that Carla and Nina managed yours son expectations.

Thank you so much for your very nice rating.
