One of the joys of traveling is meeting people like Helen! What a gracious and generous host who was proactive in making my stay at Miradoura Papalva in Pico one of the best experiences of my trip. In addition to her wonderful hospitality, the accommodations could not have been better. What a stunningly beautiful spot and what a beautifully furnished room. Pico is an amazing place and it was made all the better because of my stay at Helen´s place. I have to thank her good friend and tourist guide, Vera, too, for all the travel tips! If you go to Pico, and I strongly recommend it, stay at the Guest House at Miradoura Papalva!
