About Picodreams

The company Pico Dreams was founded in March 2015 as a result of the activity carried out by the partners since 2010 in the field of local vacation accommodation in the town of São Roque do Pico, Pico Island, Azores. Pico Dreams is a vacation resort, currently made up of three separate buildings on a property of around 5,000m2.
