A real ‘picoroto’, as the locals are called. Grown up in Madalena do Pico. As marine biologist, beekeeper and owner of a traditional wine-field, he made his life to what he loves which is nature, animals and … Petra.


From Austria and visiting Pico first in 2005, returning in 2008 and working for 7 years on the atlantic ocean with whales and dolphins and all what the sea around Pico island offers. Finally decided to settle and start the own guesthouse with Arne in 2014.


A real ‚picorota‘, as well grown up in Madalena do Pico. Since 2017 in the team of Calma do Mar and preparing for you the best breakfast for a good start in the day. With her kindness she will answer all your questions and make your stay unforgetable.
