Your Hosts

Fogo Islanders have a way of putting you instantly at ease.

Making you feel at home here is a natural talent honed over hundreds of years of outport life. Hospitality is a point of pride on Fogo Island: we mean it when we say that this is your home away from home. At its core, hospitality means the love of the stranger. It is a regime of small kindnesses. Our innkeepers will help you feel at ease: completely comfortable and cared for. But most of all, they will make you feel loved.
