Fogo Island Inn
Scale of 90-100
Spectacularly sited inn with 29 guest accommodations in a modernist white oblong structure supported by steel stilts above the shoreline rocks, near a remote fishing village off the island’s northeast coast. Rooms, many with woodburning stoves, feature tall window-walls overlooking the sea, warm wood floors with in-floor heating, baths with walk-in showers and colorful quilts and furnishings crafted on the island. Wonderful glass-walled dining room with excellent regional cuisine; also cozy library, art gallery, lounge, cinema, exercise room, hot tubs and rooftop sauna. Many hiking trails near the inn; other seasonal activities include fishing, boating, snowshoeing, ice skating and hosted visits to local sites and craftspeople. Exceptionally friendly, hospitable staff.

Spectacular architecture; delicious food; imaginative activities; the feeling of being surrounded by nature.
Very little, aside from the difficulty of getting there.
Good to Know
In the small second-floor cinema, you can choose from a series of short films about the island, which provide a wonderful introduction to its people and culture.
