Lodging in Corvo is found in the only village on the island - Vila Nova do Corvo. The normal bed capacity is around 20, while in extreme cases an extra 10 or so can be found in different private rooms. Pre booking is a must. The village is at the southern tip of the island situated on the only low land, about a square kilometre large with the small harbour, the airfield, houses and gardens, and the western agricultural lower fields.

Flights to and from Corvo normally runs three days a week weather permitting. Like in many Azorean airports there is only one landing strip, which means that hard winds, especially from the wrong directions, might result it cancelled flights. While planning a stay on Corvo it is wise to schedule at least two extra days on one of the larger islands before the return flight to the mainland in case you will be stranded on Corvo.
