Why the Azores is a MUST SEE retreat destination:
As many of you know, Ian and I went to the Azores last September and lets just say we fell in love with it. :)
The land, the people, the food, the culture...it's unlike any place I've ever traveled to, and is absolutely breathtaking and magical. It's an outdoor activity lovers paradise, with something for everyone - incredible hiking through rolling pastures and volcanic rims, soaking in hot springs, as well as world class surfing and gorgeous black sand beaches. It's also incredibly clean, safe, first-world and zika free - woohoo! The climate is also amazing, warm, generally sunny and high 60's / low 70's during the day, and cooler at night, perfect for sleeping. I could go on and on... please feel free to message me or call me if you want to chat in more detail about my experience, but I truly think all of you will love it there.
The Azores are a magical, volcanic land, full of natural, raw beauty, a temperate climate and endless outdoor activities. Truly an adventure lovers paradise, and under 6 hours from Boston!
Our days will include always optional yoga and pilates classes with Kristin & Antonio, hikes to some of the most incredible vistas on the island, soaks in natural hot springs, and exploration of neighboring towns and beaches. There will also be plenty of time for relaxation amongst the beautiful orchards of Quinta Minuvida, our home for the week.
All meals are included, and will be nourishing, fresh, and delicious, so that you can get a true taste of Azorean fare. Our accommodations feature lovingly renovated suites, each unique and gorgeous, with its own private bathroom.
