Cooking and the Dinner

One of your evenings you'll be joining in cooking an authentic meal with your hosts. We use local and in-season ingredients coming mostly from our garden. You'll be able to pick ingredients fresh from the farm and learn some traditional cooking techniques. A regional wine is included with dinner. This is a true Azorean experience!

Intentional Sustainable Lodging

You will be staying at quinta minuvida, which offers intentional, sustainable accommodation. Step beyond the indulgences of traditional lodging and experience the Azores as a treasure to cherish and protect. The lodge features five thoughtful suites, outdoor pool, yoga studio, guest kitchen, living room with fireplace, outdoor grill, firepit, observatory, organic vegetable garden, and one acre of orchards. We are centrally located, only 15 minutes from the airport and about 30 minutes from most attractions. We are close to beaches, walking trails, hotsprings and bike paths, not to mention the largest fishing port in the Azores. An added bonus is spending time with very special and friendly residents - the animals of the quinta including Eskimo, Biscoito and Moo!

Discovering the Island

Our time will include opportunities for deep connection with the senses in nature. Discover some of the most pristine corners of the island during our hikes and excursions. Breathe and feel the breeze on your skin, smell the mineral-rich soil, step on the black sand beaches and verdant green hillsides and taste the ocean air. You'll also have free time for your own exploration or to simply relax.

My second visit. I had an amazing time the first time, and an even better experience this trip. Yoga, meditation, and reiki in this environment was energizing. Thank everyone at Minuvida for your hospitality.
