Yoga and Meditation

Start each day with a guided meditation, grounding you to be present on this magical volcanic island. Stay for self-practice or your private yoga session with Rimi and deepen your  knowledge and practice.


Hiking + Hotsprings

Full-day hike discovering some of the most beautiful spots of the island. Gain context of the volcanic history and cultural legends that have led many to believe this was the famed Atlantis. Hike includes lunch or dinner during the day, and a post-hike hotspring soak in one of the geothermal springs around the island. Exact hike curated to guest interest.


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!

Sustainable Lodging

You will be staying at quinta minuvida, which offers intentional, sustainable accommodation.  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.  Enjoy a locally sourced and in-season breakfast including many fruits and jams grown and made on-site.  


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

Your stay includes opportunities for deep connection with the senses in nature. Discover some of the most pristine corners of the island during our hike. 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.
