The Azores Islands are a Portuguese archipelago chain located in the North Atlantic Ocean, between Europe and North America. This autonomous region, roughly about 900 miles west of the coast of Portugal,  is composed of nine major islands that are all of volcanic origin. Renowned for the raw beauty and untouched natural scenery that is rich in wildlife, this is a dream destination, a tranquil Atlantic paradise lost in time.  While you will definitely have time to relax and rejuvenate, there are an infinite number of things to explore while staying on the islands! Discover the deliciously tantalizing local cuisine, from fresh seafood to spicy stews and exotic fruit. Spend time learning about the unique wine culture of the Pico volcano area, walking through the beautiful coastal vineyards and visiting small traditional villages along the way. Trek along Mount Pico, the tallest volcano of the Azores Islands, taking in the incredible nature and complex biodiversity. Take part in numerous ocean activities such as whale watching, canyoning, diving and kayaking for an unforgettable experience!   Your home for the week will be a luxurious, spacious villa immersed in the lush, verdant landscape, with panoramic views of the ocean, islands and volcanoes as far as the eye can see. This will be the perfect base for unwinding, spending time in nature, and easy access for exploring the surrounding area.
