" Our Azores trip was excellent except for a bit of rain :-); The volcano hikes were spectacular and the side trip notes were very helpful. Doing the volcano hikes was fantastic, especially being high enough to see the Atlantic Ocean to the south and the north, beautiful!We also enjoyed the beach walks and walking to town from our hotel, Santa Barbara Eco Hotel.We stayed at the Santa Barbara Eco Hotel which was excellent. The room, property, pool and spa and services were all excellent. We enjoyed meals everyday at their restaurant which where all excellent. A very relaxing and restful and comfortable hotel.The restaurant at the Santa Barbara Eco Hotel is excellent as is there sister property, The White House, were we enjoyed a spectacular sunset and dinner one night. Your selection of this company “Singular Resorts” is a very good choice.We have been using Intura Travel / Walk Inn Provence since 2014 and will use you again in the future. I have recommended you to family and friends and will continue to do so. You have excellent information and support for travelers.Fantastic trip to the Azores, it was a highlight of our vacation to Portugal."
Lost in the Atlantic ocean, off the coast of Portugal, the Azores are probably Europe's best kept secret. Far away from the crowds of tourists, these small islands are just the prefect place to unwind and to forget the hustle and bustle of daily life. If this is your first trip to the archipelago then Sao Miguel is a great place to start: varied and easy hiking and unspoiled landscapes and always a volcanic beach or rocky pool to enjoy a refreshing dip!
