Ecotourism, top gastronomy, whales and bird watching, trials & boat tours. Biking and hiking, water sports. An endless adventure. Welcome back to Portugal.

We bring good news. From December 2016 on, Ryanair has started flying to this destination with offers at the price of 19.99. This time Lages at Ilha Terceira and Lisbon (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays) and to Porto (Tuesdays and Saturdays). We glad to count 1.000.000 Tourism visit last year. Fortunately and with so much to offer the Azores is finally competing with wonderful Madeira. For fans of sports, both islands have amazing international events all year round. Because we care about communities and don’t want to leave tourism behind we say “CHEERS AZORES”.

We remain to make efforts and hoping to see Ryanair, Easyjet or Transavia flying direct from Lisbon or Porto to ‘The Golden Island’. It’s already time to take the best of Portugal by offering this amazing ECO destination all year round.

The island archipelago of the Azores in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean is a natural unique on our planet. The incredible beauty of the volcanic islands Pico and Faial, colorful flowers and a breathtaking impressive wildlife form a real paradise.

There are many fantastic places on Earth and Bath-Somerset-England is for sure one of them. A perfect destination for shopping at Milsom street and a gracious Georgian city. Take the chance to visit  Jane’s Austen Museum. During the eight years she lived here, Jane Austen wrote Mansfield Park, Emma, and Persuasion, and revised Sense and Sensibility and Northanger Abbey. The historic seaside evokes the world of the most flawless of Regency novelists. The Roman Bath Spa for relaxation. The hot, mineral-rich water was the reason for Bath’s popularity. The Royal Crescent and Circus. Take the best of life and travel to Bath Somerset

By the way, if you want to eat well do not look further: Martini Restaurant is the place (Italian cuisine made by great Italian professionals). Bath is a shopper’s dream and many streets are pedestrianized and in addition to the West country’s widest range of high-quality shops running from Milsom Street down to Southgate. Bath also has an expensive network of intriguing arcades and a daily antique market. Bath is the most beautiful city in the U.K. where I had the chance to live for nearly two years.
