April 28 - May 5, 2018
The french guest house of Archipels in the seaside village of Faial de Terra will be our home for our six night retreat. We chose this village so we could experience life in the Azores as it is in this small quiet fishing village and step away from the hectic pace of daily life.
Breakfast and dinners will be provided with organic vegetables from Anne’s garden and fresh local fish. Anne’s garden offers a bounty of more than 20 cultivated and wild plants for salad. Anne’s garden is an adventure all on its own. We will enjoy lunches and picnics in surrounding towns.
We will begin our day with meditation and vinyasa flow yoga and end our day with a restorative practice. Classes will focus on balancing and rejuvenating your mind, body and spirit. Suitable for all levels of experience.
Midday we will explore the unique hiking trails, some of which are around the corner from our guest house, to see the breathtaking views of this island. We will take day trips to explore the magnificent Lagoa do Fogo (Lagoon of Fire); Mineral baths and Terra Nostra Gardens in Furnas, as well as picnic at Sete Cidades (the green and blue lagoon). There will be plenty of time to wander, reflect and unwind.
Optional tours: The Tea Plantation; Family-owned Cerimica Viera for local Pottery; Pineapple plantation; Ponta da Ferraria to enjoy spa bathing in therapeutic water springs that have been used since the fifteenth century; Canyoneering; Swim with the Dolphins; paper making workshop with Anne.
