Our VIP clients just returned back from Azores. Here are just some highlights from their family vacation.
"We had a wonderful time, really enjoyed the Azores. We were happy with everything. The apartment we rented on our own I also recommend. You can book with him directly from his website for any of your future clients. It was a nice location, great apartment and garden and he was very attentive to any of our needs. Supermarket only 5 min drive and full kitchen. The garden was the best party. https://epicenter.pt/
The Charming Blue hotel was very nice on Santa Maria. Flights between islands very simple.
The WhaleBay apartments were also a great option, we could have stayed there longer. Nice apartments and kitchen and property.
Definitely need a car on both islands.
Overall we had a wonderful trip. Very nature oriented and laid back. Definitely not for anyone that is looking for a "beach vacation" since beaches don't have many amenities and are mostly volcanic rock/sand. More hiking adventure touring.
The whale and dolphin tours worked out great."
