    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    On this smal and very quiet island, travellers have opportunity to experience how most people live here on the island. The Azoreans are very open-minded and there are always opportunities to get to know their way of life. You can accompany us to regional events.

    It would be much appreciated to host someone who likes gardening to help me. Most of the work is to keep the space clean, weeding, cutting plants or also some trees for some hours per day . Sometimes are also some things arround the house to do. The time is very flexible and you'll have plenty of time to explore the island.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You can see a great starry sky from the terrace.
    If you want to immerse yourself in peace and be removed from the confusion of city life, our home is suitable for you. We live like most people here on the island, meaning our home and lifestyle is simple and uncomplicated.
    Here, you'll likely see cows walking the streets, listen to birds sing from an open window, and watch as time moves slowly.
    Santa Maria has beautiful beaches, natural pools and a beautiful landscape, ideal for hiking.
    The bus stop is about 5 minutes walk or less away. And you can always come along when I have something to do on the island. Here it is really peaceful and always possible to hitchhike.
