    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    A good place to engage with natural medicines (plants, fungi, etc), learn about the flora on this island, read, meditate, nature walks, yoga, visit volcanoes and other tourist attractions.

  • Help


    Challenging gardening and maintenance on the steep slopes of a volcano. Plenty of outdoor tasks, but also indoor infrastructure maintenance. Much of it is weather dependant - the Azores winters can be tough! And summers can be paradise!
