  • Description


    Hello travellers , I'm Nestor born 1980 in Spain, as soon as I set foot on the magical Azorean island of Santa Maria, I wanted everyone know it and the idea for my project was born. We created a place where real happiness can be shared: our own small piece of paradise.

    We are in 2 hectares in a geodesic position, high on the hill, offers one of the most spectacular views of the entire island, its coast and the ocean beyond.
    We are building our small eco-vila and recopering the traditional house from Santa Maria, both are eco-builds in harmony with the natural surroundings of spot.
