Retiro Atlântico

Within the family for five generations the land where our glamping is located was abandoned for a long period of time. The eucalyptus trees and the bush ruled up until 2012, when Hugo decided to come here after earning his degree in Guides of Nature. Step by step, rock by rock he created a farm together with his father. In 2018 we started the construction of our glamping and in 2019 we opened the doors to our little paradise.

Our glamping is located on the Island of São Jorge, Azores. It is constituted by 4 yurts, each one with its private bathroom, a communal kitchen, a main house and a certified organic farm.

Let me tell you a bit more about us. Hugo received a degree in Guides of Nature and is a permaculture enthusiast. His passion for plants motivated him to build and develop our farm. Natacha received a degree in Social and Cultural Communication and earned a Master´s Degree in Women´s Studies. In 2012 she followed her heart and moved to the Island of São Jorge. She is a health coach, yoga instructor and author of the book Back to Natural. We are waiting for you!

I had a really good time at Retiro Atlântico. The work is easy and as described. The only way to get around the island is by car or hitchhiking. For me it was the first time hitchhiking and I had no problems. If you love nature and enjoy camping this is the perfect place for you :)
