Pico do Refúgio
The farm consists of 50 acres, part of which are classified as ecological reserve. Taste our home made marmalade, produced from domestic fruit, enjoy the country side atmosphere by walking, bird watching (including bird houses) or simply relax by the pool.
Learn how to dive without leaving the site. Our school and dive center offers a service integrating lodging and underwater activities, which includes programs and instructors from P.A.D.I. (Professional Association of Diving Instructors).
Beyond the farm there are yet more open air activities to take part in, from whale watching to horseback riding. You won’t have trouble finding a way to exercise your self, so you can return at the end of the day with enough time to relax again.
For surfers, the location could not be better! It's just a five minutes drive away from Santa Barbara beach – Ribeira Grande, where the Billabong Azores Island Pro is held annually. .
