Food Forest

Happy Nature  







id you know that with the diversity of fruits in the world you could eat a different one every day for the rest of your life?

In our food forest you find a collection of rare tropical fruit trees, the biggest in the Azores!

Let yourself be involved by this biodiversity while Hugo explains a bit about each tree. If you are lucky you might even taste a different fruit!

On our organic farm you can also find vegetables, aromatic and medicinal herbs.

This project started in 2012 when Hugo, together with his father, transformed what was once a land of eucalyptus trees and bush  into an organic farm based on permaculture principles.

Our farm started the certification process in 2014 and is now a Certiplanet certified organic farm.

The farm is an “oasis” of good energy, freshness, good agricultural practices, where I like to go, especially after a day of work, to breathe the aromas of the earth and all the diversity of plants there.
The vegetables and fruits from the farm taste so well, especially strawberries, raspberries and figs, my favorites! ☺️
Thank you to Hugo and Natacha for their work!! Best wishes

Retiro Atlântico´s location is excellent, with stunning views of the sea and Pico Mountain. When visiting the farm we were very impressed with the diversity of plants from around the world that grow there and how good it was to be able to taste the delicious exotic fruits that Natacha and Hugo gave us to taste. A fantastic experience! We are looking forward to returning and this time staying in the yurts!
