When you ask people about the Azores they often respond with, ” what where is that? Unless that is you are talking to a yachtsmen who will know the islands well both historically and in the present day as a heaven for vessels crossing the Atlantic Ocean.
Steeped in history this nine island archipelago are known for their beauty and charm. It is the aim of this website to show what is hidden in the folds of this society that can give the passing yachtsmen and tourist the full benefit of their stay. Also residents who have come to retire reside and be part of that wonderful culture found on these jewels of the Atlantic.
Based in Horta Faial the website deals primarily with this island Faial.
By way of my own introduction you may like to read the story about Sean Paton. A seaman and now resident of the island who founded this site.
