Between the sea and the forest is Retiro Atlântico, the first glamping on the Island of São Jorge, Azores, with certified organic farming. Here you will find more than 2500 varieties of plants and a collection of rare tropical fruit trees.

Your stay is spent in the comfort of a yurt - circular tents traditionally used by Mongolian nomadic shepherds - where the rustic contrasts with the sophisticated. The private bathroom is located outside, a few meters from the tent. 

Retiro Atlântico is perfect for nature lovers, with a privileged view of the Pico mountain.
