In the glass-walled yoga room at Lava Homes, sun salutations can be performed looking out to the Atlantic and São Jorge. High on a hillside, the 14 clean-lined cottages of glass and volcanic rock, with kitchens and working fireplaces, give the impression of floating above the sea.
The Azores Wine Company, Pico
The prices of Pico’s wines have been raised to a level similar to that of Napa Valley, Burgundy and Champagne by this project. It has also helped to revive ancient grape varieties, recovering some 100 hectares of virtually extinct vines such as Terrantez do Pico, with a winery and guesthouse set to open this year.
