Get a feel for the rustic way of life with this unique and enchanting experience on the glorious west coast of São Miguel Island.
Head to the picturesque village of Ginetes and meet the beautiful horses that will then pull your carriage on the scenic ride to the farm of Quinta das Raiadas.

Discover the traditions of country living through the ages as your friendly hosts explain all about farming in the Azores and show you how crops and tobacco were grown for centuries. Meet the working animals and, if you fancy getting hands-on, why not try milking the cows?

Having worked up an appetite, it’s time to follow your nose and step inside the Bread House where you can try your hand at kneading dough before it’s baked in the brick oven. Tuck into a snack of freshly baked loaves and homemade delicacies, best enjoyed along with provincial liqueurs to toast your experience.
