Rimi, Joao, and Luis were incredible hosts! We stayed at Quinta Minuvida for 3 nights and had a blast. We enjoyed a half day hike with Joao where we learned about the local plant life, geography, and politics, a great yoga session, and amazing breakfasts every morning featuring produce from the working onsite farm. There are also wonderful furry friends and we still miss Moo, Biscuit, and the black and white cat we named Socks. We had a suite with plenty of space and it was clean and well kept; parking was easy and the location was convenient to many of the popular attractions on Sao Miguel island.

We spent one week at Quinta Minuvida and it was really amazing! After the arrival we decided to stay 1 week on this beautiful place, instead of 3 days! Friendly staff, sweet dogs & cats, yoga studio, kitchen, barbecue area, beautiful garden, big swimming pool outside and my own Whirlpool in my bathroom! Lovely!

It's been a year since I was at Minuvida and I'm dreaming of being there now! Minuvida is so much more than a place to stay while exploring the Azores; the staff truly care about your experiences so that you connect with the island and leave feeling completely refreshed. My senses were enhanced, my aura was protected, and I left a more empowered version of myself. The food exceeds expectation, mostly grown on the beautiful property itself. My room featured a soaking bathroom, which was a delight. The yoga is healing and rejuvenating. The reiki is powerful and you won't want to miss the opportunity to experience the healing, restorative energy work Rimi is able to provide. The hikes to swimming holes, the coast, beautiful vistas, Rimi and Joao will guide you and you will be sure to find all the magic, without planning anything in advance. What a gift. Truly the best vacation I've ever had. Thank you Rimi and Joao!

Amazing hosts and property. Big rooms, amazing garden, and the best host we got in our trip. The location is amazing to visit the island by car since you are already halfway of every place. All safety procedures where taken.

I don’t can’t begin to describe this amazing place - book here now! The owners and the staff treat you like friends, they genuinely care for you and your experience in the Azores. The daily breakfast was a lovely treat, and time in the giant back garden was a highlight daily. Would highly recommend to solo travelers, couples or families that are looking for a personal and memorable base for their adventures.
