A week in the Azores over Christmas from the UK

Jump to last reply

I am American, my husband is British; we live outside of London. We are in our 50s.

My husband recently read something about the Azores in The Guardian and now he's talking about us going out there during the week of Christmas.

He doesn't like queues or crowds and I think the idea of a relaxing week in a unique place appeals to him. I'm a bit concerned that he'll get bored, however. While we like the beauty of nature, we are not into hiking or anything like that.

1) Based on the above - and considering that we'd want a location with the best weather (I understand that it can be quite different from island to island) - which island(s) would be best to research with regard on where to base ourselves?

2. Since we're not into hiking, what other activities would be available during the Xmas hols? Whilst we'd be there mainly to relax, we'd obviously want to soak up the culture.



Thank you!
