Wow, imagine an island with mild temperature all year long, green fields all over, uncrowded and a charm place for you to stay with Restaurant and possibility to cook your own meal. Sounds just like the most amazing retreat for winter or for remote working isn't it? It gets better: you can bring your dog along.
Plan your long-term escape to Portugal, more specifically the Azores archipelago, to São Jorge island and forget about Bali, Hawaii and other nature destinations that although are not comparable they can some-what be considered when planning a low season getaway.
Inspiration for creative minds can find ease and purpose here at Cabanas da Viscondessa when sights are to the pico mountain, to the forest or the mist of the clouds coming down the hill on foggy days.
Regular and regional airline Sata Azores (Azores Airline) transport pet friends without extra-cost. Train your dog to love the Dog Crate (follow some useful tips here) to transport him in the Airplane Hold or to keep him calm if transported in the cabin. Considering the luggage allowance of 23 kg per passenger if the dog crate and the dog weight doesn't surpass 23 kg no extra charge will be charged to the passenger (hand luggage is allowed).
