The retreat: constructive exchanges and inspiration moments

Novovento, a peaceful place designed to make you feel relaxed

Located on the slopes of the Sete Cidades volcano, Novovento is a typical azorean stone house surrounded by a huge garden with sea view. The cottage has a capacity of 8 guests: large living room, open-plan kitchen, sunny veranda, wooden deck and BBQ… 24/7 high speed internet access.

At Novovento you will have all your time to focus on your subject: we have designed the space to let people relax in a warm ambiance and exchange with other participants. In the garden under the palm trees, in the Greenhouse in front of the sea or on the Terrace to enjoy the sunset… there are several options for each person to get inspired and become creative!

Discover the Azores and let you be bewitched

In addition to the Design sprint activities every day we suggest a different destination to discover. The black sand beach of Mosteiros, the volcano and rim of Sete Cidades, the hot springs of the Ferraria, the vapor fumaroles of Furnas, and the city of Ponta Delgada… All destinations more inspiring than others!
