The People

Hello, we are Thijs van Bokkem and Ebrina van der Bijl. With our son Boris, two cats and three chickens we live in one of the cosiest houses of Terceira. The first time we arrived to Terceira was in 2013 and it was love at first sight. Of all the places we travelled in our 30 something years we choose our ground in the middle of the ocean. We both have a history of divers chapters and experiences in farming, hospitality, marketing, creation and photography. Our heart lies also in participating in festivals, sharing our knowlegde of all sorts and travelling the word. Azores by Nature is one of the initiatives we passionately run. The reason that we do what we do is that we love to show you ‘our Terceira’, what we like here and what brings the magic for us. ENJOY!

AbbyVille and Pop-Up Camp

AbbyVille is a facilitated camping in the middle of a permaculture garden. The nostalgic romance of camping can be enjoyed in the easy way. Spacious cotton tents have been put up for you. Each accommodation is situated in a different corner of our garden. The land of Abbyville is situated in the traditional wine area of Biscoitos, with characteristic stone walls that mark the small plots. We came to Terceira to learn how nature works and how we can use that knowledge to grow our own food and take care for animals and trees. A traditional fruit orchard is combined with perma culture techniques. When you stay in AbbyVille you can see which permaculture techniques we apply and enjoy the fresh harvest when we have. From our garden camp we also rent out pop-camp, take-away camping gear. A logic addition to what we have to offer. Our drive to get people into the green heart of the island, in a convenient way, brought us to the concept.
