Europe's best kept secret?

Vicky Power has one of the best experiences of her life in the little known islands of the Azores...

"You're going where?" was the inevitable response I received when I told friends about my upcoming holiday in the Azores. The Portuguese islands seem to be one of Europe's biggest secrets. Nine hundred miles off the coast of Portugal, they're definitely off the beaten path, but what most tourists obviously haven't cottoned on to is the fact they're only a four-hour, reasonably priced plane trip from Gatwick, so they're as easy to get to as a package holiday destination but with a heck of a lot more culture and nature to offer.
