São Tomé and Príncipe is a small archipelago hidden in Africa, unknown to most, comprising two tropical islands located on the equator, floating in the Gulf of Guinea off the coast of Gabon. As the second smallest country in Africa, it is a mysterious destination that has earned its nickname of the Eden of Africa. The nation is made up of two islands of volcanic origin covered with lush vegetation set amid the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean. São Tomé is the larger and more developed of the two islands. Príncipe is much smaller and is tucked away off the beaten track. The two islands each have their own unique appeal; it is interesting to spend a few nights in São Tomé to soak up the bustle of the city, before discovering the soothing calm of Príncipe. The cocoa and coffee plantations of São Tomé and Príncipe are no longer to present. Through the stories of Roças de São Tomé and Principe you will discover the organic cultivation of coffee, cocoa but also pepper and vanilla. Being a former Portuguese colony, São Tomé and Príncipe has a rich colonial history that deserves to be known. São Tomé and Príncipe is also known for its majestic flora, its unique fauna and its magnificent, almost deserted beaches. Its warm and smiling population allows travelers to have authentic encounters and to discover a real little paradise on earth.São Tomé and Príncipe offer everyone the opportunity to discover a dream destination.

Why travel to São Tomé and Príncipe?


São Tomé and Principe has the advantage of not yet being too affected by tourism, which gives it its authenticity. But what makes us love this country is the extraordinary beauty of the landscapes, the proximity of the mountains to the sea, the interesting monuments inherited from the colonial period and the great kindness of the inhabitants; their sense of celebration, an often refined and always extremely healthy Creole gastronomy, a Métis culture of profound originality with African and Iberian roots and above all “le vie leve-leve”.“Leve-Leve” is a local expression, in Portuguese it means “light-light”. In São tomé and in principle, it is used at any time.

The leve-leve attitude involves taking life on the safe side, not taking anything too seriously, being in a good mood and ready to laugh at everything, and above all, never stressing out. And you, what do you think of this philosophy? Are you interested in a holiday under the leve-leve?
