Furnas is like paradise on earth. You should not leave Sao Miguel without spending some time in this magnificent village and I would highly recommend Casa Das Furnas as the place to stay.
When choosing accommodations I have three main goals: clean, comfortable and good location. Casa Das Furnas exceeded all my expectations. It was more beautiful than I imagined. It is clean, bright (stunning views from the large windows), comfortable, spacious and tastefully decorated. I could go on and on about the beauty of this place. There was more than enough room for my family of 4 and the two bathrooms was a bonus! The kitchen is fully equipped and even has an espresso machine and a bbq for grilling outside.
Casa Das Furnas is in an excellent location. It is within walking distance to restaurants, markets, bakeries, thermal pools geysers, etc. During our stay there was a man on the corner of the street selling corn which was boiled in the ground. The best corn we have ever had!
Every morning we would enjoy breakfast and an espresso on the deck at Casa Das Furnas, while listening to the sound of the creek and the birds and admiring the beautiful garden and picturesque views. At the end of a long day of site seeing we would sit on the beautiful deck and relax with a glass of wine and then go next door for a dip in the natural hot pools.
The host of Casa Das Furnas was very helpful, and knowledgeable of the area, recommending sites to see and beaches to go to and responded quickly to any questions we had.
I would highly recommend Casa Das Furnas. Furnas is a must see and Casa Das Furnas is a must stay. It couldn't get any better than this! We will be back!!!
