Can not say enough about the small, quaint, little town we stayed in, Faial Da Terra. The host, Paolo was the best and very accomodating to all our needs. The home was gorgeous, spacious and very private. I would only suggest to have a converter or two for electronics in the home for those visitors not familiar with the electricity. Thank you Paolo, from the bottom of our hearts! When he states he will meet you at the airport you will be glad he did :)
We did a lot of sightseeing across the island. Our favorites was the thermal pools and spa ...so relaxing. Restaurante Tony's was just yummy! Famous for their Volcano Cooked Stews BUT you can not beat their Bacon Wrapped Chicken Kabobs ... to die for!! Our favorite breakfast and bakery was in Provocao! A Pik Nik, Snack Bar, local food and great sweets!! Great Staff and very clean!!
The whole island is clean and everyone we came in contact with was pleasant!!
We shall return!!!
We loved Bruno's house and its location right in town. Bruno and his mother were so welcoming, showing us around the house when we arrived and suggesting restaurants. The book they have put together with recommendations for Furnas and many other places on Sao Miguel Island was amazing! We loved it! The house was great for two couples - each couple had a nice bedroom on the main floor and our own bathroom. There was lots of space for all of us. The kitchen had everything we needed, including some delicious bread, tea, and coffee that Bruno left for us, and sharp knives we were able to use to slice up the fresh pineapple we bought. The garden is just gorgeous - we wish we could have spent a whole day sitting out there. The fresh oranges off the tree were fantastic! The nice outdoor seating area and off-street parking are a great bonus. The TV room was great, even though we did not have time to watch TV since we were too busy sight-seeing around Furnas. The house is in a great location to walk around town. We highly recommend walking around Terra Nostra garden and trying the cozido at Tony's restaurant!
