Why Paulo Franco chose Sao Miguel Island

This property is used by our family since 1985, we used to rent it for summer holidays, in 1999 my parents decided to buy it, in 2005 it was very degraded when we decided to renew it. The new architecture project granted a new look to the house while respecting the context of the house.

What makes this house unique

Large glazed areas, can assure a bright house a great views to the water stream and the surrounding mountains. Either from the balcony or the terrace you can have your breakfast enjoying the surroundings.

Lovely house in a lovely location

  • 4 of 5

The Furnas Valley is one of the best places to stay on Sao Miguel to get a sense of the whole island. It's lush, green, peaceful, and offers plenty of great walking, plus proximity to all other parts of the island. The thermal baths right next door (you only need a sarong, flip flops and your 3 euros) is so convenient and the sound of the rushing stream is soothing. The garden and decks are also very pleasant and we only wished we were there in a warmer month to take advantage of the setting fully. The house as well is very well-equipped and solid. The bed is extremely comfortable. Two small changes would make this perfect accommodation: a more comfortable couch (what's there is outdoor furniture) and a reading lamp for the couch. We will definitely be back! We are on our fourth week in Portugal and loved the Furnas Valley the most. If you like the outdoors, nature and hiking, this is the destination for you.

Owner's Response: Hi Evgeniia, we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We understand that for some people the sound of the water stream is not so relaxing as for others. Although the windows are double glazed, you can always hear the sound of the water on the silent of the night.

What a great find!

  • 5 of 5

Casa das Furnas is the ideal place to stay, in the ideal little village on Sao Miguel. We loved our stay, the location, the people and especially the apartment itself. Two bathrooms made the accomodations easy for the four of us, and the apartment is modern, well appointed and above all clean and well maintained.

It is located right next door to the Poca da Beija spa where you can soak in volcanic pools from 7 am to 11pm. Despite being so close, the spa does not disrupt the tranquil nature of the location.

A small grocery store is across the street and several restaurants are dotted through the village...offering food at just about every price level.

Above all, we loved the lush greenery and the birds that come and visit.

A great place to stay and we intend to return as soon as possible.

Casa Das Furnas exceeded all our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

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!!!
