Why Paulo Franco chose Furnas

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.

completely lovely

  • 4 of 5

Being high above the road and activity was so relaxing. Looking out over the rooftops to the surrounding green hills was thrilling as well. We enjoyed our short walks around town. This is really a perfect location. Our stay was 5 nights and 1 more would have allowed another exploration out of town in another direction. The thermal baths were a first for us and though we were not sure, we loved them.

Beautiful house in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Paulo's house in February half term and the choice of place in Azores could not have been better. The house is very beautiful and modern, and has everything you'd need, there were even robes and towels for the hot springs. The location of the house is perfect, particularly if you're not after a beach holiday (though the beach is only a few minutes drives from the house). We did lots of walks from the house, and enjoyed the hot springs, literally 20 metres from the house, almost every day. Paulo was our ideal host as well, always there from the start of our booking but never in our way. We will surely recommend the house and Azores to anyone!

Excellent get away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Furnas for three days in Dec. This house is on the outskirts of the town center, next to one of the thermal baths. (We walked over in our bathing suits and robes the owners provided with the house.) It's a quite location, and the house was clean and comfortable. There's a lovely patio that would be an added bonus in the warmer months. The owner, Maria, met us on arrival and came bearing bolos and fruit from her yard. She couldn't have been more gracious or helpful. Overall, it was a good base to explore Furnas and environs.

Lovely property in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The drive up to Furnas is probably one of the prettiest drives in the world, and sets you up for a great stay. This villa is located in Furnas, with the main bathing area on your doorstep (literally). There are bars, restaurants, beautiful park areas, and calderas all within easy walking distance. The villa is well appointed, with comfortable beds, and all the other facilities listed. We were met by the owner on arrival, who was able to answer any queries. We toured the island during our stay, and we all agreed Furnas was the best location to be based from, it's a lovely quiet spot, and very picturesque. Parking is limited, but you'll get nearby (even in the height of summer). Villa was clean and tidy, with everything we needed. We would definitely come back.

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 4 nights at the house in Furnas. The location is the best right at the poco don beja hot spring. We started our morning there and ended our evening. The house is well equipped with a dark towels for the springs , 2 house coats, kitchen was well stacked ( does need more coat hangers for hanging clothes) and the tv was really small and couldn't get USB to work on it but we didn't have anytime to watch tv anyway. Hosts met us at the house and explained everything thoroughly. He gave several suggestions for food, and left us with some fresh bolos levados and jam. Would recommend this place to anyone! Truly unique.

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.
