Charming house and excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

We have had a fabulous time in a former priest house in Furnas which was charming renovated for holidays. Especially having breakfast und dinner in the beautiful garden was a highlight every day. The kitchen was equipped with all you need for cooking and baking. Jorge and Alexandra were excellent hosts with a lot of helpful recommendations. We will come back again but before we recommend the house to our friends.

Un sitio perfecto para vacaciones en São Miguel

  • 5 of 5

He estado dos veces en esta casa y no puedo decir nada negativo ni del alojamiento ni de sus dueños, que son encantadores.

La casa es tal y como aparece en las fotos. Está justo al lado de la iglesia vieja del pueblo de Furnas. Tres de sus fachadas dan a una plaza y la otra, a un gran jardín. La zona es muy tranquila y no se oyen ruidos por la noche (ni por el día) que impidan dormir.

Por dentro es muy espaciosa y, sobre todo, extremadamente limpia. Sus dueños han hecho una reforma conservando todo lo que han podido los elementos antiguos del edificio, pero sin renunciar a las comodidades actuales. Tiene tres dormitorios, un baño, una cocina, un salón y un comedor. Cruzando el jardín hay un anexo con otro baño, el cuarto lavadero y un cuartito con biciccletas, cosas de gimnasia, utensilios de playa...

Las fotos reflejan fielmente cómo es la casa (no están trucadas(.

En definitiva: he ido dos veces a São Miguel, en ambas me he alojado en La Casa da Igreja Velha y, si voy una tercera, me pienso quedar en el mismo sitio.

CASA DA IGREJA VELHA is a beautiful house, very well equipped and in a lovely setting. The garden is magnificent and perfect for children. The owners have thought of everything and provided us with a wealth of information and recommendations on things to do and see. We would certainly recommend it and would like to return ourselves.

We stayed at Casa da Igreja Velha over the Easter holiday. It is a stylish old house, beautifully maintained in a picturesque part of Furnas. There is plenty of room in the house and a beautiful garden to the rear. We received a very warm and hospitable welcome from our hosts, and they were very helpful during our stay.

This is one of the nicest houses we have ever stayed in.

Férias relaxantes na Ilha Verde!

  • 5 of 5

Gostámos muito de estar alojados neste Turismo Rural. Esta casa, típica da Vila da Furnas, foi recuperada e decorada com muito bom gosto. Achámos as instalações muito cómodas. Tendo viajado a S. Miguel ainda no Inverno, deparámo-nos com uma casa muita acolhedora, com aquecimento nas zonas comuns e quartos, e uma salamandra cujo crepitar foi um bom companheiro de serões! Como demos indicações de que viajávamos com uma criança de 19 meses, foram providenciados berço e utensílios necessários ao seu cuidado, que muito facilitaram a nossa viajem. A localização da casa é muito próxima das atrações turísticas das Furnas e dos pontos de comércio. É sem reservas que recomendo a estadia na Casa da Igreja Velha!

We could not asked for anything more perfect

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic. we stay one week and we could not have asked for anything more perfect. We enjoyed Furnas and also appreciate all the suggestions on place to go on the island. The batting polls were great fun along with the park. The private garden of the house it is a must. A really good time.
