Furnas Accommodations

The town of Furnas is located on the island of Sao Miguel in the Portuguese Azores. Located in the Atlantic Ocean west of Lisbon, Portugal, vacation rentals here give you an island holiday well removed from the crowds of other destinations. Here you can find a variety of vacation rental accommodations from apartment rentals and condo rentals to private villas. There are regular flights from Lisbon to Sao Miguel’s João Paulo II Airport. You can rent a car there and make the 45-minute drive along the southern coast road to your villa rental in Furnas.

Condo rentals and villa rentals in Furnas are located in the crater of an active volcano, though the last eruption was almost 400 years ago. The intense thermal activity of the island makes a trip to the thermal pool in Terra Nostra Botanical Garden a must for visitors with lodging in Furnas. Your apartment rental or condo rental is only minutes from this highlight of the island. The muddy brown of the water is from the high iron content. Make sure to bring an old swimsuit for your thermal bath. The iron tends to colour everything that it touches, including your skin. It will come off easily in the showers provided at the park, or wait until you return to your accommodation.

The Caldeiras of Furnas are another fascinating geological site near your vacation rental. Geysers of boiling hot water burst from many openings in the earth. These hot springs serve as a natural kitchen where pots of food are cooked in the traditional manner by burying them in the earth where the food is cooked by geothermal heat. If you don’t feel like cooking at your apartment rental, try the results of this unusual cooking method at one of the wonderful restaurants in Furnas. Condo rental and villa rental visitors should try the traditional Cozido, a rich meat and vegetable stew, or the Caldeiradas de Peixe, a fish bouillabaisse.

From villa rentals in Furnas you can make trips to a number of wonderful places on Sao Miguel. Fifteen minutes north is Cha Gorreana, Europe’s only tea plantation. Premium tea has been grown at this family owned and operated plantation since 1883. Make the trip from your accommodation and learn how the tea has been produced in the same way since the plantation was established. You can try their different varieties and bring your favourites back to your condo rentals.

Furnas vacation rentals are in the pefect location to explore Sao Miguel. To the south you can find some lovely sandy beaches that are excellent for swimming and surfing. To the west is Lagoa do Fogo, a beautiful crater lake in a nature preserve that provides spectacular views and excellent hiking. Travelling around the coast east from your accommodations brings you to Nordeste where you can visit Pico da Vara. Golfers with Furnas apartment rentals can choose between two golf courses. The breathtaking landscape surrounding the courses adds a special touch to your day on the greens.

Furnas News and Events

Furnas, Azores Islands
www.azores-islands.info/uk/places/sao-miguel/furnas.html

Another one of São Miguel's outstanding visitors' attractions is the landscape of Furnas, comprising a lake, a valley and a village, located inland from the south-eastern coast. The especially during the summer much visited village of Furnas has a splendid botanical garden, the Terra Nostra Park, founded in the 18th century by the then American Consul Thomas Hickling. It features magnificent centenary trees, an exuberant vegetation from all over the world, small ponds, meandering paths and a pool with therapeutic warm and muddy waters. For passionate golfers, the village of Furnas also offers a beautiful golf course. Yet, Furnas won its fame primarily from its 22 sources, consisting of mineral, sulphurous and mud sources that can be found here. Since 1630 when a powerful eruption took place, this region boasts an amazing variety of volcanic activity, among which also hot geysers (the hottest, Pêro Botelho, reaching 99°C). The thermal sources are reputed for their therapeutic qualities in the treatment of all kind of respiratory-related illnesses known up to date. The different sources can be used in balneotherapies as well as mineral water cures. Furnas Valley is crossed by two torrents, one is cold and one is warm and iron-bearing, and is considered one of Europe's richest hydrological regions.

The 2 km long Lagoa de Furnas is a paradisiacal refuge, where the Gothic profile of the Chapel Nossa Senhora das Victórias beautifully reflects on its calm and clear waters. It has a small sandy beach, provided with a bar and pedal boats, which you can rent during summertime. Here, you will also find fumeroles, but they are less impressive – even if their odour is as strong – than those of the village. This is also the place with the 'natural kitchens' where the famous 'cozido', one of the most popular dishes of the Azores, is cooked for several hours buried in the ground, with all ingredients thrown together in a pot, which is closed hermetically. Not only a tourist attraction, this is a popular Sunday lunch tradition to come out here with the whole family and cook the 'cozido' and enjoy this tasty dish in these magnificent surroundings.
