1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star Comfortable Home With a Great View. 26 Jul 2014
Our stay in this home overlooking Furnas Lake far exceeded our expectations. We were greeted and made to feel very welcome. She explained the history of the home (it's been in her family for years) and gave us suggestions about places to visit while in the area. The home was clean and comfortable and the view from the front room was spectacular! The kitchen was fully equipped and we ate most of our meals at home. There are no neighbors close by, so we had a lot of privacy; it was quiet and peaceful. The house is a five minute drive to the town of Furnas, where we shopped for groceries and visited both Parque Terra Nostra and Poca da Dona Beija.
Stayed with family - Recommended to friends and family

Web Directories - Our Competitors

  • A lot of your time is wasted filling out forms and waiting for replies from multiple vacation rental owners. Many busy owners never reply.
  • The price shown always changes, you have to calculate it yourself and often changes once you communicate with the owner.
  • Most owners do not take the time to provide complete information on listings, so you waste time having to ask questions and wait for responses.
  • In a nutshell, "Web Directories" are cumbersome and time consuming, and if you have a problem, you are on your own.

The house location presents a unique and stunning view of the lake, and the valley of Furnas. It is located on the top of a densely forested mountain inside a 200.000 sq m private property belonging to the owners ancestors for generations. The house was built in the late 60s, as a holiday home for the owners family, and has been recently renovated.

The Furnas lake, surrounded by a beautiful flowered shore inspires moments of tranquillity and romance. In the lake surroundings there are many walking tracks offering a very close contact with wild nature.
The area of the Caldeiras (Hot Springs) at the lake, serve as a natural kitchen. Cooking by burying pots of food in the earth is a tradition, providing a fantastic meal of mixed meats and vegetables Cozido (a form of New England boil), cod or caldeiradas DE peixe (fish bouillabaisse).

In the village of Furnas, the Caldeiras are more spectacular. Many openings in the earth sprout geysers of boiling hot water make Furnas one of the richest hydrologic regions in Europe.
There you can also find an exceptional 18th century park, with lakes, streams, bushes of colorful exotic flowers and century old trees of great botanical value and a lake-pool of thermal hot iron water.

7km away from the property you can find a famous 18 holes Golf course, one of the best in the country.
Ribeira Quente, a small fishing village, approx. 6km from Furnas, offers an excellent sand beach.
