Island Advise

Hello,

I am planning a trip to Azores in mid September and was hoping for some advise. We have 5 days on the islands and are looking for a relaxing trip where we can hike and just be around nature during the day. At night, although we don't expect a nightlife we do want to go out for dinner and enjoy the local town. Which of the islands would you recommend, and what area?

I was thinking of Sao Miguel and perhaps staying at Terra Nostra Gardens in Furness but not sure what the location is like in terms of restaurants.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

With only 5 days São Miguel is your choice, in what it concerns the hotel and the location (Furnas), you'll have restaurants there (less than in Ponta Delgada...). if you have a car you can also go and try the restaurants at Lagoa and Vila Franca do Campo for instance.
