“Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

Furnas is an excellent choice for your stay in the Azores. If you like quiet little towns and rolling hills then this is the place for you. We found the people engaging, friendly, warm, and helpful. If and when I get the chance to go back to Azores I will be staying again in Furnas. It's really quite central to most things. We had a car and found it quite easy to get around the whole island from this vantage point. Plus it's just so beautiful there. Love the little castle up on the hills. Great lookout point.

Spent a lovely day touring Furnas. Enjoyed a swim in the hot springs, and help lift the pot out of the pit! Enjoyed a fabulous lunch in a local restaurant. A must see!!

“Fun place to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

Great town to visit. Hot springs, downside houses, Terra Nostra, waterfalls, beautiful sites and more. There is a fee of 5 euro to go into the Terra Nostra Garden Park, but it's worth it. You can rent a towel for 2 euro at the entrance. Beautiful garden and you can swim in the "calderias" it's warm and healing. Don't bring a nice swimsuit...it can stain. There are changing rooms and showers for after. Stop in one of the restaurants (we went to Tony's) for the cozido meal that was cooked in the ground. What a fun experience!
