We stayed here in June 2013. The place is absolutely stunning and the gardens are beautifully maintained. The bungalows are beautifully clean, with a basic kitchen, lounge, bathroom and bedroom. We borrowed an internet cable, which allowed us to use our laptop. The owners were extremely helpful and welcoming. There is a small pool, which was very cold for adults, but the temperature didn't deter our 8 year old boy from using it everyday! As we were leaving they had installed a solar heating system into the pool, which I'm sure will make a big difference. The villas are very close to Furnas village, which has small supermarkets and restaurants to choose from and the owners gave us excellent recommendations upon our arrival. Our car hire, whale watching and swimming with dolphins were also organised by the owners, which made everything very easy for us. The whale watching and dolphin trips were amazing and I can't express how wonderful it was to be in such close proximity to such beautiful creatures. We saw Fin whales and swam with Common dolphins.
I would highly recommend staying here, for families and couples alike.
