“An stunning property in an amazing setting”
Reviewed August 29, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Sao Miguel is an amazing island with so many stunningly beautiful surprises all over it, and this property is one of them. One highlight of our 2 weeks was staying here.

The house is amazing, it's huge with plenty of room for the kids to explore and hide in. The view from the bedroom window in the morning of the lake spreading out in front of you is just idyllic. Margarida and Fatima were so welcoming and went out their way to make our stay as great as possible, The house has everything you would need and more. The welcome pack was also a real treat.

Having canoes and bikes at the property for us to use were great, The kids spent most of the time on the canoes or swimming in the lake. The ride round the lake to see the caldeira was great. The gardens and chapel were also fantastic to explore and to have the keys to it was very special so we could explore it when everyone had left, including the stunning waterfall (well worth a visit). The location of the property was ideal also for us to explore the east side of the island.

This property is perfect for those wanting to do loads in and around Furnas lake and the island, but is also a prefect spot for those wanting a very relaxing holiday in a stunning location.

Really amazing property. Absolutely a real treat and an honour to have stayed there. When you see the property on postcards being sold around the island you know it's a special place.

“Idyllic location and wonderful welcome”
Reviewed August 12, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

It is a lovely house with lovely owners. Margarite could not have been more welcoming and we felt privileged to stay there.

The house is in a wonderful situation on the lake shore, and has a lovely homely feel internally. With canoes and bikes available for guests to borrow there is plenty to do around the lake, or one could just relax with a good book and enjoy the tranquillity. The walks through the forests and over the hills are great too.

The only word of warning is be prepared for the humidity - typically over 85%, and nothing dries despite the dehumidifiers provided. But don't let that put you off!

Spectacular vacation location. We had rented a car and were able to access the entire Island of Sao Miguel. Having this comfortable,quaint and magical accomodation was the perfect end to each day. Our accomodation included bikes and kayaks for investigating the beautiful surroundings. Sitting by the lake in the evening watching the steam rise from the Caldeiras and the fish jump from the lake was perfect. Lovely ktchen and neccesary ammenities are available. Our host Margarida, her husband and staff were incredibly gracious and helpful. Can't wait to visit Casa dos Barcos again!!!
