Fodor's Expert Review Furnas Lake Forest Living

Estrada Regional do Sul, 9675-090, Portugal Fodor's Choice

On the edge of lovely Lake Furnas, this collection of freestanding cedar villas standing on pillars on a reflective pond is set in a former cattle farm, and the mix of peaceful surroundings and contemporary Scandinavian decor attracts those looking for a quiet, nature-filled getaway. Rooms are light and airy, with wood floors and gray, white, and green accents, and come with kitchenettes. If you don’t want to cook, you can dine at the in-house restaurant, which serves Azorean dishes with their own beef as well as veggies and herbs straight from the hotel garden. Every room opens onto a communal grassy area where guests can relax and admire the views, or opt for a dip in the narrow saltwater pool. A two-night minimum stay is required during high season.
