“Idyllic hotel with amazing panorama over the valley”
Reviewed August 2, 2009

Me and my wife stayed at Vista do Vale for 3 nights in June 2009. The village was not too crowded that time. We got really friendly and personal service. We had a double room with a balcony. The panoramic evening view from there over the village and valley was truly therapeutic. I've travelled in over 40 countries, so I've seen quite a few accommodations. Vista do Vale and Furnas is a good base to explore that part of the island. You can see and feel the peaceful rhythm of those local people. Hotel served continental breakfast and there was a roomy restaurant and bar. The price per night was very moderate. We warmly recommend!

Furnas on São Miguel is a magical place with the most beautiful surrounding scenery. [The highlights are the walk round the nearby crater lake and a visit to the superb Terra Nostra botanic garden - non-residents of the Terra Nostra Hotel are welcome at the garden (admission 4 Euros)]. The Forestry Post gardens should also be included in a spring visit to see the fish farm and the amazing pond full of loudly croaking frogs (fortunately not audible from the hotel!).

On finding that the Terra Nostra hotel was booked up, the two of us checked in at the Residencial Vista do Vale (Rua da Palha 9675 042 Furnas) for two nights in April 2005 at the excellent low season (possibly discounted) rate of 40 Euros per twin room per night, including breakfast. (No other meals are served.) The second floor room was spacious, with two comfortable chairs, a writing desk with stool and the usual built-in wardrobes and a faultless bathroom with very hot water. There was a balcony with table and chairs and a wonderful view over the town and surrounding wooded crater. The hotel is in fact within a few minutes walk of the town centre - not on an inaccessible height as the name might cause one to fear, but certainly profoundly peaceful.

Breakfast was continental but generous, with fresh toast. The Vista do Vale does not accept credit cards. We did not use the heater supplied in the room, so we cannot comment on whether the early morning chill there or in the breakfast room could have been dispelled - it was not cold enough to bother us much. Our beds were warm.

The polite and friendly manager, who supplied a town map and helped with bus timetables, made this a perfect stay at an outstandingly good price.
