“We could have done with an extra day at Terra Nostra in Furnas, maybe using it as a base for the walk in that corner of Sao Miguel.   Terra Nostra hotel (as you told us) was wonderfully relaxing, with excellent facilities – we loved the botanical gardens, our balcony, the camellias, and of course the thermal swimming. Service was friendly and unobtrusive, the public spaces were many and varied.  And the restaurant food was outstanding!” – Virginia Kelly Feb 2023

“The recommendation to go to Terra Nostra was absolutely spot on – the place is heavenly!” Sue Eve – October 2021
