Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Casa do Agrião is located between Furnas and Povoação, in the heart of a typical azorean forest. It is one of the most private and silent refuges you can find in the islands and is served by a stunning looking pool carved in the rock.

The space
Casa do Agrião is truly a gem for quietness seekers. In order to get there you need to get out the main road that connects Furnas to Povação and take a dirt road for about 3,5 km, going down the cryptomeria covered hills. It will take you between 10 and 15 minutes to do it. The house is located in a cute little valley, surrounded by trees and overlooking the ocean. Because it is so secluded, there is no public electrical grid serving the house. Solar panels are used to give electricity to the building so it is possible to lighten it at night. There is no TV, WIFI or video games. For some people it may be a dull place. We think it is a perfect place to reconnect to nature and recharge batteries. We love it this way.

Guest access
You will have access to two different
properties that belong to the same owner: the Mountain property where this house is; and the Sea property, where the pool is. The properties are connected by a walking trail and it will take you less than 10 minutes to get from one to the other. From the house to the pool it will take you between 15 and 20 minutes.

What we love most in this Mountain property is the silence and peace it emanates. The only thing you can hear is bird songs.. It is a perfect place for hiking, birdwatching, sightseeing or even building a tree house, if you like. It is a forest. With no wild animals.
In nearby village of Ribeira Quente, you can hit the surf in Praia do Fogo or have a great meal at restaurant "Ponta do Garajau".
In Furnas you can visit the beautiful Terra Nostra garden, eat a "Cozido" made in a geothermal heated hole close to Lagoa das Furnas and take a nice hot bath at "Poça da Beija".

Hi there! I'm Francisco, I'm 33 years old and I live in the beautiful islands of the Azores. I think one of my biggest traits is being curious. Probably because of that I have lived, studied and worked in Portugal mainland, Spain, France, Finland and Brazil. I have backpacked Southeast Asia, traveled around Europe and explored a bit of South America. This travel experience helped me understand the true value of hospitality. Having been an assistant general manager at a hotel also helped a bit. I am really passionate about books, music and movies. I write scripts and screenplays for advertising companies and I have a comedy music project called Balada Brassado. All in all I love to share my island with easygoing and creative people.
