Where our Azores vacation home is located
Sao Bras is a small town, located on the northern part of the island.
It is easily accessible to many local attractions such as Lagoa de S. Bras
and the “Tea Factories“ of Gorreana and Porto Formoso (within walking distance).
The nearest beach is just 3km away (Praia dos Moinhos).
Furnas, a town known
for its hot springs, is just ten minutes away, providing
golf, beautiful gardens and restaurants. Vila Franca is
another town (20 minutes away) featuring many attractions
such as a fishing port, several beaches and a water park.
It is likely best-known for the Ilheu, a small island just
off the coast. Ribeira Grande, the second-largest city
on the island, offers shopping, natural swimming pools
and historical architecture.
Also close by is Lagoa do Fogo, a crater-lake with beautiful
vistas. While you’re there, be sure not to miss Caldeira
Vellha. Beside one of the oldest hot springs on the island,
you’ll find a natural waterfall heated by the same geothermal
energy that powers much of the island.
