Comfortable1 bed Apt (sleeps 2) a stones throw from the beach and all amenities.
I first visited Fuseta on holiday in 1992 and instantly fell in love with the portugues people, so generous, interesting and how they live a simple, stress free life. I was told by my the newly retired father, 'Don't wait until you are my age to make the move to Portugal, it's a wonderful life and should be enjoyed for as long as possible!' I'm so glad I took his advise as I have enjoyed 15 wonderful years here, have built up a business and it's all with the help of my Portuguese friends. Here's to a great holiday!
Jane purchased this Apartment in 2015

In short I would have no hesiitation in recomending this rental and returning for a second time, WELL DONE JANE IT WAS GREAT
A clean,comfortable & very well equipped apartment which is well maintained. Jane made us feel welcome. An enjoyable stay. The only negative was that none of the cafes or restaurants we used would accept payment by card. We found this to be strange to say the least!!
The Algarve region.
The Algarve is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Every year tourists in their thousands flock to the south of Portugal to soak up the sun and relax in this European paradise.
The Algarve is full of history and heritage. Still standing today are buildings and walls dating back to the Roman times. You are never far from a museum or guided tour to allow you to gain a more in depth insight into the evolution of this beautiful region.
The Algarve has the best all round climate in the whole of Europe and can boast more sunshine hours than California!
Average temperatures range from 16º-17º in January and February, 22º in October to 29º-30º or higher in August.
Temperatures never fall below zero.
With over 100 miles of beautiful cliff faces and extensive golden beaches, the Algarve offers one of the most dramatic coastlines in the world.
Visit the traditional Portuguese neighbouring towns and villages along the Algarve coastline. Direct access from the apartm to the "Ecovia", a cycling/walking track along the coast from Olhão all the way to the Spanish border, ideal for walkers, birdwatchers and cyclists.
FUZETA is a traditional Portuguese fishing village in the Ria Formosa in the Eastern Algarve.
The town which is located on the coast is known for its quaint cubed houses with their terraces and interesting chimneys and is a trademark of this part of the Algarve.
There is a newly renovated produce market situated on the quay which is open every morning, except Sundays, where you can buy all your fresh fish, meat, vegetables and fruit.
The fishermen go out early to catch the fish and is freshly sold at the local fish, meat and veg market. Choose what you want for lunch or dinner at one of the waterfront barbecues. My favourite is the BBQ mixed fish on the street at 'Casa de Corvo' or also known as “Rui’s”.
Fuzeta has the bonus of two beaches. The first is a small calm beach on the lagoon in the town itself and is literally only a 5 minute stroll. Available to rent are loungers and parasols. Enjoy a drink or snack at the beach café. Toilets and showers available.
The ocean beach is just across the lagoon on the Island of Armona and is easily reached by a short, cheap, frequent ferry ride. Sun loungers and parasols are available to rent at the cafes and in the summer there is music and dancing. The Ocean beach extends for miles so those seeking more peace and privacy can walk 10 minutes to have the beach almost to themselves. The taxi boats leave from the ferry point and will take you to any of the other islands further out. Check out the water sports, kite surfing and kayaking.
The square is the heart of Fuzeta and has many cafes selling tempting cakes and freshly cooked bread. There is a pizza bar, takeaways, many different restaurants for meat, fish and chicken or try one of the traditional Portuguese dishes. Smell the delicious chickens roasting on the BBQs on almost every street corner!
Fuzeta has a street market on the first Thursday of the month and a flea market on the second Sunday of the month.
Fuzeta has two train stations both within a 5 minute walk from the apartment. The single line runs along the coast and stops in most of the towns so if you are looking to visit the many charming and historical towns then it is very cheap and easy. Why not take the train to Villa Real San Antonio on the Spanish border or one of the popular towns on the west side.
OLHAO, Pronounced 'ol-ee-ow', the neighbouring town, is a busy traditional town with a gem of a waterfront and striking marina. Its fishing port is the most important in the Eastern Algarve and its fish market is the biggest.
Olhao also has many shops, restaurants and an entire summer festival devoted to sea food. The famous Sea Food festival takes place in August and includes live music.Ameijoas, the king of clams, is grown and eaten in abundance and is a 'must-try' entreé. It will be well worth a visit!Olhão is very Portuguese, very Algarvian and still un-touristic. The pedestrian shopping area winds in cobbled streets through the moorish-looking old town to the waterfront.
The markets are full of home grown fruit & veg as well as meat, deli and fish. The cafe's, bars and parks enjoy sparkling views out over the Ria Formosa lagoons.
From the pier, you can take a boat or ferry to the island villages and beaches of Armona, Culatra and Farol, all great day trips. Lots of information at hand here. The official visitor centre for the Ria Formosa nature reserve is just outside Olhão. Its worth a visit to see the restored tidal mill (of which there were once many in the Ria Formosa) and the bird life.
Olhao has a shopping mall (Ria shopping) with around 80 shops, a large supermarket, restaurants/bars and cinema. There is also kart racing in the underground car park here.
