Excellent Apartment in Fuseta
This is a wonderful apartment; spacious with a long balcony, very well equipped and in the centre of Fuseta. Elizabete and Virgilio were very hospitable and had thought of everything, including providing a beach umbrella and beach towels. On arrival Elizabete showed us round the apartment and welcomed us with a bottle of wine, waters, and a selection of almond and fig specialities typical of the region. Elizabete suggested places we should visit and later in the week we went as their guests to the Fado Historia were Virgilio introduced a short history of Fado and then went on to introduce and play in a live performance.
The apartment is in a pedestrianised street which leads to restaurants at one end and the Mercado at the other. A short walk takes you past the fishing boats, the boat trips around the Ria Formosa and the ferry out to the beach on Ilha da Fuseta. Alternatively it is just a stroll to the town beach which is a beautiful stretch of sand where the water gently laps the shore.
Fuseta manages to retain its identity whilst welcoming visitors and is a good base to explore the eastern Algarve. We had a great time and were so impressed with Elizabete and Virgilio’s hospitality and the excellent quality of the apartment we look forward to returning to it in the future.
A warm welcome was received by the apartment owners. The accommodation was spotless and comfortable, with all necessary facilities and an excellent outside space. Location was great, close to all local amenities. We will certainly go back.
Excellent appartment, great location, great hosts
We have just returned from a lovely week in Fuseta. The apparment was very clean, had everything you needed and has an amazine terrace which gets the sun all day long. Elizabete and Virgilio greeted us upon arrival and we were able to get in to the appartment early, which was great as we had an early flight.
There was also a bottle of fizz in the fridge - lovely.
We stupidly left some English money in the Appartment and Elizabete went out of her way to transfer it back to us, thanks very much to you both.
Great appartment, great price, great location! We will be back

An excellent stay
We just agree with the previous reviews. This was the best equipped and cleanest apartment we ever saw. It just had a about everything we could ask for.
Martina has described the flat, the village and the owners so perfectly, that it is difficult to find other words to express the same. For someone who seeks a relaxed and quiet holiday but still appreciates a variety of restaurants this village and this accommodation are just perfect.
Thank you very much Virgilo, for also taking us to a Fado concert in Faro. We enjoyed that night out.
We certainly will come back next year.
Beautiful spacious apartment in friendly Fuseta
We had a very enjoyable week in Fuseta. This bright, modern, spacious & tastefully decorated new apartment was a delight to stay in with all modern conveniences, e.g. Coffee maker, washing machine & wi-fi. The kitchen was well equipped with everything that one would need for cooking. The apartment has a huge south facing balcony with beautiful views & was a lovely area to relax in the evenings or have breakfast in the morning sunshine. The apartment was spotlessly clean with plenty of towels & bed linen. The apartment is in excellent condition throughout.
The apartment is in an excellent location on a pedestrianised street. It is very secure. It is beside the market which sells fresh fruit/veg & fish. There are plenty of restaurants, cafés within a very short walk. There is a pharmacy, a small but well stocked grocery shop, a bank & bakery all within a 2 minute walk of the apartment. A car is not a requirement if one is staying in Fuseta as the local beach, ferry to the island beach, harbour & train station are all only a short walk from the apartment. The owners of the apartment were very quick & helpful in dealing with our booking enquiries & we were met & very warmly welcomed at the apartment by Virgilio who gave us directions to the local amenities. They had thoughtfully left drinks in the fridge, a full fruit bowl & tasty treats for us.
At the end of our holiday our pre-arranged airport transfer (a Faro taxi) did not collect us; & our early morning phonecall to Virgilio & the immediate arrival of Elizabete has left us speechless with their kindness & good nature.
We found the people in Fuseta very friendly & helpful. There was plenty of choice for eating out & in general service & food was very good.
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for accommodation in Fuseta & you are certainly assured of a warm welcome & excellent customer service from Elizabete & Virgilio.
We certainly can't wait to make a return visit.
Perfect holiday apartment in fishing village
The apartment is absolutely perfect. Elizabeth and Virgilio have thought about every little detail and about what travellers/holiday-makers need. The flat is new, spacious (with a massive balcony!), tastefully decorated, and slap bang in the centre of the village - a 2 minute walk away from the town square where you can enjoy amazing coffee and cakes and the local flair, and also a 2 minute walk from the local market where you can buy fresh fish (local!), meat and fruit & veg.
Virgilio and Elizabeth are extremely friendly and helpful, speak excellent English, and are happy to give tips for restaurants, places to go and things to see.
Fuseta is a lovely fishing village with VERY friendly and open people, and beautiful scenery ideal for walking, cycling, and swimming or simply lying on the beach.
All in all, we had a perfect holiday and would highly recommend both the apartment and Fuseta. We will come again.
Adam and Anita
