Bright, convenient apartment close to the beach and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Fuseta with our baby and pre-schooler. The apartment was perfect for us - the ground floor location was convenient and having an enclosed outside space was a lovely bonus. The centre of the town with shops and restaurants is about 15-20 minutes walk away. We mainly used the beach on the lagoon by the town, as the water was calm and good for children, but you can also take a very short ferry to the beach on the outside of the adjoining island which is enormous. We would definitely recommend this location to family and friends.

Perfect little getaway for a family of four.

  • 4 of 5

Property was mostly well maintained and very clean. Community pool area was good but not amazing.

Better lighting needed in the en suite bathroom, could not see anything. Main bathroom shower was not correctly affixed to the wall.

Excellent touch with the portable internet router provided.

The property manager in our case Joseph was excellent, welcoming and knowledgeable.

Great quiet location really no major complaints at all. Could use a couple more mirrors, lights, and towel hooks.

We would come back to this

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from an amazing week in Fuseta . Then apartment is lovely and very well positioned being a 10/15 minute walk to the lovely fishing village. The pool complex is just a few steps from the front door and is great , has brilliant facilities and a great place to chill . The garden is much bigger than we had expected and has sunshine all day equipped with loungers table chairs and umbrella . Would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family and can't wait to return . Fuseta is such a lovely village , not spoilt by mass tourism , with local that are so friendly. Must recommend that you visit the islands via water taxi or ferry ( we loved the water taxi ) beautiful unspoilt beaches . Fish restaurants are the best ever.

Spacious, clean apartment with ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

We were given a very warm welcome by the property manager. She gave us her personal mobile number and was available for advice and info throughout our stay.

The apartment was very clean and had all the necessaries that you would expect. The property manager had even bought us some water and milk for our arrival, the kitchen was also stocked with tea, coffee, salt, pepper, oil etc.

I was slightly disappointed that the pool was not as big as it appeared on the photos, but it was clean and the staff very friendly. I didn't get much chance to swim the lengths I was expecting but Fuseta is lovely and there were plenty of other opportunities to walk and cycle everywhere.

Thouroughly recommended.

Great apartment in a cute beach town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here on our trip to Spain and Portugal and really enjoyed the town of Fuzeta...what a little gem of a beach town. Warm and lovely people, great food and wine, and very convenient to visit the beach, which was beautiful. We were worried that the town would be too small for us to keep ourselves occupied but there's plenty to explore in the area and my husband loved having all the golf courses nearby.

The apartment and everything inside is brand new and is very attractive - we enjoy modern architecture and this is one of the few, new modern buildings that we could find. Nice big windows facing the ocean which open up all the way to take in the lovely air. The kitchen is well-equipped but we never cooked - too many great little restaurants within a short walk.

Local area

The Algarve

The Algarve is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world. Set in the Eastern Algarve, which is still quite unspoiled with its many beaches and islands, Fuseta is a very unique and unforgettable place to spend your holiday. The climate being the best in Europe and having more sunshine hours than the sunny California, with average temperatures of 28 degrees and higher in summer to a warm 16 degrees in winter months never falling below zero.

Filled with rich history and many buildings dating back to the Celtic and Roman times the Algarve has a lot to offer from a historic point of view. Whether you prefer long walks on one of the many beaches from multicolored cliffs on the western coast to gentile sand dunes in the east or one of many trails throughout the Algarve. Part of the fun in the sun is participating in water sport activities, boat cruises, Water parks and relaxing in the sun.

Every town is filled with cafes, delicious pastries and fresh bread. You can find a small fresh fish market in almost every coastal town and for art lovers there are great gift shops filled with traditional grafts and works from many local and foreign artists, from cork sculptures to fine art pottery.



Situated within the Ria Formosa National Park only 30 minutes from Faro Airport lies the small fishing village of Fuseta, easily reachable by car, bus or train. Of the two train stops nearby, the Fuzeta A station is only 8min walking distance from the apartment.

Fuseta is a small, quaint fishing village that is still quite 'undiscovered' and offers a tranquil relaxing environment perfect for a holiday getaway with friends and family alike. The quiet Ria Formosa lagoon is perfect for families with small children to explore and experience nature, or take the convenient, short 10 min ferry ride to the island where you'll find miles of stunning white sand beach and oceanfront.

Fuseta has many cafes, restaurants and bars to choose from, many of which offer alfresco dining in the fantastic ambience of open piazzas where the delicious smell of Portuguese cuisine fills the air. Enjoy some of the beloved pastries and freshly baked bread from the local bakeries, or indulge in one of the many choices of ice creams. Algartalhos is a large supermarket in town that should have all that you need for your holidays.

With so much to do and see, every day can be spent doing something different...or nothing at all if that's what you prefer! Take long walks or bike along the beach or the coastal path, take a cruise along the river and lagoon, canoe or kayak through the Ria Formosa, go bird watching or be more active with one of the many water sports available. If you would like to do some shopping take a trip out to the nearby shopping centre in in Faro, Olhão or Tavira, all a short trip away.

You can also choose to spend the day golfing as you have 5 fantastic courses to choose from which are situated within 20km: the Benamor, Castro Marim Golf and Country Club, Colina Verde Golf, both Quintas (Cima and Ria) and Monte Rei.
