Overview

About the property

2 bedroom apartment (sleeps 6) with 2 private terraces

The fishing village of Fuseta is a pearl waiting to be discovered on the sandy beaches of the eastern Algarve.

This luxurious and stylish apartment, enjoying unspoiled views across the Ria Formosa Nature reserve, is in a class of its own. There are two double bedrooms, one with a double bed, and the other with two single beds which can be zip-linked into a double, and two sofas in the living area which can also be single beds. One shower room and one bathroom with shower facility. The designer Italian kitchen has been built by a cook, for cooks, which includes a purified water chiller fountain. With a dining terrace directly attached to the kitchen and indoor dining area, it’s a perfect place for entertaining. There is also a large roof terrace, with spectacular views across the lagoon and out to the ocean. This is accessed by a communal staircase and two flights of stairs. Satellite television and wi-fi available at no extra charge.

Situated on the edge of the lagoon, the apartment is a short walking distance from restaurants and bars in the village, the daily fish market and the beach. Driving is not necessary, but a garage is included, if required. The train station is only a few minutes walk away, and gives access to the length of the Algarve.

Bike hire is available.

Relax in the comfort of this elegant and superbly positioned apartment, whilst exploring and enjoying all that this area offers.

Born of sea and sand, Fuseta is a fishing village with traditional square shared houses. It offers, not only a golden sandy beach on the lagoon with warm waters in which to swim and snorkel, but also mile upon mile of white sand on the island of Armona, just a few minutes away by ferryboat. Local caught and barbecued seafood, clams cooked in the traditional Portuguese way, beef cooked on a hot stone and monkfish kebabs are just a few of the many delicious dishes served in local restaurants all within easy walking distance of the apartment.

It was ok...

  • 2 of 5

The photo you see in this picture is actually on the roof top, not at all off this unit. Not a space you could use for coffee in the morning in your house coats. To get everything you see onto this table would take several flights of stairs up two full stories to a public area

Since my Mother has mobility issues, we did not ever use the roof top. The actual patio that was off this unit looked directly into another building and a parking lot. Being outside people though, it was very disappointing not to have an outside place to sit. It was because of this picture we actually rented this place, so don't be fooled. The pictures are misleading. Fuseta is very noisy at nights with local festivals that went til 2 am, 4 out of the 8 nights we were there. The unit itself was nice and well equipped. We would not consider returning to this unit.

Owner's Response: Firstly, let me say how sorry I am that there was a misunderstanding about the roof terrace. There was absolutely no intention to mislead, and to avoid any other possible misunderstanding, I have now made this very clear in the description. The roof terrace is located on the roof of the building which is two flights of stairs above the apartment. Each apartment has its own walled off area for private use. This arrangement is normal. If only, during the many e-mails received from this guest, prior to occupation, she had raised the question of stairs and suitability for a person with restricted mobility, we would not have our first unhappy visitor in eight years.

Quiet respite in the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to spend a month in the Algarve. The well equipped apartment is in a location that can't be beat with beautiful views of the lagoon, and walking distance to the train and everywhere else in this small fishing village. We loved watching the activity during low tide as people dug and scraped for clams, and seeing the boats, windsurfers, sailboarders, etc. who enjoyed all the lagoon has to offer. The salt flats offered a welcome bike ride or walk where birds and wildflowers were in abundance. The apartment itself was lovely and clean. Communication with the owner and manager was effortless. We cant wait to return!

You Won't Want To Leave!

  • 5 of 5

We first stayed in this fabulous apartment in 2010, and enjoyed Easter here again this year. The location won't be beaten and the views of the lagoon from the lounge are mesmerizing, you won't need the television.

Such are the quality of the furnishings and decor that the apartment still feels like new.

The kitchen is a chef's dream, with plenty of table and glassware to self cater comfortably.

This is more than just a rental, and the owner has done and thought of everything possible to ensure a wonderful stay.

You will not be disappointed.

We have stayed in many apartments over the years but this one is without a doubt the best. A truly five star accommodation.

The Apartment is absolutely lovely.

  • 5 of 5

We would strongly recommend this beautiful Apt., spotlessly clean, well equipped, delightful location/views and possibly the best welcome pack we have had anywhere in the world. Fuseta had a real community feel to it, and the people were so helpful and friendly. We started each day with coffees in the bustling square, and tried to resist the "big" portions of cake !! With a car, we visited Loule, Portimao, Tavira, Alvor etc., but we were glad we were staying in Fuseta and although small, and a little "worn" in places, the atmosphere was great and we always felt safe. We were not pestered either by the continuous "sellers/beggars/etc" that you get everywhere else, so for us it was a totally different and relaxing holiday. Thank you June and Alvaro., we will be back. April 2016, Caine

Certainly deserves 5 stars. Excellent presentation and a great kitchen with every conceivable appliance. Very generous welcome package and informative notes on what to do and where to eat. The excellent garaging was a welcome change from our experiences in Granada and Cordoba.

June's agent, Alvaro, was very obliging and knowledgeable.

Apartment is highly recommended for those who want the comforts and convenience of home while overseas.

Lovely apartment for great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We (two families with two small children) stayed in June's apartment for one week and had a really great time. The apartment is very well equipped, really cosy and we felt home from home. The sea, nice bars and cafés, shops,... are in walking distance and Fuseta is a calm and relaxed place. Perfectly for holidays! The check-in worked without any problems and there was always the opportunity to get any help if needed. We would definitely recommend the apartment and June as a host! Thanks for the great time!
