Guestbook comments from the owner

Wir haben 2 herrliche Wochen in dieser wunderbaren Wohnung mit ihrem großen Balkon verbracht. An der Ausstattung fehlt absolut nichts. Es war alles sehr gepflegt mit wöchentlichem Wäschewechsel und geschmackvoll. Als nette Geste empfanden wir die bereitstehende Erstversorgung. So bald möglich werden wir wiederkommen.

Im "Capri" haben wir sehr gut gespeist, wenn wir nicht zu Hause gekocht haben.


Elegant, well-equipped apartment

We spent 2 glorious weeks in this beautiful apartment with its large balcony. There was absolutely nothing missing with the facilities.

It was all very well maintained with a weekly change of linen and nicely ecorated.

We thought the waiting welcome pack was a nice touch.

We will be back as soon as possible .

We have dined very well at The "Capri", if we did not want to cook at home.

Wonderful apartment! close to the beach, with everything you need for a perfect relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks (21/6 - 4/7) in Ian's wonderful apartment

From the moment we booked with Ian everything ran smoothly, plenty of information about what to expect, and the apartment is as described and the photos show the apartment as it is. Alvaro meets you and explains how everything works aircon etc and facts about the area...the lovely open plan lounge, kitchen and dinner with double patio doors on to the spacious terrace. The fly screens on all doors/Windows were a fabulous touch, meaning no bugs are able to come in.. No mosquito plugs needed! A bonus..The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of nice crockery, cutlery, place mats, serving dishes and glasses (We were a party of two couples and we always had plenty of glasses etc even when the dishwasher was on).

The two bathrooms are also modern and you get plenty of lovely fluffy towels and flannels including large beach towels. We used the BBQ, again easy to use with good utensils.

The Beach is a short walk along the front, it has lovely soft sand and very clean, Ian provides umbrellas and cool boxes/icepacks for you to use and a couple of beach seats/ mats, there are Sun lounges and parasols for hire in front of the beach bar/cafe if you need added comfort.

We had most of our evening meals in Fuseta in the square, don't expect posh restaurants, there aren't any! There are plenty of friendly bar/restaurants that put their tables in the square to eat. The fish is all amazing wherever you go and all displayed in cabinets for you to choose, it all comes straight off the fishing boats and was some of the best fish we have ever tasted. If you don't like fish, the pork, lamb and chicken is also very good.

Portuguese wines both white/red/rose are all cheap to buy and very good. We were paying on average about €60 euros for bread/olives/pates for starters then main course, puddings,wine for the ladies and beers for the men

Fuseta is not a main tourist area, it's more like a small village in England. Butcher, baker, super market, mini market, fish market and fresh produce daily, and a small shop selling buckets/spades/etc.

We found everyone very friendly, if you like a holiday away from the tourist traps, with a lovely beach, good food that is cheap to buy and a wonderful accommodation, this is the place for you.

There are nice places to visit if you want to, Tavira, Faro and Estoi or a boat to the islands.

Thank you Ian, for the use of your wonderful apartment it was definitely 5*

Lovely modern apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful apartment has everything, and more.

It is so well equipped, they really have thought of everything to make for the perfect stay. We were very pleased to have the welcome pack (which included wine) as we had a long journey!

There are lovely local restaurants very near by, and a gorgeous sandy beach.

I will definitely be booking again, thank you.

Amazing property, I felt more than at home here.

  • 5 of 5

On arrival the apartment was very well Equiptest, clean and inviting. There was everything that I needed to make my stay comfortable and I absolutely fell in love with the double walk in shower. The balcony was very private and a real sun trap where I enjoyed many hours in the beautiful sunshine in complete privacy. The kitchen was extremely well equipped with everything you could wish for. The roof top terrace was amazingly spacious, well equipped and with stunning views. Fuseta was perfect for me In so many ways, easy to get around, beautiful beach and beach bar and plenty of places to dine out with friendly people. I felt very relaxed and safe here and so enjoyed seeing the house martinis flying around. I would definitely come back.

Nice place, nice people, what's not to like!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed In Ian's apartment for a fortnight mid-March. The weather was not kind but the apartment was well positioned, clean and extremely well-equipped. Once I'd figured out how to work the TV - important when the weather is dodgy - it was a perfect place to stay. Ian is a good guy and his rep in Fuseta, Alvaro, was extremely helpful. Fuseta is a terrific contrast to the golf-obsessed sites west of Faro. Friendly locals and a sense of getting to know the real Algarve. Meanwhile, it is so easy to drive to other interesting places such as Tavira or old Faro town ( a delight ) or indeed Lagos, an hour away by the permanently empty motorway and, yes, play golf. Top tip by the way, if hiring a car then pay the modest charge to activate your automatic toll charger for the Mway. We've no hesitation in recommending this apartment, just hope you get better weather than us. Toodlepip.
