The Algarve region
The Eastern Algarve is characterised by stunning ocean beaches which stretch unbroken for up to 20km forming part of the Ria Formosa National Park and picturesque towns.
The tranquil beauty of the beaches and tidal marshlands combined with small towns retaining their local character clearly differentiate the Eastern Algarve form the more developed areas west of Faro.
Fuseta is a traditional sea front Portuguese village which benefits from a tranquil lagoon beach in the village which is ideal for young children. Additionally, the ocean barrier island beaches of the Ria Formosa can be reached by way of a five minute ferry ride from the village.
These beaches provide 14km of unbroken sand and even in August, for those who like to avoid crowds, a 10 minute walk from the ferry landing will lead to empty expanses of sand and ocean. Boat trips can also be taken to explore the numerous islands in the Ria Formosa National Park.
The small village square and seafront provide numerous opportunities to sample local cuisine ina selection of Portuguese restaurants.
Fuseta is 10km from Olhao and 20km from Faro town and Tavira all of which can be reached by train from the local station located 0.5km from the apartment. A little further afield there is a good range of things to do to suit all tastes. For nature lovers there are forest walks, cruises along the River Guadiana or nature trails along the Ria Formosa Reserve where bird watching is in abundance.
By travelling towards the West there are some excellent shopping centres in Faro, Olhao and Guia as well as the famous Water Parks and Zoo Marine (wonderful for children), all easily reached by car.
For golfers there are many excellent courses situated in the Eastern Algarve. Within a 20km radius there are 7 courses to choose from. Benamor, Colina Verde (excellent for beginners and newer players) and the two Quintas (Ria and Cima) are the most popular. Both Quintas are situated in the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve and have been described by experienced golfers as two of the most beautiful courses in the region.
The prestigious new course of Monte Rei designed by Jack Nicklaus has its first 18 holes open and is continuing its development to the second phase, offering the height of golfing luxury.
Travelling only 10km further on towards Spain, the challenging course of Castro Marim, along with its famous country club comes highly recommended and just across the border are the Costa Esuri and Quinta do Vale courses.
Additionally, the many championship courses of Vilamoura and Quinta do Logo are only a 40 minute drive away.

The holiday was made by the excellent accomodation, the amenities and the closeness to supermarkets, beach, shops and restaurants
The location is still traditional and the weater was superb. There was a hot tub on the roof, two pools with a security card access to ensure safety, a ferry to the beach/lagoon, some excellent restraurants. One of which provided all you could eat and drink for 10 euros. The traditional food was fish, caught fresh on the day and tasted amazing.
The owners and Jane provided us with answers to all our questions

"Great top floor apartment with lovely view"
Arte Nova, apartment 8,2E, Bias do Sul in Fuzeta is on the top floor of a three storey block on the inland side of the attractive Ria development. It is raised above the coast level slightly so there are good views from the balcony and roof area beyond the houses in front to the Ria Formosa natural park, towards Fuzeta island and beach. At the rear it looks out to older lower level villas in large gardens.
The apartment is of high quality with good fixtures and furnishings. It has a spacious lounge/dining area/kitchen with two bedrooms (one double, ensuite with shower the other a twin) and a bathroom. The roof area is accessed up a rather tortuous wooden stairs and contains a large Jacuzzi and plenty of space for sunbeds as well as a dining table.
The apartment is quiet although it has the usual semi-rural background chorus of barking dogs and crowing cockerels which we found we could blot out at night by closing the large windows/doors and turning on the air-con at a low level. The communal swimming pool is in a separate area and has a small infinity pool at upper level with water cascading into the larger ground floor pool.
Fuzeta is a traditional fishing town rather than a tourism resort so is not yet overrun by tourists. The centre and some restaurants are a 10 minute walk while the nearest beach is about 15 minutes. The boat to the island beach runs frequently and takes a further 10 minutes. There are several decent restaurants and a couple of supermarkets but not many tourist type shops. The station is only 8 minutes from the apartment and offers a quick easy link to the larger towns of Faro, Ohlau and Tavira – trains average about one an hour daily until late evening.
We recommend a visit to this pleasant apartment and resort.

"Beautifully clean and well equipped apartment - fab hot tub!"
Very clean apartment and well equipped - tea,coffee,milk,water provided on arrival. Quiet and peaceful location. Spacious accommodation with air conditioning. Small staircase (no good for elderly or toddlers but fine for older children) leading to clean hot tub on roof terrace with loungers and chairs/table. About 12 min walk to village square and beach. Communal pool - very clean and plenty of loungers (no shade so bring own umbrella) Family holiday with children aged 9 and 11. Go here for complete relaxation.

"Lovely relaxing break"
Fuzeta is a very quiet little fishing town with not a lot to do, just right if you want to catch the sun and relax. The apartment was lovely, the little complex nice a quiet with great views over the estuary... good for bird spotting. Easy driving into Faro and the other way to Tavira - Tavira is well worth a visit, we ate out their several times. Would definately go back for another visit.

"Stunning views and gorgeous apartment"
Our second time here and even better than last year. Swim before breakfast, morning on the balcony enjoying views of the sea, roof terrace and jacuzzi in the afternoon then it's just the problem of deciding whether to eat in or out.
Everything you need in the apartment and a good range of restaurants in Fuseta plus bars on the beach.
An excellent holiday with the backup of Jane on the end of a phone if you need help.

"Gorgeous Apartment, Gorgeous place, Fabulous people!"
Me and my friend rent a different place each year and this was by far the best place we have ever stayed. The apartment was wonderful, clean and had everything you needed.
The village of Fuzeta also accomodated for all of our needs.
The whole holiday was arranged very well and we felt very relaxed at all times.
Considering coming back with my partner.
Thanks for everything!

"Peaceful and really well equipped with glorious views"
Had a wonderful week here and booking to come back in 2012. The welcome by Jane was smooth and efficient and her local advice was very useful. Also nice to know she was on the end of a phone if we had any problems Lovely appartment, a real home from home plus good weather. The only thing to decide was whether to sit on the balcony or go up on the roof terrace in the jacuzzi. We had a car for the week but you could manage quite well without as the train station isn't far away
Would recommend most highly.
