The Algarve region

The Algarve is the most sunniest place in Europe with 3000 hrs of sun each year. There are miles of unspoilt golden sandy beaches. Flight time to Faro direct from UK is approx 2.15 hrs and Fuzeta is 25-30 mins drive from the airport. The Portuguese are warm and very helpful people and many can speak English.


Faro, the capital of the Algarve is a great place to visit for its history, particularly attractive is the old part of the city still surrounded by the Roman walls. It is the home to the city's archaeological museum. The "Golden" church contains the Macabre Spectacle of a chapel lined with the bones of 1,200 monks! Walk through the quaint streets and in shops,traditional and old or simply while away the day relaxing in the cafes/bars. Down at the harbour there is always the hustle and bustle of the boats and the occasional fisherman.


Pronounced 'ol-ee-ow', Olhão is a busy modern town with a gem of a waterfront. Its fishing port is the most important in the Eastern Algarve and its fish market is the biggest. It also has many shops, restaurants and an entire summer festival devoted to sea food. Ameijoas - the king of clams - is both grown and eaten in abundance and is a 'must-try' entreé, as are conquilas. Olhão is very Portuguese, very Algarvian and very un-touristic. The pedestrian shopping area winds in cobbled streets through the moorish-looking old town to the waterfront with its markets (fruit, veg, meat, deli as well as fish), its cafe's, parks and sparkling views out over the Ria Formosa lagoons. From the pier, you can take boats to the island villages and beaches of Armona, Culatra and Farol - all great day trips. The official visitor centre for the Ria Formosa nature reserve is just outside Olhão. Its worth a visit to see: the restored tidal mill (of which there were once many in the Ria Formosa), the bird life, and the chance to spot the very rare symbol of the park, the Purple Galinule.

Olhao recently opened a brand new shopping complex (Ria shopping) including 80 shops, a large supermarket,restaurants/bars and cinema. It also has a new Auditorium.


Tavira, 20 minutes away by car is a wonderful mix of the unexpected and the unusual. You will find a 13th century castle, the old gate of the city, a Camera Obscura, a magnificent Roman bridge, a beautiful garden with bandstand, and the old market hall which has been converted into a cafe/restaurant and craftshops' area. Then, there are the numerous churches for which Tavira is famous. Pick up your fresh fish, fruit and vegetables from the new local market and admire the salt pans where the famous Tavira salt is harvested. A picturesque ferry trip takes you to the island of Tavira from the riverside in the town, during the summer, or from the four aquas' jetty, in the winter. The Barril beach, close to Pedras del Rei, Monte Gordo or Monta Rota are often voted as the best beaches if you want to go further afield.

There are water parks to the west, zoo marine where you can swim with the dolphins and go carting all within 55 mins drive.



Fuzeta is a small town in the Ria Formosa in the eastern Algarve only 20 kms from Faro.

The famous working fishing boats leave from one end of the key and the passenger ferry and other small boats leave from the other side.

Fuzeta was originally a collection of small huts kept to store tools for fishing boats and now has developed and increased in population but is still very traditional and untouristic.

The town which is located on the coast is known for it's quaint cubed houses with their terraces and interesting chimneys and is a trademark of this part of the Algarve.

Fuzeta has the added bonus of two beaches within walking distance of the apartment. The first is a small beach on the lagoon in the town itself and is literally 12 minutes walk for the apartment. It is busy in August but the rest of the year very calm. When the tide is in it is great to swim and when the tide is out, you are reduced to paddling and exploring the shore. Families with younger children will love it being wave free and very safe.

The ocean beach is just across the lagoon on the Island of Armona and is easily reached by a short, cheap and frequent ferry ride. The Ocean beach extends for miles so those seeking more peace and privacy can walk 10 minutes to have the beach almost to themselves! Spend the day here and relax in the restaurant, bars and cafes.

The square as you walk into Fuzeta has many cafes selling tempting cakes and freshly cooked bread. There is a pizza bar, many different restaurants for meat, fish and chicken or try one of the traditional Portuguese dishes in the cafes along the waterfront. Smell the delicious chickens roasting on the BBqs on almost every street corner.

Fuzeta has a street market on Thursdays and a flea market on the first Sunday of the month.

For some strange reason Fuzeta has two train stations, Fuzeta A only being 8 minutes walk from the apartment. The single line runs along the coast and stops in most of the towns so if you are looking to visit the many charming and historical towns then it is very cheap and easy. Why not take the train to Villa Real San Antonio on the Spanish border or one of the popular towns on the west side, all the way to Lagos.

There is a newly renovated produce market situated on the quay which is open every morning,except Sundays, where you can buy all your fresh fish, meat, vegetables and fruit. On Saturday morning the market is surrounded outside by many smaller stall offering further local produce.

Also we benefit from a large supermarket situated at one end of Fuzeta that sells fresh bread,meat,produce and has a large dairy section and wine counter.

The town lies on the Algarve Ecoway, the coastal foot and cycle path, along which you can now walk east to Arroteia or Pinheiro or west to Olhao. You could always get the train back!

Having explored the cobbled back streets and through the houses you will come across all amenities from the bank to the post office, many little supermarkets, chemists,bakery, newsagents, tourist shops and cash point.

Every July there is a festival, a ceremony acting as a blessing for the town's fishermen for the coming year. Many boats participate and are decorated with flags and flowers all sounding their horns or hooters. The whole village is out in force and is a sight to see!

There are play parks and an artificial football pitch, an area where the locals play boules and at night in the peak of the summer the whole place is buzzing with families socialising and live bands playing.

GOLF - There are 7 main golf courses on the Eastern Algarve - In order, the nearest to Fuzeta to the Spanish border.


With it´s eight par-3´s and one par-4 (the second), range nets, putting green and chipping area, this Executive golf course is suitable for players of all levels. Straight forward enough to be enjoyable for beginners but also testing enough for experienced players wishing to sharpen their iron play and short game. In either case, it is a relaxing and pleasant experience and an ideal location for the professionals wishing to train groups or individuals. With an already famous long uphill 4th, the 5th is however the signature hole with a long Par 3 before landing on a semi-island green. This beautifully landscaped course, with it´s quality greens, spreads out in front of the luxury Aparthotel across undulating fairways with magnificent views both inland and out to sea.

BENAMOR - 18 Hole

The first course to open to the east of the capital of the Algarve, Faro , lies between the Tavira coast and uplands of the Serra do Caldeirão. The course offers views both southward out to the Atlantic ocean and northward towards the hinterland with its striking hills and fertile valleys. The par-4 (308m) opening hole provides a gentle introduction to the course. A slight dog-leg to the right leads to an elevated and generous green with bunkers on each side. An accurate second shot will be rewarded with the change of an early par. Many of the par 4's on this first nine are relatively short and with pleasant views over the undulating terrain.


This spectacular 18 hole golf course is in the Ria Formosa Natural Park and spreads along an almost flat surface of 660.000 square metres down to the Ria Formosa itself, hanging over it and with a stunning view of the sea. It is a PAR 72, comprising two loops of 9 holes and each loop with 2 PAR 5, five PAR 4 and two PAR 3 holes. The greens are smoothly undulating and well protected by bunkers. Greens, tees and fairways are covered with Bent Crenshaw and the roughs with Poa Pretensis with Fescuas. More than 300 trees, such as olive and carob trees have been transplanted in order to maintain the ancient border of the course and the typical features of the region landscape.


Quinta da Cima is a championship-style course of great character. Running thematically through the stunning layout is a series of lakes connected by a stream, which architect William ‘Rocky’ Roquemore has skilfully incorporated as added challenge to players. A stream with dams and permanent flowing water crosses holes 4, 5, 6 and 13. The course is bordered to the north by the National Road 125 and spreads to the south, where its limits are a municipal road that leads to the Ria Course. The greens have been seeded with Bent Crenshaw. Tees and fairways are covered with Zoysia.

MONTE REI - 18 Hole

The Monte Rei Golf Club is set in the picturesque foothills of the Eastern Algarve, with sweeping views of the Serra do Caldeirão mountains to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south. The first of two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses - "Monte Rei North" - opened for play in June 2007. This par 72 Championship course measuring 6567m from the Tournament tees is a truly unique design; with water coming into play on eleven of the eighteen holes, the course features an enjoyable series of eight par-4s, five par-3s and five par-5s in a challenging and distinctive layout. The course presentation is highly individual, each hole a design gem blending effortlessly into this natural canvas, from its ingenious shape and sculptured bunkers, to the impressive presentation and attention to detail making ever hole as remarkable as the next; fairways and greens are bordered by several lakes, indigenous plants, native grasses and trees adding drama to the landscape, and providing golfers with unforgettable moments to cherish in this unique and tranquil golf environment.


As well as commanding views of the ocean, the most easterly course in the Algarve overlooks the broad estuary of Guadiana river which forms the border between Portugal and Spain. The course is within the Castro Marim Golf & Country Club which takes its name from a nearby village famous for its medieval castle. There is a backdrop of rounded hills that roll northwards towards the Portuguese province of Alentejo. From the very start, the over-riding characteristics of this course are clear. At 375 metres downhill, the par-4 first may not appear too strenuous, but as you stand on the elevated tee you can soon see why it is rated stroke index 4. The fairway is narrow and lined with young umbrella pine trees. It drops away but climbs to the elevated green. The contours of the land must be carefully kept in mind as you decide where to place your drive.


Designed by Severiano Ballesteros, Quinta do Vale Golf Resort features an 18-hole Championship layout including 6 Par-5´s, 6 Par-4´s and 6 Par-3´s.

Marvelously integrated in the landscape and with a luxurious view over the Guadiana River, the course sits into a natural valley always overlooked from the Clubhouse.

At Quinta do Vale, players will notice Seve´s creativity as well as his promise:“To please everyone no matter what their handicap is”.

Numerous dogleg holes, wide fairways and obstacles enhance the course quality and its breath-taking surroundings. The challenge awaits you at Quinta do Vale Golf Resort.


The Ria Formosa natural park with it's salt pans,marshes, lakes and wetlands is a haven for birds and bird watchers alike. Anywhere between Cape St. Vincent and Vila Real (extreme west to east) will put you near a great spot for seeing many lovely species such as white stork, bustard, black-shouldered kite, hoopoe and many more.

There are guided bird watching tours available from Fuzeta waterfront and organised boat tours.

"Relaxing vacation with great weather"

Fuseta still gives the impression of a traditional fishing village. Although there are more and more vacation apartments being built on the West side of the city. The apartment was in good condition. The view from the roof top terrace was great!
The best value (quality/cost) place to eat is Casa Corvo (Rui's) just before the traffic circle at the peer. Great fresh fish at an unbeatable price!
