About this location
The Algarve region
The Algarve is one of the most popular holiday destinations where the sun shines for 300 days of the year. It has excellent sandy beaches and some of the best golf courses in Europe.
The Eastern Algarve is far less exposed to tourism than the West. The small resorts along the Eastern Algarve coast still retain much of their character and the beaches and golf courses are less crowded. Temperatures average from 15c in January (the coolest month) to 28c or more in July/August.
The historic town of Tavira, classed as the capital of the Eastern Algarve, is well worth a visit and is easily reached by car (10 mins drive) or train. You will not fail to be enthralled by its unspoilt charm, character and tranquility. As you wander along the cobbled streets, you'll see an abundance of history dating as far back as 2000BC. A Roman bridge links the 2 parts of the town across the River Gilao, its sides decorated with traditional old bars and restaurants where you can relax and enjoy a peaceful drink or meal. The many churches and the typical fisherman's harbour leading to the River Formosa Natural Park are all places to visit, along with the wonderful daily market selling fresh home grown produce. Tavira Island and its lovely beach is accessible by ferry boat from the town and offers excellent facilities.
Olhao is also worth a visit (7km) and is famous for its fish restaurants along the promenade.
OTHER THINGS TO SEE AND DO
By travelling a little further afield there are a good range of things to do to suit all tastes. By travelling towards the West there are some excellent shopping centres in Faro and Ghia as well as the famous Water Parks and Zoo Marine, all easily reached by car (around 45 minutes) or by day trip coach. From Fuzeta, it is easy to take a day trip to Spain. The lovely border town of Ayamonte is not far by car, and once there you can sample the delights of another country, including wine, tapas and shopping. Or you can travel by car, local bus or train to Vila Real de Santo Antonio and from there take the 15 minute ferry crossing to Ayamonte. For the more adventurous the vibrant city of Seville is approx 170km away. For budding historians the Castle at Castro Marim is worth a look.
This is perfect accommodation for golfers wishing to sample the excellent courses situated in the Eastern Algarve. Within a 20km radius there are 7 courses to choose from. Benamor and the 2 Quintas (Ria and Cima) are the most popular and can be reached within 15 minutes. The prestigious new course of Monte Rei designed by Jack Nicklaus offers the height of golfing luxury - although a costly experience, this is a real treat for golfing fanatics wishing to experience a little high life! Travelling only 10kms 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 now growing in popularity. Additionally, the many championship courses of Vilamoura and Quinta do Logo are only a 40 minute drive away.
Fuzeta is a traditional Portuguese town with character and friendly people. Increasing in popularity, Fuzeta has much to offer. Restaurants range from 'cheap and cheerful' Portuguese cuisine (sardines/chicken, salad and chips) to Pizzerias and to good quality cuisine - as well as cafes and bars serving drinks and snacks at reasonable prices.
The inexpensive river ferry will take you to the lovely sandy Armona Island. The island is separated from the mainland by the Ria Formosa which is in itself a proteced wildlife area with many migrating birds. There is also a small sandy beach in Fuzeta.
