“Excellent Well Equipped Apartment”
We stayed in Fuzeta for the month of March, and although the weather was sometimes a challenge this year, the apartment was very comfortable and just as described. We have stayed in holiday rentals where the first thing you had to do was buy staples like salt, pepper, sugar, flour, etc. Not so here. All that is provided so that you have only to purchase the food you want to eat. The fact that Hilary and her family use the apartment is obvious by the quality and quantity of the equipment provided. There are numerous restaurants in Fuzeta, even an excellent vegetarian option called the Escandinavia Green Spirit, as well as lots of fish restaurants. If you run out of options here, Olhao and Tavira are a short distance with more options to choose from. Thank you Hilary for providing such a comfortable home away from home!
Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review, we are pleased that you felt at home in our apartment and were comfortable. We try to make all our guests feel welcome and are able to get to know the place we have come to think of as Home. We hope that spring has arrived in Canada and you will have seen the end of Winter.
“Great Autumn break”
This apartment is superbly equipped and has everything you could need for your holiday. The open plan kitchen, dining, lounge faces the sea view so a great place to relax. The bedrooms and bathrooms are at the rear of the apartment with patio doors from both bedrooms onto the shady garden. It is a perfect layout. We stayed for a mini break at the beginning of Novemeber. The weather was superb and contributed to a restful stay. Fruseta has huge rustic charm as it is a thriving fishing village as well as a holiday resort. The beach areas are really clean and there are plenty of cafes and restaurants to choose from. It is an easy and fairly level walk to all of the village amenities. We took the train to Faro which was a great day out. Everyone involved in the tourist industry appears to speak Emglish really well so getting about and ordering in restaurants is really easy. I can thoroughly recommend this apartment for a relaxing stay in Fruzeta
Owner's reply: Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment and that you got good Algarve weather. Fuseta is a great place for a restful break all year round. We would love to welcome you back in the future.
“Excellent apartment, the perfect base for a great holiday.....”
After reading all of the positive reviews I was confident we'd found a gem and we were not disappointed. Hilary was easily contactable from the start and we even asked a few questions on the local area whilst there too and she was always quick to respond. Due to late eve arrival we had asked for a few breakfast items to be purchased which was no problem at all and we had agreed to pay Mars on arrival. However, when we offered euros for the items they said ' no' and that it was covered. How kind! The accommodation was ideal for us with a 2 & 5 year old. Plenty of space and having the outdoor area was a real bonus. Having the option to stay in and BBQ and not have to go out (which is always a gamble with tired youngsters) was the perfect combination. The apartment is like home from home with many essentials there for your use. All that's asked is if you do use something then please replace - seems more than fair! It's very clean and safe. Having the pool opposite was great, well maintained and clean. We didn't hire a car and we were happy with our decision. Just as previous reviewers had said we found the distance to the beach, shops, restaurants all manageable with the 2 year in the buggy. The lagoon beach is wonderful for young children, you feel very safe without the huge waves that you normally have to encounter. This was our first visit to Portugal and we would go back in a heartbeat. The area itself is quiet and not too 'touristy'. A walk down to the front you will find some good restaurants and a kids play area in the evening with inflatables, trampoline etc. Overall this was the perfect mix. Happy kids = happy parents! Thank you Hilary for being the perfect host.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind words, we are pleased that you had a wonderful holiday. As you say, the lagoon beach is ideal for families with young children and the short ferry ride to the Ilha d'Armona, with its beautiful sand and views, offers ocean waves, some sporting activities and a choice of beach bars. It is possible to find meals to suit all tastes in the variety of restaurants, including the freshest locally caught fish landed at the quay. Fuzeta is truly a hidden gem.
“A fantastic apartment in a fabulous area with stunning views across the Ria Formosa.”
The apartment in Fuseta is very well equipped with a large back garden and amazing views across the Ria Formosa, pictures can't do this place justice, it has to be seen to be fully appreciated. The resort is very well kept with a split level pool that was never busy, we often had it to ourselves. The centre of town is about 10 minutes walk away and the beach 15 minutes walk so nothing was too far away. Fuseta beach was very pretty and not too busy. It is worth hiring a car or using the train and visiting the other local towns, Tavira is full of history and has a good selection of restaurants. We spent 2 weeks in Fuseta and will definitely be going back.
Owner's reply: We are so pleased that you had a good holiday and liked the town amenities as well as those on the Fuseta Ria Resort. We have not tired of the views across the Ria to the Island beach and Ocean beyond - there is always something to catch your eye. We would love to welcome you back to the Resort.
We spent a week in Fuzeta for holidays in July, and this apartment was a fantastic place to stay. It is very comfortable, well equipped and very clean. We really felt like at home. The leisure area has a small but nice pool with a cascade, which our children enjoyed very much . The apartment is within walking distance to the Fuzeta centre, where you can either go to the local beach or take a very short boat trip to the open ocean beach, which is amazing and so big that if you walk 5 minutes you are virtually alone. We have been to a number of places in the Algarve in previous years, and this is one of the best. We will definitely be back.
Owner's reply: We are very pleased that had a good holiday and that you liked Fuseta, just as we do! The boats run to the island all year round and there are water taxis too, great for walks along the island in winter, lunch at the cafes at the Olhão end and catching a ferry and train back. We hope to host you again.
“Wonderful apartment for a relaxing family holiday.”
We stayed at the apartment for one week in August with our children aged five and one and had a lovely relaxing holiday. Prior to our holiday Hilary helped with all our questions and the lady who met us at the apartment was very helpful and it was reassuring have someone to call should you need to. This was the second time we had stayed at the apartment and would definitely consider visiting again. Fuzeta is a great location for holidaying in the sun with young children as its family orientated and the apartment is only a short walk away from shops, cafes / restaurants and the beach. The apartment was well equipped with everything you could need, from all your home comforts to beach equipment and toys which really came in handy. There were also toys and games in the apartment and our little ones had lots of fun in the paddling pool. The shopping trolley was very useful to help carry food and supplies back from the shops. The barbeque was great to cook the fresh meat and fish that was readily available from the local fish market and shops (and very reasonably priced). We spent lots of time in the pool which is just outside the apartment and had an inside area which was well equipped with books, games and refreshments. The local beach was perfect for little ones as the sea was shallow and calm and there were refreshments and toilet facilities at the beachside cafe. Overall, I would highly recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday with everything close by. I would also highly recommend Yellowfish transfers to get to and from the airport - they were very friendly, on time and had the correct car seats for the children.
Owner's reply: We are pleased that you enjoyed your return visit to Fuzeta, and that Yellowfish and our manager made your arrival and stay easier. Hilary
“Lovely Relaxing Family Holiday”
We stayed in this apartment for 11 nights in August 2016. The owner, Hilary,was incredibly helpful answering all our enquiries, pre-booking and post the same day. Nothing at all was too much trouble. The apartment was very comfortable and incredibly clean and more than catered for all needs in every way. Hilary has certainly thought of every single thing possible to make her clients stay in the apartment as perfect as can be. The apartment is located about a 15 minute walk into the main square/lagoon where there are several restaurants and bars available. The seafood was beautiful and as fresh as it gets! Fuseta is not a commercialised resort and is pretty quiet but for our family this year was just what we needed, our teenage daughter and her friend soon got into the laid back vibe and didn't want to come home! The beaches are beautiful with soft white sands and very safe for children. It was nice to have the apartment pool just across the road to cool off! The local train service was very efficient and cheap and air conditioned! We went to Faro which was lovely and Tavira which was absolutely beautiful. We cannot recommend this apartment enough if you are looking for a chilled out relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of more commercialised resorts then this apartment in Fuseta fits the bill! Thank you Hilary!
“Great apartment for small kids”
We had a great experience staying in Hillary's apartment this July. The apartment is very clean, well equipped (air-con, cable tv, large number of cooking untensils, dishwasher, wi-fi) and within walking distance of the centre of Fuesta. My partner, the kids and I all had a very nice time and made the most of the garden and the bbq. Hillary was very helpful throughout and booking was easy and the neighbours were also very kind. I would definitely book this apartment again
“Relaxing family holiday”
We really enjoyed our week in Fuseta. The small fishing village is easy to find your way around on foot, and by bike which we hired one day. The restaurants are very good value for money, and the fish is delicious. We liked the Tapas Restaurante and Capris in the square, and some evenings there was open air music and dancing which added to the holiday atmosphere. The weather was hot and sunny so the apartment pool was the perfect way to cool down, our 12year old daughter loved it! The apartment is excellent and has everything you could possibly need. We especially enjoyed eating breakfast outside in the garden each day. The air conditioning was an added bonus. We would definitely recommend a visit to the island beach and to Faro by train. We had never visited Portugal before but we found Fuseta a lovely place for a relaxing family holiday.
Owner's reply: It is great to hear that you enjoyed your holiday without using a car. Getting around using the train is easy and good value, and hiring bikes allows you to get to places not accessable by car.
“Home from home”
The apartment is extremely comfortable, clean and very well equipped. Wifi would be the icing on the cake. All of our dealings with Hilary the owner, Jane who looks after the apartment and Francisco the cab driver were easy, friendly and efficient. Fuzeta is ideal if you want a relaxed holiday where nothing is much effort. The locals are friendly and welcoming. We ate at the barbecue restaurant near the fish market nearly every day. It was very cheap and the food was excellent. The atmosphere Rui and his staff create is brilliant - it's like paying very little to join a big party! We can highly recommend the apartment and Fuseta.
