Location description from owner

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 30-35 mins drive from the airport. The Portuguese are warm and very helpful people and many can speak English.

FARO

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.

OLHÂO

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

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.

Fuseta

Fuzeta village originally only a collection of small huts kept to store tools from fishing boats,has gradually developed and increased in population of a little more than 2000 inhabitants. This ancient seaside village and bird watchers paradise,first inhabited by the Romans,is a favourite for travelers seeking a beautiful or romantic destination in the Algarve. Just a 10 minute walk and through the back streets will take you to quaint cubed houses with their terraces and chimneys,a trademark of this part of the Algarve. Relax in one of the many cafes and bars in the main square before heading off to the calm smaller beach on the lagoon, ideal for the younger children. A 10 minute ferry ride takes you to the island and the long clean beaches. Here you can spend the day kite surfing at one end or just relaxing in the calmer waters in the opposite direction or simply walk for miles. Arrange to go island hopping and enjoy a relaxing lunch organised by one of the tour operators.
After catching one of the frequent ferries back to the village how about sampling one of the many seafood appetizers whilst drinking a beer in one of the bars on the waterfront , watching the colourful fishing boats come and go. Explore the cobbled back streets and you will find many restaurants dotted throughout this charming village. Newspaper shops,post office,bank,pharmacy,butchers and the daily local produce markets are all in and around the main part of Fuzeta.
There is a market in Fuzeta on the 1st Thursday of each month and a flee market/car boot sale on the 1st Sunday of each month were you will find lots of interesting trinkets as well as food and drink.
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.
At night there is usually some live music in one of the bars and the whole of Fuzeta is alive with all the locals and their families enjoying the wonderful atmosphere.

Olhão Seafood Festival takes place in August (about the 2nd week). It's one of the biggest gastronomy festivals in the Algarve with lots of delicious seafood cooked to perfection to tantalise the taste-buds! There is plenty to entertain you with live music every night.
Hire a bike and take the blue cycle route that runs along the coast.

“Fuseta a place you can relax”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2014

Before you even got on the plane you felt confident that your needs were being taken care of. After Alan confirmed the booking the local agent took over. The apartment was spotless modern and very comfortable and what a view. The pool was spotless and in a great position to relax and read. The small town of Fuseta is typically Portuguese and life goes at a pace slower than most. Great street music and food with a great local family atmosphere. Travel is easy by train for most places we especially liked Tavira with its churches and great beaches. The sea is the Atlantic so not as warm as the Med but beautifully clear and still great to swim in. Tavira has calmer waters than Fuseta but both great for kids and adults alike. Don't expect a swift pace things happen at a relaxed pace so do like us soak it up and relax. A Brilliant experience and one we intend to do again. A great place a great location and wonderful weather thank you so much.

Thanks for the great review and I am very pleased that you had such a great time. We look forward to welcoming you back to Fuzeta for your next holiday.

“Everything you need for a relaxing sunny getaway.”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2014

The accommodation was clean, comfortable and quiet. It had everything you need from the practical (washing machine) to the essential (swimming pool). The sleepy village was a short walk away and filled with coffee shops selling amazing pastries and restaurants selling local dishes. An inexpensive ferry ride takes you to massive beach with the softest sand. There are other activities available in the area but we didn't have a chance to experience them all. I highly recommend taking advantage of this rental as the owners are friendly and the property is well managed. It provides an ideal base to explore the area and experience the culture, or just to relax.

We are very glad you had a great time and look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future!!

“Fantastic well-run apartment that will give you all you could ever wish for”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2014

Four of us, in our mid-twenties, used this apartment as an escape route from the day-to-day grind of being in your mid-twenties and it provided us with exactly what we wanted, and so much more. Well-priced and well-run, by both Alan and Debbie (owners) and Jane in Fuzeta, the apartment was spotless when we arrived and we were provided with a fantastic welcome by Jane, who gave us all the information necessary for our stay. The apartment is well-maintained with comfortable beds, two lovely bathrooms and a fantastic kitchen/living area. The garden is the perfect sun-trap for when you want the sun and provides shade when you need the shelter from the UV. The pools are clean, sparkling and incredibly refreshing to jump into (I recommend jumping in as soon as you arrive - it makes the journey worthwhile instantly.) Fuzeta itself is a sleepy little town but that does not detract from your experience at all. Go have a coffee on the square in the morning, walk along the beach and eat your dinner at the fish restaurants along the harbour - fish so fresh that even fish-haters will love it (as two of our party did). The village also provides a fantastic base for which to explore. Go to Tavira - it's as beautiful as the guide books say. Get the boat over to the island and walk for 5 minutes and you feel marooned - if you've been searching for peace and quiet, you will find it there. And take advantage of the array of boat-excursions on offer - the dolphin spotting trip is spectacular. All in all, this is a lovely apartment in a lovely part of the world. I'd recommend it to all.

Really glad you all had such a great time and that you got to experience the unspoilt part of the Algarve that is Fuzeta. You are most welcome to stay again and hopefully we will see you again next year!
