Location description from manager

The Algarve region

The Algarve is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Every year tourists in their thousands flock to the south of Portugal to soak up the sun and relax in this European paradise.

The Algarve is full of history and heritage. Still standing today are buildings and walls dating back to the Roman times. You are never far from a museum or guided tour to allow you to gain a more in depth insight into the evolution of this beautiful region.

The Algarve has the best all round climate in the whole of Europe and can boast more sunshine hours than California!

Average temperatures range from 16º-17º in January and February, 22º in October to 29º-30º or higher in August.

Temperatures never fall below zero.

With over 100 miles of beautiful cliff faces and extensive golden beaches, the Algarve offers one of the most dramatic coastlines in the world.

There is something for everyone, a relaxing day at an intimate cove, walking along the golden beaches, joining in with the water sports or just taking in the many different sight seeing tours in the local towns.

Fuseta

Fuzeta is a small town in the Ria Formosa in the eastern Algarve.

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. The first is a small calm beach on the lagoon in the town itself and is literally only a 12 minute stroll . 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!

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. 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 for all your other groceries, there is a large supermarket in Fuzeta that is open 7 days a week.

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.

OLHAO

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. Olhao recently opened a brand new shopping complex (Ria shopping) including 80 shops, a large supermarket, restaurants/bars and cinema. There is also kart racing in the underground car park here.

Olhao also has a new Auditorium.

Olhao 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.

The Sea Food festival takes place in August and half of the water front gardens are closed off and turned into a massive gastronomic and entertainment delight. The sea food is plentiful and excellent, the entertainment is top class and the organisation great. Its a hugely popular event and deservedly so. Don´t miss it if you are here at the time.

Olhão highlights:

Sea food, sampled in any of the restaurants or bought to cook at home.

A coffee, a beer, a glass of wine in one of the market cafes looking over the lagoon.

Sea food festival in August - brilliant !

MONCARAPACHO

The old market town of Moncarapacho still has the old meeting square,where you can enjoy a meal or drinks with the locals. Its calm,unhurried atmosphere is the true Portuguese experience for the perfect location to enjoy your holiday. With festivals held regularly throughout the summer with live music and dancing.

The town offers all the necessary facilities; banks, post office, internet, supermarkets and other shops, petrol station, meat/fish/vegetable market, restaurants and plenty of pavement cafés. It even has its own tiny museum and pottery.

A restaurant in Moncarapacho that I would recommend is "COLIBRI". Try "Bife Na Pedra" which is steak on the stone!

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.

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.

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

Train:

500m from nearest train stop (single track) linking to Vila Real Santo Antonio and Tavira (East), to Faro with its international airport and shopping centres (20 mins). Alternatively at Faro you can connect to the western Algarve or the fast train to Lisbon(3 hrs).
