Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Fuseta - Formoso village Fuseta
Two good sized bedrooms, one en-suite. Large lounge diner and balconies.
This is a newly completed luxury apartment furnished to a very high standard in an exclusive modern complex. The apartment has unimpaired waterside panoramic views over the Ria Formosa Lagoon, across to the Atlantic coast. It has every amenity including a pool, lifts, and garage. In this apartment you are never far from a sea view. An ideal base to enjoy relaxing sunny days and the many activities in the surrounding area (golf, water sports, watching wildlife on the Ria Formosa) or exploring the Algarve. It is also within easy reach of Andalucia in Spain (30 minutes by car).
The complex entrance is accessed via 4 steps or ramp. The apartment is on the elevated ground floor which is down a flight of stairs (approx 14 steps), there are 2 lifts which give access to all floors and the pool area and the garage.
The complex has a large shared pool (heated) and large grass area. There are also shaded areas for getting out of the direct sun. The complex is walled which shelters it from the wind if it happens to be blowing.
The lagoon beach is no more than 500 metres away as is the ferry to the Atlantic beach, which takes no more than 10 minutes. The lagoon beach has calm water and a decent size sandy beach. The Atlantic Beach is golden sand which (Isla Amenos) stretches for 5 miles. Tavira also boosts some gorgeous beaches. The Ria Formosa which runs inland of the Atlantic coast can be viewed (through 180 degrees) from the apartment balcony and can be explored as you head either east or west from Fuzeta.
There are 5 of the top golf courses in easy driving from Fuzeta (15-20 minutes drive) - for example Benamor, Quinta de Ria, Quinta de Cima and newly opened Monte Rei. A bit further on is a hillier course at Castro Marim. Approximately 50 minutes bring you to the courses of the Western Algarve (Vale de Lobo, San Lorenzo, Quinta de Lago and the courses around Villamoura).
Special interest holidays:
As well as swimming and walking, there are many roads suitable for exploring by bike and the terrain offers more challenging mountain bike routes. There are many other activities available along the Eastern Algarve - water sports such as windsurfing, kite surfing areas are within easy reach of Fuzeta. The lagoon at Fuzeta is used for kitesurfing by a local company - another company operates out of Cabanas in Tavira - more details are available. If you like to explore the natural habitat and watch birds then this apartment allows you to observe the wildlife on the Ria Formosa from close quarters and is an excellent base for walking. There is also a wetland at Castro Marim.
Faro airport is some 35 minutes from Fuzeta by road. Hire cars and taxis are available from the airport - a taxi costs approximately 25 Euros (these are also available locally). A car is not actually necessary to enjoy the sites of the Eastern Algarve as the train station is 5 minutes walk away, giving access to as far as Lagos in the western Algarve, via Faro and Olhao, and to the Spanish border in the east via Tavira. Fares are low and excellent value.
The local shops (Loja Fresco supermarket 3 minute walk) and markets in Fuzeta are a short walk away, as are numerous cafes and restaurants. The two nearest towns are Olhao, (10 minutes away by train), and Tavira (20 minutes by train). Faro is only a little further, the old town is worth a visit. The visitor centre for the Ria Formosa is near Olhao which identifies how to explore this Nature Reserve. Due to the apartment's position, from the balcony one can see many species of birds feeding.
Fuzeta has all the amenities that you need - the nearest cafe is 1 minute from the apartment, the bank and cash point 2 minutes. There are a variety of restaurants and a seafront bar -more details can be found in the folder in the apartment. Being a fishing town there are a few fish restaurants. If you love to shop (window or for real) then more serious shopping can be found at Ria Shopping in Olhao and closer to Faro (Forum Algarve off the N125). There is also a cinema at the Forum which shows English films. Staying local there is a market the first Thursday of the month, a flea market the 1st Sunday of the month and a regular Saturday market in Olhao. The closest supermarket - 3 minute walk up from the apartment has a good selection available and sells fresh bread in the mornings. Olhao boosts bigger supermarkets. As well as the coastal towns mentioned there are some inland towns worth exploring which give a different view of the Eastern Algarve (Estoi, Sao Bras, Sagres).
