The terrace on the first floor was great for evenings although the spiral staircase may be a slight problem for some. Fuseta is a quite fishing town the location of the house is great for restaurants and bars being in the centre of Fuseta and a 5 minute walk from the railway station which has excellent links to towns along the coast from Faro to Villa Real on the Spanish boarder. We were greeted by Isobel on arrival who was very helpful. I would recommend this property if you are considering staying in this area.

We enjoyed our evenings on the balcony enjoying dinner with a glass of wine. If I wanted to be picky my only criticism was that there was no broom or mop to facilitate keeping the floors clean by the time we reached day 8 the place needed a good sweep out. Also there was only one pot so making dinner was a little tricky! We felt very safe in the property and had no qualms leaving our valuables when we were out. The parking facilities were amazing. Overall I would have no hesitation of recommending the property to friends or family.
