The apartment was spotless and had everything we needed for a relaxing break. We thoroughly enjoyed the roof-top Jacuzzi. Marta was very helpful and answered any questions that we had. We hope to visit again in the near future. Wendy

Alvaro ,Ians local agent, was on hand to meet us on arrival and took his time to make sure we were familiar with the unit. The property was as good as described and was extremely clean and well maintained. The private roof top was an added bonus and a great place to watch the sunset over a cold beer or glass of red.The apartment was located a 3 minute walk from a number of local cafe bar restaurants that all boasted fresh fish and other fare every day. A local super market was 150 metres up the road. There is also a train station 5 minutes away that took us to all the surrounding towns for very low fares. We stayed for 16 nights in Fuseta and did not even consider renting a car. Overall our first trip to Portugal was a delight. We thank Ian and Alvaro for their wonderful customer service and I would not hesitate to rebook if I have the opportunity to return again and certainly would recommend this apartment to all who are considering Fuseta as a holiday destination.
