                                      Good place to stay

                                      4 of 5
                                      The apartment was very nice and comfortable, finished to a high standard, was very well equipped with a lovely view and was private enough. The facilities are very good and it was good to have the secure underground car park too. We really liked the swimming pool and area although more sun loungers were required as it was busy which was the only down side. Perfect place to relax and holiday. Fuseta is a traditional Portuguese fishing town with lovely beaches, restaurants and super new tapas bars. We missed not having access to sport channels on the tv and would have taken another device to watch if we had known that was not available.

                                      5 of 5
                                      As soon as we walked into the apartment, we knew we had made the right choice. It was very spacious and modern and also very clean. Ian the owner was there to greet us and show us around, he was very helpful. He also left us water, beer and wine which was well received. The private roof terrace was lovely, with such amazing views. We hired a car but we hardly used it as everything, shops, restaurants, bars and the beach were only a few minutes walk away.We really enjoyed our stay in Fuseta and would definitely recommend this apartment to family and friends, as it has everything you need for a great holiday. A big thank you to Ian for everything. Alec & Christine

                                      Amazing property in Fuseta

                                      5 of 5
                                      We were thrilled with our stay in Fuseta. The property was exceptionally well kept, clean, and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The view from this apartment is amazing, and it only added to our peaceful escape. It is also well located, and getting to any part in southern Portugal is only a matter of a few hours' drive. If we are ever back in Portugal, we will stay here again for sure!
