A very enjoyable stay in Fuseta for 8 days with lovely accommodation

4 of 5
We have travelled to Portugal every year for the last 30 years; we visited Fuseta for the first time in February. Accommodation excellent. Beautifully appointed and in an ideal position for eating out locally on the front. Location: Unusual for us as the views were across the creek and then the lagoon as opposed to directly on the seafront. This afforded some lovely walks, especially if you are interested in wild life. Ideally situated for access to local restaurants and shops. A mere 5 minute walk will take you to lovely beach bar with magnificent views. Equally, a 5 minute walk away you can pick up the local train to nearby towns. Tavira is well worth visiting. Eating out was a revelation! It has been many years since we have been away on holiday where the food in restaurants is very inexpensive and invariably local produce (charcoal grilled in front of you) with the obvious choice local fish. Wines and beers are also excellent value for money. There are no "posh" restaurants to tempt you so your euros will go a long way! Fuseta is a charming and very traditional fishing village well worth visiting. The apartment was extremely comfortable and beautifully furnished. Only negative for us as a couple was the view from the lounge terrace was a little restricted so there was only one spot where we could sit to overlook the creek/lagoon etc. There is a beautifully laid out roof terrace with excellent views but it is accessed by leaving the apartment and going up two flights of stairs. We are in our 60s and didn't trust ourselves to come back down after one too many glasses of wine up there! One small recommendation to the owner: the train timetable was very out of date which we discovered on arrival at the station and had an hour to kill. It didn't faze us because we enjoyed coffees in the "square" at ludicrously low prices in this day and age. We would like to thank the owners for their excellent support throughout the booking including Alvaro to welcome us and arrange transport back to the airport.

Return To Our Holiday Paradise

5 of 5
We're beginning to lose count of the number of times we have returned to this holiday haven! Everything about the cottage is just perfect with everything you could wish for in this cosy cottage for two - there's even a TV with UK channels (though why anyone would want to watch TV when you have such a beautiful hillside setting to enjoy is beyond us) and Wi-Fi. The tasty Welcome Pack that Joan (the perfect host) provides means that you don't even have to leave the cottage for the first couple of days so you can immediately start to unwind and relax by the wonderful pool and enjoy the lovely peaceful gardens. When you are ready to explore it's just a few minutes drive to Moncarapacho which has a range of good restaurants or travel a couple of miles further to Fuseta with its great seafood eateries - the cottage is a great base for exploring the pretty villages and towns of the eastern Algarve. The only problem with this place is having to leave at the end of your stay - it never gets any easier to drive away and we can't wait to return in July.

Great house , ideal location

5 of 5
Had a great stay at this house ( 2nd visit ), overall clean and tidy with everything that you need . House is more than adequate for a holiday away from home , area has plenty to do for all the family . Owners are most welcoming and gave all the information on the house that was needed, advised just to get in contact if there was a problem, there was none with this house. Will definitely be back.
