The view is incredible, the apartment is very comfortable, the owner is very charming and the neighbours who take care of the place provide a warm welcome. The apartment is very well maintained. We enjoyed the walks, the bicycle tours and the atmosphere of the village of Fuseta. Sure we will come back a next time.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

There is even a nice coffee machine, food processor, electric whisk, washing machine and drier and dishwasher. There is a good sized separate freezer and the fridge is family sized. The two bathrooms were very handy even though just the two of us. Very comfotable lounge with enough seating to spread out and TV programmes in all langages. the owner was superb to deal with - we had asked advance questions about sports facilities and she got back to us very quickly. We got address details well in advance and when we arrived a local agent met us and showed us everything - all very easy. Handover at the end just as easy. The appartment is first line overlooking the lagoon and a 2 min walk to the 'Fuzeta A' train station (5-10 mins to the 'Fuzeta' train station), 5-10 min to the large well stocked supermarket (open 7 days) and seconds/minutes to all the bars and restaurants. Even though we were out of season the supermarket was still open and sufficient bars and restaurants. The Fuzeta market has fruit, veg and fish. The owner has left a very useful pack of information in the flat with train times, local town maps, recommendations for restaurants - we tried all of them and were delighted with the quality of the food. We took the train to Olhao, Faro, Tavira and Vila Real de Santo Antonio - all very easy and cheap. The Algarve cycle trail passes through the town and we hired bikes in the town (Euro10 per bike for 24 hours) and cycled to Tavira and Santa Luzia . For details of the cycle trail see: http://ecovia-litoral-do-algarve.en.algarve-portal.com/external.php?url=http://euroveloportugal.com/en/route/eurovelo1 . There is also a good kitesurf school in Fuzeta (http://youralgarveadventure.com/kitesurfing-courses/) and it is possible Oct - June to launch off the beach in the town and kite throughout the lagoon - shallow, safe and always somewhere on-shore. The owner of the kite school had a coffee with us and gave us lots of good local information. Swimming in the lagoon is safe, when we were there an area was marked off for swimming. A ferry runs to the fuzeta island (Euro 10 for 2 people return) and as we were out of season we just called and made arranagements for when they would take us and collect us. This is a superb flat in an excellent location for an active or lazying on the beach kind of a holiday.
