About Jane

I first visited Fuseta on holiday 26 years ago. I instantly fell in love with the portugues, so generous, interesting and how they live a life of simplicity and stress free.

I was told by my the newly retired father, 'Don't wait until you are my age to make the move to Portugal, it's a wonderful life and should be enjoyed for as long as possible!'

That was 13 years ago!

I'm 52 now and just starting a new business locally.

Hopefully I can tell you about it when you visit!

Jane purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Jane chose Olhao region

This apartment is very clean and welcoming and is conveniently situated so therefore all amenities are within a few minutes walk.

The balcony provides ample space to sunbathe and enjoy a meal.

Comfortable and very well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable two-week stay in this apartment, which we found to be exactly as described in the listing and perfectly suited to our needs. The transfer from the airport was very straightforward and Jane, the owner, who had already been in regular contact by email, was waiting to welcome us - despite the comparative lateness of our flight. The apartment is modern, spotlessly clean and very quiet, and more than adequately equipped for a self-catering stay (although the close proximity of several dining-out options proved to be extremely diverting!). Fuseta is perfect for a break from the English winter weather as it appears to be very much a working town with most things seemingly open throughout the year, and rather like the apartment it had more or less everything we needed - including a decent sized supermarket and several smaller grocery stores, a number of cafes and restaurants and a beach bar all within easy walking distance of the accommodation. To get around we made regular use of the local train service (Fuseta has two easily accessible railway stations) and the Ecovia cycle track around the Ria Formosa - although when the sun shone it was generally tempting to simply stay put on the balcony or to occupy one of the benches in Fuseta overlooking the river! Overall, somewhere that can be thoroughly recommended to anyone looking for a quiet break in this part of the Algarve. Excellent!

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a great week in Fuseta. What a terrific find this apartment turned out to be. I would encourage anyone to read all the previous reviews as they are all 'spot on' with their comments and recommendations. The apartment is perfect for a couple. Great location, light, airy, spotlessly clean and well equipped. The UK TV via the internet was a bonus too, especially as Wimbledon was on during our visit. Jane was a pleasure to deal with by email and meet in person on our arrival. Many thanks Jane.

Perfect Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a month long stay in this comfortable, extremely clean and well equipped apartment. It is right in the centre of town and everything you need is within easy walking distance - perfect for a relaxing holiday. Fuseta has great beaches and excellent reasonably priced restaurants and a wonderful fresh fruit and fish market. Jane, the owner, is lovely, friendly and always available if you need any help. We will certainly be returning in the not too distant future.

Had a wonderful 12 days holiday in this comfortable, clean and well-equipped apartment with everything you need as a home from home, a sunny balcony, or a base for exploring. It is perfectly placed for day to day shopping - a baker a few steps away for fresh bread every day for breakfast, minimarkets very close as is the village square with its cafes, restaurants and other shops. A five minute walk gives access to the fish ,meat , fruit and vegetable market. We particularly enjoyed the restaurants/ barbecues next to the market . No car is necessary as the town beach, ferry to the extensive ocean beach, water taxis and railway station (for cheap and easy travel to Faro, Olhao, Tavira and Vila Real) are all within a few minutes walk; and pleasant longer walks are possible along the Ecovia cycle route to both east and west. Jane, the owner was available, prompt and vey helpful. This was our fourth holiday in Fuseta and we judged this apartment to be the best we have stayed in , would certainly recommend and hope to return ourselves in the future.

Perfect apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

An extremely well equipped, clean and comfortable apartment ideal for couples who want a central location close to all amenities, as well as their "home comforts". The kitchen has everything you need to self-cater in style, and the wi-fi and English TV was much appreciated on the cooler evenings. Despite it being off-season, we also spent some time on the lovely balcony which was a great sun trap. The view of the square is great for people watching, as are the numerous small bars and restaurants within easy walking distance – all very friendly and plenty of choice in their menus.

Fuseta itself is a lovely little town with everything you need close to hand, and perfectly fine without a car as the train service is very good for day trips – we went to Cabanas, Tavira, and Faro and on a previous visit have been as far as Albufiera for a day out. The Ecovia cycleway passes through the town and you can either hire bikes locally or go for long walks through the stunning countryside of the Ria Formosa. The town beach is lovely for walks (and winter-time paddles!) and has a nice waterfront café, and although we didn’t go over to the ocean beach on this holiday we have done in the past, taking advantage of the cheap and regular ferries to reach stunning sands with a variety of bars and other facilities.

Jane was great to deal with for initial enquiries by email and phone, booking us a very reliable and friendly transfer, meeting us on arrival, and a quick catch up when we met by chance during our stay. Overall a great holiday which we’d like to repeat in the not too distant future.

The Algarve region.

The Algarve is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Every year tourists in their thousands flock to the south of Portugal to soak up the sun and relax in this European paradise.

The Algarve is full of history and heritage. Still standing today are buildings and walls dating back to the Roman times. You are never far from a museum or guided tour to allow you to gain a more in depth insight into the evolution of this beautiful region.

The Algarve has the best all round climate in the whole of Europe and can boast more sunshine hours than California!

Average temperatures range from 16º-17º in January and February, 22º in October to 29º-30º or higher in August.

Temperatures never fall below zero.

With over 100 miles of beautiful cliff faces and extensive golden beaches, the Algarve offers one of the most dramatic coastlines in the world.

Visit the traditional Portuguese neighbouring towns and villages along the Algarve coastline. Direct access from the apartm to the "Ecovia", a cycling/walking track along the coast from Olhão all the way to the Spanish border, ideal for walkers, birdwatchers and cyclists.

FUZETA is a traditional Portuguese fishing village in the Ria Formosa in the Eastern Algarve.

The town which is located on the coast is known for its quaint cubed houses with their terraces and interesting chimneys and is a trademark of this part of the Algarve.

There is a newly renovated produce market situated on the quay which is open every morning, except Sundays, where you can buy all your fresh fish, meat, vegetables and fruit.

The fishermen go out early to catch the fish and is freshly sold at the local fish, meat and veg market. Choose what you want for lunch or dinner at one of the waterfront barbecues. My favourite is the BBQ mixed fish on the street at 'Casa de Corvo' or also known as “Rui’s”.

Fuzeta has the bonus of two beaches. The first is a small calm beach on the lagoon in the town itself and is literally only a 5 minute stroll. Available to rent are loungers and parasols. Enjoy a drink or snack at the beach café. Toilets and showers available.

The ocean beach is just across the lagoon on the Island of Armona and is easily reached by a short, cheap, frequent ferry ride. Sun loungers and parasols are available to rent at the cafes and in the summer there is music and dancing. The Ocean beach extends for miles so those seeking more peace and privacy can walk 10 minutes to have the beach almost to themselves. The taxi boats leave from the ferry point and will take you to any of the other islands further out. Check out the water sports, kite surfing and kayaking.

The square is the heart of Fuzeta and has many cafes selling tempting cakes and freshly cooked bread. There is a pizza bar, takeaways, many different restaurants for meat, fish and chicken or try one of the traditional Portuguese dishes. Smell the delicious chickens roasting on the BBQs on almost every street corner!

Fuzeta has a street market on the first Thursday of the month and a flea market on the second Sunday of the month.

Fuzeta has two train stations both within a 5 minute walk from the apartment. The single line runs along the coast and stops in most of the towns so if you are looking to visit the many charming and historical towns then it is very cheap and easy. Why not take the train to Villa Real San Antonio on the Spanish border or one of the popular towns on the west side.

OLHAO, Pronounced 'ol-ee-ow', the neighbouring town, is a busy traditional town with a gem of a waterfront and striking marina. Its fishing port is the most important in the Eastern Algarve and its fish market is the biggest.

Olhao also has many shops, restaurants and an entire summer festival devoted to sea food. The famous Sea Food festival takes place in August and includes live music.Ameijoas, the king of clams, is grown and eaten in abundance and is a 'must-try' entreé. It will be well worth a visit!Olhão is very Portuguese, very Algarvian and still un-touristic. The pedestrian shopping area winds in cobbled streets through the moorish-looking old town to the waterfront.

The markets are full of home grown fruit & veg as well as meat, deli and fish. The cafe's, bars and parks enjoy sparkling views out over the Ria Formosa lagoons.

From the pier, you can take a boat or ferry to the island villages and beaches of Armona, Culatra and Farol, all great day trips. Lots of information at hand here. The official visitor centre for the Ria Formosa nature reserve is just outside Olhão. Its worth a visit to see the restored tidal mill (of which there were once many in the Ria Formosa) and the bird life.

Olhao has a shopping mall (Ria shopping) with around 80 shops, a large supermarket, restaurants/bars and cinema. There is also kart racing in the underground car park here.
