The apartment boasts window views over the lagoon & sea. With access to unspoilt areas of natural beauty and only 30 minutes from Faro airport. The apartment is only a couple of years old and is positioned on a development of 30 apartments and 20 town houses built to very high specifications with a quality finish. A private tiled garden with sun loungers & table and chairs, two spacious bedrooms, one with large en-suite, open airy living area with dining area and fully equipped kitchen, the apartment has everything you need for a great stay in this undiscovered region of the Algarve. The local town is a 10 minute walk away and the bigger towns of Olhao and Tavira are within easy reach by either train or car.
The traditional fishing village of Fuzeta is not over commercialised and is truly laid back and chilled. Constant sea views of the the Fuseta Ria National Park (an ornithologist’s paradise) and the Isla de Armona from the lounge and around the grounds of the property are hard to beat. Set within a boutique development, it is quiet, luxurious and has a definite wow factor. 2 pools including a roof top infinity pool is available for use. There are several grocery shops and a fresh food market only 10 minute’s walk from the apartment and one of the best beaches a short ferry ride away. The apartment has air conditioning throughout, massive floor to ceiling windows and a secure video door entry access system. The private garden at the back allows you to enjoy the almost continuous Portuguese sun.
We looked around the Algarve for a place that boasted fantastic beaches, somewhere that wasn't overdeveloped and still retained a bit of 'old Portugal' and was still family orientated. There is a marina and village with excellent, simple bars and restaurants with great seafood and seriously good prices to boot. There is something for everyone here, several nearby quality golf courses, water parks, horse riding and water sports. We also regularly use the local train service and haven't hired a car for our last 3 stays. Faro Airport is mere 25 minute drive away.
