Enjoy your visit to the picturesque village of Fuseta in comfort by staying at this newly built private condominium complex with outdoor pool. The spacious two bedroom apartment, with sea views, is furnished to a very high standard and is well equipped with home comforts such as air con, dishwasher, dish and washing machine: there’s also a hairdryer and iron so you only need to pack your clothes and suntan cream!
There's also UKTV Channels and internet access to keep in touch with home or the office if needed.
The master bedroom has a king size double bed with en-suite and the second twin bedroom has a separate bathroom. Apartment is suitable/adaptable for all families as a sofa bed is available.
Fuseta is a traditional sleepy little fishing village just 30 minutes drive from the airport and is home to some of the best, unspoilt sandy beaches along the Algarvian coastline. The lagoon created by the birdwatchers paradise of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve makes it an ideal location for swimming or snorkelling; this added to the excitement of popping across to the Armona Island on a ferry boat makes it a big hit with the kids.
It’s an ideal base for a relaxing holiday as five minute walk takes you to the local shops, restaurants, daily fish markets, café bars and local beach. There’s a regular train service to nearby towns such as Tavira & Olhão or if you’re hiring a car* you can pop over to Spain in under an hour.
As it is not a major tourist resort your euros will go twice as far!

Fiesta is a great place for a winter holiday. The apartment had everything my brother and I needed, it more than met our expectations. We have no hesitation in commending both the apartment and Lusoliving/Homeaway. We will definitely consider the same next year, didn't need a car, the railway station was only 100 metres away which gave us access to the whole of the Aigarve and to Ayemonte in Spain after a 1.8 euro ferry trip.
We are returning to this apartment in Fuseta in July this year (this will our third time to stay in the same apartment) Its exactly as described, spacious, comfortable , well maintained. Its home from home. All mod cons. There are only four of us but apartment can easily accomodate 6 as there are 2 fold up beds, in addition to the king bed in master bedroom and twin beds in second room. Fuseta is a beautiful place for a holiday. We love that the pool garden area is secure (with 2 young children) we love having the beach close to the apartment and the option of going on the ferry to the island and another beautiful beach. Great choice of restaurants close by and if you feel the need to go further, maybe go to Faro for the day, the train is close by.
My family and I spent our holidaysin Fuseta last year. What a little gem ! We had been in the Algarve before but never on the Eastern side and we thought it was fantastic. All of the sunshine and beautiful beaches but less crowded. The apartment was really spacious and had all the mod cons, really clean, tastefully decorated. We were met by a lovely lady who gave us all the information we needed to make our stay a memorable one. we had her number should we have needed anything (which we didn't). We are family of 5 but this apartment could sleep7, There were 2 extra fold out beds and a sofa bed in the living area. We had 2 teens and a 9 year old. They all loved it. The pool area has lovely garden , is gated and very safe . Childrens pool area too so great for little ones. Less than 5 min stroll to beach and you had the option of taking the ferry to the island beach.
Well stocked supermarket in the town, lovely restaurants (reasonable), daily fish market if you felt like cooking, and one of the best things is that the train station is so accessible. We had hired a car but really not necessary. The train can take you to Faro, Tavira and anywhere along the Algarve you may wish to go.
All going well we plan to go back in 2013. Would definitely recommend to a friend and we have done. Another family we know went in late August and loved it too.
Fuseta dates back to 1572, and is known for its quaint cubic style houses with their terraces and curious chimneys, a trademark of this part of the Algarve.
Fuseta has two beaches. The first, which the locals call “Praia dos Tesos” is a small beach on the mainland. Families with small children will appreciate it as being in the lagoon there are no waves and very safe. It is within 5-10 min walk of Formosa Village complex.
Fuseta's other beach is on Ilha de Armona, the small island separating the lagoon from the Atlantic Ocean. You can also swim here on the lagoon side without waves. However, the 'real' Fuseta beach is on the Atlantic side. Children love the exitement of going over on the ferry boat which runs regularly over to the islands.
Fuseta offers a great base for your holiday and as it is not a traditional tourist resort your euros will go much further especially in the fantastic restaurants where a full meal for two with wine would be in the region of 25 euros.
The neighbouring town of Olhão has a famous fish & shellfish market and old elegant merchant's homes with wrought iron balconies, carved stonework and tile decorations.
Nearby there is the beautiful Roman town of Tavira centred along the River Gil that splits the town in two or going in the opposite direction you have Faro, the capital of the Algarve. Both are approx 20 min drive and offer great shopping, and a mix of old and new with the modern Marina that lies in Faro right next to the Old Town.
As Fuseta lies close to the Spanish border a highly recommended day out is to the fantastic city of Seville . With outstanding architecture at every turn the best way to see the city is in a traditonal horse and carriage. You will need an early start to see the Maria Luisa Park, Plaza da Espana, the largest Gothic Cathedral in the world plus the gardens of the Royal Alcazar Palace.
