My two sisters and mother stayed here for two weeks in February and had chosen Portugal as our destination to escape from a few weeks of our Canadian winter. Our experience was a very positive one from start to finish. The booking process was smooth and we were very thankful for the excellent and timely communication with the owners, Chris and Alan. This apartment is very well equipped, is spacious, quiet and very comfortable. The location is excellent - very close to the train station, the walking trails, grocer and the centre of Fuzeta. We love this area of the Algarve and would definitely encourage anyone who has been thinking of visiting to do so.

“Our first trip to the Algarve staying in a fabulous apartment.”
Reviewed 8 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Everything went really well right from the arranged transfer from the airport to the apartment and back again at the end of the holiday.
The apartment is modern, well appointed and very comfy. Breakfast on the balcony with super views out over a lagoon and sandy island to the Atlantic beyond. Just as shown on the website. Couldn't fault it!
We visited Tavira and Olhao for two days out by local train. Very straightforward, cheap fares and enjoyed both places for their own particular charm. We are also quite keen walkers and walked from the apartment to Fuente Santa for a splendid lunch. On another day we caught the ferry to the island for a three mile hike along the sandy beach to the village at the end for another excellent lunch. Crashing Atlantic waves on one side, a peaceful lagoon on the other and not a soul to be seen!
What took us both by surprise, and a very welcome one, was the low cost of meals. We didn’t skimp on anything and ate out every evening at one of the harbourside restaurants and still came back with a significant chunk of holiday money. Try a plate of freshly caught fish, grilled over a wood fire, bbq style, while you indulge yourself with some local wine and a starter. Not to be missed!
A small supermarket just a short walk away was all we needed for things like bread and milk, cartons of which we discovered in with the vegetables?!
It really was a splendid holiday and we are very likely to arrange another visit next year.

“Perfect gateway from hustle and bustle...”

We stayed at this beautiful apartment for a week with two children aged 10 and 7 during Easter break. The apartment is very spacious and ideally located from all major tourist attractions and some nice beaches. The owners Alan and Christine use this place as their second home so you can feel all the personal touches and it’s so well equipped which took us by surprise. They were always prompt answering any queries which we have had.

We arrived around 10.20pm on Sunday evening and British Airways lost our luggage like many other passengers. Our holiday did not commence well from the Faro Airport but we had forgotten our grief after arriving at the Fuzeta Resort. The key holder Cary bought some essentials for us so that we did not have to worry about bread, tea, coffee and milk in the morning. We hired a car from the Airport as usual but it was not necessary because the train station is close from the house.

We visited few places which kids absolutely loved it specially Zoomarine theme park, Fiesa Sand City, & Tavira Island. We also visited Ayamonte a Spanish town which is only 45 minutes’ drive from the apartment. There are many restaurants in Fuzeta town which are reasonably priced and in general Portugal is value for money so it does not matter where you actually eat.

We have been extremely lucky with hot weather because in April the temperature was hovering between 22-30 degrees. No wonder Algarve region is one of Europe’s sunniest places and many Brits and French have made this region as their home. We will not hesitate to come back to this awesome apartment which we felt like home.

“wonderful apartment in fabulous location overlooking the sea.”
Reviewed 20 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We have stayed in this apartment twice now and will definitely be staying again. It is modern and fully equipped with all you need for a great holiday. Very clean and like a top class hotel but all your own! The location is ideal, with lovely views of the beach and coastline. The pool complex is spotless and now heated, so can be used all year round. Great cycle and walking routes and an easy walk to the village centre of Fuzeta, which has a great range of places to eat and drink. Ideally situated to explore the Algarve. We loved being able to have breakfast on the balcony in the sun, even in February! We liked the thought that had gone into providing everything you might need for your holiday, well organised and welcoming. Even parking was easy, with plenty of car parking available right outside the apartments. We would highly recommend this apartment for a fab holiday.

“Could be the perfect holiday...”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just back from a very enjoyable two weeks in Fuzeta staying at this apartment. There was four of us in our party, two adults and two kids, and we found the apartment to be very well equipped with everything you could reasonably need for our stay. As the description says, there is air conditioning in both of the bedrooms and the lounge/kitchen which was very welcome on some of the hotter nights. The balcony has a sea view and is perfect for enjoying breakfast or a late night drink. There are two pools just over the road which are ideal for cooling off. Even though we were there for the first two weeks in August, there was never a shortage of loungers around the pool.
In our opinion, the apartment is very well situated. A short and easy walk (about 10-15 minutes) into town means that you enjoy both the peace and quiet while being near to the train station and a good selection of restaurants.
Fuzeta itself is a lovely town. Friendly people, and a good selection of places to eat. Prices are very reasonable for both food and drink, we often found ourselves very pleasantly surprised when the bill arrived. If you like fish you will be in heaven here, it’s widely available, very fresh, very tasty and extremely good value. The local mini-markets and the larger super-market on the far side of town are also very cheap and well stocked. (The nearest one being just over the footbridge near to the Fuzeta-A train station).
A few final things. The owners, Alan and Chris, were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Very responsive to any questions, totally honest and reliable. The local contact, Cary, who lives in the apartment below is also on hand for any problems or issues (not that we had any at all). Finally, Peter, who is available for stress free airport transports will provide you with loads of useful local info during the journey. Thoroughly recommended.
