Guestbook comments from the owner

Wir haben 2 herrliche Wochen in dieser wunderbaren Wohnung mit ihrem großen Balkon verbracht. An der Ausstattung fehlt absolut nichts. Es war alles sehr gepflegt mit wöchentlichem Wäschewechsel und geschmackvoll. Als nette Geste empfanden wir die bereitstehende Erstversorgung. So bald möglich werden wir wiederkommen.

Im "Capri" haben wir sehr gut gespeist, wenn wir nicht zu Hause gekocht haben.


Elegant, well-equipped apartment

We spent 2 glorious weeks in this beautiful apartment with its large balcony. There was absolutely nothing missing with the facilities.

It was all very well maintained with a weekly change of linen and nicely ecorated.

We thought the waiting welcome pack was a nice touch.

We will be back as soon as possible .

We have dined very well at The "Capri", if we did not want to cook at home.

Fantastic apartment in a front line beach location

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful modern spacious apartment with everything you could want from a holiday home. A private terrace with barbecue for the fresh fish from the local market. Air condition in all rooms. A number of restaurants on the doorstep overlooking the estuary and its stretch of beach. Definitely going back.

Nice place to be

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended! This apartment is truly home with all the accessories you could possibly require, also tidy and clean. It is well located, very close to all the amenities and within easy walking distance to the beach, ferry etc. We have had a very good time with two children for 2 weeks in July. Especially, we appreciated very much the kind contact in advance for preparation as well as in place when we arrived. We have enjoyed the terrace each morning for breakfast. Fuseta is a nice place to stay for a family, not to big but everything around. We even did not miss a car and preferred the local train instead.

Comfortable modern apartment near the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week in Algarve. The apartment is really comfortable and well equipped. The most important is that you feel at home there. A kitchen area is huge and has everything you might need. We spent most of the time around a large table on a spacious terrace. All rooms have air conditioners that was extremely important in August. There are two or three umbrellas and a lot of beach towels. Fuseta is a pretty quiet fishing village, especially in the first half of the day. However, there were pretty loud concerts during 4 out of our 8 evenings. On top, a road under bedrooms' windows is pretty noisy, so leaving windows open at night was not an option. However, it was not really needed as nights were still hot and air conditioners worked properly. The windows block noise pretty well and we had an excellent night sleep. Besides concerts, a small bazaar and some restaurants Fuseta has nothing to offer for entertainment. However, we did not expect miracles and planned some trips around. The best nearest nice place is a small town Tavira, just 15 km away. We also had trips to the West coast (ca 1,5 h drive) and a picturesque shore near Lagos and Alporchinhos (50 min - 1h 15min drive depending on the place). Spain is only 40 km away and we visited also Seville (ca 2 h drive). The downside was an extremely high temperature - ca 38 C. Nevertheless, it was great. In my opinion, a car is a must to enjoy the place. Travelling is one thing, but the other is shopping for food. Fuseta's main supermarket is a couple km away. We also tried local fish market and some bigger stores in other towns nearby. To note, car rental prices are really attractive in Portugal and might be as low as 10 EUR per day for VW Polo. The last but not least is the ocean. The nearest beach is quite ok if you do not have time, but I do recommend taking a ferry to an island to get to the real ocean. It will take just 10-15 min including a walk to the wharf. Nevertheless, make sure that you return before 6:30 pm, otherwise you might have to spend up to an hour in a queue during high season.

To summarize: I do recommend this outstandingly comfortable and spacious apartment both as a springboard for an exploration of Algarve and Andalusia, as well as a nice quiet harbour for enjoying the ocean and vhino verde.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Highly recommend! This apartment is truly home from home with all the accessories you could possibly require. The apartment is in a great place, very close to all the amenities and within easy walking distance to the lovely beach. We had a very relaxing stay with our two children for a 1 week in July, just before the school holidays. We spent time on the terrace enjoying the early evening sun.... Just missing a jacuzzi!

Wonderful apartment! close to the beach, with everything you need for a perfect relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks (21/6 - 4/7) in Ian's wonderful apartment

From the moment we booked with Ian everything ran smoothly, plenty of information about what to expect, and the apartment is as described and the photos show the apartment as it is. Alvaro meets you and explains how everything works aircon etc and facts about the area...the lovely open plan lounge, kitchen and dinner with double patio doors on to the spacious terrace. The fly screens on all doors/Windows were a fabulous touch, meaning no bugs are able to come in.. No mosquito plugs needed! A bonus..The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of nice crockery, cutlery, place mats, serving dishes and glasses (We were a party of two couples and we always had plenty of glasses etc even when the dishwasher was on).

The two bathrooms are also modern and you get plenty of lovely fluffy towels and flannels including large beach towels. We used the BBQ, again easy to use with good utensils.

The Beach is a short walk along the front, it has lovely soft sand and very clean, Ian provides umbrellas and cool boxes/icepacks for you to use and a couple of beach seats/ mats, there are Sun lounges and parasols for hire in front of the beach bar/cafe if you need added comfort.

We had most of our evening meals in Fuseta in the square, don't expect posh restaurants, there aren't any! There are plenty of friendly bar/restaurants that put their tables in the square to eat. The fish is all amazing wherever you go and all displayed in cabinets for you to choose, it all comes straight off the fishing boats and was some of the best fish we have ever tasted. If you don't like fish, the pork, lamb and chicken is also very good.

Portuguese wines both white/red/rose are all cheap to buy and very good. We were paying on average about €60 euros for bread/olives/pates for starters then main course, puddings,wine for the ladies and beers for the men

Fuseta is not a main tourist area, it's more like a small village in England. Butcher, baker, super market, mini market, fish market and fresh produce daily, and a small shop selling buckets/spades/etc.

We found everyone very friendly, if you like a holiday away from the tourist traps, with a lovely beach, good food that is cheap to buy and a wonderful accommodation, this is the place for you.

There are nice places to visit if you want to, Tavira, Faro and Estoi or a boat to the islands.

Thank you Ian, for the use of your wonderful apartment it was definitely 5*

Lovely modern apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful apartment has everything, and more.

It is so well equipped, they really have thought of everything to make for the perfect stay. We were very pleased to have the welcome pack (which included wine) as we had a long journey!

There are lovely local restaurants very near by, and a gorgeous sandy beach.

I will definitely be booking again, thank you.
