About Adrian Greevy

We are the typical couple that for years have considered living in the sun. We finally did something about it in 2011 when the opportunity to take six months off work in 2012 came about. We searched for the right location and although we live in rural Somerset we opted for a town, much to our own surprise. Stayed from July to January and wanted something special and to see the heights of summer and depths of winter. Needless to say we were not disappointed and found the people of Tavira to be nothing but helpful and friendly. We now are able to share part of that experience with others .

Adrian Greevy purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Adrian Greevy chose Olhao region

Fuseta is a wonderful Portuguese fishing village with some of the best coastal and beach views on the Algarve. It has great communication links with Faro, Tavira and Olhao and the beauty of the Ria Formosa and the salt flats. An ideal place for cycling or bird watching. It has some up and coming restaurants and bars and is unspoilt by high rise holiday living.

What makes this apartment unique

great opportunities for sailing, fishing golfing.

Fuseta fans

  • 4 of 5

This was our sixth holiday in Fuseta and this property is superbly situated in a normally quiet street close to shops, cafes, restaurants and but a short walk from the beach, ferry and railway station. No need for a car. A spacious and stylishly furnished first floor apartment for 2 people. We had no noise or inconvenience from other occupants of the building or adjacent properties. However, the main square hosts rather loud 'musical' entertainment on public holidays which some may wish to avoid. The balcony is equipped with table and two chairs, but is overlooked and too small for loungers or sunbeds. The apartment is a five star base for a couple wishing for comfort and good facilities as a base and close to amenities , but who will expect to be out and active rather than in and sedentary during their holiday. Owners more than helpful.

An excellent Apartment in easy walking distance of Restaurant and Shops and the Train Station(s)

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay in Fuseta. Adrian and Suzanne met us on arrival and gave us a run through of the of the apartment's facilities. They then showed us the nearby Restaurants and shops.

Short train rides can take you to the various Towns along the Eastern Algarve. Tavira was our favourite, though we really enjoyed the Saturday morning Market in Olhao. If you like to eat fish, and seafood in general, then this part of the world is wonderful.

Lovely relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a weeks stay in this lovely apartment. It had everything we needed to make our stay completely trouble free. In a great location in the town centre with lots of restaurants and bars. The owners Adrian and Suzanne met us at the station and gave us a tour of the area which was very helpful. We used the bikes as there are plenty of cycle paths around the town with lots to see. Would highly recommend this apartment.

A fabulous apartment and helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in Fuseta and the owners were so helpful. This apartment is beautifully decorated and has everything you need. It is centrally located, near the supermarket and also the town square.

When we arrived the owner was there to greet us and had a few items in the fridge as we arrived in late. She then showed us around to the local restaurants and other amenities that we would require. We stayed in August and there was a festival on so we had great night life as well. This apartment is

a short walk to the beach and there is a short ferry ride to an island with long and unspoilt beach.

Fuseta is a fishing village and when we were there it was mainly locals and Portuguese on holidays who were all very friendly and helpful.

There are 2 train stations that will take you to Tavira for just over €3.00 return and which run nearly every hour. So a visit there is recommended. I would recommend this apartment and town to anyone and hope to return soon.

Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic new flat, everything you'll ever need and very stylishly put together. Great customer service - we were met by the owners, shown around the flat and the town, even though it was nearly midnight. They also live only a few km away if needed during the stay. Ice cold aircon was brilliant to come back to on days when the needle was nudging the late 30s.

Great town too, amazing beaches both in the town and Fuseta Island - a short (and cheap) ferry ride away. And amazing fresh fish in every restaurant for pennies. It's a working fishing town so very little tourist stuff, lovely, friendly locals and didn't see a single mozzie!
