About the property

Apartment in Fuseta, near Tavira. The beach is only a five minute walk and with many other amenities close by .

Very spacious and stylish air conditioned one bedroom apartment in Fuseta near Tavira , one of four in the block. The apartment has been furnished to a very high standard and will make a perfect base for any holiday. There is a tv with a multi channel box for watching the very latest films , box sets and all sports channels including Sky.Location is perfect,close to the traditional main square where there are plenty of cafes and restaurants and also easy walking distance to the ferry which will take you to the wonderful Fuseta island or you can walk a few metres more and have access to the mainland beach. The apartment is also only five minutes away from one of the two train stations in Fuseta so a car is not necessary .Fuseta is a traditional Portuguese fishing village where the fishermen bring their catch in daily to be sold at the local market and within minutes you can then be eating the fish at one of the riverside barbecues. Close by to Fuseta are the larger towns of Ohlao and Tavira and slightly further away Villa Real de San Antonio all of which can be accessed by the two trains stations in Fuseta. Golf, horse riding , kite surfing, wind surfing and sailing are just some of the activities available nearby. Spain is only a thirty minute journey by car .

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.

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!
