About our home

This is a modern and spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with wifi and air conditioning in all rooms. Five floor to ceiling windows give stunning views of the Ria Formosa, Armona Island and the Atlantic Ocean. As the Ria Formosa is tidal, the view from the balcony changes throughout the day but is always mesmerizing. Fuzeta is a fishing village which is unspoilt by tourism and combines good service with incredible value for money for dining out. A ferry or a water taxi gives easy access to Armona island and other islands in the area. There are also trips for dolphin or sea horse watching as well as for fishing.
Fuzeta is 50 km from the Spanish border and 25 km from Faro. A railway station is only a few minutes walk from the apartment and a reliable and economical train service gives easy access to the Spanish border, the western Algarve or to Lisbon and beyond.

This is our holiday home so a non-simultaneous swap is possible - or a swap for points.

As this is a holiday home, there will be a charge of 125€ to prepare the apartment, for our key holder to 'meet and greet' you and to clean after your stay.

Where is it?


Buzzy restaurants
So many to choose from offering superbly priced food - especially if you enjoy fish!
Cool bars
Bars a plenty - visit a few and you'll find a favourite!
Cozy cafés
Superb coffee in all bars and restaurants - though not necessarily 'cozy' as this is one of the sunniest areas of Portugal. A coffee at the beach bar in the town - or on Armona Island is great.
Bit of culture
Tavira - the jewel in the crown of the eastern Algarve
Walks in the park
The Ecovia is part of the Ria Formosa. Stunning walks especially for birdwatchers.
Spot of exercise
Scenic walks on the beaches or the salt pans of the Ria Formosa
Day tripping
Easy to access - by road or train - the whole of the Algarve, or further north. Lisbon is only a couple of hours away by train. Or go east and cross over the river - by road or boat and visit Spain too.
