“Fantastic apartment in a truly unspoilt village with great views out to sea!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Fab apartment in Fuzeta, right on the front and with unspoilt views over the Ria Formosa. The patio area really makes the apartment stand out due to vast amount of space, we spent many afternoons sunbathing in complete privacy. One of the few apartments that isn't overlooked by any other property so very private. Also has an aditional roof terrace but not needed as the sun covers the patio area for most of the day. Lots of local restaurants selling fresh fish and this is a very traditional village, unspoilt by tourism, no English pubs here! Only 40 mins from Spanish border and 30 mins from Faro airport and can be accessed by rail, there is a station 100 meters from the apartment.

“Luxury at its Best”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed in the Penthouse Apartment in Formosa Village and I have to say I have never stayed anywhere that as come so near to being Perfect. The website pictures are accurate and everything it says is spot on. The apartment is fully equipped with everything you could possibly want in a home away from home and it is so spacious it as to be seen to be believed. Fuseta village is only small but certainly on the up and I hope it doesn't get spoilt and become too commercialised as this is the attraction of the place. From our very large balcony we could watch the ferries taking visitors over to Fuseta Island and back. We caught a taxi from Faro Airport to the resort and it cost 40 euro's however on our return to Faro we caught the train and this cost 2 euro and 10 cent, bit of a difference and a lot less stressful. There are 2 train stations in Fuseta (unbelievable for such a small village) and there is a train station 2 minutes walk from the apartment. We then caught a taxi to the airport and this cost 10 euro so my advice is to catch the train, it only takes 20 minutes and a lot cheaper. If I had to make any negative comment it is that the supermarket is a bit of a trek, 15 minutes from the apartment. We hope to return to Formosa Village next year as this was one of the most relaxing holidays we have had.

“Luxury + peace in a beautiful location”
Reviewed September 25, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

A fabulous and elegantly dressed penthouse apartment in a quiet and peaceful location.
Sea views from the enormous balcony and excellent location in relation to beach, restaurants, shops etc.

My partner (now fiancee as proposed on beautiful tranquil beach in fuzeta) and I traveled to the Algarve for a relaxing week break with minimal transport times, and we were not disappointed with the apartment or associated details as provided by the owner.

The apartment is decorated to a very high standard with a vast amount of space, 2 bedrooms with air-con, 2 amazing bathrooms, v. large open plan lounge area with dining table, sofas, TV, satellite, dvd etc. Kitchen contained all essential utensils and more.

What more can I say..... 2.45 mins flight from Luton, 30 mins in a taxi from Faro airport (~30 euros) and you're there!!!

Book now!!!!

Fuzeta is a wonderful small town with an amazing beach and lovely small shops and nice people and endless sunshine, what more could you want!
The apartment is large and new and clean and nicely decorated, having all the things you could need. It's best feature is that it is a penthouse so has an amazing view and also privacy. The communal pool is a nearby as is the beach! Great holiday in a great town and a great apartment.
