Wonderful views across the Ria Formosa from sunrise to sunset. Watching the incoming tides, the wading birds, spoonbills and ibis feeding, flamingoes in flight, the lights of the fishing boats at night and the reflection of the moon on the incoming tide.
We never tired of viewing the ever changing vista.
We had, in previous years, enjoyed other apartments in Formosa Village but the outside space available in the Penthouse apartment is so spacious, that it more than compensates for the smaller kitchen and second bedroom.
Also we were able to benefit from the excellent access to wifi and tv which was much appreciated as we were there for 6 weeks.
Some of the furniture was a little tired but overall the apartment was very comfortable.
We enjoyed it so much we have already rebooked for next year.
This apartment is absolutely superb. We booked it for a week in May and were really impressed. It is lovely and clean and has a huge lounge/dining room. On entering the apartment it is so bright and airy with a huge lounge stretching right to the panoramic windows with excellent views. It is lovely to sit out on the large terrace area and have a drink or meal and overlook the estuary. There is also a private rooftop area, but we never used this, as the terrace was adequate for our stay. There are lifts straight up to the apartment and a short walk 5-10 minutes takes you to the restaurants/bars and town area. Fuseta has a lot of fresh fish restaurants, but also a couple of good quality tapas places like the Mo De Cima and the Paiol. Would recommend both of these. We loved it here, it is the old Portugal. The apartment was lovely and peaceful while we were there and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, to the extent that we would love to return. It had everything you needed and I can honestly say that this was one of the best apartment rentals we have had in a long time.
