Welcome to our space! Because the moment you step into it, it also becomes a little yours. The house was furnished to be a comfortable family house where we would go and spend our holidays, since time is scarce and we do not always have time, we invite you to enjoy it for us:) It is in the village centre, near restaurants and bars, grocery shops and supermarkets and 5 min. walk from the beach or boat to the island. Take care of it with love like we would do. We are grateful!
Since knowledge doesn't occupy any space, here are some bits and pieces (referencing our dear old wikipedia):
*Fuseta, dates back to 1572, when it was then referred to as Fozeta, a name that is derived from the diminutive for foz (referring to river mouth);
*Fuseta first appeared on the books during the Portuguese Age of Discovery. Gaspar Corte-Real, a nobleman and resident of this area, claimed to have discovered the land now known as Newfoundland in 1500.
*By 1790 the settlement included 90 fishermen and six fishing boats, which fished in the waters around Laraxe between April and September. From October to the end of Easter these fishermen would fish around Setúbal, and unloaded in Lisbon.
Until today, Fuseta remains indeed small, but full of life. Concerts and events fill the area in July, August and even beginnings of September. On the second Sunday of each month there is a flea market with crafts, antique or just plain old stuff.
Armona Island has a unique ecosystem and a lot of space if you like your privacy in the beach. It is also recognized has naturist beach (further right in the island). Also great for walks, or collecting beautiful seashells!
The building you will be located is fairly recent, it was decorated to be more a family house but we have decided to open it up! The person that will receive you when you arrive is Idina, she is kind and speaks foreign languages.
Because our house had a lot of decorative elements and personal belongings we have kept some of them in the upper closets or in the bigger living room furniture. For now, they are closed with chain and locker, in due time they will be kept somewhere else and emptied. For now, please understand the situation. Thank you.
If you need any help you can call me (anytime), or Idina.
