Fogo Island real estate guide & listings for sale
Fogo Island is wonderful for those who like quiet surroundings, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour.
Fogo Island is an extraordinarily good town for driving. It is especially convenient to park. Many of the houses for sale in this town are located in places that are not very conducive to walking since meeting daily needs is very impractical on foot.
Single detached homes are the most common housing type, representing almost all buildings in Fogo Island, whereas the remainder are mainly duplexes.
