Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us stay in your super apartment - the best we have ever stayed in in Burgau. We've had fantastic weather and thoroughly enjoyed the pool and beaches(Castelejo was our favourite).A lot more eating out this year as Tomik(poolside snack bar/restaurant) such good value and excellent food(our teenagers loved it).We also enjoyed the Beach bar. Ana (property manager) and her team have been absolutely excellent-we were very grateful for responding so quickly and efficiently to our calls. Thank you.

Burgau is very special to our family and we hope to be back and would definitely like to stay in your apartment again.

Excellent apartment with roof terrace

  • 5 of 5

I would thoroughly recommend this apartment. It is very well equipped, clean and cared for. Within easy walking of the Burgau beach and the many restaurants in the village. One of the best apartments we have stayed in. There are a number of good beaches nearby and many other facilities - so consequently an excellent holiday.

From the Owner

Our first family holiday in the western Algarve was in 1995 in a villa just outside Burgau. We all immediately fell in love with this area of Portugal,its unspoilt coastline,stunning beaches,friendly locals and excellent food. Over the years we have been fortunate to be able to holiday in many other destinations but we were always drawn back to the western Algarve and in particular Burgau,so we did not hesitate when we were able to buy off plan an apartment in the Domus Iberica resort. Since purchasing it we have spent many happy holidays there with our family and friends.We are very proud of our holiday home and of the high standard to which we maintain it.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Faro at 80 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : in the village at 500 Metres Nearest Golf : Parque de Floresta at 2 Kilometres Nearest Train : Lagos at 8 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A22 at 6 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : plenty in the village at 500 Metres Nearest Beach : Burgau at 500 Metres Car: recommended

The apartment is situated on the edge of the Costa da Vicentina National Park and is ideally situated for exploring the 150 km of unspoilt coastline and its impressive choice of beaches.The south facing beaches are more sheltered and ideal for younger families whilst the western beaches (approx 20 mins drive )are more rugged and exposed and are very popular with surfers.The beautiful clean,sandy,blue flag beach in Burgau is about a 10 minute walk through pretty cobbled streets lined with white washed houses and is ideal for younger children.Spectacular coastal walks towards Luz/Lagos to the east and Salema to the west can be enjoyed from the apartment.In the spring the cliff tops are clothed with a wonderful array of spring flowers and the area is also very popular for bird watching.

Burgau has an excellent choice of restaurants to suit all budgets and tastes .Burgau beach bar is very popular . Here you can enjoy your meal or cocktails whilst watching the sunset! Most of the restaurants serve typical Portuguese dishes and locally caught fish will be found on the menu.Children are always welcome.For those wishing to eat in we recommend buying fresh fish from the fish van which stops at the cross roads in the mornings. A real treat on the BBQ! For everyday items there are 3 small supermarkets in the village and fresh bread can be brought or ordered from the bakery. There is an excellent independent wine shop and the owner will always make recommendations. We have always found the wines to be of good quality and very competitively priced.

The apartment is approx 1 hour drive from Faro airport (nearly all motorway) and approx 3 hour drive from Lisbon airport.We have on many occasions flown into Lisbon and enjoyed exploring the city before travelling down to Burgau.

There is a reliable taxi firm in the village and a regular bus service to Luz and Lagos from the village so it is possible to spend a holiday in Burgau without a car but if you wish to explore the many beautiful beaches then a car is recommended.

The tourist office in Burgau is ideal for booking trips to local attractions such as the water parks and the Zoo and they will arrange for a coach to pick you up.There is also a local surf school pick-up point in the village.

The apartment is on the western edge of the village and is 2 km from the larger resort of Praia da Luz and 10 minute drive from Lagos,a very attractive busy historic town and marina.Here you will find a wide selection of shops and restaurants ,several music bars ,a jazz and blues club and a choice of larger supermarkets.

Boat trips to the grottos and dolphin watching trips (thoroughly recommended) are available from the marina as are deep sea fishing trips.The apartment is also within easy travelling distance of Sagres ('the end of the world' and famous for its sunsets),the Roman spa town of Monchique and the surrounding Monchique mountains and Silves situated on the Rio Arade and famous for its well preserved castle.

From the Owner

From the apartment you are only a short stroll away from Burgau ,a typical traditional Portuguese fishing village which has retained its unique charm.Spectacular cliff and countryside walks can be enjoyed from the apartment . Burgau beach is a beautiful Blue flag beach but many other fabulous beaches are only a short drive away.
