Beautiful apartment with fantastic sea and beach views! AL18341



Updated: 19-Oct-2016
Burgau, Western Algarve - a delightful fishing village with a beautiful beach

This apartment is the owner's holiday home and has a rental license. There are sea and beach views from the South facing terrace which is ideal for breakfast in the morning sun or for afternoon tea! There is also a shared roof terrace with views over the village and beyond. With 1 double bedroom the apartment is suitable for singles or couples. The apartment is modern and immaculately presented with air-conditioning, heating, television, DVD and all kitchen equipment including a washing machine. There is a good supply of books, DVDs and games in the apartment as well as beach chairs. The apartment is in the heart of the village near the beach, and has the added advantage of its own car parking space. Shops and a few restaurants are within easy walking distance. Nightlife in Lagos is a short bus or taxi ride away. Several golf courses are nearby and there is a Sports Centre in the village with tennis, squash and a pool. A beauty salon and yoga classes are also available. The location is great for surfers and walkers; on a clear day from the cliff path near the village you can see almost the whole coast line of the Algarve!

"I should have communicated with you before to say we enjoyed your apartment very much. It was the best equipped that we have been to in Burgau."

"We just wanted to let you know how very much we enjoyed staying at your apartment in Burgau. We were very comfortable and loved the sea view, and the DVD collection!"

Perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely gorgeous time at this lovely apartment in Burgau. The apartment is spotless, well equipped and really homely. I was so happy to find all the bits I needed for a proper relax on the beach - chairs, brolly, towels. Pure bliss! Super comfy bed too, best sleeps I've had in years. :)

Burgau is lovely too - I don't think you can go too far wrong with restaurants, my stand out dish was red snapper at Os Amigos and for atmosphere we really enjoyed the hubbub at A Baracca (aka The Hut). Didn't have a bad meal anywhere.

This is a lovely place for a really relaxing holiday and definitely not for partying. We found it made sense to hire a car as transfers were costly and it was great to have the option for going for a couple of spins up west coast etc.

Looking forward to going back to Burgau in the future, would absolutely stay in this apartment again.

Ideal apartment for our first visit to Burgau

  • 5 of 5

This was our first but definitely not our last visit to Burgau and this apartment was ideal. Great view of the beach but a quiet residential location. Bar One and Matias authentic Portuguese restaurant are a short step away and both were excellent. The beach is not too far away down the hill and the uphill climb back is worth it to stay in this lovely apartment. Well-equipped with the essentials, comfortable and spacious enough for a couple. Great to breakfast on the balcony taking turns to have the view of the beach below. Peter and Margaret are excellent hosts. We can recommend Bar One and Matias - Lucy the waitress is very helpful and friendly. Restaurante Ancora is definitely *****. The food is special and Angelica and Daniel are a great brother and sister act providing excellent hospitality and amusing repartee. We can also recommend Caravela, Esquina and the Beach Bar. We wholeheartedly recommend this resort and this apartment!!!

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Burgau is the closest you could get to paradise - a beautiful beach which can be viewed from the balcony of this fabulous apartment, restaurants, beach bars, takeaways and if you're taking along a true Brit it even has the perfect pizza's and an Indian restaurant to keep him happy! This seems to be the place that the Portuguese go to holiday and I would say that is the best recommendation. Quiet and relaxing and no overcrowding on the beach even in July. This apartment is perfectly placed, roomy and equipped with everything you need. Spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. Breakfast on the balcony in the morning sun, listening to the waves is quite simply perfect. My partner said this had been the best holiday he's ever had and he didn't want to leave. We will definitely return - can't recommend these hosts or their apartment enough. Thank you it was wonderful.

Stunning view, from this spotless clean and well appointed one bedroom apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is on the second floor of a small block. After a long journey plus a one hour drive from the airport and struggling up stairs with 2 heavy suitcases and hand baggage we were in need of a rest. However a fiendishly difficult key and lock awaited us. When you are tired your brain does not function as well as it should but after a few blue words and "twiddling" the key in the lock for 5 minutes I eventually got the ****** door open!

Drawing back the curtains and opening the shutters revealed a fabulous view of Burgau bay. We were on holiday at last.

The apartment is generously equipped, spotlessly clean, with a very comfortable bed and pillows that make all the difference. The only negative is the very small balcony which means you really need to sit with the patio doors fully open and with the table and chairs in the living space. There is an sunbathing area on the roof for the more adventurous. There is a plug in water heater which worked perfectly and provided hot baths and showers with a good pressure.

We ate out every evening and there are plenty of reasonably priced restaurants in Burgau and Luz. the weather was so good that very often we only needed a main course and a drink - meals cost on average between 30 euros and 60 euros depending on how many course and how much wine you like!

The beech at Burgau is really good with safe bathing although very cold water at this time if the year. The Beach Bar is very popular and sunbeds are 12.5 euros for the day. There is nothing to beat lying on sunbed all day with a good book and unbroken good weather, which we were lucky enough to enjoy.

We hired a car at the airport, however there is a good bus service and taxis to Luz are about 12 euros and to Lagos about 22 euros. We did our shopping at Aldi and Lidl in Lagos as we know the area. The new underground car park in Luz is excellent and easy to access and use.

Other beaches worth visiting are Cabanas, Salema and Luz, plus Lagos for shopping and a wider selection of restaurants and history.

Thanks to Peter and Margaret for letting us rent your apartment and we had a great 2 weeks.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very detailed review! We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Burgau. The key is a bit fiddly and it usually takes a few goes to get the knack. We have installed new doors which allow more space on the patio to enjoy the wonderful views. We would be very pleased to accommodate you again at some point in the future.

Very good accommodation with a lovely view

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the Apartment was extremely well equipped, clean and very comfortable. The view from the balcony of the sea and beach was as described. We were so close to beach, sea, restaurants and shops. We would recommend Matias Restaurant as our favourite. Bergau was our favourite along this coast and we covered most areas. Our hosts were extremely helpful with our initial booking.
