About the property

Villa in Burgau, Algarve, Portugal - Within Easy Walk To Beach And Restaurants

This luxury villa with its own private pool and furnished garden is in a quiet position away from the road on this tasteful new complex on the edge of the protected Costa Vicentina National Park. It has two separate balconies one off the master bedroom with sea views and the other to the side. The village is still an active fishing village and you can enjoy the local produce and catches at one of the many traditional restaurants, walking distance from villa. The beach is a short walk down pretty cobbled streets. The location is an excellent base for exploring the beautiful Algarve scenery or for walking, golfing, and surfing based holidiays. There many places of interest to visit outside Burgau. Historic Lagos, the breathtaking rural town of Monchique, the views from Cape St Vincent, and the many stunning beaches (over 33 with easy reach). For children there are safe beaches, local zoos and water theme parks. So this really is a place that appeals to everyone.

About Julia Braggs

We are a family with 3 daughters who live and work in Hertfordshire. We have had numerous holidays in Portugal and fell in love with Burgau.

Julia Braggs purchased this in 2012

Why Julia Braggs chose Vila Do Bispo region

We have owned an apartment on the complex for 5 years from 2007 which we let out over that time with lots of lovely comments. In 2012 we decided we would like our own pool and garden to relax in and have swapped our apartment and bought a villa instead. We are really looking forward to our first summer holiday around it!

What makes this unique

We love Burgau because the local beaches are beautiful and never too crowded even in peak season. Also like being able to walk to the restaurants and enjoy a bottle of wine and not worry about driving home!

The local towns of Salema, Luz and Lagos are also lovely to explore.



There are at least 33 beaches within easy reach of the villa, local beaches include Burgau, Martinhal, Ingrina and Boca do Rio. The main areas of Lagos, Alvor, Feragudo, Carvoeiro and Sagres contain many stunning beaches . Many beaches have beach front restaurants where you can enjoy the freshly caught fish and a glass of local wine and watch the world go by.


The villa is 1 hours drive from Faro airport and is an easy journey along the new N22 motorway. You can also take a taxi. There is are local taxi and buses to Luz, Lagos and beyond.


The villa is a short walk (250m) from the beach. Lagos (10 minutes), Luz (5 minutes), Salema (5 minutes), Monchique (30 mins). There are a number of excellent supermarkets in Luz and Lagos, and a couple of smaller ones in Burgau itself.

Further Details:

Food: There are 14 local restaurants within walking distance of the villa. Many more in Lagos, Luz and Salema which are within easy reach. Children: If you are going away with children there are some great water parks and zoos across the Algarve –these include 3 zoos Parque Zoologico in Lagos, Krazy World in Algoz, and Omega Parque Jardim Zoologico in Monchique. There are also 5 water theme parks –Zoomarine in Guia, Slide & Splash in Lagoa, Aqualand in Alcantarilha, Atlantic Park in Loule, & Aquashow in Quarteira Places to visit: Try the following -Lagos (ancient port), Luz (with its sheltered bay), Salema, Sagres, Monchique (breathtaking rural town), Portimao, Silves (with its castle), Albufeira (with its nightlife and shopping), Cape St Vincent (most westerly point in Europe), Aljezur (beautiful long sandy beaches, washed by the huge waves coming in from the Atlantic Ocean). Water Sports: The southern coastline is better suited to swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving & windsurfing because the waters are a bit calmer. For serious surfers, a visit to the Algarve’s west coast is a must! The Atlantic Ocean creates perfect rolling waves for surfing. Praia da Arrifana, Praia da Bordeira & Praia do Amado are particularly popular beaches & Praia do Amado has a surf school for tuition. Walking: There some fantastic coastal walks which can be accessed from the complex, for more serious hikers, there are endless possibilities for walking in the two mountain ranges, the Serra de Monchique & Serra do Caldeirão, which boarder with Alentejo along the northern edge of the Algarve. Golf : There are numerous excellent local courses within easy reach of the apartment –Boavista, Palmares, Penina, Parque De Floresta, Alamos, Alto Club, Morgado, Gramacho, Pinta, Salgados, and Silves. Riding and Tennis: There is local tennis club with pool and bar ½ a mile away, and a fantastic riding club less than two miles away.

Fab villa!

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a 10 day holiday in Burgau with my family, and the villa was absolutely fantastic - spotlessly clean, great facilities and Ana (the housekeeper) was very helpful and friendly throughout our stay.

The location was great, with just a short walk to the shops and restaurants in Burgau, or to the beach. And the pool was lovely, very clean and my sons were in it from morning til evening every day.

We loved our stay in this villa, definitely recommended.

As the title above suggests - this Villa really is gorgeous & extremely comfortable. My family and I have just returned from a week's stay and "really didn't want to come home!!" The Villa was spotless upon our arrival and Ana (Housekeeper) was on hand throughout our stay to answer any questions that we had. The photographs are an exact representation (no Estate Agent shots here!!") and it is a 5 minute walk away from the local shops and another 5 minutes "down the hill" to the lovely beach :) Our favourite Restaurant was Esquina - the food here is AMAZING - we went 4 times!! We will certainly be back :)
