About the property

Villa near Burgau, Algarve - Peaceful Location, 10 Mins Walk to Beach & Village

The villa is situated in a peaceful and tranquil setting, ideal for families to enjoy a private and wonderful holiday. It is a 10 minute walk to the lovely Cabanas Velhas beach which has a bar and restaurant and outside relaxing sun beds. The very quaint fishing village of Burgau is 1 km away, a 20 minute walk, although, a car is essential in order to enjoy the locality. Burgau has a few shops for essentials, a bakery and some fantastic restaurants, we recommend Os Amigos, Anchora and Esquina all in the information folder at the villa. For family's there are 2 water parks approximately 40 mins drive,away, "slide and splash"and "The big one", also Zoomarine where you can swim with dolphins, you will need to book this prior to your holiday though.

The villa is an extremely spacious property with large airy rooms ideal for relaxing. Fully equipped with all your holiday requirements.

The villas private pool and terrace area is ideal for family holidays, consisting of shaded veranda, rattan dining furniture, and two barbecues, one portable ideal for outside dining. The large swimming pool is 10m x 5m,there are sun loungers, small drinks tables and parasols for your comfort and relaxation and pool towels are provided.

We have English speaking villa management who are available should you require them during your stay.

The local village of Salema is a stunning drive over the mountain which boasts a beautiful beach, bar and one of the finest restaurants Agua na Boca.

Local also to pretty Praia da Luz and the bustling town of Lagos.

The villa is less than 10km away from the popular golf resorts of Santo Antonio (formerly Parque da Floresta), Boavista and the new Espiche course with the stunning Palmeiras golf course sitting just on the outskirts of Lagos town.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Faro at 78 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Cabanas Velhos Beach Bar & Restaurant at 1.5 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Santo Antonio (formerly Parque de Floresta) at 6 Kilometres Nearest Train : Lagos at 13 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A22 at 10 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Spice Cottage at 1 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Cabanas Velhos at 1 Kilometres Car: recommended


The nearest beach of Cabanas Velhas is a 10 mins walk away. Burgau beach is also situated 2km away from the villa. Both beaches have excellent beach bars and are child friendly. There is also Praia de Luz which is a 5 to 10 minute drive, with a lovely beach and many restaurants. In the opposite direction (left out of the villa) a scenic 10 minute drive, is Salema, a peaceful little fishing village with a stunning beach and excellent restaurants and cocktail bar.


The distance from Faro Airport to the villa is 78km, approximately 1 hour 15 minutes drive. Car hire is recommended but not essential. Local taxi services are available, and there is also a bus service from the village of Burgau.


Burgau village is 2km away, it comprises a lovely beach, with beach bar, along with some excellent restaurants and bars. Lagos, the main town of the region is approximately 15km from The Villa. It is a very busy town with a real Portuguese feel, and with plenty of shops (including the fish market), street entertainment, Marina and many lovely restaurants, it is a great place to spend a day or an evening. It is also a great place to catch a boat trip around the Grottos and/or fishing trip.

For the sporty people there is the Burgau sports centre, located just outside of Burgau village and also Tiffany's horse riding centre located on the N125 between Lagos and Budens.

There are many lovely beaches and coves to be sought along the coastline, although many are off the beaten track but, well worth the adventure, as you will almost certainly find a little gem!

As you would expect from the Algarve there is an array of Golf courses, Burgau having 4 excellent courses within easy reach. Santo Antonio (formerly Parque da Floresta), Espiche golf course, Boa Vista and Palmeras golf course in Lagos.

Within a 30 - 40 minute drive from the villa there are the Aqua parks of Slide and Splash and Aqualandia, both great family days out!!

The Aquatic centre of Zoo-marine is approximately 1 hours drive and is a lovely day out, it also gives the opportunity to experience swimming with Dolphins although this (experience) must be booked well in advance.

Medical Services:

There is a private medical clinic in Praia Da Luz. The name of which is Luz Doc, they speak very good English and work in conjunction with many insurance company's. Also there is the local medical centre just on the outskirts of Lagos (Centro de Saude) which is a public clinic and you can use a EHIC card.
