A very cosy apartment; impossible to find fault............but wait.............I just remembered - the ledge on the side of the bath is too narrow to support a wine glass!

We certainly plan to return!

Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

Have been going to Burgau for many years and stayed in various different apartments, this has been one of the best. Communication and booking process with Ian was simple and straightforward. The apartment is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need and good quality furnishings. Beautiful views over the village from the balcony and all rooms, a lovely sunny place to sit for breakfast. The private roof terrace is an added bonus for afternoon sun and evening drinks. Loved the built in barbeque on the balcony for grilling fresh fish for our supper. Hope to book again soon.

Excellent apartment, love Burgau

  • 5 of 5

Excellent apartment. It was very well equipped. It was great to have a firm bed instead of the normal soft ones usually found in holiday rents. We appreciated the towel change mid week. The gym at the pool complex was closed ( not that we intended to use it) and initial impressions of the pool area was it was slightly jaded compared to when we went to Burgau 4 years ago, but the water was changed in the pool at least once while we were there. Restaurants are great ( but we had to book ahead). We would definitely return.

One of the best we have ever stayed in

  • 5 of 5

One of the best we have ever stayed in. Perfect location,excellent apartment full of quality furnishings plus lots of little extras - liquid soap in bathrooms,large fluffy towels and loads of dishes and containers etc in kitchen make this feel like it's someone's home not just a rental .

The pool area with its excellent snack bar is only 2 minutes walk away even with two small children and the associated blow up dolphin ,bags etc.

The centre of the village/ restaurants is only 5 minutes walk away .Sun Terrace is a great bonus ,and all the blow up toys/ beds for the beach were a joy for our children.

We are still missing having breakfast on the balcony with its unrestricted view to the village over open fields.

We will definitely be back next year both to the apartment and Burgau .

Thanks Ian for letting us stay.

Quality Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We looked at various apartments and liked the description and photos for this place. Ian replied to our initial enquiry and after phoning to discuss details we made our booking. The one thing we thought odd was that there were not many reviews, now this could just be that people have not given feedback good or bad, so we thought we would write our review that may help others

We arrived at faro airport and followed instructions to be met at the apartment. We did have a sat nav but the driving directions given were very good and so met Sean at the address with the keys about an hour and half later

The apartment is of excellent quality as shown on the website photos and we were very impressed. Sean showed us the basics and answered any questions and told us to call if any problems. We ordered the optional shopping pack which is fine for the basics needed when you arrive

This apartment looks over the village and the sea and sitting out on the balcony is very peaceful- here the shade kicks in around 2pm

There is also a rooftop area for sunbathing which is private and exclusive to the apartment (some other blocks are shared), better view of the sea from here and good if you want to sunbath in the afternoon. Our advice is to compare what you are actually getting when looking at the other apartment blocks as they may be a bit cheaper to book but the views and private rooftop may not be the same

The whole apartment block is very clean and furnished like new. Showers are great, quality towels and bed linen provided which are changed each week. Apartment is also cleaned each week. Tv and good selection of dvds and books are provided for your choice, but if the weather is kind you wont be needing any of them! Good WiFi connection which was great for us to check online for maps and information for beaches we wanted to visit. There is also a good selection of tourist guide books in the apartment which helped us find a couple of beaches we may not have spotted

The place is very homely and we felt very relaxed here.

Parking is available in the basement but most people tend to park on the quiet street outside the block

Hope to be back there soon to explore the area further as the beaches are fabulous
