About Paul & Jules Barker

Paul & Jules, a British couple in their 50's and 60's, bought this beautiful apartment 10 years ago, to spend the winter months 'in the sun'. We furnished the apartment for our tastes as we plan to retire here; and we have stored all our 'summer' clothes there, in a locked up basement storage area, so when we travel for a break to Burgau, we travel very light. You'll enjoy the time you spend in Casa Tranquilidade, as many of our guests have in the past. Any questions just drop us an email, always happy to assist.

Paul & Jules Barker purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Paul & Jules Barker chose Burgau

Burgau is a like a little Cornish fishing village, cobble stoned 1:3 roads to uncrowded beach and little houses all remind us of Polperro. If you need you can drive down to beach side parking for those, like my 90 yr old Mum, who couldn't manage the steepness. The development I suppose is slightly out of character, but following the new Portuguese development regulations it has been limited to 2 storey high and finished in a very light colour that does blend into the older village style. We enjoy all the seasons Burgau offers from the baking summers to the fresh, warm winters, even the rain only seems to last a short while then blue skies again. The development is uncluttered, quiet and safe, the village offers everything we need and was one of the main factors when we decided to buy.

What makes this apartment unique

The co-located all year pool, is a big attraction for us, as are the beautiful cliff top walks, easy cycling to neighbouring towns, and the very friendly welcoming local residents. 50 mins drive from Faro airport along the uncrowded motorway through Lagos, is fantastic for those who arrive by plane. We use a great little hire car company for cheap hires of the budget compact cars. The day we arrive we shop for basics, there are many local supermarkets. We also provide a starter pack to get guest settled in. We are fortunate to have an excellent local agent Ana who meets our guests and shows them around, and looks after their every need. There is a full book of ideas in the apartment, and Ana is on hand to help guests decide what to do in the region, just a phone call away.

Great apparment

  • 5 of 5

We already knew the village of Burgau prior to arrival, great places to eat fine variety food, great beach only a few mins from the apartment. Other areas of the Algarve within easy reach, my wife and myself went to chill out with a bit of sun, all was achieved. Thanks Paul & Jules your apartment was a joy to stay in fully equipped is an understatement and local help Ana in the background but available if required.

Thanks to all concerned.

Super appartement dans petit village tranquille

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une très belle semaine dans cet appartement situé au calme dans un petit village de pêcheur (il faut dire que c'était la basse saison). Il est très fonctionnel avec deux grandes chambres et deux belles salles de bain, un séjour et une cuisine très pratiques. Tout est pensé pour que les vacances se passent au mieux et le propriétaire est vraiment très sympathique (il vaut mieux parler anglais quand même). Il y a également une piscine commune à plusieurs logements mais elle était plus froide que l'océan et nous n'y sommes donc pas allés. La plage est à 10 minutes à pied et il est possible de se promener le long des falaises. Si je devais trouver quelques défauts, je dirais que la télé n'est qu'en anglais et la terrasse est assez petite et surtout de plain-pied, donc on ne peut pas y laisser sécher des affaires. Mais nous avons eu tellement d'informations et de conseils avant le départ de la part du propriétaire que nous nous sommes tout de suite trouvés à l'aise!

Owner's Response: Nathalie, many thanks for your kind comments on our apartment; you will always be welcomed back, and if you decide to come to us again we do offer a 10% discount to returning guests on published rental process. We'll sort out the streaming TV channels for French, for you next time :) Kind regards, Paul & Jules Translation: Super apartment in a quiet village ★★★★★ We had a very nice week in this quiet apartment in a small fishing village. It is very functional with two large bedrooms and two beautiful bathrooms, a living room and a very practical kitchen. Everything is thought so that the holidays are at best and the owner is really very friendly (it is better to speak English anyway). The beach is 10 minutes walk and it is possible to walk along the cliffs. If I had to find some flaws, I would say that the TV is in English and the terrace is quite small. But we had so much information and advice before departure from the owner that we were immediately at ease!

Lovely apartment in a quiet area in Bergau, close to shops and the beach , the apartment has good Wifi and internet based TV so watching any movie we wanted was a treat.

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The beach is only a short 10 minute walk through the cobbled streets of the village, and for those who enjoy walking, this is a fantastic area for walks along the stunning coastline, east towards Praia da Luz and west towards Sagres. For those less able, you can drive down to Burgau beach-side car parking areas. There is also an award winning beach-bar restaurant. There are also many nearby secluded beaches accessible by foot or car. Heading West takes you to many popular surfing areas.

Travel:

The resort is about 50 mins from Faro airport and is a popular holiday destination for families and is ideal for those with young children. Car rental is very economical compared to the UK, from the many hire car companies at the airport. Contact owners for their preferred Faro and Lisbon based supplier.

Distances:

Burgau is 10km west from Lagos approx a 15 min drive. 5km from Praia da Luz approx 5 min drive.

Further Details:

Burgau is located on the edge of the Costa Vincentina national park with many unspoilt and beautiful beaches and other historical venues including a castle.

There are shops, supermarkets, restaurants and pubs in the village of Burgau, and a daily visiting fruit and vegetable market. The Burgau sports centre has an indoor pool, tennis court, playground and other activities for adults and children. There is also a cash machine in the village and many others in nearby Luz and Lagos.
