Guestbook comments from the owner
The villa was fantastic, we all had a lovely relaxing time, shame it was only for 1 week. We'll certainly recommend it to other families. Mrs T. Suffolk.
We had a fantastic time in Portugal and the villa was so light and airy and so well appointed. its just a shame we had to return to the darkness and rain of Scotland! Mrs H. Ayrshire.
Villa and weather both perfect. Couldn't have asked for better. We will be in touch with regard to future booking. Mr N. Stockton On Tees

Beautiful villa, great location.
Until June 2015 I hadn't been back to Burgau for many years but quickly rediscovered what I'd been missing - and kicked myself for leaving it so long. There is stunning coastal scenery with superb sandy coves and beaches, many of them 'tucked away' where you can find relative solitude even in high season - with swimming and rockpools perfect for adults and kids alike. And now there are some really good beachbars here and there as well - or just isolation if you prefer to go and find it. The villa itself is superbly equipped and the garden and pool is just fantastic - a great place to just spend days relaxing and recharging the batteries if that's what you need. One clever thing about the villa is the 'coolhouse' system, which keeps the interior cool both during the day and when the nights are hot, but without the noise and stale air of aggressive air-conditioning (which often used to make our kids 'throaty'' after a few days). The villa sits alongside others in a superb estate of virgin Algarve countryside and although all the amenities you could want are on the doorstep you can just as easily go walking out and get delightfully 'lost' for an hour or so beautiful countryside in the cool of the early morning. Burgau, 10 minutes away by car, is a charming village of fisherman's houses and cottages tumbling down to a sandy bay, and there are several bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets - and we found great quaility this year, from simple pizza to traditional Portuguese, and of course if you like fish you're in heaven. If you have teenagers (or if you fancy it yourself) the nightlife of Lagos is only 25 minutes away - during the day a place full of history and character to explore and shop (good supermarkets as well), but at night there's a real buzz with busy restaurants and bars and many clubs open till the wee hours. So this is a great villa in a holiday spot that has something for everyone - I'll certainly be back next year!
We had a super holiday? The villa was spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. I would definitely visit again.
A Perfect Location
A perfect spot and ideal for a family holiday. The villa provides modern facilities to a high specification and has everything you would require for everyday living. The garden is private and not overlooked and the development and surrounding area is clean and tidy. Although this is a peaceful and beautiful spot there is a children's play area and tennis courts nearby, whilst other activities also take place in the reception area.
I will not describe the beaches, shops or restaurants as they are well itemised in the villa brochures and you can take your choice. There is something to suit everyone and sandy beaches galore. The local food is particularly good.
If you get bored with the pool or local beaches there is quite a lot to see in the area and a trip to Monchique inland is worthwhile. I advise a guide book to the Algarve for the explorers. A great base for a holiday which is relatively easy to get to from Faro and I would thoroughly recommend it.
