About the property

Apartment in Burgau, Western Algarve (1514/AL) - Small Fishing Village - 5 Minute Walk to Beach - Close to Many Excellent Golf Courses

This spacious ground floor apartment is located in a small private condominium on the edge of Burgau village. The lounge and South terrace overlook the swimming pool. Internal areas in excess of 105 square metres complement the large outdoor terraces. Burgau beach is a five minute walk away - a beautiful sandy beach ideal for buckets and spades! There is an excellent beach bar with stunning views. Burgau is ideally situated for golfers - nearby are Boa Vista, Parque de Floresta, Palmares, Penina, etc., - these courses are fantastic and far more affordable than those in the Vilamoura and Vale de Lobo areas. The West coast is a surfers' paradise - and the beaches here - a twenty minute drive away - are stunningly beautiful. There are a couple of lively bars in Burgau and many restaurants. Lagos with it's many shops, cafes, restaurants and lovely marina is a fifteen minute drive away. Faro airport is a one hour drive away - alternatively there is a bus service.

About Louise Chamberlain

We are English, retired and now living full-time in Portugal. We purchased this apartment originally as a holiday home but then fell in love with the area so much we decided to relocate from England to Burgau permanently. We then designed our own villa and project managed the building works ourselves. During this busy time we lived in the apartment which is a ten minute walk away from where we live now. Having lived in the apartment ourselves for two years we can assure you it is very comfortable and convenient. We are on hand during the entire time of your holiday to offer any advice or assistance you may need. Many people return to this area for their holidays year after year - everyone falls in love with Burgau! Louise and Doug Chamberlain.

Why Louise Chamberlain chose Vila Do Bispo region

Guests return year after year whenever they visit Burgau to enjoy the comfort and convenience that the property and its location has to offer above others. We now have guests who are in their fourth year, sixth year, seventh year and eighth year of holiday rental. Unique benefits - good environment for children who enjoy the heated (seasonal) swimming pool immediately in front of and in full view of the apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

Long term guests enjoy the benefit of central heating in the Winter months. (A necessity for the colder evenings)

The veranda patio offers shade to read in the Summer months and sunshine warmth in the Winter months.

The sun is on the West terrace/garden from 0930 in the morning to 7.30 in the evening during mid Summer.
