We are a Surrey-based family that fell in love with the Western Algarve when we had little children and have loved it every since..

Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a great holiday in this villa. The villa has everything you need and is very comfortable with a great pool. Peaceful location but close enough to beaches, towns and other places to visit. Having a car would be essential but whilst visiting nearby places is great so was just lazing at the villa. Resort staff very helpful as well.

Exceptionally well maintained home in a tranquil s

  • 5 of 5

Exceptionally well maintained home in a tranquil setting.

The property is meticulously cared for, the owners have thought of absolutely everything to make your stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

All the rooms are a great size, the pool area and BBQ is perfection and the location is peaceful.

There are a number of private beaches and restaurants nearby and the local towns are just a short drive away and have everything that is needed.

If your looking for a weekend retreat, a week long holiday or a longer stay, Villa Lucia is the place for you.

Lovely spacious villa and great pool

  • 4 of 5

The villa was lovely, easy drive to lots of beaches. The pool was a good size for children and with the pool heating on was almost like swimming in a bath, which was great when the wind was blowing or not such a hot day.

1 and 4 year old had great fun at the play park which was good for early morning activity.

Great location, lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Great location a short drive from the lovely village and beach of Burgau, and with easy access to Lagos and the further western Algarve. Good sized pool in a secluded garden. Quality BBQ and well furnished outdoor area for sunbathing and eating. The inside of the house is beautifully done to make it feel like a home rather than a holiday house. Very well equipped kitchen. Local management very responsive, and pool/garden maintenance very unobtrusive. All made for a very pleasant and relaxing stay. Can only thoroughly recommend it.

fabulous villa that has everything.

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous Villa and was perfect for two families sharing, the "H" shape with a twin and double on either side was great. Great pool and sitting areas. The kitchen was very well equipped and everything was very clean and tidy. The staff on the complex were very helpful too. We would recommend this villa 100%

Superb villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

A really top class villa with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Great pool area close to the house for swimming and sun bathing. The villa is equipped with everything you may need during your stay and all of exceptional quality. The small town of Burgau is a short drive away too with some great restaurants and bars, and Lagos and Sagres are easily accessible too. Definetly a place I would return to.
