Beautiful spacious and adequate

  • 5 of 5

The space inside is amazing and the layout is terrific. Despite being regularly used for some time this cottage conversion shows little wear and tear. It was lovely to return to a cool cottage following a hard day on the beach. If, like us, you lean toward self-catering rather than eating out all the time, there are adequate utensils and crockery to cope.

Everything about this cottage conversion helps toward a relaxing stress free holiday. It is far enough away from lively restaurants but close enough to the beach for enjoyable walks to wherever you are going and provides a peaceful environment.

The beach is clean and there is sufficient space not to feel too crowded (our first week clashed with spring half-term). This beach is ideal if you are taking children.

Burgau is a good place to visit and recommending this cottage conversion is easy, recommended.

Quiet and roomy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic experience in this cottage and the little village of Burgau. The home was very clean, extremely spacious, and had everything we needed for a 5 day stay. It is located in the center of town, literally steps away from the beach and numerous restaurants. In hot weather, the cottage was cool and located in a quiet part of town - made for great sleeps.

If you are looking for a real Portuguese experience, away from the crowds, and great restaurants, local grocer and bakery - this cottage is perfect for you. It is also a great location for you to do day trips and explore the beautiful western Algarve towns and beaches of Lagos, Luz, Salema, Fugueira, Zavail, and the Atlantic beaches of Sagres, Amando, and Bordeira. Most withing a 15 minute drive and the Atlantic beaches, less than 45 minutes!

The owner Janice made sure your visit was a good one, was very responsive, and left a great catalog of things to do and where to eat which was extremely helpful.

Burgau was one of our favorite villages of the western Algarve and this cottage comes highly recommended - we will be back!

Fabulous apartment.

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in this property. It was clean, spacious, had great water pressure and facilities and was in a great spot, close to all shops and restaurants and of course, the beach. The only downside was the damp smell, not only within the apartment but we found that all cupboards smelled musty as well as the towels and sheets etc, including the spares in the wardrobe. We used the dehumidifier daily which helped the smell in the building. This aside, we loved it.

Beautifully appointed cottage

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Bouganvillia. Spotlessly clean, very spacious and so many extras which we didn't have to buy - cleaning stuff, soaps, basic condiments. This cottage had everything we needed for a holiday stay. The information book was absolutely brilliant and the fact that you had things "to do" if the weather wasn't kind was great - good selection of books, jigsaw, games, cards, dvds, English tv etc. Very pleased indeed so thankyou everyone.
