Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We were wowed as soon as we walked into this lovely home. It's classed as an apartment technically but it's basically a house with an open plan and very spacious downstairs (far more so than the pictures suggest), twin room and family bathroom downstairs and upstairs bedroom with ensuite and balcony with sea views.

What we liked:

Everything just works! Huge pressurised hot water tank so you can run both showers at once, which is great when there are 4 of you who have just come off the beach! Lovely bathrooms, with great showers. Kitchen with everything you need to self cater. Big fridge. Beach gear to borrow. Washing machine. Just everything you need really.

Firm but really comfy beds, especially the double upstairs.

Lovely village. Burgau is what the Algarve should be. Not touristy but still plenty of places to eat, super little village shop, friendly, a delight to walk around in the evening.

Location: in an unspoilt part of the Algarve with easy access to the very best beaches on the south and west (surf!) coasts.

What we didn't like:

Going home to the cold!

Don't miss:

Warm bread and pastries from the local shop in the mornings or the wine selection downstairs!

The van selling fresh fish everyday, just round the corner

The beaches - explore - there are so many

Caves at Benagil and Praia Marinha nearby

If you can book this place for your dates, I can't recommend it highly enough.

great holidays

  • 5 of 5

We are back from an 10-days-stay in this wonderful house. It is well equipped (sometimes more than expected) and has the best terrace in town. You can sit there windshielded with a wonderful view with your green wine.

Everything (beach, restaurants, shops) are within a 5-min-walk.

Thanks to the host Michele, who answered all of our questions within a day and provided us with useful information.

We would like to come back!

Lovely appartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The appartment is beautiful, spacious and everything was as described. The location is just perfect, a few minutes on foot to the beach, shops and restaurants. Michele and Malcom are perfect hosts, every question is quickly answered and there is a lot of helpful information in the appartment. It is lovingly furnished and feels just like home. We would definitely recommend it and will be back.

Great apartment in lovely village

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well-located for shops and restaurants, in a quiet environment, not quite 5 minutes on foot to the beach. The apartment has everything you need, soap, toilet paper, bin bags... everything was provided for. When the shower head broke and we gave notice to the manager, it was repaired without any questions within the day. On top, there are games, DVDs and beach utensils, so you don't have to bring anything.

Michele was really very helpful and friendly.

We absolutely recommend the apartment, the handling is extremely professional - which we enjoyed a lot.

Fantastic apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 9 night stay in this fantastic apartment. Before we even booked the apartment the owner Michele was incredibly helpful and answered all of my many questions!

We hired a car at the airport and found Burgau a good base for exploring further afield - we visited Lagos zoo and the Splash and Slide water park.

Burgau is a lovely, unspoilt visit with a very family friendly feel. The apartment is in a great location for the local shops, restaurants and for the beach. The terrace is really peaceful and has amazing views out to sea. We found the apartment had everything you need with regard to utensils, etc for food preparation and also had plenty of bits and bobs for the beach (sun parasol, beach mats, buckets and spades etc) as well as a bank of DVDs, books and board games.

If you get the chance to visit this property take it!!!!
