Guestbook comments from the manager
I was the very fortunate person that spent the week with friends (along with my partner and wee boy) in May. I must say your house was amazing and very nice to stay in and I will definitely return and recommend it to friends. Lesley C May 2012

Wonderful Villa with Sea Views and Peace!
We've just had a lovely weeks holiday with our family of six adults. The spacious villa was outstanding, it was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. The Villa is set in an unspoilt part of the western Algarve, with breathtaking views of the sea, especially from the upper terraces. We were near several beautiful beaches, a couple with beach bars. The large clean pool was kept well and was always refreshing! Plenty of choice for eating out in any of the local towns and great choice of local cuisine. There was a large Supermarket with fuel station, close by, that supplied everything you could want. Our local english villa contact, Alice, was very helpful with any questions or advice we needed.
A fabulous villa for any occasion, you won't be dissapointed!
Definitely recommended. Fantastic villa to stay in located in a quiet, unspoilt part of the Algarve. Has easy access to both more sheltered southern facing beaches and Atlantic beaches with great waves (our 10 year old loves the waves!!)
The villa is beautifully decorated, fully equipped with very comfortable sun-loungers. The sundeck outside the master bedroom has stunning views - a great place for morning coffee/tea!
It's walking distance to the nearest beach with a good bar/restaurant (although a hill to climb on way back). Also only a short drive to many other good restaurants, our favourites are in Salema. Plus the supermarket is only 5 minute drive.
We have stayed 2 years running and can't wait to return next year!!
A villa to remember!!
We were fortunate enough to stay in this villa. All the descriptions of the property are correct, a very well equipped kitchen which allowed us to entertain our fellow holiday makers, beautifully presented bedrooms with fitted sheets on the beds, not ones which take a walk when you roll over and good quality mattresses. Good sized built in bbq area and correct among of garden furniture, maybe an additional umbrella would have been great, but that was a minor need as shade available. Very short drive to burgau, which is a charming village with the best beach bar around. the service and food are top quality. All in all a great place to have a family holiday, we will most definitely be going back. Many thanks :]

From the Owner
“Set between the wonderful sleepy fishing villages of Burgau and Salema, this provides wonderful space to kick back and enjoy the sunshine. It has everything you need for that well earned rest and the area offers something for all the family. Burgau is a short walk away and Salema is a short journey by car however we also have our own little cove Cabanas Velhas with its own little beach bar as a wonderful space for lunch, dinner or even that sunset drink. Lagos offer all the watersports and activities you might need a wonderful moorish town for you to explore.”
