A fantastic apartment with large garden and lovely private pool within quiet complex.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at this apartment, its facilities are excellent. The location in the western Algarve is lovely, Lagos, Luz, Burgau etc. all easy car drives away. There are numerous restaurants to enjoy meals out.

The apartment itself is spacious and enjoys all home comforts. It was very clean and well cared for. The spacious garden, decking and particularly the private pool made for a very special holiday.

The owners of the property provided excellent and prompt information.

We look forward to returning in the future.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment and complex were perfect for us and our children (two under 3). The apartment had nearly everything we could ever need (a baby bath to borrow would have been the only addition as there is no bath). The pool is massive and beautifully clean, and the indoor pool was lovely when the weather was too windy to swim outside. Burgau beach is truly lovely and we have booked again to go back next year, this time for 2 weeks! Thank you Debbie for responding so quickly to our queries whilst onsite.

The holiday of a liftime

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to spend your holiday. The apartment has every comfort you could wish for. We have used the pool and the gymnasium most days, before venturing out to discover what the area had to offer. We have been to the Algarve before, but this area is truly magnificent. There are lots of places to eat out all the ones that we visited were very reasonably priced. We would love to come again. Thank you so much, Debbie & Andy.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Faro at 45 Miles Nearest Barpub : at 0.5 Miles Nearest Golf : Boa Vista at 3.5 Miles Nearest Train : Lagos at 6 Miles Nearest Motorway : A22 at 5 Miles Nearest Restaurant : at 0.5 Miles Nearest Beach : Burgau at 1.5 Miles

Special interest holidays:

The apartment backs onto agricultural ground where an array of wild birds can be seen.


5 minutes walk to the cliff top walk to Burgau and Luz both a 30 minute walk which both have fantastic, safe sandy beaches, restaurants and supermarkets and a 10 minute drive takes you to Lagos with numerous supermarkets, shops bars and the marina.


A 60 minute drive from Faro airport along a two lane motorway which is always quiet compared to UK motorways. Car hire recommended. Car hire is available from the airport. Luz cars offers competitive prices the price you see is what you get and you pick the car up and drop it off at the airport. Ryanair, Easyjet Jet 2 and Monarch fly regularly to Faro and bargain flights can be had especially outside peak season.


A fantastic location 1 km to Luz and 1.5 km to Burgau both with numerous bars and restaurants. The livelier town of of Lagos is a 10 minute drive away. Easy access to beautiful secluded beaches along the Western Algarve coast.

Further Details:

There is a supermarket in Luz and a bakery, corner shop and wine merchants in Burgau. Both Burgau and Luz have excellent restaurants and beautiful beaches.

In Lagos there are daily boat excursions including dolphin watching or trips to admire the dramatic coastline of the western Algarve. Or you may prefer a stroll along the 5 km of Meia Praia beach. The fishing village of Salema is well worth a visit where early in the morning you can watch the local fishermen bringing in their catch or mending their nets.

The historical town of Silves and Monchique are a short drive away and the beautiful beaches along the western coast of Ponta de Arrifana, Ponta da Atalai and the coastal drive from Carrapateria make for a memorable day, don't forget to take your camera.

In Barao de Sao Joao there is a zoo and miles of footpaths through the forest as well as a picnic area.

The property is registered with the Portuguese authorities to let registration number is 8594/AL
