About Lisa Lofthouse

Hello! My name is Lisa, I passed through Burgau 3 years ago now, I fell in love with the place and people and never left! The property I rent out in Burgau is a traditional portuguese home with relaxed, quirky and fun take on it! Enough of the same old bland, bare and 'modern' whitewash interiors. I have never needed to advertise so far, just word of mouth and return custom, but am hoping for a full, well planned year this year so here I am. No sea views, but a bargain of a property, and so central for those who want to be at the beach not just look at it!

Lisa Lofthouse purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Lisa Lofthouse chose Burgau

I aim to go the extra miles for guests at CasaLisa, with drinks welcome pack, heaps of local area info and recommendations, and a well stocked home from home, with all those little extras we sometimes forget - USB/battery chargers, repellent, books, music etc :) The situation is perfect, central to everything, yet private and I hope guests come away knowing they picked a good one!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We couldn't be more pleased with the apartment, it was clean, spacious and had everything we needed for us and our little girl - we felt so at home here.

Thanks again & we'll be back!" Rachel, James and Marcie

"We've fallen in love with this beautiful fishing village. We found this property mid-trip and immediately moved out of the hotel - it is well kitted out, finished to a high standard with lovely personal touches! Plus it's literally a minutes walk to Burgau's stunning beach! We definitely recommend it and have re-booked!" Nikki and Morgan

"We had so nice a days here in the 'Lisa' house! This is a beautiful apartment and a lovely village and beach. The decoration is great taste. We hope to be back in October, to stay in here again, have a good holiday!!! Vicky, Yan and Rasmus from Denmark

"Have caught the Burgau bug - great holiday well minded by Lisa - a beautiful place! WONDERFUL

Vanessa and Charley, Ireland"

We had a great stay here and even extended our stay by 1 week, the location is fantastic and got some great winter sun, The bars in town were nice and chilled which great even though it was off season it didn't feel like a ghost town.

Lovely house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything you could need.

One of the best properties we have stayed in. It's the little things that make a difference; a very comfortable sofa and bed, very clean, good water pressure, two door keys instead of the usual one and a friendly owner who lives locally.

The location is spot on. Very near everything in the heart of the village and because it's off the main roads it's quiet.

Would definitely stop in this property again.

A little Gem in the heart of Burgau

  • 5 of 5

Lisa is lovely and so helpful, after booking to stay at Casa Lisa I had my right knee replaced and therefore couldn't drive. Lisa organised a private transfer from the airport to Burgau and also gave a hand with our suitcases as I was on crutches.

When we arrived there was a welcome pack of local wine, tea, coffee and fresh milk and water in the fridge, so we didn't have to think about getting any essentials when we arrived.

The villa is exactly as the pictures show with everything there you would need from a fully equipped kitchen to all towels, including beach towels. The bed is very comfortable ensuring of a good night sleep after enjoying the delights of Burgau at night.

The guide to Burgau in the villa is very comprehensive and as first time visitors to this beautiful village was a great help.

Lisa popped in after a few days to see if we needed anything.

The villa and Burgau seems to be in a time warp as after only being there for a couple of days we felt we had been there for weeks as it is so relaxing.

As a base to get around Burgau the Casa Lisa couldn’t be more central with bars, restaurants and the beach only a few minutes’ walk, even when on crutches.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Casa Lisa and would recommend it to anyone.

Once again thank you Lisa.

Perfectly based to get around Burgau and surrounding areas. The accommodation has everything you could need for a holiday and more. Lisa has thought of everything , kitchen utensils, spices and herbs for that perfect meal. DVD's and books for a relaxing evening in. Beach mats and beach towels along with a dinghy. Nothing was too much trouble for Lisa, perfect hostess. We knew we could text with a question and the answer was with us soon after..

Perfect base, with prefect facilities and a perfect host :-)

Wonderful Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely 9 night stay at Lisa's beautiful apartment. The apartment is perfect for two people and is without doubt the most comprehensively well stocked apartment we have ever stayed in, nothing was missing I just kept on finding little gems to make life easier for us. The apartment is spotlessly clean and well situated for the beaches and all of the facilities which Burgau has to offer. Lisa is an excellent host and nothing was too much trouble thank you so much for being there.

The property is literally 70 meters from the beautiful Burgau bay and is surrounded either side by beautiful coves, both developed to varying degrees and also endless of the private, isolate kind and only 20 minutes drive to the more wild West coast beaches ideal for surfing.


- 5Km to Pria da Luz

- 14Km to Lagos

- 9Km to Salema

- 24Km to Sagres

- 14Km to Zavial

- 29Km to Carrapateira


1 hour drive from Faro airport, very easily navigated. Hire car is a great way to explore the best this region has to offer but equally easy airport travel can be made by transfers, private or shared shuttle buses, bus, train or taxi.

Just ask for recommendations on car hire, transfer companies or anything else you have questions on! We look forward to hearing from you.


The western Algarve is an area of beauty, with rugged mountain landscapes, coastlines filled with rocky coves and sandy beaches, and quaint villages set on the seafront or tucked in the hills. Burgau itself sits on the edge of a natural park and appeals to people of all ages. It is ideally situated to explore the South and West Algarve:

- 5Km to Pria da Luz

- 14Km to Lagos

- 9Km to Salema

- 24Km to Sagres

- 55 Km to Monchique mountain

- 55 Km to Silves

Further Details:

The western Algarve is an area of beauty, with rugged mountain landscapes, coastlines filled with rocky coves and sandy beaches, and quaint villages set on the seafront or tucked in the hills.
