About Lisa Green

Hello! I'm Lisa, I have always been backpacking around one corner of the world or another, until I passed through Burgau 7 years ago, 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 had years of 5 star reviews and thrive off providing a fabulous holiday experience to my guests! I also have a 2 bed property in central Burgau - new, named Casa Indie after my 4 month old daughter... ask me for a link, or search for Casa Indie ;)

Lisa Green purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Lisa Green 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 :)

But mainly with Casa Lisa - it just has a special feel and the situation is perfect, so central yet private, and I hope guests come away knowing they picked a good one!

What makes this apartment unique

Just 70 meters from the beach

Spacious, flexible living area for maximum value

Mini terraces for barbecues & dining alfresco

Super high speed internet, UK TV

All towels (inc. beach) provided

Hair dryer & straighteners provided

Airport travel or hire car can be arranged

Real Portuguese street, authentic feel

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.

Praia do Burgau
Car: not necessary

The old fishing village of Burgau comprises of a series of white faceted cottages prettily tumbling down the hillside toward a secluded, idyllic bay. Turquoise, clear waters gently lap a white sandy beach below a rocky hillside. Sheltered either side by rugged, high rock faces, the Atlantic here is often calm and always inviting.

Burgau is that rare phenomenon - a contented marriage of old & new, which perhaps goes some way to explaining why it feels so special.. Paradoxically on one hand retaining all the charm of an authentic fishing village and on the other being home to a grateful influx of visitors, old and young, and all the facilities that bring with it.

The cheerfully coloured fishing boats rest on the light sand awaiting their next fishing expedition. In the kitchens of the nearby restaurants, the freshly prepared fish is plated up for hungry tourists, who come to enjoy the typical regional cuisine whilst gazing across beauty of the bay, perhaps watching a pod of dolphins, or occasional a whale or two. The broad expanse of sand is enough for all who come here to relax, soak up the sun and swim... but come sundown its time to relocate to one of the laid back beach bars for cocktails and live music sessions.

Praia do Burgau beach spreads along the south-western coast of the Algarve and is situated 12 kilometres from Lagos. 5km to Praia Da Luz, 22km to Sagres.

Every conceivable activity is on offer here and I can help you book if you require... SUP, surf, kayak, boat trips, fishing, diving, mountain biking, walking, jeep tours, water parks, zoo's, museums, jet skiing, water skiing, dolphin watching, tree zip lines, communal barbecue areas, winery tours, yoga, sunset boat trips, banana boats, snorkelling, spearfishing, yachting bird watching.. and on...just ask!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

- 14Km to Zavial

- 29Km to Carrapateria

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. Burgau itself sits on the edge of a natural park and appeals to people of all ages, full of all necessary amenities, 3 mini-markets, a newsagent, a bakers, ample delicious restaurants, snack bars and plenty of choice of bars. One ATM machine, a bus stop and weekly doctors surgery.
