About Nicola Smith

Nick and Nicola live in Lincolnshire ,UK.

After spending many wonderful family holidays in Burgau with their two children they decided that they wanted to retire to this beautiful fishing village on the Algarve.

Too young to retire yet therefore they rent the apartment out when they are not able to visit.

Nicola is a managing director of a marketing and graphic design company and Nick is an electrical engineer. Extended family and friends use the apartment all year round and there are many fond memories lovely holidays and precious moments from times in Burgau, hopefully many more to come.

Nicola Smith purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Nicola Smith chose Burgau

Why Burgau? You only ask that question if you have never been to Burgau before. Although on the Algarve its worlds away from the busy hustle and bustle of the highly populated areas near Faro. Burgau is a working fishing village and is on the edge of a national park Access to the west coast beaches is easy and the lovely town of Lagos is on the doorstep.

What makes this apartment unique

This property was chosen because it is modern and spacious. The position of the apartment within the complex is perfect for looking after young children as it is near the pool. The apartment benefits from full sun and shade terraces all day long. We love waking up in the morning and from our bed and being able to look out onto the private patio area with the sun flooding into the room. Of course we could pull the shutters down and the room would be dark but at least we have the option.

Set in beautiful gardens and walking distance to the beach and many good quality restaurants it fits our needs just perfectly.

Two good sized patio areas one at the front near the pool and the other at the rear overlooking open countryside and leading from the bedrooms. There are also patio doors from the living room/kitchen onto the front patio and at the rear two patio doors one for each bedroom leading onto the rear patio.

In the morning the rear patio has full sun which moves round to the front patio during the day. Giving the option of sitting in shade for full sun all day long.

We love having breakfast on rear patio and the front patio is great for bbq's

The apartment is light and and spacious just perfect for a family holiday

Great apartment with excellent facilities & just as described. We had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious apartment & well laid out. Comfy beds!

The apartment is in a good location on the outskirts of Burgau but as we knew that's still only a 5 minute walk to get to things as it's not a big place. Burgau is just as pleasant as we remembered it & a great place for a quiet holiday away from it all

Fabulous apartment in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

What a privilege to stay in such a fabulous apartment in a truly stunning part of the Algarve. We have thoroughly enjoyed our 11 night stay in this well presented, highly equipped, safe and spotlessly clean accomadation, in fact we had everything we needed and more while we were there including a much appreciated mid term clean with fresh linen and towels. The pool was such a massive hit with the children we struggled to get them out! Burgua is beautiful! The beach is fantastic and the restaurants amazing, the Beach Bar is a must. All this and a few shops housing the essentials are a short walk 5/10mins away. There's a great bus service into Luz and the fabulous Lagos. You certainly won't be disappointed staying here, we would highly recommend it and can't wait to return in the future. Communications with Nicola were fantastic, so informative making our first family holiday an absolute treat!

Wonderful stay in Burgau

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous well appointed apartment which has all the facilities you could need (even down to shopping bags). Very clean, safe and quiet. Yet so close to the delightful fishing village of Burgau and its beach and restaurants. Pool is directly adjacent to the apartment and almost feels like you have it as your own private pool.

Accommodation was spotlessly clean and Nicola is such a great host and made sure our stay was most enjoyable. We will definitely return at some time in the future.

Would thoroughly recommend the apartment and for you to make relatively short trip to west coast beaches at Odeceixe, Praia da Amado and Praia da Amoreira.

Burgau is a beautiful traditional fishing village on the edge of the S. W. National Parque. This excellent 4 * apartment is spacious and furnished to a very high standard. Open views over the Burgau countryside and set in beautiful gardens. Two large patio areas with full sun and shade options all day.

Burgau has traditional houses, and small shops and a small supermarket. ATM bars and superb restaurants.

Narrow cobbled streets lead down to the gorgeous sandy beach with the famous beach bar and other restaurants nearby.

There are some lovely walks along the cliff to Luz or through the countryside.

The regional capital of Lagos is 10mins drive and is full of history. Lots of shops bars and restaurants, a wonderful marina. The cobbled streets are a delight to wander along.

Parque da Floresta and BoaVista Golf Courses are within 9 km

Exploring the beaches of the West coast is a must

Overall this is the perfect location for a perfect family holiday
