About the Owner
About Mr & Mrs Stenner
Married with three children, interested in buying and refurbishing properties for resale or letting. Loves the outdoors, appreciates nature, the arts and all sports! especially football and golf.
Mr & Mrs Stenner purchased this villa in 2010
Why Mr & Mrs Stenner chose Vila Do Bispo region
After having several holidays in this area we decided that it would be a great location to have a holiday home, the portuguese are extremely friendly, the scenery is beautiful and similar to that in Cornwall, UK and unspoilt by the tourist industry, many of the beaches are uncrowded with plenty to explore, with great surfing and fishing and the weather is always at least 10 degrees warmer with less rain than the in UK !! And of course the food is fantastic.
What makes this villa unique
The villa is in a great spot and has good access to local and major routes, whilst still being close to the sea. Its a great place to cycle and walk to fully enjoy the scenery. But a short drive to explore a cove or try out a new restaurant, explore a village or ruin.

delicious stay in the Algarve
We had a very nice time in Burgau, Algarve, at the house of fam Stenner. The sleeping rooms were big, and all connected to a bathroom, with two baths. With our four kids, we never had to wait for a shower or a toilet!
The swimming pool was warm enough to swim in, also when the weather was cloudy or rainy. There is a lot of inflatable gear to be used. We added two body boards, which we used during our stay in the sea.
The fire place was nice to be used with wood from behind the backyard.
We saw nice movies (Englisch subtitles).
The only minus was the wifi, which was not powerful enough to do more than sending a whatsapp. Sometimes we managed to visit a website. Such a luxury house suits a better wifi.
Anyways: thanks for a wonderful stay in a clean an stylish house, in a wonderful surrounding.
Fabulous home, stunning views, warm and sunny.
We found the property easily, having hired a car from faro airport. The villa was immaculate and stylish with all that you could need in the way of essentials. All contact with the owners before our trip was straightforward and efficient and the property description was spot on. During the day, it was warm enough to use the pool and the weather was sunny every day we were there. The local restaurants served beautiful fresh fish and were not too busy. In fact, it seems to be a great time of the year to visit as the beaches were deserted and the local towns quiet.
My partner and I had a wonderful holiday and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.
Excellent! The house and location are excellent!!
My family (parents and two teenage daughters) stayed over Christmas break. The house was bigger than we expected. The kitchen was fully stocked. There was even device to make fresh orange juice. Great way to start the day.
The house had heat but we found it wasn't really needed. The fireplace was awesome to use in the evening. The house was bigger than the pictures indicated and very nicely decorated. We loved the upper deck. Nice to soak in the sun and admire the views.
The location was excellent. There is a pine forest behind the house that was fun to walk around. The is also a fort across the street. The best was the ability to go across the street and walk on the trials by the coast. We loved the walking on the cliffs. We miss our sunset walks.
The beaches are an easy walk from the villa. Next time we will come when the weather is more beach friendly. The town of Burgau was nice. It was also an easy drive to Lagos and Sagres.
In summary, this was an excellent place to vacation. The house and location are excellent. And the owners were very easy to work with on this rental.
This is a beautiful villa in a stunning location in the Western Algarve. So good we've stayed twice in the same year.
The villa itself is light and airy. The contemporary, modern style is lovely and there are lots of thoughtful touches (books, board games, pool toys, plenty of towels for the pool, kitchen supplies etc.) that felt like you were staying in a friend's home rather than a rented villa. We didn't want for anything. The management company who visited were friendly and helpful with suggestions about restaurants, place to visit etc. The garden and pool area are immaculate and well maintained; the pool itself is pristine. There are views out to sea from the top terrace.
The local beach was great; never busy, pounding surf for our visit in October and quieter sea in July leaving lots of shells for collecting. There's a ruined castle 5mins walk from the villa that's fun to explore and has wonderful views along the coast. Nearby Salema has great fish restaurants and we watched the catch being brought in one morning. Further afield Cap St Vincent was stunning especially at sunset and the dolphin watching from Sagres very special.
Very luxuruous complete and clean house
The house was even better then we expected. The house was extremely clean. The procedure to enter the house was really convenient. We highly recommend this house and it's surrounding.
