Great place for an inexpensive holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming little place within a minute of a beautiful beach, plenty of good (and some not so good) restaurants and ideally located as a base to explore the Algarve. It’s close to Lagos so there’s plenty more going on not far away. Also about 1 hour away from Faro airport, which is handy.

It has a fast internet connection, which makes a pleasant change to much of the accommodation in Portugal. Well-equipped with microwave, washing machine, cooker, fridge-freezer etc.

It’s relatively inexpensive, presumably because it’s not large; 2 bedrooms and a living room/kitchen and a bath/shower/toilet. It used to be a fisherman’s cottage apparently. We didn’t find parking to be a problem although we went in April so not peak season.

The owner, Allan, is a nice guy and a mine of local information and he seems to know everyone. Very helpful.

Some observations (not complaints) in order to maintain the 5 star rating: it could do with a good spring clean. I think it’s managed by a company, not the owner. There are some building materials stacked against the rear wall, which need to be removed and have created a damp trap and this sometimes causes a smell of damp in the main bedroom.

Owner's Response: Hi Michael, Really pleased you enjoyed 'Casa Page' and your holiday which is what we strive for with all the people who stay in the cottage. Yes it was a fisherman's cottage and isn't large but does as you've kindly stated have everything in place and has all the mod cons even air con. Extremely grateful for your observations as this is how we all learn what we need to do to make our properties five star and we will work on putting those things right. Would love to see you back anytime in the future and thank you again for your review it is much appreciated.

Burgau it's ok

  • 1 of 5

Burgau it's a nice village with a few bar and restaurants.

The house is 2 min. walk from the beautiful beach, but inside the house was very dirty and i had to ask for cleaning.

Owner's Response: All I can say Stefano is that I am amazed it's taken you more than a year to complain. I'm also pleased that only you found it dirty. I do remember that the sheet was stained with that P20 sun lotion which we changed immediately, however you did not complain of anything else at the time. Regards, Alan.

Lovely cottage, friendly village

  • 5 of 5

This a very pretty little house with all the facilities you need for a laid-back seaside holiday. Clean and well maintained, newly refurbished kitchen and bathroom. The owner lives locally, seems to know everyone for miles around and you will immediately feel you fit in to the community when you stay here. Shops nearby for food shopping but for a great breakfast with a beach view and a warm welcome try the Cafe Brizze about 50 yards down the street. There are lots of other places to eat and drink - ask Alan for a list!

Fabulous little cottage

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location just 1 minutes walk down the cobblestone road of the village to the beach. Loved the patio out front. Great place to read and take in the sun (and shade!). Kitchen was all you need. WiFi is just across the street at the bar... very convenient. Alan was a great host. He gave us lots of tips on the village. Loved it would go back in a second.

There are many beautiful beaches within the area, the nearest being undoubtedly one of the very best which is Burgau beach just 75yds at most from the cottage door.

Lots of others are close by and the cliff top walks to them are quite spectacular.

If you wish to explore there are many other superb stretches of coastline consisting of small coves and then there are also many huge beaches with spectacular rolling waves for the surfers among you.


Car hire is recommended if you want to go out and about sight seeing.

However Burgau village has everything you could need for a wonderful beach holiday so a car is not necessary if you just want to relax in the sun and read your book.

Faro airport is exactly an hour away by car or taxi/transfer bus.


If you prefer to get out and about then Burgau is ideally situated as a base. There are many places of interest and fun days out for all the family and the historic town of Lagos is an easy bus ride or taxi ride if you don't have a car.

If you do hire a car then the Algarve is your oyster
