A lovely apartment, very clean, well appointed and with a superb terrace and views. The owners, Hugh and Hilary are very welcoming and friendly. Really lovely people. The apartment is very close to the sandy beach - less than a five minute walk. We stayed here for a week late August/ early September 2016 with our two children aged 7 and 10. The weather was hot and sunny and the sea was lovely and warm. The waves were quite strong at times and great fun with a body board. The sand was superb for building sand castles. The beach was not too crowded and it was easy to pop back to the apartment if we forgot anything. The village of Burgau has some charming cobbled streets and there's a lovely walk up to the cliff top. There were local shops that we could easily walk to for groceries. We had a fantastically relaxing week and would definitely recommend it. We'll be back!

My husband and I had a 4 day trip to The Beach House in November.

We had a fabulous time, wonderful accommodation, stunning views and a stones throw from the beach. First Class !

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this property - it was immaculate and tastefully decorated, the location fantastic. I loved the morning walk to the supermarket down the cobbled streets and our teenage daughters enjoyed being able to go to the beach by them selves. The photo of the view from the kitchen - it really is as beautiful as that!!

Hugh and Hilary were brilliant during the booking process - thank you to you both,

The Boulter Family

Even better than the photos!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just returned from a fabulous week away in this beautifully appointed villa. The location could not be bettered-over looking the pristine beach and right in the middle of the lovely old town area of Burgau. The property was immaculate on our arrival and really well equipped with everything you could need. The cliff top walks to Luz in one direction and Cabanas beach in the other are spectacular and the area beyond that are great to explore by car. Could not recommend this property highly enough and we are already trying to figure out how soon we can return! Thanks again, Martin + Claire.

Excellent holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Burgau many times over the years but this is the best house we have stayed in! Ideal location, right in the heart of the old part of the village, with wonderful sea views. Spotlessly clean and plenty of space for family of four ('children' in their 20's!)

Superb roof terrace which we did not use much (rather early in the season) but would be ideal for later in the year.

Second time in Burgau,stayed just round the corner--so knew the property we were renting(location).

beds so comfortable(most important)villa spotless ,facilities all one would need.

Standing at the kitchen window(when tide is in--seemed to be most of the time) one could almost just jump into the sea.

fantastic fish restaurants,especially LA BARACCA .

Lovely cliff-top walks admiring all the local flora/fauna.

would rent this villa again(3 old schoolgirl friends(mid sixties)
