Booking was straight forward and owner very quick to respond to all enquiries, villa daisy was easy to find with the details provided and the keys and entry to the property was also very straight forward, the villa itself was lovely very spacious and lots of room, there was only the three of us! everything was provided and the villa was very clean and had everything you needed for the stay, there is British tv channels and wi fi so you have the best of both worlds, the swimming pool was lovely and heated, the villa is in a lovely location very quiet and not far away from the beach and other attractions, as a frequent visitor to Portugal i would have no hesitagtion in recommending this villa and the location, many thanks to Paul for a lovely holiday, hope to be coming back soon.

Lovely villa on quiet site

5 of 5
We spent a week at this lovely villa with my parents and had a really great time. We choose the villa because it is on the Alma Verde site, we had visited the site last year with friends and were impressed with how quiet it was and only 5-10 minutes away from quaint Burgau. Right from the word go Suzanne answered all my inquiries promptly and her instructions and directions were spot on. We arrived late on the Saturday night, courtesy of Easy Jet problems and the up grades going on in Faro airport, to find the villa so clean and welcoming. Suzanne had provided a welcome pack which was amazing and really thoughtful. The villa has plenty of space for 6 people so for the four of us it was really good, Mum and Dad downstairs with their own en-suite and no stars to negotiate and us upstairs with en-suite and balcony. Mum was especially pleased that she could watch BBC TV!!! We spent most of the week enjoying the garden which some people have said is shady, this is a bonus when it is hot (30 plus most days we were there) reading, eating and relaxing. If you want full sun you can sit on one of the two balconies. We did have a problem with the pool heating but the management team on the site were quick to attend. Burgau is a lovely little village with lots of nice restaurants and a great bar serving the most amazing G&T's! Lagos is the main town and is easily reached in 20 minutes. We ventured up into the mountains one day which we would highly recommend for the drive and the views. The week went far too quickly but we all had a lovely holiday and hope that we will be able to return to this part of the Algarve again next year and if we can we would definitely book this villa again. Thank you Suzanne and family for sharing your villa with us.

Great location, lovely villa

5 of 5
Great location a short drive from the lovely village and beach of Burgau, and with easy access to Lagos and the further western Algarve. Good sized pool in a secluded garden. Quality BBQ and well furnished outdoor area for sunbathing and eating. The inside of the house is beautifully done to make it feel like a home rather than a holiday house. Very well equipped kitchen. Local management very responsive, and pool/garden maintenance very unobtrusive. All made for a very pleasant and relaxing stay. Can only thoroughly recommend it.
