                  We found the villa by chance on the website. We were looking for somewhere quiet, away from the tourist areas with good beaches - and we found it. The villa is absolutely superb - nothing is missed. The welcome pack is generous so if you arrive late at night as we did, you've got a welcome beer and glass of cold wine waiting for you as well as sufficient for a generous breakfast, as well as fresh fruit and snacks. The villa is very well equipped and immaculately clean. The pool is big enough for a good swim to cool down but well worth paying the additional fee to have it heated. The complex the villa is on is beautifully maintained, as are the gardens of the villa itself (and the pool maintenance man came on Friday too). We had a couple of issues while we were there. A burst main water pipe meaning we had no water one day, but this wasn't anyone's fault and the reception staff were extremely helpful and kept us informed. Then the boiler broke down another day so we had no hot water, but, when we reported this to reception, they sorted it straight away and the boiler was fixed the same day. The villa is ideally suited to explore Lagos to Sagres as it's half way between the two. You definitely need a car to stay here. We found some beautiful beaches locally Martinhau, Salema and Cabanas in particular. There are some great places to eat - The Spice Village in Burgau and the Burgau Beach Bar were excellent. We were very disappointed with the Ancora Restaurant in Burgau - overpriced and food not good. The best restaurant by far we found was the Aqua Na Boca in Salema - absolutely superb. Our only slight negative is that the garden was in shade a lot of the day as it's surrounded by trees. We found we were chasing a small patch of sunshine around with the sunloungers. Having said that, we would not hesitate to return to the villa - it was everything we were looking for.
