The beach is absolutely stunning, as well as the fabulous views from the apartment - lounge and bedroom windows. Our host was amazing, adding complimentary touches to our anniversary trip to make us feel extra welcome and make our time there that much more enjoyable. If you are looking to get away from the summer madness in the Algarve, head here for some tranquillity and R&R! It's an easy 25 minute drive from Sagres/Villa de Bispo/Burgau. Pop in at the Gulli Bistro on the way, for a delicious meal. Loved it!
