Brilliant location and excellent property. All the little extras like washing up liquid, salt and pepper etc were there which make all the difference. Had an amazing time. The view of the beach was brilliant, enjoyed breakfast on the balcony in the sun. Very close to everything in Burgau and plenty of places to eat. Loved it!
Burgau is a perfect spot to explore the Algarve, and the apartment is lovely. Peter was pleasant and very responsive. (Use the air conditioning instead of opening the windows, to avoid mosquito and insect bites.)
Excellent apartment in a charming village
This is a lovely, clean, well-equipped apartment with a beautiful view of the beach from the dinky balcony. We couldn't find any fault (except for possibly the lack of a sharp knife! And that's just me being picky!). It was delightful to start the day watching the sea sparkle and on just two days, watch intrepid surfers brave the waves. We stayed for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Year and our only quibble was that Burgau really is closed for the winter season with virtually nowhere to go out to eat locally until just before the end of the year and even then the choice only expanded slightly. However, we didn't come for the nightlife and were happy to explore Sagres, Lagos and the surrounding areas, all of which offered many excellent choices for lunch. Lagos is also lovely for a wander round the picturesque shops and Cap St Vincent out past Sagres is spectacular. We love the Algarve in the winter and this apartment definitely ticked all the boxes. Also, Mr and Mrs Owen were very helpful and replied extremely promptly to emails. Thank you for a stress-free holiday!
Thank you for your excellent review and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay in Burgau. Burgau is of course quiet in winter, but with great weather and that is exactly what many people like you want during their stay. We are glad you were able to experience the Costa Vincentina at its very best and you would be very welcome to stay again at any time in the future.
Comfortable and well equipped holiday apartment
We had a great stay with wonderful weather (and good surf), in early Dec. We found the apartment had exactly what we needed for a relaxing stay - an incredibly comfortable bed, a nice little balcony for eating and drinking while looking out to sea, and a well equipped kitchen. The large collection of DVDs were an added bonus for cosy winter nights. Would definitely recommend highly and we hope to stay again sometime ourselves
Paul thank you for your lovely review and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. You will be very welcome to stay again at any time in the future. Kind regards. Margaret Owen.
This apartment is excellent. Comfortable, clean and exceptionally well equipped. The view is lovely, and Burgau is a very nice village. It is not at all touristy, but has plenty of restaurants and a decent supermarket. If you wanted more for shopping then Luz is only a 5 minute car ride, or there is a bus. When we visited in late October many of the restaurants may have restricted their opening but nothing to spoil holiday. If we visit this end of the Algarve again we would definitely return here.
Great apartment, great location
Stunning view from the lounge across Burgau bay. Beach within a few minutes, very well presented and equipped apartment , and car parking as well. The village is largely unspoilt with a good choice of eateries and watering holes. It’s great to see that there are still fishermen in the village - still, mercifully, not overrun by tourism.
Thank you very much for your review.
You are very welcome to book with us again.
Special interest holidays:
The location is excellent if you enjoy walking and from the cliff path near the village you can see almost the whole length of the Algarve on a clear day! There are some great surfing beaches nearby and on the West coast and motor racing at the new Autodromo near Portimao.
The fabulous blue flag Burgau beach is a stone's throw away. Watch the surfers and divers or sometimes the dolphins swimming across the bay!
Faro airport is one hour away by car. Car hire can be arranged by contact with the owner.
Cape St Vincent (the end of the world) is only 30 minutes drive to the west and the magnificent Monchique mountains a similar distance north east. The town of Lagos is a short drive or taxi ride along the coast as is the resort of Luz. The new Algarve International Motor Racing Circuit is only 20 minutes away. Onda buses run regularly to local towns and villages.
There are a few local bars, excellent restaurants and shops in the village plus a cash machine. Feel free to read the books or watch the DVDs in the apartment and also feel free to leave books you have read!
