Wonderful stay in Burgua!

  • 4 of 5

Janice's vrbo couldn't have been nicer. Clean and quiet and close to everything. We absolutely loved it!!! It's just a stone throw from many restaurants and the lovely Burgua beach. Janice even provided extra beach towels and a sun umbrella. The bathroom had a bathtub so it was fantastic to take a bath after a day at the beach. We would highly recommend Janice's rental in a heartbeat. Absolutely wonderful. The only item missing was Wifi but this was available - free - at several of the bars and coffee shops. While it was a not a problem for us someone else may wish to have this available to them.

Great apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for one week and found the apartment more than adequate for what we wanted. Perfect location as right near supermarket, shops, and bus stop (if you fancy exploring beyond Burgau).

More than enough space for a couple and everything was really clean with kitchen etc all well equipped.

Would recommend.

Beautiful spacious and adequate

  • 5 of 5

The space inside is amazing and the layout is terrific. Despite being regularly used for some time this cottage conversion shows little wear and tear. It was lovely to return to a cool cottage following a hard day on the beach. If, like us, you lean toward self-catering rather than eating out all the time, there are adequate utensils and crockery to cope.

Everything about this cottage conversion helps toward a relaxing stress free holiday. It is far enough away from lively restaurants but close enough to the beach for enjoyable walks to wherever you are going and provides a peaceful environment.

The beach is clean and there is sufficient space not to feel too crowded (our first week clashed with spring half-term). This beach is ideal if you are taking children.

Burgau is a good place to visit and recommending this cottage conversion is easy, recommended.

Quiet and roomy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic experience in this cottage and the little village of Burgau. The home was very clean, extremely spacious, and had everything we needed for a 5 day stay. It is located in the center of town, literally steps away from the beach and numerous restaurants. In hot weather, the cottage was cool and located in a quiet part of town - made for great sleeps.

If you are looking for a real Portuguese experience, away from the crowds, and great restaurants, local grocer and bakery - this cottage is perfect for you. It is also a great location for you to do day trips and explore the beautiful western Algarve towns and beaches of Lagos, Luz, Salema, Fugueira, Zavail, and the Atlantic beaches of Sagres, Amando, and Bordeira. Most withing a 15 minute drive and the Atlantic beaches, less than 45 minutes!

The owner Janice made sure your visit was a good one, was very responsive, and left a great catalog of things to do and where to eat which was extremely helpful.

Burgau was one of our favorite villages of the western Algarve and this cottage comes highly recommended - we will be back!
