Overview

About the property

2 bedroom luxury town house with private pool in Burgau

Our luxury town house is located on the 4* Domus Iberica complex on the outskirts of Burgau, in the Western Algarve.The spacious porch, with disabled access, leads into the hall, with separate toilet, then into the large lounge with dining area.This year we have had a woodchip burning stove installed for the cooler evenings in the winter. Off the lounge is a well equiped kitchen. Both the kitchen and the lounge open onto the south facing pool and patio area, which includes table and chairs for al frecso dining and a BBQ. The pool is approx. 4m x 8m. The 2 bedrooms are on the first floor, the master bedroom having its own south facing balcony and ensuite bathroom. The second twin bedroom has separate shower room. There is WiFi access now in the House

Our town house is located on the outskirts of Burgau village, which is a charming old fashioned fishing village with a superb sandy beach. It is just a 2 minute walk to the village, with everything you need, including a number of bars, restaurants and cafes and just 5 minutes to the clean sandy beach, but it is a rather steep hill to walk down, but you can drive. There are many beaches, bars and restaurants close by. WiFi access is available in a few of the cafes.

Burgau stands on the edge of the Costa Vicentine National Park, with lots of cycle and walking trails to enjoy. Of course being the Algarve there are many Golf courses within a 20 minute drive, the nearest being Parque D Floresta, but also Palmares, Boa Vista and Penina.There are many activities for all ages, from the sports club in Burgau to the zoo at Lagos, to surfing on the west coast to horse riding at Almadena.

Perfect house for an Algarve Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot write enough wonderful things about this townhouse and the town of Burgau!

I'll start with the townhouse. It was perfect for our family of 4. (Kids ages 7 and 5) They loved the pool and we loved the outside patio and dining table. We ate breakfast outside every morning while the kids swam. The patio is also perfect for a glass of wine! The kitchen had everything we needed. The bedrooms are nice sized and both have air conditioners in them. We loved all of the beach toys that are provided and took chairs and toys with us to the beach every day. The townhouse is a very short walk in to town and the beach. In fact, we would go to the beach in the morning and then come back to the house for lunch. Lesley was very responsive before we arrived and Ana was wonderful while we were there. We didn't have any issues, but if we had, I have no doubt that she would have been very responsive!

And, as for the town of Burgau... It absolutely exceeded my expectations! Burgau is the quintessential European beach town- small cobblestone streets, whitewashed buildings, plenty of cafes and restaurants. It was wonderful! The beach was small, but perfect for our family. The first two days we were there, the ocean was calm like a lake. The rest of the days there were some waves and there were some surfers and lots of boogie boarders in the water. There is a nice cafe on the beach and you are also able to rent chairs and umbrellas right on the beach. We went to 2 other beaches during our time in Burgau, but kept coming back to the Burgau beach because we loved it the best! There is a grocery store within walking distance to the townhouse that had everything we needed.

Our stay was amazing and we can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words . We found Burgau to be a lovely village and thats what helped us to buy the house there. We have tried to make the house as user friendly as possible - a home from home. And I think we have just about got there. We look forward to seeing you again. Thank you.

Beautiful town home in a very special village in the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful town home in the quaint, small village of Burgau is the perfect base to explore the Algarve! Only a few minutes from an awesome beach (Praia), though with steep streets to wander down (& then back up!). The restaurants were all excellent..especially the Burgau Beach Bar, the Barraca, and Agua no Boca in Salema (a short drive away..book in advance!) But the main reason to stay here is the laid back, more natural base in Burgau with wonderful accommodations to return to after a day of exploring. This home is as described, with a full stocked kitchen, very comfortable 2 bedrooms upstairs with a balcony off the master, 2 and 1/2 baths, very quick WiFi, and was immaculate on our arrival..There are 4 pool chairs, as well as cushions in the front alcove with beach gear. We have fallen in love with Portugal, from the cities of Porto, Lisbon, Coimbra and Evora, and then to the wild Algarve. The SE of the Algarve is definitely more "touristy", with many concrete resorts and apartments nestled in with great cities such as Tavira and its old city..as well as many small villages en route. But our hearts in the Algarve belong to the SW..and this home! Thank you for an incredible stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for booking our house, and enjoying it so much. It has been a joy writng to you and learning about your family. I'm glad you went to Agua na Boca, and met Paulo and his team. This has to be one of the best restaurants in the area. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Portugal and a safe journey bask to Florida.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

Third time in Burgau, 1st time in this villa. Very homely, meeting all of your holiday needs. Staff at the end of the phone in case of difficulties, but there shouldn't be any as everything is catered for. Burgau village itself is a pleasant 5 minute walk, you never need leave the village if you don't want to. A perfect retreat to get away from it all.

Excellent Property in great location

  • 5 of 5

This was a real find - this excellent property a real 'home from home' it had everything that you could possibly need and even items you didn't realise you did need! The property is very clean and is managed by a very helpful and friendly lady called Ana who is on hand should you need her. From the initial enquiry dealing with Kevin and Lesley was a pleasure, nothing was too much trouble! This was our first holiday in Burgau and our daughter is already begging us to return as she loved the pool and beach, and if we did without hesitation we would book this property again! We had a very relaxing holiday in Burgau with some lovely restaurants (our favourite was Esquina booking advised).

Lovely Villa in Burgau

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several properties in Burgau over the last six years but this villa is definitely the best one, it is clean, has everything you need whilst away and the outside pool area is fantastic. There is plenty of space for a family of four especially teenagers and the village is brilliant for them as is a very safe enviroment.

Have already recommended it to our family and friends.

Thanks Lesley for another great stay in Burgau.

The Sneddens highly recommend this townhouse

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th consecutive year holidaying in Burgau which we love. It retains the charm of a fishing village; has a lovely beach; and a large variety of places to eat and drink. The villagers are also incredibly friendly and welcoming. The centre of the village is only minutes away from the townhouse. It has an ATM, two large grocery shops, a wine/spirit shop, bakers, newsagents, beautician etc. My son was fascinated passing the stand at the top of the village where local fishermen/farmers would sell fresh fish, fruit and veg which seemed to be straight out of the water/off the fields.

Although the advert suggests your own transport is essential we never bother hiring a car. We organise a taxi to pick us up and return us to the airport and during the holiday use the inexpensive local bus service when we want to go into Praia de Luz or Lagos. That said, had we hired a car the owners provided easy to follow directions from the airport to Burgau and the townhouse.

This was our first year at the townhouse but our 7 year old son already has a guarantee from us that we are hiring it again next year. The townhouse is lovely, modern and spacious with a really nice outside area and pool. It is well equipped and maintained - the owners have thought of everything you could possibly want or need on holiday. Their manager Anna is contactable by phone but popped in the first day we arrived to check everything was okay and if we needed any advice. She organised the inside cleaning, the maintenance of the pool and outside area (the pool was very clean) and would say hello as she was passing – checking we were okay in an unobtrusive way.

For a 30 Euro returnable deposit we also had access to a lovely complex which was over the road and had a gym, sauna etc outside play area for children, large pool and snack bar/restaurant

We had a wonderful time at the townhouse and would highly recommend it to others.
