“Special place.........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Beautiful tranquil spot with an intimate, inclusive atmosphere.....Sally has her work cut out at present but nothing detracts from the relaxing ambience of the place. Got a feeling we will be back!!

Room Tip: Santa Fe is good for privacy but the other rooms look absolutely fine too.

I stumbled upon this guest house after I had booked.most of my holiday so could only stay one night. Next time I will stay longer! The gardens of the house are amazing and pure luxury. The house itself is full of character, the furnishings high quality and great views of the garden. Very close to the centre of Burgau but far enough away to feel like a real haven.

There's no need to go anywhere else! If you want a peaceful and tranquil haven to relax in with bars and restaurants a 10 minute walk away then this is it. Sally and Ralph will welcome you like old friends and nothing is too much trouble. We had the Santa Fe Room but got to look at the others and given the choice wouldn't be able to decide. Wonderful breakfast and bubble seat in the pool is to die for. We didn't want to come home and can't wait for our next visit. See you soon Sally!

Room Tip: All are fabulous, you won't be disappointed.

Second visit to this tranquil haven, as good as all the reviews say. After Ralph's setback, Sally has had a lot to do, but the gardens are more beautiful than ever, comfortable rooms, stunning interior decor, wonderful breakfast.......

If you are a walker, there are many good walks with spectacular views within 45 mins by car....Pontal, Odeceixe, Barrage da Bravura, Silves etc, and you walk to Boca do Rio or continue on to Salema along the cliff tops from Burgau itself. Or go the other way to Praia da Luz.

Very good restaurants generally, but if you want the best value Sunday lunch in the Algarve, and you don't mind a lot of brits and the footie, 5 mins from Sally's is the Pig's Head. Ignore the name, Sunday roast with everything, and a dessert, large portions of very good food for 6 euros.

Salsalito is probably the best B&B in Portugal....thanks to Sally and Ralph.

Room Tip: The Sante Fe room has a private entrance and pool access ( for which you pay extra ), but all rooms...

Do believe all the good stuff said about this small spot - it is true. Sally is the best host, and the rooms are lovely with that personal touch, and the garden with the pool area a sweet haven. It's a short walk to Burgau center with lovely restaurants and bars, and the perfect little beach. We had a great stay, thanks a lot. Hilde and Sturla, Bergen, Norway

We are just back from a week at Salsalito -just go there its amazing- truly amazing!

We had the Santa Fe room by the pool that was perfect but all the rooms were special. The setting ,pool and garden to die for .

Sally is the best host ever with nothing bein too much trouble. You will meet like minded people and sit and have a drink before you go for dinner and maybe just cook a BBQ with everyone.

As its also Sally and Ralphs home there 2 daft dogs who you have to love as they demand it.

There are some great places to eat in the village and good walks along the coast.Just perfect,

Room Tip: All the rooms are wonderful
