“Excellent apartment in a quiet location.”
Reviewed July 11, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Lovely situation 5 mins walk to a fabulous beach and great restaurants and bars. Apartment was very comfortable and well set-up. Breakfast on the large veranda watching the sun-rise was always worth waking for.

“A most relaxing 5 days”
Reviewed June 1, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This apartment pretty much has everything one needs for a self-catering holiday. It's spacious,modern,well equipped,well located. I'm sure it has other attributes as well but I just can't think of any more. We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days. We didn't have a car. We went into Lutz one day by local bus but in all honesty we much preferred Burgau. There isn't an awful lot to Burgau except it's charm,gorgeous beach (small by Portaguese standards) & a few wonderful restaurants serving great food,especially fish. I didn't eat meat for the 5 days we were here.
Before I conclude,I would just like to mention the apartment again. One small criticism from me,& I would like to think it is constructive,& that would be the addition of two good quality parasols,one for the balcony & one for the roof terrace. I am a fair,& "delicate little flower" & I struggled a bit having breakfast on the balcony in the morning sunshine.
I do hope Elizabeth will accept my suggestion as positive feedback because the apartment was excellent in every way. Would I recommend it? Absolutely. Would we return ourselves (my wife & myself)? Absolutely & without any hesitation whatsoever.
Our thanks to Elizabeth,& her agents in Portugal,Destination Algarve,for making us so welcome,& thank you for the generous welcome pack of goodies also. It was a delightful stay,which we would like to repeat.

Many thanks for taking the time to submit a review, and delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay. Absolutely most welcome another time too! Thanks for mentioning the parasols. There is a parasol base, and we are suggesting that guests buy a sun umbrella for about 15 euros locally, as in practice they only last 3-4 weeks. Reason being is that whilst the weather may seem tranquil, the area is prone to sudden gusts of wind, especially around showers, and sometimes at night. However, we perhaps need a more permanent shaded area for the height of Summer, and will see what can be done. The side terrace has sun in the morning, whilst the roof terrace has more sun in the afternoon, so that most times of the year there is some shading available. There is a large sandy beach 3 miles west of Burgau, and some surfing beaches about 25 miles away (West facing). Burgau certainly has a more homely feel than say Luz, making it ideal for relaxation. Thanks again for your kind review!

“Everything you'd want in a great location”
Reviewed April 15, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Our usual flat in Burgau was booked up, but we saw this on Trip Advisor - and we were delighted with every aspect. This modern two-bedroomed, two-bathroom apartment has a terrace with unobstructed views over the village from every main room, plus a huge roof terrace with sea view. The kitchen is well-equipped with all appliances, and plentiful household essentials which is a real bonus. Only a few minutes walk from the village centre, shops, bars and down to the beach, and there are bicycles provided if you fancy going further. Although we had to pay a fee for arriving late at night, this was more than compensated for by a large welcoming gift of food and drink. Really, can't fault it.

What a lovely review, thank you! Great that you enjoyed your stay too. The views are hard to beat for sure! With this apartment, our agent likes to welcome guests on arrival, and 'show off' the apartment, but including how to work TV, internet etc,b provide local info and answer questions. They take great pride in their services but understandably it's a long day if waiting up past 10pm , midnight, so there is a modest charge to cover overtime costs. We nevertheless make every effort to provide an excellent service to help guests settle in quick, and enjoy their stay! Thanks again, and always welcome another time too.

“Excellent”
Reviewed January 4, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The property owner/agent was professional to deal with, prompt, responsive and helpful. Superb directions to this somewhat remote property.

The property had all you could need, was clean and nicely furnished. Generous size and high quality accommodation.

7 mins walk to the beach.
A quiet area of the Algarve and a car is needed to get around.

A little late, but just to thank you very much for taking the time to provide a review. In Winter, this area can be quiet, and great for relaxation and less 'touristic' thereby the village of Burgau retains original charm. The cafe 250m away is open all year, and often frequented by expats out of season - and with plenty of outdoor seating by the pond! A car is convenient, but you can easily walk to all amenities - or use a bus.. regular service to Luz and Lagos. In Winter of course, it is good to explore. Lagos is the main large town, 10km/6miles away. The apartment overlooks the village and towards the sea. It is not really a 'remote' area for those seeking such destinations. However, compared with some touristic destinations nearer the airport, it may well seem quiet out of season. We want all our guests to be 100% happy, and we make every effort to present the apartment as best we can. We now provide UK TV with catch up, adding to the attraction of this apartment. Thank you again for the great review!

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed July 3, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

Just had a perfect week in Burgau. The accommodation was excellent. From my first communication with Elizabeth I knew everything would be right. She responds very quickly to any enquiry & is extremely friendly & efficient. The apartment reflects Elizabeth with its attention to detail , care & consideration. We were met by Fiona who made us feel at home & seemed to understand how, after a very early start , you just need to be shown everything as quickly as possible & then left to unpack & unwind. She was great ! We were a little overwhelmed by the welcome pack. By far the best we have ever had. Bread, water, wine ( & a decent bottle - not plonk!) cheese, butter, ham, cornflakes, jam & a lovely big dish of fruit. It was great not to have to go out straight away for supplies. The apartment itself was very comfortable, very clean, well cared for & obviously respected by other visitors. We loved the view from the balcony both during the day & night ( great for watching shooting stars) & what a length! Certainly not short of space. Then there is the roof terrace, well what can I say. Superb furniture. We also loved the fact that the sun shone on the balcony all morning but then was in shade for the afternoon which made it perfect to sit on to read. The roof terrace was in full sun all day. A lovely apartment in a lovely little village

“Lovely apartment in ideal location”
Reviewed October 8, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We've had a great 2 weeks staying in the apartment. The location is ideal with the beach, restaurants and bars within easy walking distance but they are far enough away to allow peace and quiet in the apartment. We found it wonderful to take in the lovely views of Burgau from both the balcony and the roof top terrace.

The apartment itself had more than everything we needed during our stay and was furnished to a very good quality. The welcome pack on our arrival was also very much appreciated and meant we didn’t need to do a shop on our first day there.

We were impressed with the service we received from the owners and the local management team who made us feel that nothing was too much trouble - again, much appreciated.

Burgau is not at all commercialised and there are plenty of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes with most if not all of the very friendly staff speaking English. Although we didn't need to we hired a car and it was worth it to visit some of the local places which are steeped in history. We didn't use it but there is a local bus service to Lagos.

We definitely want to have a return trip!

“A relaxing and cosy home from home!”
Reviewed September 22, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We really couldn't have asked for more from this apartment. We were greeted on arrival and shown everything in the apartment that we needed to be shown. We arrived quite late at night so we were delighted to see the fridge had been stocked with the essentials (including wine and Portuguese custard tarts which are definitely essentials in my eyes!). The apartment is spacious and cosy, a real home from home. It has air conditioning and really comfortable beds. I stayed in the double and had the main bathroom for myself and my friend stayed in the second bedroom (with two single beds) and had the ensuite - perfect! The views in the morning from our bedroom balcony windows were beautiful and the perfect way to wake up. With this apartment you are spoilt with not only a large balcony for the early morning sunshine but also a large roof terrace to capture the last of the afternoon/evening sunshine. The apartment is only a short 5-10 minute walk to the main village. Make note that if you arrive after 10pm there is a small fee as the staff come to meet you to give you the keys.

The owners and managing agents were extremely helpful from start to end - thank you. I will definitely be recommending this apartment to friends and family and will definitely visit again and I would definitely recommend Burgau, such a charming place! :)
