I had not been to the Algarve for 16 years as we usually holiday in the U.S. We only had a week so decided on Portugal. We researched the area and found a beautiful villa in the small village of Burgau, west of Lagos. We were totally surprised and completely delighted with this little piece of heaven. It was so pretty and the coastline was outstandingly beautiful. The location makes it ideal for exploring the West coast and we really loved Sagres. We found some lovely restaurants with excellent food and service. The regional wines were also very good and reasonably priced. For a relaxing holiday I cannot recommend Burgau highly enough. The beaches are covered in golden sand and most of them are in pretty little coves. We will definitely go back and you cannot get a better recommendation than that.
