Dark oak furniture and local canvas wall art adds to the quality ambiance of the apartment. The kitchen is well equipped and well stocked with utensils, glasses etc for dining in.

The apartment is situated within the 4 star DomusIberica complex, set in beautifully landscaped gardens overlooking the sea and has a swimming pool & kids splash pool, climbing frame and lawned area for ball games. It is just 3 minutes stroll to the delightful fishing village of Burgau and another 2 mins along cobbled streets to the beach. Burgau boasts a superb selection of restaurants, cafes and bars; the BLUE FLAG beach is very pleasant with clean white sand

Additional information on DomusIberica complex: DomusIberica Burgau has its own exclusive clubhouse only for use of guests. On-site facilities include outdoor communal pool & children’s pool, bar and restaurant. Adjoining the pool is a large fenced lawn area ideal for ball games and for children to play in safety. The complex is situated on the edge of the village overlooking the beach and adjacent to the National park. A truly peaceful and beautiful location.

Travel and access: Burgau is easy to reach from Faro airport, taking just under a hour on the new A22 motorway. Car hire is very reasonable and enables exploration of the area. For a really relaxing holiday arrive by Taxi. The village is self contained with shops and restaurants, there is also a farmers market several mornings with fresh fruit, vegtables and fish. The bus service is good and taxis are reasonably priced. Lagos is only a short journey away, for a fabulous day or night out.

Surrounding area: Monchique is a breathtaking rural town, nestled between the hills of Foia and Picota, 20 minutes inland from Portimao on Portugal’s Algarve Coast. A green oasis of lush gardens, flowers and butterflies the old craggy rural town sits amongst steep cobbled streets in the Serra De Monchique mountain range, commanding a majestic view of the Western Algarve below. Caldas de Monchique is a charming centuries-old spa town. A wonderfully peaceful and tranquil setting to enjoy walks and picnics.

Slide and Splash at Lagoa is the nearest water park for somewhere to cool off on those hot summer days and Zoomarine at Guia (near Albufeira) although a little further away, (about a forty minute drive) is another great family day out - take your swimsuits as there are pools as well. Going west towards Sagres, there is a Blo karting track just beside the N125 past Vila do Bispo and of course there are always the more exposed beaches of the western Atlantic coast around Sagres for surfing.

The highest recommendation for a superb holiday

  • 5 of 5
Our first trip to Portugal.
WOW!! what a superb Apartment and a fabulous location.
Can we first thank Paul and Ruth for letting us use their wonderful apartment for the week and please pass on our sincere apologies for not leaving Ana a well deserved tip. This was due to frantic last minute rush when our taxi to airport arrived half an hour early. What a wonderful lady Ana is. She made us very welcome on arrival and came to see us on our last night to say goodbye. The apartment was immaculate on arrival and we had a lovely welcome pack. We will make it up next time Ana !!!
The apartment was excellent and the furnishings and prints on the walls throughout were fabulous with every detail thought out to make the stay enjoyable. The onsite facilities were great with a fab restaurant,gym,sauna, hot-tub etc although we didn't get chance to use them, as we had so many other things to do.
Burgau is a wonderful location and the "Onda" buses are very reasonable and run regularly to other nearby towns if you dont want to hire a car. My husband and I went for a walking holiday and what a wonderful experience, even though I managed to twist my knee on the first day and hobbled for the rest of the week. The cliff top walks give the most incredible views and the peace and tranquility was amazing with beautiful flowers everywhere and scents of pine and eucalyptus.
Small local supermarket just downhill from bus stop provides just about everything you need (there is a downstairs dept in corner of shop so don't miss it). Prices were about the same as big supermarket in Praia de Luz. Try the local produce. Shops don't sell any medical products at all so beware and nearest chemist is in Praia de Luz (Not open on a Sunday). You would have to travel to Lagos to find one open on a Sunday.
Wonderful pizza restaurant just on corner opposite bus stop and fabulous cafe further down the hill on right just up from the sea. Ask the lady there for a "big beer" !!!! - wonderful after a long walk on a hot day.
The weather was amazing all week with temperatures of 24 degs +. Lovely views in the evening off the balcony watching the sun go down whilst enjoying a glass of wine.
The Portugese people are lovely and the pace of life is so relaxing. See the gentlemen who sit on the bench to chat and watch the world go by outside the Pizza Cafe in the shade in the morning, then move to the bus stop to catch the shade in the afternoon.
A perfect holiday in every way

  • 5 of 5
We dont often give five stars for anything!
Burgau remains as unspoilt and welcoming as ever and only changes slowly. The weather was perfect and our old haunts, particularly the Beach Bar, Ancora and Ivos cocktail bar, remain as ever and real home from homes to us.
The apartment was beautifully furnished, comfortable and completely equipped. It was all so good that we have already booked for 2015. Thank you Paul and Ruth.

Superb Apartment in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was fantastic,superbly appointed and spotlessly clean, the best we've ever stayed in. Anna met us on arrival and was really helpful offering advice on where to go and things to do. The pool was well maintained and the recently reopened pool bar and restaurant (Tomic) served high quality meals and drinks at very reasonable prices. They also have live music on certain nights of the week which were very popular so advisable to book. The Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a car and so explored the local area including Sagre and it's Forts, Lagos, Luz and other local villages. The roads are quiet and driving around is easy and stress free. We could have done a lot more but were too busy relaxing to drive around all day, so plenty of scope for our next visit! Burgau offers plenty of choice in restaurants and the ones we tried all served great food at good prices, the girls particularly liked the Pizza restaurant on the corner opposite the bus stop. For more choice Lagos is only about 5 miles away and is a lot bigger with a lovely marina. Spent a few days lazing on the local beach which was uncrowded with golden sand and has a great beach bar which is really popular with good reason. It's a lovely place to be with a good menu and great value evening meals with a brilliant singer / guitarist performing every Wednesday. All in all a great experience which I'm sure we will repeat at some point.

Paul and Ruth provided an exceptionally good information pack including precise instructions from the airport (we didn't put a foot wrong) and advice on places of interest, thanks for that and for a great holiday.

Owner's Response: Great to hear so many positive comments in one review!. The new on-site "Tomic" Bar & Restaurant is certainly proving a winner, attracting many more glowing reports.
Good to hear you wish to return, you are more than welcome.

Lovely apartment in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a wonderfully relaxing stay in Burgau with November sunshine and superbly comfortable accommodation. The very spacious apartment has every home comfort and a huge terrace for outdoor eating. It is really nicely furnished, spotlessly clean on arrival and Ana was on hand to explain how everything worked and provide lots of local information. There are maps and an excellent welcome book in the apartment with details of walks, restaurants, bus services etc.
We thoroughly enjoyed the coastal walks with beautiful views along the way - the area has been beautifully preserved and the towns are low-rise and very pretty.
Even at this very quiet time of year we had a good choice of restaurants. The bus service to Luz and Lagos is excellent. We would definitely recommend the apartment and the area.

Car: not necessary

Burgau, often described as the Little Paradise in the Algarve, is located 10 minutes drive west of Lagos. It sits on the edge of a National park and is still a working fishing village. The Blue Flag beach itself is beautifully clean with golden sands and children can play safely under a watchful eye. There is a lovely restaurant at the back where you sit and overlook the beach and watch the waves roll in. A wonderful area for walks, you can trek up on the big hill that is the backdrop of Burgau or along the coast to the neighbouring villages of Salema and Luz. Burgau offers a good selection of bars/cafes and excellent restaurants (15) as well as a variety of activities such as surfing and fishing. Also in the village there is a newsagent and 2 supermarkets. The historic town of Lagos is a short drive away, with quaint cobbled streets, delicious waterside restaurant and a stunning marina. Lagos is a fantastic town that can certainly be enjoyed by all age groups, with a good nightlife.

***WALKING IN THE ALGARVE Discover Algarve's secret corners***

In the Algarve there is a large protected coastline which stretches all the way from Sines to Sagres and then eastwards to Burgau. - it is the Cape St Vincent Natural Park. It became a protected area in order to preserve its unique natural beauty and fabulous flora and fauna. This coastline offers a unique walking opportunity, with a varying geology giving different coastal scenery, seascapes and wild life. This is the Algarve as it used to be before any commercial development.

The well used coastal paths can be accessed directly from the apartment, with good routes both ways from Burgau. Going to the left you can get to Luz, then Porto de Mos, Ponta da Piede (lighthouse) and finally to Lagos.

To the right, you join the footpath to Salema. You are now entering the national park and the route offers stunning views and is a wonderful walk. This is totally unspoilt coastline and the walk is wonderful any time of the year, but especially so in spring when it is awash with wild flowers. You will discover hidden beaches and have time to take a swim.

Mild, sunny winters make walking ideal late September to early June. July and August are generally too hot.

Experience spring time in the land of orange trees, almond blossom & orchids. Bathed in southern sunshine-away from the crowds in this beautiful unspoilt corner of the Algarve. Superb for coastal & mountain walking.
