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

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.

A GREAT VACATION IN A GREAT APPARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
We really had a wonderful time (3 1/2 weeks!) in Paul's and Ruth's lovely apartment that didn't leave any wishes open. Whatever we've been looking for was provided and we loved the furniture and Paul's photos. It really is a home from home!

Burgau is exactly what we had been hoping to find: a small fishing village and only a small number of tourists. Shops, restaurants and beach within walking distance so we didn't use the car as often as planned.

The complex also offered a gym and a pool which we didn't often use given the great weather and the ability to enjoy the sea and outdoor sports.

Last but not least we've been impressed by Paul's communication before and after the vacation as it really added a very personal note to a great vacation and made us welcome even before getting on the plane. Thanks again, Paul!

EXCELLENT APARTMENT & LOCATION!

Excellent Apartment & Location!
  • 5 of 5
From the first moment we drove through the village and arrived at the apartment, we had a good feeling this was going to be a holiday to remember, and so it proved. We were greeted by Ana who was extremely helpful. The apartment was modern, spacious, clean and very well equipped, had virtually everything! The balcony has a BBQ which we used several times! Nice and quiet and relaxing. The complex is excellent and has a private pool and gym overlooking the sea. The beach is beautiful and is only a 3 min walk away. The location was perfect, everything within Burgau is walking distance too. A good variety of restaurants and all were very friendly. The owners have been fantastic from the very start and we can't thank them enough. We're already booked up for next year!

WOW- WHAT A WELL EQUIPPED, COMFORTABLE APARTMENT!

  • 5 of 5
We have never stayed in such a well thought out apartment which manages to be practical and well equipped whilst comfortable and spacious at the same time. All mod cons are provided along with the really important things for a special holiday- very comfortable mattress and pillows, electric shutters, Air Con & power showers. We struggled to think of one thing Paul & Ruth had not provided. The kitchen is well equipped for those who like to cook on holiday. The terrace is wonderful for Al Fresco dining and nightcaps overlooking the village.
Burgau itself is great: with a lovely beach and beach bar catering for a wide range of tastes. The nearby beaches of Cabanas Velhas & Salema were also great. And when we returned it was fantastic to have the complex pool so close for an afternoon dip before going out in the evening. For those catering for themselves, the supermarket at Budens was very accessible & provided all we needed. Without a doubt we'll be back as we have a small child and teenagers and felt the area was ideal for both age groups (not forgetting parents needing to recharge their batteries, too!)

Owner's Response: It is very rewarding to receive appreciating comments of the efforts we make to create a "home away from home", and in such a wonderful place as Burgau is.
Thank you so much for your kind words.
Also we are delighted to be able to welcome you back next year.

WONDERFUL APARTMENT, FAB HOLIDAY STAY

  • 5 of 5
I am writing to say thank you for a wonderful holiday we had in your apartment in Burgau from 23.04 until 4.05!!! The place is wonderful - a quiet fishing village, friendly people, beautiful scenery ... The apartment is cozy and thought through to the very tiny detail, it has everything you need for a comfortable stay.
It was wonderful to wake up early in the morning, have breakfast on the sunny balcony and enjoy every moment of the day starting ... And in the peak heat of the day and the evening, the balcony was a perfect place to cool off, have a couple of refreshing drinks and have a BBQ party.
The beginning of spring is a wonderful time in Burgau!! The variety of flowers is impressive! The weather was not too hot, but quite comfortable for walking along the coast and travel by car to explore other towns and beaches, and local attractions. I would strongly recommend a safari tour to all - very knowledgeable safari drivers speak good English and have a great sense of humor, that makes safari trip a great fun experience with honey and fire water tasting, delicious lunch in Monchique and crazy rally driving!
There is a great variety of places to enjoy local food and to taste local wine in Burgau, Luz and Lagos. I tasted Portuguese cuisine for the first time and I loved absolutely everything, well, maybe except the snails - they are definitely not everybody’s cup of tea! Freshly baked bread in Burgau delicious and to die for! We usually bought it in the morning at the bakery, which is located next to the bus stop. In the village there are shops with everything you need, making a stay here very relaxed.

Holiday in Portugal will stay in my memories as a bright sunlight. There is an overwhelming desire to return to this paradise once again...Thank you once again for everything! Best regards, Lena Sokolova (translated from Russian into English)

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.
