About the property

Excellent one bedroom apartment close to the beach in Burgau

A Casa Verde is our lovely little one bed apartment in the beautiful Portuguese fishing village of Burgau. The apartment is 20 yards from the sandy beach and close to all of Burgau's fabulous restaurants. The bay of Burgau is one of those fantastic breathtaking bays that comes into vision as you descend the very steep hill. The apartment has a bedroom, bathroom and kitchen/lounge with a small balcony and sea views.

About Tony Clifford

We live in England and also have a house in Portugal in addition to this one bed apartment which we recently purchased and have completely refurbished. We love Burgau and believe that anyone who stays here will enjoy everything that Burgau has to offer. We personally look after the apartment ourselves and also employ a local Burgau property company to help with the cleaning and upkeep.

Tony Clifford purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Tony Clifford chose Vila Do Bispo region

Burgau is an idyllic location with a fabulous bay which is great for surfers and a beautiful beach ideal for children. There are many excellent walks and even more excellent bars and restaurants. Not far away is the larger fishing port of Lagos which offers a beautiful marina, many shops and narrow streets and an excellent golf course.

Wonderful. Summer escape

  • 5 of 5

Lovely 1 bed apartment only 90 seconds from beautiful Burgau beach.

Small balcony with a glimpse of the beach and the water which was lovely to sit on with a glass of wine before heading out at night.

Would recommend and would return.

Cheers Tony

Good spot in great place

  • 5 of 5

Having been to Burgau twice before in large properties and with the whole family this was an empty nesters trip for two. We wanted a small and convenient apartment close to the beach and restaurants. This one ticked all the boxes, was clean on arrival and all the arrangements went well. Burgau remains what it always is, beautiful, relaxing, easy and about as unspoilt as you can get in this day and age. What's not to like?

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was clean and tidy. Small, but with all the essentials. A few extra things in the kitchen would have been useful (such as a microwave). Great location; near the beach. We would stay again.

Clean, bright apartment, excellent value for money.

  • 5 of 5

Easy to book, great communication from Tony. Apartment is in a lovely unspoilt village. Even though we were out of season there were enough bars and restaurants open on the village.

The apartment was excellent value for money, clean, spacious and fully equipped with everything needed, even to fully self cater if that is what you want. English TV channels.

For anyone who can't live without social media, there is. no wifi in the apartment but plenty of bars cafes around with free wifi for it not to be an issue for us. If we come to Burgau again, I know where I will be staying

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a relaxing stay in this deceptively spacious, well equipped and maintained apartment.

The proximity to the beach about 30 yards!!

Burgau is THE best Algarvian village we've visited...and we've been coming for over 15 years! Wish we'd discovered it sooner!

There are plenty of excellent restaurants and bars to sample and explore with the people -both locals and visitors are so friendly.

With the location, standard of the apartment and it's excellent value for money-you won't be disappointed!

Thank you Tony and Julia 😀

Nearest Beach
20 Kilometres
Car: recommended

Burgau is an old Portuguese fishing village and has one of those take your breath away bays as you descend the steep hill down to the brilliant beach that is home to the Beach Bar - by day it is exactly that but of a night it tranforms into a fantastic restaurant with fish to die for and excellent steaks not to mention the fig tart on the desert menu.

Our beautiful little apartment is close to the beach, the bars and all of the restaurants. And not far away are the towns of Lagos, Luz and Sagres where the beer comes from. A lovely place with excellent Cornwall like beaches.

Lagos Zoo is only 15 minutes away and the excellent Slip and Slide waterpark is only just over half an hour away at Lagoa.
