About Anne Marie

This is our ninth year renting the villa and we have had very positive feedback in terms of the house being well equipped and Burgau being a fantastic holiday location. Unfortunately, the pump went on the pool in August,2014 and we had to wait 48 hours for delivery and installation of another. All is well again and guests after had no problems. We have three kids ranging in age from 15 down to 10 so as a result the villa has been set up with kids in mind- free cots,children and family DVDs, pool fence for security, ipod docking station, expresso and latte machine,toys etc.

Villa is usually well stocked with dishwasher tablets, detergents, beach towels etc.

The restaurant at club house has free WIFI and is great value in food.

Everything to keep the children & teenagers happy! We love the other beaches in the high season - take a stroll out to Las cabanas restaurant and beach out through the national park.

Anne Marie purchased this villa in 2006

Why Anne Marie chose Vila Do Bispo region

Burgau is just a gem. The location is great - close to the village but at the same time quiet and the view out across to national park and sea is ideal. It is never too busy on the beach and there are lots of other beaches nearby if required. This is a great location for winter sun and golf.

But even better in spring for walks in the park with all the flowers.

October is my favourite time of the year in Burgau-the sea is at its warmest- warm water to swim in and warm weather but not too hot!! It really shortens the winter!

May and June are great -just before it gets busy and ideal if you don't like spending your time putting on constant layers of sunscreen -if you are as fair as me!

What makes this villa unique

We love being able to go down to get our fresh bread from the little bakery in the morning and setting up the order for the wholewheat bread which is scrumptious! (Ask them to keep it for you everymorning)

Also the local market in the morning with the local farmers selling off the back of their little vans and lorries.

On Thursdays and Fridays they have fish!

Tomiq the restaurant in the club does great food and juices -not to be missed and so friendly

We love the fisherman going out at night to do their fishing and in winter the total wildness of the place on a stormy day!

Most of all the beach and beach bar at anytime of the year with the amazing food and views!

Fabulous family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Anne-Marie and Kevin for renting your wonderful villa, we had a fabulous family holiday. The kids absolutely loved the pool, we took the pool guard down because our kids are a bit older. For anyone with younger children you can put the guard around the whole pool or partially around the pool, it's easy to put up or take down to suit your preference. The villa had everything we needed with so many extra touches that usually you have to provide for yourself. Beach towels are included which is a massive bonus, hand wash, washing powder and conditioner, lots of herbs and spices, olive oil, cling film, foil etc. The dishwasher was also a massive bonus! The villa is an easy walk to the bakery but get there early, all the delicious treats sell out quickly!! Less than 10 mins walk to the beach at Burgau or a longer walk along the coastal path to the beautiful Cabanas Velhas beach. It's a short drive to Lagos for shopping and chilling in this pretty historic town and marina. A 30-40 min drive to slide and splash water park which was so much fun. All in all the villa is in a great location with great facilities and gives you the choice of doing as much as you want or as little as you want. Great for families or a small group of friends. We can't wait to go back.

Great villa

  • 5 of 5

Really well equiped villa. Have stayed in many and there isnt as much as 1 toilet roll supplied but this villa has all you need till you get to the shop. Kitchen well equiped for cooking at home too. Nicely located within walking distance to the village, beach etc. Really nice owners to deal with. Also as parent's to 2 small kids the fence around the pool is a massive bonus as makes holiday much more relaxing. Will definitely be back.

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

I was just booking again for this year & I saw Angela's review . I don't normally write reviews but I have stayed in this Villa on 3 occasions over the years & it has always been a wonderful expierence so I just had to write this. I have gone back because the extras supplied by the owner, a welcome pack & a supply of dishwasher tabs, washing powder( I have stayed in other places with dish washers but they don't supply tabs so you have to buy some). Also there are books, games & Dvd's so handy with kids available. The pool was always perfect when I arrived in september so the problem was fixed & the safety fence around the pool gives such peace of mind with Kids.

The Village is fabulous and morning market is great to get fresh bread & fruit for breakfast. There are lots of options to eat out & you are so close to the beach. I would highly recommend the resort and this Villa.

Villa and Pool

  • 2 of 5

This villa was ok. I have stayed on this complex twice before in an apartment which was beautiful. On arrival, this time, there were several light bulbs not working and this took a few days to fix and the pool was cloudy and green with algae. After several conversations with the owners the pool was cleaned up over three days. On our last day the pool started to turn green again and the bottom was nearly covered with algae (green slime), we therefore lost use of the pool for 4 days of our 9 day stay. Burgau is a beautiful place that I have been visiting for over 30 years and it hasn't changed much at all, its a very quiet and relaxing place with lots of restaurants and bars to enjoy. I hope to return again next year and would definitely stay on this complex again, I would choose another villa (with pool).

Special interest holidays:

Great area for hiking, cliff walks and also new bike trails. Amazing selection of excellent restaurants in particular the Beach Bar.

The cliff walk from Burgau to Luz is amazing and not too far- a bit rough but take your time- it should only take take 40 minutes- Have a coffee and return -bring the camera!

If you walk west along the cliffs you will have a longer walk but even more breathtaking scenery!

Also great road out to the west for jogging.

Tennis courts at the Burgau Tennis club are highly recommended


The beach in Burgau is only 4 minutes walk down the hill. The Beachbar is highly recommended for lunch or dinner and they rent sunloungers and shaded palms. There is another beach about 1 km out a country/national park road/ track which is lovely to walk to and gather the flowers and observe the wildlife as you go.


Faro airport is less than 1 hour drive from Burgau and the A22 motorway makes this an easy drive. Car hire is recommended (Luzcars are usually the best deal) to take full advantage of the beautiful countryside and deserted beaches. However, there is a regular bus service to Luz and Lagos. From Lagos there are bus and rail connections to Faro and other towns on Algarve, the rest of Portugal and even to towns in Spain such as Seville. Taxis are inexpensive and airport transfers can be arranged.


The villa is in Burgau but Praia de Luz is a few minute drive to the east and Lagos (the nearest large town) is a 10 min drive. To the west Sagres is less than 20 minute drive which is ideal for windsurfing/kiting enthusiasts. The area is steeped in history and provides a fantastic base for anyone who enjoys learning about Portuguese history.

Further Details:

There are shops, supermarkets, restaurants and pubs in the village. The Burgau sports centre has a pool, tennis courts, playground and other activities for adults and children.

There is a new large municipal pool just open in Lagos close to the marina.

There is an ATM in the village and many others in Lagos. There are more restaurants, ATMs, shops, pharmacy etc in Luz. LUZDOC provide a 24 hour medical service in Luz with English speaking doctors who are highly qualified and efficient. There are excellent hospitals in Lagos. Many medicines that normally need prescriptions at home are over the counter in Portugal and most pharmacists speak very good English and are helpful.

Burgau has 2 supermarkets and a grocery shop that are reasonably priced. However, if you want a good steak for the grill- I highly recommend Boavista supermarket in Luz. Take the cliff walk over and get the bus back- you will feel like you have earned that steak!

Lagos has hundreds of restaurants so you are spoilt for choice. If you are feeling very ambitious you can always go to the market in Lagos and pick out your own fresh fish for the grill.

3 main supermarkets in Lagos provide a huge array of fish and meat. In addition, there is also an Aldi and Lidl.

Most have English cheddar and ham at the counter for a quick lunch.
