About Gary Wilson

Gary and Judith....where do we begin...

We have been holidaying in Burgau and the surrounding area for about 20 years...makes us sound old doesn't it! However we are both in our early 50's (daren't say more as the other half would get me..) Gary (me) is an avid sportsperson who also likes travel and reading, but especially F1 motor racing. My son and I attended our first Grand Prix in 2009 and we will both be attending lots more...hopefully. Judith is also keen on football, watching not playing that is, and we both like to spend our free time in Burgau.

We only have the one child, James our son and we have so many happy memories of great family holidays to Burgau that in 2007 we decided we should buy a property. I must say our local builder Jose was a great guy and we are now firm friends.

Gary Wilson purchased this villa in 2007

Why Gary Wilson chose Vila Do Bispo region

After having so many great family holidays we decided we would love a place of our own in Burgau.

The village is large enough to have about a dozen or so cafe/bars/restaurants/shops but small enough to retain it's Portugueseness (if you know what I mean...)

The blue flag sand beach in Burgau is a very pleasant horseshoe shape with cliffs at each side giving it a very protected and safe feel, and the whole area of the Western Algarve has such superb beaches and scenery.

The people in Burgau are very friendly and we get lots of people commenting on the friendliness of the village and indeed lots of our guests are previous visitors to the area.

What makes this villa unique

The village of Burgau is not enormous and with our property being newly built in 2007 it comes with lots of modern facilities and appliances. Ours is one of a very few properties available in Burgau within 5 minutes walk of the beach that has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. This makes it ideal for extended families or friends etc.

The property stands on a lovely quite cul-de-sac within a couple of minutes walk to the shops and most restaurants and within 5 minutes walk to the beach.

We can provide internet access via a PAYG router for a small addition charge.

We have wifi internet access available throughout the villa at a very small fee. Outside: The villa stands surrounded on three sides with lots of space for sunbathing, either around the 5m x 3m private pool or also at the front and side of the house.

The villa is only a couple of minutes walk from supermarkets and restaurants, bars and shops etc. Not forgetting the award winning and very safe blue flag beach at Burgau which is within 5 minutes gentle stroll. We have provided plenty of sun-lounges and reclining chairs for guests to maximise their sun bathing as well as an outside dining table and seating for 8.A sun parosol is also provided to keep those dining in shade if they so wish. Portuguese BBQ now built.We have 8 large luxury beach towels available for guests, which leaves more room for other essentials and saving weight when packing. A large cool bag and ice packs are included. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All bath towels and bedlinen is provided and is luxury Egytian cotton, very soft and welcoming. We can also provide 8 very large beach towels for you use. The villa is cleaned before and after every let and the bedlinen changed each week. Other: A very large 2nd lounge/games room. This lounge has been set up for the teenagers and younger ones with another flat screen TV and Playstation 2, with DVD with lots of top movies. Also in this area is a pool table. State of the art sound system.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

Struggle to fault this place, only real minor negative was sun moves away from pool round about mid afternoon. Though for some of the party this was a blessing, so it's the old each to their own.

House itself had everything you would need on holiday and more. Roughly 10 min stroll to supermarket and say another 5 and you are in the middle of Burgau, so well situated too.

The owners were really helpful when we emailed them in run up to holiday and the couple who manage the property for them couldn't have been nicer if they tried.

Would happily return and recommend.

Special interest holidays:

The area surrounding Burgau is a nature lovers delight. There are numerous coastal walks from Burgau eastwards to Luz and Lagos and west to Salema and further afield. Some of these walks are as little as 40 minutes others can be planned for either half a day or full days. One thing is certain the coastal scenery on these walks is stunning and one not to be missed.

For sports lovers in general we have provided tennis rackets and balls for guests to use at either the Burgau sports centre (within 5/10 minutes walk) or at the Parque da Floresta (5 minutes by car). Also at the Burgau sports centre is badminton, squash, table tennis and aerobics. For those guests that feel like being pampered there is an excellent spa facility at Parque da Floresta where any number of spa treatments can be enjoyed in a luxury facility and all with a 5/10 minute drive. For water sport lovers their are several surf schools in the area and body boarding is very popular at several of the local beaches.


The award winning Burgau blue flag beach is literally on your doorstep. It is a gentle 5 minute stroll. However you can be on a different beach for every day of a two week holiday and all of these are within a 15 minute drive. They are large sweeping bays or very quiet and secluded beaches. What is common to them all is the amazing blue waters and stunning scenery. We have left details of most of these beachs in our visitor information book, but please feel free to recommend others that you like.


Faro international is the airport for the Algarve. You can reach our villa by car within the hour from the airport. You can hire cars from a number of car rental firms at the airport or alternatively we can arrange transfers to and from our villa for those that do not want to drive or only want a car for a few days. The one thing that is certain is that once at our villa a car is not necessary as you are centrally located and close to all supermarkets, restaurants, bars, cafes and shops.


Lagos is often described as architecturally the prettiest town on the Algarve. There is the new marina from where you can enjoy the amazing dolpin safaris or the old town which is a miriad of cobbled streets with a vast array of individual and craft shops. Lagos is within 10 km of our villa and is approx 10 minutes by car. Luz and Salema or both within 5 minutes by car and are approx 3 or 4 km. Further west you can reach Sagres and Cape St Vincent, and these are both within 30 mins by car.

Further Details:

We provide an extensive guest information book which is crammed packed with details of restaurants, beaches, water parks, a zoo and other general information and places to visit.
