Burgau villa description

An exceptional and peaceful villa offering guests every comfort and convenience situated in an elevated position with incredible sea views. Everything has been designed and arranged with guests in mind. The house offers 5 double bedrooms, 2 en suite bathrooms plus two additional bathrooms in the main house. Beside the pool there is a large games room with bar area offering table tennis, darts and board games plus a wet room shower and wc.

The focal point of the house is the attractive open plan kitchen and dining area which opens into a conservatory and the living room. On the kitchen terrace is an outdoor barbecue, and outside the conservatory is one of several lovely terraces which are perfect for al fresco living and meals. Steps lead from this terrace to the pool - please note that young children must be supervised closely at all times.

The western Algarve region boasts some of the most scenic coastal areas in Portugal and the Costa Vicente Natural Park status of the coastal areas from Luz to Sagres and Aljezur ensures that this area remains mostly natural and unspoiled.

The nearby town of Praia da Luz has several supermarkets and a good selection of restaurants, bars and cafes.
You can walk the coastal cliff path to Praia da Luz in approx 15 minutes . The nearby beaches of Burgau and Salema are also very popular with guests.

The nearest larger town for shopping is Lagos.

Surfers will enjoy the famous surfing beaches along the Alentejo coast - Amado Beach also has surf schools where you can book lessons and hire boards and wetsuits.
