Property description

Quality furnished apartment close to beach & village. The large 28 sq.m. elevated veranda features a built-in BBQ with outdoor furniture and views over Burgau village, and the Monchique mountains in the distance. There are 2 bedrooms, one double, one twin. The double, master bedroom has an En-suite bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath/shower, the second bathroom enjoys a new walk in shower - both bathrooms enjoying under-floor heating. Every room leads onto the sunny balcony, but also with air-conditioning throughout the apartment.

Part of the 4-star Domusiberica complex, set in beautifully landscaped gardens overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, with its own exclusive outdoor communal pool having a retractable cover, and a separate childrens splash pool. There is a large terrace, reception area, the newly-opened 'Tomik' poolside café/bar/ restaurant, and also adjoining the pools is a large, fenced, lawn area ideal for ball games and for children to play in safety. The complex is situated on the edge of the village overlooking the beach and adjacent to the National park.

Take a short 5 minutes stroll to the delightful fishing village of Burgau and a further 2 mins down the cobbled streets to the beach. Burgau has a wide selection of restaurants, cafes and bars; whilst also having a BLUE FLAG beach of clean white sand.

Burgau is easy to reach from Faro airport, taking just under a hour on the new A22 motorway. Car hire is very reasonable and enables exploration of the area. For a really relaxing holiday arrive by Taxibus. The village is self contained with small shops and restaurants so a car is not necessary. There is also a small farmers market most days with fresh fruit, vegetables and fish. Lagos is only a short journey away, and the bus service is good, and taxis reasonably priced.

Monchique is a breathtaking rural town, just 20 minutes inland from Portimao on Portugal’s Algarve Coast. Caldas de Monchique is a charming centuries-old spa town - wonderfully peaceful, ideal to enjoy walks and picnics.

Slide and Splash at Lagoa is the nearest water park for the children, and Zoomarine at Guia (near Albufeira),though a little further away, (forty minute drive) is a great family day out - take swimsuits (there are pools as well).
Heading west towards Sagres and further on, are the more exposed beaches of the western Atlantic coast, including beautiful Amado and slightly more deserted Bordeira, with their great surfing conditions.

Car: Recommended

Burgau 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 of the beach where you can sit and watch the waves roll in.

Burgau is a great base for walking, along the coast to the neighbouring villages of Salema and Luz. Burgau offers a good selection of bars/cafes and excellent restaurants(23 at last count), as well as a variety of activities such as surfing and fishing. Also in the village there is a newsagent, 2 small supermarkets, and a small bakers supplying fresh bread daily.

The historic town of Lagos is only a 10 minute drive away, with quaint cobbled streets, a multitude of varied restaurants 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 - 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 heading both east and west 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 for swimming, and sometimes even bars!

Mild, sunny winters make walking ideal from late September through to springtime, whereas the main summer months can be too hot.

The southern sunshine of the western-Algarve provides tremendous enjoyment, away from the crowds, in this beautiful unspoilt corner of the Algarve. Superb for coastal & mountain walking.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Steve & Mandy Taylor, based in the Midlands in England, with grown children. All being well, in a few years time, hoping to spend more of our leisure time in this wonderful location.

Why the Owner Chose Burgau:
Following our late discovery of this beautiful part of the world, during a half-dozen years of enjoying the area based at our good friends apartment, we decided that we, and our family and friends, could enjoy many more years in this special location.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
From waking in the morning to bright sunshine in the bedroom (if preferred!), walking to the village baker for the fresh bread ( the smell alone evoking marvellous memories), enjoying breakfast on the veranda, and later enjoying a wine in the evening, reflecting on the day, while the sun basks the village as it slowly sets - Perfect!
