The Western Algarve beaches are amongst the most beautiful and least crowded in Europe. There are numerous sheltered sandy coves close by on the South coast; Burgau and Salema are traditional fishing villages with clean sandy beaches, cosy beachside bars and terrace restaurants. Burgau is just 2km from AlmaVerde. Between there and Salema lie the quieter beaches of Cabanas Velhas and Boca do Rio, and to the West of Salema are Figueira, Furnas, Ingrina, Zavial and Martinhal beaches; each with its own charm. Or venture a little further a field to one of the many expansive and dramatic West coast beaches that face the Atlantic. Alternatively drive inland through the rolling hillside country to stroll in the nearby National Park. The whole area is ideal for both families and those after some solitude. With over 100 restaurants and countless cafes and bars in the Lagos area there is plenty of choice across the region for eating out.
Other Activities: Almaverde has 4 x flood lit tennis courts, kit rental and drop in sessions on Monday and Thursday, professional tennis coaching available.
Golf: AlmaVerde have various arrangements with the local golf courses in close range to the villa offering up to 20% off the fees.
About the owner: We are a family of 4 and just love going to our villa whenever we can. The children are now teenagers and love bringing their friends to come and spend time at the villa and there is always something to go and do be it sunbathing or water sports on the beaches, and surfing and body boarding on the West coast amazing beaches. Whenever we go to another country we always wonder why we went as our villa is so well equipped we love it there smelling the almond trees and the cool breeze when it's 35 degrees always stops you overheating! We think of our villa as our home as we are always moving house due to my husband's job so this is a little bit of stability for us. We have spent time choosing Portuguese pottery and other items for your comfort and would hope you see the villa as home from home.
Why the Owner Chose Burgau: We love Almaverde as it is in the proper old fashioned Portugal region of Burgau rather than the 'Brits on tour' resorts near the airport we absolutely dread finding ourselves in and where you don't hear a single Portuguese voice! Our detached villa is located in the centre of Almaverde and is not overlooked.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: We fell in love with the wonderful smell of the Almond trees along our street. We love the fact we can go back to the calm of Almaverde and in particular our street which is quiet. The villa is detached and is not overlooked and is south facing so you can sit by the pool all day or under the shelter by the kitchen out of the sun but still enjoying being outside. The coolhouse system is truly unique no noisy air conditioning and the whole villa keeps at a cool temperature so you never feel too hot in the hot summer months.
