Burgau apartment description

We have a modern and spacious apartment available for rental in the exclusive St James' development - ideal for families - with the Blue Flag beach of Praia de Luz, only 500 metres away. The apartment has access to a large communal swimming pool, sunbathing area with free loungers, separate children’s pool, children's playground - all set within beautifully lawned gardens, all secure and only for the use of guests. The apartment has 2 bedrooms (one double, one twin) both with fitted wardrobes and sea views from the balcony. IIt has a fully equipped kitchen with electric cooker,microwave,washing machine and dishwasher. There is also a breakfast bar, large dining area and large lounge area with satellite TV (limited channels) and DVD. There is also a spacious balcony off the lounge with sea view to watch the sunset. Lift and stairs to the apartment make it great for families and also the less mobile. A great apartment, in a great location with great sea views - makes a great holiday.

Water- Related Activities: Lots of water- related sports and activities are available locally including: water skiing, jet skiing, sailing and all types of surfing. Luz is an excellent place to learn to dive, with a choice of local dive schools which train to the internationally recognised PADI certificate standard. Big Game is available in Florida style game fishing boats, and there are many boat trips along the coastline. Surfers will note that the apartment is only a short drive from the excellent surfing beaches on the Algarve's west coast.

Golf Information: The Algarve is a golfers' paradise with all year round availability and mild winters. There are 24 golf courses across the Algarve and 5 within 20 minutes drive from the apartment. The nearest Boa Vista is 4 km away, par 71, handicap card required, views of the Atlantic and Monchique mountains. Palmeres- 15 minute drive away, par 71, gentle slopes above the beach, Parque de Floresta 15 minutes drive away, par 72, rolling hill terrain and Penina (designed by Henry Cotton),par 73, handicap card required -20 minutes drive away.

Getting Around: Praia da Luz is approximately 50 minutes drive down the A22 motorway from Faro Airport. If you plan do do lots of sightseeing and/or golfing we recommend a hire car. There are many car hire firms available at the airport and can be booked in advance from England. Alternatively you can book a taxi or shared minibus for journeys to the apartment and back to the airport. Once in Luz a car is not necessary as everything is within walking distance. The local bus stop for a service up and down the coast and into Lagos is situated 2-3 minutes walk away, next to the taxi rank. A taxi into Lagos for an evening is approximately £8.
