From the house itself you can go for long coastal walks on the cliff tops towards either Burgau or Lagos. There are many beautiful beaches within a short driving distance, including the surfing beaches of the Western Algarve. There are 3 golf courses nearby, including the famous Boavista Course just 2 kilometres away. There are many places of interest to visit such as the historic town on Lagos with its daily fish market and wide range of shops. The mountain village of Monchique and the spa of the Caladas do Monchique, Sagres and the Lighthouse at Cape St.Vincent are just a short drive away. The main tourist resorts of the Algarve, Praia da Rocha, Albufeira, Vilamoura, are also nearby and well worth a visit.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: The house is family owned. We have been holidaying in Portugal for over twenty years along with our four children and many friends. After renting for many years we took the plunge and the house was purchased in 2006 and we haven't looked back! Portugal and more specifically Praia da Luz, has offered us a welcome break from our busy working lives. The children have also enjoyed the area having 'grown up' from toddlers into adults who now holiday there many times a year.
Why the Owner Chose Burgau: This property offers fantastic ocean views in a quiet and yet convenient location on the edge of the village of Praia da Luz. It offers excellent and spacious accommodation for people who wish to get away from it all with a larger family group or friends. The house is large enough to give everyone their own space, while at the same time having spacious indoor and outdoor areas for people to be together. Luz itself is delightful all year round, offering something for everyone. There are quiet coastal walks nearby, fantastic beaches with a wide range of water sports, picturesque villages and towns either a walk or short drive away, various sporting opportunities and most of all beautiful year round sunshine!
The Unique Benefits at this House: One look from the top balcony sold the house to us - the view is exceptional!
