Personal Statement from the owners Ian & Sara: Hello, We are a professional couple who purchased our villa as the perfect location for family holidays. We had been coming to the wonderful Westrern Algarve for over 10 years before buying, so took our time to pick the best area, development and villa design before putting down some roots. Its a wonderful unspoilt area of natural beauty ideal for family holidays with many excellent beaches, fishing villages, restaurants and lots to do. For golfers there a many courses close by too.
The kids grew up with holidays many around the area before we purchased our little piece of paradise; which we now let out for others to enjoy when unable to be there ourselves. We only have one second home so ask guests to treat it with the same care and respect of their own home, whilst also enjoying it to the full.
The Almaverde development represents great quality of life whilst holidaying with its ultra low density, high quality of development that has generated a small community of villas with on site access to: Tennis, Football, Cycling, Playground and Fitness Studio and Health Treamments also on offer. Overall the development has a community feel - not too many properties, not at all built up, but also not so few to feel isolated. Each set within their own gardens, ours affords total privacy without being overlooked front or rear. We love it!
The kids (young adults now at 18 & 19) still love to come back year after year and often bring friends. We also often bring friends of family with us too as the villa comfortably takes two families.
Each year we continue to invest in keeping the villa up to date in top class condition with new poolside furniture, parasols, bedding and bathroom towels. We hope you get to enjoy it too!
Accommodating up to 8 people in luxurious comfort, the villa has four bedrooms each sleeping two, comprising 2 double suites with en-suite bathrooms and 2 twin bedrooms. All bedrooms are spacious and furnished to the highest standard of finish throughout, three including fitted wardrobes, dressing tables and bathrooms with underfloor heating, bath or powerful shower, and access direct to the garden or pool.

About the owner: Hello, we are a professional couple who let out our private villa to guests via this web site. We live in a small village on the Hampshire/Berk boarder with our two daughters Abigail and Emily. The villa is our second home for family & friends. We have been coming to the area on family holidays for many years, we never grow tired of it. In fact the kids (young adults now aged 21 & 19 yrs) still love to bring friends too. We often also invite members of our extended family as it comfortably takes two families of four. We typically visit about 3-5 times per year, so do everything possible to ensure others to enjoy it as much as we do by constantly upgrading with new bedding, towels, parasols and loungers to keep in top quality. Our villa is always maintained to the highest possible standard.
Why the Owner Chose Burgau: We chose our villa because of its wonderful south facing location on a quiet development a short distance from the many beaches and fishing villages on the western Algarve. Its quiet, peacefull, sunny and restful all year round. There is free WiFi available at the reception building or via a thumb drive in the villa, which can be topped up
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: South facing villa and pool with unique outdoor chill out lounge area up on the sun terrace for entertaining, eating 'al fresco' and sharing a glass of something under the stars.
