Burgau apartment description

Situated in a conservation zone, overlooking a peaceful country valley,
the property is a renovated farmhouse with some traditional rustic features but with modern facilities, including Wi-Fi.
There is an extensive garden and ample parking space for visitors.
The cottage, which used to be an art studio, now comprises of four rooms: a living room with two sofa beds, a small bedroom with double bed, a dining kitchen with cooker, fridge and microwave oven.
In a secluded location, the property is within easy walking distance of the pretty fishing village of Burgau with its sandy beach, cafes, shops,, and bars.
The nearby West coast is famous for its surfing beaches and the south coast for its safe, sandy beaches.
The neighbouring historic town of Lagos offers a picturesque port and marina, castle, churches, quaint old streets, and busy night life.
And in the other direction is Sagres, the most south westerly point in Europe from where explorers have set out to discover the world across the seas.
