                              Year Purchased: 2007

                              About the owner: We are a retired couple although, being Scottish, we live in Pembrokeshire and have been in love with the Algarve for 40 years so we purchased this apartment to spend our holidays in and to let it to Guests, family and friends.

                              Why the Owner Chose Burgau:
                              Pria da Luz is a wonderful village with many ex-pats living there happily amongst the local people. The location is perfect for relaxed holidays. We also accept payments by Paypal if you use the 'friends and family' option to save charges. Pay to

                              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                              We loved the spacious all round garden with numerous fruit trees and the white tiles on all floors. It feels so homely, bright and welcoming just walking through the front door and the steel retractable shutters give perfect security. Ocean Club pools include 2015.
