Burgau house description

We searched for ages for a house to buy in the area, having holidayed in the Algarve. The estate agent took us onto the sun-terrace overlooking the pool, the palm trees and the distant blue seas and knew that Vila Serena was the perfect place for a holiday home. 80% of our visitors have or will return in 2014.
As well as spectacular sea views from the roof terrace with glorious sunsets, there's stunning communal pool, baby pool and gardens. Shade cover for your car.
Fully equipped kitchen: dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine, microwave, etc
Two double bedrooms (hair dryer) with wardrobes.
We can also provide up to two good sized travel cots, high chair and baby bath.
There's a small terrace off the master bedroom, two bathrooms, spacious open plan lounge with 6 seater dining area, a wood burning stove, fully fitted kitchen, well equipped.
The upstairs bathroom has a bath/shower, loo, bidet and vanity unit. The downstairs bathroom has a shower.
Log fire in winter, long-term winter visitors' enquiries are welcome..
The property is equipped with digital TV channels and DVD, a garden terrace and patio furniture with optional BBQ. The roof terrace with loungers for private sunbathing.
There's a paperback library, board games and jigsaws for all ages.
Bed linen & beach towels are provided, you can holiday with hand luggage only!
Our caretaker Joao will meet you at the door and show you in, leaving a key for your use.
The property is located in a smart complex of only 16 houses within enclosed private gardens and a shaded car parking space out front..
Welcome pack available, please ask for details.
For longer stays, Joao and his team will freshen up the house and change sheets & towels for a small charge.

There is also an ABTA-approved shuttle bus service which tours the hotels; one family of 6 had the return journey mini-bus all to themselves!

There is an excellent local bus service that stops close by, its one of those city bus routes that charges about 2-3 Euros per trip or for a day ticket enabling you to get on and off all day long. It's very good for little legs returning from a busy day at the beach, or for exploring the local villages (or Sunday lunch at the lovely Beach Restaurant in Burgau an absolute MUST)

If you are looking to rent TWO OR THREE HOUSES in Vila Serena, we are, with enough notice, able to arrange this with our neighbouring owners. Each house sleeps up to 6.

Testimonials from our visitors!: These are what our visitors have written about their stay in Vila Serena
'..we had a fabulous holiday in your house. It was great for me when I turned the key in the lock and found your house lived up to our expectations'

'.....We had a wonderful holiday, never seen such clear skies for such a long time. Luz is lovely and we found lots to do around about and especially enjoyed walking over the cliffs at Cabo da Sao Vicente and further North towards Aljezur. In fact far too many nice places to list. Maybe calls for another holiday sometime?

Your villa is gorgeous and in a beautiful spot and so well described. Research into any new area is always full of potential problems but none found here. We are absolutely delighted with the whole experience, thank you very much.....'

'We wanted to let you know we really enjoyed our stay in Luz, the facilities in the villa were ideal for our stay' Diane & Adrian
'The accommodation was stunning, exactly what we expected'

MAKE US AN OFFER!: Take a look at the reservations....there's a few spaces, especially early September which is a truly gorgeous time to visit.

                              Praia da Luz is a Village with a famously beautiful Blue Flag beach & sea front, located 5 kilometres from the larger town of Lagos. There are many superb restaurants offering a range of well-priced food, beach cafes, bars, cash machines, a bank, medical centre and supermarkets - the nearest and most interesting being 10 minutes walk away.

                              The beach is gorgeous, sandy and flat with large cliffs to the left, and is half a mile wide. Water sports available in the summer months. Beach sun beds and parasols can be hired for a small fee. A promenade running the length of the beach is fringed with palm trees and various cafes.

                              There are many good golf courses close to Praia de Luz the nearest two being Boavista and Parque de Floresta which are amongst the best in Europe.

                              The sand-duned beaches on the west coast, 45 minutes drive, provide brilliant surfing and parascending. Lively club scene in Lagos -10-20 euros in a taxi.

                              Soothing relaxation can be had at the spa, a five-minute drive away.
