Burgau villa description

Vila Margarida is a luxury private villa rental in Praia da Luz on the lovely Algarve coast of Portugal. It is one of the best villas in the lovely small town resort, boasting great views, lovely private heated swimming pool and tennis court set in a beautiful established garden of an acre which gives a high degree of privacy. Add all this to the fact that Vila Margarida is very centrally located and only 8 minutes walk to the beach and less to many bars, restaurants and shops and you will see that this villa offers the best of both worlds, a central location and amazing privacy and facilities.
The villa has 5 bedrooms, 2 double and 3 twin 4 on the ground floor, 3 opening onto the pool terrace. There are 4 bath/shower rooms. The lounge, dining room,1 dbl and kitchen are on the first floor and the large first floor terrace has wonderful views to the sea and cliffs overlooking Luz Bay.
Beside the pool is a cabana area with bar, BBQ, outdoor kitchen and dining area. Real poolside luxury


Golf: The Algarve is well known as a golfers paradise and Vila Margarida makes a great base for a golfing holiday, whether all members of the group are playing or some go off to play whilst the others relax by the pool or play tennis.
There are many excellent courses within a 25 minute drive including Palmares, Penina, Parque da Floresta and the closest , Boavista is only 5 minutes drive from the villa.

Lagos: The beautiful town of Lagos, described by many as the loveliest town on the Algarve with its old Roman walls and narrow windy streets, is a short 10 minute drive away. It has many excellent beaches, a lovely marina and fishing port and great shopping and bars, restaurants and nightclubs. Mant boat trips run from here including dolphin watching and grotto visits. There are also deep sea fishing excursions available. There are lots of lovely pavement cafes and also entertainers and craftsmen selling their wares. At night it has a wonderful atmosphere and the streets are packed with locals and tourists out for a stroll and watching the entertainers.


Other Nearby Attractions: As well as all that Praia da Luz has to offer there are many other nearby activities for those who hire a car or who travel around by taxi or public transport.
There are 2 water slide parks within a 25 minute drive, a marine wildlife park, a large modern shopping centre and a small zoo.
The West coast beaches are huge and really beautiful, with large breakers in most weathers. They are ideal for surfing and several have surf schools and board hire. The closest are about 20 minutes drive. Also to the West is the nautical town of Sagres with some lovely sea-food restaurants and the most South -Westerly point in Europe, Cape St Vincent with its high cliffs, fort and lighthouse..
The ancient Algarve capital of Silves is a 30 minute drive to the East and has a lovely old castle and a restored cork factory which is now a museum. The grounds hold restaurants and in the summer there is often entertainment in the grounds in the evening (look for local adverts)

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: I love renting Vila Margarida to holdaymakers-nothing is nicer than hearing people's stories of happy holidays on their return home!

                      Why the Owner Chose Burgau:
                      We had holidayed in Praia da Luz since we were teenagers and when we were lucky enough to be able to buy a holiday home it was the only place we wanted to buy! Vila Margarida was the ideal villa in the ideal location!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Vila Margarida is ideal because it is so private and yet to close to the beach and all the bars, show and restaurants-the ideal combination.
