Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

Why the Owner Chose Burgau:
We have been holidaying in Portugal regularly since we were married in the mid eighties and had always dreamt of owning our own property in the western Algarve. In 2004 we decided to take the plunge. After viewing several properties we were shown what is now our apartment in St James and fell in love with the sea views and spacious rooms. We holiday in our apartment at least twice a year, with our two children, although they are both now old enough to go their own way! Our aim is that the apartment should be a home from home for us and anyone who stays there.
