Burgau apartment description

Casa Cian is a beautifully maintained and recently renovated 2 bedroom 8th floor duplex apartment in the Luztur Complex situated right in the centre of Luz, it is a 2 minute walk to the beach. As the end apartment in the tallest building in Luz it has the most stunning panoramic view from sunrise to sunset in all of Luz.

The upstairs level consists of 2 bedrooms (sleeps 4), both with sea views.. Plus a bathroom with state of the art shower unit .

Down stairs is the kitchen, spacious living room and large balcony area. The kitchen at the entrance is fully fitted with all mod cons and makes maximum use of the available space. It is bright and airy.

The living room is spacious, warm and welcoming with an open fire for winter months, it has a L shaped settee, subdued lighting and a large oval shaped dining table leading on to the balcony. Freesat Satellite TV / DVD / Wi-Fi access / iPod docking station

The balcony is large with an overhanging area for sunbathing.

Praia da Luz area: Praia da Luz meaning beach of light is a former fishing village and despite development over the years it has lost none of it's charm or character. There are plenty of good restaurants in Luz, especially sea food. And the beach itself is beautiful for an early morning or evening stroll.

Lagos is the nearest town. It has lots of history and is well worth a visit. It benefits from a strong summer sun with a cooling breeze. Spring and Autumn weather is glorious with warm fresh days and balmy evening breezes.
Lagos is an old Moorish port. It has a more lively night life than Luz and has plenty of good restaurants to choose from. It has a daily indoor market selling fresh fish and vegetables and you will enjoy just strolling along it's old narrow cobbled streets or the new tastefully developed Marina, offering boat trips to visit the famous grottos and caves of Ponte de Piedade.

Praia da Luz area: The beach and pace of life make it ideal for a very relaxing holiday. From the atmospheric Fortaleza overlooking the rugged cliffs, you can stroll along the promenade towards the beautiful beach, and enjoy a coffee along the way in one of the many small sea front restaurants.

There are a good choice of restaurants in Luz and if you like seafood, you won't be disappointed.
There are also good cafes/restaurants and take-aways that are reasonably priced. There is a very good Portuguese run restaurant on the beach itself which is not overly priced.

There are now 2 local supermarkets right beside the apartment, a recently opened SPAR in the same block, you simply take the elevator downstairs. It has a good choice of products and is good value.The other supermarket is Baptista's which is just across the road from the apartment.

Casa Cian and Luz: The sunrises are stunning, rising over the sea at the far end of the beach. From here I can watch the fishing boats come in as the fishermen wrap up another nights catch. At sunset I can sit out and enjoy the warm glow of the evening light on Rocha Negra, literally translated ‘Black Cliff’, the cliff at the far end of the beach which was formed from volcanic activity.
Luz is ideally suited to both the independent traveller who wants to explore, hike and cycle, but equally it is a quieter family resort catering to kids.

It really has everything you need close at hand, and if you play Golf, you have a choice of several courses close by and great deals in winter time.

I would highly recommend Luz as an all year round destination, with 3000 hours of sunshine per annum, the equivalent to California, how can you go wrong.

                          Praia da Luz is a small sleepy traditional Portuguese village just 5km from the historical town of Lagos which is the major town in the area. It is one of those hidden gems of places that unlike other resorts has so much more to offer, from breathtaking cliff walks to a beautiful south facing sheltered bay, a choice of very good restaurants, an old fort, the atmospheric Restaurant Fortaleza overlooking the rugged cliffs, and the remains of an ancient Roman Ruins.

                          Nestled in a cove which was formerly a small fishing village Luz has grown over the past 30 years that I have been visiting, it has now extended back from the ocean with many new tasteful developments, from Villas and Apartments in town to beach front studios. Further along the coast there are a number of quieter beaches, and beach bars until you reach the most south westerly point in Europe, in Sagres, the stunning cliff tops of Cabo de San Vicente.

                          Golf: There are numerous golf courses within easy reach of Luz in either direction. The apartment is ideally suitable for golfers as it is perfectly located within easy access to numerous courses.There is plenty of room in the apartment for clubs. With over 30 courses in the region there are plenty to choose from. Here is a list of a few close by : 1- PALMARES GOLF- 2km east of Lagos - 18 Holes - par 71. This course has views of the bay & historical town as well as Monchique mountains to the north, using its natural resources to maximum advantage. 2 - BOAVISTA GOLF - 18 Holes - par 71. This impressive championship course offers a number of tee options, challenging for all levels of golfers with the ocean visible from most of the holes. Water comes into play on 5 holes. 3 - PENINA GOLF - 18 Holes - par 73.

                          Owner info

                          About the owner: Originally from Dublin, I worked on cruise ships as a photographer for 15 years and Praia da Luz was always my first port of call when I was home.I lived in Luz for 4 years from 1986 - 1990 running a bar there and I have been visiting now for 27 years. I am currently living in Dublin but escape 3 or 4 times a year to what I consider my little piece of paradise. It is great to be able to share this with others.

                          Why the Owner Chose Burgau:
                          My father retired here in 1987, we looked at a few apartments to buy but once we saw the view from here that was it. We knew we would never get better. The location is perfect, it is right in the heart of the village and just a few minutes walk to the beach. There are 2 supermarkets in the immediate vicinity and a good choice of restaurants and coffee shops.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          Stunning 270 degree views from Sunrise to Sunset..The balcony holds the light all day long and there is nothing more magical than sitting out at dusk and watching the fading light of day on Rocha Negra in front of you. You also have the same sea view from both bedrooms. As it is the end apartment it is very bright with light pouring into every room. I have maximised this by putting in new windows, frosted glass front door and bedroom doors. The apartment has been completely upgraded over the years. It is a very quiet block with most owners having bought their apartments as holiday homes for their own occasional use. So mostly the only sounds you will hear are the waves breaking down below. Oh and the seagulls flying past.
