Burgau apartment description

This apartment has two bedrooms and two bathrooms (1 ensuite). It also has a living/dining room. There are two double beds and one single bed and up to 5 people can be accommodated. The sea views are stunning from the balcony and main bedroom.
It has a cottage style ambiance but is fully equipped for the modern visitor. The apartment has internet access using your own mobile device such as laptop, iPad or smart phone. UK TV is also available through the internet. There is also a DVD player and Radio/CD player. The 'library' has books for almost every taste and visitors are encouraged to use this facility.
Other equipment includes a cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster, washing machine, iron and ironing board.
There are also a number of cafes/bars which offer free Wi-Fi but you must have your own mobile device.

Restaurants, Bars and Other Local Information: There are two supermarkets with all you will ever need during your stay.

All of the restaurants located in the village are first class and sea food is a speciality - at very reasonable prices.
The restaurants cater for children and many offer a children's menu or half portions. Just check before you are seated. It is advisable to book tables in restaurants in advance to avoid disappointment particularly during the high season.
The restaurants welcome children so babysitting is often not required. However, babysitting can be arranged if desired for a romantic evening.

There are a number of bars and all should be sampled just for variety. None play loud music.

There are three ATMs in the village so obtaining cash should not be a problem.

The Pharmacy is located adjacent to the apartment and Luzdoc (a doctor service) is available in the village in case of 'little emergencies'.
Contact the owner for further information if required.

Car: Not Necessary

The beautiful former fishing village of Praia da Luz is located in a small sandy bay in the Western Algarve. It is located close to the historic town of Lagos made famous by Henry the Navigator who sailed out from here in his caravelas on his voyages of discovery.

The village of Luz is perfect for a relaxing holiday or for young families with but there are plenty of activities available on the beach or nearby. Golfing, sailing, fishing, walking are examples of activities available.

The apartment itself is located right in the village in the well known Waterside area. It boasts spectacular sea views while maintaining a cottage style ambience. The lovely sandy beach, promenade, restaurants and pubs are just a short stroll from the apartment. Access to the amenities is no effort whatsoever for older persons or families with young children.

The restaurants are first class with sea food a speciality and at reasonable prices. The pubs are warm and welcoming.

Praia da Luz is just idyllic

Golf: There are many excellent golf clubs located in the area and these are more reasonably priced than those located around Villamoura and Vale do Lobo.

The local course is Boavista and is very user friendly. Parque da Floresta is located a little further west but is quite hilly.

Palmares has spectacular sea views over Meia Praia and Alvor Estuary. It also has a few links holes near the sea.

Gramacho and Vale da Pinta are located close to one another near Lagoa and could be useful to take in as a package. There are other local courses such as Morgado, Penina, Alto and Silves which may be of interest.

Book your courses and tee times over the internet to avail of discounted green fees.

Rather than bring your own clubs, you may wish to hire clubs. Clubs, etc. can be picked up at Faro Airport. I have tried this service and it works very well. Contact the owner about this facility if you need advice.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are Paul and Sheila from Ireland and we purchased our apartment in 2006 as a holiday home and a retirement hideaway in the sun - when we retire.

Why the Owner Chose Burgau:
Two and a half hours flying time from home is the main reason for choosing the Algarve together with the friendliness of the Portuguese people who don't take their tourist trade for granted. The choice of Praia da Luz is obvious to anyone who has been there. It's quiet and suits the more mature types and young families. The view from the apartment over the ocean and beach was the clincher for us. Breakfast and lunch on the balcony with panoramic sea view - fantastic!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The sea views, proximity to all of the amenities but especialy the beach and excellent restaurants. Please see comments received from our guests below. We no not seek these comments but are please to receive them nonetheless and hear about happy holidays.
