Guestbook comments from the owner

We decided to have a family holiday with my son and daughter and their partners and my 84 year old mum and I knew I'd found the right place in Casa do Poco as soon as I found it.. All on one level.. Plenty of space and plenty of bedrooms / showers.. And having just had our week there I can honestly say it was even better than the pictures!! The perfect place to relax with a lovely feel to it ... Being such a long house ... and with rooftop terrace...I frequently found myself standing in the kitchen wondering where everybody was!!.Its not possible to get under each others feet here! . The pool was loads of fun..and outdoor living is easy with two BBQs to choose from..Fatima the maid is a darling (and gives you a chance to try out \learn Portuguese).. . Burgau was just lovely as I remembered it 20 years ago.. So many nice places to eat..easy access to Luz and Lagos as well as Burgau.The owner, .Penny is so helpful and friendly with loads of advice and info prior to the holiday.. Fantastic holiday in a lovely peaceful lication...Would def go back!!

Eine wunderschöne Zeit in einem tollen Haus!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben Anfang August mit zwei Familien (8 Personen) zwei Wochen Urlaub in der Villa Do Poço verbracht.

Die Villa ist ruhig gelegen & man kann über einen Küstenweg den Strand und Burgau erreichen, obwohl wir dies meist mit dem Auto machten, da es doch gute 20 Minuten Fußweg waren und mit den ganzen Strandsachen bepackt, wählten wir meist den bequemeren Weg.

Ein Auto in dieser Gegend ist ratsam, um einkaufen zu können, aber auch um sich die schöne Umgebung mit vielen tollen Buchten anzusehen.

Das Highlight des Hauses ist der große Pool mit viel Platz für Liegen, dazu eine riesige Dachterrasse mit tollem Ausblick.

Im Inneren überraschte uns die Großzügigkeit der offenen Küche und des Wohnbereiches. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet und wir vermissten nichts. Auch die 4 Schlafräume boten genügend Platz und waren etwas älter, aber gemütlich eingerichtet. Eines der Zimmer hatte sogar noch eine eigene Dusche eingebaut. Die weiteren zwei Bäder waren sehr gut.

Das Haus war sehr sauber, was hauptsächlich an Maria lag, die jeden 2. Tag vorbeischaute, um Handtücher zu wechseln und zu putzen. Da wir das vorher nicht wussten, waren wir sehr positiv überrascht und es rundete unseren Urlaub zusätzlich ab.

Uns hat Portugal und auch Burgau mit seiner Nähe zu Lagos und seinem schönen Strand so gut gefallen, dass wir bestimmt nochmal dort unseren Urlaub verbringen werden (sehr gerne auch wieder in der Villa). Zumal man dort auch in der Hauptsaison nicht das Gefühl des Massentourismus verspürt.

Vielen Dank für alles!

Casa Do Poco

  • 5 of 5

This villa is lovely and it's so big, We are a family of 5 with grown up children and they could not believe how well equipped the villa was. We all loved the pool and the sun loungers were great. It's very pretty at night with the lights on as we sat and had our evening meal. There's a lovely walk into Burgau over the hills just turn right out of the gate and the path is just up the road and it takes about 15 minutes, Burgau has some lovely restaurants but if you go the one on the beach it's best to book. We loved Lagos lots of nice shops and plenty of restaurants. Be aware if you go along the toll road you will need a tracker in your hire car but it's easy and the rental people sorted out the payment via credit card. Views from the roof terrace are lovely our Son proposed to his girlfriend on the terrace so romantic.

Maria comes to clean through the week and if you make time to talk to her she's really friendly and very helpful.

We are already booked to go back 2018 and are really looking forward to it. Thank you for letting us stay at your lovely villa.

Super familietur.

  • 4 of 5

Vi havde 14 dejlige dage i et smukt område tæt på skøn strand ved Burgau. Huset ligger fint med en stor pool og særdeles god plads.

Området er bare smukt med dejlige vandrerture langs kysten til Luz og Burgau med mange små laguner . Burgau er en rigtig hyggelig by med gode restauranter.

Vakantie Lagos

  • 4 of 5

Hele fijne vakantie gehad in heel mooi groot huis. Voldoende slaapruimte en heel ruim fijn zwembad. Voor grote families zeker aan te raden.

Wel in bezit van auto want ligt net buiten de plaats, maar zeer de moeite waard om te huren voor een leuke vakantie...
