The roof terrace is the biggest hit by far
Lovely apartment, very well equipped.
The sun terrace off all rooms is perfect in the morning, the roof terrace sublime all day.
Really only fit for four people, though: we had five (one in a z bed), but that was in the living room and made it feel a little cramped. Plus, downstairs complained about the noise of the bed on the tiles.
Overall, a lovely apartment in a very sweet village and well worth booking.
Lovely place to stay
We really enjoyed our stay at Ian and Gillian's apartment in Burgau. It had everything we required as well as fantastic views over Burgau.
Home from Home. Everything just perfect . Could not find any faults.
Furniture and equipment all here. Area beautiful. Apartment so peaceful with amazing views.
Loved our stay
Really enjoyed our stay at the apartment, especially after travelling 10 nights in Italy and a 2 week driving tour of Portugal (first time in Portugal). It was a great reward to be able to "have a home base" for 6 nites after living out of suitcases! The apartment was very clean and beautifully furnished and we loved the terrace and roof deck for relaxing with a glass of wine (or 2) and tapas after a day of exploring. The apt had absolutely everything we needed to be comfortable and it was nice to be able to do laundry too. The bed was very comfortable. We were a close walk into town and restaurants. All were good that we went to, it was also nice to use the built in grill to eat at home. The bathrooms were very modern with good waterpressure and lots of hotwater. The "welcome pack" of butter, buns, meats, cheese and milk were much appreciated for a reasonable cost. Wifi was strong. Overall a perfect place to stay and we would definately stay again if/when we come back to the Algarve. Ian was also great to deal with and answered any questions promptly.

Excellent. Quality through and through.
A very cosy apartment; impossible to find fault............but wait.............I just remembered - the ledge on the side of the bath is too narrow to support a wine glass!
We certainly plan to return!

Have been going to Burgau for many years and stayed in various different apartments, this has been one of the best. Communication and booking process with Ian was simple and straightforward. The apartment is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need and good quality furnishings. Beautiful views over the village from the balcony and all rooms, a lovely sunny place to sit for breakfast. The private roof terrace is an added bonus for afternoon sun and evening drinks. Loved the built in barbeque on the balcony for grilling fresh fish for our supper. Hope to book again soon.
