It’s easy to see why the Western Algarve is a popular holiday destination; sandy beaches, small bays and coves, grottoes, warm climate and easy access from Faro airport means the Western Algarve is perfect for both short breaks and longer holidays. And if you’re worried about the crowds, don’t be. There’s plenty to offer people in search of a more peaceful break.
This lovely, luxury apartment is part of the Domusiberica Burgau Club, a luxury, self contained complex on the edge of the pretty and unspoilt fishing village of Burgau.
Overall: The apartment is ideal for couples and families looking for relaxing and independent holiday in a quieter part of the Western Algarve.
